Lego 71002: Lady Robot

My last post looked at an evil robot, so this time around I thought we needed to show off the lady robot from the Lego Minifigures series 11.  She's got some nice graphics on her cubist head, torso and legs.  However, unlike the newer robots these days, she isn't powered by an internal nuclear reactor, or solar energy.  No, she's got a big old wind up handle on the back so her friend can get her all powered up.  Hey before you guys get all hot and bothered about this mixed race relationship, did you notice her gentleman friend is actually a cyborg?

Lego 8833: Evil Robot

Hi Lego fans.  Today I went to another ToysRus mini figure exchange and got some new figures.  They were handed out in little ziplock bags when you gave them staff one of your old minifigs.   Here's the Evil Robot with his claw hand and deadly ray gun.  I really like his cool buckethead helmet and he is absolutely scary looking without his helmet.

Lego 75003: A-wing rebel pilot

We heard there's some illegals around here

Rounded up and subdued Sir

Resisting arrest, someone's gonna get a beat down.

Yesterday, ToysRus Canada had a Lego Star Wars figure exchange day.  More about it here:

 If you brought in an old Star Wars figure, ToysRus would give you a new one to replace it, according to the flyer.  When I got to the store, the store manager had some figures in a ziplock bag and she was passing them out to employees, so they could be attached on their name badges.  I think they started out with 4 or 5 new ones, and I've featured a couple of them in the pictures above.  I traded in some droids which I had a ton of, and got some clonetroopers I didn't have.  Also got a few of the A-wing starfighter mechanics, their helmets are cool.

I went to a second Toysrus store in the afternoon and all they had left were other peoples trade-in figures, nothing new left.  I traded more droids and got a Jar Jar Binks figure, and a Hoth soldier with a busted hand.
Let me know if you went to the Toysrus exchange and if you scored any cool new Star Wars figures.
