happy meal us - transformers prime

The latest Happy Meal toys for McDonalds US features our favorite transforming buddies the Transformers Prime. Last year's release features this robots in their vehicle or alternate mode. This time they are released in their robot mode which is better than the vehicle mode in my opinion. The set consist of three Autobots and three Decepticons. The toys still have the usual spring action gimmicks and shooting gimmicks.

happy meal philippines - ronald and friends

When I saw this new set of toys for Happy Meal it brings back a lot of fond memory of my childhood. It is very seldom nowadays that McDonald’s release new toys featuring Ronald and the gang. I still remember the times when Happy Meal toys were McDonalds character in different themes like jungle, circus, astronauts etc. I really hope that once in a while they will use their characters in Happy Meal toys.

I was a little disappointed with this set since most of the toys are not figures or collectibles. But on the other hand I’m happy too since the only figure I could consider in this set is Grimace my favourite character. I’m planning to get some doubles of Grimace to add in my Grimace collection.

lego minifigure: surfer

“G’day, dudes and dudettes!”

Wherever the waves are radical and the surf is bodacious, that’s where you’ll find the Surfer. He’s the most relaxed guy around, but as soon as it’s time to hop on his surfboard, nothing can keep him from hanging ten from sunrise until sunset!

The Surfer has traveled all over the world and surfed at every beach he can find. No matter where he goes, he’s always sure to find a fun challenge on the rolling, splashing ocean!

happy meal philippines - young justice

Here is the set for the boys of Mcdonal's Happy Meal Philippines, featuring Young Justice from DC Comics. The set includes Batman, Robin, Superman and Superboy.
I'm going to have two sets of this but change my mind in the end. I have a spare Superman and I'm planning to give it away here in my blog site as a contest prize. Any suggestions on what kind of contest should I run is very much appreciated.

happy meal philippines - strawberry shortcake

To open the year 2013, McDonald's Philippines give us two exciting sets of toys. Here is the set for the girls featuring Strawberry Shortcake. All four figures are scented and the smell is not bad. The sculpt of the figures is good, also the paint application. Back then I would easily skip this set, but because of my baby girl I only lack Orange Blossom.

lego minifigure: vampire

“I’m supposed to drink WHAT?!”

The Vampire may be a 200-year-old creature of nightmare and legend, but that doesn’t mean that he has to be uncivilized. He likes to read comic books with his pet bat, take long walks by the seaside (after sunset, of course), and throw huge parties in his big stone castle.

He’s not a big fan of the more traditional vampire activities (though he has to admit that the flying is pretty cool), and much prefers a fruit smoothie to the classic beverage of choice. The local villagers might have been a little spooked at first, but now they’re very excited to have a friendly vampire in town!
