Ain’t It Pretty: Marina Bychkova

Just Take My Money, Lego. Just Take it.

Ross Campbell Reminds Me Why Leo is the Best Turtle

I always get slack when I say Leonardo is my favourite Ninja Turtle and part of me understands why. It’s the same reason Cyclops or Superman get shafted — he’s the goodie two-shoes leader that tends to work by the book. And normally I’d agree, but not when it comes to Leo. People favour Raph […]

However, today, after visiting the creator, Kyle Hilton’s Tumblr I saw a set that piqued my interest… a Drive Set! Yes, I can now have my […]
