Batman Minifigures – Progress

Batman Minifigures – Progress

The Lego Batman Minifigures Collection Continues:

So far in this series we have managed to obtain 7 of the 20 Collectible Lego Batman minifigures, so in total one third of the full collection of twenty obtainable in this series, this is what we have so far:

  • Vacation Batman™
  • The Joker™ – Arkham Asylum
  • Dick Grayson™
  • Nurse Harley Quinn™
  • Orca™
  • The Calculator™
  • King Tut™
    Batman Minifigs

This is what one Lego Fan has said about the latest Lego Batman Minifigures collection:

I really like these Lego Batman Movie figures a lot here’s the one’s I was able to find first is Pink Power Batgirl I really like this figure and is a different and new verison of Batgirl which is new plus I like her pink Baterang which I really like alot, The Eraser is a cool figure plus I like how he resembles a pencil which is very cool Nurse Harley Quinn I like alot and at first I wasnt’t sure about getting her but after awhile I decided I did and she is very cute plus I like her clipboard with the Joker and on the side it reads H & J, Orca is one of my favorites and for me finding him was the hardest but I really like how he looks just like a Killer Whale with the color and plus he goes great with the Shark Suit Guy from series 15 and last is March Harriet this figure is not bad and I like her brown bunny ears and her costume with her gun but I think she goes well with the Bunny Suit Guy from Series 7. These are all excellent figures and I might think about maybe getting one of the Batman figures but overall I really like all these figures and can’t wait to see the movie next month when it comes out.

We are really excited for the release of the New Lego Batman Movie next month.

As well as Lego being Fun and Exciting with lots of characters and always changing, it is also a hugely educational Toy as well and here is an article that has been written about the Top 10 Ways Legos Are Educational for Your Child: Learning with LEGO, please give it a read.

These are the characters in the Lego Batman Minifgure series, and note there are 20 to collect, which is a Larger Minifgure collector series than Lego have ever released before, as Lego say this is a Limited Edition Collectors Series and therefore will be like the Lego Movie Series and have an even greater future potential value:

Merry Christmas 2016

It has been a very big year for us at Silly Billy’s as many of you will know. After the floods of last year we closed down for a time and then re-opened on 25th March 2016 this year in brand new premises. Our new shop has been getting nothing but great feedback from all of the people that have visited and we honestly love it. It is a complete transformation from our old shop in the Old Mill.

We have had some staff come and go, Alex is now working down South for the Ambulance Service as a Paramedic and we wish him all the best in his career.
Finn is still with us, part-time, and looking to get a new job in his apprenticed work of Electrical Engineering so if anyone is looking for a very talented and enthusiastic electrical engineer then please get in touch and we can put you in touch with Finn. Easiest way to get in touch with us is through Silly Billy’s Facebook page or email us at:-info@sillybillystoyshop.com

Obviously Christmas is one of the busiest times for  us as a Toy Shop and this year is our First Christmas in our brand new toy shop. We have tried our utmost to cover all the bases for Christmas 2016 and we hope we have fulfilled the desires of our Customers young and old. If anyone has any feedback we are happy to receive it and you can write reviews for us on Google Plus or Facebook if you would like to.

What else is happening in Hebden Bridge?

Well it’s raining a bit and there is some stormy weather predicted so the BBC or some other outfit have parked a satellite recording Van just down the street from us, potentially to obtain some news-worthy content about heavy precipitation again in Hebden Bridge and potential flooding !! We obviously hope that will not be the case after the devastation caused in the Boxing Day Floods in Hebden Bridge of last year. Nonetheless I received a text today from the Flood Warning Service about potential problems in the Upper Calder Valley.

I  completed my own Set of Lego Minifgures Series 16 some time back and it was a good generic set in my opinion with a possibly emphasis on global warming with the amount of Penguin related figures that were included. That particular phenomena is probably not helping the amount of water that is currently falling from the skies!!

The Festive Fandango:

This continues at Silly Billy’s and Homely at Hebden, next door to us, and you can pick up a sticker for your Festive Fandango card every time you spend a minimum of five pounds.

Christmas Opening:

Calderdale Family Fun Day and Mytholmroyd Christmas Market

Tomorrow is Calderdale Family Fun Day, see the flier below. I met one of the Organisers at the Mytholmroyd Christmas Market today, which was a great event and Silly Billy’s Toy Shop  was very happy to be there. We all had a good day overall and the event was well organised. So well done to all those who made it happen.

A special thank-you goes out to Peter Metcalfe of Pennine Provisions who helped rescue us when the transport we had planned fell through.
(Thanks so much Peter, you are a star !!)

Next year Sillly Billy’s Toy Shop will also hope to have a presence at the Mytholmroyd Christmas Market. If you are interested in Silly Billy’s attending any other events then get in touch.

Calderdale Family Fun Day is being held in Todmorden tomorrow and below is the flyer:-
Calderdale Family Fun Day

From 1330 until 1600 at Todmorden Sports Centre Call 01422 242124 for more details, a Charity Event

Additionally Rebecca is doing a sprint triathlon to raise money for Home-Start Calderdale.
Please sponsor her if you can: mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/rebeccagodar

This is what the folks at Wikipedia say about Todmorden:

Todmorden (/ˈtɒdmədən/; locally /ˈtɒdmɔːdən/[1] /ˈtɒdmərdən/ or /tɔːmdɪn/)[2] is a market town and civil parish[3] in the Upper Calder Valley in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, England. It is 17 miles (27 km) from Manchester and in 2011 had a population of 15,481.[4]

Todmorden is at the confluence of three steep-sided Pennine valleys and is surrounded by moorlands with outcrops of sandblasted gritstone.

The historic boundary between Yorkshire and Lancashire is the River Calder and its tributary, the Walsden Water, which run through the town. The administrative border was altered by the Local Government Act 1888 placing the whole of the town within the West Riding.

The town is served by Todmorden and Walsden railway stations.
Short and sweet, full URL to the wiki page is here

Lastly don’t forget about Silly Billy’s ongoing Lego Competition, the Big One, anyone can take part and it’s completely free to enter.
