Grown Men Don't Play With Toys!

Now that Christmas has come and gone, I'm sure many of you are still cleaning up as the children of the household play with their new toys.  Oh the joys of being a kid.  

What I wouldn't give to be able to open up the latest addition to my Kurt Suzuki PC:


But I can't and I won't... because I'm told that grown men don't play with toys.  Oh well, it'll make a find addition to my Oakland A's shelf in my office.

If you're wondering what you're staring at... it's a 2012 Generation One Oyo of my favorite former Oakland Athletic.  What's an Oyo?  Well, they're sports mini-figures with rotating forearms, bending knees, and have the ability to hold a bat or glove.

In other words... they're overpriced LEGO figures.  But if you're addicted to sports memorabilia like myself, then they just might appeal to you too.

Happy Thursday and sayonara!

  1. That thing is just begging to be opened up! You should get a second one to crack open if they're cheap enough and you want to keep your original intact!

    1. Lol... maybe if I find one of these on sale again I will. Heck.. there's a toy/card show in a few weeks. Maybe I'll pick one up then.

  2. I've been tempted to get some of the regular Lego mini-figures and I've seen a few of these Oyo figures up on Ebay some for a nice price. I might have to give in to that temptation on a few of them.

    1. It's crazy how much some of those lego figures sell for. I've always wanted to buy some of the Star Wars figures, but there too expensive for my budget.

  3. I have never seen these yet. The search for these is on now.

    1. Their player selection is pretty impressive... unfortunately I don't think they make a Nomo :(

  4. I was going to rag on you for playing with 'toys' but I looked up on the shelf next to my desk and saw six bbleheads and my Dale Earnhardt die cast cars. Ooops

    1. Lol... I love bobbleheads. In fact the Kurt Suzuki SGA is very high on my wantlist.

  5. I was always hoping they'd eventually license MLB Legos when the NBA ones came out... C'est la vie...

    1. I totally forgot about those NBA legos. I had the Jason Kidd and Kobe Bryant figures, but have no idea where they are now :(
