Weekend Coffee Share – Double Decker Couch Edition

If we were having coffee, well, it would depend. If we were having coffee together, in person, there are thing I might tell you. The sort of stuff you tell in person, or on the phone. Because that’s the sort of stuff that’s been going on this week – serious stuff. Not to us, either, so it’s not really ours to share.

So in an effort to stay cheerful, well, I spent a little time wandering the store yesterday with the Geek Baby asleep…

So everyone could drink coffee together and be buddies!

So everyone could drink coffee together and be buddies!

So that happened.

We had been eyeing Legos for a bit. We’ve not really shared images of ourselves related to Comparative Geeks, and the idea was we could use Legos to do so. This would be ripping off the exact same idea from our blogging friend Sheena, at her blog Not A Punk Rocker. She uses Wyldstyle as her Avatar, and Deadpool as, well, Deadpool.

But that also meant no Wyldstyle for Holly… so then… wow, there are a lot of minifigs. Also, not nearly so many of them female. And so while we may not have hit on some final selections, we do at least have some we can play around with now. And better yet, new minifigs have multiple faces if you just spin them around! That will come into play for sure.

And so, here’s what we got!Ā 

Hulkbuster Lego

So Holly got a Hulkbuster. The Hulkbuster itself will likely make its way to her office… but at the helm there is Scarlet Witch, who may have to stay home for social media shenanigans! I guess maybe Iron Man can pilot it at the office…

Benny in a Car

Meanwhile, I got a tiny car. Oh, and I guess the double decker couch… literally, the worst idea ever. Maybe. And for now at least, I think it’s got to be Benny for me.


We had fun building our Lego sets, and will continue having fun with them I think! That Hulkbuster has a crazy amount of moving parts. And it all helped us take our mind off things, if only for a bit.

Alright, Part-Time Monster. You have a Coffee Share. We have a Hulk.

  1. That’s great. Everything about this is great. I’m glad you’ve decided on Lego representations. šŸ™‚

  2. Lego baby can be found at Citizen Brick, but perhaps someone could come up with one for you šŸ˜‰

    I am waiting on some parts to come in but my wyldstyle will be getting a minimakeover šŸ˜€

    Of course, I love y’all’s selections and idea to do this. I am not sure what happened to my double decker couch set though šŸ˜¦

    • Oh no! Not the couch!

      I made the mistake of walking (repeatedly) up to the Lego Dimensions section. So many good sets! I could easily, by the end of it all, spend the cost of a new console just on that game. Yeesh. But I’ll bet it’s awesome… In the mean time, actual Lego sets!


  3. Fav line “so Holly got a hulkster.” It could be my tagline as well as your Holly. šŸ˜‰ plus, he has 2 cuups of coffee.
    love all of the legos.

  4. šŸ™‚ Nice.

    We enjoy the Lego minifigs—Little Jedi has quite a few of them, and he especially enjoys the blindbags and such. We always end up with a lot of hybrid figures by the time he’s done with them, but that’s part of the fun of it. šŸ™‚

  5. I had to laugh when I read about the Legos. I just last night decided that I am going to get a grandma Lego character so I can use as an icon. We have a store nearby where they sell used Lego sets and they have these great bulk takes where you can pick through and get the pieces you want. They also have a bulk bin where you can build your own Lego people. So I’m getting the gray hair for my Lego lady and a cane or walking stick for her to carry. I’ll post a picture when I get down there and put her together.

    • Oh that’s awesome! That’s totally the way to do it. We’re looking at cool stuff where we realized it’s like a $30-$50 set to get the figure we wanted… Or buying it online and then having no accessories!

      My favorite accessory? The coffee mug! Make sure to look for one of those šŸ˜‰


  6. Cool! That’ll be great and shake things up a bit… though I’m sorry to hear about the serious news that’s been going on. There’s this awesome Lego store in Tokyo where you can build your own figure for $2… At the time, I only had $2 to spare, but now I wish I’d made more!
