Hey Comics — Kids! S03E02: LEGO AT-AT

Hey Comics Kids podcast logoBe sure to visit our Patreon page! (patreon.com/heycomicskids ) Max got a LEGO AT-AT (that’s All-Terrain Armored Transport, if you’re ever on Jeopardy!) for Christmas, and it’s the largest LEGO set that he’s put together on his own to date. HE’s super-proud, and he shares his enthusiasm with you over all things Star Wars LEGOS in this episiode.

About the Lego AT-AT

  • Includes 5 with assorted weapons and an accessory: AT-AT Driver, General Veers, Snow trooper Commander and 2 Snow troopers
  • Features a moving head with a cockpit for 2 and 2 spring-loaded shooters, possible legs and an opening body with switch-operated trap door
  • Weapons include a blaster pistol and 3 blaster rifles Also includes an electro binoculars element
  • Measures over 12″ high, 12″ long and 4″ wide

I’m gonna be honest with you — this was a real challenge for Max to assemble. He was determined to do this one without my help. And he got himself backed into a corner more than once. But every time he did, he came and got me for help… we backtracked… and re-built from the last place we were sure of. In the end, the pride on his face was well-worth all of the frustration that went into getting there.

Hey Comics — Kids! S03E01 Pokemon 20th anniversary

Hey Comics Kids podcast logoBe sure to visit our Patreon page! (patreon.com/heycomicskids ) It’s the THIRD season of Hey Comics — Kids! Today, Max talks about his favorite topic — Pokemon. It’s the Pokemon 20th anniversary, and they’re celebrating two decades of catching-em-all, and this newly minted 10-year-old couldn’t be happier!

About Pokemon 20th anniversary

So there’s a lot of stuff going on for the Pokemon 20th anniversary that you should be aware of. For starters, every month, GameStop will be giving out free download cards that enable you to get Pokemon that you might not have been able to snag yet. Max tells me that this is a Very Big Deal.

Also, Pokemon is re-releasing its first three games — Pokemon Red, Yellow and Blue — for the 3DS. Those games were available previously only for Gameboy units… or desktop emulators. We’ve already downloaded Red and Yellow. There will be reports forthcoming, rest assured.

And we’re certain that’s not all that’s in store for us this year. It’s amazing to me how excited my ten-year-old can get over a 20-year-old 8-bit side-scroller, but I’m telling you… this thing has him enthralled.

Hey Comics — Kids! S02E39: Super Mario Maker

Hey Comics Kids podcast logoBe sure to visit our Patreon page! (patreon.com/heycomicskids ) Christmas came a little early for Max, too. In his case, the present was Super Mario Maker — which he immediately utilized to make his father’s life a living Hell. That kid absolutely delights in making nigh-impossible Mario levels and then gently enticing me to “give it a try.” You know… the same way Lucy used to convince Charlie Brown that, this time, he really was going to kick that football.

About Super Mario Maker

Super Mario Maker is a side-scrolling platform game creation system and video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U game console, and released worldwide in September 2015.
