I'm in Wilmington, so not that far from Philly.

Doing a google search, it looks like it's at the Franklin Institute Science Museum util September 6th.

Wow. I haven't been to the Franklyn Museum since I was a kid... Possibly once when I was really drunk and... I... don't remember it... all that well...

Perhaps, the Natural History Museum...?

HA! I've been thrown out of all of the major museums in Philly, New York and London! It all blends! Not Paris... interestingly enough... I guess they are used to shit-faced guests.

I'm kidding, of course. I was never thrown out of a London museum! (I was asked politely to leave...)

Funny, I've been to almost all of the museums in Philly but never seem to get around to the Franklin Institute.

It's more a kids place, Marty, but I dare you to go there and not learn something!

Have you been the Constitutional Museum in Philly? That is something to see! And very new! I have only been there once, and was NOT thrown out. (I wasn't drunk...)

I haven't been to the new Constitution Center, last time I was in that area there was the visitors center where they had some of the exibits they were going to move over to the center when it was done.

I'm guessing they have put more protection around the liberty bell by now, back in the 80s I was able to put my camera on the floor and get a picture inside the bell, you'd probably get tackled trying to do that these days....

Yep. Even got a cool trailer when announced with Homer and Batman going portal hopping, among other things. But instead of posting that trailer, I'll post this:



Yes, a Lego Big Bang Theory set is due out this weekend. Because really, we don't have enough physicist minifigs, do we? On the bright side, if BBT can get a Lego set, there's still hope for a Lego Road Warrior set someday.



Wow. Not the best build there. But it shows I'm not the only idiot who wants this set.

Back to Dimensions though, there's one world on the LD page that hasn't been mentioned yet, that of Midway Games. That basically means a Mortal Kombat set (which I think Lego would frown on), a Gauntlet set, or a set with a certain yellow dot eating man... Or a Revolution X set with a little Steen Tyler minifig. But that last one strongly depends on someone at WB having a brain anuerysm and approving it.

That BBT set makes me sad.

Let's be honest. If you give Leonard, Sheldon and Penny the Chima weaponry, the set instantly becomes much, much cooler. And giving the Chima figs little takeout boxes makes them a bit cooler too. It's a win win!

Apparently, Chima was supposed to be a Thundercats set until the licensing fell through.
