Building our Pokemon Mega Construx Collection

Despite our love of video games, sometimes you just need a break from staring at the screen. About a year ago, Rachel and I discovered Pokemon Mega Construx at our local GameStop and we’ve enjoyed building them whenever we each have a couple of hours to kill. Gyarados had been our first masterpiece, and we’ve built a few more since then.

Last night, we started building Blastoise and Charizard, two Construx kits that Rachel had gotten for her birthday earlier this month.

Blastoise had almost 100 pieces more than Charizard, so Rachel was also going to build Wartortle — which we’ve had for a few months at this point — when Charizard was finished, but we didn’t have the time to break open the Wartortle box (don’t worry, Wartortle, we will build you one day!).

We both really enjoy these puzzles and Lego-like building kits, so with Twitch’s Pokemon anime marathon playing in the background, we got to work. Initially, I think we started building like a race, but that didn’t last too long, especially since I needed Rachel’s help in finding certain pieces among my pile of blocks and Rachel needed my help in snapping some pieces together.

With the Construx, the pieces all come in several bags, and Rachel was smart to keep the pieces all in piles according to the bags. I just dumped them all out together, because that’s how organized I am. Luckily our cat Chase didn’t appear to try to “help,” since he tends to pounce on the puzzle pieces.

We’re definitely looking forward to growing our collection!
