Some sets I only buy because of certain pieces. Like this one. It contains two so-called “Vermillion Warriors” (hence the name of the set) and some really cool pieces of armour. The rest? Never mind really. I didn’t even bother to keep this set assembled for taking photos. The two Vermillion Warrior Minifigures are really… Read More Not Quite a Review: The Vermillion Attack (70621)
Now this is one of the more unusual Sky Pirate sets, without a weird steampunk/dieselpunk flying machine for the baddies dominating the scene. Here, the good guys have definitely the advantage. With a glorious, flashy (pun of course intended) lightning dragon! And its really an impressive beast.

Shortly after, the Queen’s Right Hand proudly demonstrated his progress in taming the wild beast: Luckily for its tamer, the dragon didn’t… Read More Dragon Taming
While Cole’s Dragon is a very decent little set, it never felt right to me that the dragon is unable close its jaws. For me this is such an obvious action-feature that I am really surprised it is missing. To make matters worse, it has almost everywhere ball-joints except for the place where its head is attached to… Read More How to fix a Dragon
…and its something so simple. I discovered this years ago when I got the Dragon Wizard. Just a wonderful little detail to discover, isn’t it? I remembered the writing on the scroll when I did the shooting of the Dragon Queen’s throne-room. It doesn’t only shows the impressive quality of the printing back in… Read More One of the nicest things Lego ever did…
