I am not much into the Collectable Minifigures. I like their designs, but never really felt the need in collecting them. Especially not with the random chance of maybe getting just the one out of 22 I want. I am quite selective in this regard really and when I really want one, I simply order it on… Read More Winter Is Coming – The Ice Queen – Review
Like Nexo Knights, Ninjago is one of the current Lego themes, that feature pretty wild designs and an interesting mix of styles. Dragon riding ninjas fighting sky pirates? Sounds like a good idea to me. Especially for under a tenner! I wasn’t quite aware of what long-running series Ninjago actually is. And it seems it… Read More Review: Ninjago – Cole’s Dragon (70599)
The last of my batch of Nexo Knights reviews is about the Ultimate General Magmar set, which has been released this summer. As every Ultimate version of the Nexo Knights characters, the general comes with a pretty impressive backpack-thing (the only exception I am aware of is Lavaria, who got a spider torso instead. So much… Read More Review: Ultimate General Magmar (70338)
Remember me saying that the sets with the good Nexo Knights-guys are usually not that great? Well here is the exception: she is cute, she wears red, likes miniguns and big metal things on a stick to hit you with – here is Macy! I really begin to like the smaller Nexo Knights sets. Once you got over the… Read More Review: Nexo Knights Ultimate Macy (70331)
Review time! I got a load of new sets (for very reasonable money, I have to add) and can’t wait to write about them – so yeah: lets begin! Nexo Knights is pretty much hit or miss for me (the good guys are mostly miss). This one, I found initially appealing, because of the weird… Read More Review – Nexo Knights The Glob Lobber (70318)
Getting settled in my Lego universe, the Ancient One was delighted to hear that there are more styling options for her than going for the full zen-bald-look. After several centuries, she told me, it got a bit old really and she is ready for a change. No problem, I said and sent her a very… Read More Strange Styling!
Disclaimer: I have not much of a clue of the marvel universe in general and the character of Dr. Strange in particular. All I know is that there is a film coming up featuring Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton – and that this is a pretty weird little set! And the weirdness was clearly its… Read More Strange Review: Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060)
The super-laser is installed, the bar has been equipped, party decorations hung up, the PA is ready and all invitations have been sent – the dark side really knows how to party!… Read More Death Star II Housewarming Party!
Ultimate Beast Master (70334), is the second set of the Nexo Knights theme I got and therefore the second to be reviewed too! He is part of the same series as Lavaria and a few other Minifigures too, which are supposed to act as booster packs for the Nexo Knights app, as I figure. Unlike Ultimate Lavaria… Read More Nexo Knights Review Part 2 – Ultimate Beast Master (70334)
I was quite disappointed when The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit theme was cancelled. When Lego also wrapped up the underwhelming Castle theme in 2014, this meant an end of an era. The era of medieval/fantasy themed sets. What followed was cuteness and… weirdness…
