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)
In my review of the Y-Wing recently, I criticised the rather lacklustre gun that came for the Moroff-Minifigure. In Rogue One he wields something that looks like a small laser-minigun. In his Lego incarnation though, it was nothing more than a pistol with a technic-pin attached to it – and that only very loosely fitting… Read More Moroff needs a bigger Gun (seriously!)
While I was redecorating my Lego display (replacing the Star Wars scene I had for over a year with some ocean explorers), I took a closer look at the Dewback from the 2014 Cantina-set. It is really a splendid model which is sadly quite underused. And to be honest: what should the imperials do with such… Read More Sword (or Axe) and Sorcery!
You might remember my review of the Misfortune Keep. And the modifications I did on the little pirate flyer. Well, I promised you a mod of the Ninjago-flyer as well – and here we go! While the original version is a weird and not very successful attempt on a rocket-propelled VTOL, my plan was to go… Read More Fixing the Misfortune Keep Flyer! (Part 2)
You may remember that I’m not too excited by the little flyers that came with the Misfortune Keep. They just feel unfinished and below their potential compared to the glorious main build. I felt right away when assembling them that they need some serious upgrades. Luckily for the sky pirates, I decided to mod their flyer first.… Read More Fixing the Misfortune Keep Flyer! (Part 1)
Since my dragon got a drastic increase in its articulation possibilities, the Dragon Queen took the opportunity to claim it for her and immediately ordered it being trained by her dragon-handling experts. 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
Regular readers of Littleworlds might know that I really like the Ninjago sky pirate-sets. In particular the Misfortune Keep and its smaller cousin, the Raid Zeppelin. And especially latter one really offers itself for some quick modding too: Its a simple enough to casually play with it without letting it turn into an endless building… Read More Leyland Brickston, Explorer, Adventurer and Airship Pilot
Just when they thought they were ready for their first Ghostbusting-adventure, Erin realized that something was wrong when she tried wearing her new proton-pack for the first time: She fell over! It was way too heavy! Luckily Holtzmann immediately started working on a fix. Unluckily for Erin, totally forgetting to help her getting back on… Read More Ghostbusters Proton-Pack Fix
No, I definitely will not write some pseudo-pirate gibberish as introduction to my first post here (or to any other actually). Enough tried already and failed miserably!
So – pirates! Back in 1989, the new pirate theme was the most spectacular Lego line I’ve ever seen. All the cool new hats and printed beards and finally women with lipstick! The most amazing thing of course was the Black Seas Barracuda (6285). It had so many new parts! It was so big, I mean really BIG. And it looked absolutely gorgeous…… Read More Pirates!
