Since my last post, Lego has announced some more sets for the coming year – time for part 2 of my 2020 impressions. And just like in part 1 I won’t hold up myself with the (for me) less interesting sets. So straight to the good stuff!
Time to end my summer-break with a review that just wants to be written. Especially if you look at my last post. Lets indulge in some dieselpunk goodness with Destiny’s Wing!
