This review is about an unusual item, namely one made for storage of LEGO rather than building with it. Sarah Kirk, the owner of Swoop Bag, sent us one to check out some time ago. My apologies to Swoop Bag for the delay in reviewing it. This is actually a rather interesting product. Similar to Continue reading →

Not sure which LEGO sets to pick up for yourself? Need ideas for that LEGO fan who already has more LEGO than he or she can possibly build with in a lifetime? Nervous about the quality of the custom accessories that tempted you at your last LEGO convention? Read our reviews of LEGO sets, books, accessories, and more right here on The Brothers Brick.
After what seems like an eternity, I am finally getting to my review of 79010 The Goblin King Battle. I don’t like picture-heavy reviews so don’t expect any of my own. I will be talking about three aspects of this set: part selection, minifigs and set design. To begin with, the part selection in this Continue reading →
Here is a review of 10197 Arkham Asylum Breakout where I talk about the parts and the model while highlighting some interesting building techniques. In summary, while there are only a few new pieces in this set, it is well-designed and features noteworthy techniques such as the stained glass window, sliding jail doors and more.
When I was buying sets to review, I had wanted to purchase 70501 Warrior Bike, but unfortunately wasn’t able to get it, so I settled instead for 70502 Cole’s Earth Driller, which is similarly sized. Although I still want to get the Warrior Bike eventually, I’m happy I got Cole’s Earth Driller, because it turned Continue reading →
Here is a video review of 79103 Turtle Lair Attack. It was just made available from the Lego store and online. I enjoyed building this set and it has many colorful earth-toned bricks that may be useful. There are also several play features as I will show in the video. It’s a decent set and Continue reading →
Here is a video review of 76004 Spider-Man: Spider-Cycle Chase. It’s not particularly amazing in any aspect but features a cool building technique. The retail price is $19.99 and was available on Amazon before going temporarily out of stock.
Here is a video review of 76000 Arctic Batman vs Mr Freeze. It’s an average parts pack with outstanding minifigures and a decent batboat. The retail price is $19.99 and was available on Amazon before going temporarily out of stock.
Another of the sets I bought last week is the smallest of the 2013 Ninjago sets. This is the last wave of Ninjago sets before Legends of Chima takes its place as the go-to theme for battling minifig games, and I’ll be sad to see it go. Now, I didn’t follow the mythos of Ninjago, Continue reading →
My local toy store is stocking up on the first wave of 2013 sets, so I’ll be reviewing several in the near future as I get time. Today, though, I’ll start with one of the new Star Wars sets, the 75002 AT-RT. With 222 pieces, it’s actually quite a steal with an MSRP of USD Continue reading →
I found Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sets in my local toy store today, which is the first time I’d seen them in person. So, naturally, I picked one up. I just nabbed the smallest one for now, because I must confess that I’ve never really watched TMNT. So this review will be purely from the Continue reading →
LEGO Galaxy Squad was just released, and here’s my review of 3 of the sets from the theme featuring the alien bug race: 70700 Space Swarmer, 70702 Warp Stinger, and 70703 Star Slicer. The video review consists of a look at the parts and a review of the models. For those who just want to Continue reading →
Soon after the LEGO Adventure Book, I found out about The Big Unofficial LEGO Builder’s Book by Oliver Albrecht (*Olly*) and Joe Klang (-derjoe-). I guess it must be Christmas or something as that left me with two LEGO books I wanted. Sensing my desire, Joe Klang sent me a copy of the book which Continue reading →
Both of the companies in this review have been flying under the radar and I am very happy to highlight them here. First up is Brick Fortress. They are a new customs maker and currently only have one item on the market. It is a rather exciting one that fills a significant gap in the Continue reading →
Lego has done a good job keeping pictures of series 9 minifigs from leaking out, so for the first time we see a simultaneous reveal and review. While the minifigs are scheduled for release in January 2013, Lego has sent a case to Eurobricks for an early review. From the review, I noticed that the Continue reading →
The latest LEGO video game from TT Games, LEGO Lord of the Rings, was released on November 13. There’s a reason you’re reading this review nearly three weeks later: Unlike most reviewers who played a handful of levels and declared the game awesome, I wanted to review the game after experiencing it the way most Continue reading →
