My review of 79002 Attack of the Wargs will be the last from me before Christmas — as I am banned from the LEGO aisle and any LEGO stores online for the next several weeks, ha! The Build Process The set starts out a bit slow as you build a slanted rock for Yazneg to Continue reading →

The LEGO Hobbit sets just started shipping officially today, but I have a couple more sets I picked up early locally, so to help you decide which to get right away, I’ll be posting some more reviews today, starting with 79000 Riddles for the Ring. The Build Process At just 105 and $9.99, this is Continue reading →
No Starch Press recently sent us a review copy of their latest Technic offering, The Unofficial LEGO Technic Builder’s Guide by Paweł “Sariel” Kmieć. I found the book to be full of very useful information. I am not an expert Technic builder by any means and when I first thumbed through the book I was Continue reading →
Speaking of the inimitable Mr. Iain Heath of The Living Brick, it’s been nearly six years since his Miniland Stephen Hawking began taking the Internet by storm. Iain’s latest experiment in cloning little plastic cosmologists has been successful, and you can own your own LEGO Stephen Hawking with The Standard Model. Iain surprised me with Continue reading →
Reviewing fever seems to be in season as the 2013 sets dawn upon us. Brickset and Eurobricks recently posted detailed reviews of the upcoming 10233 Horizon Express to be released in January. Review on Brickset: Review on Eurobricks:
I suggested yesterday that 79003 An Unexpected Gathering might be the best LEGO set of all time. I wasn’t kidding (it’s definitely my new favorite), but I don’t think all of the sets in the new Hobbit line are the stuff of legend. 79001 Escape from Mirkwood Spiders isn’t the worst set of all time, Continue reading →
LEGO sets for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey aren’t officially due out for another several weeks, but a local retail chain here in the Pacific Northwest has been putting the new sets on their shelves over this past week or so. I picked up 79003 An Unexpected Gathering (Bag End) today, and I can honestly Continue reading →
Not so long ago we previewed the LEGO Adventure Book by Megan Rothrock (megzter). Today we bring you a review. The tl;dr version can be summed up simply: buy this book (or from Amazon.co.uk). For reasons why scroll below the picture. EDIT: I should mention that I received my review copy of this book from Continue reading →
Brickset posted a review of the upcoming 79010 The Goblin King Battle to be released in January 2013. Take a look at Huw’s excellent photos and decide whether Lego has done it again in taking your money!
The 10227 B-wing Starfighter comes out on October 1st. Here’s the first review of the set posted on FBTB by Ace.
Max Yang (ArtiFex Creation) has been keeping up his animated reviews of many of the recent sets. Unlike traditional reviews, Max shows you the brick-by-brick construction process of each set, leaving you with the experience of almost having built the set yourself.
I recently took advantage of the free shipping going on right now to pick up 21101 Hayabusa, the second project to receive the necessary votes and become an official LEGO set through the original Japanese version of LEGO CUUSOO. Given the space fever I currently share with many of you, I thought I’d let you Continue reading →
In the USA, at least, Series 8 of the insanely popular Collectible Minifigs is trickling out. A few days ago, I picked up a full set (minus one, due to an improper baggy identification on my part) and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I wasn’t nearly as excited for this line as I had been for Continue reading →
I’m familiar with the custom brick lights by Max Yang (Artifex Creations), but I’m just now aware that he also produces some excellent videos showing brick-by-brick constructions of the newest Lego sets. In my opinion they are more interesting to watch than speed-up builds, which don’t show the techniques or parts used in the sets. Continue reading →
Here’s a video review of the newly released 21102 Minecraft set, the first CUUSOO product to be released outside of Japan. You can get it starting today for $34.99 on Lego Shop at Home. Summary: the Minecraft set is a decent buy for a collection of small plates and tiles. It is more geared for Continue reading →
