Custom display case for LEGO Minifigures by Minifigures Display [Review]

There are many different ways to go about displaying one’s LEGO minifigure collection, and there are many of us who simply don’t bother to go about it–instead stuffing our minifigures in containers and drawers, waiting for the day we will finally have a satisfactory means to display them. LEGO has officially licensed some small display cases, but today we’re taking a look at a huge 112-minifigure display case specifically made for LEGO minifigures that Spanish company Minifigures Display sent us. This large case sells for 74€, or about $84 USD.

Double VIP points Dec 7-10 at the LEGO Store – Black Card promo finally revealed [News]

When LEGO released 75192 Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon last year, the company made a big deal of the various promotions and special offers that LEGO VIP Program members who purchased the UCS Falcon would be receiving over the subsequent year, starting with a special new VIP “Black Card”. The reality has turned out to be considerably less awesome, with the Black Cards arriving several months after purchasing the Falcon and no unique promotions at all in the past 15 months since the Falcon’s release. But there’s finally some good news for Black Card holders, who will be receiving an email with a special code that adds a free Black Card display stand with a unique minifig when you purchase any LEGO Star Wars set.

In LEGO Shop news for everyone, the LEGO Shop is offering double VIP points on all purchases this weekend, today (Friday December 7th) through Monday, December 10th, just in time for last-minute holiday shopping.

LEGO Creator Expert 10264 Corner Garage [Review]

With the release of 10260 Downtown Diner in January 2018, the design aesthetic of LEGO’s Creator Expert modular buildings series shifted from pre-war architecture to the chrome and neon of the 1950s. This trend continues with the 2019 modular building, 10264 Corner Garage. The set includes 2,569 pieces and retails for $200 in the US ($269.99 in Canada and £159.99 in the UK).

Like the recent LEGO Star Wars set 75251 Darth Vader’s Castle, the initial reaction from LEGO fans and collectors has been mixed. But how does the set hold up when we look beyond the box photos and actually start building?

LEGO Star Wars 75251 Darth Vader’s Castle [Review]

The LEGO Star Wars sets from Rogue One, released in late 2016 and early 2017 to support the movie, include several of my favorite LEGO Star Wars sets of the past few years, like the fantastic 75172 Y-wing Starfighter and 75155 Rebel U-wing Starfighter. I’ve hoped that LEGO would return to world of Rogue One, and with the recently released 75251 Darth Vader’s Castle LEGO returns to the first Star Wars Anthology film.

The set has had mixed reactions from LEGO builders and collectors since it was first announced several weeks ago, but how does it actually stack up?

How does the new edition of The LEGO Book by Daniel Lipkowitz stack up? [Review]

While there are many coffee-table style books out there that cover specific topics around LEGO, Daniel Lipkowitz’s New Edition of The LEGO Book covers the widest spectrum of LEGO themes, sets and more. This is the second major release of The LEGO Book, having been first released in 2009 (and lightly updated in 2012). While there is some content that mirrors the earlier release, it does come with sufficient updates of imagery, photos, and text to deservingly call it a completely new edition.

LEGO’s latest free gift with purchase is 40293 Christmas Carousel [Review]

Nearly every month, LEGO gives away a small set with purchases over a certain amount. We don’t always review these little bonuses, but sometimes they catch our eye with a standout model, such as last month’s excellent 40289 Diagon Alley or June’s 40291 Creative Personalities. For the first 10 days of December, the gift-with-purchase set is 40293 Christmas Carousel, featuring 251 pieces and valued at $15 USD. The set is available both in stores and online with purchases over $99 in the US and Canada, or £85 in the UK. The lovely design and moving parts made us decide to take a closer look, so let’s see what’s in store.
