LEGO Dreamzzz 71453 Izzie and Bunchu the Bunny and 71454 Mateo and Z-Blob the Robot [Review]

So far we’ve looked at some sets from the larger end of the Dreamzzz line, but the eleven set range has a wide range of price points. The less expensive sets feature some of the same fantastic minifigures and imaginative builds, so let’s take a closer look at two of them: 71453 Izzie and Bunchu the Bunny and 71454 Mateo and Z-Blob the Robot. These mech-like sets each come with a hero, a large companion, and some sort of nightmare villain. 714543 Izzie and Bunchu the Bunny comes with 259 pieces, 1 minifigure, and 1 Grimspawn, and can be preordered now for US $19.99 | CAN $24.99 | UK £18.99; 71454 Mateo and Z-Blob the Robot has 237 pieces and 2 minifigures and can be preordered for US $19.99 | CAN $24.99 | UK £18.99. Both sets will be widely available on August 1st.

Lifesize LEGO Riedell R3 roller skates

These awesome brick-built roller skates by Julie VanderMeulen look sturdy enough to take a spin around the local roller rink. Seriously, at first glance I thought I was looking at two pairs of real skates! The lifelike toe stops, shoelaces (with aglets!), axles, and the accurately-sized wheels really sell this build. The stylish black and yellow color blocking and the R3 lettering on the heel isn’t bad either.
