I'm taking one for the team this week, or am I? The much criticized Trolls: World Tour theme hasn't been treated too well by the LEGO community, but with it's bright colors and plethera of new elements I was actually quite excited to get my hands on a set.
I'm going back to my youth for the next set. Friends was the biggest thing when I was around 12 and I have memories of laughing so hard I stopped breathing. When this set was announced I knew it would be one I'd get, not really for me (the nostaglia isn't THAT strong) but my wife is an absolute Friends-fanatic. It wouldn't be hard convincing her on letting me buy this set.
Welcome to Jurassic Park...T.rex Rampage review. Ray Arnold said it best "Hold on to your butts". Upon release, this set was surrounded in a fog of controversy, but still managed to impress. I have high hopes for this set, it sure doesn't look like a six-foot turkey.
Make some space behind your sofa cause LEGO's going supernatural! There's something bad in the neighborhood. Who ya gonna call? JACK AND PARKER!!! Hidden Side arrived on the scene last summer offering a new way to play. I wanna bust some ghosts (but in a way that is not associated with another popular Ghostbusting franchise) so let's get started.
LEGO Technic has been the most consistent theme in LEGO, producing sets for over 40 years. The Car Transporter is one of the bigger ones for the year, and posed me a question I have been ignoring since coming back to LEGO as an adult, "do I like building Technic sets?" Some of my fondest childhood memories of LEGO are Technic sets, I loved them. But after my 'dark ages' I never found the love for them again (probably something to do with the more complex looking studless models). I have avoided taking on reviews for Technic sets as I never felt qualified to give an opinion (leaving Tobymac to do all the Technic heavy lifting). But I can't put it off forever. So here's a review of the first major Technic set I have built in over 20 years.
A good review, this may be. To find out, read you must. An impressive 16" height and posable head, set 75255-1 Yoda boasts...Okay, I'll stop that now, I promise. A spiritual remake of a 2002 set from the always popular Star Wars theme, this set is surely a crowd pleaser, right?
