Baby Raptor Playpen Review! (LEGO Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom)

I love dinosaurs. Many should know that by the amount of Dino related content I have posted. This is probably the best polybag in recent memory for me. Why? It has a dinosaur. A adorable little dinosaur. Alright. I'm excited about dinos, again. Well, here we go! This set retails currently for around three to four dollars. I'm not to sure; Brickset still has this set listed as a promotional item.

LEGO Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase

I love Jurassic Park. I have watched the movie several times, I have read the books, I display the Jurassic World set I own on my shelf. But I felt that the first wave of Jurassic sets was missing a few things. Namely Jurassic Park themed sets. But now, they have finally done it. We have a Jurassic Park LEGO set y'all. I may be a little excited. Just a little bit. So, this set is currently retailing for around forty dollars in the United States. It has 360 pieces, four Minifigs, and a Raptor.

LEGO Creator Mythical Creatures Review

Hey all!

Dragons are pretty cool, am I right? I freaking love dragons. I am surprised that it took me so long to actually get my hands on a LEGO one. I have always had the chance to get a LEGO Dragon; Ninjago provided that opportunity quite frequently. I just decided to get other sets, namely Star Wars. After all of that, I am here with another review.

The LEGO Movie 2 Sets Revealed!

The hype is real folks. SDCC has gotten us some images of the LEGO Movie 2 sets. We don't have names for any of them, but they look amazing. I'm really excited, and I hope that the sequel will be as good as the first LEGO Movie.

The new Unikitty looks amazing. The spikes look fantastic. I love the massive new face print that they have. This is a really cool looking cat. The Duplo bricks built out of normal bricks are really funny. The Minifigures look great. Emmett just looks a bit scuffed up, but is otherwise the same. Wyldestyle looks great. I love the new goggles on her hair piece. I hope this one is around $20 or $30, because I would love to pick it up.

An Obituary for LEGO Dimensions (Opinion)

Friends, Brickfans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Dimensions, not to praise it…
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Dimensions. The noble fans,
Hath told you Dimensions was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Dimensions answer’d it.

-- From Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (But slightly modified.)

It has been a while since I have discussed LEGO Dimensions. The game is long dead, and the last waves of sets still warm the shelves. I still have several sets left to review, but I will probably never get around to it. I just booted up the game to play it for a while, and all I have left are the menial tasks of collecting minikits and gold bricks. I didn’t find it too interesting. I honestly would rather play other games I own, like Minecraft, Pokemon or Final Fantasy. It’s sad; LEGO Dimensions was really hyped up. You could bring your real life figures into a video game, what could be cooler than that?

A couple of LEGO Bionicle Mocs

Hey all! I had a recent spurt of creativity that resulted in one of these mocs. The other one has been in a bin or on a shelf since around January.  I dunno why I am so bad at actually getting things like this posted around the same time they are relevant; this is probably why I have dialed back the news content on my site.

I am proud of this first moc mostly because of the torso. I finally managed to integrate an older Bionicle head with a newer torso. And I created a torso that doesn't totally rely on the large prefabricated pieces.  Instead, I have feet and a bit of Technic stuff in there. I also used the same foot mold for the shoulders, and I think this turned out okay. The weapon is kinda inspired by a Klingon Bat'leth. I also stole the cape piece from my little brother; it was a spare in the recent Boba Fett Constraction figure.

This next figure shows how much Final Fantasy XIII I have been playing. He has one massive hand, similar to many characters in the game. He also has these massive, uh, things sticking out of his body, which can contract and form a sort of protective armor. I have a habit of making creepy figures like this. This is actually a variation on an original moc of mine that was much more demented than this one. I do find it interesting how creepy the Bionicle Stars Hau mask can be.

Well, that's all I have. Thanks for reading!

LEGO Voltron Revealed!

LEGO has finally revealed the LEGO Ideas Voltron set. I will say that this is amazing set. I love the designs of this set. The lions are perfect. I am kinda upset that there aren't  any minifigures included. The box art is fantastic as well. It is very reminiscent of the '80s. The lions are really accurate as well. The sword doesn't look right, but I guess that is a fault of the LEGO System. This set is perfect; it is well designed. The price of $179.99 seems a bit high, but it looks worth it. I do hope they will release one for the Legendary Defender show, but I won't get my hopes up.

Here is the official LEGO Press release from LEGO Ideas:

We know you've been waiting patiently for the lions to form and today we're delighted to reveal the very first images of LEGO® Ideas 21311 Voltron. Originally submitted by the Philipino LEGO Ideas member Lendy Tayag a.k.a.len_d69 back in April 2016, it's since been under transformation, in the capable hands of LEGO Designer Niek Duco van Slagmaat, who has ensured it lives up to the LEGO build quality and experience.

LEGO Voltron will be available from and LEGO stores around the world from the 1st of August, 2018 for a recommended retail price of USD/EURO* 179.99 / GBP 159.99.
