Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape Review! (LEGO Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom)

I hope you all have survived the holidays. I certainly came through with a couple more LEGO sets. The first one I am getting around to reviewing is the Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape. (But I mean, you knew that, you read the title.) This set retailed originally for $79.99 in the U.S. You can still find this set on shelves, even though it came out much earlier this year. (I know, I never have timely reviews.)

Welcome to Apocalypseburg revealed! (The LEGO Movie 2)

Well, this set has been around already because there were some leaked images, but I waited until we had official images. This set has 3,178 pieces and will retail for $399.99 in the U.S. The set releases on February 1, 2019. I really like this set. I think the Planet of the Apes reference is pretty funny. I love the 12 figures included in the set; my favorites include the new versions of Larry the Barista and the new Where are My Pants Guy.

The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures Series Revealed!

Hello! Hothbricks and Promobricks have revealed images of the new LEGO Movie Collectible Minifigure series. I am personally really excited for this series. I really like all the Wizard of Oz characters in the series. It gives collectors of that franchise a bit more of a complete lineup, seeing as we already got The Wicked Witch and some flying monkeys. I think the watermelon suit guy, crayon suit girl and the giraffe suit guy are a bit too much. I think having only one of them in this series would have been better. Lord Business in his golf attire is great. I really like the new apocalypse cat that comes with Mrs. Scratchen-Post. I find it interesting that we get another Unikitty, even though we just had a full Unikitty CMF series.

3 years of The Brick Dragon!

I would never have thought that I would get to where I am now. I was a teen fan of LEGO holding onto his LEGO passion in a world where teenagers who still use and play with LEGO are looked down upon. I somehow managed to cling onto my hobby for these years of high school. Along with my LEGO hobby, I decided to start a blog for fun, three years ago today. It remained pretty small until now. But in these last couple of months, a ton has happened. The views on the site have skyrocketed, I have surpassed my previous record for page views in a month, which I am proud of. But views don't make the site better. I feel like I have improved drastically in the quality of my content. I looked back at some of my old posts a couple of days ago, and I saw how unrefined the old posts were. I'm not saying  my current content is perfect, it is far from it. But I am glad to see that I am making progress. Another great thing is that I recently got added to a list of the top 75 LEGO blogs and websites. I am currently number 66, but I hope that I may rise up the list. (You can see my fancy medallion on the sidebar.) I would like to give my thanks to all of you who have made this possible my reading my posts, and I  would like to thank my grandparents who spoil me by buying the LEGO I could never afford on my own. I would like to thank my parents, who have supported me in this and many other endeavors.

Thank you all for reading my blog, it means a great deal to me. Have a great new year!
Duncan.

(P.S. I made a public Discord server for the site. This will just be a test; I don't know how long it will last.You can access it here.)

LEGO Muji? (The Brick Archive)

This is a completely unrelated side note. I recently got added to the list of the top 75 LEGO blogs. I'm currently at the bottom, but I hope that in time, that will change. You can check out the list here.  Anyways, back to your regularly scheduled content. 

I know what your probably thinking. Its something along the lines of: "Wait, what?" I'll be honest, that was my reaction too. So, Muji is a Japanese company who teamed up with LEGO in 2009 to create a new type of product, available only in Japan. The theme used normal bricks along with paper cutouts. The papers had stud sized holes cut in them by a specialized hole punch. The paper pieces would then fit in between LEGO Bricks. However some of the sets did come with pre-cut paper.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

I cannot believe that the year is almost up. I hope you all have had a wonderful year, for this has been a pretty good year for me. The last couple of months, this site has been doing incredibly well. The last two months are the best months my site has ever had. We busted through the previous record for page views in one month.  I am excited to be working on new stuff for this upcoming year. It would seem that we are going strong, but you never know. I hope that I will be able to post more regularly next year because Nutcracker season is over.  I have some posts lined up for the next couple of weeks, which I assume will be getting out, but you never know.

Anyways, Happy Holidays!
Duncan.

(This was written before Christmas Day. I am assuming I got LEGO to review.)

Unikitty! Cloud Car Review

Well, I think I have a small Unikitty obsession. My parents know this and took advantage of it when buying me a present after Nutcracker season ended. I was ever grateful, because I really can't afford to buy LEGO for myself. They surprised me with a LEGO Unikitty set. I'm really happy that I got this set; it is such a strange bundle of fun.
