  • Two new 2015 sets uncovered

    Two more 2015 sets have been uncovered today: 60070 Water Plane Chase is another City Swamp Police set. It may be a Walmart exclusive in the USA. It has been purchased at Walmart.com and reviewed by The Brick Show on YouTube. But far more interesting than that is 40120, which I've called Marriage Proposal for now. It's obviously going to be released in good time for Valentine's Day. It features a couple having a romantic meal of cupcakes washed down with wine. The man has given the woman the One Ring which is large enough to be a bracelet; probably just as well given she has no…

    Jurassic Bricks (Hoth Bricks subsidy) has found the first official image of the LEGO Jurassic World sets from a LEGO catalog. From what the image shows, there are four dinosaurs represented: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Pteranodon and two different colored Velociraptors. We can also see the Owen (Chris Pratt) and Dr. Henry Wu (B.D. Wong) minifigures as well as two unidentified characters. Also some keen-eyed readers noticed that Wu is holding a piece of amber which is a moonstone piece from the LEGO Monster Fighter line. As for the setting, this could be one of the six new sets that will be released in…

    So I didn't intend to write a blog follow up to The Wal-Mart Side Effect, part 1 just yet, but this is related...Here's something I think is funny... so I'm on eBay this morning, and one of the new features is displaying items similar to what I've searched for in the past... when I see the following mixed in with the results:What I suspect, with LEGO outsourcing many things to China, China is fulfilling the quota of parts, but making a few extra on the side, in the process -- I doubt there's any agreement in place to what the machinery does after the quota is fulfilled -- so…

    The seasonal theme continues as one would hope today with the arrival of a Christmas tree! These are mainstays of City Advent Calendars and the designs are often very similar. In fact, this year's model only differs from last year as it lacks a red mat to go underneath the tree and loses the 2x2 round plates in favour of simple 2x2 plates to go between the layers of branches. In terms of LEGO City building techniques this is probably as good as a Christmas tree can get. Personally I like the SNOT builds like those in 10245 and 10229 but this angular design is still easily recognisable as…

  • Star Wars Advent Calendar Review - Day 21

    21 Dec 2014 | 10:00 am
    I noticed a lack of Rebel ships appropriate for dogfighting with the TIE Fighter a few days ago but today that is at last rectified with the arrival of a Y-Wing mini model! This is a popular vehicle from the Original Trilogy which appeared before in the 2011 Advent Calendar, and no changes have been made for this year. I think there are enough vehicles in the entire Star Wars saga to avoid repeats like this one, but it is a lovely little model so is appealing even if we have seen it before, and that was several years ago anyway. The shape of the ship is captured well although I would rather…

    Christmas is a time of traditions but today's gift is a thoroughly modern item - a loudspeaker and a mobile phone or mp3 player in what I guess is supposed to be a docking station. The rarest part in the model is the 1x2 smartphone tile, which I really like and consider an essential for any modern minifig (speaking as somebody who is pretty much addicted to her smartphone). The speaker is an effective design and the docking station is a neat idea but I am a bit disappointed by today's model.

    Christmas is in the air, colored lights and holiday shoppers everywhere… It just makes me want to jump into a 60 ton tracked vehicle and go defend Poland. Forget nativity scenes; all I want for Christmas is a massive diorama of the North African Campaign. Marin Stipkovic posts this beefy Eastern Bloc design, based on a 1948 prototype; From the same time period but opposite weight class, Intense Potato shares this teensy M3 Stuart; The East comes roaring back with Nick’s slightly futurized T-90; But he runs headlong into Alex Zelov‘s Somers-style Abrams; And finally, a blast…

    Pete Reid has decided to show us the actual process behind the creation of the green classic spacepeople! Okay, not really. When I realized that he had recreated the most common tools and supplies for minifig customization all out of LEGO, I had to laugh. It is really well constructed and very realistic looking. I’m super impressed with the cutting mat and the handles on the knife and paintbrushes.
  • Not just another spaceship

    Carter
    20 Dec 2014 | 7:13 pm
    I love this latest by Alexander Safarik (Malydinar), the inaccurately titled Just Another Spaceship. It’s a densely textured greeblefest, with more guns than your average side scrolling shoot-em-up. I particularly like the wide variety of colors; using bright splashes sparingly on an otherwise grey-and-white ship has a fantastic effect. Alex has been churning out awesome spaceships lately; here are a couple more that we missed. It’s nice seeing some conscious use of studs in a subgenre that’s been inclined toward smooth-hulled ships lately. While some aren’t fans of…

    Captainsmog presents a wonderfully illustrated scene, telling the story of Baba Yaga and her chicken-legged hut. There are many versions of the fairy tale, and like any good story, the details are where the weirdness begins. Is there one Baba Yaga? Three? Why do all of these stories involve cannibalism? I invite you to look long and hard at this wonderfully constructed witch’s hut and check out the wonderful details.

    You have to check out the domed roof on this lovely building by Pete Strege. The curve of the roof is so perfectly smooth, I can’t believe it. So very, very nice. But I also really like the colors of the building and the overall architectural style. It reminds me a lot of Vista House, an observatory that my wife and I used to visit in the Columbia Gorge.

To introduce us to the line, Mezco revealed the first figure, which was a Batman based on Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. The One:12 Collective Figures fall somewhere between the look of traditional 1/6 scale figures and retro Mego style designs. They feature the high level of articulation and cloth outfits you would expect in 1/6 scale figures, but are scaled down to about 6” tall. At this size, it keeps the price low for fans who »…

Here’s a close-up look at the back of the speeder bike. The present, made of a jumper plate and a 1×1 plate, fits into the sack securely and is held in place by the rear-facing gun. Yesterday’s City entry with the policeman goes well with the previous two days’ entries from that theme, so here they are all together with the cop on his snowmobile towing a trailer:

  • LEGO Star Wars 2014 Advent Calendar (75056) – Day 21

    Allen "Tormentalous" Tran
    21 Dec 2014 | 7:20 pm
    Can you believe there are only four days left in the LEGO Star Wars 2014 Advent Calendar (75056)? For Day 21, we get another Original Trilogy build in the Y-Wing. If you remember from way back in 2011, it is the same exact build in the 7958 set meaning nothing new has changed. It seems that LEGO has gone the lazy way for today. Overall, it’s a decent ship but LEGO could have used a different one since there are so many vehicles to choose from in the Star Wars Universe. However, it’s a good one for people who didn’t get a chance to the get the first one from a few years ago.
  • LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Winter Soldier Coming in 2015

    There are two different reports on Brickset and on Eurobricks that a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Winter Soldier minifigure will be available sometime in 2015. There’s no mentioning on how the minifigure will be distributed, whether it be a stand-alone polybag, a gift with purchase, or a Comic Con exclusive. Tragic Banjo on Eurobricks, who has been correct on other rumors before, notes that it could be of the Marvel Cinematic Universe version. Either way, the word is now that we will most likely be seeing Bucky Barnes next year. The post LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Winter Soldier Coming in…

    We’re down to the last weekend for the LEGO Star Wars 2014 Advent Calendar (75056) which means we should be getting some cool stuff now. For Day 20, we have what looks to be an Imperial Shuttle. Although LEGO officially calls it an Imperial Shuttle, the design looks more like the Imperial Landing Craft. Either way it’s a cool little micro model. The wings and the dorsal fin gives the shuttle its iconic look. The back includes a trans-blue grill piece to represent the engines. Overall, it is a nice representation of the vehicle with the amount of pieces used. The post LEGO Star…

From what the image shows, there are four dinosaurs represented: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Pteranodon and two different colored Velociraptors. We can also see the Owen (Chris Pratt) and Dr. Henry Wu (B.D. Wong) minifigures as well as two unidentified characters. Also some keen-eyed readers noticed that Wu is holding a piece of amber which is a moonstone piece from the LEGO Monster Fighter line. As for the setting, this could be one of the six new sets that will be released in…
