LEGO NEWS – OFFICIAL LOOK AT THE 2018 LEGO MINECRAFT SETS

Well it seems there is still life in the Minecraft license with LEGO just officially releasing images of 2018’s lineup (thanks to The Brick Fan).

LEGO TECHNIC MACK ANTHEM 42078 OFFICIAL IMAGES

As you all already know LEGO Technic is not a favorite of mine, but of course I can appreciate it for its more mechanical construction and skill/design behind the models. However every now and then a LEGO Technic set comes along that I just can’t resist. Cue the newly announced LEGO Technic Mack Anthem 42078 set that just seems to highlight all that’s best in Technic. Based on a Mack Anthem truck with lifting and lowering mechanism for the transportable…

LEGO TAJ MAHAL MAKING A SURPRISE COMEBACK

LEGO TAJ MAHAL MAKING A SURPRISE COMEBACK

LEGO blindsided everyone with a big surprise announcement that LEGO CREATOR Taj Mahal will be re-released on the 27th November (Cyber Monday). The set will retail at AUD $499.99 / USD $369.99 / GBP £299.99. Note – prices are based on the LEGO online shop. The set is identical to the previous set, but includes 1 extra element which I suspect is the brick separator tool. It’s been discussed extensively but I think the sudden surprise re-release of this set confirms LEGO’s desire to…

LEGO NEWS – OFFICIAL LOOK AT 2018 NEW YEAR LEGO TECHNIC SETS

LEGO Technic is personally a funny one for me, I did review LEGO Technic Ocean Explorer (42064) and enjoyed it, but It’s a theme that just doesn’t resonate with me. The newest wave to hit the shelves in the new year look ok and in keeping with my nautical background I do like the Racing yacht. The rest of the lineup I’m sure will appeal to Technic fans. In summary we will be getting 5 new Technic sets for early…
