REVIEW – LEGO CITY JUNGLE EXPLORATION SITE 60161

REVIEW – LEGO CITY JUNGLE EXPLORATION SITE 60161

LEGO City theme has and is a staple of my family LEGO purchases. If you tread on a piece of LEGO in our house it’s likely it’s from a Police Station, Deli shop or on old grandma’s minifig herself! But it would be a dull life if you were chasing crooks all day long, so LEGO has been releasing City subthemes each year taking the dull city life out into the big wide world from the arctic, deep sea, volcanoes…

REVIEW – LEGO TECHNIC OCEAN EXPLORER 42064

REVIEW – LEGO TECHNIC OCEAN EXPLORER 42064

I have to admit previously I had only ever built one LEGO Technic set in my lifetime and that was back in 1992 (Front End Loader 8828). I was giving the set as a Christmas present at the height of my pre dark ages LEGO obsession. Being polite I thanked my grandparents for the present, but I wasn’t a fan and clearly made this known over the following years as my LEGO collection continued to grew while Technic never made an appearance again….

LEGO Elves is now entering its third year and has released a new wave of sets for 2017.

Eventually combining elemental powers and friends to find her way back home and learn about her grandmother’s past. 2016…

REVIEW – LEGO BRICKHEADZ DC COMICS SERIES 1

REVIEW – LEGO BRICKHEADZ DC COMICS SERIES 1

Back in January I brought you news that LEGO were launching a new theme loosely based on the popular Urban Vinyl Designer Toys heavily dominated by Funko’s Pop! Vinyl (link here). Fast forward to today and I’ve finally got my hands on the new LEGO Brickheadz. The first series is broken down into three license themes – DC Comics, Marvel and Disney each containing 4 Brickheadz. For the first review I’ve kicked off with the DC Comics range. Before I go into…

REVIEW – LEGO ARCHITECTURE LONDON SKYLINE 21034

REVIEW – LEGO ARCHITECTURE LONDON SKYLINE 21034

LEGO Architecture series has always caught my eye, but it has never been able to encourage me to part with my hard earned LEGO dollars. It’s one of those themes that generates a lot of discussion and appreciation of buildings that LEGO so cleverly captures in micro scale. The Skyline subtheme is actually a fairly new addition launched last year with the first wave covering skylines from Venice, Berlin and New York. This latest 2017 wave captures London, Sydney and Chicago….

REVIEW – LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS BATTLE SUIT CLAY 70362

REVIEW – LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS BATTLE SUIT CLAY 70362

Second LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS review in 2017 could/should/am I be becoming a closet fan?! Well not entirely but when you’re on holidays, it’s raining and you’re looking after kids – LEGO shopping tends to scream out especially with kids that are becoming as obsessed as dad with LEGO. One stipulation was a sub $15 (AUD) set, which thankfully LEGO has catered for extremely well with the recent first wave 2017 sets. For this review I’m getting stuck into my son’s choice of…

REVIEW – LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS RUINA’S LOCK & ROLLER 70349

REVIEW – LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS RUINA’S LOCK & ROLLER 70349

Finally I’ve got round to building and reviewing my first LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS set. As previously mentioned I’ve been on the fence with this theme, not quite knowing what to make of it. A part of me wants to love it as it appeals to my love of all things futuristic and neon coloured (rarely seen outside the space theme). But then it’s mashed up with medieval knights which wasn’t a theme I personally collected or played with as a young…

REVIEW – LEGO FRIENDS AMUSEMENT PARK HOT DOG VAN 41129

REVIEW – LEGO FRIENDS AMUSEMENT PARK HOT DOG VAN 41129

Drum roll… first LEGO Friends review! Well actually if i’m truthful it’s not that dramatic, I actually buy quite a lot of LEGO Friends for my daughter and you only have to see our house to see the pink, purple and all shades of pastel influence on the LEGO stockpile. For my first Friends review I decided to jump in with the LEGO Friends Amusement Park Hot Dog Van 41129. In this instance I actually bought this set for myself…

REVIEW – LEGO STAR WARS ADVENT CALENDAR 2016

REVIEW – LEGO STAR WARS ADVENT CALENDAR 2016

It’s that time of the year again when children and adults alike excitedly open the first day of their LEGO Advent Calendars. For me this is the fourth year I’ve joined in the fun, but the first year as a blogger. Puts an interesting twist on the fun with the added pressure to review and document the process. Do I wait to the end and do a blog on Christmas Eve (rather not cooking the christmas ham), daily reviews and spam…

REVIEW – LEGO ELVES RAGANA’S MAGIC SHADOW CASTLE 41180

LEGO Elves – one of those themes that I Love, but the macho part of me stops me buying. Luckily I have two daughters and bingo I have my excuse to buy the theme. I mean look at the transparent and colourful pieces that are on offer surely I’m not the only guy who can’t resist? For this review I’ve jumped straight into the deep end and picked up LEGO Elves Ragana’s Magic Shadow Castle 41180. The set is simply…
