LEGO Technic 42005 Monster Truck 2-in-1 review!


This medium-small Technic set is from last year, but is still currently sold in stores.  I have another large batch of new brick-based sets coming in to review, but I snuck this slightly older one in regardless!  One video covers both main official builds.

Mega Bloks Halo CE PAX Exclusive Warthog set 99660 review!


With supposedly a limited run of 5000 units, these 2011 PAX Halo Fest 10-year Halo launch anniversary sets will only be come more & more rare over time.  I finally found myself a factory sealed example for a (relatively) reasonable price to add to my permanent collection.

LEGO Classic System 6669 Diesel Daredevil from 1991!


And now for something... a little different.  How about a four stud wide racing semi truck?!  I dig it!

LEGO classic 6831 Space Police Patrol / Message Decoder


Here's another little classic LEGO Space to keep the vintage love going.  This small surface vehicle is from Space Police 1.

Mega Bloks Halo 97027 UNSC Desert Combat Unit review!


Here's another troop builder/armory set that I needed to improve my collection.  I already had one loose EVA, so I got two of these to complete the CQB & Scout Spartans simultaneously.

Mega Bloks Halo 97028 Covenant Crimson Combat Unit review!


An old one, a small one, but a good one.  The inclusion of the beautifully ornate Honor Guard made this a must-have for serious collectors.

Hero Factory Surge & Rocka Combat Machine build & review!


Here's another LEGO Hero Factory Invasion From Below Wave 2 set!  I've now covered the two big ones and will work on the smaller ones as soon as I can.

Mega Bloks Call of Duty 06866 Motorbike Breakout review!


Ooh, nice new (old) bike build and a named figure!



Mega Bloks Call of Duty 06867 SAM Turret set review!


I love how simple and wholesome this set is.  The turret is built of common Mega Bloks parts, nothing new, with straightforward techniques, and it came out looking... just right.



Mega Bloks Call of Duty 06865 Rappel Fighter set review!


This set has a build & parts balance that's very different from most sets that preceded it.  You get just one, relatively normal mini-figure, but a decent-sized (though simple) structure to pose it with.  Fortunately I think the structure comes with some extremely useful pieces, so it ends up being a good deal for some of us.



Mega Bloks Call of Duty 06851 Juggernaut review!


Do you know who I am?  I'm the Juggernaut! Mixed geek references notwithstanding, this is a CoD mini-figure a lot of folks have looked forward to.

Mega Bloks Halo 97519 Anniversary Collection Battleground review!

This here is a so-called Fall 2014 Toys R Us exclusive Mega Bloks Halo set featuring Tartarus from Halo 2!

I must warn you, though.  If you're one of those folks who only likes "reviews" that say 100% positive things about products & recommend that you buy absolutely everything because everything is amazing & flawless, you will not like this video :)
