New JANG City update Mar. 28, 2015 - Slow progress


LEGO has been of lower priority than all the rest of important things in life this past few weeks, but here's a brief look at what's been going on in the city, along with some reminders about what's coming up.
Also don't forget about the list at the bottom of my old queue, which remains valid on the new layout!  Pretty much all the stuff I've talked about building for the past couple of years, is still in the plan :)

LEGO Juniors Race Car Rally review! set 10673


This set has actually been out since last year, but I'm glad I finally decided to pick it up.  It embodies quite a lot of what makes (or made) LEGO great.

LEGO "Pencil Pot" house review! set 40154


This set had me repeatedly raising eyebrows, doing double-takes, and thinking, "Huh?"  For the most part, it's a basic house build, but it's primarily intended to be a desk accessory for holding writing implements & such.  Usually prices for these specialty builds are really expensive, but this one actually comes in waaaay under the average $0.10 USD per part line.

LEGO Fire Fighter boat from 1977! set 775 or 316


Well it only took me a lifetime, but I finally got my hands on this classic fire boat!

LEGO Juniors Beach Trip review! set 10677


Running out of currently-available sets to review, I'm digging into the full line of Juniors sets I picked up last month.  Surprisingly, I'm already finding things that are not only great for the youngest fans, but that I, personally, am really glad to get for my own collection & builds.
