LEGO NEXO Knights Aaron's X-Bow review 72005


Just from the pictures I expected the main build in this set to have scissoring wing transformation, Technic geared rotors with remote activation, and trigger-launched missiles.  Well, it has none of that.  It's evidently... less than meets the eye.

LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Finn & Capt. Phasma review


Yep I got a couple more of these little things and I'm not particularly proud of it.  I felt like they had limited potential early on, and the situation hasn't particularly improved with time.  They're not bad, I just think they're not particularly great.

Mega Construx Destiny Heavy Pike Patrol review


While this is technically a Destiny 1 set, most of it is D2-relevant and the part that isn't still looks great to me.  The main build, though, is far too good for its own... good.  Color me impressed.

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Outback Adventures review 31075


That right there is a really nice, unique, detailed off-roader build with possibly an equally nice doge.  The other two official builds, though?  NO!

LEGO NEXO Knights Twinfector review 72002


I have no idea what season 5 of the NEXO Knights TV show is going to be like, but the sets sure are shaping up nicely.

LEGO Friends 41325 Heartlake City Playground review


The social media popularity contest that is LEGO Ideas has produced a good number of compelling sets, but to date not a lot of real toys, like for kids.  UK LEGO Friends team to the rescue!  A set contest was run last year, open only to kids 6-12 years old, and the winning entry was used as the starting point to create... this!

LEGO NEXO Knights year 3 Tech Wizard Showdown feat. mech-ception


I felt like NEXO Knights was losing steam in the show and the physical sets alike in season 4, but here it looks like the franchise is poised for a valiant comeback attempt.  This is not just another colorful medium-sized mech.

Another, smaller LEGO Creator 3-in-1


Few people would call this an especially noteworthy set.  However, it costs a mere $10 USD (per build).  No bad, then?

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Modular Skate House review 31081


This set has a couple major points of irony that luckily do not prevent this from being a very successful set.  However, do note the price and consider how much value you feel you would be getting.

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Daredevil Stunt Plane reviewed


It begins! Here's my first review of a LEGO set that has "2018" on the box, thus opening the yearly floodgates of viewer questions about how I got a set that's "not out until next year," adding to the normal seasonal "[I wrongly thought] this wasn't released yet therefore you are obviously a shameful lying fraud who sold your soul to LEGO" nonsense.  I will push through the completely unwarranted trash as I always do!  Viva la "block" button!
