LEGO Minecraft The Ice Spikes review! 21131

Keepin' it rolling through the weekend here that's rather busy with non-YouTube related stuff as well.

All upcoming & recent LEGO products on display at the New York Toy Fair

ToyArk has been for years one of the best places to quickly see photos of toys & collectibles on display at major conventions in the US, and this hasn't changed a bit for NYTF 2017.  I sometimes get asked to make linear videos, of pictures, of new sets, but I just can't bring myself to use such an awkward restrictive format.  Image galleries like these from ToyArk let you, the viewer, select exactly what you want to see and for how long, at the highest available resolution.  Check them out!

LEGO Minecraft Nether Railway review! 21130

Delightful little set with surprising reconfigurability, a brilliant mob design, and an unusual brand new part mold.

LEGO NEXO Knights year 1 layout clear-out

It's time to move out the old to make room for the new.  I also look forward to reclaiming a lot of space on my "sets reviewed & sets to review" shelves. Much needed.

First Mega released Kubros, now LEGO has BrickHeadz on the market as an answer to the popularity of Funko Pop! super-deformed figurines.  Let's see how they did...

LEGO NEXO Knights King's Guard Artillery review - 70347

Just one more tiny polybag to go (that doesn't seem to be in North America yet) and this full wave of NEXO Knights sets will be complete.

Mega Construx Halo Summer set & figure previews

In looking for pictures of the just-announced summer Mega Construx Halo sets (in an exclusive first-to-press article that includes no Mega photos!) I found a preliminary listings for a bunch of the upcoming good stuff with official images.

It's vintage meets modern in one very advanced, yet easy-to build set.  Top design work here.

LEGO Minecraft Jungle Temple review! 21132

Out of all of the new Minecraft sets in this release wave, the Jungle Temple was the one I was most looking forward to on account of its appearance.  It could be a simple case of "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," though.
