This is the big baddie of the small Mega Bloks Terminator line, featured not for long on film, but involved in a very pivotal (seeming) event.
It's the official Mega Bloks Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator micro action figure at last! Oh, and there's a time machine in the set, too.

Let's call this bonus footage. It's more straightforward gameplay from the initial Pirate World of LEGO Minifigures Online, but I've edited it down significantly to focus on primarily the highlights & special encounters along the way, culminating in a big boss battle against the evil one-eyed Crikey the exceedingly purple Kraken monster.

Updates are posted when there are updates. The next update to the city/hospital/anything will be posted the next time the city/hospital/anything is updated enough to warrant an update video ;D
Update: Thank you all for your overwhelming support, making this my most popular video over an initial 24-hour period, ever! Wow!
I promise this'll be the last comparison video for today :) Here I share my promised side-by-side look at four generations of the same craft in official LEGO form, set numbers 7151, 7663, 7961, and the latest 75096.

Yep believe it or not, I saved the figures from the atrocious Best-Lock Terminator set I reviewed in 2014. Finally, their destiny has been fulfilled, as they have been put to use!

This set takes me back to my beginning -- my second beginning, that is. Around 1999-2000 I was coming out of my first LEGO dark age and a couple of the first brick-based sets I purchased were from this theme right here.
If you don't know about WWE professional wrestling or think it's just a big, fake joke, you're missing out on a very real industry stalwart and one of the consistently most-watched forms of spectator entertainment in North America (and it's quite popular many other places in the world as well). C3 Toys is the official manufacturer of licensed WWE brick-based construction sets and the figures that go with them. I've shown some of the figures & smaller items before, but here's my first review of one of the core ring builds.

It's Halloween in August! The latest LEGO collectible minifigs line is all about scary monsters... and/or people in costumes of scary monsters. See the full series of 16 in my latest video.
Final Flight of Destiny's Bounty was the biggest LEGO Ninjago set of all time, but only for about 3 1/2 months! Behold the new king, the Temple of Airjitzu + Blacksmith's Shop + Smuggler's Market with over 2000 pieces and a full ninja team contributing to a 12-count of minifigures. It's a thing of beauty.

Alright, I'm coming towards the end of my planned content for one LEGO-based video game, now I'm starting up a new series. LEGO Minifigures Online by Funcom recently went full release after a long, long testing period, and in this video I begin my journey through some of its worlds.
As the name suggests, this is an always-online game. It's available for the PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, & Android, and players from all platforms actually play together with nearly identical experiences, save for input device adjustments.
I feel like I'm beginning to better understand the LEGO Architecture line. When it comes down to it, some of the models aren't exceptionally interesting to me by way of the build or their finished forms. Others excel at one or both. This one here nails the build side of things, and I feel you really need to experience it to understand. The visual impact of the completed model is good, but the complete package is very satisfying to me.
