Here's a pretty cool, once-released Star Wars set from my big recent Bricklink haul.

This second LEGO Simpsons building set was released for LEGO VIP members yesterday and will be available to everyone May 1st. This 2,179 piece set took me over 7 hours to build, and I love it. The outside looks appropriate, but the inside is almost overflowing with the finest of details. In my opinion, this is one of the best structure sets LEGO has ever made, in any theme.

With this, work on that massive haul of sets from Bricklink has officially begun! I also picked up the flagship castle of the entire decade and will review it soon. The little original yellow 1978 castle will be sourced at a later date :)
Mega Bloks fans have been getting antsy and asking every day why I haven't been reviewing new MB sets. The answer is consistent: There haven't been any new MB sets! Thankfully there was finally a break in the lull with this delightfully excellent little figure pack.
My next new Mega Bloks set review will be published the next time Mega Bloks releases a new set and I'm able to review it ;)

I'm a little late on this one, but I'm sure there are still a bunch out there, and hopefully they'll be made available in more ways & places.

I absolutely could not stand how the original/official assembly of this thing looked nothing like the real-world car! As I said before, it looked like an Aston Martin coupe, or some other front-engine tourer. I won't be doing this with the other sets in the line, but I couldn't help changing this one a slight bit.
LEGO Racers! I haven't seen one of these since they were last in stores (which was quite some time after they were discontinued). Picked this one up awhile back in a Bricklink haul, figured I'd share it.
Finally, my first older-generation Technic set, complete & reviewed! This was missing the flex cable pieces, but those arrived in the last Bricklink haul to allow me to finish this up and also show the official alternate model.
