LEGO Star Wars UCS Assault on Hoth review! 75098

Here it is, this year's big Ultimate Collectors Series LEGO Star Wars set.  Much of the Internet has deemed this a travesty, a shameful excuse for a set, a money-grab, positively devoid of any value to anyone.  While I can't say I agree with the severity of these sentiments, I do understand some of their roots.  In my review, though, I simply show and evaluate the product for what it is, a large playset with 17 figures (counting droids & bigfigs) with a reasonably average price/part ratio.

I'll address the out-of-control community hatred in a separate commentary.

LEGO Super Heroes Capt. America's Motorcycle polybag! 30447

LEGO continues to do nice things with polybags, and whether you get them as "free with purchase" bonuses or pick them up at retail, you tend to end up with something you can really be happy with, even though it's small.

LEGO Iron Man Gamestop exclusive Silver Centurion polybag

I almost missed out on this one, but thankfully a fellow gamer (who isn't a LEGO fan) had my back and hooked me up with this Gamestop preorder exclusive freebie.

LEGO Architecture Berlin cityscape review! 21027

Here's another of LEGO's new skyline/cityscape sub-theme of Architecture.  I really think these make great space-conscious display pieces.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Rogue Shadow from 2008

Yep, I definitely now wish I had gotten this sooner :)  It's strange that I didn't, considering how much I loved the game.  The second game was very enjoyable too, but the story was more of a stretch and it had some framerate issues.  Luckily LEGO never has to worry about stuff like that.

First LEGO Train Station MOC progress video

I definitely need to start on my first skyscraper soon, but this is a project that's been waiting to be finished for far too long, and it's going to tie in some elements on both sides of my downtown area.  Plus, I got a spark of natural motivation to work on the thing, so there's no better time than now to push forward and make it whole.

LEGO Elves Emily Jones & the Baby Wind Dragon review! 41171

This is the last of the newest Elves sets for now.  There's another release wave coming pertaining to this particular dragon-focused story arc, and that one will include the big dragon.  This set has one of the very, very little dragons.

Mega Bloks Kubros buildable Terminator Genisys T-800 review!

Kubros up!  So technically this is a Genisys set, but if you prefer the classics you can easily place this in the T2 timeline.  Funny-lookin' lil desk model.
