Mega Construx Halo Heroes Series 4 Dare, Wetwork, Arestor & summary


Alright!  I picked up the Argus Spartan about two weeks ago, Dare shortly after that, and most recently the Wetwork Spartan started rapidly flickering in & out of stock at Amazon and flipping between retail & scalper prices.  Fortunately I happened to browse through one of the times it was in stock at a reasonable price, letting me finally finish the collection!

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: Silent Mary review - 71042


I think official pictures of this ship did it serious injustice.  Stand the main mast upright and it's actually quite a nice display piece if you appreciate the art and intrigue of tattered & decayed old things.  I say that with no sarcasm or cynicism, believe it or not!

LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 Ravager Attack review - 76079


This week I reviewed the last of the whopping three (3!) Marvel GoTG2 sets released for the new movie.  It feels like a small amount of product for such a big, expensive film, but I have a feeling LEGO did their homework based upon sales from the first round and made a conservative choice that's smart & responsible.

LEGO Technic 2017 Telehandler review! 42061


Some of the most interesting Technic sets of the Winter-ish 2016-2017 season were only released in Europe & Asia so far, even after two major waves of product drops.  However, this telescopic handler is a real performer with all of the desired working functions in a modest-sized package.

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Blue Express review! 31054


Yes!  Finally I've finished up another full LEGO theme from the early 2017 release season.  I certainly did not save the best for last, though.

Airfix Quick Build F-22 Raptor model review


These things will never stop being deceptive at first (and second) glance, as technically, they're almost 100% LEGO-compatible.

LEGO City Police Helicopter polybag review


This is LEGO's March 2017 "qualifying purchases" promotional item in North America, and I think it's quite nice as a freebie.

LEGO Batman Minifigure Plush toy review!


Does this set a new mark for the most unusual review on the 'Bricks channel?

Mega Construx Halo Swords of Sanghelios Combat Lance review


I've yet to see this set near me, but while I was on the road very recently I stopped in a Walmart store over an hour away (by freeway, when there's no traffic) and they had two of these!  Plus, it showed up for sale on Amazon for a brief moment before it re-engaged active camo.
