LEGO Exo-Force Stealth Hunter from 2006! set 7700


My journey into the not-so-distant past world of Exo Force continues with this elegant white knight of a mech.

LEGO Star Wars Republic Fighter Tank from 2008! set 7679


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

Vintage LEGO King's Castle from 1984! set 6080


And here it is!  The big daddy/momma of the 80s, the grandest castle of them all for well over a decade of LEGO medieval-themed sets!

LEGO Simpsons KWIK-E-MART review! set 71016


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.

Vintage LEGO Knight's Castle from 1984! set 6073


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 Call of Duty Ghosts - Covert Ops Unit review


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 ;)

LEGO Bionicle Chibi Protectors of Stone & Jungle


Oops!  I publicized these on YouTube before here.  I'll make up for it by posting the full team wrap-up video here first (soon) for you kind & dedicated blog followers.

LEGO Elves - Azari's Magic Fire polybag review! set 30259


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.

LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 mild MOD


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 Big Bling Wheelie truck from 2005! set 8658


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.

LEGO Technic Front End Loader from 1992! 2-in-1 set 8828


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.
