Welcome to the year of the LEGO minifig mech! It's a shame they needed to make a new specialized part for it, but I know a lot of folks are going to enjoy the new possibilities.
I finally got to it, probably one of the more well-received & desirable Creator sets for the year, save the minifig-scaled ones.
I have not yet gotten used to the name change from Mega Bloks to Mega Construx (not at all), but I'm liking the branding and the quality & design of the newest products so far. This 4-pack of figures is at a Halo Heroes series level of production and puts the most official named figures into one package yet, without forcing us to buy big & expensive vehicles or pay aftermarket prices for some convention exclusives.

Alright, this? This is good. I think it's going to appeal to a lot of different people for a lot of different reasons, and the good news is that the build is even better than it looks.
Here's one of the new LEGO Creator modular sets. Yep, I wrote that correctly. This mini-scale vehicle set is modular. It's an eyebrow-raising proposition, but I ended up furling my brow quite a bit at the execution of the concept.
LEGO made a red/white/black multi-build set anchored by a helicopter years ago called "Air Blazers," and this one clearly pays some homage, while being at a very different scale and producing distinctly different results.
It begins... again! Another new series to collect, featuring some new molds as well as recolors, this time all revolving around a chromatic theme.

I put up only a couple of in-progress pics of this on Instagram because my building sessions were intense, really focused with constant rebuilds & adjustments and no breaks. As always, space is extremely limited and every square stud worth of space had to really justify its existence. I'm definitely happier with the end result than I expected to be, with only a few small items I'd like to change if LEGO eventually makes the parts in the colors I need.
