My first Chima-related video since... wait, since the entire series ended, right? Why are there new fire & ice sets now?
I think my video of this set covers it well, but viewers have already let me know that my narrative exposes too overtly how little experience I have in the world of Assassin's Creed. This cart is from Brotherhood, and the thing I call a "bomb" is actually supposed to be the Apple of Eden.
The original/official versions of the truck & jet in this set left me unimpressed, and I wasn't satisfied leaving them alone. I got a second set, my wife built it to kit specs as well, then I did as few tweaks as I could to the new copy to get the assemblies to where I'd be happy to display them in my city.
The funny thing is that a number of folks who didn't like my critical feedback in the original review claimed that I must never have seen a long-nose Peterbilt or any other proper classic American semi rig. Quite the contrary, all I wanted to do was add a big heaping scoop of 'Murica to LEGO's design!
Keep on truckin!

One last (though only second) hoorah for the historic flagship of the Ninjago franchise! This video was published to YouTube a night ago and stunned me by becoming the fastest-viewed video I've ever made, drawing 50,000 plays in its first 24 hours. Seems to me the Ninjago theme is as strong & desirable today as it has ever been!
One more series 5 Mixels tribe, at your service!
A few days ago I decided to spend a few quality minutes adding some terrain to the Nether table in my Minecraft display. With the blocky design it was quick & easy to use the Duplo trick to add volume, and I posted a couple pictures to my Instagram feed. Then I realized, a lot of folks say "everybody knows this," and those folks were probably 1000% wrong. Wanting to make sure as many viewers of my channel knew it as possible, I threw together a video showing how it works.

This is much smaller & less showy than the other new dragon, but the build seems a bit nicer and the value is quite high.
I love it when LEGO makes LEGO products that are LEGO branded :)
P.S.: Yes, I am aware that this is Duplo :) It is made by LEGO. LEGO is for children. Duplo is for even younger children.
