Here's another representative from LEGO's favorite theme for introducing new parts & part/color combinations!

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!

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!
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.

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

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.
