A look through a LEGO Catalog from 1993!


Been awhile since I last did one of these.  Warning:  Long & rambly!

LEGO Bionicle: Old vs. New compared!


Enter: The Controversy!  In this video I dare to pit the new CCBS-based Bionicle series against the original 2001 Toa, as well as representatives from later years, addressing the question, "Which is better?"  To keep things simple, I focus on just the Toa of Air over the years, though I also bring in a few other sets at an applicable point.  If you like what the video visually shows, even if you don't agree with all of my opinions, please share & discuss it with others!

LEGO Ninjago 2015 Boulder Blaster review! set 70747


And now for something... a little different!  Looks weird, but the play feature is impressive.

LEGO layout #2 update! ALL early 2015 City sets together!


Now that you blog viewers have seen all of my new City reviews, it only makes sense that you extra-special fans would see everything together before the rest of the world!  This is my second LEGO city, Mellemby, expanded and now with the whole Demolition sub-theme represented in the center, plus the Swamp Police section you saw before.

Enter the Dra... er, serpent!  The largest of the new Ninjago structure-based sets for this wave.

LEGO City Starter Set review! set 60086


My last review of a LEGO City "starter set" was back in the middle of 2013, when I was still terrible at this stuff.  Somehow, for some reason, that video has gotten over 2 million views.  My apologies to those 2 million viewers for how long-winded I was back then!  Hopefully this new one is more palatable.

Hooray!  More sets from my favorite LEGO theme have arrived.  I'm starting with the big one!
