LEGO Review – 76025 DC Comics Super Heroes Green Lantern vs. Sinestro
I have to say, this is a great build. LOVE LOVE LOVE the missiles. The method to deploy them was well thought through, and just so much fun to play with. I also like the new pieces for the little gun-stud firing “thingy”.
There are so many pros, and only one con about this set: Read More
LEGO MOC, Sort Of
A long time ago, we got a little car poly bag, and for as long as I can remember, I wanted to create a whole bunch of them. It took time here and there to collect the pieces, and when I realized that I only had a few more pieces to go, I took to Bricklink to get what I needed. At last, my collection of cars is complete!

LEGO Review – 31014-1 Power Digger
This Power Digger is just too cute. I have another little yellow construction vehicle on my desk, so I was happy to add this one. It’s like they’re cousins. If you like construction vehicles, this is a great set to have. If you have a little kid, this is a great set to have. If you’re an adult that likes LEGO, this is a great set to have. I think you get the idea. Overall, the build is REALLY fast, and if you’re not careful like me, you’ll miss a step towards the end and proclaim that it’s an illegal connection. Then you’ll quietly realize that you’ve made a mistake, fix it, and go about your building whilst pretending that didn’t just happen. Have fun!
LEGO Review – 60033 City Arctic Ice Crawler
I had no idea I could love a little LEGO truck this much! I didn’t even resent the stickers this time around. I probably should have read the box a little closer, only 113 pieces. I think this set was so nice because it was a small thoughtful gift, making it that much more fun to build. When looking at the box, I thought the final product would be much larger, mainly in length. Although I was a bit surprised by it’s size, it changed my perspective from “cool truck” to “cute truck,” like, a baby, but in a good way. Read More
LEGO Review – 10246 Ferrari & 75899 Speed Champions
Here are two sets that I just think are wonderful. However, let me warn you, the Ferrari box isn’t kidding when it says it’s expert level. I had to redo several things, and even had to have someone else be a second set of eyes at one point (not my finest building moment). On to the reviews. Read More
LEGO Review S.H.I.E.L.D. Carnage Attack
Hey everyone! I wanted so share a quick review with you today about LEGO set 76036. I love love loved the characters. There seems to be a new (to me) piece that connects Carnage’s tentacles to the post on his back. I can see this piece having a lot of potential in MOCs. As for the rest of the build. eh. The mini S.H.I.E.L.D. vehicle is neat, and in my case, I plan on adding it to the Helicarrier, now that I have finally gotten around to building it. Beyond that, I wasn’t too impressed? There are the newer guns on the ship (that were released for the Agents line) and I do like the joint on the front of the ship. The expression on the pilot’s face is priceless. In terms of price, this set is at the sweet spot. 3 characters that are licensed and a vehicle for $12, count me in, anytime. If you have a child under 10, they would LOVE this set. For the rest of us, I think it’s really about the characters. Happy Building!
LEGO Reviews 31027 & 31030 Blue Racer & Red Go-Kart
Race cars anyone? Kid Three loves all things cars and vehicles. When these sets were first announced, I knew we had to have them. I know, it’s so childish, but have you seen how cool these look?
31027 Blue Racer
I had to build the mini go-kart. I just couldn’t help myself. I have to admit, I almost bought two of these so I could also build the blue racer. Since I also purchased the Red Go-Kart set, I felt these two would work well together. At some point, I’ll probably take some funny pictures of a Mario and a mini Mario together with the vehicles.
