THE REVIEW:

Life in LEGO CITY is not always about the crime or the fires, there are hardworking LEGO minifigures that have work duties in order to make sure the city runs well on a daily basis.

And keeping up with the maintenance are the workers you see with their light repair trucks.  Making sure that light is continuing to emit from the light stand and that the traffic signals are indeed working.

First, let’s take a look at the minifigures!

And this work gives service with a smile.  Wearing his protective glasses, he sacrifices his life by being lifted on the lifting crane with no backup to watch over him.  That’s bravery and also workman’s comp waiting to happen!  Kidding.  But this is LEGO CITY afterall?

With the often smiling worker doing his repairs, the actual minifigure is a good city worker LEGO minifigure sporting the orange and blue outfit.   The graphic on the front is printed.

The set comes with a light repair truck with a lifting crane, basket with two cones.  Also, a street light with traffic lights.

The truck is fairly simple to put together.   Similar to other vehicles, the doors open and you can remove the top of the vehicle to place your repair worker inside.  There are holders on both doors are holders that can hold a hammer and wrench.  The tires are rubber.  As for stickers, the main stickers are on the license plate, the hood and also the top ceiling of the vehicle.

I like the folding lifting crane, which is placed on a rotation platform, so it can easily position the repair worker near the lamp and easily turn.


I really enjoy LEGO CITY  and the various types of workers that have been created.  For this set, you get one minifigure and a functioning vehicle with a rotating and elevating crane with a basket.

The set is great for those wanting to add a light stand to their city, but also another LEGO city worker that can be used for a variety of maintenance work.

While the vehicle may be seen at various retail, it is a product that has been recently retired.   Still, you get a minifigure, a truck and a lightstand/signal light.  Definitely a LEGO CITY set worth checking out!

RATING: **** (4.5 stars out of 5)

THE REVIEW:

With the sequel of THE LEGO MOVIE currently under production, the final releases of THE LEGO MOVIE sets were released in retail stores.

One of the more inexpensive sets from THE LEGO MOVIE is the “THE LEGO MOVIE – Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack (70817)” featuring one more the more memorable action scenes in the film as Batman and Super Angry Kitty take on the Micro Manager.

First, let’s take a look at the minifigures!

I’m sure a lot of us own a Batman minifigure by now.  And as there are different types of Batman minifigures from LEGO, this one comes with the Black outfit Batman with a double printed face with the scowl and the other smiling.  The printing is well-done on both sides of the body and you also get a cloth cape, a Batarang and grapel gun.

As for Skeletron, it’s actually more menacing than the LEGO NINJAGO Skeleton Army and kind of has that Terminator kind of vibe.  I thought they may have used the same type of body but this body for Skeletron is much different.  But I do like the grey version with the menacing face.  It also comes with a weapon.

As for Super Angry Kitty, this one is boiling hot with its red and yellow body and it’s fangs looking out.  The body and head is printed, so no need to worry about applying stickers.  But for those wanting a less cute Kitty from THE LEGO MOVIE, this is the one to get!

As for the Micro Manager, I will be upfront and say that I thought this was a basic cube and was not going to be worth building and the main reason to get this inexpensive set is for the two minifigures.

Well, after building Micro Manager, I have to say that this killing machine is rather awesome.  I love the protruding arms with the grabbing claws and I like how it has two flick missiles, a hover exhaust function and also an exploding function.

Upon building Micro Manager, a lot of thought went to the making of this simple looking killing machine, but Micro Manager turned out to be very cool, menacing and worth building (and owning).


I’m often looking for great deals on LEGO sets and “THE LEGO MOVIE – Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack (70817)” is under $10 and you can often find it on sale for $7.99 at retail stores.  With three minifigures and a killing machine, you’re actually getting your money’s worth with this set.

It may not seem like much from looking at the box cover but in truth, for its three minifigures and the multiple functions of the Micro Manager, all four for under $10, this set is a steal!

“LEGO NINJAGO – Masters of Spinjitzu – Hover Hunter (70720)” gets five stars for its price, playability and its unique, yet simple vehicle!  Worth owning!


LEGO SET: LEGO NINJAGO – Masters of Spinjitzu – Hover Hunter

ITEM #: 70720

PIECES: 79

PRICE: $11.99

AGES: 7-14


 Fight to escape the Nindroid Hover Hunter and protect the Techno-Blade!

The evil Nindroid is chasing down Ninja Cole in the fearsome Hover Hunter, featuring a computer dashboard, claw clamps and an adjustable spike seatbelt. With the Nindroid in the pilot’s seat driving at top speed to make the front saw blade spin and rip up the streets, Cole is in great danger. Help Cole dodge the Hover Hunter’s flick missiles and don’t let the Nindroids grab his valuable Techno-Blade. Includes 2 minifigures with weapons: Cole and Nindroid

  • Includes 2 minifigures with weapons: Cole and Nindroid
  • Features Nindroid pilot cockpit with claw clamps, adjustable spike seatbelt and hi-tech dashboard plus front attack spinning saw blade, 2 laser flick missiles, translucent thruster engine, twin jet engines and saw blade motifs
  • Weapons include exclusive translucent green Techno-Blade for Cole and 2 attack blades for Nindroid
  • Fire the Hover Hunter’s flick missiles
  • Speed ahead and make that huge saw blade spin!
  • Fend off Nindroid attacks with Cole’s Techno-Blade
  • Measures over 1” (4cm) high, 5” (13cm) long and 2” (7cm) wide

THE REVIEW:

For LEGO fans of “Ninjago”, you can’t really go wrong with any of the releases, especially those that are under $14.99.

You tend to get more bang for the buck and the same can be said with the “Hover Hunter” which comes with a Cole minifigure and a Nindroid.

The set comes with the evil Nindroid’s Hover Hunter which comes with a saw blade that spins when you roll it and its menacing blades and two flick missiles.

But fear not, as always, the Earth ninja, Cole can take this Hover Hunter down with his green Techno-Blade.

Before we begin, let’s take a look at the minifigures:

Cole sure has gone through several transformations.  No longer sporting the Ninja wrap for disguise, his suit showcases the golden emblem featuring the Earth element symbol and the gold metallic paint is nicely painted.  The green techno-blade is translucent and while I will miss the black katana and staff of the Dragons, this is still a cool weapon to take on the nasty, nindroid pests.

The Nindroid is menacing and also features a metallic silver paint on hits head and body.  I find it interesting that these Nindroid is powered by the shuriken in the middle of its back (also featured on the Hover Hunter).  It can utilize the blades that are on top of its Hover Hunter.

As for the vehicle itself, I absolute love thinking beyond the box for LEGO vehicle engineering.  I like how the vehicle, when rolled, moves the spinblade.  There is a lot of thought that went into how to make this vehicle can become functional, cool and inexpensive.

I like the use of the purple, silver, red and black…the signature color for the Nindroids.   If anything, I love the overall look of the vehicle and the parts featured in this set is quite unique and its quite interesting to see the enemies receive a cool, menacing vehicle such as the Hover Hunter and even better when you can find it at a low price.


The “LEGO NINJAGO – Masters of Spinjitzu – Hover Hunter (70720)” is yet another NINJAGO set that is priced just right for LEGO fans and fans of the series.  You get two minifigures and a vehicle, a cool, menacing one at that!

Children will find this LEGO set to be cool, parents will find it to be affordable and if you can find it for under $10, you are definitely getting it for deal!

While you may still find the Hover Hunter at retail stores, it has sold out on LEGO SHOP online.  But for fans of the “LEGO NINJAGO” series, this set is definitely worth owning!

life in plastic: LEGO CITY – Demolition Starter Set (60072) review

“LEGO CITY – Demolition Starer Set” gets five stars for its price, playability, accessories but it’s also more bang for your buck!  Recommended!


LEGO SET: LEGO CITY – Demolition Starter Set

ITEM #: 60072

PIECES: 85

PRICE: $9.99

AGES: 5-12


 

Join the demolition experts in LEGO® City!

Join the demolition experts! The demolition of a derelict building is near completion, and with only a small part of the bathroom remaining it’s time to finish off the job! Operate the powerful jackhammer, swing the heavy sledgehammer, then jump aboard the awesome front loader and scoop up the rubble and remaining debris. What a busy day! Includes 4 minifigures with assorted accessories: 3 demolition workers and a foreman.

  • Includes 4 minifigures with assorted accessories: a foreman and 3 demolition workers (2 men and a woman)
  • Features a front loader and a building section with toilet, water and pipes
  • Accessories include 2 warning cones, jackhammer, sledgehammer and a megaphone
  • Join the demolition experts!
  • Operate the awesome front loader
  • Clear the debris
  • Front loader measures over 3” (8cm) high, 3” (10cm) long and 1” (4cm) wide

THE REVIEW:

There are times when you can find a very awesome LEGO set for under $10.

And for Spring 2015, one of those awesome LEGO sets is the “LEGO CITY – Demolition Starter Set (60072)” which features four LEGO minifigures (a foreman, driver and construction workers which include a male and female), a front loader tractor, toilet with pipes and a few tools which include a sledgehammer, jackhammer and a megaphone plus two warning cones.

All this can be completed in a half an hour.

Before we begin, let’s take a look at the minifigures:

Typically for a set that is $9.99, you are going to see two minifigures. But for this Demolition Starter Set, you get four!

All figures have printed torsos and each comes with a helmet, while the female character has her helmet and hair connected and the other demolition worker with head phones.

I have to give LEGO big kudos for the inclusion of a female demolition minifigure.  While there are female characters, you usually find them in big sets or are often the damsel in distress, the rebel or the thief in LEGO City sets.  So, it’s good to feature the female minifigure in the demolition starter set.

Everyone minifigure is smiling in this set, except the driver, who has a smirk and beads of sweat coming down.

As for the vehicles, the front loader tractor is pretty cool  As a smaller tractor, the loader can swivel up and down and set the tractor up to lift particles from the ground.  It’s a simple build but works very well.

Of course, I also enjoy this inexpensive playset for the addition of the front loader but you also get a bathroom set with pipes bursting.

In addition, you get a few power tools as well with but the overall playset is quite interesting and a great addition for those who need to build a toilet and it’s cool that you get extra parts included.


The “LEGO CITY – Demolition Starter Set” has been one of the best under $10 LEGO sets that I have reviewed.

Not only do you get a vehicle, a playset, extra parts but also tools!  But one of the biggest and major plus is the inclusion of four LEGO minifigures.

Parents can’t go wrong with this set for their children and for the young at heart, along with the vehicles and playset, you also get four characters and powertools, which is a major plus!

With many LEGO City minifigures in sets focusing on law, repair or other areas.  It’s great to have a set that focuses on those who do repairs or demolishing.

Overall, “LEGO CITY – Demolition Starer Set” gets five stars for its price, playability, accessories but it’s also more bang for your buck!  Recommended!

life in plastic: LEGO Legends of Chima – Gorzan’s Walker (30262) Review

January 17, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

legoreviews

I have not been disappointed by a LEGO Legends of Chima polybag release at all. Each of the minifigure releases showcase a character with wonderful sculpting for the helmet and awesome detail. And you really can’t go wrong with these releases being priced at under $4-5.


LEGO SET: LEGO Legends of Chima – Gorzan’s Walker

ITEM #: 30262

PIECES: 34

PRICE: $3.99

AGES: 6-12


THE REVIEW:

Available at TARGET stores is the LEGO Legends of Chima – Gorzan’s Walker (30262).  Gorzan is the leader of the Gorilla Tribe in Chima.

Let’s first take a look at the LEGO minifigure.

As Foltrax and others are included with the LEGO Legends of Chima – Flying Phoenix Fire Temple (70146), this is the first in the Phoenix Tribe to have an orange head to match the wings.

As the set is quick to build, you get a few extra pieces when all is done.

Like other LEGO Legends of Chima minifigures, Gorzan comes with a crystal and also a helmet. Gorzan’s body features printing on both sides of the torso.  But I love the detail of the helmet.

But when you remove the helmet, there is no doubt that Gorzan has one of the menacing faces of a minifigure from Chima despite being one of the good guys in the land.

The Gorzon Walker is a nice, simplistic and miniature vehicle.  The arms and legs extend and you have two controls in the front for Gorzan to control.  Blasters at the side.  So, despite its simplistic look, you know this vehicle can crush things and blast the enemy!

Of course, if you want the best vehicle operated by Gorzon, then you definitely want Gorzon’s behemoth vehicle, the Gorilla Striker!


I have a theory of LEGO polybags (with minifigures) and that they are so quick to sale if you see them at retail and that if you see one, you best buy it ASAP!

And so far, I have not been disappointed by a LEGO Legends of Chima polybag release at all. Each of the minifigure releases showcase a character with wonderful sculpting for the helmet and awesome detail. And you really can’t go wrong with these releases being priced at under $4-5.

With Gorzan’s Walker, the walker itself is simple but the minifigure is definitely worth owning! I really got lucky I found one at a Target store as polybags are hard to come by. So, if you do see it at your retail store, definitely pick one or two up!

RATING: **** (4 stars out of 5)

The “LEGO GALAXY SQUAD – SPACE SWARMER” is one of the cheapest sets you can find online but with this set, you are definitely getting more bang for your buck!  Featuring two minifigures and one of the best vehicles I have seen under $11.99! Recommended!


LEGO SET: LEGO GALAXY SQUAD – Space Swarmer

ITEM #: 70700

PIECES: 86

PRICE: $11.99

Zap the alien buggoid before he nabs the Galaxy Squad’s robot!

The evil alien buggoid is buzzing around in his Space Swarmer. Don’t let him capture the Galaxy Squad robot sidekick with the ship’s grabber mouth! Help him to blast away from the buggoid’s sonic gun with his jet pack! Get to safety, then aim and fire the blasters to stop that swarming space critter! Includes 2 minifigures with weapons: alien buggoid and robot sidekick with a jet pack.

  • Includes 2 minifigures with assorted weapons: alien buggoid and robot sidekick
  • Features grabber mouth, opening cockpit, moving wings and poseable legs
  • Also includes jet pack, alien sonic gun and a blaster
  • Dodge the Space Swarmer’s grabber mouth!
  • Blast that bug!
  • Dodge the beams of the alien sonic gun!
  • Measures over 1″ (4cm) high, 5″ (14cm) long and 3″ (10cm) wide

THE REVIEW:

In 2012-2013, LEGO released their latest Space theme titled “LEGO GALAXY SQUAD”.

With 2011 featuring aliens and UFO’s, this time featuring humans and robots working together to fight against alien insects in the galaxy.

And the set I’m going to review is the LEGO GALAXY SQUAD – Space Swarmer (70700) set which was released in 2012 and features Blue Team Galaxy Squad robot taking on an Alien Buggoid and its Space Swarmer.

First, let’s take a look at the minifigures!

The Blue Team Galaxy Squad Robot has a large blaster, jet pack with two space guns and an antenna.  While the minifigure does have printing on both sides, of course, the jet pack will cover it up and obscure it.  The helmet is the head and for the most part, it’s a unique looking minifigure.  I like the detail on the outfit but also how these usual parts were made into a wonderful weapon to take on the Space Swarmer!

As for the Alien Buggoid, these are the pilots and carry a blaster.  Printing are on both sides of the torso, while the head is nicely sculpted.

The Space Swarmer is a very cool vehicle.  From its arachnid legs, its wings and cockpit, spiked mouth in the front, its no doubt a menacing vehicle.

I love the creativity that went into making this vehicle and its color scheme.

There are a few stickers to put on, such as the front portion and the instrument panel but it’s definitely stickers that add to the look of the Space Swarmer!


Overall,  I was quite pleased with the LEGO GALAXY SQUAD – Space Swarmer!

During the holidays, this set was priced at under $8, so it was a steal!  You get two minifigures and one of the coolest vehicles I have seen under the $11.99 pricepoint!

And I have no doubt in my mind that I will be purchasing more LEGO GALAXY SQUAD as I love the creativity behind them but also the sci-fi aspect to the entire set.

Definitely recommended!

life in plastic: LEGO STAR WARS – Elite Clone Trooper & Commando Droid Battle Pack (9488) Review

January 17, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

legoreviews

The “LEGO STAR WARS – Elite Clone Trooper & Commando Droid Battle Pack” is an awesome set for the ARC and ARF Troopers alone!  But you also get two Commando Droids and a cool, much smaller Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon.


LEGO SET: LEGO STAR WARS – Elite Clone Trooper & Commando Droid Battle Pack

ITEM #: 9488

PIECES: 98

PRICE: $12.99

AGES: 6-12


From the LEGO website:

Purchase from LEGO Shop | Purchase from Amazon

Bombard the Separatist forces with the Republic artillery cannon!

The Separatists have sent a new droid enemy to attack the forces of the Republic, but the clone army’s elite troopers have a new weapon of their own: the powerful Republic artillery cannon! With elevating turret and flick missile, those clankers will be running for cover! Includes 4 minifigures: ARC trooper, ARF trooper and 2 new enemy Commando Droids.

  • Includes 4 minifigures: ARC Trooper, ARF Trooper and 2 Commando Droids
  • Features Republic artillery cannon and 5 blasters
  • Republic artillery cannon features flick missile
  • Elevate the turret!
  • Fire the flick missile!
  • Republic artillery cannon measures over 5” (13cm) long and 3” (8cm) tall

THE REVIEW:

As part of the STAR Wars Clone Wars series, the Elite Clone Troopers featuring the ARC and ARF Troopers were one of the cooler looking characters on the series (season 3).

And sure enough, in 2012, the Elite Clone Troopers were released in a cool LEGO set for $12.99.  You get an Arc Trooper, an ARF Trooper, two commando droids and Republic Artillery Cannon.

But first, let’s take a look at the minifigures!

With this set going for $9.99-$12.99, immediately as a collector, I see this set as a bargain! With minifigures literally being sold for around $5 each or more online, the fact is that you get four, which is great for those who like to army build.

You get one ARC Trooper and an ARF Trooper.  The ARC Trooper has different colors with the blue and red cloth cape. The ARF Trooper has some blue but has an all white outfit with red shoulders and arms.   Both sides are well-detailed but I love the sculpt and design of the helmets.

Faces for both figures are the same.

The Commando Droids are better looking than the older LEGO droids from a decade ago but remain basic but I do like the better head mold.

You get a much smaller Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon which can hold one minifigure.

The Cannon takes about a half hour to build and you get a few extra pieces included.  The legs are stable and unlike the 2014 releases, this cannon does not shoot pegs out, but does have flick firing missiles.

The weapon can easily rotate and its legs are easily bendable. The back side of the weapon can fit a single minifigure which can grasp onto bars.


Overall, this LEGO STAR WARS set will entertain the Star Wars collector, LEGO AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO) and children.

For one, you get four minifigures and a weapon that can shoot Lego pieces for less than $13. You get extra Commando Droids for army building and you get a very cool looking ARC and ARF Trooper!

While the set will most likely appeal to the fans following “STAR WARS – The Clone Wars”, I still feel the set is worth the purchase as it is the first to include a Commando Droid and ARC Trooper minifigures.

While I think the more recent sets are cool with their peg firing cannons, I can see AFOL’s purchasing this set primarily for the minifigures.

But the “LEGO STAR WARS – Elite Clone Trooper & Commando Droid Battle Pack” is an cool set and it was recently retired by LEGO (I found it at our local TARGET after it was retired), so hopefully you can find this set for a very good price on online auctions.

RATING: **** (4 stars out of 5)

 

life in plastic: LEGO NINJAGO: Masters of Spinjitzu – Ninja Glider (30080) Review

January 17, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

legoreviews

I have not been disappointed by a LEGO NINJAGO polybag release at all. There is no doubt that the Ninja Glider has a cool factor associated with it and if you are a fan of the series,  you really can’t go wrong with this polybag release being priced at under $4-5.


LEGO SET: LEGO NINJAGO: Masters of Spinjitzu – Ninja Glider

ITEM #: 30080

PIECES: 26

PRICE: $3.99

AGES: 6-12


THE REVIEW:

Once available at TARGET stores and also released with the SUN Newspaper in the UK as a promotional item is the LEGO NINJAGO – Ninja Glider (30080).

The polybag features the character Zane and was a popular polybag that people snatched up in droves back in 2011 and the only way to get it was on eBay.

Let’s first take a look at ZANE, the Ninja of Ice.

The minifigure features ZANE in his original outfit with his ninja sash belt, his golden emblem which represents the Element of Ice.  Printing is only one side for this minifigure and he comes with a black katana sword.

The wrap is removable from his head and is nicely sculpted all around.

The ninja glider is pretty cool as these blades act as wings.  The blades are moveable and  Zane’s hands grabs hold of the glider through the front.

I have to give it to LEGO for creating a cool but also interesting polybag set.  While one can’t fathom how blades can act as a glider, for LEGO NINJAGO, anything is possible and for fans of the series, the LEGO NINJAGO – Ninja Glider looks too cool to pass up!


I have a theory of LEGO polybags (with minifigures) and that they are so quick to sale if you see them at retail and that if you see one, you best buy it ASAP!

And back in 2011, with ninjas always popular with kids, the LEGO NINJAGO – Ninja Glider was snatched up quickly. While the minifigure is not as detailed as today’s ZANE or other polybagged minifigures, the bladed glider in combination with the minifigure was too cool to pass up!

I have not been disappointed by a LEGO NINJAGO polybag release at all. Each of the minifigure released showcase a cool ninja factor that all kids and even AFOL’s like to see, especially when sold for under $4-5.

If you are a LEGO NINJAGO fan and find these cheap on online auctions, the LEGO NINJAGO – Ninja Glider is worth checking out!

RATING: **** (4 stars out of 5)
