LEGO Series 8 Collectible Minifigure Review: Alien Villainess #8833

with 2 comments

The LEGO Collectible minifigures seems to have a dark side: the rejects. For every absurd figure that could never fit into a regular LEGO line, there are some of them just hit a bit too close to home and go from “What if…?” to what happened? Read the rest of this entry »

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Review: Quinjet Aerial Battle #6869

without comments

The final Marvel LEGO set is the biggest one, but instead of being the Helicarrier or some cityscape for our heroes to destroy, it ends up being the classic Avengers vehicle- the Quinjet! Part of me is still in awe that we even HAVE LEGO Avengers. Read the rest of this entry »

LEGO Alien Conquest Review: Space Alien Defender #7050

with 2 comments

With the first Alien Striker set picked up, I figured I might as well just grab another one. After all, one alien is just stranded but a pair of them could be the beginnings on an invasion!

The alien defense unit soldier is patrolling the city in his swift scout vehicle when an alien invader whizzes by on his spaced-out mini hover bike. Nab the invader with the scout vehicle’s rotating anti-UFO laser and 2 flick missiles! He won’t make it past the fully armed alien defense unit this time. Read the rest of this entry »
