  1. Here is my review on 75296 Darth Vader Meditation Chamber: THE GOOD: Great display piece. Love the design of the open/closing experience. Interesting building experience. Great details in building the stairs. Love the stand. Great minifigures. THE NOT SO GOOD: none (really can't find anything negative about this) I like this set very much. I had a great experience with this and I do think this is an excellent set. Really like some of the design and building experience in this. On top of that, it's a great display piece on any desks or shelves. It's always nice to see Lego releases Star Wars sets not based on vehicles. I wish LEGO releases more sets like this. Anyway, totally will recommend this to everyone.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    I have a feeling Bandmates S2 might not be widely available in NZ since Toyco already removed it from their page. Now should I get the boombox at 55% off RRP now just for the axe guitar or buy full price at LEGO store when it releases ... hmmm
  3. Here is my review on 10776 Mickey & Friends Fire Truck & Station: THE GOOD: Minifigures are great. Finally, Pluto and without the need to spend hundreds of dollars. THE NOT SO GOOD: Not much memorable to talk about. Lacking play features considering this is a 4+ set. Price still a bit on the higher end. I bought this set purely for Pluto. And it's great it's a set under $100 but feel pricey though. For those who still don't own a Goofy minifig, this set will be a bargain although the torso of this Goofy is a variant to the one in the Disney Train set. Overall, as an adult fan of lego I'm not expecting anything from a 4+ set in terms of building experience but compared to the farm set, I found the Farm one is a lot more interesting. I will recommend this set if you want Pluto and Goofy OR if you are just a disney fan. Otherwise, go for the farm one.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    yes just saw that too, I hope they still going to release the bandmates series 2.....
  5. Here is my review on the GWP 40486 Mini Adidas Originals Superstar: THE GOOD: looks great and impressed on how it looks in its side. interesting build overall and some great use of new pieces. Printed tiles for the iconic 3 stripes. THE NOT SO GOOD: It depends on your region but better roll out plan in AU/NZ please. This is a great GWP. To me, it made a better impression than the 1:1 one. I like this colour scheme better too. Having a minifigure is just a nice icing on the cake. I'm also surprised with the overall building experience and Lego did went the extra mile for packaging on this one. I wish the adidas decors are also printed but I probably asking too much. I just hope the roll out / availability of this set can be improved and less stressful. For AU & NZ, this promotion is not yet live on Lego shop at home but it was available when physically purchasing the Adidas Originals Superstar in Certified Store. But they didn't have stock on 1st July so they ended up taking everyone's details and stock finally arrived few days ago. Anyway, totally recommending this to everyone if you can still get hold of this set.

    REVIEW: 43111 Candy Castle Stage

    REVIEW: 43114 Punk Pirate Ship

    I think they intended to be a mixture of it. yes, and I like the idea of the squid playing drum. The torso of the shark and mermaid have very nice printing though. hmm I wonder if this can happen in the same scale. might worth a try.

    REVIEW: 43111 Candy Castle Stage

    thanks, i guess the colour is just these selection it focused on chocolate theme? if they go for a more fruity feel, would have been more colour and more expensive i guess XD

    REVIEW: 76162 Black Widow's Helicopter Chase

    There is a dual blades chopper, but it was different design! I wish they release the US special set (with white outfit and red guardian) outside US !!!
  10. Here is another review from me on Vidiyo 43111 Candy Castle Stage: THE GOOD: The bear minifigure is excellent, especially the head piece. I like the mini drum set on stage. THE NOT SO GOOD: Pricing as usual is high for Vidiyo sets. Bland compared to the other 2 Vidiyo sets I own from this wave. This set, it does capture a very pop vibe and nice candy themed stage but definitely not a castle as per the set name. The minifigures are excellent especially the Blue Beary Guitarist, I was surprised to see how they dual moulded the head with the clear blue on top. Some nice touches in the build but compared to the other 2 sets I have from this wave, It does few a bit bland both in terms of the end product and building experience. It's really really an expensive box of pop colour parts pack. Having said that, if this is your first Vidiyo set or for kids that only started collecting Lego, this is not a bad choice if you can get it with a discount.

    REVIEW: 43112 Robo HipHop Car

    yes nice minifig. Vidiyo itself really has lots of great minifigs. Great article. looks like I'm the only few people who like this set. I agree and wish the pricing is 10~20% cheaper but I doubt this will happen =(

    REVIEW: 43114 Punk Pirate Ship

    Understandable. I guess in terms of discount, it depends on how much you get. yes, in general vidiyo are expensive. yup, the 3in1 pirate ship is one great set.
  13. Another review on Vidiyo sets from me, this time we take a look at 43114 Punk Pirate Ship: THE GOOD: The pirate ship stage looks excellent. The building experience is interesting to keep me engaged. Excellent selections of minifigures. Love the drummer set up. Great with the details in the backstage area. THE NOT SO GOOD: Hard to find something that needed to highlight that is not so good, personally may be a place for mic stand? Could be cheaper but then you often get discount of Vidiyo so eventually not really an issue. This is another good set in my opinion. No matter whether this theme is a success or not, the sets in this wave so far are pretty good in my opinion. This pirate ship does look good with great minifigures. And it's totally feasible as well. (I have seen actual sound stage looks like this). With matching decorations in the background, you can indeed create a customer summer music festival. Pricing often being brought up with Vidiyo sets but with a 15%~25% often, and the overall satisfaction after building it, pricing no longer relevant in my opinion. I totally recommend this set to everyone, I'm not a fan of Vidiyo itself and bought this purely based on the look but so far, I'm really happy with sets I bought so far.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    My elephant body and head arrived. Funny how this arrived earlier than my order 3 orders placed earlier... wondering if it's delay or lost again.
