    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Picked the starter course set with the NES (still haven't build the NES) and I actually like MARIO. It's actually pretty interesting and just love all the printed elements. Made a video on how I feel about it here.

    I placed order on some of the wing pieces. I actually bought the starter course along with the NES set as I want the mario sound effect. The starter course turned out to be something really good. those bigger square plates will be useful for miniature diorama builds.

    REVIEW: 80014 Sandy's Speedboat

    did I? I think I briefly mentioned it when talking a bout sandy. yes, if you don't have those minifigs then this is a good set to buy as the other sets price are even more ridiculous. I wish they exclude the speedboat with a $20 cheaper price tag =P
  4. Here is my review on Monkie Kid 80014 Sandy's Speedboat: THE GOOD: Great Spider Mech. Brilliant design on the legs and overall shape. Excellent Spider's Queen minifigure. In comparison, a cheaper way to get Pigsy and Sandy's minifig/big fig in the same set. Love the cloud piece attached to Monkie Kid's surf board. THE NOT SO GOOD: Still pricey ... The speedboat not the star of the set, May be it's just me but that's how I felt after I built it. Overall, I like this set and think it's a good addition to the Monkie Kid theme. For those who knows about Journey to the West will definitely appreciate the Spider's Queen minifigure. Although the set is called speedboat, I do feel after building the set the Spider mech is way better in terms of design and look compared to the speedboat. Yes, the theme is overpriced but the contents often quite good. Great minifigures and parts. This set though, is a cheaper way to get both Pigsy and Sandy in one set. I do recommend this set if you like this theme or keen in getting a cool spider mech build, a few modifications would easily made the mech into a legit spider.

    My order arrived today!!!
  6. Here is my review on 75980 Attack on The Burrow: THE GOOD: The Burrow itself is excellent, love some of the techniques they used to make it nice Lots of interesting small exterior details and furnitures builds 2 Owls and 1 pig (Great to see the pig return and utilised) 8 minifigures and most of them are great and I love Bellatrix's hair piece THE NOT SO GOOD: Harry Potter minifig is a bit dull compared to the other minifigures included The fire build kinda just there to make the set name legit but not really significant even though it's nice to get more flame pieces. Overall, I think this is an excellent set. Harry Potter line has been very consistent in the past 2 years. This is one of the best buildings from this theme. I don't have the previous version so I can't really compare but I really like the exterior design of this set. I think it's a smart design, given it's a doll house type build but it still look like a complete 3 dimensional building because of the way they designed it. The Burrow itself has so much cramped inside and so many things to discover. Also it's very nice to see 8 minifigures with some exciting hair pieces. I'm very happy with the end results and would totally recommend this set to everyone!

    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Absolutely loving the new baby Ankylosaurus, I wish lego included another one and I'm even fine with less stuff in the build if they include one more XD. This wave turns out pretty good.

    REVIEW: 60266 Ocean Exploration Ship

    Yup, it's looking good from the outside. Totally. There is quite a bit of space to add power functions between the deck and the hull.
  10. Here is my review on 60266 Ocean Exploration Ship: THE GOOD: The ship does look massive. Love the new sting ray. Glad the Great White is back. Interesting new diving gears. Great use of stickers to make the aquariums. Great lab area. THE NOT SO GOOD: The scale of the main hall is a bit off. Look even a bit small for minifigure to stand in top level. Not indication on how minifigures can get to the lab. The pirate shipwreck's steering is a bit too modern. This set by no means is bad, it has it great parts and its own flaws. I particularly like its size when view from the size, the minifigures, the marine animals and the research lab. And I really like the use of stickers this time round. However, I really feel disappointed when there is no implication on how the minifigures are going to get to the lab. The scale is a bit off. This is indeed an expensive set but I'm glad I bought it 25% off which was a good deal. I will only recommend if you desperately need the great white or never own a lego boat before, otherwise wait for a clearance later this year.

    REVIEW: 80009 Pigsy's Food Truck

    yup, it's guilty pleasure XD
  15. Here is my review on Monkie Kid's 80009 Pigsy's Food Truck: THE GOOD: Great interior details inside the food truck. Great opening mechanisms for interior access. I like the graphic designs on the stickers. Excellent Pigsy minifigure. Interesting build for the Pig Mascot Machine Gun. Several elements that feed some dark humours for corrupted mind like me XD THE NOT SO GOOD: Because of the size of the truck, you can't just put it into a typical Lego City setting. I wonder if there is a way to replicate the excelling opening mechanism without visible gap for the joints. Overall, I think this is a good set. I enjoyed the building experience, the outcome and the minifigures. Thanks to size, the designer is able to put a lot of interior details into the food truck. I do feel the weaponised look is a bit over the top and too Zombie Apocalypse type of truck but it's ok the good parts overcome the little shortcomings and it's my personal preference anyway. The Pigsy minifigure is just great, can't wait to use the head with the torso and legs of the Pig Costume Guy XD. And I really wonder what's the idea behind using sausages on the grill and decorations while Pigsy is obviously related to Pigs. Also the back of the Pig Mascot on top, what do you think it looks like? XD. Despite a few flaws, I will still recommend this to everyone. It's not as good as the Monkey King mech but this is also good. And the price is probably one of the better ones in the overall Monkey Kid theme, in fact I found this set with the most reasonable pricing.
