    [REVIEW] 10268 - Vestas Wind Turbine

    It is indeed a LEGO FAN! Great review and photos!
  2. The final episode. The most demanded set of all Bricktober in the history. Is it the movie? Maybe. To me, more of the minifigures here that makes the difference. 5004938 - NINJAGO Minifigures 5004939 - TLBM Minifigures 5004941 - Classic Minifigures 5005257 - NINJAGO Minifigures (2018) 5005254 - Harry Potter Minifigures (2018) 5005255 - Jurassic World Minifigures (2018) Are you ready? Overview Name: 5005256 - Marvel Infinity War Minifigures Theme: Promotional \ Toys R Us (Bricktober) Year: 2018 Pieces: 22 pcs Minifigures: 4 Price: free with purchase of RM199 in Malaysia. Introduction All of them are exclusive to the set. You can find some of them outside but the printings are so different that you will like this version more than others. By going through them one by one, you will feel that it's a whole new experience of Infinity War after all. After they discontinued? Maybe they will be like SDCC exclusives? Okay, that's too much. Let's look into it. Box This box art is the nicest as Thanos is at the upper right corner showing off his fully powered Infinity Gauntlet. The most important number here is the 5005256 so that you can easily bricklink the set. LEGO version of Thanos. Clearer view without the plastic. Go protect Earth! Minifigures Wow! This is the most impressive war machine ever designed by LEGO! The accessories are still simple but the printings are exceptional! Let's look at it from the top to bottom. Helmet. It looks quite full with silver colored prints but when you open it up, you can see there are also printings at the cheek area makes it looked cooler than ever! Head. At the front is Ron Cheadle's smiling face but at the back you have a red coloured HUD printing! But here I think the red is too dark makes him looked like he had a punch in his left eye. Haha. Torso. The nanotech design looks very detailed with the chest piece that looks similar to Tony's mark 50. Back print is quite normal but the both side arm printings are phenomenal! Can we ask for side leg printings to make him complete? The left one is from the Airport battle set.You can see the new war machine prints are much denser than the previous version. The HUD prints are actually the same with Tony's version. The only difference is the colour. I think the red should be more transparent for it to look nicer. The side arm prints that is visible a little bit from the back here makes him look much nicer than the previous one. I can't take my eyes off of him. haha Here you can see the 004 indicating that this is actually Mark 4 war machine. See, the older one looks dull with nothing at the arm. Even Giant man wants the new one. Wong. The most anticipated character to appear in LEGO since the Dr Strange movie. The prints are very nice too. The red and blue colour combination of his robe makes him looks movie accurate. His Asian looking facial hair is also a nice touch to the minifigure. The 2x2 printed tile here is maybe one of the books in the library that he guards. Legs are well printed with the side ones too! Constipation at it's best. Tony Stark! He has side arm printings too! This hair captures the hair of Robert Downey Jr in the movie accurately. The grey jacket with the hood and the nanotech chest piece is also a very nice detailing to the minifigure. The startled face is also a very nice addition to this character. Wong! You are invited to my wedding. Bucky Barnes. This is him after cryo sleep and a new vibranium arm gifted by Black Panther, king of Wakanda. His beard is new and the use of gold colour for the vibranium arm makes it looks elegant! This minifigure also has side leg printings at the right side of the minifigure. The old arm was blasted by Tony so he had a new upgrade. Beard darkens in ice? I'm gonna get that arm. Conclusion I love this set so much as it completes my Marvel Infinity War collection! Everyone here is so amazingly designed, well printed and most importantly, EXCLUSIVE! Marvel fans, what are you waiting for? Review summary Design: 10/10 - Very nice design of minifigures that I have to give full marks for that. Minifigures: 10/10 - Can I be greedy to ask for the Collector to be added to this set as the fifth minifigure? Price / Value for money: 10/10 - Good luck getting them after they are discontinued. Be fast guys. Overall: 10/10 - Did I ever give full marks for any other sets? This is so awesome I have to put 10/10! I hope you enjoy reading my simple review and do express your comments below. Thank you and see you next October! All four sets of 2018 Bricktober.
  3. Third one, folks. This set is quite easy to get as the hype is not as much as the last 2018 bricktober. However, the minifigures are quite lovely. 5004938 - NINJAGO Minifigures 5004939 - TLBM Minifigures 5004941 - Classic Minifigures 5005257 - NINJAGO Minifigures (2018) 5005254 - Harry Potter Minifigures (2018) Overview Name: 5005255 - Jurassic World Minifigures Theme: Promotional \ Toys R Us (Bricktober) Year: 2018 Pieces: 18 pcs Minifigures: 3 with a small dinosaur Price: free with purchase of RM199 in Malaysia. Introduction The minifigures here are considered exclusive as Dr. Ian Malcolm did not appear in any other sets. Claire and Owen did come out in other sets but the designs of their outfit here is totally new prints and check out the whistling expression for Owen! Let's go into them. Box The mould of the plastic that hold them in place is quite different at the raptor compartment. They even put a round indentation there to make them easy to retrieve. The orange coloured box makes it feels like lava is flowing around them like in the movie. Standard back of the box with words.. I love this grey stoney part of the box here. It resembles the metal cage they used in the movie to keep those dinosaurs captive. Come out, stretch a bit! Minifigures Dr. Ian Malcolm is a mathematician who is one of the main characters of the Jurassic Park franchise since the beginning of the movie long ago. He is portrayed by Jeff Goldblum in the movie and appeared in the movie as a commentator only. Here we see he is wearing a black outfit showing some of his chest hair. Unlike other bricktober minifigures, he lacks leg prints and side arm prints. He is holding a torch and the hair is the same as Bruce Banner. Jeff Goldblum. Claire Dearing was the park operations manager of Jurassic World, prior to the abandonment of the park in 2015 upon the escape of the Indominus rex. She looks pretty here with a great smile and eyelashes. The light grey outfit is also very nice on her where the printings are extended to the legs. She came with a sad facial expression maybe after looking at the beloved dinosaurs died at the volcano site. Overall this is a nice minifigure with a smartphone. Phewwwiiittt... Owen Grady was a dinosaur researcher employed by Jurassic World, who conducted a behavioral research on Velociraptors. Here he looks messy in his brown vest and a weird smile. The special thing about this minifigure is the whistling facial expression he used on Gamora/dinosaurs. LOL. The expression is quite cool and brings life to this minifigure. He comes with a back pack and a belt printing along with arm detailing at his left arm. Will you marry me? Baby raptor. This is not exclusive to this set as it appeared in 3 other sets. It is a one studed baby dinosaur which is smaller than a minifigure. The blue stripe prints are very nice and the mould is amazing for such a small creature! It looks very much alive instead of a dead piece of plastic. Blue: Can I eat that? Trust me, not as a human, but as your father. Conclusion Despite the lack of hype, I feel that this set is quite adorable after I had my hands on them. Claire is lovely and Owen is cute with his whistling face. It will be worth to have as the price won't be as high in the secondary market. A very good collection of minifigure set! Review summary Playability: N/A - I've decided to skip this part. Design: 8/10 - Not bad as the torso and face prints are not ordinary prints. Minifigures: 8/10 - Not sure about the selection but having the main characters in this set is quite subtle as others are not as popular. Price / Value for money: 8/10 - You can get it at lower price than other bricktobers I think. Overall: 8/10 - Overall I would say I'm not disappointed. What say you? I hope you enjoy reading my simple review and do express your comments below. 'The end is near.' Stay tuned.
  4. Hi I'm here again for a quick and simple review of the second bricktober of 2018, Harry Potter minifigures. This is another theme that I'm not familiar with but I will still try my best to review them as minifigure collectors. 5004938 - NINJAGO Minifigures 5004939 - TLBM Minifigures 5004941 - Classic Minifigures 5005257 - NINJAGO Minifigures (2018) Let's start with them. Overview Name: 5005254 - Harry Potter Minifigures Theme: Promotional \ Toys R Us (Bricktober) Year: 2018 Pieces: 25 pcs Minifigures: 4 Price: free with purchase of RM199 in Malaysia. Introduction This set is target only for Harry Potter fans specifically as they are not much appeared in other sets or only appeared in one or two old sets. Prints are detailed but not as detail as the Ninjago minifigures in my last review. However this set does attract the attention of Harry Potter fans. Box Same limited edition box, this time in dark blue and Harry Potter shooting some lightning at the top right corner. Same but a little bit different. Let's bring them out. Minifigures Madam Rolanda Hooch. She has short grey hair, and yellow eyes like a hawk with goggles. She is the teacher in Hogwarts teaching Harry and friends how to ride on a broom. Her grey hair needs a new mould as I personally don't like this hairpiece. She is wearing her black robe with a Hogwarts batch at the torso. No side printings and the interesting part of this minifigure is the alternate face with the goggle. No leg prints and carrying a broom and a tan wand. These are the other Madam Hooch that appeared in the past. Year 2002 and 2010. I feel that the 2010 version had better printing of the torso and the head. Not sure what is the reason behind the re-release of this minifigure here. (Pictures taken from Bricklink) New Students in Hogwarts. Money can't buy everything. Horace Slughorn. He is a potions master hence the green bottle of juice in his hand here. He is retired and recruited by Dumbledore hence the wrinkles on his face of retirement. His torso is well printed with a bow tie, and back is simple printing of the buttons. No side printings and he is with an ordinary grey hair. I suppose this is the first time he appeared as a minifigure as I can't find any in bricklink. Wrong wizard. Professor Dolores Umbridge. She wears a nice pink outfit with a cat badge on her torso. I suppose she likes cats very much. She is holding a brown wand and a teacup which I suppose it is a new cup in LEGO. Her hair is nice in brown and the legs are printed as well as the side. So this is how high heels looks like in LEGO minifigure! She has a smiling face and looks a bit scary when she gets angry. These are other versions of her. The microfig is very nicely printed (Every microfig is nice to me, haha). I feel the 2007 version's hair is nicer and if anyone have both can swap it and you are welcome to show us in the comments area. Torso print I think the latest one is nicer. (Pictures taken from Bricklink) Beauty and the Beast. Boggart snape. They say Boggart is a shapeshifter who can take shape of whatever it thinks will frighten us most. However this Boggart actually brighten up this set. I love his bag, his torso and the continuity of the scarf part to the torso print with a cat biting a mouse. To me, this is the best minifigure in this set. This is the previous version of him. Awfully looking torso print and face and the hair is totally bad. However the glow in the dark head is quite interesting part here. (Pictures taken from Bricklink) In the movie, the Boggart comes with a crow on his hat. Here we have a hat but no crow. However there is a hole there and we can actually snatch that crow and put it there to complete the minifigure. Not bad at all. Conclusion As a non-Harry Potter fan, I really have a hard time appreciating them. Maybe someday after I watch the movie I will love them better. However for Harry Potter fans out there, this is a must get set as the minifigures are upgraded version of old uglier version! Slughorn is exclusive! Review summary Playability: 6/10 - Same as Ninjago. Design: 8/10 - I think I'm spoilt by the legs and side printings of the Ninjago Bricktober 2018 minifigures. Minifigures: 8/10 - As I said, I barely know them but after comparing them to their older version, they are certainly better. (Except for Madam Hooch) Price / Value for money: 8/10 - Worthy for Harry Potter fans. Overall: 7.5/10 - Maybe a Harry Potter fan will rate this higher. Should I go watch the movies? I hope you enjoy reading my simple review and do express your comments below. Jurassic World is next. Stay tuned.
  5. Go get yours. You shouldn't miss this. Thanks for the info! Sorry about the wrong information here. By the way, where are you from? Nya is certainly the gem of this set. Mohawk's torso and tattooed arm is really some amazing prints. I suppose you are a hardcore Ninjago fan. I don't really see how special is Future Jay here compared to others in this set. Maybe due to my zero knowledge of Ninjago. Haha. You're welcome! Try bricklink, I think they are there already. Thanks! Harry Potter Bricktober's review is brewing. I got them already, all I need is more time! haha I think they are more detailed than a lot of other minifigures. Yes the stone prints are very nice indeed.
  6. Hi, October is an awesome month for me with the introduction of bricktober minifigures promotion since 2017. To me, these exclusives are really nice to collect. Here is some recap of 2017 bricktober reviews by Eurobricks' marvellous golden reviewer @makoy. 5004938 - NINJAGO Minifigures 5004939 - TLBM Minifigures 5004941 - Classic Minifigures Okay, after reminiscing the past, let's look into 2018. Ninjago is the first bricktober released this year, followed by Harry Potter, Jurrasic World and Infinity War. Let's start. Overview Name: 5005257 - NINJAGO Minifigures Theme: Promotional \ Toys R Us (Bricktober) Year: 2018 Pieces: 25 pcs Minifigures: 4 Price: free with purchase of RM199 in Malaysia. Introduction Last year we thought that was the last bricktober but gladly they're not. Now we are pampered with more interesting minifigures with arm and leg printings. Even the fan is printed. Even me, a non-Ninjago fan, feels happy and excited about these minifigures. Box I love the words at the lower left corner. Limited Edition. Which means you won't find them elsewhere other than this box. I think they heard @makoy's suggestion last year about the minifigures being loosely placed in the box. Let's see why. There are some extension of the black mould plastic at the arm area to secure them in place. I didn't notice that at first but when I tried to take them out single handedly, I can't. Anybody reads these? Can't wait to get out of the box! Okay. Let's go to pose in front of the camera. Minifigures Harumi with the oni mask of hatred. Hmm, as a non-Ninjago fan, I've googled the name of this purple mask. I found out that this minifigure is actually a Princess and the story goes on. Minifigure wise, the print of the mask is truly amazing and two sides of the hair part (plume feather ponytail) can become details of some buildings for MOCers. She is holding two red katana, (I think they are NEW!), with an Armor Rock Shoulder Pads. Look at the printings at the side of the legs! I love them even though they are just a few crack lines there! The other minifigure that wearing this kind of mask are Ultra Violet (Oni Mask of Hatred) and Killow. To my surprise, under the mask is a biker's helmet instead of just one piece mask and I suppose the person under the mask and helmet is Princess Harumi with grey head and white band around the eyes. This minifig had the most accessories in this box. As of the prints, she is printed all over. The grey makes her looks like a statue with expressions. I suppose it's her transformation after she wears the oni mask of hatred? Overall, I really love the detailed prints on her torso, arms and legs. Ugly has a new definition now. Future Jay. So Jay the Blue ninja has grown up and become 'Jackie Chan' in the future and come to the present and for what purpose? Hmm, let's don't go to that. He has arm and side leg prints, and he seems to lose his left eye. No alternate face and a blue ninja robe. Hey Gandalf, he took your staff. 6L Bar with stop ring. Mohawk. He looks scary, with a black spiky hair, and a silver coloured baseball bat. One skull face, no alternate expressions and a highly detailed torso and jean print. The tatoos at the right arm looks amazing too! Yes. 2018 bricktober is better than 2017. So much better. Nya. The best minifigure so far for a Geisha looking girl. The prints are totally marvellous and the fan is very uniquely printed. I like the smirk as the alternate facial expression here on a kabuki-face printing. It's not about you. Conclusion As a non-ninjago fan, I truly don't appreciate this set as Ninjago characters but I still love them with so many detailed prints. This is totally worth for money as the minifigures are exclusive and can be used in so many ways. Review summary Playability: 6/10 - Play feature? I didn't see any at the box art. But you can make a minifigure sit, stand or run, so I give it a six. Design: 10/10 - Yes FULL marks for the design! Minifigures: 9/10 - Future Jay is quite simple, and Harumi is scary. Hence the one point deduction. Price / Value for money: 10/10 - Who doesn't love a free set? (I paid RM199 for the other set to get this free, but it's still worth it!) Overall: 8.5/10 - This is a very good set and I think Ninjago fan would love it. Even I liked it very much. I hope you enjoy reading my simple review and do express your comments below. Harry Potter is next. Stay tuned.

    Yes, but you'll need 2 Porgs. Agreed! @TESLA IS THE FUTURE I think I've seen uglier. Haha.

    Hi @Vindicare, yes it is great for outdoor photos especially cliffs with a life sized light sabre hilt. Thanks for the kind words and I think I know who you are in instagram too!

    Review: 75230 Porg

    Thanks @Kepheus. They are still cute 'penguins' in the movie. Great! Bantha milk is up! Yes. This model is of great design. Although there is only one function. Yes. Penguins! As of parts, I don't see anything special or new. I think they are all existed before this set. Please comment if you find any. Thanks! Thanks @Johnny1360. Maybe you need to get your hands on it to love it. Now my daughter is playing with it by 'feeding' it through the mouth. She unlocked a new play feature for this set. Thanks @dr_spock. Now it can eat but it needs to poop by removing the bag 2 assembly. Haha. Multiple Porg on the table should be spectacular, do post a picture here! Thanks @Garmetrowolf. I have to admit that the play feature and the minifigure count are too little. Thanks @ikba. Now that you've mentioned, I couldn't unsee that arch as a moustache! Thanks @MontyPython for the kind words! Thanks @roadstermatt. I suppose it will. All you have to do is just bookmark this link. @brobert, thanks for noticing! I have OCD too but I suppose mine are not serious, I didn't notice that until you mentioned. Here you go.

    Review: 75230 Porg

    Thanks @WhiteFang. I took the outdoor shot just after a rain, so the ambience is quite moist and gave a good effect on the photo. Yeah only two poses(open mouth and close mouth) can be done, head is fixed. It is a great brick built animal actually and good set for a MOCer to modify and share at the comments here. Yes @Anio, I gave 8/10 for the design of the model. The build is average after you understand the interior build of the Porg. I think I'll leave the improvement part to master builders out there. haha. Hi @Exile Phoenix, the mouth is movable. So it might not need any modification. I agree that maybe the weighing scale of the set value is different for everyone as i am more concern of minifigures. A cooked Porg is a great idea! and I think the Chewie from the buildable figures series is large enough to 'cook' the Porg. @Renny The Spaceman, roasted or steamed Porg sir? @jamesn, some say it looks creepy but the eyes are beautifully built and designed here. I love it's teeth! Feel free to ask questions, I am here to answer them happily!

    REVIEW: 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City

    I finally have time to read this review. Great informative review as always @WhiteFang. Now I feel like getting this set. I love that iconic father and son scene here and the number of the minifigures!!!

    Review: 75230 Porg

    Thanks for the kind words! This set is great as a display set.
  14. kaelthas

    Review: 75230 Porg

    Thanks @Exile Phoenix! Yes the head is angled up. The head is attached with the brown axle as shown in the picture above. I'm afraid it is quite hard to be modified due to the fact that the axle will punch through five technic holes to firmly connect the head to the body and the head cannot be turned too. As for the price, I'm personally looking as price per minifigure instead of pieces, for example at the same price tag, I can have four minifigures and a Thanos in 76107. So I feel that this is quite pricey as only one minifigure is included in this set. Thanks for the comment! Any other questions about the set? I'm happy to answer them here for you.
