  1. Hi folks, I'm making this compilation by using pictures taken from bricklink as I don't have them in my stash. I do sincerely hope this list will help you in collecting these cute Unikitties ever produced. Enjoy! These are the angry ones. I started sorting them using red. It seems like they are still cute here but SDCC version would be hard to get. Then green, purple and blue. The first one from the left is in the large Sea Cow. Others should be easier to get. Colourfully printed unikitties! Here I found that the one from the double decker couch had two expressions but I can't find any coding for that in bricklink. Oh, another SDCC... Lastly these are mostly from the Unikitty sets which is quite easy to obtain and their prices are not bad in bricklink. Special thanks to @julesvincent and @TeriXeri for pointing them out and the pictures. I added this one. Notice the CMF unikitty in LEGO Movie 2 CMF series is a brand new unikitty as I can't see any similar one among old unikitties. The closest one would be tlm081 the SDCC one but the new one has a bigger mouth opening. We have a wolverine wanabe unikitty and a large ultrakatty. Do comment below if I left out any! This is the review of the Minifigure Unikitty Series 1 by the great cmf reviewer @WhiteFang. Hope you like this compilation!
  2. Hello everyone. It has been a while since my last review. Now that I have my hands on this colourful spacemen set, I gave a little bit of my time to make this review. This is a quick one, if you have any question, just ask in the comment area and I'll try my best to take a photo and answer your question. Enjoy! These are all the space guys I have in my stash now. Not all are included in this set. Introduction There are lots of colours of spacemen since the classic space. I think after getting this set, I only need red and black to complete the whole spacemen collection (correct me if I'm wrong). So what are you waiting for? This is really a worthy set to grab! Overview Name: 70841 Benny's Space SquadYear: 2018Pieces: 68Minifigures: 4 plus a droidPrice: RM49 / £12.99 The Box Very nice purplish blue starter pack sized box. Now you know the names of the spacemen at the back of the box. The content of the box. Two bags without number. The parts in the bags. All other spacemen got classic faces. Only Benny has two facial expressions. Benny's alternate surprised face. He is the only one faded throughout the years. Accessories. The builds are simple and easy spaceship and space cart. The droid feels like Star Wars. The slope is printed. Tony: Great. Now the Infinity Stones can speak. Summary review Playability: 5/10 Not really playable but the colours are great for photos! Design: 9/10 I love the colours! Price: 10/10 Very worthy space starter pack! Overall: 9/10 This is a good set for minifigures. I hope you enjoy reading my simple review and do express your comments below.
  3. 2019 is here and we've seen this set around since March 2018. Marvel LEGO fans are thrilled when the UCS Hulkbuster is finally announced but when it actually arrived, I sensed hatred more than love towards this LEGO mech. So, please leave your comments whether you agree or disagree of the 10 reasons that I gather from the internet. This set is still available in LEGO.com. 1. BLUE TECHNIC AXLE PIN AWKWARDLY PLACED AT THE SHOULDER. All those red and suddenly a blue technic pin showing at the shoulder is quite awkward in this scenario. Maybe a new red coloured pin can be a better alternative? Or we can substitute this Technic, Axle Pin with Friction Ridges Lengthwise coded 43093 in bricklink with a tan or grey coloured part to make it blend into the shoulder pad better than this basic colour contrast of red and blue. 2. WRONG COLOURED CHEST LIGHT BRICK. The light brick in this set is a great bonus for us all and I understand that LEGO only produce red and yellow light bricks in the past. Why not make a new blue light brick for this iconic set of LEGO mech? I'm sure the exclusiveness of a blue light brick in this set will make this set more popular. 3. RESTRICTED ELBOW MOVEMENT. To make this pose, I had to remove the arm at the elbow, and then place it directly on the shoulder and fortunately it works quite well for the photo . Now if you notice the right arm (the intact one), the gold plate at the outer part of the elbow is blocking the arm to be moved side way as well as the grey round plate at the inner part of the elbow. This actually defied the purpose of the ball joint at the elbow which suppose to make the arm more flexible. 4. WEAK GRIP OF THE HANDS. He is holding the fire extinguisher? Or the fire extinguisher is sitting on his last finger? I would say it was a hard time balancing the red can of powder in his hand. Other than that, I like it that Iron man can sit inside nicely without any stud so that he can be easily taken out from the seat. I'm not a MOCer so I can't really suggest how to make another extra finger for him. Longer finger would help in the grip too I guess. 5. LACK OF KNEE JOINT As you can see, the designers traded the stability of the model with the flexibility of his knees. The long brown technic axle is to be plunged into the lower part of the leg so that the weight of the whole model will be directed straight towards the heel. I think there must be another way out for it to be able to pose better. 6. RESTRICTED HIP MOVEMENT. This pose took me 30 minutes to make it balance. As you can see, i removed the knees, and connected only one of the double click ball joints to the hip. The thigh parts are only resting on the lower legs. Luckily the sole of his foot is wide enough to support the 'running' pose. Modification is direly needed. 7. INSIGNIFICANT GLOW IN THE DARK PIECES. Yes! We have glow in the dark parts in this set! But the proportion of the pieces and the size of the model is not right. More pieces or larger parts would be nice. 8. UNABLE TO STAND UPRIGHT. Look at the ball part between the sole and the lower leg, they are suppose to stabilise the model but the space is a little bit too much so the Hulkbuster is kind of leaning on the respective ball part of the leg instead of standing up straight. 9. TOO SKINNY. Hulkbuster in the movie is very bulky and large to be sturdy enough to fight the Hulk. Here he looks a little bit malnourished. 10. STICKERS! The UCS label sticker is very hard to apply without creating air bubbles. The decals for the model is not very abundant here, why not give us printed ones? Alright, now that we are done with the downside of having this model, but to me as a collector, this set is still a must get to complete my collection of LEGO Hulkbusters. For MOCers, this set provides a good framework for you to do modification for a larger and better Hulkbuster. Other than the model, the platform build is impeccable with large black 8x16 tiles, lots of 2x4 tiles, and the side builds of yellow machine arms. The comparison of 76031, 76104 and 76105 Hulkbusters heads. The prints are very nice gold and they are exclusive to their respective sets. This is my previous review of 76031 and 76104. Mark 43 suit with a transparent head. This looks like an unfinished work of Tony. But the details of the suit is definitely magnificent. This suit is exclusive to this set too. The accessories of the set. Veronica is amazing with the stand. The fire extinguisher is my favourite here as it looks so similar to a real one. A comparison with Smaug. He looks like the gold dwarf statue in the movie. I mean the size. More to compare with old Hulkbusters. The height of them are just at the waist of the UCS version. More buildable LEGO figures. Now Smaug doesn't look that big. Conclusion Despite the bad aspect of the Hulkbuster, I still feel that this is a good buy before it retires. As I mentioned above, there are lots of room to make it a better version of Hulkbuster, so this set can become an official collection, or you can modify it to become a bulkier, more flexible version of a LEGO mech. Review Summary Playability: 6/10 - This model is more of a display model on the platform provided. Playability score actually decreased along with the lack of the ability to pose him properly. Design / Building Experience: 8/10 - The design is very nice but it can be better. Too skinny. Still a high score because it can be a good foundation for MOC. Minifigures: 9/10 - Great minifigure! All the printings and the details are marvelous! But why not put a Tony Stark minifigure as well? Overall: 7.5/10 - This set is still available in store. Get it before it retires. Hope you enjoy the review, do share your thoughts in the comments!
  4. Comparison
  5. Thank you @julesvincent and @TeriXeri for the addition! I made this on a train ride home, and totally relying on bricklink for this, your information is very valuable and I will add them in after I'm home. Thank you so much.
  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.

    Review: 70841 Benny's Space Squad

    Review: 70841 Benny's Space Squad

    Thanks @Lyichir for the comment. While I'm still thinking of how to answer your question, @Space Police XVIII already did that for me, thanks a lot! Yes! Unbox them now! The 'mandible' of the helmet does get thicker throughout the years. Thanks again @Space Police XVIII for the great picture!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

    [REVIEW] 10268 - Vestas Wind Turbine

    It is indeed a LEGO FAN! Great review and photos!
  12. 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.

    Review: 75230 Porg

    Hello everyone. Star Wars is an undying franchise in our universe. Have you read the review of The Betrayal at Cloud City by @WhiteFang yet? After a time travelling journey, let's come back to the present timeline to check on this cute little stocky creature from Ahch-To island which appeared in Star Wars Episode VII: The Last Jedi. Special thanks to LEGO CEE and Eurobricks for giving me this amazing reviewing opportunity. (Chewbacca and the firecamp with a roasted 'porg' are not included in this set) Introduction Porgs are native to Ahch-To, and can be found dwelling along the cliffs of the island where Luke Skywalker stayed hidden for many years. They are highly curious creatures where one of them nearly died by looking into the light sabre opening and another one nearly stepped on the activate button. Now they are designed by LEGO designers and being release as a LEGO set. After the official photos were released in the wild, everyone loses their mind in a way that this is a scary and ugly looking creature in LEGO form. That includes me. However, after I got my hands on this set, I seem to start liking it a little. Let me bring you to a journey from the inside of the LEGO Porg. (That sounds scary but it is not, 'technically'..) Overview Name: 75230 PorgYear: 2018Pieces: 811Minifigures: one little porgPrice: £69.99 The Box The front of the box features the Porg with its mouth opened, standing on the mossy rock on Ahch-To island. The back of the box showcased its back and the only play feature in this set. Press on the tail and the mouth will open as well as the wings. This set includes a UCS styled display stand and a minifigure scaled porg. The side of the box has the same box art in a very nice panel. This is at the top of the box, 1:1 picture of the minifigure porg. This porg is exactly the same as in 75200 Ahch-To Island Training with a white half circled tile. There is another variant of porg with grey half circled tile in the infamous 75192 Millennium Falcon - UCS (2nd edition). The Content There are six bags in total with one instruction booklet and one sticker sheet. The booklet is considerably thick with 142 pages in it. The first page gives you the whole idea of what you will get after building each bag. I personally likes to build it bag by bag instead of mixing it all. Searching for parts in a pool of 811 pieces is no fun at all. Haha. The UCS styled sticker. Anyone collects these UCS display stands? You are most welcomed to share a group picture of the stands at the comments area. Found one in my garden! The Build The first bag we will build a rack like this as the skeleton of the Porg. They are interconnected with technic pins and axles. They are designed like this to make the inside as hollow as possible. This fire ladder looking crane is the connector that makes the whole mouth opening mechanism work. It will be at the centre hollow part to ensure the movement is smooth and not obstructed by other bricks. This is how you connect all three parts into a rectangular vertical box. The views of the partially completed build of bag one. Here only the tail will be on the outside of the porg and the upper red round tile is actually the tongue of the Porg. This is when the mouth is open in which you have to push the tail downward to achieve it. When nobody is touching the Porg, it will only show you its kind of cocky face with the mouth closed. After building the mandible and webbed toes, I've finished building bag one. This is the back of the Porg which is the completed build of bag two. Back to bricks and plates instead of pins and axles. I like the use of these modified plates with three claws/rock fingers. It added a lot of details at the back as feathers. Attach it at the back of the Porg. Bag three added some visceral fat and white feathers at the abdomen of the Porg. Very nice use of the curved bricks to create a rounded body in the model of the Porg here. Bag four added more rounded fats and dense feathers at the side of the Porg. Then we move on to bag five which is the wings and bag six, the orange coloured head with its two big round eyes. The combination of orange, white and grey is really movie accurate and looks aesthetically pleasing. You can see in this autopsy of the Porg, the outer details are built separately and attached to the centre skeleton box at five surfaces of the rectangular cube and the feet attached to the bottom. So this is a very useful technique to learn from this set if you want to build any kinds of animal or even a human being with LEGO. Porg: WE ARE NOT FOOD! Final build of the model. It stood up at around 20cm tall and I really don't like the fact that its resting position is mouth closing. You need to do some modification to the build inside the box to keep the mouth open if you feel that it is cuter in that way. At least I do. haha. Looks like someone agitated it. Size comparison with the mini Porg. The model looks so huge! This is a simple UCS style display stand with a jumper for you to put the small porg. Front, rear and side views of the porg. The design is seamless where you hardly see any technic parts buried inside the outer builds. A very nice companion while I work on this review, now that it is here with me, I like it more now as it can be quite a cute desktop display model. A closer look into its teeth. The build is actually quite movie accurate as it can capture the yelling expression amazingly close to the real porgs in the movie. The scale, hmm. Hulkbuster should be larger. Haha Stop moving, you little porg! Just wanted to show how far the wings can stretch but it wouldn't stay. Chewie: GGWWWRGHH... (I'm hungry)... Yummy. Summary review Playability: 3/10 Not really playable but the mechanism is a good building technique to be learnt if you want to build something similar. Design: 8/10 Great design of a rounded fat penguin model with LEGO bricks' square nature. Price: 5/10 Quite pricey considered that only a mini porg is included as minifigure in the set. Overall: 6/10 This is good as a display set and I suppose it looks good if it is placed among the UCS with its display stand especially the BB-8 model. I hope you enjoy reading my simple review and do express your comments below. *Disclaimer: This review is my own opinion as a reviewer and does not represent LEGO official views.
  14. 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.

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

    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: 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.

    Great amazing review @Ecclesiastes! This is such an amazing set! I love these lovely lions and the build reminded me about Fenris the wolf in Hela's set.
