    LOTR & The Hobbit 2012

    I saw the LotR sets at Toys XL and Bart Smit in The Netherlands today. Just thought the Dutch LEGO fans might want to know that they're finally out here.

    Dialogue in film is boring now? What, do you only watch silent movies?

    Twin-Pod Cloud Car Review

    I did a review about this set too. It's possible to put the walkie-talkie inside the compartment. You just have to put it under the beam, not on top of it. http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=27089

    REVIEW: 7150 TIE Fighter & Y-wing

    Yeah, it's possible. But it would be a bit dumb of Vader to store his beloved lightsaber in an Y-Wing, wouldn't it? My apologies for the Photobucket-thing. The pictures should be up again on Wednesday.

    REVIEW: 7150 TIE Fighter & Y-wing

    Thanks No idea why it's called R5-D4. I hadn't even noticed I put Luke in the cockpit. I made the pictures for this set together with the pictures for #7140: X-wing Fighter (review is coming soon) and must have put him in accidentally
  8. 7150 TIE Fighter & Y-wing Name: TIE Fighter & Y-wing Theme: Star Wars Episode IV Set Number: 7150 Pieces: 407 Year released: 1999 Minifigures: 3 Price: Can't remember, but $50.00 according to Peeron This is one of my favourite OT sets. Love both the ships and and the figs. I don't have the other Y-Wing (#7658: Y-wing Starfighter) or #8017: Darth Vader's TIE Fighter so I can't compare this set to those two (they look good though). Let's start with the instruction manual. Back. The minifig pages. And a random page. At the end of the manual there's a short comic. The minifigs in this set are great: Darth Vader, a Y-Wing Pilot and an R5-D4 Astromech Droid. This was the first set in which Darth Vader appeared and also the first one I got. I know have a couple of him. His cape is a bit tattered and folded because he has been sitting in his TIE for almost ten years now (!). Without his helmet. The Y-Wing Pilot is also a nice fig. Great torso and I like his face His helmet is also pretty awesome (good pic here: http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/x164px1). The last fig is an R5-D4 Astromech Droid. He also appeared in a couple of other sets and I own three of him. The one thing I hate about this set is that it's called 'TIE Fighter & Y-wing'. It's clearly not a TIE Fighter, but the TIE Advanced x1 (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/TIE_Advanced_x1). Oh well. Vader presents his ship. A look at the back. And from the top... ...and bottom. The 'wings' are connected by two pins. You can change the wings from this... ...to this. A close-up of the printed piece with the Imperial sign on it (it's on both wings). The same piece is also on the top of the cockpit. The cockpit opens up like this. A look inside. Darth Vader is ready to crush some Rebels. There's not really any place for his lightsaber so I just placed it next to him. The next ship is the Y-Wing. Top and bottom. Let's have a look at the cockpit. It has a big gun on top which can swing in all directions. The inside of the cockpit. A look from the other side. The slope brick with the trench pattern is also available in a couple of other Star Wars sets. Here is where you can place R5-D4. The back can open up like this. There's nothing to put in though. At the left and right side are two printed pieces. In the middle of the ship is a place to store a container box. The door with the Rebel sign on it is a pretty rare piece. A look at the engines of the Y-Wing. They are connected by two pins each. The landing gear which can be removed. Luke is lying comfortably inside his cosy little cockpit. Yes, Luke. I put him in accidentally. So don't look for him because he is not included in this set And of course R5-D4! And to wrap things up, a look at the complete set. Price: 9/10 - Pretty cheap in my opinion for two ships. Parts: 8/10 - Lots of useful pieces and a couple of rare ones. Playability: 9/10 - Two ships that can 'battle' with each other so that's good Minifigs: 9/10 - All really good. Final: 9/10 - Awesome set. Great ships and figs and doesn't cost that much (at least back in the day ).

    REVIEW: 7184 Trade Federation MTT

    Thanks It looks stupid but at least you don't see it when the MTT is closed. It's better than hearing the Battle Droid going through the whole cockpit when the MTT is in motion

    REVIEW: 4480 Jabba's Palace

    Thanks everyone! Here you go

    REVIEW: 4480 Jabba's Palace

    4480: Jabba's Palace Name: Jabba's Palace Theme: Star Wars Episode VI Set Number: 4480 Pieces: 234 Year released: 2003 Minifigures: 6 Price: Can't remember, but $30.00 according to Peeron For me, this is a set I played with a lot when I was younger. Lots of awesome minifigs and the palace is good enough. Would love to see another version in the future. Let's start things off with the instruction manual. Front... ...and back. The minifig pages. A random page. And here's a pic of the set with #4475 Jabba's Message and #4476 Jabba's Prize. There are six minifigures included in this set. They are, from left to right: Leia, a B'omarr Monk, a GNK power droid, Jabba the Hutt, EV-9D9 and Luke Skywalker. I'll start with the droids. Here's the B'omarr Monk (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Image:Bomarr_monk_btm.jpg). I found these things very creepy when I first watched "Star Wars episode VI: Return of the Jedi" many, many years ago. LEGO has captured it well in my opinion. It's funny that its legs are build out of four Katana swords. Next is the GNK power droid, also known as 'gonk droid' (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Gonk_Droid). The GNK power droid is also a handy place to store Luke's hairpiece when he is using his hood EV-9D9 (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/EV-9D9). Now the other three figs. Here we have Luke Skywalker. Slave girl Leia. Here she is with her flesh twin from #6210 Jabba's Sail Barge. Last but not least, the king of this set: Jabba! It's the same mold as Jabba from set #6210 Jabba's Sail Barge Not really a minifig, but there's also a little frog in the set Now we can enter Jabba's Palace. The front and back. And the left and right side. At the front of the palace there's a gate than can open up. When you remove the handle on top of the gate you can open up the palace. In the left side you will find EV-9D9's workplace. In the right side you will find... absolutely nothing! Another look. Close-up of one of the stairs. On the top floor is where you can place Jabba and Leia. Jabba's dinner. Poor little frog. In front of Jabba you will find a trapdoor. I had to replace the original black rubber bands because both of them had broken. By pushing/pulling Jabba's 'throne' back the trapdoor will open up. A look from inside. It's also possible to remove Jabba and Leia with a piece of the palace. A look a the whole palace with the minifigs. If you have sets #4475 Jabba's Message and/or #4476 Jabba's Prize you can attach them to Jabba's Palace. Set #4475 Jabba's Message attaches to the right side. And #4476 Jabba's Prize to the left side. A look at the whole palace. Price: 8/10 - Pretty cheap for a bunch of minifigs and a good palace. Parts: 7/10 - Alright. Not really any special pieces. Playability: 8/10 - Lots of features and even more playability when you add #4475 Jabba's Message and #4476 Jabba's Prize. Minifigs: 9/10 - All of them are great in my opinion, especially Jabba and Leia. I would've loved to have seen a LEGO Rancor though. Final: 8/10 - The minifigs make this set but the palace isn't bad. It doesn't really look like the one from the movie, but it has a lot of features.

    REVIEW: 7184 Trade Federation MTT

    Hey, I'm also from the Netherlands I don't understand why I put the seat that way. It's clearly the other way around in the instructions. I'll make some new photos soon and add them to the review. Thanks for pointing it out!

    REVIEW: 7184 Trade Federation MTT

    Well, the one from the MTT fits into the Battle Droid Carrier. The one from the Battle Droid Carrier doesn't fit into the MTT because of the four grey antennas on top of it.
