71026: LEGO DC Super Heroes Minifigures Mini Review

The latest series of LEGO® Minifigures seems to have been revealed and launched without any fanfare whatsoever. In fact despite their release on January 1st, LEGO have only just decided to promote them on their social media channels. They also took their time arriving in stores, here in the UK they have only just started to be readily available from all the usual places. This could be because they have increased in price or the fact...

31099: LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Propeller Plane Set Review

Just like any of the LEGO® Creator 3-in-1 sets I’ve reviewed over the last couple of weeks, the Propeller Plane is a similar type of set to those featured in past years. This 2020 version can be built into a trio of airbourne crafts including the lead model, which is a Propeller Plane, along with alternate builds of a Helicopter with landing pad and a Jet Fighter plane. But can a set which is similar to previous ones be worth...

31102: LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Fire Dragon Review

Despite the large amount of rebuildable vehicles and buildings featured in the LEGO® Creator 3-in-1 sets, every so often a creature is thrown into the mix. For the latest selection of sets that creature is a fire breathing dragon, which can be rebuilt into a Saber-toothed Tiger or a Scorpion. How does an organic creation fair against the various cars, planes and shops featured in the new 2020 range? Let’s take a look at all...

41401: Stephanie’s Play Cube Review

LEGO® Friends isn’t a theme which makes up much of my LEGO collection. But every so often there is a set which catches my eye. As 2020 begins we are treated to a number of new play functions and elements, which is something I like to take a closer look at. One of those new elements is the collectible LEGO Friends Play Cube, a series of enclosed mini playsets. These use a new clam shell type box to house a small scene based on...

70431: The Lighthouse Of Darkness Set Review

The first wave of LEGO® Hidden Side sets gave us a nice mix of vehicles and location from the costal town of Newbury. Something which has continued with the latest sets, released just after Christmas. One of the largest of those new sets is spooky Lighthouse from the Grimsmouth Cove. The Lighthouse has long been the shining beacon to welcome seafaring folk into Newbury. But this light topped tower isn’t all what it seems and...

The LEGO Birthday Book Review

As it’s my birthday and more importantly a chance to eat cake, it’s the perfect time to check out the LEGO® Birthday Book from Centum and Ameet. The book has been available for a while, but has only started to appear here in the UK. As the name suggests, the book is themed around birthday celebrations and includes a Minifigure, stickers and a rather neat Happy Birthday banner. So let’s blow out the candles and take a...
