42079: Heavy Duty Forklift Technic Set Review

For the next of our reviews of the new LEGO® Technic™ summer releases, I’m taking a look at the smallest of the new sets, 42079: Heavy Duty Forklift. Construction machines make up a big part of the Technic line. Their instantly recognisable look and ability to allow for various functional actions, make them a decent fit for the theme. Just like LEGO system sets, new pieces can allow for new takes on vehicles, which have...

42080: Forest Machine Technic Set Review

One of the first LEGO® Technic I ever owned was the Pneumatic Excavator. Released back in 1992 I would of been just 9 years old. The set used the old Technic build system, but despite the age gap with the set I’m reviewing today, they share some similarities. The set from back in 90s used an interesting method to create movement. Long before Power Functions the set shuns fancy motors and batteries for the power of air. Fast...

Green Lantern Jessica Cruz Minifigure Review

Earlier this month a brand new original LEGO® mini-movie, Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis was released and special editions of the Blu-ray contains an exclusive new minifigure of Jessica Cruz. Despite the DC Universe fuelling a number of LEGO sets and minifigures over the years, the Green Lantern and the Green Lantern Corp have been vastly under represented. In fact to date there has only been a single set released featuring Green Lantern....

70658: Oni Titan LEGO NINJAGO Set Review

40314: Dr. Fox Magnifying Machine Review

The arrival of the new LEGO® Movie spin-off theme, Unikitty! has been met with equal measures of excitement and apathy. The sets are based on the animated TV series, which is based on characters from The LEGO Movie. The main draw being the star of the show Princess Unikitty, but she doesn’t inhabit the Unikingdom alone. Among the crazy cast of characters is science loving Dr. Fox. Who just happens to be the focus of the...

LEGO NINJAGO & City 1001 Sticker Books Review

To round off our week of reviews of the new LEGO® titles from Centum Books, we take a look at the final two recently published books – the LEGO NINJAGO and the LEGO City 1001 Sticker Books. But why both books in a single review I hear you ask, well the similar nature of each book would make two separate reviews a little redundant. So it make sense to combine them into a single analysis. Although they are quite similar, both...
