80023: Monkie Kid’s Team Dronecopter Set Review

The second largest of the new LEGO® Monkie Kid sets just so happens to be the first of them to be revealed late last year. Since then the set has been given a name change, but still remains an interesting addition to Monkie Kid’s line-up of vehicular weaponry. Although it’s not really a helicopter or a drone, it is a feature-packed build, which also includes the largest number of characters of any Monkie Kid set. The...

Little did I know that one of the smaller sets would turn out to be a great build and one of my favourite of the new sets. The legend of the Monkey King is filled with many...

80024: The Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain Set Review

In the world’s before Monkey, primal chaos reigned. The four worlds formed again and yet again.

80022: Spider Queen’s Arachnoid Base Set Review

One Christmas some distance family members came over from the US, where they bought me some He-Man goodies not yet available in the UK. One of those toys was a huge spider, called Spydor which was ridden by Skeletor. It...
