LEGO Ideas 10K Club interview with FlagsNZ

Posted by ,

One of the latest inductees into the LEGO Ideas 10k Club is Brickset's very own staff editor David Wardle (FlagzNZ), whose excellent Queen Victoria Cruise Ship project achieved 10,000 supporters in December last year.

While we wait patiently for the results of the third 2018 Ideas review, in which the ship is battling it out with four other projects, you can read more about David, the ship, and his project on the Ideas blog where he is the latest subject of a 10k club interview there.

Hopefully we will learn the results of the review soon: last year they were announced at the end of May and it's entirely possible that the announcement will be made during the Fan Media days this week.

As I've said before, as a regular cruiser, I'd buy the set in a heartbeat. Best of luck David!

Review: 75259 Snowspeeder - 20th Anniversary Edition

Snowspeeders have provided inspiration for an enormous selection of LEGO Star Wars sets and it seems appropriate that another rendition has been released for the anniversary range. 75259 Snowspeeder - 20th Anniversary Edition looks a lot like past models in official images, featuring numerous familiar design components.

Nevertheless, earlier Snowspeeders have been impressive so I understand why many features remain intact on this example. Furthermore, this set contains a superb P-Tower weapon emplacement and an exclusive Lando Calrissian minifigure, taking inspiration from his original appearance in 10123 Cloud City during 2003.

60234 is one of two City People Packs that are being released this year. These popular sets provide a great way to acquire minifigures to populate your city, albeit for a significant outlay.

Previous packs have contained 15 figures. This one contains one fewer but the price has remained the same: £34.99 in the UK and probably $39.99 when released in the USA.

Nevertheless, it contains some lovely figures and great new parts.
