Review: 70618 Destiny's Bounty

Posted by ,
View image at flickr

The LEGO NINJAGO Movie range seems to have captured the attention of almost everyone, even those who have expressed little previous interest in NINJAGO. 70618 Destiny's Bounty is perhaps the foremost motivating factor for this trend as more fantastical aspects of the theme have been omitted in favour of realistic design features and an exceptional level of detail which is in evidence throughout the entire model.

Furthermore, the set contains 2295 pieces and is priced at just £109.99 or $159.99 so appears to offer tremendous value for money! Most of The LEGO NINJAGO Movie sets are similarly reasonably priced but this is a particularly good example. I therefore have very high expectations for the set and it could prove to be one of the best of 2017, although there is a great deal of competition for such an accolade this year.

Beasts from Bricks: Amazing LEGO Designs for Animals from Around the World

Beasts from Bricks: Amazing LEGO Designs for Animals from Around the World

©2017 LEGO Group

If you like your brick-built animals, as I do, then this is a book for you. It's sort of a sequel to last year's Birds from Bricks, by Thomas Poulsom, but this one is authored by Ekow Nimako who resides in Toronto.

The 144-page softback book contains 15 step-by-step instructions for building a variety of animals from around the world.

Review: 40264 Build My Heartlake City Accessory Kit

The Captain reviewed 40170 Build My City Accessory Set earlier this month. Today we'll take a look at 40264 Build My Heartlake City Accessory Set. Like the City accessory set, there are no minidolls with this set and it consists of a series of smaller builds. The general scene is set in a park, so to me it's a little reminiscent of a smaller version of last year's City Fun in the Park set. Will this be a promising little pack like the City set?

5004936 Iconic Cave is currently free with purchases over £25/30€/$50 at shop.LEGO.com.

It's the third minifig-in-a-box set, following last year's 5004468 Iconic Easter Minifigure and 5005156 Gingerbread Man.

This one, however, contains two minifigs, both of which are unique to it, rather than being straight copies of collectable minifigures.

Review: DC Super Heroes Build Your Own Adventure

Dorling Kindersley has been publishing books containing at least one minifigure alongside a small vehicle since 2010 and DC Super Heroes Build Your Own Adventure is the most recent addition to the range. It costs £17.99 or $24.99 but has already been discounted in certain locations just a couple of weeks after release.

I have been looking forward to purchasing the book based purely on the inclusion of an exclusive John Stewart Green Lantern minifigure and I imagine most LEGO Super Heroes collectors will be drawn to it for the same reason.

Review: 30497 First Order Heavy Assault Walker

Posted by ,
View image at flickr

A selection of sets based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be available from the 1st of September but 30497 First Order Heavy Assault Walker has been released slightly early in a few Canadian Wal-Mart stores. This 54-piece model depicts the AT-M6, a new kind of attack walker deployed by the First Order which first appeared in the teaser trailer for the upcoming film.

A larger version of the AT-M6 is also among the first wave of Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets and several other companies are producing toys based on the vehicle. It therefore seems likely that it will occupy a significant role in the movie, presumably in a pivotal action scene set on the mineral-rich planet of Crait.
