Review: 41196 The Elvenstar Tree Bat Attack

Posted by ,

Elves has been one of my favourite themes since its first year. Sadly enough it looks like this year will be its last (if the fact that no Elves sets are featured in the winter catalogues are any indication). So it was with more than a bit of wistfulness that I started building 41196 The Elvenstar Tree Bat Attack. It's the largest Elves set this year. It's also one of the best sets I've built this year. Read on to learn all the reasons I love this set.

Review: 21039 Shanghai

Posted by ,

The popular Skyline subtheme includes some tremendous sets, the most impressive of which are often those that blend modern architecture with historical structures. Shanghai is definitely among the most architecturally diverse cities in the world and therefore seems ideally suited to this series.

21039 Shanghai captures that diverse range of architectural styles perfectly, featuring not only the ancient Longhua Temple but also buildings that were completed during the colonial and modern eras. I think the model looks superb in official images so have high expectations for this Skyline set, especially since it contains 597 pieces and costs £54.99 or $59.99, surpassing the other products from the subtheme in both size and price.
