Review: 21311 Voltron

21311 Voltron was revealed a few weeks ago after what must be the longest gestational period of any LEGO Ideas set.

It's the biggest mech LEGO has ever made and its sheer size, weight and transformation complexity presented unique challenges to the designers that took time to overcome, which I suspect was the cause of much of the delay.

Was it worth the wait?

Experienced LEGO collectors will be aware that displaying sets can be difficult, especially where larger models are concerned. 75192 Millennium Falcon presents a particular challenge, due not only to its enormous size but also its awkward shape which occupies a great deal of room.

Several different display solutions have been presented since the set was released last year, ranging from installing the model in a coffee table to building your own stand using Technic. However, acrylic display stands are available as well and Wicked Brick, the manufacturer of one such stand, has kindly sent Brickset a sample so that we can publish a review for you.

Review: 75950 Aragog's Lair

LEGO has returned to the Wizarding World for 2018, producing two sets based upon Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them along with five from the Harry Potter movies. 75950 Aragog's Lair is the cheapest of these, costing £12.99 or $14.99, but contains 157 pieces which is more than 75951 Grindelwald's Escape.

This set therefore seems to offer brilliant value and the two minifigures are appealing, only otherwise appearing in 75955 Hogwarts Express. Furthermore, a new version of Aragog is included and he looks magnificent, as indeed do the smaller spiders which have not been moulded in black or medium nougat before.
