For the few people who don't know what this set is about, it is The Tumbler from the Batman Dark Knight Trilogy. Originally a military prototype vehicle, Bruce Wayne repurposed it for Batman's use. But does it come in LEGO?
It's been a while since I got to play with the Mindstorms set :( The Wack3m model (designed by Martyn Boogaarts) is one of 12 community models that were provided with the bundled software and the first one I've built. This is a whack-a-mole type game where your reaction speeds are tested by hitting one of three disks as they popup randomly.
This polybag is a mini model of the recent 10242 Mini Cooper set which I unfortunately don't have for comparison. So it's a Mini Mini Cooper I guess :)
The 10244 Fairground Mixer is labelled as an Expert Creator set. It has lots of different models, a dozen minifigs, and lots of moving parts which can be optionally motorised. The whole thing can be packed up for transportation on a couple of trucks, making it pretty different to the standard Creator builds which are usually quite static.
Hello it is me again. If you don't remember me. I was the guy who did the Emmet's Contructo-Mech review some days ago. So without further talking lets get started :-)
When I first saw this set, I knew I must have it! If you've seen The LEGO Movie, you'll recognise it as the spaceship that Benny (the 1980-something spaceman) finally got to build towards the end of the movie. How does it compare with my fond memories of the Classic Space sets I grew up with?
Before we start building one of the second wave of LEGO Movie sets. I want to thank Nathan to give me the opportunity to do my first review here. For some reason still unknown to me I'm allowed to step out of the shadow of my inventory-admin-cave and get rich and famous.
The Ghostbusters Ecto 1 is the first of the newly branded 'LEGO Ideas' sets to be released. The original Cuusoo model was submitted by Brent Waller in March 2013 and quickly reached 10,000 supporters by August 2013. The LEGO Cuusoo team announced the sixth Cuusoo set would be the Ecto 1 in January 2014, and will be released on June 1st. The Ghostbusters HQ building was part of the original Cuusoo submission but not part of the released set, however Brent has made the instructions for building it available for download.
This is the last of the first wave of LEGO Movie sets that I am reviewing and happens to be the only one I built after watching the movie, thanks to some very backwards release dates in Australia.
