There is certainly something a little Cuckoo about this set. It is completely different to all the other 1H14 Movie sets, and I have absolutely no idea what it is supposed to be about.
This set at first looked a little dull and boring to me, but I don't think the photos on the box do it justice. It contains an odd looking railway platform, an awesome looking cop car, a couple of minifigs and a couple of crocodiles. Not exactly the sort of things you tend to see together!
This medium sized set features the MetalBeard Robo-Pirate dueling with the Micro Manager evil robot. Both of these figures have some great features and provide excellent playability as you will see below.
The December Alternate Build Competition is over and it's time to find the winner!
We have an impressive 40 MOCs submitted with 33 of them in the running for the $100 prize. Of the five possible sets to choose from, the entries are spread pretty evenly:
The latest addition to the Architecture series is the Eiffel Tower. I was fortunate to get an early copy from the LEGO Community Team. If you read my previous review on the Marina Bay Sands Hotel Architecture set, you will know that it didn't really hold much interest for me. Read on to see how the Eiffel Tower set fairs.
Of the thirteen LEGO Movie Sets to choose from, I picked this one to build first. It's a pink Ice Cream Truck that turns into a flying death machine! As if I wouldn't!
The first half of 2014 sets in the new LEGO Movie theme have arrived. Simply put, they look amazing! There are 13 of them (!), with four of them having 2-in-1 builds. So I think this will keep me busy reviewing for quite a while!
