Quick Update on Malaysia 2010 LEGO Collectors' Exhibition

Here's a quick update on the Malaysia 2010 LEGO Collectors' Exhibition and is more like a shopping news for Toy Story fans during the event.

For Toy Story lover and collector, you will be eligible to purchase a Toy Story magnet and a Toy Story keychain, or two Toy Story magnets, or two Toy Story keychain with any amount of LEGO Toy Story purchased. Yes, no minimum purchase is needed to get these keychains and/or magnet as long as it is LEGO Toy Story that you purchased.

The magnet set will cost RM69.90 each which include three minifigs in it (from what I see from other's review, it is said that the quality has improved) while the the keychain cost RM19.90 each (the price is quite good if we compare with neighboring country after added implicit cost) and you have three choices to choose from (see pic below) too bad there is no Jessie.

Each of them are (again) said to be very very limited in quantity, and I suppose only early bird have the opportunity to own them. They are exclusive item anyway.

So again, this news is more for Toy Story fans and their shopping tips. ^^

LEGO MOC Batmobile

After I blog about the Tumbler from Max Yang'c creation, I can't resist for not blogging about the Batmobile which again I think is cool. Below are a picture taken from his Flickr gallery:

Seems pretty cool, but what's nice about this thing is that, it has slide open windscreen, hidden machine guns on both side and cast-off-able side when passing through narrow street.

For more pictures of this machine, please visit:
Artifex creation Flickr gallery and comic

He does post up his creation for sale in e-bay for a reasonable price for his hard work.

LEGO Prince of Persia MOC, Scorpion Fort

I'm pretty impressed with Eurobricks member Svelte especially his recent MOC on Prince of Persia. Below are pictures taken from Eurobricks:

If I'm not mistaken there's a MOC competition for LEGO Prince of Persia in Eurobricks. But anyway, the design of the fort looks very good plus there is something behind that you would like to find it yourself HERE.

LEGO Kingdoms #7950 Knight's Showdown Review

TheBrickster also made a review on the small playset of LEGO Kingdoms too. Below is the picture taken from the Eurobricks:

Is a real simple set with not much playability, but I think will be a set suitable for army building since the battle pack is said to be low in quality. To read the full review, please visit HERE.

Found this cool Batman Tumble MOC in Facebook. I think this guy is a fans of Batman, all I see for now in his page is Batman MOC like Batmobile, Batpod and Joker Truck. Below are the pictures of Max Yang's creation:

Malaysia 2010 LEGO Collectors' Exhibition Update

For fellow LEGO fans of Malaysia, here's an update about the Malaysia 2010 LEGO Collectors' Exhibition event that I mention not long ago.

I made a mistake in my previous post though, I was told today there will be approximately 200 sets or more will be on display in the event. They will have:

-Every single set from Prince of Persia.

-Some Toy Story playset.

-Every single playset from Castle Fantasy Era including the chess set.

-For Star Wars, you can see most of the UCS and old Technic set while the playset is quite limited in number.

-Architecture theme will be on display too which all of the six set will be there.

-As mention before, there will be modular house on display too except for Grand Emporium which is not yet release here.

I think is best you visit this link to look at the set which will be put on display.

ToysRUs will sell some set in the event but there is no single words about discount, maybe you guys would like to check it there by yourself.

Also there will be a place selling #8683 Collectable Minifigure too which I was told the supply is pretty much limited. Once you missed the chance, it will be very hard for you to get here. It will be sold at RM9.90 per minifig pack (not per box), so if you about to try your luck and get all 16 of them, remember to bring a lot of money there.

Remember, One Utama Shopping Complex (New Wing), Kuala Lumpur on 1st June until 7th June 2010. Be sure to make it there for the event.

LEGO Space Police #5985 Space Police Central Review

Eurobricks have got this set review posted up in their forum. Below are a picture taken from Eurobricks:

Surpisingly, this set turns out to be good, maybe the only thing people will be unhappy about is the transport that can't fully fit inside the parking bay.

The event will be held at One Utama Shopping Complex (New Wing), Kuala Lumpur on 1st June until 7th June 2010.

For now I do not have much info about the event yet, but there will approximately more than 100 LEGO sets will be on display. Also, exclusive LEGO modular house like Green Grocer, largest Star Wars set like UCS Millenium Falcon, Death Star and Death Star II just to name a few, will be on display during the event.

So you might be wondering which theme will be there and what's not, below are the theme that will be on display:
1. Star Wars
2. Toy Story
3. Prince of Persia
2. Exclusive sets
3. City (new and vintage)
4. Castle (new and vintage, army)

So for the fans of above theme make sure you be there and that's not all, there are also vignettes, cube dudes and MOC (My Own Creation) too. We get too how creative we are in MOC. =P There is a minifigure army on display too.

I guess is a good idea to bring your child to a place like this during this school holiday season, where they can actually enjoy seeing those toys and a pieces of good news to the parents is that no fee are needed, yes it is FREE.

Guess unlucky dude like me have to wait for other time when I have more fund to support me for travelling. T.T
