LEGO Star Wars Shadow ARF Trooper Review

This is the latest review I posted on Bricks Review and I can't agree more that this is one cool minifigs, just a bit pricey for me.

This minifig kick start the poison in me to collect more exclusive minifigs, but luckily the expensive Chrome Darth Vader minifigs manage to stop that urge in me for getting more.

Link to the review is right below the picture.

LEGO Star Wars Chrome Darth Vader Review

Is definitely a long time ever since I write my last review, and yesterday and today, I posted a review on Bricks Review. Although is something small, but I believe is a good way to restart this hobby again:

Seems to be an old minifigs that many review has been done before but I just do it for my hobby.

Link to the review is right below the picture.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

s nothing new but it seems like TRU in the states release the pictures early. The minifigs looks good and many fans will collect them for sure. Below is the pictures taken from TRU site:

The above image should be the end product. Good news that Captain America comes with two other minifigs, army builder for the bad perhaps? Somehow, there is a bit of the spoiler from the pictures.

Summer LEGO Star Wars Pictures

Guess this is the last one to update. First, LEGO Star Wars will still continue for the coming 10 years, a good news for fans and I'm looking forward for some of the summer set this year.

#9496 Desert Skiff
#9497 Republic Striker-Class Starfighter
#9498 Saesee Tiin’s Jedi Starfighter
#9499 Gungan Sub
#9500 Sith Fury-Class Interceptor
#9525 Pre Vizla’s Mandalorian Fighter
#9515 The Malevolence
#9516 Jabba’s Palace

This summer we got two sets from expanded universe which both of them comes with new minifigs. Is good to bring back some of the old set like Gungan Sub, a complete Jabba's Palace and Desert Skiff with cool minifigs. All on all, Will look forward for them to be release this August.

LEGO Monster Fighters Pictures

Still not managed to catch up with this week news on toy fair. But yeah, am definitely trying to put all the link to FBTB's Flickr, which contains all the nice pictures. So here's the new theme this year, is sad that the lifespan of Pharaoh's Quest is so short, so do Alien Conquest. Anyway, this Monster Fighters theme brings back all the monsters to LEGO universe once again:

It seems like there is something new to be collect form this theme, first and foremost, of course are the monsters minifigs and secondly, it seems like there are new translucent part which I think is the collectable from this theme. The vehicle for the fighter is definitely not classic in this one.

You get a new olive green plant part here, also two claws from Wolverine, which the werewolf is using them in the picture. Also you get a nice vintage car.

I can tell this is one bad vampire with a big bad hearse. I can see some parts from the minifigs series are been reused, especially the musketeer weapon. Wonder they will change it in the future before the release.

The mad professor, sounds familiar? He is always link to Frankenstein and now another one coming with a scary Frankenstein. I think this set comes with a good number of parts.

You might want to add this train to your City, if you own a LEGO city. The ghost cloth seems to be a new mold too.

The vampire castle seems to be interesting with newly added minifigs which we never seen before and there are even a new hand for the bat guy. The parts definitely can be place in good use for castle fans too.

To see more pictures, just click on the link below the pictures.

Might this be LEGO City #4207?

So here's another picture which is unclear of, whether it is the new LEGO City set #4207 or it just some MOC. Picture below taken from Brickset:

Seems real but at the same time there are MOC building at the back of it. So is kind of hard to say it now whether is an official playset or MOC.

New LEGO Exclusive #10288??

Here's another shot taken from FBTB, but is still unclear of what it is and it might be the rumored LEGO modular, Haunted House or which FBTB thinks might be the set in line with the upcoming Monster Fighters theme.

I can see two ghost floating in front of the house, and time will tell which set is this.

LEGO Star Wars #10225

FBTB is sharing the captured the screen from the video that highlighting the new LEGO Town Hall. Now we get to see the R2-D2 which is said do not appear in the toy fair. Image below taken from FBTB:

Is definitely a no go for me for this R2-D2, since so many great sets gonna be release this year. However, this picture might be important for the fans to start a new discussion on it and share their opinion on it.

LEGO Ninjago 2012 Pictures

I believe they will release more booster pack and spinner set along this year, but I do not know why I am attracted to this year Ninjago set although those ninja gang abandon their dragon, perhaps is the price that tempts me.

I like Lasah Bite Cycle a lot and there is a lot of snake to be collected. There are so much nice sets being release and I'm into a few of them already, real bad news for me I would say since I do not have enough funds. Hopefully able to get those I like only.

More LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Pictures

It no longer something new but is worth sharing somehow. If you would like to see a clearer pictures on the minifig and sets for the upcoming Marvel Super Heroes, just drop Marvel site. Picture below taken from

Putting all the Super Heroes together seems fun and just look at that shot, they looks great isn't it. If you were to hunger for more pictures, please click HERE.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Pictures

A few months more to go until The Avengers come to our cinema. FBTB have supplies us with pictures for the upcoming Marvel Super Heroes playset, and they looks awesome, the minifigs I mean =D.

If the only thing in this set is only Captain America and the bike, I think Marvel license is so expensive and thus this set is expensive too if ti were to be like this.

I like the minifigs and the bike of course, since the helicopter looks a little ugly and kiddy. But we get a new color tone for the bike chasis (wonder if they gonna chrome some part of it some day).

Ironman with a working helmet sounds cool but his head is a little big in my opinion and somehow I think this is still a prototype and it might look better in the final release.

Finally a set which somehow looks better than the smaller one before this. If you have Batcave, you must own a base for the Avengrs as well. It seems a little small but I think it looks great not to mention there is helicarrier in this set as well.

The Quinjet looks good too and I we get Black widow in this set, guess is the only set that include us with Balck Widow. The Quinjet seems to have a few functions too.

I think Marvel line pretty much focus on the minifigs rather than the whole set since in my own opinion, is not much of a nice set from this Marvel line. Also I'm not posting the Hero Factory like action figure here since we already seen them not long ago.

LEGO Lord of the Rings Pictures

Thanks to FBTB we get to see nice pictures of most of the theme, and no doubt, LEGO Lord of the Rings looks impressive and definitely, you get a lot of minifigs in the sets.

New horse, and new minifigs, well at least it seems to have a lot of parts.

The Shelob looks nice, but there are spider in Creator too, so is suppose to be nothing difficult for the designer. Again new minifigs, Gollum (Don't know how to spell, not a hardcore fans for this movie but definitely into the LEGO) which looks scary.

I suppose this is an addition to expand your Helm's Deep since you get a wall and a catapult. It sure have a lot of minifigs and is like battle pack, this set definitely gonna sell like hot cakes. Nice Uruk-Hai minifigs.

Finally Ringwraith, but I wonder if this is a finalize version of it since it seems like reusing body parts from  LEGO Star Wars. Hope this time we get gold coating ring, unlike LEGO PotC which give us brown coins.

This set got some main character in it and well, for those that want to complete the minifigs can either use Bricklink or Ebay, but I think this set should worth the money since there are seven minifigs inside. I suppose this set will look good in picture.

I am not sure if the fans feel disappointed to this set, but is definitely wall which you can further extend it by purchasing more #9471 Uruk-Hai Army playset.

We got five orcs here, and they must be worker that create weapons for the others. There do not seems to have any cheap set with a lot of minifigs and the cheapest one is #9471 Uruk-Hai Army at USD29.99 that comes with four orcs and two human.

I suppose this year really goes hard on our wallet, a lot of nice sets coming and limited resources. But this theme sure looks good.

New York Toy Fair LEGO Super Heroes Exclusive

Last year SDCC we have exclusive Green Lantern and Batman release, and Superman in New York Fair. In this year New york Toy Fair, we get Ironman and Captain America as the exclusive minifigs. Picture below taken from FBTB:

Both of the minifigs looks great, and this Ironman sure is different form the one in playset. But all look good after all. Now Batman and Green Lantern fetch a high price already, this no doubt is selling at a crazy price too.

New York Toy Fair LEGO Star Wars Exclusive

My router spoilt since yesterday and it seems like I left out a lot of things, especially the updates on New York toy Fair where we get to see a lot of pictures of upcoming set. So this year exclusive Star Wars minifigs is Darth Maul, I guess due to the release of Episode I 3D.

Darth Maul

Seems like the lightsaber hilt is grey in color, is TLG changing back the hilt to grey? Anyway, this one is hell of an exclusive torso.

Finally we see the finalize minifigs and also the set for the upcoming #9516 Jabba's Palace which I think it has a lot of improvement. Below is a picture taken from FBTB:

#9516 Jabba's Palace

The sets seems to have a lot of playability and most importantly, Han Solo carbonite. you might want to surf some video that explain on the playability on this set. You can find the video in Eurobricks.
