LEGO Star Wars Exclusive Han Solo Minifigs

So this year exclusive minifigs for Star Wars theme on the 4th of May will be Han Solo in Hoth outfit. This might blends well with the Tauntaun figure that you have.

Not sure how much this minifigs can worth. But exclusive items are always expensive. Let's wait and see when this is released. But somehow, some one already own it.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes #76006 Iron Man: Extremis Sea Port Battle Review

Here's another update, which is the review on  #76006 Iron Man: Extremis Sea Port Battle from Bricks Review. The review is posted a couple of days ago too. Picture below are taken from Bricks Review:


The minifigs in this set are just awesome and a lot are looking for them, both, maybe the set as well. I have gotten the set as well and it turns out to be a great set. The ship design are good too although not much of a playability, but how can we resist those Iron Man and War Machine minifigs that comes in this set.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes #76008 Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown Review

A couple of old news to share, the review of Ironman 3 playset which are not officially release in the local market is up in Bricks Review. Below is the image taken from Bricks Review:


A lot have asked me whether the Iron Man in this set are the same with the one with in Malibu Mansion Attack and my answer is no. If you guys would like to have all the Iron Man minifigs, just grab this one and the Sea Port battle, that pretty much help you out with all the armor that are ever released by LEGO.

LEGO Star Wars #75001 Republic Troopers vs. Sith Troopers Review

Battle pack usually comes in pair, and to make it a little more complete it, this review was posted yesterday after the #75000 Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas playset. Picture below is taken from Bricks Review:


The minifigs looks great but the number of parts greatly reduced after two extra minifigs were added into the playset. I think it is fair enough, since the minifigs have much more value than the parts. So there is the pros and cons I think.

LEGO Star Wars #75000 Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas Review

Here's a review posted yesterday on Bricks Review. Although the set has been released for a period of time, but it just released here not long ago, maybe a month ago. So for those that are still considering on this set, get it quick, looking at the inflation, this set is nicely priced.


Although the set do not comes with a lot of minifigs but it does comes with a lot of parts and I do see some uncommon one in here attached to the Droideka. Worth the money for those that are looking for parts, but is a poor set to build your army in my opinion.

LEGO The Lone Ranger #79108 Stagecoach Escape Review

Here's another review put up today by Brickset, which we all do not want to miss since it is a very good source to get the feedback about the set before we decided or prioritize which set to go first. Picture below is taken from Brickset:

79108 Everything !

Again, my focus is on the minifigs and Red Harrington is an awesome figs, while the other bad guy is a little normal, nothing much new since we have bandit in Series 6. The stagecoach looks nice too and this set might be one of  the set that will sell wells too, just my speculation.

Summer LEGO Galaxy Squad Images

Grogall has uploaded hi-res images on the upcoming Galaxy Squad set on Brickshelf, but it seems like the folder is not publish yet this morning. Anyway, below are the images that I manage to get from Eurobricks:

#70706 Crater Creeper

#70707 CLS-89 Eradicator Mech 

#70708 Hive Crawler

#70709 Galactic Titan

I think the last two sets again looks very good, is so hard to resist the temptation.  Looking at the brick-built bug do looks great too. Really cannot wait for them to be released. Hopefully, by then I already have enough money to buy them.

LEGO The Lone Ranger #79109 Colby City Showdown Review

This is the latest review from Brickset on LEGO The Lone Ranger,  #79109 Colby City Showdown which is posted a few days ago. Now that this is the theme is reviving the western them, I hope the fans would like them as much as the previous western theme.

79109 Colby City Showdown

The building is more like a screening set to me (only decorated on the front while the back is empty) but usually they are very useful to get good pictures, if you enjoy photo shooting your toys. The playability seems fine and it comes with a number of them. This set leaves you pretty much space to improves on it as well, if you were to make fully covered at the back as well.

LEGO The Lone Ranger #79110 Silver Mine Shootout Review

Brickset is putting up a lot of review on The Lone Ranger theme. Here's one of the review that is being separated in two parts, where one of it are for the minifigs and the other one for the mine. Picture below taken from Brickset:

79110 Silver Mine Shootout

I feel like getting one of this set after reading the review. The set comes with good minifigs and a good construction experience, after looking at the completed silver mine. The set also comes with several playability which makes it even more worth buying and meeting kids demand.

LEGO Minifigures Series 10 Released

No idea how they manage to get Collectable Minifigure Series 10 in Hungary but they sure come at us fast. I have not even completed my Series 8 and Series 9 minifigure collection but now here comes the 10.

LEGO 71001 LEGO 71001

The above image was from kockamania's Flickr photostream. Currently I find that the minifigs are not as interesting as Series 9, but time will tells. I might just like a number of them when they are officially release just like Series 9.

LEGO Lone Ranger #79107 Comanche Camp Review

I have a few of dream western set that I was not able to own back then and one of the set are the red indian campa that was released back then. However, I believe this is the time for me to own a set although I think previously the teepee is made from cloth while now are made from plastic. Below is a picture taken from Brickset review:

79107 Lone Ranger Comanche Camp

Well Is good to see the lone gone and out of production back in LEGO and also the camp that was once upon a time in my wishlist. The new headgear looks pretty neat too, and we have a new crow piece. This is one interesting set to be owned and the camp is all that attracts me right now.

LEGO Lone Ranger #79106 Cavalry Builder Set Review

The new theme is coming in April while the movie I think is somewhere later this year. Anyway, Brickset manage to get the set early to made review, and below are the picture taken from the review:

79106 Lone Ranger Cavalry Builder Set

A battle pack to build your army seems very useful. Not only you have four minifigs but it do comes with a horse too. The set seems not to come with much pieces, but they pretty much made up with all the minifigs that provided in this set plus the accessories. On a side note, for those looking for cannon to fit inside your Black Pearl or Queen Anne Revenge, now is the time.

LEGO Star Wars The empire Strikes Out Exclusive Darth Vader Minifig Pictures

Now that TLG manage to find their uniqueness again, we collectors are sure in trouble. There are a lot of exclusive been release ever since and they come with books, games and even movies or cartoon. Now here's two pictures that are taken from Brickset:

The Empire Strikes out exclusive Darth Vader minifig The Empire Strikes out exclusive Darth Vader minifig

The only thing different to me are just the torso print that are added with an additional medal print on it. Just like what Huw from Brickset said, the quality is a little bad ( I think that is what he means with Oriental origin), but completest are just completest.

LEGO The Hobbit Exclusive Bilbo Baggins from DVD / Blu-ray

There are already pictures of Bilbo Baggins minifigs that comes with The Hobbit blu-ray or DVD uploaded on Brickset today. I have not collected any of The Hobbit set yet and I suppose this minifigs will hot affect me much. Below picture are from Brickset:

Bilbo Baggins Bilbo Baggins

Guess I'm still safe at the moment, but for those that loves this theme a lot might be picking up one copy of this DVD? Maybe for those that only interested with the movies might sell them off at a pretty good price, but at the same time, I am wondering if this will be the catalyst that bring many adult back into the LEGO world. The Shell promo is a success here in Malaysia.

LEGO The Hobbit #79002 Attack of the Wargs Review

I enjoy reading those review that comes with a nicely captured photos of the LEGO set that they review, no matter how old the set was. Below here, is one of the cool picture from FBTB:

3. Overview

The amount of minifigs that came with the set are pretty good plus the 2 new wargs which some fans are expecting them so much, not to mention they looks pretty good. The design of the tree and the rock are pretty interesting too if you do not mind the playability. The rocks especially might be very useful for you to decorate the your city especially the forest.

LEGO Lone Ranger Hi-res Picture

Frankly speaking, I have no knowledge about this Lone Ranger movie, until people says that there are in LEGO. Here comes the hi-res pictures of the upcoming LEGO Lone Ranger theme on Brickshelf. We all knows, is the user grogall that found this great images for us.

#79106 Cavalry Builder Set

Here's one of the image taken from grogall's folder. But you can definitely view the whole album HERE. With the hi-rs pictures being found, you can now check on the parts that you are getting from the dream set of yours. I suppose we are expecting the playset to be release soon too?

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes #76007 Iron Man: Malibu Mansion Attack Review

The scene where Mandarin attack Tony Stark mansion with his helicopter were shown in the trailer and this must be pretty much an important scene and so,  LEGO made a playset of this scene. Below is a picture taken from TBB:

76007 Malibu Mansion Attack

The mansion is really small I would say, is just a small part of it, however there is a lot of translucent parts which you can hardly find in playset which might be useful, if you were to expand your own Malibu Mansion. On top of that, this set comes with a number of extra parts, small and big pieces (Eurobricks version of review, HERE).

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes #76006 Ironman: Extremis Sea Port Battle Review

Here's another reviewed made by TBB and which I think the set that will have more demand than the other 2 sets that are released at the same time. Below is a picture taken from TBB:

76007 Iron Man: Extremis Sea Port Battle

Though not much pictures are provided by the reviewer, but I believe the review are detailed enough. This set comes with War Machine and Mark 42 and this is pretty much the reason that it will sells well if were to compare to the other set. Additionally, the boat looks good, compare to the armored car of Mandarin, and so I think is worth getting one.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes #76008 Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown Review

The playset of Ironman 3 has been officially release in LEGO Shop, which is more than a month back before the movie was release. Below is a picture taken from the review made by TBB:

76008 Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown

The Heart Breaker Ironman is not that accurate especially the helmet which I believe is shaped differently. Anyway, we do not have any choice, and if you want to complete your Ironman minifig, then you need at least one set of this. All of these Ironman 3 playset first sells in Amazon and it pretty quick get snatch up by people, luckily it was release in LEGO Shop, now everyone can buys it before it was sold out again.
