LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Age of Ultron Price List

The waif for the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Age of Ultron playset is finally over for Malaysian and here's the price list of each of the set that we currently have in our local shop.

#76029 Iron Man vs. Ultron

#76030 Duel with Hydra

#76031 Hulkbuster Rescue Mission

#76032 The Avengers Quinjet City Chase

 #76038 Attack on Avengers Tower

#76041 The Hydra Fortress Smash

If you are a Marvel Super Heroes fans, I believe all these playsets are hard to resist especially when you are AFOL and you are going to collect every single minifigures that you can get. Right now Captain America is rare, so does Black Widow, other minifigures which I think might be costly will be Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.

LEGO Speed Champions Price List

The new Speed Champions theme already hit our shore and there is definitely a demand for it. I see a couple of fans already get their hands on the car and share picture in on of the AFOL group I joined. Anyway here's the retail price in Malaysia:

The new theme together with Marvel Super Heroes Age of Ultron playset is being release during March. Both LEGO Speed Champions and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is now the focus on the fans here.

You can get all these set at Brick Bastion or LEGO Certified Store or even Toys'R'Us.

LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia Minifigure

There is something nice coming our way this time round with the new exclusive minifigures which I am interested with. This time round, we are going to get Boba Fett in prototype armor from the latest LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia.

This minifigure was revealed two days ago on DK US Facebook page. Compare with the previous two, old school Luke and Emperor Palpatine or Darth Sidious, I would prefer this one more. A great addition of minifigure to be added into your collection. Not sure how much this book is priced here yet and I guess this is why we have a loads of new minifigures lately, so we could have more dictionary.

LEGO Star Wars #75095 TIE Fighter

New York Toy Fair definitely have a lot of LEGO set to be shown and here we go, today is a day where we start to do financial planning for our LEGO collection. Anyway, back to the topic, this is one huge set with a lot less feature that is coming this May.

The set does comes with a TIE Pilot with printed hand just like Boba Fett in Slave 1. Now I wonder how much my #9492 TIE Fighter will cost now. . . Hmm. . .

LEGO 70728 Ninjago Battle for Ninjago City Review

This is definitely a must get for me, but it is still in my wishlist, hope am able to get it before the free sheep were out of stock here. At the mean time, let me influence you guys to get this set with a review made by others.

Lego 70728 Battle for Ninjago City Review

This set comes with eight minifigures and lots of features, the price is MYR549.90, and is definitely a harsh price tag for me despite being cheaper compare to the sets from last last year, but is definitely a good set to be consider since it has great design and features to play with. 

For those of you that have not gotten the set just like me, you may click on the link below the pictures for viewing pleasure or to help you on your decision before the free sheep is gone, especially for Malaysian.

LEGO Ninjago #70753 Lava Falls Review

Here't the number two smallest set of this round LEGO Ninjago playset, somehow this one was priced higher. Below is a picture taken from a review in Eurobricks:

This one does comes with the Jade Blade collection too, but in scythe kind of look. At least this time round, no, maybe since the Reboot, the collectibles were easier to get as they are mostly available in smaller set rather than a big one. This set is selling at MYR34.90 right now featuring a falling bridge. I guess the price is higher due to the parts that we get from this set.

In case you have not bought this set yet, and you are still considering, just click on the link below the picture to read the review.

LEGO Ninjago #70752 Jungle Trap Review

The Ninjago theme seems to attracts me, I got almost all of the set for this wave, left out 2 more sets due to tight budget. Anyway, here's a small affordable set, #70752 Jungle Trap which were retail at MYR29.90. Just in case you have not get one, here's a review in Eurobricks:

Nowadays TLG always gives us something to collect in most of the theme, for this instance, Jade Blade which were included in the lower tier Ninjago playset that range from MYR29.90 to MYR79.90. I would say a good grab although the set usually comes with two minifigures. I have not opened mine, but to fill up your free time with LEGO set and lack of budget, I'll recommend you this set.

LEGO Pirates #40158 Chess Set

Well this is something new that I spotted today when I browse the LEGO Certified Store, the new LEGO Pirates Chess set. 

The set was priced at MYR249.90 comes with 857 pieces. I think this is way more worth than the Kingdoms Chess Set. Seems like there is a lot of bricks and you can keep the minifigures under it when you are not playing them. The two side can be combined into a shore. My thought, is reasonably priced with 20 minifigures.

LEGO Ideas #21301 Birds Landed in Malaysia

This is the first ever LEGO Ideas set that landed in Malaysia and this is something that I look forward for. Although this does not fit into any theme, but the birds are great!

#21301 Birds
580 pieces

If you like birds or any brick-built animal, although this one is closer to realistic version kind of animal compare to the Creators cat and monkey, then this is not to be missed. I might get one to keep and never to open due to the nice box art.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes #76042 The SHIELD Helicarrier

Take on the challenge of building this awesome LEGO® model of The SHIELD Helicarrier.

Includes 5 minifigures: Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill.

The price tag here definitely going to be crazy with the current weakening ringgit and GST coming although some rumors said that TLG will absorb it. Let's hope ringgit getting stronger by the time this set was released, but there is no doubt that this is more expensive than the Star Wars Sandcrawler.

LEGO Creator #10246 Detective's Office Review

A lot of my friends and fans of LEGO are looking forward for this set to hit our shore here. Before the set reaches here, well here's something to feast our eyes. Below image is taken from Eurobricks member, Oky's review: 

The interior of this set seems pretty crowded but still there are greatly design with some playability. I have no idea who is the baddies but there are some secret compartment to play with. It definitely made a great addition to our modular collection. That said, there is some catch up for me to do on the previous launches of modular house. Sigh*

Review link is right below the picture.

LEGO DC Super Heroes #30303 The Joker Bumper Car

I wonder if it's only me that feels there are so much nice minifigures of polybag set from the super heroes theme. Although it is not a something new to be shared but I found this polybag interesting.

#30303 The Joker Bumper Car

Made out of 47 pieces and you get a Joker minifigures and a pie on his hand to give a good slap to Batman. Awesome! I like the bumper car design, we should create more so there can be a bumper race between the good and the bad.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Winter Soldier Minifigures

Winter Soldier will have his own minifigures in LEGO universe. We did see him in a game and a bootleg version of the minifigures until the official one surface online. No idea why there is no Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier playset release by LEGO.

No idea how to get this yet, I have not seen Electro yet too. Hope they will release as soon as possible and people are able to grab them all for their collection.

LEGO Minifigures Gift Set

I thought I'm a happy man to have the Target LEGO Minifigures Gift Set to reach me safely from all the way from the United States. A week or two passed and now there is another one that is being upoaded on Taobao.

If you asked me who is Lightning Lad, I seriously have no idea. I only know super heroes and their villain through LEGO playset. But another one to be added into collection and it will be a good news if this is easily accessible to the public. 

Kai on the other hand seems like the other version from reboot version, somehow the print gave me this feeling that was a reboot print. And well City comes out with a diver which may be from Exploration theme while I have no idea who on earth is that from Legends of Chima, some say is Sir Fangar.

LEGO DC Super Heroes Trickster Minifigures

Here's another minifigures from DC Super Heroes universe, which we all have no news about it at all and all of a sudden this guy pop up. Looking at the packaging it is either from the movie or encyclopedia or dictionary.

The minifigures are printed on the both side of his torso and hand as well. Looks pretty good though and hardcore super heroes fans might want to have this super villain as well.

LEGO Star Wars Admiral Yularen Minifigures

Well a couple of days ago, we have some unseen minifigures surface on the web. Here's a new minifigures in a polybag from LEGO Star Wars universe which were put on sales in Taobao (a shopping for heaven for most of the ladies).

The thing is, this minifigures are expensive on Taobao but for those who like to have their hand on the minifigures first can try to purchase it from there. Seems like a promotional polybag, either with purchase or game (if there is any). Wonder how they get their hand on this. For a minifigure like me, I guess I will just wait until this is release to the public. Not to mention I'm still waiting for Electro.
