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.
