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.

GST is coming for fellow Malaysian and if price remain the same this set might be selling at MYR849.90 which I doubt.

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.
