Lego Mini-figures Series 9 Complete!

legos9003

I finally finished collecting Series 9 of the Lego Mini-figs.  This has been a much harder set to complete compared to past releases from Lego, as they have decided to make some individual Mini-figs rarer than others.  You used to get 3 or 4 complete sets of characters in every box but in this season you get a crapload of ...

Lego Minifigs: Series 9

Series 9 has finally arrived in Australia!  I had a chance to pick up some mini-figs from Myer last weekend.  Series 9 has got some pretty sweet looking characters.  I’m particularly looking forward to picking up The Judge, Chicken Suit Man and Cyclops. But I have had some absolutely terrible luck with my first haul.  Whilst I was happy to ...

Lego 10233 – Horizon Express Video

It looks pretty damn great.  I like the cheeky upsell at the end that encourages you to buy two of them. Also…rumours are mounting that the next modular building is going to be ‘Palace Cinema.’  Hopefully we’re not too far off from an official announcement.

Since I was a kid, I’ve always held a fascination and affinity for trains.  There are a few things I can think of that sparked this interest in me.  It would’ve come from my brother, who collected model trains, had a Top Trumps train set which we played a lot when we were little and who went on to make ...

Lego Architecture Series 21009: Farnsworth House

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to build something from the Lego Architecture series.  I’ve always liked the look of Mies Van Der Rohe’s Farnsworth House but stock of it is hard to come by in Australia.  Fortunately, I cam across it during Myer’s 20% off sale and I also had a voucher from work which meant ...

Lego Minifigs Series 8

Lego Minifigures Series 8 have arrived in Australia!  Too be honest, it doesn’t seem that long ago that Series 7 arrived on our shores.  Having said that, there are some pretty sweet minifigs in this set and its a lot cheaper and friendlier for shelf space in my apartment than getting another modular building. My first haul yielded the deejay, ...

Lego Lord of the Rings: Gandalf Arrives 9469

To paraphrase Walter Sobchak, the beauty of the Gandalf Arrives set is its simplicity. This Lord of the Rings set is taken from one of the earliest scenes in the Fellowship of the Ring when Gandalf makes his return to The Shire.  The minifig for Gandalf looks awesome, his cart is made up of only a handful of pieces but ...

Lego Town Hall 10220

Aaaand…done. The Lego Town Hall is the final building (thats still in production) missing from our Modular Series range.  Released in March 2012, it is the newest and biggest in the series, designed by an architect named Estrid. The Town Hall is a worthy culmination of the design elements that have appeared in the previous modular range.  It has a ...
