Camping is a constant topic in numerous Lego sets and while I’m not a big camping fan those sets are usually nice to build and equally nice to play with. So lets find out how 31079 Sunshine Surfer Van fares.
This years 60th anniversary has brought us the Building Bigger Thinking sets. They are colorful, fun and supposed to inspire creativity.
10401 Rainbow Fun is the smallest set and therefore a good starting point to give the Building Bigger Thinking line a try.
Lego has dedicated a Juniors and Duplo line to last years Cars 3 movie. While both themes are not exactly the first choice for AFOLs, I still thought that the small Junior sets looked like a lot of fun.
When the movie was released, I decided that it was time for my daughters first cinema visit. We properly enjoyed ourselves (Popcorn and all) and right after the movie bought 10730 Lightning McQueen Speed Launcher.
Soon after 10731 Cruz Ramirez Race Simulator and 10732 Guido and Luigi’s Pit Stop followed. Much to my daughters delight I finally completed her collection with 10733 Mater’s Junkyard this week. A perfect opportunity then to take a look at the whole range of our Cars 3 sets.
Lego has a long history of cars in all sizes. Through the years they introduced several themes dedicated to cars resulting in the current Speed Champions lineup.
I’m a big fan of vehicles in general and sports cars in particular. So its no wonder, that I own most of the Speed Champions sets produced to date. My personal preferences aside, I still think Lego is doing a lot of things right with the Speed Champions range. Most sets are small, reasonably priced (given license fees) and will appeal to children and adults alike.
Lets have a look at 75880 McLaren 720S, one of last years sets, which comes with a minifigure and a designers desk.
In 2013 Lego introduced a series of small Lego Technic vehicles build around a pullback motor. Since then Lego released two such sets every year and I think most of them are brilliant.
42033 Record Breaker started off as a little present from my wife in December of 2015. Little did she know that this would bring me out of my dark ages and get me hooked on bricks.
Lego City Magazine is a convenient way to extend your city with corresponding minifigures and accessories. The Magazine Gifts usually include a minifigure plus an extra. It started off in 2017 with very common themes (police, construction, …). 2018 seems to bring a welcome change in moving to current special themes.
