"Did someone order the fish"?
" Deep Sea Creatures, Set 31088, 230 pieces. This set is simply amazing in so many ways that I can not write everything I love about it. So I will keep it simple and let the pictures speak for me. I took the pictures of what I was able to make with some extra pieces that I had.
In the set you have instructions for 3 different builds, as well as a additional 4th that you can down load from LEGO. Shark, Crab, Whale, Squids and Deep Sea Fishes are just the start on what you can build. When I finished the set I had so many ideas for displays.
This set is perfect for the beginner as well as Master Builders, its fun straight forward build that will let you imagination run wild.
I feel this is a must have set for 2019. "

I'm Batman, Your Welcome!
" THE LEGO® MOVIE 2™ (TLM2) Battle-Ready Batman™ and MetalBeard. Set #70836, 169 pieces. Comes with Batman, MetalBeard in crab mech form, Madox and Star figure. Accessories include two Batarangs. two pirate swords, and Maddox’s spear. Batman's throne has a ladder, batwings and moveable sign. MetalBeard crab form has possible legs, a crow tower, flag, and treasure chest that holds a surprise.
This is was very well designed and has so much playability for everyone. The Batman minifigure is probably everyone's favorite and this figure is truly deserving the throne. With his Apocalypseburg new styled armor, cape, all new print and new molds. There is also a little "Easter egg", the red Batman logo hub cap on his chest armor is from the original Batmobile in Batman TV show.
Over all this set was a very fun build and only had a couple little problems, one was getting MetalBeards legs posed just right to stand when you have Madox in the crow nest, but I found if you turn back two legs out just a little more it will be more stable. The Star figure is very difficult to stand up on its own (because it flies around and does not have legs), however I wanted my Star figure to be able to be placed along side my other figures. So placed a couple of 1x1 clear plate on the back and works great, no more falling over. (picture below on how I placed pieces).
Happy Building Everyone. "

20 new reasons to go LEGO shopping!
" THE LEGO® MOVIE 2 (TLM2) Minifigure collection set #71023. Each bag has one of the 20 new minifigures characters from TLM2. Each figure will have a accessory that is unique to each set. The base play is white this time and I think it really makes the print on the characters really come out. However I would have liked to see the Wizard of Oz figures to have yellow but that's ok I just used piece from my Lego box.
The names for each of the minifigures are Emmet, Lucy, Benny, Giraffe Guy, Crayon Girl, Sherry Scratchen-Post & Scarfield, Hula Lula, Watermelon Dude, Flashback Lucy, Swamp Creature, Candy Rapper, Golfin' President Business, Apocalypseburg Abe, Rex Dangervest, Kitty Pop, Dorothy & Toto, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Unikitty.
Over all I am very pleased on the design of all the minifigures as suspired that Batman or Metal Beard was not in the selection. Unikitty was however a step backwards I feel. There is no real new print on her making her look like she is from Apocalypseburg or disco theme. I would have liked to see Lego make a unique Unikitty that would reflect TLM2 more. The attachment for the head is also the old way that does not stay together as well. But with the outstanding details, new print, new molds and unique pieces on all the other minifigures more then make up for her.
From what I have read and experienced you should have no problem finding all the character minifigures out there, no rare or limited figure (like the Policeman). So I would really recommend picking some up your own collection or start a new collection.
Happy Building Everyone. "

"Who let the kids out"!
" THE LEGO® MOVIE 2™ accessory set #853865 comes with 48 pieces. 4 figures, Emmet, Apocalypseburg citizen, and two sewer babies.
I have been wanting a set with the sewer babies ever since I first watched the trailer for The Lego Movie 2. They do not disappoint. The set has a build of the remains of a car as well as stud shooter. The citizen has the run down look with new prints on figure. Emmet has to options for his face expressions, fear and happy. Then we have the sewer babies, they have been dressed up in the latest Apocalypseburg baby wear with each having a unique face print. The new sewer babies arms and hands do not move however the head will move and come's off. The hands are molded so they can not hold anything. The babies will fit on one stud.
Over all I was happy with this set with the exception of getting another Emmet figure. I think putting in another random citizen figure would have been better. With two different citizens you could have change up the figures build using the head, torso, legs etc. This would have given the set more appeal for expanding your population building in Apocalypseburg . Normally I would have bought multiple sets just so I could have made up more random citizens. With the set as it is now I only needed to buy one.
I would recommend picking up this set as it will be very popular for Lego builders of all ages (6+).
Happy Building Everyone. "

Quick, Find the controls to extend the bridge!
" Death Star Escape #75229, 329 pieces. Comes with a all new Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Stormtrooper with the newly designed helmet mold. The set has a excellent design that allows you to open and close the door, retract the ramp, knock the Stormtrooper off his ledge, swing across the gap and much, much more!
When building the set I was enjoying it so much that had to have the Star Wars movie playing on the TV because it brought back so many great memories of seeing Star Wars for the first time on the big screen.
The build might be a little tricky for younger builders that are just starting to work with LEGO. However young and old will love this set because there is so much playability and there are so many ways you can change up the way you display the set. I decided to set mine up next to the Lego Death Star set.
Having said that I think this set is a must have on my 2019 list. Both Fans/collectors of LEGO and Star Wars don't miss getting this set.
Happy building to everyone. "

"Look Sir, Droids"
" The 2019 LEGO Star Wars Micofighters are out and I have to say this set is outstanding!
The set "Escape Pod vs. Dewback Microfighters #75228, 177 pieces. Comes with a all new Sandtrooper with re-molded helmet, C-3PO, R2-D2, Escape Pod and Dewback.
The build is straight forward and fun. I really enjoyed the Dewback build in this set, the feel and design works perfect in the Microfighters scale. However I feel the Escape Pod is a just a little to compact for C-3PO and R2-D2. But I understand the over all theme of the Micofighters series so in the end I'm ok with this.
With lots of little extras in the set I would recommend pick one up, or like me I got two just for the Dewbacks and new Sandtrooper.
Happy building to everyone "

Feel the true power!
" Feel the power of the LEGO Community and Star Wars fans alike. We asked for it and LEGO made it for us!
Elite Praetorian Guard™ Battle Pack set# 75229, with 109 pieces. The set comes with three Elite Praetorian Guards, a First Order Stormtroopers, training droid, weapon rack and a training platform.
The Praetorian minifigures have new style helmet and weapons. The figures now have minifigure legs in place of the robe style found in the Snoke's Throne Room set #75216. This gives you much more ability to pose your minifigures in more action poses. You can also attach the training platform to the Snoke's Throne Room to expand your play. I picked up two of the battle packs and attached the platforms on each side of the room.
The Elite Praetorian Guard™ Battle Pack is a easy build with unlimited playability as a stand alone set and as a expansion to your collection. The price point is very good for what you get in the set.
Happy building to everyone. "

Benny's Back!
" Benny's Space Squad set # 70841 with 68 pieces count comes with newly updated prints for all of the four minifigures. You also get a space buggy, robot, tools, accessories and a mini SPACESHIP!
To start I must say this is one of the best classic space minifigure sets that the LEGO Group has released to the open market. I know this is a shared feeling with most of the AFOL and LUG groups that had the classic space theme growing up. The popularity was so high that when first released online on the LEGO Shop website they where on backorder in no time. I was one of the lucky ones that picked one up while out shopping. They are now back in stock online as well as the LEGO Stores.
This set features Benny (blue print), Kenny (yellow print), Lenny (pink print) and Jenny (white print). Benny has the classic space logo that is faded out as it reflects he is from the 80's and is well played with. Benny also has two new face expression that are very well done. Benny's Squad all have the classic space style. The colors blue, yellow and white where common for classic space in the 80's, however never done in pink. So this is a new treat to have a pink classic space style minifigure.
The space squad robot is a great addition to this set as well as the buggy and mini spaceship. All together you have a great starter set with tons of playability for everyone and a must have for all minifigures enthuses.

With a very easy build, a great price point and unlimited playability Benny's Space Squad is on my must have list.
Happy building to everyone. "

Sweet fun for everyone!
" The LEGO set "Unikitty's Sweetest Friends EVER!" #70822 has 76 pieces and all new prints for the mini figures as well as new elements. Unikitty has two new fun expressions that are interchangeable. She is joined with her friends Ice Cream Cone and Chocolate Bar. The Ice Cream Cone figure has all printed pieces and is very colorful and a fun mini figure. Chocolate Bar is a very tasty looking mini figure that looks like someone has had a little nibble already. The set has a yummy cart with all sorts of treats.
This is a very fun set that is a easy build and has loads of playability for all. The set is great as a stand alone as well as adding to The LEGO Movie 2 world collection.
This LEGO set is very reasonable priced for how much you get with all the new prints and pieces.
Great Job LEGO Group, I cant wait to see "The LEGO Movie 2" that is coming soon.
Happy building to everyone. "

"I have that one and that one and that one...."
" I picked up a couple of the LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes Mini figure Display Frames after see the mini figure display frame promotional with "Mr.Stud Muffin" (that's what I call him lol). I love the way it displays your mini figures. It was easy to hang it up on the wall. You can also display it on a shelf or desk as it has a flap that is fixed on the back. I have had no problems with the mini figures staying on even after adding more stands on the frame. The frame is a high quality cardboard material, this had me worried at first. But the frame holds up great and looks great. I would not recommend putting near water (fish tank) as this might damage it.
This is a great buy on many levels, not only for a display but the use you can get out of the gray base plates for other Lego builds. I now have bought four of the frames and plan on getting more after the holidays.
Happy Building. "
