Wingardium Leviosa
" As a big Harry Potter fan i was on the fence initially about these books. I knew I would get them but I wasn't sure if I was really in love with them. One plus point for me is that each Moment is based around a class that is related to one of the houses and this reflected in the minifigures included and the overall colour choices for the book.
Charms - Ravenclaw
The book itself is quite small and falls somewhere between A6 and A5 when compared to actual paper sizes. I did think they would be slightly larger based on the box size. However, there is so much detail included in each classroom that I found I soon overcame the slight disappointment I felt on their size.
The Transfiguration Class opens up to a full classroom scene that relies on it being laid out on a play surface. Incorporating a blackboard explaing the Wingardium Leviosa spell, shelving with a range of supplies and a host of little bits and pieces. Of course it has some classroom furniture so Professor Flitwick can teach Cho and Harry.
I was surprised at how snuggly everything fits back in to the book so that you can fold everything away in true playset fashion. Unfortunately, the minifigures do not fit in to the closed book so they do stand a high chance of being separated from the set.
My favourite display option is to have it open as the full book. If you have all 4 of the series they do link together in to a circle which makes for a fun look. It does take up a surprising amount of space though.
Overall an entertaining take on the Harry Potter franchise that was fun to build and offers a good balance between playability and display.

However, there is so much detail included in each classroom that I found I soon overcame the slight disappointment I felt on their size.
The Herbology Class opens up to a full classroom scene that relies on it being laid out on a play surface. Incorporating an indoor and an outdoor area with various plants and equipment. Of course it has some classroom furniture so Professor Sprout can teach Cedric and Neville. I am not a big fan of minifigures in general but I really enjoy the special prints on these and the inclusion of earmuffs for dealing with those pesky mandrakes.

However, there is so much detail included in each classroom that I found I soon overcame the slight disappointment I felt on their size.
The Potions Class opens up to a full classroom scene that relies on it being laid out on a play surface. Incorporating a blackboard with potion ingredients, shelving with a range of supplies and a host of little bits and pieces. Of course it has some classroom furniture so Professor Snape can teach Seamus and Draco. The way this particular Classroom is constructed means it splits in to 2 separate areas and this is really effective. The detailing on the "spine" wall is exceptional and even incorporates a nice stylised snake.
I was surprised at how snuggly everything fits back in to the book so that you can fold everything away in true playset fashion. Unfortunately, the minifigures do not fit in to the closed book so they do stand a high chance of being separated from the set.

Race The Cat
" These are a pair of very sturdy race cars that look just as good on display as they do being played with. Good rolling action on the tyres and they really do look great on my shelf with other Speed Champion series vehicles.
There are some stickers to apply and a couple of them did test me but I got ther ein the end - well, good enough that I can live with them at least.
I liked that you have a male and a female minifigure driver in the set and that both have hair and helmet options. Just adds nicely to creating a story around the vehicles. I did go with the helmeted in vehicle version as it reduces the need for shelf space otherwise they would have been displayed next to the cars.
Nice addition of the starting gate which was a satsifying build despite being so simple.
Overall a good variety of building techniques are demonstrated over both vehicles and it really shows what you can achieve with only a few pieces.

Small and Perfectly Formed
" First off, I am so disappointed that Lego didn't go with this model for the 1:8 Scale Technic release. When I first saw the teaser images from Lego I was absolutely in love with this model and then when I found out it was roughly 1:16 I was disappointed. It is so beautiful that it would make a fabulous addition to the larger builds.
There are a few pre-printed pieces in the set but a large portion of the decoration is by stickers. Yep, sticker heavy but well worth persevering with as they elevate the look immeasurably.
The problem with the smaller Technic builds, for me, is that the engine block is simplified right down and that is my favourite bit of any Technic build. Have to say I had a complete blast building this car and enjoyed every single second of it (you couldn't wipe the grin off my face as it grew into a beautiful vehicle from chunks of plastic).

Seriously Collectable
" I don't have the Vidiyo App and I have no intention of getting it because it just doesn't appeal to me. However, from a minifigure point of view these looked really interesting to me - and I am NOT a minifigure afficionado or even really a collector of them.
The problem I have with minifigures in blind packaging is that I can never tell what is in them (and that is when they were in plastic bags) so there was no chance with the new boxed versions. Luckily I came across a brand new box of 24 pieces in my local supermarket and took a risk on getting one whole side of the box. I got 12 out of 12 figures on my first pass which I will call a result.
The figures in the range are:
Werewolf Drummer
Red Panda Dancer
Discowboy Singer
DJ Cheetah
Samurapper
Shark Singer
Banshee Singer
Cotton Candy Cheerleader
Genius Dancer
Alien Keytarist
Bunny Dancer
Ice Cream Saxophonist
All have front and back torso prints and are well themed. As someone who doesn't really go in for the minifigures I particularly like the distinctive custom mould heads on several of the figures. Looking forward to setting a display up for these. "

Shake It
" First of all I have not downloaded the Vidiyo App and I am actually not likely to. I know that is what they are designed for but I will admit I got these more for the Minifigures than for any interest in making music videos through the App. This does make the set seem expensive, however, if you are going to be using the Vidiyo App then you have to factor in the actual licensing costs to Universal and their Artists that make the App possible by uploading their back catalogue on there.
Beyond that the set is actually pretty fun.
The box itself is simple to build and even comes with a little storage box for those additional beatbit tiles. The lid for this storage compartment is decoratable and each instruction leaflet gives you three options for a design. Alternatively you could make your own from the pieces included (you do get a few spares) or raid your stash and do something truely unique. The box clips together firmly and the handle feels strongly attached. You could deifnitely use the box to transport your beatbits and minifigure around with no problems.
The minifigure itself is nicely detailed and has a front and back print to the torso. The accessories reflect the figure's Vidiyo role and you can easily store the figure with accessories in place in the Beat Box.
The 16 included beatbit tiles are well printed and come in a variety of colours so you can change them out based on the image on the front or their colour. Alternatively you can use them for what they are meant for - special actions within the App. Personally I think they will be a great resource for MOcs, particularly wall art or for using as book covers or vinyl album covers.

" First of all I have not downloaded the Vidiyo App and I am actually not likely to. I know that is what they are designed for but I will admit I got these more for the Minifigures than for any interest in making music videos through the App. This does make the set seem expensive, however, if you are going to be using the Vidiyo App then you have to factor in the actual licensing costs to Universal and their Artists that make the App possible by uploading their back catalogue on there.
Beyond that the set is actually pretty fun.
The box itself is simple to build and even comes with a little storage box for those additional beatbit tiles. The lid for this storage compartment is decoratable and each instruction leaflet gives you three options for a design. Alternatively you could make your own from the pieces included (you do get a few spares) or raid your stash and do something truely unique. The box clips together firmly and the handle feels strongly attached. You could deifnitely use the box to transport your beatbits and minifigure around with no problems.
The minifigure itself is nicely detailed and has a front and back print to the torso. The accessories reflect the figure's Vidiyo role and you can easily store the figure with accessories in place in the Beat Box.
The 16 included beatbit tiles are well printed and come in a variety of colours so you can change them out based on the image on the front or their colour. Alternatively you can use them for what they are meant for - special actions within the App. Personally I think they will be a great resource for MOcs, particularly wall art or for using as book covers or vinyl album covers.
