"I just got back from watching The LEGO® Movie, and here's my review of it; everything is awesome. I know. But anyways, enough of that and on to my review of The Melting Room.
For a small set, you get the a good slice of the action pie. The laser, the thing that Emmet is chained to, and the rest of the set does look like it came straight out of the movie. I think my favourite part of the set is "The Piece of Resistance". Rather than being glued to Emmet's back, it is detachable meaning that it can be used for anything. Which. Is. Awesome. Sorry 'bout that.
One thing I do think that could make this set better would be an optional hairpiece for Wyldstyle. I know, you're supposed to buy the other sets to get it, but what if you could only buy one set at a time?
In conclusion, it is a great set and a must-have for any fan of The LEGO® Movie."
"When it comes to buying the same set over and over, I have been proven susceptible to LEGO's mind tricks having bought Rocka 3.0, Rocka (6202), and now Rocka (44002). You will want to buy this set, and here are some reasons:
Rocka has a great overall new design, resembling a knight this time around. His sword is new, he has a new mask and visor which were unavailable until now, and a new shield (see below for pic).
The best feature of all is that his shield can attach to his back and become like a pair of rotor blades so he can "fly" around the house.
Overall, very impressed and needless to say, this IS the hero you are looking for."
"Night shifts can be a pain sometimes. Almost a year ago, on Halloween night I was working outside of my hometown. I finished my shift around two in the morning, clocked out and headed home. After ten hours of work, the last thing I wanted to run into was a patch of fog; which happened. It set me off course, and without a GPS I was lost. Or so it seemed. I called home to get directions and made it home. Nothing like a spooky story to start a review, right?
There's not much that I can really add to this review other than a little humour. Yes, the zombie is recoloured, and the witch is the same one from Minifigures Series 2, we know. You can really use your imagination with this set. The zombie is on patrol watching over the grave and making sure nothing happens to it. The witch uses her broom as both a cleaning tool and a way to get home, while the ghost uses its chain as a jump rope (because even ghosts need to keep in shape).
Overall, if you love Halloween as much as I do, this set is a good buy."
"I'm not really a big music fan, but I've got a decent variety of songs on my iPod touch.
Anyways, this is a nice little set for the LEGO fans who are also hardcore music lovers. The drum set is nice, but the bass drum was a bit loose putting it together for the first time. I solved this problem by taking the drum off the pin tile it was on, placing a plate 1x2 W. 1 Knob directly behind it, placing a Stick Ø 3.2 W. Holder in the middle of drum (after putting it back on the pin tile), with a Light Sword - Blade in the middle for added support.
The minifigures are also pretty cool too. While they are recolours of minifigures from series 3, 4, and 7, their uniqueness makes this set a must have for collectors."
"A curse is never a good thing to have, especially if it's linked to an ancient Egyptian mummy. Quick history lesson; mummies are the preserved remains of a deceased person. According to Egyptian mythology, it was believed that the person would need their body in the afterlife and tampering with it could result in a curse.
Anyways, on with the review. The mummy here has sweet chariot and I have say, it's a nice piece of work. Both the mummy and the horse glow in the dark, but I find that the effect shows much better on the horse. I believe the reason for both of them glowing is because the mummy drank the Crazy Scientist's flask of Chemical X thinking it was green tea and thought it was so good, he decided to give some to his horse. Bad idea.
Ann Lee's copter is nice, but lacks flick-fire missiles. It would have made the set cooler, but still adds playablity to the set.
Overall, it's a good set to have if you're a fan of LEGO and/or monster movies and I give my recommendation."
"Lurking within the deepest and darkest depths of the Swamp of Malice is the Swamp Creature, the guardian of the Bog Moonstone. Only a skilled monster hunter can obtain it with ease.
Though not a big set, there are some good things to say about it. First, the airboat is very detailed and impressive. Second, the boat has good action features (flick-fire missiles and a propeller that spins). Lastly, the minifigures have a great amount of detail too and their head pieces are really nice.
Overall, this is a good set for a LEGO or a monster movie fan."
"This is pretty much the only scene I can remember from The Fellowship of the Ring. When I was in the seventh grade, I had a video and tech class where the class watched Fellowship and our teacher would pause the film to point out certain special effects. That was an awesome class.
This set is very accurate to the scene in the movie, including the new horse piece which I consider it to be my favourite part of the set aside from Gandalf's beard.
One thing I noticed about this set when I was building it was that the wagon has a higher part count than I thought. In step 2 of building the wagon (as well as some other steps), two 1x2 plates have been substituted for a 2x2 plate. I believe it's just to raise the part count though, considering it's only 83 pieces all together.
Ultimately, I think it was a good purchase and it makes a nice decoration on my dresser."
"When you think of blocks, what comes to your mind first? LEGO? Minecraft? Well with this set, you can think both! I was very excited to read that LEGO Minecraft had passed the CUUSOO review, and even more to see the final product that I'm reviewing now. Anyways, on with the review.
The box that the pieces come in is thick cardboard, which is convenient for one reason; the completed model can fit inside it, which is really nice for the long trip to grandma's and it won't get damaged easily. This set also contains a brick separator which is useful as there are a LOT of 1x1 plates and tiles in the model (plus a good amount of spare pieces). Also, I recommend sorting the pieces out by colour/size to make building this model easier.
I really like this set, and I'm glad to be able to get it at last. Overall, I think my money was well spent on this."

LEGO Minifigures: Minifigures Series 6(8827)
Collect every mystery minifigure in the hot new Series 6!
"I really enjoyed collecting the sixth series of LEGO minifigures. The only thing I disliked was not being able to find them for a while. Here are the ones I've collected so far: Bandit, Butcher, Intergalactic Girl, Genie, Leprechaun, Minotaur, Clockwork Robot, Lady Liberty, and the Surgeon. There's something I like about each of these, but I'm not going to go in depth about it. These were really nicely done, and I really think I'll enjoy series seven!"
"As somebody who's bought the original Rocka (Rocka 3.0), naturally I felt like I should get this one too. I should have held off until I had more cash on hand, but I didn't.
Anyways, great set. The blaster for Rocka looks cool and works great. His energy shield is nice too. His chest plate has been redesigned and his mask is a piece of art as well as it resembles Kopaka's or a Clone Trooper's. Also like the new Hero Cuffs. The Hero Core takes up two spots on the chest and has a code on the back of it.
One thing I will point out is the thing that's supposed to hold Rocka's "arrows". Putting it together, I thought it looked weird and out of place. So I just made some slight modifications on mine.
