Review: 21114 The Farm

This is a small set of the new theme Minecraft, launched at the end of 2014. It contains 252 pieces and 2 minifigs. This set allows you to build one of the most common structures in the game, a small farm and a small cattle fencing to keep your animals, in order to produce your own food. The box is too big for the parts inside, in some way because it contains some big plates.

 

Review: 70410: Soldiers Outpost

One of his year novelties is the Pirates theme. The 74010 Soldiers Outpost set is one of the smallest kits in this theme, which includes elements to build a small military outpost and its soldiers and a pirate raft.

This set is very small, it contains just 148 pieces and 3 minifigs: 2 blue coats soldiers and a pirate. The soldiers minifigs are really awesome, with beautiful printings in both torso sides. Both have the same printing, but they have different ranks, that are shown with different colour epaulettes: golden for the sergeant and white for the soldier. The pirate minifig has the torso printed in both sides too, and wears a new designed bandana /warp piece.

Review 10696 Medium Creative Brick Box

This is another set of the Classic theme. The box contains 483 pieces and it includes a small guide with instructions to build several different small constructions at the same time.

This set is enclosed in a soft plastic box. The lid of the box is built with studs like a LEGO brick, so is perfect to keep your bricks in. My lid has some kind of problem as it is not possible to clip with the box, but apart from this problem I think is very useful, because this is a set focused on children, and this recipient is perfect to keep the pieces.

The LEGO bricks are a good amount of pieces of many different colors. In this case, you can build vehicles with wheels, as many wheels are included. The models depicted in the instructions are very simple, and after building all of them there are many unused parts. You  have trains, plants, cars, animals and buildings. This set shows a more advanced constructions than previous ones like 10694. There are some functional elements and some hinges. This new Classic theme boxes are full of bright colors parts, and many, many different colours.

For those skilled builders who want to collect 2x4 bricks of different colors I can say there are 12 different bricks of that type, so this set is a good starting point. And those ones who are looking for parts in less common colors, they have a bunch of them, and I think they are very useful to be used with Friends sets.

Review 10694 Creative Supplement Bright

This is a new set of the Classic building theme. The box contains 303 bricks and it includes a small guide with instructions to build seven different small constructions at the same time.

 

The first impression when you open the box and drop all the bricks out  is... Wow,  it is so colour full! Yes, you have a great variety of colours and those colours are great. Many awesome colour tones, you have several shades of pink, blue, green and yellow colours.
 
My first thought was: "This is perfect for Friends, with those many cheerfully coloured bricks". Bricks and slopes are the most common elements of this set, but you can find some brick arches and  round tiles too.
 
 
 
The models depicted in the instructions are very simple, but also very funny: an electric guitar, a flower, a rabbit, a cake, a butterfly ... A great variety of constructions that can be a great inspiration source for other constructions. The box contains several round tiles 1x1 with printed eyes, so there is a big chance to build your own animals or characters. And there are also some transparent bricks. 
 
This box is a great opportunity for those skilled builders who want to improve their abilities with colours and also  for children who need to begin with easy constructions full of colour. 

 

Merry Chirstmas

Review 21118 The Mine

Set 21118 The Mine

Ages: 8+

Pieces: 922

This is the biggest box of the new wave of Minecraft® related sets. Minecraft is a very well known game about breaking and placing blocks in an imaginary world. This new wave of sets are made to a minifig scale, a far better option than the micro scale sets of past years, in my opinion. I was new to Minecraft, but I played some worlds before building this set, and I must say that the LEGO® designers made an outstanding work. There are many similarities between LEGO constructions and Minecraft world, it is like a world full of 1x1x1 bricks, that can be combined in infinite ways.

Review The LEGO Movie:The Essential Guide

The LEGO Movie:The Essential Guide

 

 :: Author: Hannah Dolan.

 :: Pages: 64 Hardcover.

 :: Editorial: DK Publishing.

 :: ISBN: 9781465417008

 :: Link: DK publishing website

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The LEGO Movie: The Essential Guide is a book focused in the movie depicted in the title. This is a guide of many of the elements and characters we can see in the LEGO movie. The content of the 64 pages of this book is written mainly for young audience, but could be useful for those adults who want to know more things about the movie, or simply to live again some of the stills of the movie.

 

The book follows the plot of the movie to show the reader the main locations, characters and storyline situations. Furthermore, there is some extra content to go one step beyond in the knowledge of the movie. On one hand there is description of some of the locations: Bricksburg, Octan Tower, Cloud Cuco Land or The Think Tank, with graphical information and some details depicted on them. On the other hand, we have a  small presentation of the main characters: Emmet, Wyldstyle, Lord Business, Bad Cop/Good Cop, Vitruvius, Batman, Unikity, Benny and Metalbeard, each one with a brief description and some extra information. There is also some pages dedicated to some of the main plot situations of the movie, like the Prophecy, A day in the life of Emmet, the Assembly of the Master Builders or the life in Bricksburg. They are all intended to be a guide of the main features shown in the movie.

 

But we have another contents about the “making of “ of the movie, which allow the reader to know some details of the movie and the ideas behind it. And, there are some games to identify the reader’s skills with the ones of the main characters, or to show the reader’s creative skills.

 

In short, this is a book that explores the main features of The LEGO Movie. It is written for a child aged readers, in a comic style, very easy to be followed. The book has a predominant graphical appearance, with many pictures. Most of the main LEGO models used in the movie are depicted within, including those ones that have been released as official LEGO sets. This is the guide for all the fans of the LEGO movie, but basically for younger ones.

Review Creator set 31010

 

The set 31010 of Cretor theme is a good example o a very well designed LEGO set.

This set is very easy to build, and therefore it contains three different models. The parts available is very equilibrated, with many common parts and very few specialized parts, so they can be used in many types of constructions. 

The three models of the set are categorized in three steps: easy, medium and advanced, due to its size and complexity. They are based on the same subject: a child playing in a little house in the country. The first one is the easiest:

This model is very easy to build, and very colorful, that is something nice to start with.

The nest model is larger, with some more elements but with the same complexity as the first one, a water related aera is added to the construction:

This model includes some interior details of the house, like an oven. The building process is also very easy to follow and the final model is very nice.

The last model is the most complex and largest, but it is very similar to the other two, so there isn't any problem to build it:

This model contains a better designed house with some funtional features, like the flip-top ladder used to climb up the tree.

This a perfect set for beginners who want to go a step further and build more models. The content, a lot of very useful parts, and the three different models are the best part of this set.
