#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 7

This section shocked me. Honestly, I sat down to start building and thought to myself, ‘Do one section tonight, will take about an hour.’ Wrong! Took two hours, which wouldn’t be a problem, but I started at about 11pm. So yeah, I was knackered the next day, thank the Maker it was a weekend. TheContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 7”

#CollectionCorner – Mandalorian Battle Pack (2020)

When this set was first announced late last year, I, and possibly many others thought this set would have something to do with ‘The Mandalorian’ series. But when the images were first released and I found out my hopes were not quite on the ball, I was not disappointed. Why? Because these mini-figs look amazing.Continue reading “#CollectionCorner – Mandalorian Battle Pack (2020)”

#CollectionCorner – Star Wars Lego Busts a Bust?

This morning I woke up and found that The Brothers Brick had put put images for two of the three sets coming out in a couple of months. The Stormtrooper and Boba Fett Busts. First up is the Stormtrooper Helmet, and wow, does it look bad. The face looks too small, the ‘tube’ at theContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Star Wars Lego Busts a Bust?”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Sections 5 and 6

Section 5 Halfway there!!! The fifth section is THE MIDDLE. The whole of the middle floor is built in this section and it’s done in four quarters. The different sections are (anti-clockwise from top left) The Emperor’s Throne Room, Docking Bay, Superlaser Control and finally the Detention Block. The Docking Bay has a hole inContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Sections 5 and 6”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 4

When I fished out all of the bags for Section 4 I had a mild panic. There were only three bags as opposed to the usual (so far) four. Once I opened them all up and sorted the pieces into a somewhat ordered set of piles I realised why, this Section isn’t a huge constructionContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 4”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 3

“What a wonderful smell you’ve discovered!” The third section has been completed and we get the main part of one of the most iconic scenes from ‘A New Hope’, that’s right, the Trash Compactor. The first part of theirs section gives us part of the back wall of the Compactor with an open door andContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 3”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Star Wars Summer 2020 Rumours

Everyone! Good news! We’re getting some decent sounding Lego sets in the summer!!! Everyone! Bad news! According to rumours there’s nothing from ‘The Mandalorian’, but that’s ok… for now. BRICKFANATICS has put out a rumoured list of upcoming sets that will be released during the Summer, with the main focus being on ‘The Clone Wars’Continue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Star Wars Summer 2020 Rumours”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 2

Unlike Moff Jerjerrod, I don’t feel like I am behind schedule… Section 2 builds the second level of the Death Star, which includes three new rooms and a large space which will become clearer later on. I build this section in two Building Sessions, both of around an hour each (roughly) The first building sessionContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 2”

#CollectionCorner – May 2020 Lego Releases

Thanks to Brickfinder.net, the list of upcoming Star Wars Lego sets is here and it’s… Pretty disappointing really. Lego is starting to busts of character helmets, it’s been confirmed that there is going to be an Iron Man bust and now we’re getting a a Stormtrooper and Boba Fett busts. I don’t feel like IContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – May 2020 Lego Releases”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 1

For years I had been after this set. No word of a lie, when it was released it went straight to the top of my wish list. And every time it dropped in price or went into a sale it was always a really inconvenient time so I basically became resigned to missing out onContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 1”

#CollectionCorner – Sith Troopers Battle Pack

The Winter 2020 Lego Sets are here and those Amazon Vouchers aren’t going to spend themselves so I went ahead and picked up my first foray into the new Wave of Star Wars Lego. As with all Battle Packs, the box contains two unnumbered bags and the instructions and no stickers. First up, my mainContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Sith Troopers Battle Pack”

#CollectionCorner – Resistance Y-Wing Starfighter Lego

One of my favourite Star Wars Lego sets in my collection is the Y-Wing from the second ‘Rogue One’ wave. The details are phenomenal and the screen accuracy is out of this world, so when they announced that we were getting a Sequel Era version I was excited and to have it as part ofContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Resistance Y-Wing Starfighter Lego”

#CollectionCorner – Inferno Squad Lego Battlepack

I’m not usually one who goes for the Lego Battle Packs unless there are some decent figures (Bounty Hunter Speeder Bike) or it’s a vehicle that actually appears in a film or show (Imperial Patrol Bike) so when the ‘Inferno Squad’ set was announced I may have gotten a little bit excited. As a massiveContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Inferno Squad Lego Battlepack”

After one season of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’, that has grown a huge and dedicated fan base but the merchandise is severely lacking, especially here in the UK.
