Greetings from Comic-Con 2012!

July 15, 2012

Jam packed days at Comic Con and Legoland. In GEEK heaven! I probably have a couple dozen posts I want to do, but I’m in the midst of too much awesomeness to stop and write about it!

Stay tuned though! I will start posting tons right after Con (assuming I’m not completely passed out on the couch from over geeking out). I’ll be doing posts on new Lego sets and minifigs, how inept Sony is with handling Human Beings, previews for new Nintendo games/products, and a WORLD EXCLUSIVE about something I got straight from the mouth of Mario.

Lego Lord of the Rings Sets from New York Toy Fair 2012

February 14, 2012

Unlike the lackluster Marvel sets, Lego (in my opinion) killed with the Lord of the Rings line. Every set is designed with perfection as it’s goal and wonder as it’s result. I’m awed.

9469 Gandalf Arrives

Price: $12.99

Piece Number: 83

Available: In June

My Opinions: Considering it’s the smallest set in the Lord of the Rings line and it’s the only set as of yet to come with Gandalf, Lego did a great job with this set.

9470 Shelob Attacks

Price: $19.99

Piece Number: 227

Available: In June

My Opinions: Right now, Gollum and Sam are exclusive to this set, and my is this set impressive! With stellar pricing and adorably awful excellent Gollum, and having it also being one of only two ways to get the ring right now, this is one set Lego and Lord of the Ring’s fans won’t want to miss!

9471 Uruk-hai Army

Price: $29.99

Piece Number: 257

Available: In June

My Opinions: Made as an extension of The Battle of Helms Deep, this set contains exclusively Eomer and a guard. A nice battle pack and a well made set, but not too eventful.

9476 The Orc Forge

Price: $39.99

Piece Number: 366

Available: In June (Only at Target)

My Opinions: Very similar in style to the Dwarf’s Mine from the Castle line a few years ago. Really good-looking structure and a nice parts pack for those who want to build a massive orc army. Decent pricing too.

9472 Attack on Weathertop

Price: $59.99

Piece Number: 430

Available: In June

My Opinions: So far, the only set with Merry and the Nazgul and, besides the Battle of Helms Deep, the only way to catch Aragorn. The set itself is quite a nice mountain that opens to reveal a room inside. The only thing not great about this set is it’s price. At about $0.14 a brick, even with the new horses and the spiral staircase, that is a hard price to swallow.

9473 The Mines of Moria

Price: $79.99

Piece Number: 776

Available: In June

My Opinions: Currently, this is the only set to obtain Legolas, Boromir, and Pippin, which makes this already awesome set incredibly drool worthy. Not to mention that, besides The Battle of Helms Deep, this is the only way to get Gimli. The set holds it’s own with it’s piece number and price and has quite the nice array of building fixtures (plus a Cave Troll). Quite incredibly epic if you ask me.

9474 The Battle of Helms Deep

Price: $129.99

Piece Number: 1,368

Available: In June

My Opinions: This MASSIVE castle contains exclusively King Theoden and Haldir, but also comes with a selection of other nice figs including Aragorn, Gimli, and 4 Uruk Hai. The set has a dining hall, exploding side door, and an adorable little catapult for which can be used to hurl Gimli at the orcs.

Lego + Adventurers + Steampunk + Classic Monsters + Apocalypse = Monster Fighters

January 25, 2012

20120125-203256.jpg

When I first heard about Lego’s new set line, Monster Fighters, I blew it off thinking it sounded kinda stupid. Then I saw the monsters, and they looked rather promising, but I wasn’t sold on them alone. THEN I saw the “Monster Fighters”… I think I’ll let the epicness speak for itself.

20120125-210818.jpg
But I can’t let the epicness speak for itself! Look at them! They are the Adventurers with Steampunk body parts from a post-apocalyptic world! As if amazing minifigs wasn’t enough, check out these preliminary set images! Once again, no one seems to have been sneaky enough to get pics of the final ones that were shown at the toy fair in London, but I will be sure to post them if I find any. All the titles sound fishy to me, so don’t count on them being permanent.

9461 The Swamp Monster

20120126-000200.jpg

9462 Mummie

9463 Were Wolf

9464 Vampire Hearse

And yes, that is a guy in a suit wearing a bowler hat with a robotic leg wielding a musketeer sword riding a motorcycle attacking a vampire riding a hot rod with a chauffeur.

9465 The Zombies

(No image. Just think about what it might contain!)

9466 Frankenstein

9467 Ghost Train

20120126-074557.jpg

9468 Vampire Castle

20120126-074640.jpg

So yes, I believe that Monster Fighters might be Lego’s most intriguing non-licensed brands in a long while. Essentially, Lego + Adventurers + Steampunk + Classic Monsters + Apocalypse = Monster Fighters.

Again Lego? Really? You are going as far as teasing me with Legolas (with awesome elf hair)? Just wow.
