#CollectionCorner – Lego Major Vonreg’s TIE Fighter

I’ve not been subtle about my thoughts on the lack of Lego sets based on ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ since it launched last year, but out of the two we have got, the one I was most interested in is Major Vonreg’s TIE Fighter, an updated version of the Imperial TIE Interceptor with a bright RedContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Major Vonreg’s TIE Fighter”

#Collection Corner – 20th Anniversary Snowspeeder

The 20th Anniversary Building marathon has come to an end with this set. I intentionally left it for the end because it was one that I always wanted when it first came out in 1999 but never picked up. The box is designed the same as the previous 20th Anniversary wave, in black and silver,Continue reading “#Collection Corner – 20th Anniversary Snowspeeder”

#Collection Corner – Rebels Pop! Vinyl Ghost Crew

When it was announced that we would be getting Star Wars: Rebels Pop! Vinyl figures I was ecstatic. I wouldn’t say I was a Rebels fan from day one but once I finally started watching it around the time Season One finished I was hooked. It was one of the few times I ever pre-orderedContinue reading “#Collection Corner – Rebels Pop! Vinyl Ghost Crew”

#Collection Corner – Cloud Rider Swoop Bikes Lego Review

The Saint has done it again. My wife was doing an online Tesco shop and asked if I wanted anything.

Later on, she turned up at my work and asked me to pickContinue reading “#Collection Corner – Cloud Rider Swoop Bikes Lego Review”

#Collection Corner – Lego Anakin’s Starfighter

The Saint Strikes Back!!! I made a hint at the fact that Amazon.co.uk had some deals on Lego, I put it forward that U was interested in this set and lo-and-behold the following day… ta-daaaa.

#Collection Corner – The Force Awakens Rey Black Series

As I stated in the #Collection Corner – SWCE Exclusive Unmasked Kylo Ren Black Series post, I don’t collect the ‘Black Series’ due to space and the fact that there are so many now I wouldn’t know where to even start, but I always thought that the Kylo Ren looked a bit lonely on theContinue reading “#Collection Corner – The Force Awakens Rey Black Series”

#Collection Corner – Lego AT-Hauler Review

My wife is a saint. I saw that the AT-Hauler Lego set from ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ had a decent price drop on Amazon and mentioned it in passing. The next day she asked me about it and ordered it. I started building it the day after that. It has spent the past threeContinue reading “#Collection Corner – Lego AT-Hauler Review”

#Collection Corner – Star Wars: Resistance and My Lego Thoughts

Now we have had some time to absorb the fun brilliance of Star Wars: Resistance I did some thinking about merchandise.

#Toy Tuesday – Imperial TIE Fighter (2018)

Thanks to the first wave of Solo: A Star Wars Story sets from Lego I can finally say after two-and-a-half years that I have an Imperial TIE Fighter set. Up until now I had a few TIE Variants. Vader’s TIE Advanced, the TIE Striker, Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer and the First Order Special Forces TIEContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Imperial TIE Fighter (2018)”

#Toy Tuesday – Han’s Speeder

I have been after set since it was released in April, so much so that I was willing to pay the full price of £25.99, which, if you have read previous #toytuesday posts, you will know that I try to buy sets reduced. But £26 for 345 pieces is nothing to scoff at based onContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Han’s Speeder”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego AT-ST (Readers Choice Winner)

When the first wave of Rogue One sets were announced I did have to wonder why Lego were putting out an AT-ST set. When I saw the film I got it. One AT-ST in the Jedha street skirmish. The set has now been retired to make way for the updated First Order AT-ST from TheContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego AT-ST (Readers Choice Winner)”

#Toy Tuesday – Lego Vader’s Transformation

I’ll be honest, I was quite disappointed by this set. It was one that I wanted to get when it was announced. It looked cool and the selection of mini-figs was pretty good. Darth Vader, injured Anakin Skywalker and Darth Sidious. It even comes with two very screen accurate buildable medical droid figures. And £19.99Continue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Lego Vader’s Transformation”

If you haven’t seen Solo: A Star Wars then this is NOT the blog post you are looking for and move along to one of the many great, spoiler free blog posts here.

#Toy Tuesday – Lego Carbon Freezing Chamber

I got this set as a gift for my Birthday in 2016. It was the first set from the Original Trilogy that I got and what more could I ask for, Boba Fett and Han Solo mini-figs, excellent. This set has now been retired but when it was released it was priced very reasonably atContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Lego Carbon Freezing Chamber”

#Toy Tuesday – Lego Phantom II

Because I didn’t get into Lego until late 2015 I missed out on the initial wave of Rebels sets that came out, including The Ghost and Phantom I, which have both since been retired and cost a fortune on the secondary market, I’m eagerly waiting for a reissue or updated version of both sets. ButContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Lego Phantom II”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego Imperial Patrol Battle Pack

My first Solo: A Star Wars Story Lego set. OK it’s the Imperial Battle Pack releases for the film but I’m still pretty excited for it. It’s a Battle Pack so its not a big build and its main focus is the mini-figs. As usual there are four in the set. An Imperial Officer, anContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego Imperial Patrol Battle Pack”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego Millennium Falcon (2015)

This set is the one that dragged me back into the world of Star Wars Lego. The last set I had bought was in 2005, the Grievous Chase set with Obi-Wan on Boga and Grievous in his Wheel Bike. I had admired the Star Wars Lego from afar for ten years until I got theContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego Millennium Falcon (2015)”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego Luke’s Landspeeder (2017)

This set is quite special to me because of when I got it. Our daughter had just been born and my wife thought it would be nice to splurge a little bit, she bought herself some stuff and asked me what Lego I would like. So I gave her a list. The next day thisContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego Luke’s Landspeeder (2017)”

#Toy Tuesday: The Maul Pop! Vinyls

So far, Funko have released two Pop! Vinyl Darth Maul figures. One from Phantom Menace and the other from Rebels. The Phantom Menace Maul was released early in the Star Wars range of Pop! Vinyls and is a nice looking figure in the usual hero pose that Funko adopted for the early Pop! figures. ItContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: The Maul Pop! Vinyls”
