The Imperial Assault Hovertank is the smallest and least expensive of the LEGO® Star Wars: Rogue One Sets released in 2016. Boasting 385 pieces including 3 minifigures for $29.99 (US), is the set worth buying? Here are my thoughts.
I am thrilled to announce that over the next few weeks, LEGO® “Master Builder” Peter Guenther will be back with new reviews! This time he is armed with the LEGO® Rogue One sets. The floor is all yours Peter…
I suppose it’s not too surprising that the 2016 LEGO® lineup for Rogue One only includes one Rebel set (versus four Imperial sets): it’s the story of a plucky band of insurgents against a galactic Empire, after all. Initial photos of the set including the box art left me cold; I found it unattractive and boxy and wasn’t sure it was an acceptable value, especially at $79.99(US) for 659 pieces. Out of the box, though, this set really surprised me; built, it’s bigger than I expected and has great detailing.
Last week was an exciting week for our blog: I was interviewed for my very first podcast!!
I had the great pleasure of talking to Shiloh Kamrath, who runs the podcast Faster and More Intense.** Shiloh and I spend about 15 minutes chatting about the May the Fourth be with You Party Blog: how it all got started, some of our favorite posts, and what the rest of the M4P crew and I are planning next.
I am still processing the movie… so more on that in a different post. Instead, today we are thrilled to share M4P guest writer and LEGO® “Master Builder” Peter Guenther‘s review of the ship whose appearance in The Force Awakens made me squeal with joy. Take it away Peter…
The Force Awakens, LEGO® has released a new version of the Millennium Falcon, set 75105. Weighing in at an impressive 1329 pieces (plus a few extras, just in case), six minifigures plus a droid, and a price tag of $149.99, is this set worth the investment?
There are bad guys, and there are scary, snarly, nightmare inducing guys. Bib Fortuna always gave me the creeps more than any other character…. I think even more than Darth Maul.
This creates an interesting dilemma when making children’s clothing… On the one hand there is the opportunity to use a pun like Bib, on the other hand you don’t want to scar your young child for life.
