New Lego Minecraft set!

As you can see here, LEGO is going with the micro theme for Minecraft and came out with this new set. I’m really happy about the new endermen figures, but I still wish they’d start with the scale series. for those of you who haven’t seen my LEGO-Minecraft experiments: click here.  

LEGO Rebel Sets Coming!

As recently mentioned, LEGO has discontinued the Star Wars the Clone Wars theme. Many of you may find this extremely disappointing. But, do not fear, for Star Wars Rebels is here! Thats right, Star Wars Rebel LEGO sets.

Here’s a pic from the Lego Club magazine.

The picture above is just a preview. I’ll have more (better quality pictures) for may 4th (Star Wars Day). Come back soon!

New Lego StarWars Blasters

The last Lego StarWars wave included: the Sandcrawler, the Great Vehicle Collection,the Coruscant Police Gunship, the Republic AV-7 Vehicle Cannon, the Droid Tri-Fighter, the AT-AP, the Droid Gunship, the Vulture Droid, the General Grievous’ Wheel Bike, the V-Wing Starfighter, Jedi Intercepter, the Battle of Saleucami, Utapau Troopers, Kashyyyk Troopers and Death Star Troopers. not including the Micro Fighters.

These were great additions and some replacement sets for the really old ones(non-CloneWars). But, hidden among these, are three small battle packs, which iv’e highlighted in the list above. When first finding out about the next wave (via Brick Show), it was mentioned that a new kind of blaster was going to be introduced. The blaster was going to be able to actually shoot.

It was pretty exiting to think of all the possibilities, although, I never saw any pictures.

Then It finally came out, among a huge wave surrounded by repeats and new clone wars episodes.


Awesome! Awesome, awesome, awesome! I immediately wanted to go and buy the set… but then I tore my eyes from the trooper’s helmet and looked down.


I held back some barf in my throat. What is that? Oh.

Okay, okay. It wasn’t that dramatic, but the blaster was pretty bad. It’s fat, it’s disproportional, it’s ugly. In no way does it resemble a gun from either CloneWars, StarWars or the extended universe.

The new blaster’s uses are limited to play. All collectors will find it utterly and completely useless. But, keep in mind that playing with Legos is not excluded to little kids. Personally,I would find this blaster very useful in a certain environment. for example, a while ago, I had created a Lego based warfare game. The basic goal was to destroy all your enemies via a rubber band powered cannon. The pawns were a assortment of a certain themed army. They could move, and if close enough, attack. But we had no short range guns to give them, so it completely destroyed the realistic feel of actually being able to aim and shoot. At the time, there was absolutely no thinkable solution. Now that the blasters came out, I have the perfect way to attack with troopers (but I must admit I haven’t actually bought a product with the gun in it yet, so i’m not sure of it’s firing capability). Any purpose other than play doesn’t fit at all. 

However, the sets that have the blasters in them, are among the top five in the wave. And that’s the main problem i’m having with the whole issue. As a collector, MOC builder and just general Lego user, I really like to collect clones. Two out of the three battle packs have the coolest, awesomest, best clones iv’e ever seen in my life. So to not be able to collect them along with their guns. Not good. Plus, I can’t find them in any re-sellers.

The solution? Well, the main problem is looks. What if there was a way to make a thinner, smaller bullet to fit in a more stylish gun.

looking somewhat like this, except really small so that it’ll fit into a standard sized barrel.

Or, there is a second solution. If a modified bullet is out of the question, then there’s still a way to use a stud (1×1 round plate). Since the current gun is too big, what if they made it bigger? That’s right. BIGGER. The gun could be a rocket launcher or bazooka or something like that, instead of an over-sized pistol. *gasps* A way to keep the stud and design, without it being ugly. Amazing.

Summary: The new blasters look and operate terribly. But consider the little uses they have because of the sets they come in, other wise, don’t bother.




When looking for custom Lego pieces or accessories, I am looking for quality. This is exactly what BrickForge provides, and more. Their products are almost perfectly in shape with the style of a normal accessory, melding into the universe of Lego flawlessly. Also, they match Lego in the aspect of professionalism. Never straying from good service and direction.

Ranging from armor and weapons to hair and musical instruments, BrickForge always has what I need. And the variety doesn’t stop there, any and every piece has a wide choice of color, with an accurate preview for each.  Plus, there’s no need to worry about price, which is always just what it should be. Unlike many other custom part companies in it’s league, BrickForge is quite friendly and generous, adding little extra parts to my orders ( I’m not sure whether or not that’s purposeful, but it’s still pretty awesome).

The owners, Armothe and Redbean, are highly experienced with the field of Lego, and ensure that their products are adequate for both experienced and inexperienced customers. They also host a forum, and have a page on Flickr. On the forum, you can suggest a piece that they don’t currently carry, or post your usage of BF products.

I prefer BrickForge as a source of customs. icon_150x80
