Lego Ninjago Summerline 2016 Haul

Hello people, two days ago when I checked the Lego website I realized the Summer ninjago line was out and just got carried away with the sets :D
Big Box!!!!!

I did write a previous post where I listed the sets I wanted to get and I did almost stay within that margin though I switched out one set.
Originally I had on my list:

  • The lighthouse Siege
  • The Kryptarium Prison Breakout
  • The Ronin Mech now called the Salvage M.E.C.
So lets see.
Here are all the sets I got 
I think at first glance it is obvious what sets I got and which I did not. Although it is not on the list, I did have the stealth vehicle on my mind but instead of it I got the Samurai X Cave.

Let's take a closer look shall we.
This set looks great and once its build I am sure it will be

Of course the lighthouse, if you know my preferences in Ninjago, you will know that I love buildings more than vehicles. 

The M.E.C. is still here and it looks great.

This set I got mainly cause of the pirates and while it looks small, I think it may have a few secrets. 

Finally in the end I got this from the lego store as a present with my order.

So those are the sets I bought and I think the rest may follow but not for a while. In  the end I think the Value is great compared to lets say the new Star Wars sets.
The free present looks quite good and could actually fit within the Ninjago sets. 

I hope you enjoyed the new sets as well and I will see you soon. 

Have a great day,

Update Time!

Hello, first of all, it flatters so much I still get page views daily, even if it is just one (no not mine).

I just wanted to say that I will try harder, currently I am waiting on a new camera but the main issue is my motivation.

Time is not the problem, I have lots of it but with that comes the lack of motivation and that makes me feel down which leads to the semi depression.

I love all my readers and I want to try harder, you deserve more effort.

Thank you for reading.

Lego and "Depression"

Hey, today I want to talk about something more personal.

My love for Lego is obviously related to the fact that I grew up with it and some sets I buy are nostalgia driven.
BUT, Lego also helps me now a days with my personal life.
When I say it helps me I mean that it helps me with my constant down feelings.
I do not want to say depression because a lot of people have severe depression and I do not want to compare myself to those in worst state.

But for the past year and a half I have been dealing with a lot of rejections from apprentice employers and my future is clouded.
Putting effort into applications, interviews and eventually getting nothing but rejected gets to you as a person and these downs are terrible.
This is where Lego comes in. Building sets distracts me, it makes me happy and fuels my creativity.
To me Lego is not just a toy or a nostalgia thing, it is also a way to escape life for a moment.

This is just to show that for some like me Lego is much more than a passion.

Thank you for reading

and always stay positive :)

I am Sorry (update)!!!!

I am Sorry, that is how I will start this post. I am sorry for not posting and I will tell you why, no excuses.
This happens sometimes where my motivation and commitment to certain things that I love just vanish.
I am sorry but people are still here so I will try harder and that I promise.

Now to everyone a good wrestlemania day if you watch wrestling and if not then have a nice sunday :)

Thank you for listening or reading.

Lego Exclusive Easter Figure 2016!

Whats this, whats this?
There is an outhouse standing there.
Whats this, whats this?
There are flowers everywhere.

Okay, enough Nightmare before Christmas, props to you though if you sang along. 

Anyhow, this was a little present that came with orders over 30 euros on the Lego Shop (at least in Germany).
The set I ordered was Rey's speeder. 

Although the picture above is I think supposed to be a chicken pen, it looks more like an outhouse, you know, where you go poop. 

Here is the back. I love the small details, like the carving in the wood and the Lego figures in the window. 

Here is what is behind the door. CHICKEN MAN. Nothing else in the box though.

Here is a closer look. No torso print, molded arm pieces that are the wings, standard head with a chicken helmet or mask, and front printed legs. 

Finally the back. It is pretty plain, so nothing else to say here. 

That was all pretty much, thank you for reading and I hope you can get your hands on this exclusive figure.

My Lego Summer 2016 buy list!

Hello fellow Lego fans. Today I wanted to talk about the Lego sets I am guaranteed getting from the Summer 2016 wave.

-Just as a side note, the pics where taken from the following blog talking about the Nürnberg Toy fair-

A bit surprising is the fact that so far I only have 3 sets on my list and all are Ninjago. I was a bit disappointed at the Star Wars selection especially at the Force Awakens set as they could have done better.
In all fairness the year isn't over and if they do release a new Death Star, it is very likely that I will get it.
Now onto the sets.
First off is the Lighthouse Siege defense I believe it is called. I got into ninjago mainly for the buildings and seeing a new one definitely made me happy so this is going onto the list. 
I like this set mainly due to the bottom rock structure. From the get go I can see that this set can only be really displayed from one side but that's alright. 

Next is the Ronin mech. This set will add nicely to the ongoing mech battle in my display and I like the design of it a lot. 

Last is the Kryptanian Break out set. I am also a fan of small structures and this one looks pretty neat. This set seems to be heading into a pirate direction and that I like a lot as pirate themes always have my attention. Could this mean a bigger pirate ship in the future? 

These are some sets I will definitely be buying 
My price guesses? (I have not checked if there are set prices yet, these are just my thoughts)

  • Kryptanian Break out: 30 euros
  • Ronin Mech: 50 Euros
  • Lighthouse Siege Defense: 100 - 150 Euros. 
I am hoping for many more great Ninjago sets and would buy them all but you always have to make a choice. 
Thank you for reading and stay tuned for a very special review coming very very soon. 
Until next time, have a great day.
