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.

Lego NINJAGO Layout final update (for now)!

Hello peeps and Lego fans.
It's been a while, again lots of stuff to deal with.
Anyhow, I worked a lot on my NINJAGO layout recently and wanted to share it with you.
Just be warned, it is all a bit pushed together due to space reasons and could look a lot better if I had the resources.
Here is a quick overview of everything. Sadly there is a blank table space that I could not fill at the moment but maybe in the future. 
It is set up like a battle and yes, you will see ninjas twice or more everywhere. 
What I am most proud of is this section here. My lego minecraft sets had to suffer for the base plates but it looks pretty neat in my opinions. The only things I want to refine is the lower sections of the river walls. 

Here is a look at the baddies. I know, loads of water, but since a lot of the enemy sets I own are flying and the city of stix is in water I decided that it is alright for now. 

I always like the idea of having the anaconda temple on top of mountains so I tried that out. I think it looks decent but you can clearly see my amateur MOC experience. I also switched the bridge so that there was a way down. The helicopter is a very tight fit. 
To seperate the areas a bit I added a small waterfall which runs into a hole in the ground. I also added a waterwheel to supply electricity. 

Here is the bottom of a lot of the sets. I used almost all my clear pieces but the two airships just had to be in the "air".

On top I had a shelf (ikea) which I used for a dragon showdown. 
Fun fact: Master Wu I only display 2 even though I have him 4 times. I liked him riding his Dragon the most. He is hidden inside the flying ship and inside the temple. The only other place he is in is his little airbaloon but you can barely see him. 

Here is another look at the Ninja side. Placing the tiger island was hard so I put it in the back just to make it seem like the enemies are invading the Ninja land. On the bottom left you can also see a bit of enemies fighting ninjas. 

Finally I added kind of a border. A double border actually. Also there is the rope cannon used to bring down the enemy mech. 

Overall I think my layout looks nice but it can be a lot better. One day I will definitely expand on it and buy more baseplates. 

You can clearly see my lack of experience building MOC creations but I think I did a good job with the area next to the Airjitzu Temple.

Thank you as always for reading and stay tuned for more reviews and other posts
