USAopoly Launches Project Raygun at 2017 New York Toy Fair

by
Just got back from Toy Fair setup day and got to the sneak peek of a really cool new project / label / subdivision of USAopoly: Project Raygun! And while I am literally frothing at the mouth trying to hold in who they've tapped to design one of their lines, I tell you this: she's an artist we've been fans of for 6 years now, super cool, and we couldn't be happier for her. And her line is just part of the Project Raygun offerings. Ugh... can't tell any of you more right now but you'll all find out probably by end of this weekend. I'll post pics when I am allowed to.

DHP February Releases

by

Love is in the air! Valentine's Day is coming and so are a pair of new DHP releases. Keep your eyes on the webshop this Ferbruary 14th and be quick with that keyboard. Releases will go LIVE before I leave for work in the morning.

"BE MINE" UNPAINTED PINK JIZO-ANARCHO

Ninjago Skybound Plane

by
Ninjago has been one of the longer running original IPs for Lego, and has successfully managed to stay very popular and in demand. The much larger dragons and mechs in the set are seriously some of the most beautiful and complex designs I've seen, and I hope to review one of those larger ones in the near future.

In the meantime, I was going through my piles of yet unopened, not yet reviewed/built sets and found a polybag that I had overlooked. This was was the "Skybound Plane" set, a simple smaller airship piloted by a single Pirate mini-fig.

This build was a bit of a let down. The minifigure is actually quite detailed, and has some cool aspects in detail, but I felt they really phoned it in on the plane design. It follows the Ninjago aesthetic pretty well for the most part, but at best, it was a 10 minute build. And surprisingly, this was the very first set I have ever opened that had NO spare bricks of any kind left over after building. That was pretty odd, as Ninjago is really REALLY popular with the age group that loses the hell out of bricks, only to have your bare feet find them later in the most pain inducing sort of "kill me now, I just impaled my foot on a bright yellow Danish stalagmite" kind of way.

Paints a hell of a picture huh? Yeah, call me Bob Ross. I know you won't.

So in conclusion, although the sum of the 30 LEGO bricks to make this plane are actually pretty awesome for kitbashing and creating other cool things from, the actual build is alright. Not the most sturdy, and even for the adult collectors, it's nothing but a bit above average.

I'll be back next week, with a different polybag build, to show how a cool mini vehicle can really work out with just 10 more bricks added to the count and produce a much sleeker looking build, with the LEGO Movie Super Secret Police Enforcer polybag set!
