BrickFair New Jersey 2019!!

Last week I went to BrickFair New Jersey to display my first MOC (My own Creation) I had a fantastic, memorable time. I met so many smart, talented people and saw so many cool creation.

I started my MOC in early July. After purchasing the LEGO Iron Man Hall of Armor I wanted to create the Avengers Compound so I did. After many hours and LEGO orders, I completed it in time for BrickFair. Since it was my first MOC, I just started building, I didn’t think of how big it would actually get. (30 IN wide, 32 IN long and 10 IN tall) I could barely fit it out the door. The next MOC will be able to be broken up into separate smaller sections. I will post some pictures at the bottom.

I convinced my parents to let me skip school on Friday and my dad and I drove down to Secaucus, New Jersey. We transported the MOC on a thick wooden plate. Once I set up I got to meet and talk to fellow creators. I met one older gentlemen who was so passionate about his 1994 Pink Floyd Stadium. He was ecstatic when I won a Brickee.

I was super nervous the next day. I wasn’t sure if the public would like it or even look at it. I was wrong. Everyone loved it. It was the only MOC there that was completely centered around Marvel’s Avengers. Kids would run up and try to find their favorite character, and when they did they would get so excited and point them out to their parents. Even adults loved the MOC. One women asked if she could place her personal minifigures next to Stan Lee. I said of course and to put a huge smile on here face.

Another child named Jackson came up and stared at the MOC for a few seconds. He then turned and whispered to his mom. His mom asked me if he could shake my hand. Shaking Jacksons hand made building the MOC 100% worth it. I estimated that over the weekend 500 photos were taken of my creation. Some people said it was their favorite on there.

Overall I had a terrific time at BrickFair NJ. I had a great time with my dad and my family. I enjoyed seeing all the kids run up to the MOC. I already have next years creation in mind. Thank you BrickFair New Jersey!!!

LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina Review

The minifigures are extraordinary. This version on Han Solo is the most accurate LEGO has produced. The printing is nicely finished The hair piece is done really well. I only wished they added his iconic smirk instead of a full on smile for the second side of the head. This is the first LEGO set were we got Wuher. I love his design, Its simple and detailed at the same time. The detail on his chest is a nice addition and really completes the character. The Sandtrooper is amazing as well. Its super detailed and just looks plain amazing. I love this backgear and shoulder pad. In my opinion this is the best Greedo figure LEGO has created. It looks really awesome. He has printing on his print and back torso and front legs. Overall the figures are awesome.

LEGO Star Wars Escape Pod vs. Dewback Microfighter Review (Blog Post)

I stated in my 2019 Star Wars set wave blog post, this Microfighter set is one of the coolest in the entire series.

Set Name: LEGO Star Wars Escape Pod vs. Dewback Microfighters
Set Number: 75228
Pieces: 117
Minifigures: 3
Release Date: January 1, 2019

As always, I will start with the minifigures. The first notable feature about the set is that it comes with 3 minifigures instead of the usual 2 figures. This is the first duel microfighter to have the 3 figures and hopefully we will see more in the future. In my opinion, the Sandtrooper is by far the coolest figure in the set. He comes with backgear, a staff, binoculars, and a long ranged assault riffle. The trooper can store his extra gear on the Dewback which is nice. Inside, the troopers helmet is complete with back printing. This is the first white helmet to include black interior printing and I like it. The trooper has a lot of detail on the front and back. I’m so glad they included printing on the back even though it’s covered by his backgear.

The Dewback is super cute. It has light and dark green printing and a brown saddle. The feet have three claws that are tan. Both the head and tail has the ability to move and rotate so you can choose how it is positioned. Another cool feature which I already mentioned is you can hold the Sandtroopers extra gear- an awesome feature. The Dewback is by far the best part of the set.

The escape pod is very impressive. The fact that they found a way to have both droids fit on the pod is amazing. The engines are very similar to the most recent escape pod. There is not much to say about the pod, except that it’s a really cool design.

This set is great. It’s very small and probably the cutest microfighter set out there. I normally am not a huge fan of the microfighter but this is by far the best one they have created. I would give this set a 10/10. Let me know what your favorite microfighter set is down in the comment section, and have a great day!

LEGO Star Wars Snoke’s Throne Room Review (LEGO Blog)

Hello readers, today we are going to take a look at the Snoke’s Throne Room. I got this set as a gift from my grandparents in California. Thank you so much!

This set is amazing! The size is perfect and it comes with an excellent selection of minifigures. When this set first came out it retailed for $70. I have know idea what LEGO was thinking; for $70 that would be a scam. Now it’s going for $45-$50 which is a great deal.

Set Name: LEGO Star Wars Snoke’s Throne Room
Set Number: 75216
Pieces: 492
Minifigures: 5
Release Date: August 1, 2018

First I will start with the minifigures. I think the most noticeable minifigures in this set are the Praetorian Guards. They are in an all red uniform and face. They have the new skirt-ish pants that we have been seeing more and more recently. Their weapons are good looking. We have the same Snoke Minifigure as we saw in the First Order Star Destroyer. He is dressed in golden robes. I don’t have much to say about him, he was a nice figure but wasn’t a well developed character in the movie. Rey is in this set and he is my favorite figure of Rey they have created; I love the hair and the grey/blue outfit. Kylo Rem is in his all black armor outfit. Both figures look great.

Snoke’s Throne is cool. It can turn 360 degrees and has the ability to be removed from the room. Right before his throne where Rey stands, you can use the pull system to move Rey closer to Snoke and reenact the scene from the movie. I personally love this feature, It definitely improves the playability. The two tall walls to either side of the room make the set look complete. The only thing I would have liked to seen was red drapes on them so it resembled the movie better.

There is a little quarter wall on the side of the room that has a magnifying glass where you can look into space. The space piece is a sticker and you cannot see any space ships outside, but you can see stars. The bridge is a little small width wise, but still looks good. I like how they added the railings for extra detail. The door in the back looks nice too, although it is a little hard to turn the door.

Overall, I like this set. I feel like the playability is strong and the design is solid. I could not ask for better figures. At the $45-$50 range I would give this set a 9/10. Let me know your thoughts on the set in the comment section!
