LEGO City Mobile Command Center 60139

Hey everyone, this is my first LEGO City review. This is an awesome set. It’s mainly for playability but looks great displayed. The last time LEGO created a mobile police command was in 2007, (set 7743) and this is a huge improvement. Everything is updated, the minifigures, vehicles and features.

Set Name: LEGO City Mobile Command Center
Set Number: 60139

Pieces: 374
Minifigures: 4 plus 1 dog
Price: $39.99
Release Date: January 1, 2017

One cool thing that LEGO started doing the past couple years is creating female characters. In this set we have 2 male and 2 female characters. The first male officer is just the new generic figure, the only thing I would add to him is a few more tools on his belt. He has a walkie talkie, but it would be cool if he had a flashlight or handcuffs printed on. The female motorcycle rider is super cool. Her jacket has lots of detail. One thing I would add is a police logo on her helmet.

The male crook is pretty unique. He has a nice curved mustache which we haven’t really seen before. The female crook is okay, her torso looks off, the red tie does not look like a tie and I’m not a fan of the gray jumpsuit. The dog is the same style dog LEGO has used for years. By now I would have expected some different color and style dogs.

The red 4-wheeler is pretty basic, not much to say about it besides the fact that I wish the dark gray chain could wrap around something so you could drive the vehicle around without it dragging. Without the chain attached, it’s a nice strong vehicle to have fun driving around. The motorcycle is definitely an improvement from the past versions. You can put some police equipment on the sides so the figure can be prepared wherever they drive. When a figure is placed on the motorcycle they are perfectly slanted so they are not too far down or too far up.

Now for the main mobile command truck. The tailor can unhook from the front of the truck. The truck has a jail cell, computer area and an area to hold a motorcycle. I love the front part of the truck with the detailed black grate in the front and the black side mirrors. However, I do wish LEGO made a custom piece making the the side mirrors look more realistic and not look super bulky and big. Between the front and trailer of the truck is some extra space where they added traffic cones. I think this is a great use of extra space and makes it especially easy to detach the trailer from the front.

Moving on to the trailer part of the truck. The jail cell is very spacious, it can fit up to 3 minifigures. The satellite on top could have been a little more complex. The middle part of the trailer folds up which is neat. Inside is a computer with a baby screen and some detailed police notes on the two white walls. The end has a spot for the motorcycle and it has a ramp to swiftly leave the truck. The motorcycle can detach by a 2×2 flat plate with a stud in the center. On the truck, I would have liked to have seen some more police stickers, specifically on the back and sides towards the end. I also would have liked to seen a license plate sticker since it is a vehicle.

Great set. Lots of play features and you can be creative with the storyline. Given this set is over 10 years old, it was due for a major upgrade from the 2007 model and I think LEGO delivered. I rate this set a 9/10. I created a LEGO stop motion with this set, please check out my YouTube channel https://youtu.be/5lPy–A6A-M and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear what your favorite minifigure is in the comment section.

LEGO Star Wars Inferno Squad Battle Pack 75226 Review

Hey Everyone, this is my first review of the new wave of the LEGO Star Wars 2019 winter set wave. And I must say this is one of my favorite sets from this wave. It’s also one of my favorite battle packs LEGO has ever created. This LEGO set is based off of the Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017) video game. As I’m not familiar with the videogame, this review is based purely on the set.

Set Name: Inferno Squad Battle Pack
Set Number: 75226
Pieces: 118
Minifigures: 4
Price: $14.99
Release Date: January 1, 2019

As usual, we get 4 minifigures in this battle pack. The first thing I notice when I look at them is the amount of detail they have on their armor. Both the back and front of the body have printing, as well as the legs and helmet. This set also has a wide variety of weapons; 3 different weapons for 4 minifigures, which is really cool. This is also the second female Stormtrooper LEGO has created since Captain Phasma was introduced, so that’s neat. Her name is Iden Versio, she does not come with a helmet and her face is two-sided which is rare for a battle pack set.

The other 3 troopers are male and they all have different faces. The Troopers have Imperial pilot helmets. The helmets don’t cover the entire head, so the back of their heads are unprotected. I wish LEGO covered the entire head so it would look better. One of my favorite parts of the minifigures is that they come with 2 gear belts that are able to go between the legs and body giving it an authentic look. The best part is the gear belts don’t affect the figures ability to sit down, so you can keep the belt on when they are flying the Speeder.

The Speeder is one of my favorite LEGO has ever created. It comes with 4 canons and two flick-fire studs. It looks fast and sleek with the color choice and wing placement. Behind the seat there are two open gray studs, I would have liked to have seen a 1 x 1 slanted triangle piece to cover it up.

Overall this set is amazing. I highly recommend picking this one up. It’s definitely a 10/10 Battle Pack and in my top 5 favorite Battle Packs of all times.

LEGO Star Wars Yoda’s Hut 75208 Review

Amazing display!! It looks great on my display shelf. But the play functionality does not measure up to its looks. In this blog post I will be reviewing Yoda’s Hut from Empire Strikes Back. I hope you enjoy!

Set Name: Yoda’s Hut
Set Number: 75208
Pieces: 229
Minifigures: 3
Retail Price: $30.00
Release Date: August 1, 2018

I really like this set. It has lots of details and play features. If you’re getting this set just to display it then it’s absolutely perfect. For play use, the inside of the hut is very cramped. Lets get right into the review so I can give you my detailed opinion in the set.

The Yoda minifigure is just plain amazing. His design is simple which is what I look for. His ropes look old, just like the movie; and they are printed so clearly. It looks a lot like the Yoda we saw in Empire Strikes Back. The rubber head piece has so much detail which shows his age. Luke Skywalker is also done very well. I like how he has two faces, anger and concentration; which are the two emotions he felt during his training with Master Yoda. The only thing I would like to see is some mud printing on his clothing to give it extra detail. I am a little disappointed with the muddy R2-D2. I wish LEGO added mud printing to the legs and back of the body, along with droid printing on the back. It looks incomplete.

The Hut has many play features. Luke can swing from ropes, use the force and leap through the air. However, as stated earlier, the playability just isn’t there. For display, the set is great. It has a small design but has powerful looks. Inside the hut is really busy. If they added a stud or two to the width it would have made a huge difference, the characters would have much more room to maneuver around. I love how Yoda’s bed can be put up against the wall and how under the table in the middle of the hut there is a secret compartment making a great use of space. The fire-pit and pot look great, it is nicely done.

Moving on to outside the Hut. I have really nothing constructive to say about it, besides the fact that I think they should have added some more green pieces to to hut. I love the roof and the smoke.

Overall the set is pretty cool. I have it displayed on a shelf and it looks nice next to my other sets. I would give this set a 6.5/10 due to the lack of strong play features, but besides that it is a cool set to have for your collection.
