Speed Champions is one of my favortite themes. Small, affordable sets with a lot of SNOT. But LEGO breaks the standard with a new width for the models. Curse or blessing?

I'm going back to my youth for the next set. Friends was the biggest thing when I was around 12 and I have memories of laughing so hard I stopped breathing. When this set was announced I knew it would be one I'd get, not really for me (the nostaglia isn't THAT strong) but my wife is an absolute Friends-fanatic. It wouldn't be hard convincing her on letting me buy this set.

Welcome to Jurassic Park...T.rex Rampage review. Ray Arnold said it best "Hold on to your butts". Upon release, this set was surrounded in a fog of controversy, but still managed to impress. I have high hopes for this set, it sure doesn't look like a six-foot turkey.

LEGO Technic has been the most consistent theme in LEGO, producing sets for over 40 years. The Car Transporter is one of the bigger ones for the year, and posed me a question I have been ignoring since coming back to LEGO as an adult, "do I like building Technic sets?" Some of my fondest childhood memories of LEGO are Technic sets, I loved them. But after my 'dark ages' I never found the love for them again (probably something to do with the more complex looking studless models). I have avoided taking on reviews for Technic sets as I never felt qualified to give an opinion (leaving Tobymac to do all the Technic heavy lifting). But I can't put it off forever. So here's a review of the first major Technic set I have built in over 20 years.

Let it goooooo! It's still stuck in my head. And now they are back! I'll probably see the movie a thousand times, with 3 little girls in the house. Let's hope the sets are more fun ;-)
