Lego Military Troopers: X78, X78/B, and X79

Devid VII's Lego Military Troopers X78

This Military Crew consists of the X78, the X78/B and the X79. These guys are sporting some of the best power armor out there. The X78 is a larger hard suit, perfect for tanking, that accommodates a Minifigure sitting down. Outfitted with a large rifle this guy is ready to fight. The X79 is the smaller armor, which makes it much more nimble. This power armor comes with rocket launchers and an automatic weapon. Finally the X78/B is an alternate version of the X78. This time accommodating a standing position, and a little bit more armor. These three Military Troopers are the work of Devid VII. Who shows off some excellent Minifigure scale building techniques. Check out how the standard legs are removed and the power armor is incorporated into the torso. Allowing a more realistic appearance (knees!)

Lego Collectable Minifigures Series 13 (71008) Review by WhiteFang

WhiteFang Lego Collectable Minifigures Series 13 Review

Lego is on a roll with their Collectable Minifigures. The newest Lego Collectable Minifigures Series 13 (71008) has a release date of January 2015. Which means you can probably expect a few retailers to sell them at the end of December. So, make sure to save up your Christmas money because there are a lot of great figures. Series 13 continues the trend of extremely detailed Minifigs, while increasing the quality. These figures are still made in China but a lot of the production problems of the past have been worked out (slightly off colors, tight or loose connections, etc.).  Interestingly, there is also some sort of code/contest thing going on with each figure. The only bad news is that these are at the, now permanent, price point of $3.99. Although some retailers (notably Target) may be selling them at $2.99.

Lego has made a few breakthroughs in Lego Minifigures during the Collectable Minifig theme. This time around there seems to be a breakthrough in cloth capes. Featuring multi-piece capes with color printing! Whoa!

The Slave I, A Massive New Lego Star Wars Ship Revealed (75060)

Lego Star Wars Slave I, 75060 Box

Recently at BrickCon, Lego revealed its newest entry into the Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Series (UCS) will be the iconic Slave I (75060). This new set will feature 1,996 pieces and will retail for around $199.99. This is the set that almost every Star Wars fan has always wanted. It will include a Boba Fett, Han Solo (and Carbonite version), Bespin guard, and Stormtooper Minifigures.

Lego Star Wars Slave I, 75060 Profile

Best of all the scale of this ship feels right, the set doesn’t feel too large or too small. It is officially in the Minifigure scale. The photos can be a little misleading, but this is a huge spaceship. Easily the size of a small dog, or baby.

Lego Star Wars Slave I, 75060 Minifigures

The Slave I is a modded Firespray-31 class attack craft, famously used by Boba Fett, and Jango Fett. The design of the model is a good compromise of the SNOT style and more typical Lego style. Most of the exposed studs act as a sort of texture, giving the Slave I a well used appearance. This is certainly not a brand new star fighter.

Lego Star Wars Slave 1, 75060 Ship

Lego designed the model to work in both configurations, the vertical and horizontal positions. The wings and cockpit can both rotate to fit whatever position Boba Fett is flying. Which is a really sleek feature for this set.

The version of Boba Fett is exclusive to this UCS, as is the Bespin Guard. Also included is Han Solo, a Carbonite version of Han Solo, and a standard Storm Trooper.

Flickr user, -derjoe- has been creating these hilarious Lego Star Wars figures for some time. The proportions and basic geometry work surprisingly well.  The “Bounty Hunters ‘Executor Meeting’ ” is a great recreation of that famous scene from The Empire Strikes Back. These guys are built in a “Klotzkopf-Style” which roughly means “Block Head” in english. These have recently appeared in a book titled “Build Your Own Galaxy: The Big Unofficial Builder’s Book

New Lego Star Wars Announced for March 2014: a Lego AT-AP (75043)!

Star Wars Lego AT-AP

This past weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) Lego announced and revealed a whole lot of new sets. One of which is a new Lego Star Wars AT-AP (75043). This is a new version of the older Lego Star Wars AT-AP Walker (7671), which has proven to be extremely hard to find. The AT-AP (All Terrain Attack Pod) made its first appearance in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It looks like this version will feature five minifigures, a Wookie, Clone Trooper, and three Battle Droids. Gone are the bright red and lime green detailing, giving this Lego AT-AP a much more realistic design. Not to mention vastly superior feet and legs. This new Lego AT-AP will include a total of 717 pieces and will priced at $69.99. Due out in March 2014.

San Diego Comic-Con (2013) Lego Exclusives: Micro Bag End & Star Wars: Jek-14 Starfighter

SDCC LOTR Micro Scale Bag End Lego Exclusives

Not only does Lego have some extremely rare exclusive minifigures at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) this year, but they are also offering two exclusive sets. A Lego Micro Scale Bag End set and a Lego Star Wars: Jek-14 Mini Stealth Starfighter set. Each set features one minifigure and about 100-130 pieces. Limited to a production run of 1,000 sets each, these exclusives will sell out quickly. These two sets are first come, first serve, so if you happen to be lucky enough to be at SDCC this year make sure to get their early. They will be on sale for 39.99.

These Lego exclusives don’t seem to be that amazing, with figures and builds that don’t seem too special. Although the Jek-14 minifigure is an exclusive figure. Which means the secondary market for Jek-14 is going to be insane.
