Ah yes, Minifig sets aside, we get a proper set! This one is in the 2009 Castle Line so it will soon be replaced with the disapointing looking Kingdoms.
As little RJ has just found out, this set is amazingly big for a £25 set!
It also has the classic numbered bags, 4 and two large pieces in this case.
A rather enjoyable build later...
Here are the minifig's: An exclusive and amazingly awesome Golden Knight, The 2008 Advent's Jester, An exclusive Queen, A Knight (a very generous addition with a new smirky face), Two Skeleton's (Black and White) and the Grim Reaper complete with horse. It's practically amazing value for just £25.
They are also very generously made, with back and leg printing! Especially the Golden Knight who has Leg Printing and (under printed-armour) chest and back printing! This is probably so we can't get a Pearl Gold Minifig without consulting eBay though.
The set itself is also pretty impressive with various nooks and cranny's.
The Drawbridge has a Lego Chain-made drawbridge that actually works.
Inevitably though, it has ugly Flick-Fires that don't necessarily work thanks to a Ballista that rotates.
It also has a little Dungeon/Cave/Troll-under-the-bridge's House.
To be honest, the spare parts are one of the biggest let downs!
To show how good this set is, look at this picture!
This set is pure Gold (especially the Golden Knight!). For just £25 you have one of my favourite sets ever with lots of replay value and brilliant Minifigures. Before the disapointment that is Kingdoms Comes (two weeks in a row!) buy this set, you won't regret it!
Alas, the age of Magnet Sets ends! Instead, I'm reviewing Dwarf Warrior Battle Pack. Shut up...
Pretty cool though, aren't they?
The set comes with a great wealth of very useful equipment: Double-sided Axes, Shields, a shovel, a pick-axe, a hammer, a torch, some ore and a barrel!
Underneath the armour we get a mixture of Crownie and Viking torsos and some normal heads.
Except from this great double-sided head.
Brilliant simple brilliant... A wealth of equipment and some great figs for just under a tenner. Now, go out and buy this set before Kingdom Come(s).
Please don't hurt me.
Once again in the BlockTales Set Reviews: We have magnets. However today we have Star Wars 10th Anniversary Stormtrooper Magnet!
Although this Stormtrooper is only worth lots because it is chrome - Lego haven't done a quality chrome paint job (as you can see in this picture).
And for some reason - the helmet just won't stay on!
Then you get just another Minifigure-holding Magnet.
These things are piling up now. I wonder what I could do with them...
I just thought of something...
If you want a quality chrome Minifigure, go buy a different magnet set. This is just for show, and nothing else. Also, don't let the viewer see anything else of the Minifigure, or they'll see its just a badly painted Stormtrooper.
Oh yeah, don't show up tommorrow - I'm only doing the Reviews once a week so I don't run out of Sets.
Today continues our Star Wars Magnet Set Reviews, today we have the catchy-and-clearly-named Magnet Set CW Yoda 2009 - yes, I didn't make that up.
Here it is - in all its more-than-just-"CW-Yoda-2009" glory.
Like yesterday's review and all the other current Magnets - the Minifigure is just a Minifigure.
"CW Yoda 2009"'s stand has two extra bricks so that the midget can actually stand on it. That helps.
I believed "CW Yoda 2009" to have a normal plastic head - just slightly bigger than the normal one, but he actually has a rubber head, WITH HAIR!
The Lightsabre's are pretty cool, especially since I only ever had a General Grievous fig with some. These however are in the new pearl silver. The differential is "CW Count Dooku 2009(?)"'s specially moulded Lightsabre which is in chrome.
A good set, worth its price all in all, despite the annoying "CW 2009" head's. This is helped by the fact that they all have Lightsabre's (In purple and a new hilt), the "CW Count Dooku 2009" hairpiece and "CW Mace Windu 2009" being my first black minifig (Chewbacca doesn't count). Oh yeah, and the hairly little green midget (2009) is so good looking. Definately one of the better Magnet Sets.
Ok, this doesn't really count as a set, but if it's buyable from Lego, I count it. This set is more commonly known as "The One with Battle-Damaged Darth Vader" simply because of its complecated name, though according to BrickSet, it is named simply "Star Wars Magnet Set".
It has the exclusive Battle-Damaged Vader, rare Shadow Trooper and uncommon Snowtrooper. I've fallen in love with the smoothness of the latter.
However the BDDV is simply amazing.
I also almost immediately noticed that BDDV's neckpiece is a SNOTed visor. With looks quite amazinging cool. It also makes a good radiation mask.
This Magnet Set is amazing, and almost worth it just for the exclusive-with-expensive-set BDDV, possibly the best Magnet Set I've seen, and in a word: Instabuy. Now, thats enough persuasive advertising, go buy it now!
