Review: 30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat

I am not the biggest Ninjago fan but while looking at the available polybags at my local Woolworths, this set caught my eye.

30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat

30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat (1)

This 2017 polybag set contains 40 parts and a single minifigure.

The set includes a Cole minifigure, as he appears in the 2017 lineup. His torso is dark bluish grey with extensive black and brown printing on the front and rear. The print is quite detailed and features a robe and rope pattern. This pattern continues on to the legs which have front printing. The arms provide a nice contrast in black.

I do love a mysterious sale and this offer from Myer is a bit lacking in detail. What I do know is that they are currently offering 25% off their range of LEGO sets.

This is specifically listed as an online only offer, but there are no details (that I can find) on when the sale ends.

You can view their full online LEGO listing here.

  • ANNIVERSARY10 – $10 off when you spend $60 or more
  • ANNIVERSARY15 – $15 off when you spend $80 or more

A very happy Mother’s Day to all the LEGO loving mums out there. I hope your day was special and that you got spoilt.

RC Tracked Racer Challenge

RC Tracked Racer 42065 Thumb

Over the last two weeks I’ve had a chance to do something that I don’t often get to do – I took a completed set and actually played with it. The RC Tracked Racer is my first Technic set and it just happens to be a set with power functions, meaning that there is lots to do with it once the build is finished.

To see how the Tracked Racer performed as an RC toy I put it through a series of challenges. Note that these tests were performed on a closed circuit at busy office building and nearby park by a professional stunt driver a LEGO fan. In all seriousness though, some of these tests might damage your set, so I don’t particularly recommend them.

Watch the video and then read on below for more details
