Introducing 21137 The Mountain Cave

The LEGO Minecraft theme is a bit of an interesting one. It originally started out as a single small LEGO Ideas set and has now grown into a long running theme. A theme that now has a huge new set in it’s lineup – introducing 21137 The Mountain Cave.

21137_Prod

This massive 2,863 piece set is the largest Minecraft set to date, featuring 2 minifigures (Steve and Alex) and a lineup of animals and mobs; a cave spider, wolf, baby wolf, slime, 2 small slimes, 2 bats, zombie, enderman, skeleton, sheep and a charged Creeper™.

Designed around an lengthy mountain minecart track the set features a heap of play features such as TNT blasting and even a Creeper explosion.

The included light brick can be placed in one of 7 different locations to highlight your prefered feature whether that is the redstone wall or the furnace.

With a modular design you can easily reconfigure the layout of the set in multiple ways.

You will be able to purchase this set online from July 1st, with a VIP pre-release from June 15th. No Australian RRP at this stage but with a US price is $249.99 expect this to be around $400 locally.

There really is a lot packed in to this set, so I suggest checking out the press release and huge gallery of images below.

Target 200x200

The selection is limited to just 20 sets across a few themes but you can as always find the full listing below.

This sale kicks off today (May 18th) and runs until May 24th 2017.

Competition: Polybag Giveaway

Woolworths stores are currently stocking a range of polybags but they seem to be a bit hard to track down.

To help out a little I didn’t just get myself two polybags from my local store – I got 4 so that I could share the polybag fun with you all. There are two polybags on offer – one 30400 Gymnastics Bar and one 30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat set.

The first name drawn will get first pick, and the second name drawn will receive the other set.

How do you enter? Rather than just entering your name, I’ve decided for this competition you’ll have to do a little work. I have reviewed both of the polybags on offer. Read each review and then answer two questions to go in the draw.

Review: 30400 Gymnastics Bar

I make no secret of the fact that I am a big LEGO Friends fan. The sets are almost always well designed and I actually don’t have a problem with the Minidolls.

When my local Woolworths finally got in the polybag range they are now offering this was the first set I grabbed.

30400 Gymnastics Bar

30400 Gymnastics Bar (1)

This set contains a relatively small part count of just 26 elements, as well as a single minidoll.

The included minidoll is Naomi – who is not one of the main LEGO Friends characters. It’s nice to expand my Heartlake City citizen collection, but some buyers may be disappointed that it doesn’t include a more well-known character. Despite this the minidoll is great. Naomi features blue eyes, a freckled face and dark brown hair. She is presented here wearing a great green spotted top and purple shorts. Overall it’s a really nice minidoll.

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.

Happy Mother’s Day

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
