Review: 76095 Aquaman: Black Manta Strike

76095-thumb

The latest entry to the DC Cinematic universe – Aquaman – was released in cinemas on Boxing Day, a few months after the release of this tie-in set.

I requested this set for review before I’d had a chance to see the movie so I had no idea how well it related to the content before I got it. I am always interested in how well a movie related set relates to what we see in the movie. Sometimes it works out better than others.

I got a chance to see the movie while I was on holidays and I really enjoyed it, let’s see if I enjoy the set as much…

Book Review: DC Comics Build Your Own Adventure

As book week comes to a close I am taking a look at one more Build Your Own Adventure book. This time Green Lantern John Stewart takes us on a journey through the world of DC Comics.

The central plot of this book is that John Stewart is looking for the Justice League, and with communications down he has to go find them in person.

For those not familiar with the character there is a brief introduction on who he is. It doesn’t get in to the entire history of the Green Lantern Corps but does provide a basic overview.

The Justice League has had a varying line-up over the years as you’d expect for anything to do with comics, but the team presented here is the basic big hitters: Wonder Woman, Flash, Superman, Aquaman and Batman.

DC BYOA Book 01

After the instructions for the included set we get the usual builder talk section that seems to be common to all of the Build Your Own Adventure books. It’s a nice overview of the different parts on offer and acts a little teaser to get your brain thinking about building.

[Read on for details on the Green Lantern Minifigure and the included set. There is even a 360° look at the set]
