Since Brick Insights began indexing LEGO reviews we've added 446.4 reviews each week on average. That's a bit misleading since thousands of reviews were added in bursts, but still - that's a lot of reviews! This page shows you what happened this week, since 2019-06-12. You could say it's a week of reviews in review if you wanted to be a bit cheeky.
These sets have received extra attention, with multiple reviews for each of them. They're all from 2019 or 2020 and ought to be available for purchase.
by CapnRex101 for Brickset News This unique Baryonyx is not entirely faithful to the movie but its head looks brilliant and the articulation provides ample potential for creating dynamic displays. In addition, the off-road truck and its trailer are both exceptionally detailed so have exceeded my expectations.
by Adam White for Bricksfanz Although this isn't my favourite set in the range, I enjoyed the build of the 4×4 offroader quite a lot and how bulky it looks. It would have been nice if the trailer was a little bigger than it is, even if this meant losing the scenery section.
by Chris for The Brothers Brick The Tyrannosaurus Rex is a stunning sculpture and amazingly well engineered. It is without a doubt the best brick-built creature LEGO has ever made. It looks both terrific and terrifying, and its poseability and balance are remarkable. The gate is also very good model but not nearly as exciting. However, it's hard to deny that this wouldn't be much of a Jurassic Park set if it included only a T. rex, so the gate works well to tie this into the theme and provide a suitable backdrop for the dino.
by Adam White for Bricksfanz The Minifigure packs are a great ideas to bulk out your collections and add further play options to other LEGO NINJAGO sets. I quite like the two bad guy characters, plus in a low cost set like this you get to check out the new elements, without having to shell out on a larger set. But there is no doubt that Clutch Powers is the Minifigures most people will be buying this set for. Even those who aren't a fan of NINJAGO, could be tempted to pick the pack up just to add this legendary character to the collection.
5 / 5 by LEGO Shop I only bought this set for Clutch Powers. The rest is going to end up chucked in a bin. I payed 13 odd some USD for Clutch alone. I'm ecstatic this LEGO character is finally getting a minifigure and it's something I want to see more of. Even if designers have to sneak it into other lines. I'd really like to see Jack Stone or the Rock Raiders get similar updated minifigures just like the Rocket Racer has in the CMF series or Pepper is getting in Hidden Side.
by CapnRex101 for Brickset News Clutch Powers has elicited considerable attention and is undoubtedly the highlight of 40342 NINJAGO Minifigure Set. This minifigure looks fantastic, borrowing certain features from his original design while updating his appearance where necessary. The other three minifigures are individually impressive but none are exclusive which is slightly disappointing when compared with previous minifigure packs.
5 / 5 by LEGO Shop I was mega excited when this set was announced as this is my favourite Batmobile. This version is a brilliant minifig scale model with some fun play features built in.My son and I had wanted to build something just like this and we were in design phase when this set was announced so there was no question about getting it. The build is fun and includes a few cool techniques and the final product is pretty faithful to the movie model imo. The one area that obviously differs though is the nose cone which has been substituted with a bat symbol, but I think this works in this model anyway and looks good.Finally, the price of this set makes it totally worthwhile! If you are a fan of the Tim Burton Batman movies then this set is a must-have.
3.3 / 5 by Vaderfan2187 for Vaderfan2187's Blog I think this set is alright. It's pretty decent as far as small sets go but if you're looking for something truly of substance then this isn't for you. It's a good thing to whet your appetite for this wave of LEGO Ninjago sets, but the actual structure of the set leaves much to be desired.
5 / 5 by Jay for Jay's Brick Blog All in all, this is a very tight set that excels from every single angle. Great minifigures, exciting new elements, brick-built elements that accentuate the context of the set – all wrapped up in a pretty affordable package.
by CapnRex101 for Brickset News 75945 Expecto Patronum is an essential purchase for any Harry Potter fan. The minifigure selection is great and Harry's famed stag Patronus looks absolutely magnificent. Moreover, the surrounding trees are very interesting, incorporating some unusual building techniques which result in a distinctive and remarkably effective design.
