Since Brick Insights began indexing LEGO reviews we've added 320 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 2020-03-21. 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 2020 or 2021 and ought to be available for purchase.
by Tim Johnson for New Elementary Usually I have three categories for sets: “That looks gorgeous, I'm gonna build it!”, “Those parts will be handy, but not one to build” or “Meh. I'll leave this one out.” This set doesn't really fit in one of these categories. It made quite the ride: from something that didn't look too promising on first glance, to a set I loved building and exploring to a final model that has great details. The overall look, however, is too overloaded for my taste. When changed into the vessel it's an amazing ship and the perfect example how a bigger size of model, new parts and new techniques can make a worthy redesign.
by Chris for The Brothers Brick Ultimately, if you're a fan of classic Pirates, this set is made for you, and your Pirates collection won't be complete without it. If you're not a fan of Pirates, you won't get as much joy from the many references and callbacks, but you will enjoy building a very cool castaway island refuge and one of the best sailing ships that LEGO has ever produced.
by Elspeth De Montes for New Elementary These are fun little parts packs of colourful, decorative elements with cute designs that cover a variety of topics, hopefully meeting the interests of the many. I was particularly happy with the voluminous supply of the new 1x1 Round Tile in Transparent Light Blue With Glitter. The whole Dots concept is definitely growing on me more and more, as my children and I play with the various sets I bought.
1 / 5 by LEGO I was expecting a lot more emoji pieces based on the pictures on line and on the bag, at least one of each them. I even waited longer since they were on back order. Truly disappointing. =o(
4.5 / 5 by ttpm The "s-foils" have the ability to switch between "attack position" and "flight/landing mode," which was one of the neatest features of this set and made it a really fun interpretation of this new version of the X-Wing.
by CapnRex101 for Brickset News 71702 Golden Mech is certainly among my favourite LEGO mechs. Previous models, such as 70676 Lloyd's Titan Mech, appear more substantial and incorporate more advanced construction techniques but this creation offers unrivalled articulation so looks outstanding on display. The white and pearl gold colour scheme is also impressive and I like the subtle detail across the mech's armoured exterior.
