Since Brick Insights began indexing LEGO reviews we've added 545.5 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 2019-02-12. 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 Huw for Brickset News What we are given is great, there's no disputing that, and if you were not aware of the original proposal, there would be nothing much to complain about. But if you are, you can't help feeling that it could have been better.
by Graham for Brick Fanatics This set looks like an animated scene come to LEGO life, which is about all anyone could ask for from a set based on The Flintstones. It is a shame that core characters were skipped, but what is in the box is well designed. It is unlikely that the modern Stone Age family will be released in a LEGO set ever again, so those who are Flintstones fans should get this release – even if it isn't perfect – and have a yabba-dabba-doo time, a dabba-doo time, have a gay old time.
by Adam White for Bricksfanz The Flintstones maybe an odd choice for a LEGO set, it's no longer on TV so most kids will probably be unfamiliar with the show and its history. So I'd definitely say the set is aimed towards older LEGO fans. That being said it's not a complex build but I quite enjoyed building it. I like how the building has been give texture thanks to layered plates and the chimney is great. I was expecting the roof to fall off just by looking at it, but I'm surprised how well it remains in place considering it's not actually connected to anything. These all help to give the set a little character. The car is a decent representation of the what's seen in the cartoon, albeit with a few tweaks to make it work with LEGO elements.
by Tim Johnson for New Elementary Considering any limitations that go with the compact size of the set, the Flintstones vibe was captured truthfully. The tiger-striped curtains, slanted boulder roof, foot-powered car and stone-age furniture are all instantly recognizable features of the cult series. With the evolving LEGO brick system increasingly lending itself to organic shapes, it was only natural to put these two timeless icons together.
5 / 5 by LEGO Shop This set is really nice and I think it will be one of the most underrated sets from this wave. It isn't officially a Juniors set, but it basically is one with the large specialized pieces, printed parts, and "easy start" build design. The main build is the Tie Fighter and for it's size and scale, it looks very nice and is really playable. It is great to get a nice representation of this iconic ship without having to pay a lot. The smaller build is a cool complementary build and has 2 great printed pieces and playability for the rebel trooper. The minifigures are also great. You get an updated Rebel Fleet Trooper, which has nice simple prints on the torso and a double sided head with 2 expressions. (He is currently exclusive to this set) The other is the Tie Fighter Pilot, which is obviously appropriate for the vehicle itself. Both minifigs also get guns, which can both be stored behind a panel on the back of the Tie Fighter itself. I honestly love this set and think that everything about it is pretty well executed, especially for the $20 (US) price. It reminds me of the 2001-2005 Tie Fighter design. My only complaint is the lack of a computer console for the fighter. All in all, I recommend this set for anyone!
4 / 5 by LEGO Shop This set is not perfect, but is pretty good nonetheless. This isn't officially a Juniors set, but it basically is one with the large specialized pieces, printed parts, and the "easy start" build design. The main build is the A-Wing, and while I think it captures the overall design pretty well, there should be more detailing as it feels a little incomplete to me. The prints on the model are great though. The second build is very simple but looks cool and is actually rather playable. It not only establishes that this set takes place on Yavin-4, but also gives C3PO something to do, which is great. The minifigures are good as well. As I just mentioned, C3PO is included which is nice, especially for kids who want to get him in a cheap set, but in the context of the set it doesn't make a ton of sense to include him over another rebel figure in my opinion. The A-Wing pilot is very nice and appropriate. This set has a few minor issues, but it is still the cheapest way to get an A-Wing (that isn't a microfighter) since 2006. I would rather pay $15 for this set than the previous A-Wing set which was $40, even though it was a better model. I recommend this set at this price point, and if you have pieces from your own collection to make this build better, it makes this deal ever sweeter.
by Dimitri for Brick Fanatics This set is completely let down by the speed in which it can be built. The blame for that lies squarely with the paltry piece count of only 62 bricks – compared to 92 in the recent 75224 Sith Infiltrator. Even by Microfighters standards it feels as though this set is completed moments after you start building, making for a disappointing experience.
5 / 5 by LEGO Shop It's a very nice set, small and compact, I don't have much to say about it since its very small, but I will try to give my honest opinion on it as thoroughly as possible. The build was average and normal, exactly what I expected, but the build was still fun, yet short. I don't like how we got a small Anakin instead of a proper Naboo Starfighter pilot, but that's not that bad. The small Anakin figure, (and 1/3rd of R2D2!) are fine, I didn't notice anything special about them detail wise. I wish we got stud shooters instead of flick-fire missiles, but I understand why LEGO did it as Stud-Shooters are bulkier and might look less attractive. That's all I have to say, its a great set for your children as a cute gift.
3 / 5 by LEGO Shop This is a cute dog, but wish they would bring back one similar to cupid dog rather than making seasonal items brick heads again. The other past detailed scenery seasonal sets (like the picnic) were also nice.
by Adam White for Bricksfanz The Valentine's Puppy may not be the most exciting of this seasonal sets, but it's still a fun addition to the collection and at least it's been released worldwide, which is bonus.
by Alexander for The Brothers Brick I've built a lot of BrickHeadz, but I still find every one of these sets utterly enjoyable to build and to collect. So, if you were looking for a reason to get another BrickHeadz character, show some love this Saint Valentine's Day!
4.3 / 5 by LEGO Shop THE LEGO® MOVIE 2™ accessory set #853865 comes with 48 pieces. 4 figures, Emmet, Apocalypseburg citizen, and two sewer babies. I have been wanting a set with the sewer babies ever since I first watched the trailer for The Lego Movie 2. They do not disappoint. The set has a build of the remains of a car as well as stud shooter. The citizen has the run down look with new prints on figure. Emmet has to options for his face expressions, fear and happy. Then we have the sewer babies, they have been dressed up in the latest Apocalypseburg baby wear with each having a unique face print. The new sewer babies arms and hands do not move however the head will move and come's off. The hands are molded so they can not hold anything. The babies will fit on one stud. Over all I was happy with this set with the exception of getting another Emmet figure. I think putting in another random citizen figure would have been better. With two different citizens you could have change up the figures build using the head, torso, legs etc. This would have given the set more appeal for expanding your population building in Apocalypseburg . Normally I would have bought multiple sets just so I could have made up more random citizens. With the set as it is now I only needed to buy one. I would recommend picking up this set as it will be very popular for Lego builders of all ages (6+). Happy Building Everyone.
5 / 5 by LEGO Shop I have a 4 year old son that has been a major Lego fan for over 2 years! He out grew PAW Patrol before Lego. This set has blown my mind! We have the Police set and different cars but the Light and Sounds feature for the police truck makes this set all WORTH it! With new ideas of involving the minifigures more and more with each set. The jetpack for the police officers is just the coolest! It makes play time for extended periods of time and my son has become an expert builder as the design is sturdy and if it falls and breaks (toddler ooppss!) He has no issue rebuilding it! The "bad guys" airplane is an amazing design. I highly recommend to add to your Lego collection!
