The design appeared twice in the movie and the film’s production designer described it as a car boasting “Lamborghini lines combined with tank functions: an armored riot control vehicle, complete with machine guns shooting rubber bullets and a large cannon mounted on the front.” Featuring authentic details and decoration, this is a must-have for both Batman and Hot Wheels collectors.
Just something that’s always made me wonder. The Technic figures from the Competition line and other Technic sets were very good figures IMO. They had great pose ability for the time and they acted as your pilots for you Technic vehicles. I know some later Technic sets could have been better with a Technic figure added. So why did Lego stop making them?
Batman and Robin are holding Poison Ivy at the Batcave. But look out. Bane has broken into the Batcave in his awesome spinning drill tank and is trying to rescue Poison Ivy. Help Batman and Robin put Bane back behind bars where he belongs. Includes minifigures: Bruce Wayne, Batman, Robin, Poison Ivy and Bane.
Brilliant to use the shield as a trowel for the BRICKLAYER. I’ve lifted the idea for a carpenter’s workstation and changed it a bit. I’ve created a workbench on the mezzanine floor inspired by this idea. Also the ‘plate compactor’ being used on the pavement is from 7746-1 from 2009.
For the grown-up comic book fan, we present the S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier, which will carry all your mini super heroes into an epic battle. It’s the perfect complement to Lego’s Avenger base set and, with over 3,000 pieces, it will take some time to build.
I first saw this Lego set on the Lego website and instantly fell in love with it. At first I could not justify the steep price but after a few shots of Lagavulin 16, drunk me thought it was a great idea. This was my first large set that I have constructed and let me tell you, it was a blast to see the ingenuity that went into planning out the design. When I received it in the mail I was as giddy as a 29 year old engineer who likes whiskey and Legos. I opened the box and separated the bags. I pulled the coffee table close as I carefully opened the bags and started my adventure. It took a few hours over a few days to complete but when I was done I felt a sense of pride I had not felt since I thought of giving my leftovers to that homeless person that one time. Best enjoyed with smooth jazz, some candles, and a single malt scotch.
The Assembly Square ground level features a bakery with counter, cash register, shelves, opening oven, wedding cake and assorted buildable pastries and treats; a florist’s shop with counter, cash register, garden tools, flower arrangements, bouquets and a blue and yellow macaw parrot element; and a café with espresso machine, counter, bench seating and pie elements. The middle level features a music store with a buildable drum set, two guitars and saxophone element; photo studio with a “antique” large format bellows camera atop an adjustable tripod; and a dental office with buildable reclining chair, waiting area, telephone and a sink. The upper level features a dance studio with buildable piano and reflective mirror element; an apartment with buildable foldout sofa bed, detailed kitchen, toilet, micro LEGO® train, modular buildings and Eiffel Tower, and access to a rooftop terrace with buildable barbecue, table and a neglected plant.
Fair enough, and before the internet I think that would be a valid point. I personally cannot see how paying more makes collecting more fun? Its not like you work harder (other than for your money) to buy it. Instead of buying from one web site you just buy from another.
Lego pneumatics offer the opportunity to learn and experiment with the principles of pneumatics and control circuits. Advanced use of Lego pneumatics has been made in various Lego Mindstorms creations.
One of the most popular and sought-after superheroes for both children and adults is the crime-fighting and deep-voiced Dark Knight. Batman isn’t going out of style anytime soon and neither are the toys and games that don his course, in the coming years we hope Lego adds many more buildings to this modular town as it is still missing many community basics, such as a library, post office, school, church, hospital, doctor/dentist offices, museum, police station, etc!
-the box was a little bit dented, but for an item that’s out of production that can happen. I don’t keep my boxes, anyway, so I didn’t feel the need to ding the rating, but for those who do, just know that damage to the box is a very real possibility.
I suspect this ultimately still boils down to what I said in my first post. If it’s harder to produce but people are not willing to pay more money for it, what’s the point? I find myself as well being not terribly interested in the Technic figures, while I love Technic. Yet I do like minifigs. But it feels like the figures are just not needed in the models.

Space Port was released four years after Launch Command and is often seen as a continuation of that theme due to its similar logo and status as a Lego Town Subtheme. Space Port took the Launch Command concept and expanded upon it into new areas such as astronaut training and scientific experiments. The Space Port theme took a slightly less realistic approach to set design compared to Launch command, and some sets featured special Light & Sound bricks to enhance playability.
Mindstorms, a LEGO line of robotic products, also uses a large number of TECHNIC pieces, although it is sold as a separate line of products. Both the Mindstorms NXT (August 2006) and EV3 (2013) are based on the stud-less construction method.
I bought this for my grandson, and my Son says he loved it, that they put it together in one day and he just thought it was the neatest thing. So this is great for any 6-7 year old as a gift. But best to have an adult to help with some of the harder parts. I have 4 Grandsons and all of them are in love with Legos so anything new they will just love.
Green Grocer differs from the previous two sets in the series because it has a greater level of detail inside. Whereas Café Corner and Market Street had bare interiors, each floor in Green Grocer contains a prop such as a standup radiator or some furniture such as a grandfather clock. The first floor is fully furnished as a grocery store, with refrigerated shelves with opening doors and cartons of food. The assortment of Lego food pieces in the grocery includes carrots, apples and bananas. There’s also a stairway to the apartment above, and a mailbox set with letters.
So what do these box redesigns tell us about the modular buildings series? Well, the simplest conclusion to draw is that the Palace Cinema, Parisian Restaurant, and Detective’s Office are here to stay and the Pet Shop is likely retiring soon. After all, why would LEGO update the boxes of sets just to retire them immediately after? And similarly, why would the Pet Shop be the lone modular using an old box design?
I completely understand your point Rabbit, and your right, I do like that sets hold their value, and even increase over time. Being an adult and having extra money affords me the benefit of buying more than most. As a collector though, and having no intention of ever selling, I could care less if everyone had every set. I do it to relax and enjoy, not for profit. Again, I am not knocking those that do it for profit but there are many sides to every discussion. So to sum up, for me I wouldnt mind sets being more readily available.
The Tumbler is a challenging build, with 1,869 mostly black pieces. It’s an intricate design, modelled after the Tumbler seen in The Dark Knight trilogy, and comes in at over 5” high, 15” long and 9” wide. It has an armored exterior, adjustable top wings, a detailed interior, and huge rubber-tread racing tires, as well as exclusive Batman and Joker minifigures.
A video game developed by TT Fusion called Lego City Undercover was released for the Wii U on March 18, 2013; a port of the game was released April 4, 2017 on Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A prequel to the game was also released for the Nintendo 3DS on April 21, 2013. Lego City content, based on Lego City Undercover, was added to the toys-to-life video game Lego Dimensions on May 9, 2017, via a “fun pack” containing a Chase McCain minifigure and a constructible Police Helicopter.

Love this camper set! Really cool for an adult collector. Unique pieces make this a must have. Would give 5 star rating if i felt the price / value ratio was slightly better, but still absolutely love this set. The side window on the camper offers a view of the extreme detail inside the camper. I get many compliments from adults on this set – and that is who i think should buy this set. Children may find the camper underwhelming so for the price might be better to avoid if you are buying for a youngster. Overall, i love this set, it fits in beautifully with an outdoor / camping scene, would prefer more pieces or a slightly lower price, would not recommend for children.
You specifically excluded price to piece ratio from your assessment of them being overpriced, but to me, that’s far and away the most pertinent measure. Factors not intrinsic to the bricks, such as third party licensing and packaging (Architecture series) would constitute examples where sets become overpriced relative to sets without those features. Intrinsically, I could understand the argument that the increased specialization of parts translates to a higher overall price to piece ratio, as well. But I just don’t follow the logic that a change in scale which necessitates more parts is equivalent to overpricing.
This classic three-storey town hall building is the latest addition to the LEGO Modular Buildings series. This highly-detailed model features large entrance-way columns and coat of arms, a tall bell tower with clock and a large skylight giving a view inside the building. On the ground floor, the large hall, tax office and auditorium are perfect for servicing the town’s citizens. Take the working elevator up to the secretary and mayor’s offices on the second floor, furnished eloquently with desks, chairs, paintings and even a frog sculpture. There’s even a balcony for addressing the town’s citizens. On the third floor, a spacious meeting room features a large conference table, chairs, globe and plants. Includes 8 minifigures: mayor, secretary, bride and groom, press woman, janitor and 2 children.
I have all the sets except Market Street. I also have an extra Green Grocer MISB. I am so fortunate that I bought the Cafe Corner when I did. It had already been discontinued when I purchased it at the LEGO store. A fluke. My advice to all of you that don’t have the Cafe Corner or an unlimited income…. Move on with your Lego life. The Green Grocer is still somewhat attainable. Every time you look over at the Fire Brigade, Grand Emporium, and now the Pet Shop you will be reminded of what could have been.
