New Monster Fighter Sets Are Out!

These seven new sets look very good. I'm particuly interested in the unique pieces to monsters like:
the werewolf's head, swamp creatures head piece, and the ghosts in the Ghost Train. I see that Lego is reusing different minifigures, like the evil scientist series 4 is used in the The Crazy Scientist & His Monster, and the old castle ghost is much used in the Ghost Train, the mummy from series 3 is used in The Mummy. Well that's enough about the minifigures, most of the buildings look great, but I'm not sure if the small set Swamp Creature 9461 counts as a building.

Lego Lord of the Rings Is Almost Out!

Lego Lord of the Rings has brought a new item into our already overflowing Lego bins, a pose able horse! This new piece will help us do so much more in mocs like have the horse rear up in front of a person, and makes the set seem more life-like. This set is 83 pieces, is built much like the carriage from Kingdoms Set 7189 Mill Village Raid. I'm going to be getting some of the Lord of the Rings small sets, to get some pieces, but nothing big bucks (I might be tempted), but they sure look great!

On the left is the new Lord of the Rings Gandalf Arrives set with the new pose able horse, and on the right we have the regular horse from Kingdoms Prison Carriage.

Lego Marvel Bionicle Superheroes are Released!

In addition to the new Marvel Superheroes that Lego has created, they have created some bionicle versions of the characters, inculding the figures: Iron Man, The Hulk, and Captain America.  These bionicles are about 40 pieces each, they look pretty good, but Lego should still complete the set by adding: Hawk Eye, Black Widow,  Looki, and Thor.
