Adventure Time Lego

dscf4718

The second that I saw this Lego Adventure Time set existed I just had to order it. At the moment it’s only available at the Lego Store.

It was brought to life by a lot of Lego Ideas votes. It’s so cool that there is a site where you can submit your own ideas and if people like them they can become real sets.

The set was separated into 3 bags with 2-3 characters in each.

dscf4728

They were fairly easy to build so I did the whole thing in one go.

My favourite was Ice King because I loved the details of the jewel in his crown and the snowflakes in his hands.

Lady Rainicorn was a fun build with a bendable body.

Since they aren’t mini figures they were larger than I expected, so had to make more room on the shelf! This is definitely a must-have set for a Lego & Adventure Time fan.

Mini Block Bulbasaur

DSCF2799

I found this adorable tiny block Bulbasaur at Mr. Pen in Toronto.

DSCF2800

I found this one easier to build than the other tiny block sets I’ve purchased. There were even pieces to build a Pokeball included.

DSCF2801

Look at that tiny Bulbasaur.

DSCF2802

And Pokeball.

DSCF2804

This was one of my favourite yet. I hope to find a Pikachu set some day!

Mini Block Dragonite

DSCF0007

I found this mini Dragonite at Mr Pen. I think it may be by the same makers as the mini 7-Eleven I built. It’s very similar in quality to the official nanoblock Eevee that is also in my collection.

DSCF0008

The blocks are small and the same size as all the other micro-sets I own. There are plenty of extra pieces in case one got lost.

DSCF0009

What I found slightly confusing with this particular set of instructions was that only the current steps blocks were coloured, so you couldn’t really compare it to the layer below. This one was a bit delicate and I broke the wing a couple of times while trying to build it.

DSCF0281

Rawr. Look at how adorable he is when built! I was surprised the wings didn’t tip him backwards due to weight.

DSCF0282

I guess his giant chibi head helps! I hope next time I visit the store they have Pikachu.

 

 

Mini 7-Eleven

DSCF9284

I found this adorable miniblock 7-Eleven at Mr. Pen in Koreatown  and couldn’t resist!

DSCF9287

It’s 273 pieces and unlike most lego building instructions the only coloured parts are part that you are currently working on. It can be confusing at first but it actually makes a lot more sense. This didn’t take too long to build, but I was missing a clear piece that I substituted for another piece and it turned out fine.

DSCF9292

Tada! It’s so tiny.

DSCF9293

My hand for comparison.

DSCF9294

Here’s the Lego Kwik-E-Mart for sizing. It looks like it could swallow it up!

Nanoblock Eevee

DSCF8441

I needed to calm some anxieties down this weekend and I found that building things with instructions and a final product help a lot. This is why colouring doesn’t. It doesn’t really have instructions so I end up thinking too much about it. Anyways, I found this adorable Nanoblock Eevee online!

DSCF7882

There were over 130 super tiny pieces.

DSCF8439

The instructions had very little words and were a bit hard to follow at first. I found the best way to follow where to put what was to start from the easiest place and match the patterns (sometimes it’s unclear what is pointing to where). Plus I don’t know how anyone with hands bigger than mine would do this as the pieces are so delicately small!

DSCF8445

Tada! Here is my hand for size comparison. The good thing is if you lost a piece it includes extras of everything.

Lego Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart

DSCF3728Recently, I finished building the Lego Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart.
DSCF5877

This set was more detailed and fun to build than the Lego Simpsons House. There were so many tiny parts and fun features including a frozen Jasper in the fridge. Here are some photos as I was building it:

Lego Simpsons House

DSCF3730

My first lego set ever was this limited edition Lego Simpsons House. Prior to this I’ve never owned or built any set from start to finish. I’m a huge fan of The Simpsons so when I found out they were releasing the house I was super excited.

DSCF2354

I ordered it from Amazon and the box was huge!
DSCF2355
Here’s the back.

DSCF2364 DSCF2365

There were 7 parts to the house and 3 booklets worth of instructions. It took me around 3 weeks to build, mostly because I don’t have a lot of time to do it consecutively. It was a super relaxing process though, and took my mind offline.

DSCF3735

It’s so super detailed and looks exactly like the house on the show!

Here are some photos of the inside details in order of how they were built:

Our First Lego Minifigs

DSCF2274

When I was a kid, I didn’t have much lego. They were expensive so it wasn’t something my parent’s prioritized in buying us. As an adult, I love to build (and collect) things and Lego appeals to all ages. We randomly bought some Lego Simpsons mini figures (I love the Simpsons).

DSCF2276

Nash and I ended up with date night Marge and Smithers! But now this has started an addiction and I actually compulsively ordered the Lego Simpsons House on Amazon. I can’t wait to build it. Building things together is an awesome date idea and my order can’t come soon enough!
