I finally got out to see the Lego Movie with my daughter. We were supposed to see it weeks ago as part of a classmates birthday party, but my daughter was sick that week and we have been busy every weekend since. While I do not use the Kragle, I do have my sets separated by type and kept far away from the kids set. Ofcourse I have no where near the layout that appears in the movie as I have many other hobbies (and not that much money).
I certainly do not use the legos in the same imaginative way my daughter does (or I used to as a kid). Lego models have actually gotten so good at building that specific thing that it seems that is all the each set is for, but maybe we need to release the Krakens (kids) on the sets for some more fun (after I get the pictures for reviews at least).

Just like the issue facing Fantasy Flight Games with their X-Wing Miniature games, the lego company has to deal with the fact that the core movie Star Wars universe has a pretty limited selection of things to make as a product. Today we look at the most recent version of the A-Wing from the Lego Star Wars series. If I can recall this is the 4th A-Wing, they have produced. As a big fan of the A-Wing from the X-Wing series of computer games and the fact that it is generally a cheaper ship, I now have 3 of these from different releases.

Another look at the Games Day Blood Bowl Lizardmen Team. Previously I showed the skinks and Krox, so today I will go through the Saurus which are all 5 unique. Again you are one short of the proper amount for the team and the replacements since this was a limited run are costly.
Lots of detail on these so I have a ton of pictures of them. I have the models in no specific order so we will just go through them.

All this talk of knights and stuff got me in the mood for a little hobby stuff so I pulled out the paints and some GW models. I takes some work to set up for painting so not much really got done but it was interesting having the stuff out again. Do you see the models?

Today is the last day for the Dream Forge Games Sale on their Leviathans and accessories. You can get 1 of each of the two designs plus one extra ranged weapon of your choice for just over 200 dollars shipped in the US. That gives you 2 ranged weapons (right handed rotary cannon and another of your choice) and 3 close combat weapons (plasma sword, right handed fist, and death sickle). Seems like a pretty solid deal for 8.5 inch models that have a high degree of positioning options. The design is a little strip down compared to GW standard high gothic but it is more realistic in terms of war engines are not there to be things of beauty but to kill stuff.
Two of these is too much new modeling for me personally right now but I would love to see a setup from them in the future where you pick you core body and then any two weapons for about 100 plus shipping. They will still be under selling even discounted GW stuff and essentially have all the customization you really need. Dream Forge Games has report that the response to the sale has been great and he expects to have all the product inbound by mid march so if you are ordering now you will have to wait a little bit to get you big mecha action started.

I added most of my X-Wing Miniature game content to an index page on the right column there. This is sort of like what you get if you just use the keyword but it loads in a single shorter page so you can look at all the different posts. Noticed that I missed reviewing the X-Wing expansion and the tie bomber.

Due to all the commotion with the new imperial knights model, I was looking through the GW 40K online store for the first time in a while. I followed the Space Marines release pretty closely, buying nothing, then pretty much ignored everything since. I remember hearing that new nids were released and seeing a couple of pictures on various blogs so I went to take a look.
