LEGO Holiday Gift Guide for those Adults in Your Life

Last year, our LEGO gift guide for Holiday 2020 was heavily focused on kids LEGO franchises like Ninjago, Toy Story, and more. This year, LEGO rolled out a new seeding program for reviewers here in Canada, and while it might have meant less sets to review in total, it did mean we could make more extravagant requests, which we most definitely did.

LEGO Off-Road Buggy Review

We've reviewed a ton of sets in 2021 thanks to our good friends at the LEGO Group, and when I originally reached out to pick up our last review item of 2021, I decided to go in a totally new direction - LEGO Technic. I've reviewed City sets, Ninjago sets, Ideas sets, and more. But I've never purchased a Technic set, let alone reviewed one. So our good friends were able to send the LEGO Off-Road Buggy for review. While only featuring roughly 375 pieces, it was easily the toughest build of 2021.

LEGO Bowser’s Airship Expansion Set

I'm not shy about stating my early opinions of LEGO Super Mario - the entire concept looked really uninteresting, and I saw this being one of LEGO's very rare flops. I didn't want a chunky Mario who played sounds and collected coins. I wanted regular sized Mario minifigures, with other characters like Bowser or the Kooplings built on the same minifig base as Hagrid from Harry Potter or the Hulk from the Avengers. Then I watched my kids play, and I knew I was so very wrong. The latest addition to our LEGO Super Mario collection, Bowser's Airship, is the best ...

LEGO Medieval Blacksmith Review

It is not often that we look at one of the LEGO Ideas sets here on GamesReviews, but LEGO was nice enough to track down the Medieval Blacksmith set for us to review, and although it took a bit of time to find and get it here, it was well worth the wait. This large and detailed set from LEGO brings me back to the days of playing with my castle LEGO sets, complete with knights, peasants, and more. But with the hefty price tag, is this set worth it? Let's dive in!

LEGO Vidiyo Review

Vidiyo from LEGO is their latest physical and digital LEGO product that combines the love of bricks with the love of video making and music. From the get go, the concept feels a bit weird and out of left field, but execution is fantastic. With a bunch of new and unique bricks to collect - many of which will have amazing uses well after the desire to play Vidiyo ends - this is an easy recommendation that may take a small leap of faith.

LEGO Super Mario – Master Your Adventure Maker Set Review

If you've been following our LEGO Super Mario coverage on the site, or have been following me on Twitter over the past few years, you know that when the LEGO Super Mario collection was announced initially, I was incredibly skeptical and a bit vocal on social media about how I thought this LEGO line missed the mark completely with both LEGO and Nintendo fans. You might also remember me eating my words when I received my initial LEGO Group review drop with a few sets from Wave 1, including the starter kit. Now that we are onto Wave 2, I'm completely sold on the ...

Master Your Adventure Maker Set a Good LEGO Buy

If you gave - or received - the Super Mario LEGO starter kit over the holidays, you are probably overwhelmed by the number of additional LEGO set packs you can purchase to supplement what you get with the starter kit. We've purchased and received for a review most of wave one, and really enjoyed what we got. As wave two launches, it's become quite obvious that after the starter kit, purchasing the Master Your Adventure Maker Set is easily the next thing you should buy, unless you are buying purely for displaying.

123 Sesame Street LEGO Ideas Review

LEGO Ideas is one of the greatest things the corporation has done in recent memory, allowing fans to submit their own designs and ultimately picking some of those designs to turn into actual LEGO sets. The majority of these LEGO Ideas sets hit on nostalgia while others just look really, really cool. While a Sesame Street set might seem more appropriate for someone in the 6-12 age range, this LEGO Ideas set is banking on adults fondly remembering their time on Sesame Street as a kid. And after I put my set together, I understood how deeply having this set hits home.

More LEGO Super Mario Launching January 1, 2020

It's hard to really gauge the popularity of specific LEGO sets because so many are produced for consumption. Sure, in unique scenarios, very specific sets sell out, and they sell out quickly. Think about the $800+ LEGO Millennium Falcon, for example. But LEGO Super Mario has always been available, with a few sets going out of stock early on, only to be plentiful now. Things must be going well, however, as LEGO moves to release even more sets in 2021.
