    So I heard about the 3 Incredibles 2 sets.

    Too bad, there is no Frozone. Yet the sets don't mention Edna.

    Had TRU price match Walmart for the Black Panther sets, had an expiring reward and a leftover gift card from Christmas so I only spent $3 out of pocket!

    Here's a review of the Thanos Ultimate Battle set;

    There reviewer also shows both Guardian ships from the line combined:


    I have to say, it actually looks awesome.

    Ah, vintage LEGO Town Police HQ.
    I feel like if I had it, I'd have a hard time not making a custom Brickster minifig for the jail cell (since the Police HQ in LEGO Island was based on that set)

    Well... after missing out on the initial sale in September (mainly because I forgot about it until a couple of days later...), I finally managed to get hold of one of these a couple of weeks ago when John Lewis got them in stock...

    It's about 90% cardboard boxes...

    Starting last Wednesday and finishing today, it took a total of seven sessions across six days (no progress on Saturday).

    Pictures from the end of most steps (I think I missed one)...

    I have no idea where I'm going to put this :)  I was going to put it up on the wall like the DeAgostini one I have, but there aren't any obvious places to attach mounts :(

    Awesome! There are instructions floating around for a stand that holds it up at and angle. Not quite a wall mount but would save some space.

    Nice! Brings back memories of building mine. I threw the box out. It’s nice but takes up too much space and honestly will never go back in the box again and I’ll never sell it.

    I hope they save it for after the film has been out a few weeks. Don't wait to spoil anything major this early.

    I watched all of the IW reviews to see the sets in detail, but I had to mute him a few times. Leave it to Ross to whine and complain about every tiny detail.

    I especially love it when he says this minifig's face looks nothing like this actor." /s

    Supergiant or I riot.

    God it's so beautiful. Wish I could have floated the cost for the Falcon...
