Here's a list of the reviews that we've published recently:

31206 Art The Rolling Stones

The iconic (and sizable) Rolling Stones logo in a great display format

31132 Creator Viking Ship and the Midgard Serpent

A fantastic revival of a beloved theme with a decent sized model great for display and play alike.

71772 Ninjago The Crystal King

The Crystal King represents another fun addition to the menagerie of NINJAGO beasts!

30434 Speed Champions Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro

The last time I reviewed an Art set, I tried to fit as many references to the artist as I could. Memories from that did not fade away, so when 31206 The Rolling Stones set was announced, the hand of fate that is Huw wasted no time in telling me what to do.

The set is a departure from previous sets in the Art line, so I had no expectations as to what the build experience would be like. The only part I had mixed emotions about was – where would I display it?

One of the more anticipated sets in the Creator line this year is 31132 Viking Ship and the Midgard Serpent; like last year's 31120 Medieval Castle and 31109 Pirate Ship, it's a modern recreation of a classic LEGO theme. The original Vikings theme gave us just seven sets over two years back in 2005–2006, and LEGO building techniques have come a long way since then!

In fact, 31132 Viking Ship and the Midgard Serpent seems to be an updated version of 7018 Viking Ship challenges the Midgard Serpent, even down to the name. At double the pieces, it includes a Viking longship, an enormous sea serpent, as well as two alternate models of a Viking house and Fenris, a large wolf from Norse mythology.

This article introduces the six teams following their appearances in the first two episodes. The winning teams from each episode's challenge gained an advantage.

To avoid spoilers for those of you who have yet to watch these episodes, I'll refrain from identifying them until after the break.

Countless spectacular monsters have appeared since NINJAGO was launched, although nothing resembles 71772 The Crystal King! The shadowy colour scheme seems rather intimidating, while the centaur-like design varies from comparable creatures.

However, the impressive organic shaping which has become common among NINJAGO dragons and other animals remains notably effective, balanced with sharp crystalline details. This design therefore stands out among the new sets.

Since Speed Champions transitioned to 8-wide cars in 2020, a polybag version of one of vehicles has also been produced each year. This year it's 30434 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, a smaller rendition of the lime green hypercar in the Aston Martin double-pack 76910.

Availability of the polybag is patchy, but it's now available in the UK in independent toy shops, and I am indebted to Matt at Automattic Comics in Corsham, Wiltshire for sending me a couple for my collection

Various interesting subjects have inspired LEGO models and yielded some decidedly unexpected partnerships. 10302 Optimus Prime presents an incredible example, since developing this heroic Transformer involved collaboration with Hasbro and Takara Tomy!

While surprising, this appealing rendition of the beloved Autobot leader looks absolutely spectacular and captures important details from the Generation 1 design. The famous robot and vehicle modes certainly appear impressive, while the transformation balances inspiration from the original Hasbro toy and the animated series.

After yesterday's teaser and subsequent debacle, the press release for 10302 Optimus Prime has been published:

10302 Optimus Prime
1,508 pieces, rated 18+
£149.99 / $169.99 / 169.99€
Available from from 1st June

Billund, Denmark May 12th: Leading global toy companies, the LEGO Group and Hasbro, Inc. unite for the first time to bring the iconic Transformers Autobot, Optimus Prime, to life in LEGO form – complete with alt mode. The new LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime set is a tribute to the heroic Autobot leader with over 1,500 detailed LEGO pieces. Once assembled, the figure features 19 points of articulation that allow fans to convert from robot to truck alt mode and back again. This is one of the first times a LEGO set has been able to convert between two models, without the need to rebuild.

The new LEGO set will transport fans back to 1984 to when Transformers first exploded into popular culture with the original toy line and animated TV series. Modelled after the G1 Optimus Prime character, the new LEGO set includes remarkable attention to detail and features such as the ion blaster, Energon axe, an Energon Cube and the Autobot Matrix of Leadership which can be stored in the chest chamber.
