NEWS: 75025 Jedi Defender-Class Cruiser Reveled

GrooveBricks has released pictures of the Star Wars: Old Republic MMO Jedi Defender-Class Cruiser.

As  I mentioned in my Fury Class Interceptor review, I’m a fan of the game and I’m excited to see this build come to market!  I’ve even tried to scratch build this myself, so I’m excited to see how LEGO put it together.75025_3-1024x731

Rumor is, the set will release in the June/July time frame.

NEWS: UCS X-Wing (#10240) revealed!

The guys over at LEGO’s Community team blog just posted pictures of the new UCS X-Wing (#10240) set.

20130215-204124

More pictures can be found here.

It’s hard to believe that the original UCS X-Wing (7191) was released 13 years ago. I can’t wait to see the differences.

UPDATE

LEGO has posted the designer video on YouTube:

The change to the wings is huge. If the 7191 set had a problem, it’s the gear mechanism that is in place to hold the wings open. They give out and eventually you can’t close the wings. I like the scissor mechanic that the new one uses.  The new cockpit is also welcome and the engines look super cool.
Here’s the official press release:

Review: Razar’s CHI Raider (#70012)

70012-1As mentioned in my review of Laval’s Royal Fighter, Primus (of BrickCommander), is the set designer for Razar’s CHI Raider. Long time friends, I am thrilled to be able to build his first official LEGO sets. Razar’s CHI Raider, or as I call it, the Raven Mech, rings up at $40 and I’ve been told it’s exclusive to a few stores in the US. The set comes in numbered bags and is built over two books.
