Forget Prime Day, Smyths Has Knocked £50 off the Giant Lego Hogwarts

Prime Day is drawing to a close, but the one thing we've been quite upset about is the lack of money off Lego. Usually Amazon has a number of nice-looking sets to flog, but this time it's basically just one - the 20th anniversary Slave I. But we're always on the lookout for an extra Lego bargain, and we just spotted Smyths has knocked £50 off the giant Lego Hogwarts. So now it's £300 instead of £350. Read More >>

Lego Star Wars BOOST Droid Commander Sets Gets Surprise Early Release for Prime Day

Back in May Lego made an early announcement for Star Wars day, promising that there would be a Star Wars-themed version of the Lego BOOST robotics set arriving in September. But September was a long way off, and it seems Lego got sick of keeping it in storage for another couple of months. So Droid Commander has come early, like some sort of Prime Day miracle.

Lego’s Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage is a Beautiful Beast

Lego's Jurassic World sets have been around for a while, but so far they've always been aimed at kids. Despite some of them being on the expensive side, the models have always been fairly simple and they've revolved around the piddly plastic dinosaurs. I'm not knocking them; there's nothing wrong with those piddly plastic dinosaurs. Or at least there wasn't, until I feasted my eyes on Lego's latest Jurassic World set: the T. Rex Rampage. It's a 3,120 piece beast comprising of a brick-built dinosaur and a huge replica of the iconic Jurassic Park gates. Read More >>

Lego Stranger Things ‘The Upside Down’ Review: Technical Brilliance, With an Unfortunately Tedious Build

It's been a couple of months since Lego released the Stranger Things-themed set 'The Upside Down', featuring what it probably Lego's most mature-oriented licensing deal yet. It's a set that features two different version of the Byers' house from the show, one in the real world and one in the dark parallel dimension of the Upside Down. And the Upside Down is literally upside down, attached to the bottom of its real world counterpart. Read More >>
