Lego 70706 – Crater Creeper

Definitely you have to have the galaxy squad feeling to achieve the new Crater Creeper. It has absolutely some nice details, a couple of interesting features, two mini-figures (not particularly new…) but overall it’s too much insectoid for a twenty dollars set. You have to own a couple of different squad sets before you buy this one (my humble opinion) otherwise I think that you’ll have the thought. “What do I do with this thing?!”

This new Crater Creeper, that will be released on the next months all over the different markets, has exactly one hundred and seventy one pieces and includes a couple of nice mini-figures (Chuck Stonebreaker and Alien Buggoid), a small flying saucer and of course the big crater creeper.

Lego Galaxy Squad – High Definition pictures of the new summer sets

Although they’re not properly new, mostly thanks to the Lego Events in the beginning of the year, such as for instance Toy Fair, it is always a pleasure to see not only the new high definition images of the summer wave of Galaxy Squad sets with all its details, mini-figures, vehicles, and so on but also their set-boxes which most of the time show all the main features.

In this wave there is not properly a small set. The smallest is the Crater Creeper (70706), a twenty dollar set with hundred and seventy one pieces and two mini-figures. The CLS-89 Eradicator Mech (Lego 70707), belongs to the orange squad and is considerably bigger with four hundred and forty pieces but only two mini-figures. Its retail price will be around the forty dollars.

The Hive Crawler (Lego 70708) is Continue reading

Lego Galaxy Squad and Legends of Chima – New Sets for 2013 Summer

Just like City theme, Galaxy Squad and Legends of Chima have also some great sets to be release next summer. The Squad will present us with four great new sets, an Eradicator Mech (70707), a Hive Crawler (70708) , a crater creeper (70706) which apparently will be the smallest of this wave and finally the big Galactic Titan (70709).

On the other hand, Legends of Chima will present the fans with a huge Lion Chi Temple – 70010 – (I’m rather curious with this one…), a Gorilla Striker (70008), which finally seems to be the entrance of a new animal in the theme, a Combat Lair by Worriz (70009) and finally a twin bike (70007).

All the theme’s sets will be released on 2013, between June and July Continue reading
