Lego 70708 – Hive Crawler

Continuing with the galaxy squad summer wave of sets, the Hive Crawler is another model that will soon be available on stores. It is considerably big with exactly five hundred and sixty pieces which includes the big insectcoid, three mini-figures (Billy Starbeam and Robot Sidekick from the red squad and Alien Mantazoid), a couple of small green larvae and a small craft that ingeniously can split in two.

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

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
