LEGO Masters, As Told By Kotaku

According to Kotaku, which has a section of their site dedicated to toys, LEGO Masters is "an incredible showcase of talent". They go into detail about how the show works, and how much of a "reality" show it is. With the exception of the immunity brick they compare it to Great British Bake Off but with more time to prepare creations. Kotaku described the process of deciding the bottom ranked team this week as "splitting hairs". Forum link.

The model is valued at 12.99 USD, more than 25% of the minimum purchase, not a bad deal if you ask me. Forum link.

New Marvel Mechs Are Almost Micro BIONICLE Sets
Posted by Richard on January 15, 2020 at 04:14 PM CST:
There was much to like and hate about BIONCLE®'s last incarnation as CCBS sets, but I feel like it could have done better if they took it to a smaller scale. The new LEGO® Marvel mechs like the ones for Iron Man, Spider Man, and Thanos are actually more articulated than some BIONICLE sets were, and only $9.99 USD. It's hard to believe The LEGO Group managed this much articulation and part count for the same MSRP that brought us the somewhat lacking Nexo Knight battle suits. Forum link.
