We are just entering March 2014 and many LEGO collectors are already declaring this as the best LEGO set for 2014. And it’s no surprise. The LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059) looks amazing. Standing at 24cm high, 48cm long and 16cm wide, the 3,296 pieces new Sandcrawler is significantly bigger and more majestic than the previous one released in 2005.
Features 8 tracks with steering function, lowering front ramp, opening side flaps, removable top, working cranes, speeder bike, opening hatch for easy access to the boxes, attachable handles for lifting boxes, and a detailed interior including engine bay, storage bay and cockpit.
The Sandcrawler comes with 7 minifigures: Luke Skywalker, Uncle Owen, C-3PO and 4 Jawas, plus R2-D2, R2 unit, an R1-series Droid, Gonk Droid, R5-D4 and a Treadwell Droid. I love the Jawas minifigures and it’s cool that they include 4 of them in the set. The new printing on R2-D2 looks beautiful and C-3P0 leg printing too.
The LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059) will be retailing at US$299.99 and is expected to be released on May 2014.

microSD card format came a long way. Launched in 2004, the original microSD card only has 128MB storage space. It is hard to image how SanDisk managed to squeeze 128GB storage space into a microSDXC memory card. But they did.
To enable 128GB of storage on a removable microSD card, SanDisk developed an innovative proprietary technique that allows for 16 memory die to be vertically stacked, each shaved to be thinner than a strand of hair.
The SanDisk 128GB Ultra microSDXC memory card is great for Android smartphones and GoPro camera.
The 128GB Ultra microSDXC is now available in Singapore at S$199.

In case you didn’t hear about it, the Creative Sound Blaster Roar SR20 was selling like hotcakes during the recent IT Show. Going at a promo price of $199, the Sound Blaster Roar was sold out everyday by mid afternoon. Creative said that 1 Sound Blaster Roar was sold every minute.
I managed to try out the Sound Blaster Roar at the crowded Creative IT Show booth last weekend and I’m impressed by the sound quality. Don’t take my words for it. Go to the stores and try it yourself. This might be Creative’s comeback.
The original retail price for the Creative Sound Blaster Roar SR20 is S$338. Creative is selling it at a special promo price of S$199 during the IT Show and will be extending this pricing till 10 March 2014 on their online store.
