Scratchy with a lumberjack axe
Chief Wiggum with a billy club and a megaphone
Mr. Burns with the Three Eyed Fish, Blinky, in a bowl and a radioactive bar
This is the first licensed minifigures series that is based on a TV show. All the minifigures in this series has molded head instead of the standard LEGO head. Personally I’m not a huge fan of molded head minifigures. But the series does come with some interesting accessories for the minifigures like toolbox, lumberjack axe, pie and donut. There is a DONUT!!! How cool is that?
And perhaps the most interesting minifigure in the series is Maggie Simpson. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first time we have a minifigure of a baby. There’s not leg for the minifig. Just body and head. A great piece to have if you like to customise your LEGO Minifigures.
The Simpsons Minifigures Series is now available in Singapore. Each blind pack cost S$4.90. I’m surprised that they are retailing at the same price as the normal Minifigures. If I’m not mistaken, most countries are selling this at a higher price.

I seldom get excited about the Creator series. But the recently announced LEGO Fairground Mixer blew my mind away.
Everything from the Fairground can be loaded onto 2 trucks just like a real life roving carnival. The set includes a high striker, dunk tank, ticket booth and a working Fairground Mixer ride with crank operation. You can even upgrade the mixer ride with LEGO Power Functions motors.
The LEGO Creator Fairground Mixer set contain 1,746 pieces and comes with beautiful 12 minifigures. A juggling man on stilts, dunk tank lady, strong man challenger, ticket lady, truck driver, ride operator, 2 women, 2 girls, 2 boys and a queasy man. My favorite is the queasy man. Love the face printing.

The LEGO Creator Fairground Mixer set will be available in June 2014 and retail at US$$149.99.

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.

We’ve been hearing rumors that LEGO will be releasing The Simpsons set for some time already. We even seen leaked images of Homer and Ned Flanders. Well, it is official. LEGO will be releasing The Simpsons House later this year.

The Simpsons House will come with 6 minifigures: Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and Ned Flanders. The massive 2 storey house comes with a detachable garage. You get everything from the Simpsons family. Even comes with the family car which can fit 4 minifigures. And no Simpsons house is complete without the iconic living room couch infront of the TV.
The house measures over 23cm high, 42cm wide, 24cm deep and users more than 2500 LEGO pieces. The Simpsons House will costs US$200 in the US.
Personally I’m not a huge fan of The Simpsons minifigures. But the house is beautiful.

I’m not a fan of LEGO Architecture series. But I must say that I’m happy and proud to see Marina Bay Sands as one of the building featured in the series.
Voted as one of the most inspiring structures of recent times through an online poll on the LEGO Architecture website, this model focuses on the signature hotel complex that showcases the three towers and the Sands Skypark. The integrated resort, designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie, opened in April 2010 and has welcomed 38.5 million visitors in 2012 alone. The 602-piece LEGO version was designed by Rok Kobe.
The Marina Bay Sands LEGO Architecture is a limited edition set. You can now purchase it at Marina Bay Sands Hotel gift shop, located at Tower 2 hotel lobby, ArtScience Museum Shop and selected LEGO retailers in Asia, while stocks last. Retail at S$89.90 in Singapore.
