A construction set is a set of standardized pieces that allow for the construction of a variety of different models. The pieces avoid the lead time of manufacturing custom pieces, and of requiring special training or design time to construct complex systems. This makes them suitable for temporary structures, or for use as children's toys. Such as Lego, Mega bloc, Playmobil, Kre-o etc...

LEGO TECHNIC #9398 4X4 Crawler (part 2)

What a perfect time to put this LEGO TECHNIC #9398 4X4 Crawler set together, a huge snow storm just hit Toronto, with inches of snow outside, I rather stay home and find something to do.  First I thought this would take at least 8-10 hours to build but instead it only took me 6 hours, with the same amount of pieces, my LEGO TECHNIC #8043 took me 9 hours to build…  With the IR remote and the 4-wheel drive, this set is fun to build and fun to play with after it is finished, tho I wished it would run a lot faster with 2 motors 😛  Anyways, here is the finished product.

LEGO TECHNIC #9398 4X4 Crawler

LEGO TECHNIC #9398 4X4 Crawler, when this set came out, I wanted it soo bad, but when I looked at the price, I was like woah…  but I finally bought it at the ToysRus at Markville Mall because it was on sale!!!  Really didn’t expect it because I didn’t see it on sale on their web site, but when I saw it at the store, I told myself, “I don’t care, I am soo buying it no matter what!!!”.   Not to mention, not only this set is on sale, actually tons of the Technic series along with some other LEGO sets are on sale right now.  I am not sure when this deal will end but you might want to check those out if you don’t want to miss this rare LEGO deal 😛  Now I just have to find the time to put the whole thing together.

more nanoblocks!!!

Look what I got just before the year 2013, I have just received more nanoblocks, big thanks to Karen for helping me to get these online from Toysrus. You are probably thinking I am kind of leaning towards getting all the nanoblocks that are out there, but no, I am just getting those I like the most, which are the animals series and a few others world building ones.  Well, don’t forget, these are not as expensive than LEGO, the small packages are only $10 each, the big box there (USS Enterprise Aircraft Carrier) is probably the most expensive one out of all, it’s retailed at $170 US I believe but I got that for $70 CAD 😛  Anyways, I am still missing a few that I really like, I will keep searching in the following weeks before they run out soon 😛

nanoblock

Some people might have seen these before because they were originally from Japan but you know what, they are here in North America now!!! Nanoblock is the smallest block toy in the world. This amazingly small micro sized block makes it possible to create more detailed and even smaller projects than what can be made with standard sized blocks. Nanoblock is a stimulating and entertaining hobby material for everybody , especially for grown-ups. The smaller it is,the more realistic the work becomes!!!

I always wanted to get these a long time ago when they were only available online from Japan or Hong Kong, but they are available now in a few place in Toronto.  Not to mention I have a USS Enterprise nanoblock on the way and I am still looking forward to get a few different ones, still looking tho 😛  Thanks to my friend Karen letting me know they are available at Scholar’s ChoiceToysrus and believe it or not, in Indigo too 😀  I am sure you can find them in more places so get them while quantities last, these could be the next big construction toys other than LEGO 😛

LEGO Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano 1:10

The day has come, my LEGO Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano 1:10 is finally here!!!  A little story about this LEGO, it was released back in 2007, a limited edition and there is no way you can find it in stores now.  When it first came out, I really really wanted to get it, but too much thinking made it all gone everywhere and left me only regrets…  The price on ebay was going up everyday so I thought, I would never get a chance to own this…  BUT, many many thanks to Cheryl for hooking me up with this deal, the whole process took a few months because this package was actually from Hong Kong by ship :p  Enough with the talk, time to open this set and enjoy it over the weekend!!!  Woot!!!
