A Return to Lego-ing


It’s been quite awhile since I’d bought or assembled any Lego sets. I’ve bought several “mini sets”–those ones in the plastic packets that tend to be in the novelty aisle for Easter baskets, Christmas stockings, Trick or treat goodies, etc or just in the checkout lanes.

But the urge finally hit strongly enough to actually do some assembly.

Firstly, this ice-bear mech. I’m absolutely a sucker for Lego mechs, and this one was quite fun to put together. Quick, simple, looks cool…I even bought a second one just for the heckuvit, to repeat the experience and have a second one with things. It’s small enough, and I don’t’ know the actual Legend of Chima story stuff enough to know if it makes sense story-wise. But I like it. I put this one together on part of a lunch-break at work, and am thinking I may shift more Lego-ing to work lunches.

This one hardly got a second thought, given it’s a mech and a medium set–not tiny, not huge and expensive.

I probably spent a bit over an hour assembling this one, not too long at all, but not terribly quick.

I much prefer the thing in this “mode,” with the “sword wings” folded down.

There’s a Batman mech in a $50 set that I’m not quite willing to spend that much on, though I’ve been eyeing the thing for a few weeks. I’ll probably get it eventually, but for now, the mech-building itch has been (temporarily) scratched for the first time in over a year.
