The second post, still to come, will be focusing on the new mask and weapon pieces. And after that, expect some actual set reviews! I've already mostly finished writing the first, and I've recently gotten word that another shipment of sets is headed my way for review. I'm hoping for one of the Protector sets — I could probably spend at least half a post talking about their new blasters alone!
I also realized I never did post my second New Elementary set review here on my blog. It's a review of 70144 Laval's Fire Lion, one of this year's Legends of Chima sets. Check it out here!
It feels really good to be published, even if it's just in a LEGO blog. And I feel like it's going to help me reach more and more opportunities within the LEGO fan community. Years ago, when I was just a shoddy BIONICLE artist who wrote long, rambling posts about silly things and got in lots of arguments, I never would have dreamed of having the kind of reputation within the LEGO fan community that I have now. I still feel starstruck by some of the people I've been able to make connections with in the LEGO fan community and The LEGO Group. Hopefully some of these connections might bring me closer to my dream of actually working for the LEGO Group myself one day.
