4184 Black Pearl

Who has never railed against the LEGO instructions on which it is often difficult to distinguish the Black du Dark Grey ? On the small sets, we can still get by with a little sorting and deduction, but on the bigger ones, how many of us have reversed two parts only to realize it much later and have to take everything apart? to restore it ...

After a long test phase with the little ones, LEGO has finally responded to the many complaints of its customers on this subject by finding a solution that seems satisfactory: the black parts will now be darker and surrounded by a pale gray border on the instruction booklets.

This new signage was offered for the first time with the set 2506 Ninjago Skull Truck before being officially set up with the set 4184 Black Pearl (above). It will be present across the entire LEGO range from January 1, 2012.

A good initiative that will save us a few precious minutes in the assembly of our sets and which solves a problem that has become really annoying on the most complex sets. Below is a page of the set instruction booklet 7915 Imperial V-Wing Starfighter with the old signage.

Omar Ovalle - Impulse Sets

We continue with Omar ovalle who offers a mini-series of impulse sets with a minifigure, his weapon, and a piece of land to stage it.

We thus find a Snowtrooper, a Stormtrooper and a Scouttrooper, each in their environment and all equipped with a rocket launcher.  

Joli the packaging and an interesting format to build armies of minifigs, Omar Ovalle finally offers something here that could very well be marketed with real marketing logic ...

I say that 6.90 €, it can even sell ...

Who has the biggest one?

The Internet will always amaze me ...

The video below is from a certain tehrulate who films his army of clones and who claims to have more than 1800, more than the record of Legoboy12345678 whose army has 1712.

You did not understand the sentence above. It's normal. I'm finding out that we are fighting on Youtube to get the title of the one with the biggest army of clones and I don't really know what to think about it.

The worst part is that the two fanatics harangue each other via the comments of their respective videos and each has its fans and supporters. And if you look a little further, dozens of similar videos are posted on Youtube.

A little surprising, pathetic, but so many clones, it's still very cool actually ....

Artifex offers us other reviews in pictures of the new LEGO Super Heroes, while waiting for them to be available from us and it's starting to be long ...

The undeniable advantage of these reviews lies in the fact that in less than 3 minutes, you have toured the set, its minifigs, its assembly and its features. For the rest, you are free to form an opinion on the quality of the whole in full knowledge of the facts.

As I said previously, I'm a little jaded by Anglo-Saxon reviews, where everything is decidedly  awesome, gorgeous, brilliant and so on ... I also want to discover the set in pictures and the minifigs in detail without being entitled to the checkered tablecloth in the kitchen or the carpet in the living room of the guy doing the review ...
