Brick Battle: LEGO Ninja Turtles (2013 vs. 2014)

This is going to be a pretty interactive post, as we are going to do 5 Brick Battles pitting the 2013 TMNT sets against the recently released 2014 TMNT sets. Upon the release of the 2014 sets we noticed how similar the 2014 wave of TMNT sets were to their 2013 counterparts. Below you will find pictures and polls for each of the battles. Cast your vote and then tell us in the comments why you voted the way that you did.

LEGO Super Star Destroyer is Retired

After visiting my local LEGO Store today to take advantage of the double VIP points, I discovered that the LEGO Super Star Destroyer is retiring. They did still have a few in stock (although 1 less than they had when I got there). Now, if you have your eye on this set, get to your store NOW! Retail price is $400 and once your local LEGO store is out, that will be it. We anticipate that this set will reach $1000 on eBay within a year. Amazon does still have many of these in stock at retail price, but those may not last long either now that we’ve let the cat out of the bag.
