LEGO® Icons review + MOC: 10328 Bouquet of Roses

Posted by Eero

The Botanical Collection is a subtheme of LEGO® Icons that features relatively affordable sets. In reality, similar life-size botanical subjects have found their way to other LEGO themes, too, including LEGO® Creator and, surprisingly, LEGO® Disney Princess sets. For me, these sets appeal as beautiful models. However, I'm foremost a MOC maker, and they are very good material for own creations – they include usually many of the same pieces, often in bright colours and sleek, organic shapes. 

The Botanical Collection often features many species, with differing colours, but set 10328 Bouquet of Roses focuses on strong red romanticism. How does it score with a MOC builder like me, and what did its pieces inspire me to build?

LEGO® Icons review: 10338 Bumblebee

Posted by Alex Campos

I was highly sceptical when the rumours of a LEGO® Optimus Prime first surfaced: two of the largest toy-making rivals cooperating? I'd certainly get hit in the face by a flying pig before that! It turned out set 10302 Optimus Prime was very real and I need to be on the lookout for airborne swine. Now lightning strikes twice and another famous Transformers character gets the LEGO treatment, namely 10338 Bumblebee. This means plenty of yellow elements to play with.

LEGO® Icons parts review: 10337 Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole

Posted by Kev Levell
The Lamborghini Countach represents perhaps the pinnacle of 1980s iconic sports car design. Exciting angles, crisp edges and subtle curves all balance perfectly in the epitome of the classic wedge-shaped sports car.

Various Lego pieces on a table. Many are white and dark red.

First seen in 1971 and available to buy from 1974, the Countach was designed by Marcello Gandini and had a style that endured in popularity over a 16-year production run that spanned six standard models. Of the six, perhaps the most iconic variant is the 5000QV, and it is that which LEGO® Icons has decided to reimagine in brick form, in set 10337 Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole.

LEGO® Speed Champions review: 76919 McLaren Formula 1 Car

Posted by Tom Loftus

With more LEGO® Speed Champions sets having just been released on 1 June 2024, it's about time we take a look at the final entry in the March 2024 wave – 76919 McLaren Formula 1 Car – which comes in 'chrome' livery! 

Sadly, not that kind of chrome. Nevertheless, having most of the new moulds introduced by the March wave, a few recolours and some lovely – yet specialised – printed elements, the set has much to offer. Let's drive in.
