We received two Snap Ships from PlayMonster for free to play with and review. Opinions are our own.When I was at Toy Fair this past February, which seems like a lifetime ago, I was able to see Snap Ships and I was very excited because this was a whole new building toy with a storyline, cartoon and app. So many ways to interact with Snap Ships and I could not wait till they arrived. Well, they arrived back in June and things got crazy so it took me a while to really get in there and do an in depth review. I finally did one today.

There are a bunch of different Snap Ships to collect. Many on both sides of the battle. The good guys are The Forge and after watching all the episodes of Snap Ships season 1 on YouTube I learned more about the different characters from The Forge. I’m glad that I got the pilot, Klik to be part of my collection. He flies the Sabre XF-23 Interceptor. Actually he flies about anything. In the show the pilots fly all sorts of Snap Ships and they Build to Battle based on what they need.

The bad guys are The Komplex. They are trying to conquer Forge territory and are using ancient weapons called Uju tech. It is up to The Forge to put a stop to their attacks. You can watch all the episodes on the Snap Ships YouTube Channel

You can also see other Snap Ships reviews and learn about each pilot and their ships.

If you are interested in picking some of these up you can do so through our Amazon.com Affiliate link. We’d really appreciate that.

Finishing the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Set #75192

Millennium Falcon

Tonight I went over to Brian’s house to film Built from Bricks. It has been two weeks since I last went over to his place and he had done a ton of work on the Millennium Falcon. He was on the very last bag. I knew this because I had been watching his livestreams as well as his Instagram feed showing his progress. I decided that I would open my own Millennium Falcon and built it with the kids. Mine was considerably smaller than his. His is 7500+ pieces and mine is 696. Mine is also the very first Millennium Falcon that LEGO made back in 2000.

After college I was buying LEGO toys like crazy. I would order them online and have them shipped to me. It was always my intention to save them for when I had kids and when those kids were old enough to play with LEGO and appreciate Star Wars. Back in April we went on a family trip to New Hampshire. I brought along an X-Wing fighter from 2000 and we built that together. It was fun and I was looking for the next set to build.

when Brian originally bought the new Millennium Falcon I dug through my LEGO Star Wars boxes and found my Millennium Falcon. I bought it over to start off the Livestream on the day we worked on the new set for eight straight hours.We opened our last livestream on the set with my completely built Millennium Falcon as a joke. Then we set about finishing the new one. Which happens in the video below.
