Review: New Pokémon sets from Mega Construx

MEGAContrux Pokemon

We received some Mega Construx sets for free to play with and review. Opinions are 100% our own.

We received two sets to play with and they were the Charmander vs. Squirtle battle pack and the Machop and pokeball set. Andrew and I don’t really know much about Pokémon. I was older when ti came out and I never got into it. I wasn’t interested in the TV show or collecting the cards either. I do like building sets, and so when we were asked to review these I said sure.

MEGA Construx does a nice job of creating sets that feature current characters and properties like Despicable Me and the Minions and now Pokémon. The way that you can build each little Pokémon character is done nicely. You actually build the little heads of the characters rather then them being molded pieces. I like this because the heads go on with ball in socket connections so that you can move the heads all around. This makes for better poses while playing. Andrew built these sets himself and he did a great job following the directions with a little help. You can see more about each of the sets and also find a link to their official pages.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out and I’m Building LEGO Sets! The Milano vs The Abilisk

In July of 2014 I had the most amazing trip of my life in Social Media. I got to go to California to see Guardians of the Galaxy and interview the cast. To this day it is my absolute favorite movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Maybe it was interviewing Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista or James Gunn, maybe it was cooking with my good friend Chris Lewis of Dad of Divas and even more great fun things. It was just the most incredible experience and so the Guardians of the Galaxy will always be a part of what I love about the movies. I have been eagerly awaiting the release of GotG Vol. 2. It was released last night and I haven’t seen it yet. I don’t even know when I’m going to get to see it. I hope it is soon.

In the meantime I have been building all my Guardians of the Galaxy LEGO sets. I’ve made some stop motions movies and also some timelapses of the builds. The builds have been fun. I’ve enjoyed building the sets and stop motion shorts. Thinking of something funny each time has been a challenge but also fun to try. I love the humor of the movies and hoped that I made something fun to watch.

Today I built set #76081 which is the Milano vs The Abilisk. This set has Star-Lord, Baby Groot, Gamora, Drax and Nebula. They are cool minifigs. I’ve now done all 3 of the sets and have the whole team and the baddies, but the one figure that is not part of any of the sets is Ego. I’m hoping that another set is going to come out later, maybe because it contains a spoiler. I’m not sure. I still want a Kurt Russell Minifig.

I tried something different with the timelapse today. I hope that you enjoy it. No time for stop motion, though.
