Ok this is my first ever review so if you have any tips or anything, please post it here!
Set name: Tank truck
Set number: 3180
Pieces: 222
Minifigs: One
Price: $19.99 USD

First off, the box.

Front.

Back.

Ok next, the minifig.

An OK Fig. But theres just one thing I don't like about him: His pants. Why are they white? He would look much better in blue pants. Rolling Eyes

And this is the nice little Gas Pump.

I really like this! Smile I put it with my garage set and it looks great! Smile

Now on to the best part of the set: The truck Wink

The front showing the well designed headlights/engine area/fender.

The cabin/inside area showing the coffee mug & other details.

The back of the truck.

Side view showing the "cords" that go to the tanker's lights/brakes. Nice attention to detail, TLC! :wink:

Now on to the actual "tanker".

In this pic you can see the gas hose to fill up the pump.

The other side. But whats in the storage compartment, you ask?

Why, its two yellow whatchyamacallits! Razz

Now, I'm not 100% sure what these are for, but I think it's to keep the tanker from rolling away while unattached to the truck. Razz

Now, the complete set in action!


Ratings:
Build: 9/10 IMO, a very unique & intresting build.
Playability: 7/10 There is a lot you can do with this set with other city sets, but by itself, not so much.
Minifigs: 6/10 Most $20 sets usually include 2 figs, and this guy has WHITE pants?!?!
Overall: 22/30 Don't let my critism stop you from buying this, because if you have other vehicles, this is a great set! Very Happy

Here is an all new review of LSW clone trooper battle pack.

Shop at Home wrote:Unleash the might of the clone army against the Mandalorians!

As the Clone Wars rage across the galaxy, the Army of the Republic faces a powerful new enemy- the Mandalorians! Build up your crack team of clone troopers with the BARC speeder, the all-new ARF clone trooper, 2 new bomb squad clone troopers and the new clone commander minifigures.

•Includes 4 minifigures: clone commander, 2 bomb squad clone troopers and 1 ARF clone trooper
•Features 5 weapons!
•Includes BARC speeder
•Move the cannon turret!
•BARC speeder measures 6” (15cm) long, 3” (7cm) wide

Set info:
Set name: Clone trooper battle pack
Set number: 7913
Peices: 85
Price: $11.99
Minifigs: 4

First off, the box. One thing that seemed different was that this box is more glossy/shiny. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think other SW boxes are like this.

Front.

Back.

One thing I would like to point out, why does this say clone trooper? I thought he was supposed to be a clone trooper commander. scratch

New/usefull peices. I like this blaster, but IMO the one in the clone walker BP was cooler.

All the minifigs together. I really like the looks of the commander & bomb squad troopers! The commander is my favorite, though.

The commander.

The bomb squad trooper.

The ARF trooper.

If you just swith the ARF trooper's helmet with the commander's, you get this awsome combonation!

Unfortunetly, if you do that, you are left with this dinky guy. Razz

Now on to the actual "set". Razz

Front of the speeder. Let me just say that when I first bought this, I didn't think too much about the speeder, but now that I have built it, I'm like, this is pretty cool!

Back of the speeder.

Underside of the speeder.

The whole set in action!

Set ratings:
Minifigs: 10/10 These figs are totally killer, and when I say that, I mean it in a good way. Razz I mean, It's a battle pack, what did you expect?
Playability: 8.5/10 There is a ton you can do with this set, especialy if you have other SW sets.
Price: 6.5/10 Last year the price was 10.99 for about the same amout of peices, while this set was 11.99! TLC just keeps on uppin' the price, don't they? Rolling Eyes
Build: 8.5/10 Battle packs are usually about the figs, & it's the same way here, but instead of some dinky little 4x10 plate with some blasters, this vehicle has a good bit of detail, for a BP.
Overall: 33.5/40 But the bottom line is, the minifigs. They are the highlight of this set, and they deserve to be. Wink

Here is an all new review of a not-so-new set! Smile (Sorry about the double post)

Set name: Republic attack shuttle
Set number: 8019
Peices: ??? not mentioned on the box
Minifigs: Three, clone trooper, clone pilot, Mace Windu.
Price: $59.99

Regretably no box pics for this one, sorry. Rolling Eyes

First off, the minifigs!

I LOVE Mace Windu! He has only been in 2 other sets! He was one of the main reasons I bought this. Razz

Now on to the set. Wink

The shuttle in landing mode.

A close up of one of the wings. You can see how some of the peices are slick/tile, and some are studs.

The cockpit. It can hold two figs.

In this pic you can see how the "missle" function works.

The back of the ship. My finger is on the bomb release switch, wich you will see later.

The inside of the ship. See the yellow/green/blue bombs on the sides.

It can hold two figs, without taking out the weapon holder, then, it will hold 4.

The underside of the shuttle.

Set ratings:
Minifigs: 9/10 Mace Windu. Thats all there is to say here, plus you get two clones! Cool
Build: 9/10 A very intresting build all the way through. The wings were both very neat, and building all the functions such as the bomb dropper were very fun.
Price: 7.5/10 $60 for basically a ship isn't exactly a bargain. Neutral
Playablility: 8.5/10 this set is really fun to use, especially if you have other SW sets.
Overall: 34/40 Not a bad set, not a bad set at all. Wink

It's been a while since I've done a review so I decided to make a new one!

Set Name: Fishing Boat
Set Number: 4642
Price: $19.99
Peices: 64
Minigs: 2

First off, the box.



The box has the regular light blue background with a grey-ish sillouhette of buildings and a crane.



The back of the box shows a few nice dioramas/play ideas.



The instruction pamplet. Not too bent, just in the middle so it would fit in the box.



The parts list on the back page.

The Minifigs

The dad wearing a navy shirt with red stripes, and the son wearing a white hoodie. Nothing new.



With their life jackets. Safety First!



The shark. (Sorry for the orange-yellow pics from here on)



A comparison of this shark with the one from the coast guard sets. Notice how the one on the right (the one from this set) has a less-pointy nose? I wonder why...?

The Build


Front view of the boat.



Side view.

[img][/img]

Back view. Notice the nice-looking sticker bearing the name "Annabel".



Bird's eye view. Here you can see the sticker on the white slopes at the front of the boat. Perhaps this is a hatch to the lower deck?



Speaking of the lower deck... Here it is! I removed the seat and the fishing pole for you to see in there. The area under the top deck is 10 studs long. Oh and did I mention it is completely empty under there? I put a bed down there. I plan to get a red 2x6 plate to replace the brown, so it will match the rest of the boat better.



I also added a barrel to hold fish in.



Dad at the controls, and the son fishing.



Close up of the top deck.



The safety lights up top and antena for.... Radio? Razz



Nice catch, son! cyclops Now lets hope you and Dad can reel him in! Laughing

Ratings
Minifigs: 5/10 With it being $20 for 64 peices, you would think TLC could've thrown a new torso or head atleast
Price: 7/10 $20 for 64 peices isn't exactly a great deal, but the hull is one peice and it floats, but if it was brick-built it wouldn't be able to float. So that takes up for alot of the peices.
Build: 8/10 The build was very fun and I enjoyed building up the boat. But getting the string through the hole in the fishing pole is very hard!
Peices: 7/10 Meh.Nothing really new here.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review! Smile
