Piececool Adds to Datang Small Street

Piececool Adds to Datang Small Street

Late yesterday, Piececool added the Red Crabapple Theater to their website, with a release date of May 25th. I believe it is part of their Datang Small Street series, despite not being stated directly. It matches the style quite closely, and all three “Similar Products” on the product page are the other 3 models from […]

#TT: Big Ben and Pilot Droid Rex

#TT: Big Ben and Pilot Droid Rex

Turning back the time for this #ThrowbackThursday just seems natural, given one of the models. I remember being quite pleased with Big Ben, but then later being confused about if I built it correctly, as some product photos I’ve seen show the clocks as being outset, rather than inset into the model. As for Pilot […]

#TT: Temple of Heaven

#TT: Temple of Heaven

So, I’ve not done a Throwback Thursday post in a while, and I recently thought about the fact that I did a lot of compressed reviews (compressed to the 2000 character limit of Instagram captions) before I started the blog. And since this blog is supposed to be a resource for builders, it would be […]

Build: 30 Rockefeller Plaza

Piececool Adds Some Not-Transformers Models

Piececool Adds Some Not-Transformers Models

Four new models have been added to Piececool’s website, marked with a pre-sale date of 10/28. Once again, the models have been bundled together, almost as if a set. Strangely, this set includes 3 mythical warriors in ancient-Chinese style armor that most definitely do not [they do] resemble Transformers characters. And the Southern Gate. You […]

Build: The Kennedy Center

Build: The Kennedy Center

Completing the Kennedy Center model brings me closer to covering the last of the currently discontinued models. Metal Earth doesn’t have an easy way to find out which models have been discontinued (wouldn’t it be nice if they had an “archive” or “museum” section on their website), you just have to browse their list of […]

Build: Sundial Bridge

Build: Sundial Bridge

I don’t know about you, but it’s nice to sit down with a quick and easy build every once in a while. Unfortunately, I got myself into a pickle in that regards by not having any of those, until this Sundial Bridge model came in the mail this last weekend. I picked up this little […]
