The Joker Balloon Escape – Set 70900

  I have yet to see the Lego Batman Movie. 🙁 Yes, it has finally been released in Japan, but of course, it’s not playing in my city, and while it’s playing in the nearest city, it’s dubbed in Japanese only (as it’s often the...

Ghost Rider Team-Up – Set 76058

Building Lego Orthanc – Part Ten

        After the lab on the previous floor, here is the study room, probably my favorite floor of the whole tower.         About those two skulls. You’ll see in a few pictures that a lot of things are devoted...
