Nerf Lawbringer Blaster Doomlands 2169

The new Doomlands Nerf Lawbringer blaster is part of the series themed on a post apoctalyptic future which is set in the year 2169.

The official plot is that after the Earth was hit by an asteroid, life and civilisation begins again. Survivors must fight off raiders and new monsterous creatures. The Nerf blasters themselves feature clear parts which can show the firing mechanism of the blasters.

The powerful Lawbringer Doomlands blaster fires 12 darts without reloading from the rotating barrel with hammer-action blasting. You can load up your darts from the storage capsules on the stock and drop the hammer as you let each one fly! You will be the fiercest protector on the battlefield with the Lawbringer blaster!

The ammo in the Nerf Lawbringer blaster is held within a medium capacity drum, which is loaded one at a time. The stock is a simple, but has a unique design, which provides a good shoulder rest. To fire the blaster, you have to prime it, which works pretty well as you hold it with two hands. The lawbringer is a fun blaster to fire, it feels solid in your grasp, whether you are using the stock, or just firing the gun from your waist. The Nerf Lawbringer fires quite quickly, but not too rapidly as it is individually primed, which made it feel like a drum-fed, sawed-off shotgun. Although like a shotgun, the accuracy just isn’t amazing. If you are targeting something near you it’s fine, but if you want to shoot at something 50 feet away, you will be lucky to hit your target. Range wise the Lawbringer can shoot up to 60 feet.

Paw Patrol Air Patroller Toy

STOCK UPDATE – In Stock at Smyths Toys for £39.99 + Free Delivery – Hurry Stock is Low! – Buy Now – Direct link

Also available on Amazon UK for £39.99 – direct link

Hot on the heels of the Paw Patroller Deluxe Lorry comes the eagerly awaited Paw Patrol Air Patroller.

This new Paw Patrol toy has rotating propellers and the Air Patroller easily transforms from a helicopter into a plane, just like a real Osprey.

The new Air Patroller will provide hours of fun when helping out Adventure Bay. It has real lights and sounds to help you on your missions. You can put your Paw Patrol team in the cargo bay and in the cockpit.

You can fit up to two characters in the Cockpit and four in the Cargo Bay. Included with the Air Patroller is the Robo Dog figure who will help pilot the Air Patroller for a successful rescue mission.

When your childrens mission is complete, you can bring the Air Patroller in for a landing with its real working wheels or transform to helicopter mode and hover down for a perfect pooch landing atop the Paw Patroller (sold separately).

It’s good how the sounds change for both plane and helicopter mode. This toy works well with the other Paw Patrol Pups and Ryder fit nicely in the cockpit. It’s a fairly solid plastic toy and the cockpit catch is secure and nice and tight – so figures don’t fall out when the children zoom it around. It’s nicely displayed in the box and is around a foot long (12″ inches).

In the box:

  • 1 Air Patroller

Lego Batman Classic TV Batcave Set 76052

Have you seen the new Lego Batman Classic TV Batcave Set 76052. This looks amazing, but in the UK it is £230 at the Lego UK Shop online. This is a true fan purchase and a collectable one at that.

Lego Batman Classic TV Batcave Set 76052 contains 2,526 pieces and comes with 9 minifigures.

The Batcave features a false bookcase, Batpoles, Bat Lab with Batcomputer, plus a Batmobile, Batcopter and the 9 minifigures.

Let’s start with the Batmobile. The level of detail on this is amazing, take a look inside and the red bat phone in the car is perfect. It even has the correct emergency stickers for the Bat-Turn lever. The only downside to the car is that the doors don’t swing open as in the original Batman series they always seemed to open the doors to get in.

The Lego Batcopter is a single seater with the classic bubble type glass around the pilot. The batbike (which was a surprise inclusion for me) also looks great with Robin in the passenger seat and Batman driving it.

Lego Batcopter

The 9 included minifigures are: Batman, Robin, Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Alfred Pennyworth (Butler), The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler and The Penguin (and don’t forget the house cat). Catwoman minifigure is very good with her cat ears poking through her hair.

The Batcave building itself is made up of 3 main sections, the helipad and Batmobile or Batbike parking space, the underground cave, laboratory and Batcomputer area and then finally the Wayne Manor library room with the famous red Batphone and the hidden button in the statue which opens the false wall to expose the Batpoles. This upper part is then attached to the Batpoles which take our caped crusaders down to the Batcave and at the same time get them into costume.

The 3 main parts of the Wayne manor and the Batcave can either be separated or combined together. One nice aspect is that on the other side of the library room and the Batpoles is the outside of Wayne manor with all of it’s windows.

The Batcave 76052 Lego set contains lots and lots of accessories and weapons including The Joker’s TNT, Catwoman’s whip, The Riddler’s TNT and The Penguin’s umbrella. There are also Batman’s 3 Batarangs, rope, grappling hook and handcuffs.

Important Measurements:

  • Batcave measures over 18” (46cm) high, 22” (56cm) wide and 7” (20cm) deep.
  • Batmobile measures over 2” (6cm) high, 8” (21cm) long and 2” (7cm) wide.
  • Batcopter measures over 2” (7cm) high, 8” (22cm) long and 7” (19cm) wide.
  • Batcycle (I call it Batbike) measures over 1” (4cm) high, 3” (8cm) long and 1” (4cm) wide.

Overall this Lego Batcave looks amazing, and is available to buy from the Lego Shop
