LEGO Chinese Zodiac Animal Sets Review


In this Chinese New Year season, I decided to open and build the few LEGO seasonal sets (Piggy, Rooster and Monkey) that I collected.  Here's my opinion after build:
  • I like the Rooster most because it is the most colourful set. The downside is the eye stickers, I prefer if LEGO could use a printed eyes. The head is rotatable as it sits on a turntable piece, the beck, wings, feet and tail are movable too. You can find 3 colours combination on the tail (blue, green and white).
  • In term of building, I prefer the Piggy. Her head, arms and tail are rotatable. Unfortunately I can't set the arms and tail at the angle I want. The printed eyes are common but the printed nose is specific on this set. 
  • The Monkey uses mostly brown colour bricks with some tan colour bricks on the face, torso, hands and legs. Just like the Piggy, the ears, arms and tail are movable. The head is rotatable too.
Each set comes with an Angpow Packet (which is much bigger than the normal Angpow Packet that we use 😆) that printed with very nice picture on both sides.

Here's the photos of each of them.

First Lego League Competition


We are very pleased to become one of the sponsor of TEAM APHELION to take part in the yearly First Lego League Competition.

First Lego League is an International competition organised by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) for elementary and middle school students (age between 9~16)

Every year, First Lego League introduces a scientific and real-world challenge for the teams to research on. The challenge involves:

  1. the Robot Game
  2. the Robot Design
  3. the Project and
  4. the Core Values. 
The team will design and program an autonomous robot (LEGO Mindstorms/EV3) to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), develop a solution to a problem they have identified (project), share their knowledge and display their robot design, all guided by the FIRST Core Values.

TEAM APHELION is the first team (in Negeri Sembilan) to take part in the First Lego League Competition. The team is formed by 10 persons (8 students from age 9 to 16 and 2 adult coaches).
