LEGO seems to be introducing amazing sets at a record pace and I’m losing track of what’s new and worthy of my limited funds. To help educate myself, I will be starting a new podcast theme: LEGO reviews. I’ve invited Marco Zanconi (@the_aphol) to join me on this podcast. Together we will take a deeper look at some of our favorite LEGO reviews as well as what goes into a great review.
New Podcast Theme
Marco is a moderator on BrickCentral, a LEGO Recognized Online Community. But more than that, Marco is an excellent LEGO toy photographer whose work I respect greatly. I’m impressed by his set reviews, his inventive photography and his product knowledge. I knew he would be an excellent co-host, and I was right!
Recently, Marco and I had a chance to connect over Skype (our first time “meeting” face to face!) and had a lively conversation about our favorite reviews, what makes a good review, and the sets we’re eyeing for future toy photography. Take a listen here:

What did you think?
Marco and I had a great time connecting over our mutual love of LEGO and a good review. We’re already brainstorming about future episodes on the collectible minifigures, LEGO-specific storage solutions, Ninjago as an inspiration, new sets for 2020, etc. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, what do you think of our new podcast theme: LEGO reviews?
- What sets do you want to see reviewed?
- Are reviews helpful when deciding how to spend your money?
- Do reviews inspire your own toy photography?
- Are there specific LEGO-related topics you want to see us discuss?
Please leave your comments below and tell us what you think!
If you’ve listened to the podcast, you know Marco and I talk about the sets we look forward to purchasing. What set(s) are on your wish list?
