LEGO's new theme is suitably aquatic and the Typhoon is the best of the vehicles I've seen so far (still waiting on the Neptune Carrier).
My 6-year-old was able to build the majority of this model by himself (although the more technical part was beyond him). The instructions are simple and the build itself is uncomplicated.
The ability to rotate the front propellers/impellers is nice (even if I still really dislike the 'flick torpedos') And the model is pretty robust - although still subject to the usual wear and tear during play.
The sharkman seems hopelessly outclassed - but I'm assuming that imbalance will be redressed in other sets.

Although I did enjoy this latest Anita Blake book, it left me feeling slightly frustrated. The central core of the book deals with the usual vampiric machinations and introduces a suitably horrific "uber-villainess" into the mix.

That said, even in a "bad" book, Laurell's ability to tell a compelling story is amazing. She does however seem to have moved Anita's story much more into the realms of "dark" (read erotic) fantasy, more in keeping with the Merry Gentle books, but that's not necessarily a bad thing… Read more
