Boulder Blaster 8707

I was looking through Brickshelf and saw this new Power Miners set. With a little further searching on the world wide web I found that Brickset, the online LEGO set database already had it listed and that it is available at Toys R Us for $26.99 (online price).

From what I can tell from the reviews at Brickset, this is a Limited Edition set, possibly only available at Toy R Us. I don’t know that for certain, but I do know that even if they are “Limited Edition” you can usually find them eventually on LEGO.com (though they don’t have it at this time) or at LEGOLAND.

It looks like a pretty good set, and from what I’ve read of the reviews, most people seem to like it. Although one person pointed out that it is “almost great” because they think that the dynamite launcher is a little superfluous on a bulldozer. I tend to agree with that, but at the same time, you get three sets of dynamite this way, and I don’t see that as a bad thing. 😉

Oh, here’s a Model Building Tip, well actually an LEGO Set Ordering Tip. Even if you don’t live close to a LEGO store or LEGOLAND but you want to buy something that they carry, you can call them and order what they have over the phone. They will ship it to your house, no matter where in the world that might be. Now I’m not saying that it is cheaper or anything, the shipping alone might discourage you. But if cost doesn’t matter, and you want sets or other LEGO related items that are not available any other way (a good example is that LEGOLAND has shirts and mugs, etc that are only available there) you can get them even if you can’t get there yourself.
