Super Malio Peach’s Castle LEGO Compatible Mario Review Time Lapse Unboxing LQS 67601 Speedbuild MOC

In this video, we are going to have an extensive look over this Super Malio / Mario LEGO Compatible Peach’s Castle by Lepin / LQS 67601. We will look at the features of the set, a time lapse speed build and examine the instructions. We will look at the design and consider where it originated from along with our usual build experience, playability, display ability and value discussions.

Following on from this, we will sequentially look at the build after each bag to get a better sense of the internals and construction process. Finally we will leave off on a few little issues we found with the build.

‘Original’ design by S.Cossy can be found here:

Transcript from the show:

G’day everyone Matt Elder Family Bricks here and today we’ve got something a little bit different we’re doing an unboxing that we’ve got here this was sent to us and provided to us but opinions and reactions will be our own so let’s get into it.

This was from halfway around the world yes it is it says brick separator.

It’s fizzy so this is a building brick set it’s done by a fun hole and as you can see it’s a cool little cabin and some lights there should go into it it’s pretty cool should we have a look and see what’s inside yes.

These are lights lights oh my god there’s so many lights.

We’ve got some stickers how many stickers audiences.

Looks like a telephone book of building instructions .

Oh no oh this looks funny it looks very fun.

I’m counting the lights one two three oh this is a black clipper piece bricks are crazy I’ve never heard of a black brake separator I’ve seen big ones but not small ones should we see how many bags are here uh we got some base plates.

Wait but I’ve never seen this set before so as you can see this is all the stuff we’ve got there’s lots of bags here they’re all sort of numbered.

Instructions light kits base plates looking at the box art it’s all nicely done in the black nice crisp photograph there did however get a little bit damaged in transit but we’ll ignore that. So some details, Fun Whole FH 9001 2097 pieces and they’re calling it the Wood Cabin Retro House and i guess the Delight Day and Night is kind of their branding name for the led lights which are included.

So looking at everything that is included in the box there’s actually a lot here as you can sort of see you’ve got numbered bags. Most of them have got five for each numbers one through seven although you do have some like five which has got six and seven has only got two so beyond all the numbered bags.

What else we got here we’ve got some lights in numbered bags so one two two two three and four and then a couple of the other bags sealed together. That looks like some plates in there brick separator i’m quite sure what that is i’m sure we’ll find out.

Just looking at some of these lights that we’ve got here these seem to be these sort of i guess quasi vacuum sealed bags again the quality on it feels quite good they certainly don’t feel like they’re cheaping out on any of the packaging.

Looking at the instruction manual it’s quite thick and it’s printed on some really nice paper like they haven’t cheaped out on this at all i’m just flicking through the instructions seems to be all reasonable sort of quality. I’m just looking at a little bit about it in the beginning here some information how to use some of the instructions it looks like some info on the lights, some troubleshooting, what’s included, light kits how to use a brick separator.

And then away from there a base plate and then another plate just feeling these feel comparable to what you’d normally expect. That seems to be relatively good quality as well and then of course a sticker sheet. So this is going to get interesting there seems to be a lot i’m guessing this is a wood texture with a bit of a transparency on it maybe. So if we took out some of those yeah 2 000 piece plus set seems to be reasonable. It’ll be interesting to see what the tackiness and the sticky sort of feel of.

That is a little information tag there, “thank you for choosing us”, some marketing stuff.

This is going to be fun to build hard to build but it’s going to be fun to build.

Here we have the company website and this is the English version of it. And as we can see there the lead image of it is the cabin that we’re going to be looking at and the first one there that they’re looking at selling. And then if you go down a lot of the other products that they seem to have lights kits for construction sets so just going back up here having a look at the wood cabin.

See some of the imagery that we have. Here are some photos of the actual product and it does actually look quite good so really looking forward to building this. It’s even got a little sheepy there. Sort of day night aspect and the reverse side and in a bit of an interior detail.

They’re also looking at selling a product through i’ll include a link around the video but this is the page here it says it’s currently unavailable but apparently it’s going to be up within a couple of days of this video recording. This will be the place to get the best price apparently.

So just having a look through got some slightly different images. Here it’s showing the day night comparison so on, the internal lights gonna be interesting to have a look through that, and again some dimensions and sorts of things like that. It looks like it’s gonna use an interesting building technique there, just scrolling through the rest of page some other promotional shots and further descriptions.

Going through for what’s included as what we’ve already said you know the buildings that the light kit the instructions usual sorts of things you’d expect.

How long do you think this is going to take a build, oh like a month or something, once a couple days couple days maybe, no okay we’ll have to see how long it takes. Work non-stop for hours and hours I suppose we might be able to do it in the day.

Thank you for watching Family Bricks. Please like share and subscribe so you don’t miss out on any more videos join us in the next video where we are going to review this so here’s the video of us going through and reviewing this and here are some other videos you might like.

Miles “Tails” Prower MoC from Majestic Tiger 31129: Review, TimeLapse Speed Build. Sonic The Hedgehog LEGO

In this video we are going to look at this custom MOC of Miles “Tails” Prower from the Sonic the Hedgehog video game franchise that is built exclusively from the pieces in this LEGO Majestic Tiger set 31129 that was released in 2022. This alternative build b-model was created by fan designer Macharius and instructions can be purchased from

We will give a quick overview of the MoC and its points of articulation. We will look at some of the constraints and also a time lapse speed build of the MoC. Ultimately asking the question “Is this set worth building?”

WHAT?! N1 Naboo Starfighter MOC Star Wars Book of Boba Fett Mandalorian Grogu Baby Yoda Wizard

In this video we are going to review this LEGO MoC of The Mandalorians N1 Naboo Starfighter Wizard as seen in the recent Book of Boba Fett Star Wars series on Disney+. We will look at this in terms of design, cost, playability and the all important “swooshability”. We will discuss some of the modifications we’ve made and a couple of mistakes in the instructions. We will take a sneak peak of the painting that it is inspiring.

We will finish off with a time lapse speed building covering the key elements of the build.

If you are interested in buying the N1 Starfighter painting in the video when it is finished, drop me a line

As soon as this was introduced in universe, you knew Grogu and the Mandalorian were going to end up having their adventures together. Original base instructions can be found here:

LEGOLAND Windsor UK 2022 Partial Reopening February. Is It Worth it?! Is it Safe? Short Break

In this video we check out LEGOLAND Windsor UK when the park is partially open early Febuary 2022. What does it mean to be only partially open? What is available? Is it worthwhile and what events are happening?

The park is only partially open to guests staying at the Castle and Resort Hotels only. There are a few quirks about this and we give some hints and tips. It is odd for the park to be open this time of year.

Will this become a recurring thing, or just an attempt to make up for recent impacts onto the park?

ANY GOOD?! LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog Chemical Plant Zone MoC Review Time Lapse 21331

Is this fan made LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog Chemical Plant Zone MoC any good?!

In this video we are going to review this LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog Chemical Plant Zone level MoC and ask the question “Is it any good and who does it appeal to”? After Green Hill Zone, Chemical Plant Zone is arguably the next recognizable level from the early SEGA Sonic games.

This model was designed by Flowqi and the file is available for free on

We will see how this extension joins up with the official release Sonic the Hedgehog LEGO Ideas set 21331 that was just released January 1st, 2022. We will touch upon a few little errors in the digital file and look at the extension I added. We will then round it out with a time-lapse of the whole build.

Luke Hoth AT-AT Beyond the Brick 24 hour Livestream

This Luke Skywalker acrylic painting on Hoth with AT-AT was done as giveaway for the Beyondthebrick 24 hour charity livestream. Congrats to everyone involved as raised a staggering ~$35,000 when originally targeting $12,000. Thank you for everyone who supported and got involved!

Special thanks to BricksoBrian who did an amazing amount of leg work behind the scenes and doesn’t get enough credit.

Painting was the better part of 30 hours and so much fun to do. 

This is a bit of a homage to the concept art done for The Empire Strikes Back film by Ralph McQuarrie, particularly the AT-AT walker pose (if it ain’t broke…)

LEGO VS FAN MoC: Sonic The Hedgehog Green Hill Zone Level Set 21331

LEGO Official Set vs FAN Made MOC – Which is Better?!

In this video we compare the official release Sonic the Hedgehog LEGO Ideas set 21331 with a fan made Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone Modular MoC I created. We will get a bit of a flavour on how they compare with each other along with a time lapse speed build of the official LEGO set.

FREE Instructions are available at and 3rd party sites like for my Sonic MoC. The idea being that we have given enough resources to build your own Sonic the Hedgehog courses. If you do, we’d love to see them via email or Instagram @mattelder_uk
