Last month, I was honored to officiate the wedding of my best friend to her beautiful new wife. The officiant is not typically part of the full bridal party, but they considered me on par with the Best Man. They know their friends well, and my bridal party gift from the new couple included two LEGO sets I never would have purchased on my own. Both are from the film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, one of the 2021 Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
I prefer ships and buildings to play set dioramas, but I adore the stunning dragon in the Battle at the Ancient Village set, and the car in the Escape from The Ten Rings set was a fun little build. I also really like the dynamic depiction of the ring weapon on one of the Shang-Chi minifigures. And I got an adorable tiny Morris with each set!
Escape from The Ten Rings (76176) — 321 pieces & Battle at the Ancient Village (76177) — 400 pieces
In other related news, the official reorganization of the
LEGO guest room has gotten some time and financial investment. This means room for more sets to build, finally, so I can’t wait to tackle some of my already purchased sets once the first draft of the next book is complete!
