In it we discover a storyline as old as humans, and one not unlike past Hollywood blockbusters.

Of course, that works well for entertainment equipment manufacturers like Sony, who, coincidentally, just announced its first 4K UHD HDR Blu-ray Player, the X1000ES, as well as a brand new 4K UHD HDR Home Theater Projector, the VPL-VW675ES, both taking advantage of the slow but growing number of available 4K content, both on disk and on the Internet.

LEGO Bucket Wheel Excavator Review : Biggest. Technic Set. Ever.

LEGO Bucket Wheel Excavator Review : Biggest. Technic Set. Ever.

We've got the biggest LEGO Technic set in the world here this week and we're about to get in deep with how much we dig it. This is the LEGO Bucket Wheel Excavator, a "Technic" brand set that utilizes mainly Technic pieces, but a small set of standard LEGO bricks as well. This set is more than just a Technic set - it's not just a model. It's not the sort of thing an adult builds and lets sit on a shelf, as some LEGO Technic sets are prone to do. Instead, this set, be it on purpose or by complete coincidence, works with LEGO Minifigures.
