Is the Lego Super Heroes Iron Man Extremis Sea Port Battle Set Worth Buying?

The minifigures included in this Lego set represent the characters of Aldrich Killian, Ironman with mark 42 amour, and the War Machine. This particular set can be used with other Lego Ironman collections for more creative play and hours of fun for your child. The Extremis set is not huge in size, but it is one of the more affordable options available, which will make it a popular choice with parents!

This Lego set is easy to put together, as Lego provides very descriptive picture directions that make it easier for children to use and comprehend. Please note the suggested age for playing with this set, as it is not safe for children under the age of three, due to the small parts that can cause a choking hazard.

The storyline behind this Lego set is to stop Killian from getting away with Ironman and the War Machine. Your child can blast the boat with the exploding buoy, fire dual missiles, and begin attack with War Machine’s shoulder cannon.

The details on the boat are realistic to this adventure. The hood of the boat opens and is able to fit a minifigure inside of it. The boat’s flick-fire missiles are very easily workable to create many different scenarios with this Lego set.

Lego stands up to its high standards, with no noted drawbacks to this set considering the low price. Overall, this is a great Lego collection to keep your child entertained for hours using his or her imagination. This is one toy that you need not hesitate to purchase for a young (or even grown up) Iron Man fan!

Minced Pork Balls in Sweet and Sour Sauce

Cooked this dish of minced pork balls in sweet and sour sauce the other day and it was a hit with my family. If you would like to try it out, here is the recipe.

Minced Pork
  • Marinate your mince pork with salt, sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce (and if you have, chicken marinate too). Let it sit at least for 1/2 hour.
  • Add about 1 tbs cornstarch so the meat will stick when you roll them into balls.
  • After rolling them into balls, fry in oil till cooked. Put your cooked meatballs aside.

  • Cut up cucumber, big onions, tomatoes and if you wish, pineapple.

  • Saute the vegetables with garlic. Fry till cooked. Add in the sweet and sour sauce.
  • 3tbs honey
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • Salt
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tbs distilled vinegar
  • (Optional - Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce)
If you like it more sour, just add more vinegar or less honey.  How much sauce to make also depends on how much meat and vege you are cooking. If it is not enough, just double up the measurements.

Last Step
Mix the pork balls with the veges and sauce. Mix till everything is nicely coated. Dish out and serve.

Bon Apetite!
