LEGO IDEAS MOMENTS IN SPACE COMPETITION

LEGO IDEAS MOMENTS IN SPACE COMPETITION

Looks like the team over at LEGO Ideas are on the hunt for some cool fan based ideas to take up the mantle of the next space themed gift with purchase (GWP) set. Letting my mind drift in the heavens above I wonder if this is a hint of a new yet to be announced and much wanted space theme? Sorry that’s just a wild guess and not linked to any insider knowledge – cue the sad face 🙁 Anyway…

5AM LEGO WAKE CALL – NEXO KNIGHTS NEED A FRIDGE DAD!

5AM LEGO WAKE CALL – NEXO KNIGHTS NEED A FRIDGE DAD!

So before I begin let me paint a picture – Every day I get woken up at 5am by my wonderful kids (thank god I’m a morning person)! It begins with my 2 year old daughter screaming out from her cott “CEREAL CEREAL CEREAL!” (always about food with that one), followed by my 4 year old boy running down the hallway and dragging me out of bed to “COME TO MY ROOM AND PLAY LEGO“. Sadly the eldest 5 and…

LEGO IDEAS – “THE LEGO CHRISTMAS STORY HOUSE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “THE LEGO CHRISTMAS STORY HOUSE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

I have to admit this is the strangest LEGO Ideas round to date?! Whether it’s the hero worship status that has formed around RobenAnne (creator of the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store 21310) with three of his ideas hitting 10,000 supporters or random shows not extensively known outside of North America, I’m left feeling a bit puzzled and surprised. That’s not to say I’m not a fan of the ideas to the contrary I love RobenAnne’s work and the Pop-Up…

THE RETURN OF THE LEGO CLASSIC BLUE BASEPLATE 10714

THE RETURN OF THE LEGO CLASSIC BLUE BASEPLATE 10714

After what seems like an eternity LEGO have announced that the 32×32 blue baseplate will be making a comeback in 2018 – Cue the very happy face. The 32×32 blue baseplate was suddenly retired back in 2014 to the despair of water loving MOC creators and kids wanting to create water scenes or wherever their imaginations took them! This meant that the only way to get our hands on blue baseplates for the last few years has been through resellers…

LEGO DIVERS TAKE REAL WORLD DIVE THANKS TO PREMIER OIL AND SUBSEA 7

LEGO DIVERS TAKE REAL WORLD DIVE THANKS TO PREMIER OIL AND SUBSEA 7

Thanks to Energy Voice and a work colleague I came across a cool little story in the Industry I work in – oil and gas (renewables as well don’t judge me!). This story all started with a dedicated father (MacNeill Ferguson) and his two young lads (Ollie and Harry) who pulled together a cool 500 adventure wish list called The Days Are Just Packed. Over time their list has grown and the adventures have come in all shapes and sizes. Their latest…

LEGO IDEAS – “RUPAUL’S BRICK RACE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

It’s been a quiet month over at LEGO Ideas (other than the Tron Light Cycle announcement) and with this review cycle nearing a close we finally have our sixth LEGO Idea to join the review cycle and hit 10,000 supporters. RuPaul’s Brick Race (based on RuPaul’s Drag Race) is the creation of “SeeMarkGeek” and is a playful attack on all things pink and flamboyant. Not something I’m personally aware of or watched, but the show is based on the American…

GUEST BLOG – LEGO IDEAS SPACE LAUNCH SYSTEM BLOCK 1 ROCKET

GUEST BLOG – LEGO IDEAS SPACE LAUNCH SYSTEM BLOCK 1 ROCKET

As a Lego and NASA enthusiast, this 1.2 meter Space Launch System Rocket set proposal has honestly blown me away. Each and every human from the dawn of time has looked toward the final frontier and has dreamed of visiting the stars. Only until about fifty years ago has this become possible with the many outer-space missions and most recently the Space Launch System program. LEGO and Outer-space traveling go together extremely well because both involve creativity and design and…

REVIEW – LEGO CITY ADVENT CALENDAR 2017

REVIEW – LEGO CITY ADVENT CALENDAR 2017

Well here we go again, I blinked and most of 2017 decided to disappear and leave Christmas staring right back at me! In case I didn’t realize the kids are also making it their life goal to tell me daily that they want ALL the LEGO at the local shops because they have been good (yeah right kids)! After the massive sets LEGO released this year surely it’s time my wallet took a well earned rest! In addition to my…
