LEGO IDEAS – “THE LIGHTHOUSE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “THE LIGHTHOUSE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Looks like “RobenAnne” creator of LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) wants to dominate the next LEGO Ideas review round! Less than a week after “Boat House Diner” hit 10,000 Supporters, then BOOM along comes his latest outing – The Lighthouse! After the Old Fishing Store I have to admit this is a favorite of mine. Of course Robert has kept the rustic style running through all his fishing village theme, but the Lighthouse is a real centre piece and has lots…

LEGO MOC TIME – PETER ILMRUD

LEGO MOC TIME – PETER ILMRUD

Next in the MOC series is more of a builder highlight as opposed to a single MOC shout out. Peter Ilmrud is a builder I’ve been following for a while for his gorgeous creations and clever skills in taking existing LEGO modular designs or building from scratch and giving his creations a big dose of Steampunk steroids! One of my favourite builds from Peter has its pedigree rooted in the Palace Cinema (10232) and Brick Bank (10251) modulars. However, this is…

LEGO IDEAS – “BOAT HOUSE DINER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO Ideas seems to be operating a little bit like the old waiting for a bus analogy – “Waiting ages for a bus when one finally comes along so do three others” After a big week of LEGO Ideas news we already have our second LEGO Idea through to the third 2017 LEGO Ideas review and hot off the heals of “Pop-Up Book” Now if you’re thinking this looks familiar you would be correct, titled “Boat House Diner” this project…

LEGO IDEAS – “POP-UP BOOK” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “POP-UP BOOK” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

The second 2017 LEGO Ideas review is now locked away and a distant memory. Finally we can move on and what better way to kickstart the third 2017 LEGO Ideas review, than a project that I truly love, is original and reflects the spirit of LEGO Ideas. The LEGO Idea is titled “Pop-Up Book” and is the creation of JKBrickworks (collaboration between Grant Davis and Jason Allemann). What I love is it’s such an original idea. The book (made of LEGO of course)…

LEGO IDEAS – SECOND 2017 REVIEW QUALIFYING PERIOD NOW CLOSED

LEGO IDEAS – SECOND 2017 REVIEW QUALIFYING PERIOD NOW CLOSED

Well that’s it the qualifying period for the second 2017 LEGO Ideas review panel has now closed and we have surprisingly slim pickings with only 6 projects making it into the review and the greater 10k club. It’s a difficult group for me I can’t say any of the projects really excitement me sadly. If I had to choose one I would would go for “The Wonders Of Peru” for its originality. Project summary below: Nasa Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower…

LEGO IDEAS – “NASA SATURN-V LAUNCH UMBILICAL TOWER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “NASA SATURN-V LAUNCH UMBILICAL TOWER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Looks like the success of the LEGO Ideas Saturn V Rocket (21309) is spawning lots of related LEGO Ideas projects. After seeing the recent NASA Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale) hit 10,000 supporters, next off the rank is a LEGO Idea directly related to the Saturn V Rocket – Nasa Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower. Nasa Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower is the brainchild of Valerie Roche (Whatsuptoday) and Emmanuel Urquieta (Spacemd) who worked collaboratively to design the NASA Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower at 1/110 scale…

LEGO STAR WARS UCS MILLENNIUM FALCON 75192 COMPETITIONS

After all the excitement of Force Friday’s announcement of a new LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), I kind of feel a little bit hungover with the realisation that I can’t afford it anytime soon without getting a divorce first. Well all is not lost as there are a few competitions already running with the chance to win one of these bad boys. I’ve listed the ones I know of already below: LEGO Rebrick is running their first ever…

UNIQLO LEGO T-SHIRTS WAVE 3 TEASER

UNIQLO LEGO T-SHIRTS WAVE 3 TEASER

A while back I highlighted in one of my news roundups that Uniqlo Clothing had released wave 2 of their LEGO branded T-Shirts (sorry I missed wave 1). Well thanks to Uniqlo Singapore we have our first teaser of wave 3 and it looks like the range is going from strength to strength. I have to admit I’m a massive fan of Uniqlo clothing and the quality and sizing is spot on. Looks like I will be adding to my LEGO…

DAVID BECKHAM NEXT LEGO AMBASSADOR?

DAVID BECKHAM NEXT LEGO AMBASSADOR?

It started with an innocent looking post back in early August of a dad building the LEGO Disney Castle (71040) for his kids. However, that’s where the normal part of this story stops, as the dad in question was David Beckham with 54 million followers on Facebook – 54 MILLION! Now of course us die hard AFOL’s we look at the picture and we see all kinds of wrong – Evil UV light (poor old white elements), squishy build surface…
