LEGO NEWS – OFFICIAL LOOK AT THE REMAINING 2018 NEW YEAR LEGO CITY SETS

LEGO NEWS – OFFICIAL LOOK AT THE REMAINING 2018 NEW YEAR LEGO CITY SETS

Like in previous years the announcement of the new year wave of LEGO sets has come in two parts with the latest official images completing the picture of what we can expect. Following on from my first LEGO City post a few weeks back (2018 LEGO City Sets), the LEGO City sets continue the LEGO country folk lifestyle with some pretty awesome gold mining sets. If that sounds a little on the boring side then never fear – for the…

REVIEW – LEGO EXCLUSIVE VIP SET 40178

REVIEW – LEGO EXCLUSIVE VIP SET 40178

Umm sitting at home, kids in bed, beer in hand, aircon blasting out (yesterday was 37C / 100F degrees in Perth!), watching the Vikings and decided what the hell maybe I’ll do a quick build. Looking at the stockpile of LEGO and wanting to still half watch the Vikings I fixed upon the recent LEGO Exclusive VIP set 40178. The set was obtained from the previous October promotion (LEGO@Shop and various LEGO certified stores). Unusually for a promotional set of…

GUEST BLOG – LEGO STAR WARS FOOSBALL TABLE

GUEST BLOG – LEGO STAR WARS FOOSBALL TABLE

As a Star Wars/foosball/Lego fan, I must say this little Lego Star Wars foosball table project has swept me off my feet. There is no mystery that every Lego lover wants to make a pocket version of their favorite thing, from cars to houses and the perfect thing is that Lego allows us that. That is why I was absolutely impressed with this foosball table and later in the article, you will see why. This foosball table is a pocket…

NEW GUEST BLOG SERIES

NEW GUEST BLOG SERIES

Since I started All About The Brick (AATB) a year and half ago I have posted just over 215 articles which has been a BIG, but massively enjoyable commitment. Through the journey I have had various people reach out asking if they could join AATB and become a blogger bringing additional material, different style and news on all things LEGO. Now while I’m not willing to let go of the reins it does pose an interesting opportunity to build on…

ROUND 3 TO LEGO AGAINST LEPIN CLONE BRAND

ROUND 3 TO LEGO AGAINST LEPIN CLONE BRAND

Just over a year ago AATB brought the news (Round 2 to LEGO against the Evil LEPIN) that LEGO had confirmed that the LEGO Group was taking legal action against Lepin in the Chinese court system. Well 13 months later and LEGO has drawn first blood with the Chinese court system finally confirming that LEGO is a “well-known” trademark in China and opening the door to hunt down counterfeit brands! for more information see the full update from LEGO Group below: The…

LEGO TAJ MAHAL MAKING A SURPRISE COMEBACK

LEGO TAJ MAHAL MAKING A SURPRISE COMEBACK

LEGO blindsided everyone with a big surprise announcement that LEGO CREATOR Taj Mahal will be re-released on the 27th November (Cyber Monday). The set will retail at AUD $499.99 / USD $369.99 / GBP £299.99. Note – prices are based on the LEGO online shop. The set is identical to the previous set, but includes 1 extra element which I suspect is the brick separator tool. It’s been discussed extensively but I think the sudden surprise re-release of this set confirms LEGO’s desire to…

LEGO IDEAS – “THE DIVE SHOP” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “THE DIVE SHOP” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

The designer “RobenAnne” creator of LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) is now well and truly dominating this LEGO Ideas review round. 3 of the 5 Ideas to hit 10,000 Supporters are his own designs and that is purely down to his loyal fan base who have been charmed and impressed with the design of his hugely successful Old Fishing Store (21310). Ironically I haven’t experienced building the set yet, but mine is finally on it’s way (stuck at the infamous Alexandria Business…

LEGO IDEAS – “JAGUAR E-TYPE ROADSTER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “JAGUAR E-TYPE ROADSTER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Firstly sorry! – I’ve been so busy writing up my review on Assembly Square and reporting on all the new 2018 sets that one of the latest LEGO Idea sets to hit 10,000 supporters slipped through my radar last week! After the disappointment of the Land Rover 4×4 not making it through to production it now looks like we have another attempt at a classic British motor vehicle. This time round it’s the 20th century JAGUAR E-Type Roadster 2 series trying…

LEGO NEWS – OFFICIAL LOOK AT 2018 NEW YEAR LEGO TECHNIC SETS

LEGO NEWS – OFFICIAL LOOK AT 2018 NEW YEAR LEGO TECHNIC SETS

LEGO Technic is personally a funny one for me, I did review LEGO Technic Ocean Explorer (42064) and enjoyed it, but It’s a theme that just doesn’t resonate with me. The newest wave to hit the shelves in the new year look ok and in keeping with my nautical background I do like the Racing yacht. The rest of the lineup I’m sure will appeal to Technic fans. In summary we will be getting 5 new Technic sets for early…

LEGO NEWS – OFFICIAL LOOK AT 2018 NEW YEAR LEGO CREATOR 3in1 SETS

Anyway while we wait fortunately we have had a flurry of official images posted on some of the themes coming in the new year. This time round it’s the turn of the LEGO Creator 3in1 series with 5 new sets forming the new year release. No one can accuse LEGO being a “stick in the mud” with…
