LEGO THE HULKBUSTER: ULTRON EDITION OFFICIAL IMAGES

I was just about to call it a night (wrote three blogs this evening – Jurassic World, LEGO Ideas Stitch and The return of Harry Potter) when LEGO went and dropped the official announcement of the much rumoured The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition (76105) looks like another cup of coffee is in order! Whether you’re a Marvel fan or not how can you not get excited by a big massive mech suit. Impressively looking at the trailers to the movie the…

MUGGLE NEWS – LEGO HARRY POTTER MAKING A MAGICAL RETURN

It’s been hard trying to keep up with all the exciting news coming out of LEGO the last 24 hours! I had great intentions to finish building and start my review of Ninjago City (Really enjoying this build!), along with some other LEGO related projects I have in the mix, but alas I’ve become a news reporter this weekend :). Off the back of the full release of official images from the up and coming Jurassic World sets, we know…

LEGO STAR WARS KESSEL RUN MILLENNIUM FALCON 75212 OFFICIAL IMAGES

For those that don’t care or may be living under a rock, Disney are a few months off releasing their second non-jedi focused Star Wars movie called “Solo”. The premise to chronicle Hans Solo’s (also Chewbacca and the legendary Millennium Falcon) early life before Star Wars Episode IV. Like shoes (keep with me on this thought) you can never have enough and it appears LEGO has adopted this approach with the Millennium Falcon announcing yesterday that they will release a…

UNIQLO LEGO T-SHIRTS 60TH ANNIVERSARY WAVE

UNIQLO LEGO T-SHIRTS 60TH ANNIVERSARY WAVE

It’s ironic that I was sitting with my morning coffee today having a discussion with my wife about buying some new summer T-shirts. Straight off the bat she looked at me and said “no more LEGO T-Shirts your becoming obsessed” which I responded with “don’t worry Uniqlo haven’t released any new designs since wave 3” Well to the horror of my wife when I checked the Australian Uniqlo website low and behold a new 60th Anniversary wave was sitting there…

NUREMBERG 2018 TOY FAIR ROUND UP

This time of year normally marks a blizzard of news and images of new and exciting LEGO sets. However, other than an image or two of the new Jurassic World sets it’s been more like a small flurry. Previously the source of all the excitement was the Nuremberg Toy Fair, but like the London Toy Fair (though LEGO didn’t exhibit this year) LEGO has decided to put in place a no picture taking policy. Our European blogging cousins over at Zusammengebout and PromoBricks still…

LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS 2018 SETS REVEALED

With my kids now wide awake and causing havoc Ninjago City building has been put on hold, but thanks to the Disney film Moana I’ve squeezed a little time in to bring the official images of LEGO’s 2018 Speed Champions line up. This years line up is split between Ford, Ferrari and Porsche and builds on a very successful theme for LEGO. I’m personally a casual collector, but love the solid weighty build and the clever use of existing and…

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…
