NEWS ROUNDUP – NEW LEGO GROUP CEO, NINJAGO CITY, OLD FISHING STORE AND MORE

NEWS ROUNDUP – NEW LEGO GROUP CEO, NINJAGO CITY, OLD FISHING STORE AND MORE

You would be forgiven in thinking that there has been other news other than the constant stream of potential LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon teasers! Surprisingly there has been some rather big news like a new CEO at the head of the LEGO group or David Beckham attempting to take on the LEGO Disney Castle on a Emporio Armani towel in the sun (poor white bricks!). Let’s have a look at what has been swirling around in the news…

SEASONAL HALLOWEEN SET REVEALED 40260

SEASONAL HALLOWEEN SET REVEALED 40260

After posting about the LEGO Thanksgiving set (40261), one of my followers highlighted that the official images were out for the promotional LEGO Halloween set (40260) as well – Turns out they have been in the public domain for nearly 6 months! After last years brick built Vampire and Bat I’m personally happier with the return to the mini dioramas. While I’m still a big fan of 2015’s outing (Trick or Treat 40122) I think this year’s set could be…

NEWS ROUNDUP – LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE, STAR WARS, BRICKTOBER-PERTH, LEGO WORLDS AND MORE

A few weeks back it dawned on me that Bricktober-Perth 2017 was only 10 weeks away and those that order a lot of LEGO from Bricklink know this time can been eaten away quickly when waiting on the postman! So I made a decision to concentrate on my display MOC, but in the process the blog took a bit of a hit on regular updates! To play catch up I have tried to squeeze the last week or so of…

SEASONAL THANKSGIVING SET REVEALED 40261

Every year LEGO releases various seasonal sets covering Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Chinese New Year, Thanksgiving and so on. Normally they are released as part of a promotion and occasionally country specific. This tradition seems to grow from strength to strength and some of these early promotions now fetch a healthy penny on sites such as eBay and Bricklink. Well thanks to a post by Almir Sadovic on Brickgeeks we have our first look at this years Thanksgiving promotion. 40261 covers…

LEGO EDUCATION PANAMA CANAL 2000451 GLOBALLY AVAILABLE

Back in November last year I bought you the news of a cool educational set being produced as part of a special release to commemorate the reopening of the expanded Panama Canal (2000451). The set has been designed around the new Neopanamax locks and shows how the lock mechanism works lowering and raising the water levels assisting vessels transiting through the canal between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Well massive thanks to Juan (follower of All About The Brick) for his heads up…

PROMOTIONAL MINIFIGURE PODS – BATMAN / NINJAGO / NEXO KNIGHTS / FRIENDS

PROMOTIONAL MINIFIGURE PODS – BATMAN / NINJAGO / NEXO KNIGHTS / FRIENDS

Back in December I reported on a new Battle Pod promotion that was being launched in conjunction with the then new LEGO Batman Movie.  The idea was simple and based around a promotional minifigure package in a cool little pod. The pod opens up to a reveal the minifigure one side and a little weapon station (not just weapons – more later) on the other side. I was really impressed and thought at the time that LEGO had hit onto…

LEGO CREATOR EXPERT LONDON BUS 10258 OFFICIAL IMAGES

Sorry it has taken me awhile to officially post on the new LEGO Creator London Bus (10258), I’ve been a bit preoccupied with The Brickman’s Wonders of The World Exhibition and my MOC for Bricktober-Perth 2017 (see previous 2016 roundup). Anyway I couldn’t leave this little gem in the non reported pile that would have been sacrilege considering my London/UK heritage! With the release of the mini London Bus late last year (40220) there was a lot of speculation that…

BRING A BIT OF LIFE TO YOUR BRICKS – LED ROUNDUP

Ever wanted to pimp up your LEGO creations? Well with the advent of micro LED’s, crowd funding and China’s huge and cheap manufacturing capacity maybe it’s time to consider adding that bit of lighting magic! It definitely has been on my radar and being a little bit of a tinkerer I’ve dabbed in wiring up my own LED’s with mixed results. The above was one of my more successful runs, created using micro LED’s ordered from eBay and soldering to…
