NEWS ROUNDUP – NEW LEGO BRICKHEADZ, RETIRING LEGO SETS, JURASSIC WORLD LEGO 2018, BRICKTOBER-PERTH, DOUBLE VIP POINTS AND MORE

Very quickly sorry for the biggest gap in my blogging journey so far! It really has been a crazy and scary 4 weeks.

That final point has shaken me to the core, but thank god the little fella is back home after a 4 day stint…

It started with an innocent looking post back in early August of a dad building the LEGO Disney Castle (71040) for his kids.

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…
