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 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 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 DIMENSIONS OFFICIALLY CANCELLED

After a months of speculation Warner Bros, Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and LEGO have announced that LEGO Dimensions has been officially cancelled. While there will be no more expansion packs released existing packs will continue to be sold (pending stock) and the game server will be maintained for the foreseeable future.

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. It all started with a bout of man flu (seems quite superficial now!), then came Bricktober-Perth (was awesome), finally my son was rushed into hospital in an ambulance with a post tonsil removal hemorrhage. That final point has shaken me to the core, but thank god the little fella is back home after a 4 day stint…

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…
