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…

THE BRICKMAN’S WONDERS OF THE WORLD EXHIBITION PERTH

THE BRICKMAN’S WONDERS OF THE WORLD EXHIBITION PERTH

Today 11 years ago I embarked on the journey of my lifetime and travelled to Perth, Western Australia in search of a better (warmer) life marking the end of a period of travel when I went visiting major landmarks around the world. Therefore it seems fitting that today I got a chance to head down to The Brickman’s Wonders of the World exhibition in Perth, Western Australia. The Brickman is the brainchild and creation of Ryan McNaught (LEGO certified Professional, one…

LEGO MOC TIME – “ITALIAN RESTAURANT”

LEGO MOC TIME – “ITALIAN RESTAURANT”

On a nice cold evening in Perth, Western Australia (yes it does get cold here!) I’m sitting here tucking into a lovely home made pasta and knocking back a red wine. Not normally a scene that stirs emotions and thoughts around LEGO – Well that is unless you’ve just seen one of the best Italian Restaurant LEGO Modular MOCs. Thanks to Olímpio Alexandre (Alex) that’s exactly what just happened and it is a masterpiece! Being partial to modular building (owning 7…

BRING A BIT OF LIFE TO YOUR BRICKS – LED ROUNDUP

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…

LEGO NEWS – LEGO THE NINJAGO MOVIE OFFICIAL SETS 2017

Funny whenever I decide to tackle a big build along comes a flurry of news. In keeping with this trend in the last week we have been graced with the first look at the LEGO Ninjargo Movie sets. Luckily by being a bit slack I can also combine with the recent news of an epic and I mean epic LEGO Ninjago Movie themed Modular! Looks like LEGO has thrown all their weight behind the LEGO The Ninjago Movie set line…

LEGO IDEAS – “THE WONDERS OF PERU” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

2 weeks of radio silence from a Blogger is a lifetime, but Assembly Square (all 4,000 bricks) has me bunkered down trying to finish the build and review. Thankfully this is the last large model of the year. Tricked you, that couldn’t be further from truth if I tried – Thanks LEGO! My wallet and spare time has to cover the Saturn V Rocket, new Carousel, Old Fishing Store, London Double Decker Bus / UCS Millennium Falcon (big question mark…

REVIEW – LEGO TECHNIC OCEAN EXPLORER 42064

REVIEW – LEGO TECHNIC OCEAN EXPLORER 42064

I have to admit previously I had only ever built one LEGO Technic set in my lifetime and that was back in 1992 (Front End Loader 8828). I was giving the set as a Christmas present at the height of my pre dark ages LEGO obsession. Being polite I thanked my grandparents for the present, but I wasn’t a fan and clearly made this known over the following years as my LEGO collection continued to grew while Technic never made an appearance again….

July will mark the general release of the new humongous LEGO Minecraft The Mountain Cave 21137 (if you haven’t grabbed it already…
