TOYS R US LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE BRICKHEADZ PROMOTION

DAVID BECKHAM NEXT LEGO AMBASSADOR?

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…

LEGO IDEAS – “NASA SPACE SHUTTLE (SATURN V SCALE)” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Finally something to get me a little bit excited about this bunch of LEGO Ideas, though still not quite in the magical imaginative and unique category yet. The 5th LEGO Idea to make the second 2017 review panel launches off the back of the recent massive success of LEGO Ideas Saturn V Rocket (21309). This Idea takes the same scale (approx. 1:111) and applies it to a modernised LEGO Nasa Space Shuttle configured in its vertical takeoff configuration with Separating…

TOYS R US BRICKTOBER 2017 MINIFIGURE PROMOTION

TOYS R US BRICKTOBER 2017 MINIFIGURE PROMOTION

After last year’s disappointing Toys R Us promotion (2016) it looks like LEGO and Toys R Us have upped their game and gone for a Batman minifigure theme. The pace at which these new Batman movie minifigure variants are being churned out I think Batman may run the risk of overtaking Star Wars! While not a personal fan the minifigures are fun and quirky and sure to send collectors crazy! Image below thanks to Promo Bricks and Toys R Us…

IDENTIFICATION OF LEGO MINIFIGURES SOLVED – GOATLEG

IDENTIFICATION OF LEGO MINIFIGURES SOLVED – GOATLEG

I don’t know about you but I’ve recently found identifying random LEGO minifigures an absolute nightmare. Especially if there is a big AFOL dark age blanking out your knowledge (20 years for me!). I’ve tried the usual Bricklink and Brickset, but with minifigures the search parameters don’t really work if you’re not sure what you’re searching for in the first place. Well thanks to a clever AFOL we finally have a solution and while simple seems to work perfectly in trying to…

LEGO EDUCATION PANAMA CANAL 2000451 FREE GLOBAL SHIPPING

LEGO EDUCATION PANAMA CANAL 2000451 FREE GLOBAL SHIPPING

Back in July the team behind Panama STEM announced that the highly sort after limited edition LEGO Educational set Panama Canal 2000451 would be available for purchase globally. This was great news and generated a lot of traffic and comments on the blog and facebook page. However, though cheaper than the eBay resellers, the confusing Panama STEM website and cost of shipping was high and this put a lot of people off jumping in and buying the set. Well it doesn’t…
