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…

LEGO BATMAN MOVIE THE JOKER MANOR 70922 OFFICIAL IMAGES

Firstly apologies I’ve been head down bum up building and reviewing LEGO Creator Assembly Square 10255. Only half way through but stay tuned as I will also be adding a bit of Light My Bricks magic to the review! Anyway back to the matter in hand and LEGO dropped the news yesterday of a 3rd wave (1 set announced so far – I suspect more to come) of LEGO Batman Movie sets. The set in question is the one and…

LEGO STAR WARS UCS MILLENNIUM FALCON 75192 COMPETITIONS

After all the excitement of Force Friday’s announcement of a new LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), I kind of feel a little bit hungover with the realisation that I can’t afford it anytime soon without getting a divorce first. Well all is not lost as there are a few competitions already running with the chance to win one of these bad boys. I’ve listed the ones I know of already below: LEGO Rebrick is running their first ever…

UNIQLO LEGO T-SHIRTS WAVE 3 TEASER

A while back I highlighted in one of my news roundups that Uniqlo Clothing had released wave 2 of their LEGO branded T-Shirts (sorry I missed wave 1). Well thanks to Uniqlo Singapore we have our first teaser of wave 3 and it looks like the range is going from strength to strength. I have to admit I’m a massive fan of Uniqlo clothing and the quality and sizing is spot on. Looks like I will be adding to my LEGO…

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…

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…
