Letting my mind drift in the heavens above I wonder if this is a hint of a new yet to be announced and much wanted space theme?

5AM LEGO WAKE CALL – NEXO KNIGHTS NEED A FRIDGE DAD!

5AM LEGO WAKE CALL – NEXO KNIGHTS NEED A FRIDGE DAD!

So before I begin let me paint a picture – Every day I get woken up at 5am by my wonderful kids (thank god I’m a morning person)!

Sadly the eldest 5 and…

This meant that the only way to get our hands on blue baseplates for the last few years has been through resellers…

Well it seems there is still life in the Minecraft license with LEGO just officially releasing images of 2018’s lineup (thanks to The Brick Fan).

Based on a Mack Anthem truck with lifting and lowering mechanism for the transportable…
