NEWS ROUNDUP – NEW LEGO GROUP CEO, NINJAGO CITY, OLD FISHING STORE AND MORE

You would be forgiven in thinking that there has been other news other than the constant stream of potential LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon teasers! Surprisingly there has been some rather big news like a new CEO at the head of the LEGO group or David Beckham attempting to take on the LEGO Disney Castle on a Emporio Armani towel in the sun (poor white bricks!). Let’s have a look at what has been swirling around in the news…

NEWS ROUNDUP – LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE, STAR WARS, BRICKTOBER-PERTH, LEGO WORLDS AND MORE

A few weeks back it dawned on me that Bricktober-Perth 2017 was only 10 weeks away and those that order a lot of LEGO from Bricklink know this time can been eaten away quickly when waiting on the postman! So I made a decision to concentrate on my display MOC, but in the process the blog took a bit of a hit on regular updates! To play catch up I have tried to squeeze the last week or so of…

NEWS ROUNDUP – LEGO DIMENSIONS WAVE 8, NEXO KNIGHTS, NEW CREATOR CAROUSEL? AND MORE

It’s been a big week and I feel tired just writing this news roundup. The week started with a quick visit to the grand opening of the new Melbourne LEGOLAND Discovery Centre. I say quick, but flying from Perth, Western Australia to Melbourne, Victoria is like flying from London to Moscow! However, it was worth it as it’s our first centre and has a certified LEGO store attached (see review). Meanwhile back in the AFOL LEGO world there has been a flurry…

Finally I’ve finished the week and I have a long weekend to look forward to thanks to a guy called Jesus – Thank you Christianity. However, the excitement doesn’t stop there for me. Monday I fly over to Melbourne for the grand opening of the first LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Australia (is it dorky for a 34 year old male to be so excited I can’t sleep?!). Though this may sound minor, for us in Oz it’s massive event as…

NEWS ROUNDUP – BRICK BURGERS, BRICKHEADZ PIRATE NEWS, MELBOURNE PICKS ITS NEW MASTER MODEL BUILDER AND MORE

This week kicked off by getting the appetite going and everyone asking when are we off to the Phillipines next? I have a feeling I will be tagged in burger posts for weeks to come – anyone remember the white shark? still get tagged in these posts (indigestion coming)! Thankfully it wasn’t all food and varied from new themes through to quirky Batman trivia. Enough said let’s have a look at some highlights below: Brick Burgers became an internet hit…

NEWS ROUNDUP – LEGO 2017 MOST POWERFUL BRAND, WAVE 8 DIMENSIONS PACKS, BATMAN MOVIE MAKER AND MORE

With all the news flying around I’ve resurrected the weekly news round up in hope of keeping up with all things LEGO. The week started off with a bang with the kick off of Nuremberg Toy Fair 2017 and some of the first images of up and coming winter (summer northern hemisphere) LEGO sets. For me the new Jungle City subtheme got my interest followed by a new direction for Friends venturing into winter sports. Anywhere let’s have a look…

Here we go again another news roundup and I have to admit I enjoy knocking up these little roundup blogs for the week. It’s been a varied week and we have had a massive announcement with the first official look at the 10 year anniversary LEGO Modular Assembly Square 10255 – TAKE MY MONEY NOW! In other news: New york designers Junho Lee and Hyun Chul Choi have designed a shopping bag that creates the illusion that the shopper’s hand is a…
