    If you’re from out of town attending San Diego Comic Con 2014 and want to take a little break from all the hustle and bustle of everything that is going on there, remember that San Diego does have a LEGO Store conveniently located at the Fashion Valley Mall. The MTS Trolley is right there at the mall and the Green Line runs every 10 minutes all the way down to the convention center. If you’re driving there, the address is 7007 Friars Rd, Space 965A, San Diego CA 92108. The LEGO Store is located right next to the food court on the second level and you can’t miss it. Although,…

    Once again the LEGO PR team has done a good job of spreading the news around about the SDCC exclusives, and Matthew has done a good job keeping up with it all and re-posting it here. I've now added the items to the database so if you want to see everything you'll never own in one place, here's a list of all SDCC 2014 exclusive items. If you go, and are able to secure some of the items, we'd very much appreciate better pictures for the database, so please get in touch, thank you. © 2014 Brickset.com.

    If, like me, you've spent the past 45 minutes constantly refreshing the raffle drawing thread in the forum (and if you haven't then get over there now!) you might have noticed CCC posting that a new Super Heroes set featuring Green Lantern has been unveiled at SDCC. I have to confess I initially thought it was a wind up, but it's true enough! 76025 Green Lantern vs. Sinestro will be available to purchase from January 2015 for $19.95 USD. It includes three minifigures, Green Lantern, Sinestro and Space Batman. Check out more images over at Kotaku. I'm heading back over to the…

    You all should have heard about SBrick by now, and I remembered it could be interesting to know something about your preferences and the uses you'll make of this.Please realize this is a unofficial poll of TBs own responsibility and it doesn't bound the SBrick team to the results that will be found here. First and since SBrick is planned at the moment to be produced in four colors (Black, LBG, Red and Yellow) I thought it would be interesting to know which are the preferences of the community. Eventually this could help the SBrick team to decide on the production amount of each color or even…

    25 Jul 2014 | 2:50 am
    Just in case you've forgotten, Peter Reid will be at Bluewater tomorrow from 12 - 4pm signing Exo-Suit boxes. If you see me, come and ask 'Are you Huw from Brickset?' and I'll give you a TLM poly (while stocks last). And, if you see Andy from MinifigForLife say hi to him too. He's also doing 'a fun friendly giveaway, no promises and no hassle': a salvage team pauldron (pictured -- but not the minifig!) that I reckon will look great on Pete and Yve's minifig shoulders. Our giveaways will be conducted outside the shop: we don't want to cause the shop staff…

    Suckmybrick just unveiled a series of 16 despots and notables, ranging from tinpot dictators to messiahs, and all sorts of historical figures in between. The caricatured style means there’s something to love about each of them, but for whatever reason the bad guys tend to be my favorite; who can stay mad at Kim Jong Il with those adorable glasses, or Castro and his tousled beard? Thanks to reader (and coworker) Chris Byrne for the tip!

    “All alone my pet?” As a kid the Old Hag scared me a lot, still does to this day, but this delightful rendition of the Old Hag from Snow White by Millie McKenzie (Leda Kat) is amazingly cute and adorable: The Old Hag is the fantastic centerpiece to the build, but I really like how she framed the build and all the details in the window, the broom and the chair.

    Arjan Oudekotte (Konajra) does not post new models all that often, but given the size of most of them, that is understandable and they are always well worth the wait. His latest model is the largest ship he has built to date, with a length of 196 cm (or roughly 6’5 for those of you who prefer antiquated measurement systems) and built out of roughly 32000 elements. The ship in question is a Dutch ocean-going tug called the Zwarte Zee (Black Sea). The ship was launched in 1962 and until 1984 served with the famous company Smit International, known around the world for large maritime…

    I went to Chicago a couple of weeks ago to attend the Brickworld LEGO convention, one of the largest such events in the world. As you probably know I am the president of Bricks by the Bay, our local convention here in the San Francisco bay area, and it’s good to get out and visit other conventions to network, pick up new ideas for our event, and just see what the rest of the AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO) world is doing. This was my third Brickworld; I had gone in 2009 and 2011. I arrived Wednesday evening at the convention and checked into my room. They were having a reception in the hotel…

The machine that hosted the Brickpile, along with BayLUG and Bricks by the Bay, along with some other personal domains that I and some friends owned, was hacked back in January, and then we got another site up briefly and it too was almost immediately compromised. But now this is the third try, this time hosted on Amazon EC3. Wish me luck. Speaking of Bricks by the Bay, we’re ramping things up for the convention this year and I’m really excited about it.

The Friends entry, however, is a really plain (if large) Christmas gift. I would have preferred a Friends figure with a Santa hat. That concludes the 2013 Advent Calendar series … look forward to another series of them next December. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all! I’ll be back tomorrow with a review of the things we found in the calendars.

    I was adding a new part to the database this morning, when I did something catastrophic -- the part name don't show up correctly.  I'll be spending the next few days correcting this error, as well as find a way to make the process of adding a new part less tedious.Stay tuned...  I'll post updates as I make progress.

    Heading into 2014, it's never a dull moment... I've been procrastinating on a project that I need to finish by mid January -- OrangeLUG will be participating in The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons Exhibition display at Orange County Regional History Museum.  As you can see, I'm working on a mosaic.  :)I'm using the Photobricks app for my iPhone.  I love and hate it; I have few different shades of orange and red that I'd love to incorporate into the mosaic, but the application has a limited pallet, but beyond that, it's been a wonderful! I've also recently spoke with…
  • The Wal-Mart Side Effect, part 2: Winning a Fight, but Losing the War

    So I didn't intend to write a blog follow up to The Wal-Mart Side Effect, part 1 just yet, but this is related...Here's something I think is funny... so I'm on eBay this morning, and one of the new features is displaying items similar to what I've searched for in the past... when I see the following mixed in with the results:What I suspect, with LEGO outsourcing many things to China, China is fulfilling the quota of parts, but making a few extra on the side, in the process -- I doubt there's any agreement in place to what the machinery does after the quota is fulfilled -- so…

    I don't know if you've had the same feeling as I had, looking at the new LEGO Movie sets coming out... I keep thinking Timmy & the Time Cruisers.  It's not that Time Cruisers was a bad line, it just felt like there was no real deeper story, than a few drunk designers got together one night over a few too many drinks with some spare parts from different themes and said "I know how we can save the company some money; we'll just take these excess parts from all these different themes and combine them in ways, like this guy Timmy is traveling through time."We may never know the truth why…

  • LEGO The Hobbit Bard the Bowman SDCC 2014 Exclusive Minifigure

    Here are some clearer images of the LEGO The Hobbit Bard the Bowman San Diego Comic Con 2014 exclusive minifigure. Earlier this morning I posted a picture from my potato phone but I’m home now so you can get a clearer look at him. As you can see from the packaging, it also says The Battle of Five Armies. I was also told today that this minifigure will be available in a set in the future just like Azog from last year. Ace over at FBTB also has confirmed this piece of news as well. For fans who really wanted Bard but couldn’t go to SDCC, you can rest assured that he will be…
  • Batman and Super Angry Kitty Attack (70817) Revealed at SDCC 2014

    Last week, we reported there will be a new The LEGO Movie set coming out in January 2015. Today at San Diego Comic Con 2014, LEGO officially announced the Batman and Super Angry Kitty Attack (70817). By releasing this set next year, it makes me think there will be more sets in the wave and not just having a fairly small set by itself. Unfortunately, the box does have the LEGO watermark on it so I can’t post pictures of it. It will consist of 115 pieces and retail for $9.99. The set is pretty much what you see above on the right. You get Batman with a new clenched teeth expression and a…
  • Alleged Theft of The Collector Minifigures from SDCC 2014?

    So this morning while I was standing in line waiting to get into the exhibit hall at San Diego Comic Con 2014, I was messaged on Facebook of a picture of someone having a bag full of LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy The Collector minifigure that was for Friday’s giveaway. These pictures were posted on the 4chan forums by a user named McBalderus. There have been no reports of theft of if the user has just messing with people although other members of the forum think that he was the same scalper person who bragged about selling a dozen from last year. I was at the first giveaway today for the…

    If you’re from out of town attending San Diego Comic Con 2014 and want to take a little break from all the hustle and bustle of everything that is going on there, remember that San Diego does have a LEGO Store conveniently located at the Fashion Valley Mall. The MTS Trolley is right there at the mall and the Green Line runs every 10 minutes all the way down to the convention center. If you’re driving there, the address is 7007 Friars Rd, Space 965A, San Diego CA 92108. The LEGO Store is located right next to the food court on the second level and you can’t miss it. Although,…
