    This week's classic LEGO article has been contributed by Matthew, The Toymaker: Classic Town was founded in 1978. Its zenith was during the 1980s when it grew into a sprawling metropolis that continued until its star faded in the late 1990s. It lives on today of course in AFOLs’ attics and cupboards throughout the world and doubtless, in the hearts of countless others. It was a strange place to live, of course, being dominated by a vast public sector: policemen whose careers were devoted to setting up roadblocks or jailing non-existent criminals (at least until 6398 Central Precinct…

    South Park’s distinctive animation style may be deliberately simple, but there’s nothing particularly simple about the characters created by Rickard and Helen (whose nickname is appropriate, but best not repeated).

    BrickFair Virginia, one of the largest AFOL conventions in the United States, is coming up fast (so fast I completely forgot that I should post about this at least a week ahead of time)! To those unfamiliar with the event, BrickFair is a fun convention where LEGO fans showcase their creations, attend seminars, and can purchase cool items from various vendors, all in one place. BrickFair Virginia is the largest BrickFair and the only five-day LEGO fan convention in the States (and in the world if I'm correct).

    There were 568 entries in our competition to win FireStar Toys' custom Mr Inkredible and all but two got the answer correct, despite there being some debate about the hairstyle's proper name. Where I come from, it's called a mohican, so answer A was correct. Apparently in the US it's more often called a mohawk. Wikipedia states: "The mohawk (also referred to as a mohican) is a hairstyle in which, in the most common variety, both sides of the head are shaven, leaving a strip of noticeably longer hair in the centre." Anyway, the winner, drawn at random, is Dan Eaton.

    28 Jul 2014 | 12:27 pm
    While it’s fair to say that a lot of characters in the vast Gundam franchise run around dressed as giant robots (sorry, “mobile suits”), some of them do also use spaceships. And among the more iconic of those is probably the Archangel from ‘Cosmic Era’ spin-off Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, recreated here in mega-swooshable LEGO form by lisqr.

    Ordo is a multi-theme builder whom we haven’t featured nearly enough, I think. (Frankly, I suspect the broader LEGO builder community tends to overlook fellow builders whose primary theme is Star Wars — it’s a bit unfair, and I admit to passing over some pretty good Star Wars models myself from time to time.) Ordo has begun dabbling with steampunk, and this little vignette is packed with detail — as both steampunk and vignettes should be. The small steam-cycle and robotic drone are nice little steampunk builds in their own right, but it’s little touches like the…

    Apparently, I’m not the only one who finds the LEGO Simpsons Collectible Minifigures vaguely unsettling. Nooroyd has put the Krusty the Clown head to good use as rubber masks hiding the identities of a pair of bank robbers. Beyond the use of these minifig parts, the scene is wonderfully photographed, with overhead and ambient lighting.

    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.

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.

    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…

    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…

    On the last day of San Diego Comic Con 2014, the LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham panel was hosted by IGN’s Greg Miller and there were some surprises. TT Games’ Phil Ring and Arthur Parsons was on hand as well as some of the voice actors of the video game including Troy Baker, Travis Willingham, Laura Bailey, Scott Porter, Dee Bradley Baker, and Josh Keaton. One surprise that wasn’t really a surprise was that Adam West was also on the panel. During the panel, they did a recap of the new playable characters such as Bat-Cow, Booster Gold & Skeets, Hawkman, Adam West, Arkillo,…

    Today was the last day of San Diego Comic Con 2014 and also the last exclusive minifigure that the LEGO booth was giving away. The character that was given away was The LEGO Movie’s Unikitty however this version of her is a little different than the one found in the Cloud Cuckoo Palace (70803). This 16 piece exclusive Unikitty uses the same exact pieces as the regular one minus 2 pieces, the face and the pink 1×3 eyebrow piece. That totals 4 exclusive pieces to this set with the 2 faces and 2 eyebrows. The faces that are included in this set can make Unikitty become Cutesykitty and…

    Today at Day 3 of San Diego Comic Con 2014, LEGO has officially revealed the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Green Lantern vs. Sinestro (76025). The set was revealed during Preview Night on Kotaku but today attendees got a first-hand look at the set. As reported before, it will have 174 pieces and retail for $19.99 which is an awesome price point considering that fans don’t have to pay a lot of money to get the highly requested Green Lantern minifigure. One thing that is shown on Batman that was not shown in the reveal a few days ago is the printing on the wings. It seems that the wings are…

    Day 3 of San Diego Comic Con 2014 has passed and again, I bring back home with me another exclusive LEGO minifigure for this year. Today’s minifigure was the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman of Zur-En-Arrh. He is a fairly obscure character from DC and was introduced in France Herron’s 1958 Batman #113 Batman – The Superman of Planet-X. Zur-En-Arrh is actually a scientist names Tlano who was inspired to play the same role as Batman from Earth. In Grant Morrison’s resurrection of Batman of Zur-En-Arrh, he is a backup personality of Bruce Wayne used in case if he was…
