    Considering all the rubbish TV shows I used to love as a child, I was undoubtedly very good at suspending my disbelief. However, even as a child I knew Dinobots make no sense whatsoever. I can understand that, for a robot of alien origin on Earth, the ability to turn yourself into a car and blend into a crowd might make some sort of sense. However, disguising yourself as a 15 ft. tall metallic dinosaur does not strike me as a particularly sensible way to become inconspicuous. I am also sure that their personalities irked me. Still, that does not mean Dinobots cannot be exceedingly cool as…

    If you’ve built the LEGO Brick Calendar 853195, you might have discovered that it’s a real pain to rearrange it each month. So I’ve created my own version, using the parts from that set plus others from my collection, to create a better version: Front view (January 2015) For comparison, here’s the original LEGO set. You have to completely take it apart and rebuild it each month, and I don’t really like all the colors so I simplified the color scheme as well. My version also includes the digits of the year built mosaic-style. The “20″ on the left side…

    As the current Iron Builder contest nears its conclusion, both teams continue to churn out amazing builds. But after many rounds of being cut to length for one purpose or another, the ribbed flex-tube seed parts seem to be getting progressively shorter and shorter. That doesn’t seem to be hampering their efforts though, judging by these two wonderful scenes by Tyler Clites:   Long-in-the-tooth readers might even notice that the old lady in the scene above is actually a reprise of a character that Tyler built for a previous Iron Builder contest – right down to the use of the…

    When a certain young naturalist by the name of Charles Darwin joined the HMS Beagle on it’s historic 2nd voyage in 1831, camera photography was still something of an experimental science. So capturing a visual record of the trip was the responsibility of a ship’s artist, like Conrad Martens. Historical LEGO scene builder James Pegrum has recreated one of Martens’ more unusual sketches from the trip, showing the Beagle beached for repairs at a spot near the mouth of the Rio Santa Cruz (Argentina).

But what really steals the show for me is the amazing train. The engine is what microscale is all about – using existing pieces in completely different fashion. In this case using the familiar spring loaded cannon base for the little blue engine that could.

Snowman The most detailed of these is a snowman, built using three LEGO spheres stacked. I used Bram Lambrecht’s sphere generator. The middle sphere is a fairly standard 6.8 stud diameter Lowell Sphere, and the top and bottom ones are one stud less and greater in size. Mounting the carrot nose was the hardest part and I’m not too happy with the solution I came up with.

Having built all 72 models, I’ve come up with some winners for the best model in each category. Best Christmas Tree: Friends Day 21 There were two trees (and one droid that looked like a tree) but I picked this one because of the pyramid piece and heart at the top, and the brown showing through between the layers. The City tree seemed underwhelming, though it had more variety in the colors of ornaments/lights.

    We got to know about the list of names for the 2H 2015 LEGO Technic sets, a couple of weeks ago! 42040 - Fire Plane42042 - Crawler Crane42043 - Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245Among my first impressions and my best guesses, I was convicted about a new incarnation of 8288 Crawler Crane from 2006, eventually at a larger scale and some motorized functions.Concerning the Mercedes-Benz Arocs and from the several possibilities we can find from images available online, I imagined a dump truck. It could a nice fit with the last flagship, the 42030 Volvo L350F Wheel Loader. This would eventually boost sales…
  • Have been playing with SBrick these days...

    27 Dec 2014 | 3:51 pm
    Yes, as the title suggests I've playing a bit with a couple of SBrick prototypes (v3 and v4.1) these days, while the definitive are on their way to my mailbox.Since a couple of profiles were prepared for some of my favorite LEGO Technic official models which run with the iOS app, I started doing some footage last weekend and here it follows the results... I started with 8043S in front of a real Excavator and Wheel Loader in a seaside rock jetty repair scenario.It was a sunny day in December, so it was nearly impossible to see what's going on in the iPhone app and I didn't have the laptop with…

    Don't ask me how but sometimes LEGO official produced videos pops first somewhere else than LEGO website or even their own YouTube Channel... So it was again the case for the LEGO Technic Designers videos presenting the new 1H 2015 set, which appeared in the YT channel of a Dutch store. And here they are in order of the set reference.42031 - Cherry Picker42032 - Compact Track Loader42033 + 42034 - Record Breaker + Quad Bike42035 - Mining Truck42036 - Street Motorcycle42037 - Formula Off-Roader42038 - Arctic Truck42039 - 24 Hours Race CarIt is missing the 42041 Race Truck, but nothing new as…

  • Amusement Park

    Mike Walsh
    24 Jan 2015 | 1:09 pm
    Pictures from an Amusement Park I built for a mid-2000’s NCLTC train show but it also appeared at LEGO Palooza in Chapel Hill on several occasions.  Originally it was just two rides.  The amusement park sits on four 64×64 baseplates in a 2×2 pattern. I spent a lot of time on the “Spider” ride getting the arms to go up and down as the ride turned.  The Carousel was loosely modeled after something I saw in a LEGO publication.  My brother-in-law built most of the little stands you can see along the side, the dunking booth in particular was well done and always got…

  • Some of my remaining LEGO Trains

    Mike Walsh
    20 Aug 2014 | 10:02 am
    As part of my big purge I also decided to part with some of the LEGO Trains I have which are still in boxes, some of which have never been opened or still have their inner bags sealed.  I don’t want to sell everything but I really don’t need 10 copies of the 4536 Blue Hopper either (although it is one of my favorite train sets and at one point I did own 10 copies of it). Periodically I get a query on the condition of a particular set.  I recently had a serious collector looking for a pristine copy of the Limited Edition 10020 Santa Fe Super Chief and I had one listed on…

  • Super Bowl XLIX Commercials Recreated in LEGO in the Brick Bowl

    Allen "Tormentalous" Tran
    28 Jan 2015 | 11:23 pm
    The NFL Super Bowl XLIX will be happening this Sunday and will vie to be the most watched sporting events on television. Throughout the game, advertisers will be showcasing their $4.5 million commercials which last for about 30 seconds and they hope it will stay in the minds of millions of viewers. So what does this have to do with LEGO? UK-based animation studio A+C Studios is planning on recreating all of the commercials that will be shown during the Super Bowl in LEGO form with 36 hours in the Brick Bowl. Once half time of the Super Bowl begins, the team will watch the ads at their 5,000…

    To kick off the Lunar New Year overseas, HBO Asia will be premiering The LEGO Movie on February 19 and if you’re subscribed to the channel, you can pick up yourself a packet of these snazzy The LEGO Movie red envelopes. These envelopes feature all the main characters of the movie but is missing Wyldstyle for some reason. Geek Culture notes that you can get one of these packets at any Starhub locations but you may want to verify first. As someone who will be celebrating the Lunar New Year next month, I wish I could get my hands on something like this but I probably won’t be able…

    As we mentioned yesterday, the LEGO Star Wars sets were displayed at the 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair but photography was prohibited but that won’t stop reports from coming out describing them. Michael over at Promo Bricks mentions there will be a new line of construction figures that will look similar to General Grievous (10186) from 2008. However, these sets won’t have any TECHNIC pieces and will be like the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ultrabuild sets from 2012. Michael also mentioned that they will be available in October but from the report we got a few weeks ago, they will be…

  • LEGO Castle Fantasy Era Sets Coming Back in 2016?

    Allen "Tormentalous" Tran
    25 Jan 2015 | 4:35 pm
    In 2013, LEGO brought back the LEGO Castle them and to say the least, it was a pretty underwhelming theme in my opinion. It was a one-off wave which featured the blue Lion Knights fighting against the red Dragon Knights and it combined things from the Kingdoms and the 2007 Castle subthemes. The sets came out in the Spring of 2013 and there were no subsequent waves in 2014 and won’t be any in the first half of 2015. However, there’s a rumor on Eurobricks that LEGO might be bringing the LEGO Castle theme back in 2016. According to BrickJagger, there was a memo sent out to a LEGO…
