Well, that was fast. Just last month, LEGO Review Board had green lit two new LEGO Ideas set as part of the Second 2018 Review Results. One of the submission that has gotten the nod was The Central Perk Coffee of Friends, which we had excitedly featured here a couple of weeks ago, and the other was this: Steamboat Willie, a Mickey Mouse set based on the original cartoon character from 90 years ago, submitted by LEGO Ideas member Máté Szabó, AKA szabomate90.

True to its spirit as a company that’s all about fun and creativity, LEGO has taken a jab at Samsung foldable phone by ‘showing off’ its own “foldable” which it calls ‘LEGO Fold’. The “device” claims to sport “a stunning 5-inch cover display” that unfolds into “an 11-inch pop-up story book,” which it further adds enable “endless creative play that never runs out of battery.” That is obviously not a gadget. It is the LEGO Ideas 21315 Pop-Up Book released last quarter. Continue reading LEGO Takes A Jab At Samsung Galaxy Fold With Its Own “Foldable”
Fans of American television sitcom Friends (NBC, 1994-2004) can look forward to an official LEGO set featuring the classic gathering place in hit 90s series, known as The Central Perk Coffee.

It has gotten the 10,000 support it needed, but sadly, this freaking awesome LEGO MOC Acclamator-class Assault Ship didn’t get the nods from the LEGO Review Board (it loses out to Treehouse and Flintstones). Perhaps, it wasn’t mainstream enough like its successor, the Imperial Star Destroyer? For the uninitiated, the Acclamator-class Assault Ship was an assault-class capital ship of the Galactic Republic and it predates the Star Destroyer. Continue reading It Is Sad That This LEGO Ideas Acclamator-class Assault Ship Did Not Make It As An Official Set
Good news, fans of NBC’s interpretation of the popular British series The Office. The familiar office setting of the American’s version of the hit comedy series, along with key characters immortalized as minifigures, may just become an official LEGO set. I may not be a particularly huge fan of NBC’s The Office, but this LEGO MOC sure opens a floodgate of nostalgia in me. Anywho, The Office – NBC may be exists as a LEGO MOC created by LEGO Ideas member theoffice_lego for now, but a little over a year since it was submitted to LEGO Ideas, it has achieved the 10,000 support necessary for it to be reviewed by the LEGO Review Board in the First 2019 Review. Continue reading Good News! NBC’s The Office May Become An Official LEGO Set!
I hate to flood you guys with yet another LEGO Ideas submission, but seriously, the LEGO MOC Lamborghini Centenario by LEGO Ideas member Brick-A-Brac is too good to pass. Granted, Brick-A-Brac did not build it. All Brick-A-Brac had to pitch is digital model, but man, this LEGO Technic version the Lamborghini’s commemorative supercar looks absolutely stunning. I think Brick-A-Brac may bagged more support he (or she?) had built it. Continue reading Should This LEGO MOC Lamborghini Centenario Be An Official LEGO Set?
If you are into Japanese imports, chances are, you will know the animated series Initial D. And if you are fan (of Initial D), I bet you will appreciate this LEGO Ideas submission, LEGO MOC Toyota AE86, by LEGO Ideas member kosenLEGOmaker. For those who do not know, the entire series revolves around downhill drifting, a underground street racing phenomena in Japan, and the main character is Takumi Fujiwara who perfected his downhill drifting through delivering delicate home-made tofu in his father’s Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno GT Apex. Continue reading Folks, Lets Make This Awesome LEGO MOC Toyota AE86 Happen!

Continue reading Yabba Dabba Doo! LEGO Ideas Flintstones Is Finally Available!
I am not going lie. When LEGO first introduces BrickHeadz back in 2017, I think it is a complete BS. Then, somehow, this bobble head (though the head does not bobble) character building set of the Brick world started grow on me. Yes, I regret calling it a total bulls. My bad. I apologize for my myopic view on BrickHeadz. Anyways… my admiration for this small LEGO sets has gotten stronger – thanks to Kendall Brown who shown us that BrickHeadz can be absolutely cool.
