I guess you don’t have to wait till Triple Force Friday (October 4th, 2019) to see new Star Wars toys. Disney-owned Star Wars franchise has previewed a slew of products from Hasbro, Funko! and LEGO that it will be bringing to Star Wars Celebration Chicago, happening from April 11-15 at McComick Place, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999, Lucasfilm). Man, 20 years! It seems like it was just yesterday we were treated to the most non-defining Star Wars yet. Oops. Sorry, I didn’t mean it to come out that way. Continue reading Star Wars Celebration Chicago Exclusives Previewed
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.

Two years in the making, LEGO enthusiast Brick Builder’s LEGO MOC Titanic (not to be confused with Australia’s The Brick Builder who was responsible for the Guinness World Records’ Largest Brick Caravan, btw) is finally completed. Coming in at 2.4 meters (around 7.9 feet) long and packing 11,000 LEGO elements, this LEGO MOC Titanic features quite a number of details, including the lifeboats that were never enough for the 2,208 people onboard, smokestacks, and other deck details – though it is not as detailed as the 120,000-brick creation by The Brickman that features the final moment of the supposedly unsinkable cruise liner. Continue reading Brick Builder’s LEGO MOC Titanic Is Finally Completed!
You may remember the Largest Caravan Built with Interlocking Plastic Bricks from a few years ago? Well, as it turns out, that impressive 215,518-brick camper trailer’s record was wiped by another custom LEGO caravan built last year by Australia’s Ben “The Brick Builder” with a caravan built from 288,630 individual bricks. The caravan was a project sponsored by Caravanning Queensland and Top Parks from a concept by John Cochrane Advertising (all Australian) and the record set in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, on September 26, 2018. Continue reading The Largest LEGO Brick Caravan From Australian Has 300K Bricks
Do You Know That LEGO Actually Had Anti-LEGO Slippers? Well, I sure the hell didn’t! It was real product, btw, from LEGO, from 4 years ago. The story behind this pair of tongue-in-cheek slippers was, you know, to take the pain out of your feet if you ever stepped on LEGO bricks. Now, we are know how painful that is. It is excruciating. So unbearable is the pain that someone who went through labor three times said that it hurts more than giving birth. Continue reading Do You Know That LEGO Actually Had Anti-LEGO Slippers? Yup, They Sure Did
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. Originally a LEGO Ideas submission by 32-year-old LEGO enthusiast Aymeric Fievet, AKA Mric76, submitted way back in October 2016, Mric76’s LEGO Ideas The Central Perk Coffee of Friends had garnered 10,000 support necessary for it to be reviewed by LEGO Review Board and subsequently gotten the nod of approval by LEGO Review Board last month. Continue reading LEGO Ideas The Central Perk Coffee Of Friends Approved By LEGO!
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!
Recreating scenes of Star Wars in LEGO is not new. Despite us seeing quite a few previously, we never cease to be amazed by the dedication of this LEGO enthusiasts. David Hall is the latest to join the handful of elite builders who did the same and his recreation? The final battle, i.e. Battle of Crait AKA siege of Crait, in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. You know? That scene where Luke Skywalker magically appears to ain’t the resistant in fighting of the First Order troops? Yeah, that one. TBH, that was not one of the defining moments in Star Wars franchise and it never will be, but anti-climax movie moment aside, Hall’s build is nevertheless an impressive build.
