LEGO Seasonal 2017 Halloween Set First Look

The LEGO Seasonal 2017 Easter Egg Hunt (40237) has started to show up at LEGO Stores and on the back of the instructions, it shows this year’s LEGO Seasonal Halloween set. From the looks of it, the set shows off a large gate and in the background, there’s presumably a haunted house with an orange sky backdrop. There’s also a cauldron with some food stuff in it. The minifigures in [...]

LEGO Iconic Brick Calendar (40172) Available on Shop@Home

A few weeks ago, an image of the LEGO Iconic Brick Calendar (40172) appeared online and folks across the pond were able to purchase it. It looks like North America is able to purchase the set now on Shop@Home. The set contains 278 pieces and retails for $19.99. I haven’t seen it at the LEGO Store here yet but I assume it’s available at LEGOLAND. If someone can confirm that, I would app [...]

Review - 31062 Robo Explorer

Review - 31062 Robo Explorer

On New Year’s Day, I hadn’t planned on buying any Creator sets. Then, when I was in the store looking at other areas, I spotted 31062 Robo Explorer. The three builds looked great and it appeared they used a lot of the azure blue. The price was right ($19.99). Then – irresistibly – I saw that it had a light brick. And that’s how I decided to buy a Creator set on New Ye [...]

LEGO sets with pizzerias & pizza pieces

I have been working on turning the café side of the #10255 LEGO Creator Assembly Hall into a pizzeria, which got me looking for inspirations, and of course lots of pizza pieces. It is interesting to note that LEGO recently released several pizzeria related sets, which are definitely great resources for both design ideas and useful […] [...]

McDonald's Happy Meal promotions

McDonald's Happy Meal promotions

Yesterday we reported that the items offered in the next LEGO-related Happy Meal promotion are nothing to get excited about, but that hasn't always been the case. Since McDonalds first started offering toys with kids meals in 1979 LEGO-related items have been offered around a dozen times. The first was in 1983.

It is run by an Australian guy who makes things in the wild completely from scratch without using any modern tools or materials. He builds shelters, makes tools and primitive weapons, and grows/gathers his own food. He never speaks on his videos, so you […] [...]
