More LEGO Hidden Side Set Images from New York Toy Fair 2019

The 2019 New York Toy Fair is still going on but as far as the LEGO stuff is concerned, they only had a limited amount of things displayed. The main thing was the new LEGO Hidden Side theme that will be coming out later this year. If you didn’t know, LEGO Hidden Side uses an augmented reality system to bring the bricks to life, similar to LEGO Dimensions. The boxes of the sets were on displa [...]

These minifigures are exclusively available here and they look superb, featuring detailed printing on almost every available surfa [...]

5005256 Marvel Super Heroes Minifigure Collection promotion

The inconsistent distribution of the Bricktober minifigure packs inspired some disappointment last year and I think 5005256 Marvel Super Heroes Minifigure Collection was subject to particular attention. Fortunately, it has been announced that this minifigure pack will be available with any purchase exceeding $75 from shop.LEGO.com and LEGO brand stores during the first week of March! This has onl [...]

Comparing the LEGO Ideas The Flintstones (21316) to Submitted Project

The LEGO Ideas The Flintstones (21316) was officially announced yesterday and there has been a divide among fans of how the set came out. A few of you have asked me to compare the original project to the one that will be coming out later this week. I did have a clear look at the project when I was at Philly Brick Fest last year and here are my thoughts. As with other LEGO Ideas sets, there are di [...]

The impact of LEGO – A personal story?

The impact of LEGO – A personal story?

LEGO’s core business is, as we all know, selling toys. But over the years, LEGO has grown beyond that. For instance, after the Dark Ages, LEGO started realizing, that it’s not just children that build with the bricks, but a lot of adults are too. This resulted in themes like Modular buildings and Architecture. When LEGO introduced Mindstorms back in 1998, it was meant to get children i [...]

Celebrating 20 Years of LEGO Star Wars!

Celebrating 20 Years of LEGO Star Wars!

LEGO Star Wars is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year and five sets are being released to mark this occasion. Each model takes inspiration from a previous set which is a lovely idea, although I believe some of the retired sets that were selected are surprising. Now therefore seems like a perfect opportunity to discuss the Star Wars products which may benefit from an update. This artic [...]
