Alien Conquest battle pack coming soon

Alien Conquest battle pack coming soon

Eagle-eyed member Jarod98 found this 5 minifigure battle pack in the online LEGO catalogue, on page 37. It's not yet listed at shop.LEGO.com but the catalogue says it'll be $14.99 and available on June 1st. It looks like a great 'army builder', if a little pricey, however -- I hope I'm wrong -- but I suspect it'll consist primarily of 'components made in China' like other battle pac [...]

Edulyoung

Edulyoung

This pegasus sculpture by Edulyoung is beautiful enough to highlight here, but the Technic pedestal reveals there’s more to this flying LEGO horse than pretty white bricks. This video of the pegasus in motion quite literally took my breath away. Via Legobloggen. [...]

Free shipping, HP Hogwarts pre-order, Cars 2, Alien Conquest, and more

The new, smaller 4867 Hogwarts is now available for pre-order (out on June 1), with seven minifigs. Continuing with licensed themes, the SYSTEM-scale Cars 2 sets are out, and apparent [...]

Four fair lasses on a pirate

Four fair lasses on a pirate

Capt. Thomas Foolery lives up to his name with this amusing scene, in which several ladies of questionable character try to lure a pirate away from his online pursuits. Ladies: “Come back to bed, Cap’n!” Pirate: “As soon as I finish reading the Brothers Brick and posting to Eurobricks.” Yarrr! A wise choice indeed, matey! [...]

Goliath docking cradle

Goliath docking cradle

If anyone can make red and yellow look so good in a space MOC, then that builder is probably Mike Yoder. Mike’s latest addition to his North Central Positronics theme is a microscale docking station. The fact that it was completed in less than a week is as impressive as the build itself. [...]

Last Laugh

Last Laugh

One last from Havoc, a scene entitled the Last Laugh. Looking around, it seems that there was an episode of the Batman animated series with this title, and also a story arc spread over several DC comics. I can't tell from reading the synopses if this scene is from either of those, but we certainly have a good scene of the Joker seemingly triumphant. How will Batman escape? Tune in tomorrow ... [...]
