Starspeeder 3000 When Disney bought Lucasfilm a lot of people asked me how I felt about it. I explained that it seemed totally natural. After all, Star Tours opened in 1987, and since then there's been an ever growing presence in the parks and in the company. So it's been happening for 30 years, it wasn't a shock at all to me.

Minifigure hairstyles - which styles were a cut above the rest in 2017? Looking back, it felt as though 2017 was a year full of minifigures sporting cool hairstyles. I imagine the release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigure Series had a key role in supplying these modern hairstyles, along with Batman and the odd Star Wars eclectic hairstyle.

LEGO Powerpuff Girls Announcement Comes As No Surprise Especially if you've been keeping up with the leaks. There was a time where I would have died with excitement over these.

Batman Ninja Looks Good Call me crazy, but this looks good. Warner Bros. does a lot of direct-to-DVD Batman feature animation releases.

Chinatown As a testament to how much there is to see at a LEGO convention I don't recall seeing this at BricksLA 2018. How the heck did I miss it?!? As if a highly detailed street scene isn't difficult enough to built, Benjamin_Rose added a steep hill to his brilliant Chinatown street.
Oxford Korean army-builder battle-pack All in all, I really like this battle-pack. I'm particularly happy with the armored horses, and the pearl-silver weapons. The armor pieces and helmets are very nice too, and a few years ago they would have been a huge deal with LEGO fans.

Review: 30542 Cute Pug 30542 Cute Pug is one of five polybags currently available in Tesco stores in the UK.

Its head can be rotated to enhance the cuteness of its pose.
Back of the Bus It's Valentines Day here at The Lego Car Blog Towers, but with only the Elves bringing us anything we may as well get straight down to some tenuously-linked Lego models!
Touch of lime makes for a refreshing mech Well here’s a LEGO mech model which breaks the mould — it’s not grey for a start! Jayfa‘s creation is a creative mix of Technic parts, “Constraction” big-fig pieces, and regular LEGO, and it looks awesome. The hunched over shoulders and the “face” lend it an appealingly sinister aspect, and the lime green highlights provide…

An actual LEGO locomotive that distributed LEGO bricks A Köf or Klienlokomotive literally means a "small locomotive"and, in the 1980s, LEGO utilised a yellow Köf at their German LEGO distribution center in Hohenweststedt.

Review: 75193 Millennium Falcon Microfighter The release of 75193 Millennium Falcon Microfighter does not therefore come as a surprise because this set is bound to prove popular, despite its similarity to 75030 Millennium Falcon from 2014.

Space squirrels take to the slopes So this LEGO scene by Miro Dudas apparently depicts Space Squirrels competing in a bobsleigh event on the Neptunian moon of Triton. Nope, me neither.

A new take on the old Samus Aran There have been been many attempts to recreate Metroid’s Samus Aran in LEGO before, with each one bringing something new to the table. This version by Logey Bear forgoes System bricks for a combination of Technic and “constraction” figure pieces.
The Billion Brick Race Loses Director Way back in 2015, I reported that Warner Bros. was working on a new animated LEGO film called The Billion Brick Race. Originally, Jason Segel and Drew Pearce were on board to co-direct the film but was eventually replaced with The Book of Life's Jorge R.
The day when Anakin turned into Darth Vader There are a few epic scenes in the Star Wars prequels, and Darth Vader's transformation is certainly one of them.

LEGO Technic 42077 Rally Car Cars are the very essence of the LEGO Technic philosophy. Supercars, buggies, Formula 1 cars or wild futuristic concepts - there's no car you can't build with LEGO Technic pieces. And it's not just about the design, but also about the models' functionality; any car can be equipped with a gear box or all-wheel drive.
Summary for the week Feb. 5 - This week has been all about 1) using up parts, 2) getting more parts, and 3) returning to 1. The land side of the cargo harbor area went from a field of plain baseplates to a 3/4ths tiled-in yard with a "done for now" warehouse and an admin / operations building.
Find your link to nature How do you create a tree using chains? It seems an unlikely element to form the organic branches of a bonsai tree, but in this creation by Tim Schwalfenberg, each of the connected links forms a knot on the gnarled bark. The result is highly original and undeniably striking.
Swan Lake ballet automaton built from LEGO Automata built from LEGO always amaze and inspire me.

Ascending from the plains into the foothills Master microscale landscaper Full Plate brings us another lovely LEGO scene that captures the moment on a roadtrip when he finally reached rolling hills and winding roads instead of the boring plains he’d been driving on.

Recon Shuttle I absolutely love the presentation of this cool shuttle by Horcik Designs. See how the lighting of the background for the most part matches the lighting of the ship? That's an often overlooked detail when photographing MOCs with the intention of editing over a background.
Review: 60179 Ambulance Helicopter However, 60179 Ambulance Helicopter features a bright red and yellow colour scheme so really stands out, not least because these colours are unusually faithful to real rescue helicopters. The price of £17.99 or $19.99 appears very reasonable for a set containing 190 pieces and three minifigures, each of whom includes new elements.
Kiss My RS Ford's current 345bhp all-wheel-drive Focus RS has gained worldwide recognition for being, well… mental. Now sold in the U.S, Ford are showing their traditional customer base that you don't need five litres and eight cylinders to make a performance car.

Huge LEGO Star Wars carbon-freezing chamber from The Empire Strikes Back One of the most moving scenes in The Empire Strikes Back is when Darth Vader freezes Han Solo in carbonite and hands him over to Boba Fett.

The coziest hole you ever did see Last month we featured Patrick B.'s lovely version of Bag End, Bilbo's house in the Hobbit and later Frodo's in The Lord of the Rings. It turns out Patrick wasn't done making cheery hobbit holes, though, as now he's followed up with Samwise Gamgee's home on Bagshot End, which is just as welcoming and snug.

It's made up of around 2,000 pieces. I have since created a spaceship bridge for the Moments in Space competition. It was fun to make something to specific dimensions and with a very tight deadline.
This Facility Is Crude… Han Solo just can't get a break. First Greedo tries to shoot him, then he almost gets squished in a trash compactor, then he almost gets swallowed by a giant space slug, then he's turned into a scoundrelsicle. This carbon freezing chamber by I Scream Clone is one of the coolest I've ever seen.
Green Sea Rock Lighthouse Dioramas don't have to be huge or elaborate to be impressive. They don't need to be loaded with figures to tell a story. And they don't need to be busy or intricate to be detailed. This MOC by W. Navarre is compelling without being over-the-top and I find that fascinating.
2018 LEGO City Mountain Police review SMALL LEGO CITY MOUNTAIN POLICE SETS: The smallest of the LEGO City Mountain Police sets is the #60170 LEGO City Off-Road Chase with two minifigures, a police motorcycle and a little brick-built hiding spot for stolen gems.

A whimsical world with a waterfall Whether in person or through the tubes and pipes of the internet, looking at a LEGO castle diorama has always been somewhat akin to viewing a renaissance painting in an art gallery for me.

One small step for man, one giant leap for pug-kind I'm starting to get suspicious that LEGO builders are creating pug-themed creations because they know I'll feature just about every single one.

Review: 75205 Mos Eisley Cantina I have therefore been looking forward to building the set and hope it will match the high quality of 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina.
