HispaBrick 37 On the Road

Our good friends over at The HispaBrick Magazine invited us to collaborate on issue 37 earlier this year. Little did we or they know the road ahead was going to be longer than expected.
We will let the HispaBrick crew explain about the bump in the road.
You can sit back and enjoy the ride in the latest 037 December 2021 edition.

Riding on Air

A few weeks ago, our good friends over at LEGO, sent us the newest and yet-to-be-released 42130 LEGO®Technic™ BMW M1000 RR for a photographic spin. Both Beverley and Natasja had the opportunity to take this ride out in the open air for amazing photoshoots, but the weather has not been kind to our two photogs.

Our one wanna be biker Bev brings you a little insight into what to expect followed by the official LEGO press release that launched earlier this week on the 9th December. And who does not like a juicy press release?

You can expect to see this superbike on sale January 1st, 2022 in a LEGO store near you.

Santa’s Visit

We know, we know it’s only September, so don’t panic. But do read on as we anticipate the arrival of a Santa’ Visit in the form of the wonderful new LEGO Christmas Winter Village set 10293 due for release on October 1st. But wait, Santa tells us there is a presale starting on 16th September for all LEGO VIPs. When we had news that our dear friends at The LEGO Group were sending us two presents ahead of release, we couldn’t resist getting all christmassy. We gave Julien and Bev the task of creating some Christmas magic.

The Blue Carpet

Today at 15:00 Billund Time the RLFM media got invited to the blue carpet unboxing event of the brand new MARVEL STUDIOS Minifigures. And of course, we also tried to get a little spot at the table. The heroes were so excited to finally officially get out of their bags and talk to the Big Boys like Brothers Brick, The Rambling Brick, Brickset, and New Elementary that a little bit of chaos erupted on the blue carpet.

Our local SiP presser nonetheless got his camera out and tried to catch a glance of our heroes and heroines before they ran off to their respective press meetings.

Hedwig

Can you ever have enough Brickheadz?

(No, you can’t)

When the crew of Stuck in Plastic asked us who might like to review some hot off the press LEGO Brickheadz I was quick to volunteer. Not least because my husband had suggested I can’t buy any more Brickheadz until I find a suitable way to display the ones I already have. Unsurprisingly one of the other SiP friends recommended that I look into a divorce lawyer with grounds of unreasonable behavior…

The mystery theme

I had no clue what theme these Brickheadz would be, so the parcel from LEGO HQ was hotly anticipated. Just imagine my heartbreak when the courier had delivered early one morning. While I was out walking the dog and although my neighbors had kindly taken the parcel in and then promptly left for work!

Hispabrick 36 in Space

It is time for a quick presser here from our good friends at Hispabrick Magazine.
They just released the latest Hispabrick 36 edition featuring our own Chris Rose on the cover making this a double joy.

But let the Hispabrick Crew explain it themselves:

This time we wanted to pay a little homage to our beloved Classic Space, so blue and grey is the prevailing colour in this issue.

Oton Ribić will explain a bit about the essentials of spacecraft design, Ahmad Sahar will teach us how to program LEGO Mindstorms RI5 with Python and with the help of the red astronaut, Mark Favreau teaches you the basics of how to take good pictures of your models.

We review the Classic Space sets that provided us with so many hours of playtime when we were little kids (or not so little) and if you are also a fan of retro videogames, you are in luck because Johan Alexanderson has combined these two hobbies and we will show you the online game he has created.

We continue to talk to and build links with the communities around the world and AFOLs from all over the world show us their creations in the Top MOC section.

And an exclusive behind the scene from Chris on how he shot the cover for Hispabrick Magazine 36 on page 61.

What better way to start your Sunday then with some fine reading.
