Fly Me To The Moon

Earlier this year I said that in the LEGO universe all sets that are space-related are my absolute favorites.
Please let me extend my statement: 
Every space-related set AND part of the LEGO Ideas theme are my most favorite sets.
(Yes, of course, the Monster Fighters do have a special place in my heart, too, just like Fabuland. But unfortunately, those were removed from the shelves long ago.)

So I was happily surprised when Hasan Jensen from the LEGO Ideas team announced on their blog that from the 1st of November 2017 there’d be a new set available:  21312 Women Of NASA.

A Review of the LEGO Elves Dragons

As soon as the winter started to reach its end, I began to think I should focus on a project during the summer. When Boris announced his plan of making us work on a summer project, not only I already had a few ideas, but I had already started to work on some of them.

Up to now, I’ve been quiet about these summer project ideas. I wanted to take the time to let my ideas mature before releasing anything publicly. The only persons who have seen the result of my summer photography are the old and new friends I met last month in Edinburgh.

But I think it’s about time to give a glimpse of what I’ve been doing for the past four months through a review of 3 LEGO Elves sets. Set 41172 The Water Dragon Adventure, 41175 Fire Dragon’s Lava Cave and 41179 Queen Dragon’s Rescue. (Moreover, last month’s word was LEGO after all!)

Where Is Anton.

Our latest creative contest #WhereIsAnton together with LEGO Ideas ended last weekend.  It was a real success with hundreds of photos tagged on Instagram. Since then, we’ve been browsing through all the awesome entries on Instagram, Facebook, Google+, Flickr and even 500px and LEGO’s own gallery to find the winners of this challenge.

Sleepless nights, painstakingly looking for chromatic aberrations, sensor dust, creative compositions and cheer creative fun kept your jury awake. A shortlist of nominations in different categories lead the jury to an almost all night hangout session to come up with the final nominations, some special category nominations with an extra honorary price and the ultimate three winners of the LEGO Idea House sets we are giving away. But first we want to thank ALL of you, for taking part in this fun creative context and we will for sure do it again.

Without further ado, time to get to the nominations … Continue reading “And the winners are …”

Anton Among The Waves

An Awesome Lake

My original idea for the Where is Anton contest was to go to the mountains and find an awesome lake. Maybe even take the lakeside lodge set I recently built and work that into the picture.  However, because of the crazy weather lately and the limited time, I instead resorted to something I could capture at home.

Only 4 days left …

Where Is Anton.

As some of you may have noticed, we are running a little creative photo contest here on Stuck In Plastic. We asked you to be on the lookout for Anton and share his adventures and sightings around the globe with us. And the images are pouring in. You still have four days (and that includes a full weekend) to get your Anton in. One fantastic toy photographer who did not wait until the last minute was Marco, our Adult Photographer from Italy.

A Tour of Ninjago City

Disclaimer

According to Admiral Ackbar, the new Ninjago City set is a trap for AFOL. I’ve personally been hooked with Ninjago two years ago when LEGO released the Temple of Airjitzu as part of its big scheme to conquer the world make Ninjago appealing to adults. As soon as I saw the first official pictures of the Ninjago city, I knew I wouldn’t wait long before buying it. So do not expect this photographic review to be objective.

Build your own Anton

“Where is Anton?”

Yesterday we announced our new contest. LEGO kindly offered us three copies of the Old Fishing Store to give away in our new contest. The theme of the contest is “Where is Anton?” Anton is the fisherman minifigure coming with the new set. Like Stacy, Julien, Stefan, and Stefan did, take a photo of Anton traveling with you.

But wait isn’t taking a photo of Anton in order to win his set a little contradictory…? Continue reading “Build your own Anton”

Where Is Anton

A must have iconic set.

When LEGO revealed the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store on the first night of the RLFM days, we knew we had just laid our eyes on a most gorgeous, iconic set. A collector’s item in the making.
Most probably one of the best sets of 2017.
A toy photographers dream.
A must have. Continue reading “Where Is Anton”
