And the winners are …

The whole crew is traveling back from Skærbæk today. Some of us took a quick detour across the Peeeee Shop with a lot of other AFOLs, while others had to catch a plane or a ferry. A day of travels. A day of first reflections on a weekend that was just awesome in many ways… (But more on that later this week.) First, we have some winners to announce for our SiP goes BrickHeadz creative challenge. Winners we handpicked yesterday in Skærbæk.

One year ago today- and what happened along the way

Time went by quickly

I know this is cheesy, but it seems to me the older I get, the faster time goes by. Right now it feels like it’s rushing by at the speed of light.

This morning Ian sent me some pictures from exactly one year ago and simply asked: Can you believe it? Honestly, I hardly can. One year ago we met in Edinburgh, Scotland for our annual toy photo safari. Looking back it was a short yet fantastic weekend meeting old and new friends, driving to the Highlands, playing amongst waterfalls and climbing hills and monuments. But that was only one year ago??

La Divina Commedia

I Promessi Legosi

“La Divina Commedia”, in English The Divine Comedy, is a narrative poem written by Dante Alighieri. Dante is one of the fathers of the Italian language. It is widely considered to be the preeminent work in Italian literature and is well known outside Italian frontiers.
Hi, I am Fabio, and I started to think about LEGO and literature about two years ago when I decided to recreate another Italian masterpiece.
I Promessi Sposi or The Betrothed.  A historical novel by Alessandro Manzoni, which has been called the most famous and widely read book in Italian language.

Go. Brick. Me!

My family and I were lucky enough to get a Go Brick Me set sent to us from the good folks here at SiP to make a review. Not one of those signed boxes you can win in the contest but still a cool box shipped by the LEGO store here in the US.

My kids and I  have been looking forward to building some custom Brickheadz but hadn’t had the opportunity to get this set until now. Continue reading “Go. Brick. Me!”

And the winner is ….

Summer Holidays

Summer holidays are behind (most of) us.
Preparation for the next big event we will be participating in is well underway.
Life outside plastic is keeping some of us busier then we would like it to be. And amidst all of that and some more, we are running a little creative contest.
A challenge to explore one of our less known LEGO figurines.
Not the Voltron.
And not the classic space cowboy.
Or the Harry Potter series.
No.
The one and only Brickheadz. Continue reading “And the winner is ….”

SiP goes BrickHeadz

BrickHeadz at the RLFM 2017 days

Last year during the RLFM days, we had the pleasure of meeting and discussing with the ones and only BrickHeadz designers, Marcos Bessa and Austin Carlson.
(We even gave them a challenge we still have to blog about.
We are slow cooking here.)
When we met at the little elevator room somewhere in an undisclosed location in Billund these two awesome dudes told us about the past, the present and the future.

Curious what Marcos and Austin are both playing with?

They told us that the BrickHeadz started with a cute little elephant they made for a colleague. Continue reading “SiP goes BrickHeadz”
