The Elves’ Treehouse

Last month, I got the chance to take part in a photo collaboration with LEGO on the new LEGO Ideas Treehouse. Thus, I got the opportunity to build and photograph this beauty before it was publicly unveiled. And it ended up being quite a surprise. (That said, it wasn’t the total surprise I was excepting. Like most people, I saw the leaked images that were circulating online while the set was on its way to Finland.)

Building The Future

Blue, Beard and ZEUX

A few weeks ago we told you the fantastic story of Blue and Beard and the LEGO Technic 42081 Volvo Concept Wheel Loader ZEUX.
If you haven´t yet read the story, now is a good time …

It´s easy to enjoy your coffee when ZEUX is doing all the hard work.

…because: when you return, inspired to design the future, it just even got better! LEGO Ideas teamed up with the LEGO Technic Designers and The Volvo Construction Equipment team to design the future.
A creative LEGO Ideas hackathon of inspiring ideas for the next generation.
That´s a lot of fun and space for curiosity at the same time.
Unconstrained thinking for Big Inc. with a creative twist.

PEGAX at work, maybe inspiring your next idea?

21314 LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy

[Music] Daft Punk music [/Music]

In a digital world dominated by the color black, only enlightened with touches of neon blue or neon orange, everyone is a program.

This could summarize the universe where TRON: Legacy, movie released in 2010 (sequel to TRON movie from 1982), takes place.

Later this month, LEGO will release a new set based on this license.

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.

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”

Caterham Seven

The Caterham Seven is a super-lightweight sports car produced by Caterham Cars in the United Kingdom. It is based on the original Lotus Seven, a fun sports car sold in a do-it-yourself kit by Lotus  from 1957 to 1972.  A built-it-yourself car that was originally delivered without any assembly instructions to avoid the hefty tax on ready-to-run cars (it did include a disassembly instruction instead).  So when our favourite build-it-yourself plastic brick company asked if we wanted to test drive the new Caterham Seven R620 LEGO Edition,  we Woody jumped on the opportunity and volunteered to take this beauty for a test drive.

Tintin

I woke up this morning to a lovely mention on Facebook of a new LEGO ideas of one of my absolute youth hero’s and I was instantly sold. This was not only a project I would like to see succeed because it looked cool, it is a project that will allow me to finally meet Tintin on the Death Star, and have Indiana (Junior) share his stories in the Cantina with Haddock and seriously expand the imagination of generations to come. My imagination and the rabbit hole of new adventures just exploded. Continue reading “Tintin”
