Tell a story

Huston, July we had a problem

And what happened to our sense of humour? We do have one , saying that as a team with the exception of @herrSM, we are guilty for not joining in last month, so please accept our apologies for our absence. As a result we did not have many entries either and choosing a winner was an easier task than normal. Thank you so much to everyone else who entered. So drum role please…

#SiPgoesCinquecento

Contest Closed

Some weeks ago we asked you to join a little contest. We wanted to see your version of a FIAT500 in front of/next to/on top of your favorite landmark. The car itself didn’t have to be the real deal. The original from 1957. Neither one of the LEGO Creator Expert that hit the shelves recently.
You could just build one yourself (preferred out of your favorite bricks, called LEGO).

Notes From The Road- A Reminder

My oh my, so many new LEGO sets and awesomness has been released recently or is just about to. 

Got A Camera Close At Hand?

Two weeks ago we told you of our first hands keys-on of the new 10271 Creator Expert FIAT nuova 500, remember? We told you how much we fell in love. And we also told you that we´re giving away two copies of this yellow Italian marvel of engineering art straight from Billund.

So, why am I going on toy safari in Edinburgh?

First, a little background

My name is Matt, also know as Hellbelly on pretty much every platform, I’ve been taking photographs for about 15 years, and taking toy photos for around 11, although over the last couple of years I’ve been suffering a bit of a creative slump, and have had limited time and inclination to take photos.
This is one of the reasons I’m going to Edinburgh. Continue reading “So, why am I going on toy safari in Edinburgh?”

Friends

One of the unique gifts I have received here on Stuck In Plastic in the last three years is the gift of friendship. Making new real live friends.
Friendships that go beyond the short thumbs up social interactions or becoming friends on Facebook.
Friends that turn into real live deep connections.

I unknowingly bumped into one of those special friendships at the Stockholm Airport in the summer of 2015.
It was the first ever European SiP toy safari and I was pretty nervous to pick up some of these friendly “strangers” and be their host for three days in our place.
So when I entered terminal 5 from the parking lot with a smaller SiP sign in my hand, I got instantly welcomed by a warm hearted stranger with a bear hug and a broad smile (yes, I was late to pick up my guests) … Continue reading “Friends”

Winner winner, lobster dinner!

lobster lovin' Batman

Wow!

Thanks for all the wonderful responses to our LEGO Batman Movie Collectable Minifigures giveaway. We were truly blown away, not only by the sheer volume of entries, but how Stuck In Plastic has made impact on it’s readers over the past twelve months.

As you may know, I’ve been away for the past fortnight or so, down the coast camping with family and friends. I had little to no internet connection whilst away. So, to come back to over 50 responses left my head swimming. Each comment I read was the winner. Then I’d read the next, and that was the winner. It wasn’t easy picking just one from all the wonderful entries. Continue reading “Winner winner, lobster dinner!”
