What about this for Christmas?? Lego fans surely know what is to be in a room with plenty of nice sets or fantastic creations with a bunch of lost pieces in the floor (especially if you have kids nearby…). Sooner or later, I think that you’ve already tried the feeling of step one those bricks on the floor. Isn’t that great (not)?
To avoid that pain, there is now a great solution. Looks like that Lego has just created some new colored sleepers, that simply allow walking comfortably at home and step over a few bricks, without hurting your feet. Its soles are made for pretty soft material in order to be possible to soften the bloody pieces.
There’s no information about its availability or price but it would be certainly a great Christmas gift for a couple of people that I know. ...Continue Reading...
Continuing with next year’s releases, Amazon.de has just revealed an extensive list with most part of the sets that will be included in the first wave in 2016. The list is quite extensive and I’m sure that there will be plenty of great stuff to enjoy among them.
However, my first feelings are that this list is far from being completed not only because there are plenty of gaps between the set numbers but also because I can’t find a single set beyond the seventy bucks. Finally, two notes, one for the speed champions that will return with new manufacturers and for the new theme, the Nexo nights that seems, according to the names, to be something similar to Castle.

The German company NPIRE decided to build a wall 2.8 meters high and three meters long fully made with LEGO bricks, in order to serve as part of the office entrance and communal kitchen. According to the Huffington Post, to build this huge project, more than 55 thousand bricks were used including some reused pieces.
The choice of material was due to two essential factors: easy to dismantle if necessary and the LEGO colors bring another life that cannot be reproduced only with white walls. Another possibility is the fact that being a creative studio, the new wall can be seen as a marketing strategy to show an idea that is both creative and functional at the same time.
This new project has cost about 2500 Euros. Continue reading
As a sort of resume or best of, let me show a small gallery with some of the outstanding buildings that were presented in this year’s Lego Fan in Lisbon. Once again, my apologies for the pictures’ bad resolution, which were token with my phone, due to some critical problems with the digital camera.
In terms of regular sets, it was possible to have a look to Star Wars, from which unfortunately I didn’t take photos, there were a few of Movie sets just in front of modular buildings as well as plenty of small city sets spread all around the exposition. On the other hand I especially enjoyed seeing Monster Fighters with a mix between regular sets and some really nice Moc’s.
Talking about these, there were some great Portuguese buildings, Continue reading
