2013 Champions League Final recreated with Lego

The British newspaper “The Guardian” used Lego to recreate the Champions League final between Bayern and Dortmund. All details have been properly reproduced, after hours and hours of work.

AS you probably remember, last Saturday (May 25th), Bayern  and Borussia have contested the final of the competition and the team from Munich won the competition 2-1. The great animation made by the newspaper takes about 3 minutes and involves all the details of the game, including the three goals and the celebrations of scorers from both teams. Have a look at this great video:

Lego 60024 – City Advent Calendar

The New City Advent Calendar, this year, will present us with almost two hundred and fifty pieces which we lead us to build eight mini-figures (an Astronaut, a Mechanic, a Santa, a Snowman, a Fireman, a Police Officer, a Crook and a Child) and a lot of interesting small accessories for other big city sets.

As you can see thought the pictures, in terms of small buildings, there is small kart which will be excellent to add to the new Grand Prix Truck (60025), a nice fireplace, a barbecue and a picnic table with the respective bench, a usual Christmas tree, this time with a small red base and some microscopic vehicles such as a locomotive or a excavator which in my opinion are completely dispensable.

In terms of accessories there is also plenty to choose from: Continue reading

Oeiras BRInCKa Lego 2013 in Portugal – Continuing with Star Wars and Space

Star Wars, Space and some other nice MOC’s were also present in Oeiras, last weekend. There was nothing particularly new in terms of new sets but is always a pleasure to see models like the big death star (10188), the millennium falcon (10179) and the B-Wing Starfighter as well as some nice creations. Yoda as you can see in the galley was definitely pretty accurate!

Having a look at the space presentations, there was a mix among great scenarios, older regular sets and vintage models. It was nice to review old models with more than twenty years such as the Galactic Mediator (6894), a lunar base with tall buildings and lots of space vehicles, and the old Alpha from the TV series Space: 1999.

There was also a huge creation of a big fortress Continue reading

Oeiras BRInCKa Lego 2013 in Portugal – Here we go again with Pirates, Kingdom and some Battle Theater

The great moments continue with these three themes. In terms of Pirates, there is a feeling that is more of the same because the ships have globally most of the times the same structure despite is different details or features. There we also some traditional Portuguese models such as the Portuguese Caravel and the Admiral ship among others.

In terms of buildings there were at least two that really impressed me, one of them the great fortress, which is a sort of white castle with plenty of battlements and cannons and also a nice old regular set of 1992, the Imperial trading Post which you can take a deep look at the extended gallery.

Taking a glance to the kingdom or castle, Continue reading
