Among the several news that appeared in the last days regarding this years’ San Diego Comic Con, I must say that the last couple of exclusive mini-figures that were unveiled definitely caught my attention.
The figures, as you might see in the pictures, are the Collector from the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Hobbit Bard the Bowman. Both are pretty detailed especially in their torsos and Brad brings also a nice brown bow. Although there are similar versions of these guys, they are unique and part of a group of four mini-figs that are planned to be revealed during the event.
Three down (the other is Rocket Raccoon), one to go! Which one will be Continue reading
The Rocket’s Warbird was unveiled by the Wall Street Journal as one of this year’s San Diego Comic Con exclusive sets. With only hundred and forty five pieces, it features a small space craft built mostly with small orange and grey pieces and an exclusive mini-figure, Rocket Raccoon.
Having a look at the picture, I would say that it didn’t impress me at all. The space ship looks pretty simple and without any appealing detail. The only thing that perhaps might be nice (discounting the photoshop effect) is the color combination between orange and grey which looks absolutely beautiful.

The new and exclusive Lego inside tour set, for this year, is a LegoLand Train, according to Brickset. I’m suspect because I love Lego trains, but this set looks really nice despite being completely different from the usual city railway vehicles.
The set brings looks quite big with more than five hundred pieces and, besides the lovely colors, brings a locomotive, two carriages, a small railway station and seven (!) mini-figures with assorted accessories, being at least two of them kids.
With pity, it’s 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
The Lisbon Lego Fun Event has begun last April 25th and definitely this year its masterpiece is the big big big Cologne Cathedral, an awesome building with almost one million (!!) pieces and around three meters tall.
I’ve been there but, unfortunately, had some serious issues with my photo camera so I had no alternative but tacking some shots with my cell phone. This Cologne Cathedral model is not properly new, however it’s the first time that I see it alive and all those thousands of small details are really impressive.
The Author, Jurgen Bramigk, to which I present my congratulations, Continue reading
