A Look At LEGO…. Book Famous Minifigures

Back in 2013 publisher DK Books put out a call for a selection of Minifigures they needed to help complete their new book, LEGO Minifigures Year by Year: A Visual History. LEGO fans around the UK and beyond, raided their LEGO collections to help find those few Minifigures DK needed for inclusion in the book. Thankfully my inability to throw or give anything away meant I still had all my LEGO sets from when I was younger and having...

A Look At LEGO…. Joker Sets

With the surprise announcement of The Joker Manor set yesterday we thought it was the perfect time to take a look back at some of the Clown Prince of Crime’s other chuckle-some sets. Wherever Bat’s goes the Joker isn’t far behind and their rivalry took a multi-dimensional twist in The LEGO Batman Movie earlier this year. When The Joker isn’t giving the local playboy millionaire’s mansion a psychedelic...

Click & Snap – NINJAGO By Night

We are absolutely blown away with set 70620: NINJAGO City and if you’ve been following us on social media, you’ll have see our snaps of the set in BricksFanz HQ’s sunny back garden. But as we sat watching the solar lights flicker to life when darkness fell, we had the urge to try snapping another picture and the results is – NINJAGO By Night. We are quite chuffed with the results so thought it deserved a little...

A Look At LEGO…. Pods

When The LEGO Batman Movie was released early this year, it also introduced us to the LEGO Pod, an all-new LEGO product which offers a compact micro playset contained in a clamshell pod. They are kind of reminiscent of the old Polly Pocket/Mighty Max toys from the early 90s. Currently there are four known sets available in the LEGO Pods line-up, each of which are tied to one of four current LEGO themes. The pods open up to reveal on...
