LEGO Gaming From A Galaxy Far, Far Away

A long time ago, in galaxy far, far away, two iconic brands would be bought together to create an entirely new genre of video game. With the LEGO® Star Wars sets helping to reverse the fortunes of The LEGO Group, a little known band of rebel games devs from Traveller’s Tales had an idea to bring these sets to life in a video game. The LEGO Group were still fairly new to the gaming scene but they were on board and Lucasfilm fresh...

LEGO Disney Minifigures Perfect Partnerships

Before I take a more detailed look at the upcoming series of LEGO® Minifigures, I thought it would be fun to take a look at the partnerships formed with the characters in the new series as well as the previous series. In the first series of LEGO Disney Minifigures, most characters could be linked with a fellow on-screen buddy, but in the new series there are no ‘billy no mates’. There are also character in the new series...

A Look At LEGO…. Microscale

I think we can all agree that LEGO® Minifigures are pretty awesome, for the past 40 odd years they have been inhabiting LEGO sets and beyond, adding an extra level of fun to LEGO play. But sometimes their small stature can be a too little big to create the prefect LEGO recreation of various vehicles, building or locations. Over the years Microscale builds have become more commonplace in LEGO sets, from entire themes like LEGO...

LEGO DUPLO At 50 – Evolution Of A Logo

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the LEGO® DUPLO® brick. Over those post 50 years the DUPLO brand has changed a lot, but there has been a certain red rabbit who has remained constant. Well almost, in the early 2000’s LEGO DUPLO became LEGO Explore, but do to customer feedback, the original name and brand mascot returned and has remained the face of DUPLO ever since. It all started with a Danish company, called Plan Design,...

Top 10 LEGO Rockets

It’s time to blast-off for another LEGO® Top Ten. Now I started this Top Ten back in November as it was long rumoured that the new John Lewis advert would be inspired by Elton John 70s hit Rocketman, turns out it wasn’t and as it would be a stretch to compile the Top Ten LEGO Pianos.
