Click & Snap: Snowflake Village 2019

For the last few years here at BricksFanz HQ, I’ve created a festive themed display, lovingly dubbed Snowflake Village, and of course it’s made from LEGO®. It features many of the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village sets, released over the last few years, including this years Winter Village Gingerbread House. As the years have gone on, the display has become bigger and this year has even expanded underneath the tree. Plus...

Click & Snap: The Series 19 Crew

Ahead of my full review of the new series of LEGO® Minifigures, I’ve been taking some snaps of the new characters and sharing them on social media.

One of the great things about modern day Minifigures is they are very expressive,...

Inspired by this moment I decided to recreate Will the Wise using the new...

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...

Click & Snap: Snowflake Village 2018

After a break last year, Christmas has exploded here at BricksFanz HQ with Snowflake Village back on display for the festive period.
