Click & Snap: That Is One Big Pile Of Bricks

One of my favourite films is Jurassic Park, I fondly remember going to see in the cinema multiple times way back in 1993. I would of been just 10 years old and I remember being a mixture of scared but amazed at seeing dinosaurs being brought to life. So I was delighted when it was revealed we would be getting a LEGO® Jurassic World theme. Although based on the new trilogy, we have been treated to a set based on the Raptor kitchen...

Click & Snap: LEGO NINJAGO In The Wild

Whilst taking a look through the official LEGO® NINJAGO Facebook page, I stumbled upon these cool little LEGO beauty shoots for sets based on The LEGO NINJAGO Movie. The images aren’t new and have probably been up there since the movie came out in cinemas last year, but they are a great way to show off the sets. Shame they were not used more widely. As you can see they offer shots of the various LEGO NINJAGO Movie sets in...
