Nice Part Use In LEGO NINJAGO City Gardens

The world of LEGO® is filled with various phases and abbreviations. AFOL is, of course, Adult Fan of LEGO, SNOT is short for studs not on top and BURP is used to describe big ugly rock pieces. The list goes on and it seems LEGO fans are too busy building to use full words or sentences. Which is why NPU is used to highlight areas of builds which make ingenious use of elements or nice use of parts. This can be used for LEGO sets of any...

With the LEGO® Creator Expert branding replaced with 18+ sub-collections, the standard Creator theme has also seen a small change.
