LEGO We Just Click Book Review

Chronicle Books have been releasing a number of products featuring LEGO® bricks and Minifigures throughout 2020 and their first offering for the new year is released tomorrow.

The book would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for that LEGO loving loved...

Last year the LEGO® Creator Expert branding was retired in favour of a uniform design of black boxes and sub-brand collections.

When we aren’t being ‘treated’ to various Police and Fire sets, the LEGO® City range offers up something different with sub-themes. In the past, these have seen sets based on construction, mining, ocean exploration and trying to get into space. For 2021 things are a little different, the sub-theme is focused on a particular area instead is focused around the new raid plate system and is collectively known as...
