Combining The LEGO Iron Man Hall Of Armoury Sets

My review of the upcoming LEGO® Marvel Iron Man Armoury proves to be popular so I decided to brave various spiders, cobwebs and possibly ghosts, to dig out the Hall of Armour set from last year, from deep with the brick-filled attic. As I mentioned in my review this new set is the perfect companion for the larger Hall of Armour set. Both are inspired by Tony Stark’s workshop as seen in the MCU Iron Man movies. Although...

What’s next for Nintendo and LEGO?

No matter what your gaming affiliation is, Nintendo will have influenced you in some way. As a long time gamer myself, Nintendo has played a big part in my gaming adventures. I fondly remember stepping out onto Hyrule Field for the first time in Ocarina of Time, marvelling at the Rumble Pak which came with Lylat Wars (Star Fox 64 for some), getting the first import copy of a little-known game called Pokémon in Leicester, spending...

All The Adult-focused LEGO Set So Far

“You know the rules, this isn’t a toy, no actually it’s a highly sophisticated inter-locking brick system” Yes, we all know that LEGO® is a toy, but there is a vast and ever-increasing adult community who adore those little plastic bricks, despite what the box says; after all “that’s a suggestion. They have to put that on there” The LEGO Group realised many years ago that adults loved LEGO...

A Look At LEGO…. Fairgrounds

With the announcement of a new LEGO® fairground set, I thought it was the perfect time to take a look at some of the other sets which are part of the same style of sets. Most of them are a sub-theme of the Creator Expert line, although the Haunted House is part of the new ‘AFOL’ line. There are also a couple of LEGO City sets with a fairground twist. Plus sets from the Creator 3-in-1 and Hidden Side themes. There are many...

Amazing MOCs: DOTS Art Gallery

I follow various LEGO® groups on Facebook and over the past few days, this fun creation by builder Rollon Smith appeared and thought it deserved a share. Rollon’s MOC is inspired by the new LEGO DOTS elements and makes them the focus of an art gallery exhibit, turning them into mini pieces of art. The various 1×1 DOTS elements allow for some impressive patterns and colour combinations. Making the perfect little pieces to...

Minifigures Adventures In The Antarctic

Long before much of the world went into lockdown, a group of intrepid Minifigures spent their own time in isolation at the Concordia Station in the Antarctic Plateau. Every year, during the 9 month winter season with temperatures dropping to minus 80 degrees and months without sunlight, a human crew remains isolated at the station without any possibility of evacuation. This winter they were joined by a few extra crewmates, with a gang...
