A Look At LEGO… Guardians Of The Galaxy

Beyond the wonderful world of LEGO® building, I’m partial to a cheeky bit of gaming. Since Saturday I’ve been enjoying the adventures of the Guardians of the Galaxy, in their first video game from Square Enix. After their efforts with The Avengers game, I wasn’t too sure if this would be any good but from what I saw in previews it looked fun at the very least. Thankfully, the game is great. So as I’m all...

Life In Bricks – My LEGO Story

I’m mentioned my various standout LEGO® moments over the years but thought it would be fun to tell my LEGO story. Like many, I had multiple LEGO sets as a kid. They included sets 6080: King’s Castle, 6482: Light & Sound Rescue Helicopter and many more. I’ve often been reminded by my Mum that she had to spend Christmas Eve, putting the sets together so they would be ready to play with on Christmas morning. A...

LEGO Set V Source: Super Mario 64

Pac-man, Tetris, Donkey Kong, GoldenEye 007, Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Fortnite, are just a handful of games that have helped to change the face of gaming over the years. But in 1996 there was one game that made a massive impact on the games industry. Super Mario 64 defined the 3-D platform experience, which is why it’s no surprise it acted as inspiration for the insides of the new LEGO Super Mario 64...

Set V Source: LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi

It’s a well-known fact that some LEGO® sets based on various movies, sometimes take a few liberties with the source material. This can be for various reasons, such as working from concept art, early cuts of films or to deflect spoilers. After venturing to the cinema for the first time in over two years to see Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, I thought it would be nice to compare the two Shang-Chi LEGO sets with the...

Click & Snap: LEGO Animals Of Wildlife Rescue

When I was younger, I used to place those cheap animals they sell in zoo gift shops, in the garden and took pictures of them. Once the film was taken to the chemist and had been developed, I could marvel at my work. One image of a toy elephant even fooled a couple of people who thought it was a real elephant. Which inspired me to take the new LEGO® City Wildlife Rescue animals out into the wilds of my garden for a photo shoot. After...

A Look At LEGO… At The Olympics

As Japan finally welcomes the 2020 Olympics, it’s the obvious occasion to take A Look At LEGO®… Olympics. Despite the modern-day games running for many years, the LEGO Group only became officially connected to the Olympics in 2012, with a special LEGO Minifigure series. As the games moved to Rio in 2016, another official Olympic LEGO product was released. So the LEGO Group has a brief but significant connection to the Olympics....
