If you have been following the LEGO Social Media feed over the last few days you may have felt a little baffled. Following a 10 second teaser, featuring a man carrying an oversized bow and arrow… cross to an anthropomorphised lion and deer sharing a coffee… a life size LEGO Fire truck and a crowd of people dressed as minifigures – with oversized minifigure accessories: camera, flower, flippers look to the sky to see a rubber raft fly by. We are now excited to be able to bring you the short film in its entirety. (after the break)Continue reading
Since the LEGO House first opened in 2017, there have been a number of exclusive sets available for purchase: the LEGO House Architecture set -21037 and the Tree of Creativity 4000026. Today, it was announced that there will be another set available later in the month: 40366 LEGO® House Dinosaurs.
Based on the massive sculptures that greet visitors entering the Masterpiece gallery, this set condenses the massive 2.92m tall dinosaurs into approximately 800 elements. Scaling down from 600,000.
These dinosaur sculptures were reveal almost 2 years ago, and recently, the eggs at their bases have started to hatch. Could this be what’s inside?Continue reading
This week, we celebrate the anniversary of the submission of the minifigure design to the Danish Patent office. It was in the following year, 1978, that we got our first glimpse of the LEGO® Minifigure. However, development of an appropriately sized, articulated figure began sometime beforehand…
The LEGO Group have recently released some new picture, showing historically significant developments in the the life of the Minifigures. Many of the items shown here are on display in the LEGO House, in Billund, but some may not be at this time. Continue reading
Earlier this week, LEGO Rebrick announced the winners of their ‘Decorate the LEGO House contest.‘ Featuring entries focussing on the themes of ‘LEGO Minifigure Interiors’ as well as ‘Nature,’ there are some fantastic models that will be displayed in the LEGO House in Billund for the next twelve months. Take a moment to follow the link and check out some of the winners. The quality of entries was such that the number of winning entries was ultimately doubled from twenty to forty.
I was excited to see one MOC that I recognised make the cut: Jason Cichon’s Honeycomb was on display at Brickvention 2017, and features some immaculately spaced hexagons, and a larger than life Honey Bee. The solid black frame really sets it off.
There are also some beautiful flowers including this brilliant White Flower from Continue reading
So I have been talking about the LEGO House a bit lately. It’s an exciting project, occupying the centre of Billund, due to open at the end of September. Like all new buildings in recent years of significance to LEGO, it has been immortalised in set form. Unlike many of the new factory sets, this one is available to purchase at almost all businesses around Billund. Except the LEGO Shop at the Airport, and LEGOLAND itself. You can pick it up at the bakery, the restaurant, the other restaurant, the supermarket and the LEGOLAND Hotel, just to name a few. No doubt, many of these businesses have been impacted by the construction, and the chase for this set may be an attraction to get tourists to venture into town. Now that the LEGO House is nearing completion, due to open in just over three months, the set is likely to have an extremely limited shelf life.
The Rambling Brick has been informed that it is highly likely that a new set based on the LEGO House will be unveiled once the facility is fully operational. No hints, clues or sneak previews have been presented. Anything that follows is pure speculation.
But what about the set we have now?
Packaged in the same firm black cardboard box as the Billund Airport and Architecture sets, this one is somewhat unique: It is a LEGO model of a building that had not yet been built, but designed to look as if it were built of LEGO bricks, looking like a LEGO Model. And it does.
