New 2014 Sets: LEGO Creator

The UK Version of Amazon has released a heap of new set details, and we are going to go through them all for you.

Here are the Creator sets coming soon

The new Bike Shop and Cafe set looks like the stand-out in this wave of sets. The set looks like a scaled down version of the popular Modular Building series. We suspect there will be a lot of people adding this to their City line-up.

New 2014 Sets: LEGO City

New 2014 Sets: LEGO Chima

The UK Version of Amazon has released a heap of new set details, and we are going to go through them all for you.

We aren’t big fans of Chima, but these sets look great. Some really interesting designs here.

New 2014 Sets: LEGO Friends

The UK Version of Amazon has released a heap of new set details, and we are going to go through them all for you.

First up we have LEGO Friends.

These sets seem to be a bit mixed. Firstly, it is great that the Friends girls get to go one some adventures. That was one criticism of the theme from when it was first released. Unfortunately it’s not all good news; there are still a lot of stereotypically ‘girly’ things like a shopping mall and the caravan set which talks about sunbathing and sharing secrets by lamplight.

Exo Suit

It’s not an official announcement, but here is a little more information on the upcoming LEGO Cuusoo Exo Suit set.

Tim Johnson from New Elementary, a blog which usually focuses on new LEGO parts, has been involved in a team helping LEGO finalise the design and packaging of this upcoming set. The post is full of really interesting insights into the way LEGO is working with the community on this project. We still don’t have the final design, but we do have an awesome logo…

Exo Suit Logo

We love that the logo features such a prominent reference to the classic space sets.

You can check out the full story over on New Elementary. It’s a fascinating look into LEGO’s process for this set. http://www.newelementary.com/2014/04/cuusoo-exo-suit-logo.html

 

Help Build World’s Largest Darth Vader Model

LEGO Star Wars

SYDNEY IT’S TIME TO CHOOSE YOUR SIDE THIS MAY THE 4TH

LEGO® Master Builder Calls On Sydney-siders To Help Build World’s Largest Darth Vader™ Model from LEGO Bricks

This May the 4th weekend, Jedi and LEGO® fans alike are invited to come together and celebrate the world of LEGO® Star Wars™ with a building event like no other.

US LEGO Master Builder, Dan Steininger, will land in Sydney to join Australia’s own LEGO Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught, in an attempt to build the world’s largest model of Darth Vader™ from LEGO bricks.

Taking place at Westfield Penrith from Saturday May 3rd to Sunday May 4th, Dan and Ryan will be calling on members of the public to help them build the huge model of Darth Vader. Set to scale at close to 4m
in height and using more than a quarter of a million LEGO bricks, the model will be one of the biggest ever seen in Australia.

But the fun doesn’t stop there, as fans will be invited to choose their side, like Anakin, as Dan and Ryan also build a giant model of the Jedi Grand Master himself, Yoda, made from LEGO bricks, standing over
2m in height.

In addition, there will be exciting new sets from the extensive LEGO Star Wars range on display. Over the two days, there will also be Star Wars trivia and LEGO speed building challenges offering plenty of
prizes for everyone.

So come dressed as your favourite Star Wars character for the chance to win a LEGO Star Wars goodie bag, or just bring the power of the Force with you to join in on all the fun… and May the 4th be with you!
