Lego Modular Series: Pet Shop 10218

The Pet Shop is the third building in the modular series that I’ve built, following the Fire Station and the Grand Emporium.  We put off getting this particular set until later on as it was released only last year.  By comparison, the Fire Station and Grand Emporium are more likely to go out of print. As you can probably tell ...

Lego Volkswagen T1 Camper Van 10220

I generally tend to steer clear of model-sized Lego sets.  No particular reason.  I guess I just like everything to scale to the mini-figs and most of the model sets are planes and sports cars which don’t particularly interest me.  Having said that, I always liked the look of the Lego VW Combi because a) it looks goddamn amazing and ...

Lego Modular Series: Grand Emporium 10211

Released two years ago and clocking in at 2,182 pieces, the Grand Emporium is my first pick up in their modular building line. It’s an excellent build that took 3 of us about two hours to complete, doing a floor each.  It comes with a detailed interior, a revolving door, interconnected floors with escalators and seven minifigs (five people, two ...

Lego Modular Series: Fire Brigade 10197

On the Easter Weekend we built the Lego Fire Brigade for Sarah’s birthday. I’ve had my eye on Lego’s modular series of buildings for some time.  They’ve done a range including a green grocer, a pet store, a cafe, a hotel and a town hall.  The Fire Brigade is about a year old and is 2,231 pieces. Happily, I can ...

Lego Architecture – Seattle Space Needle

A little prezzie from Jen for Easter.  This was a super quick build.  I think there’s only about 60-70 pieces and it took about ten minutes.  Weirdly enough, there’s a step in the instructions that asks you to cut some pieces with a pair of scissors.  Can’t say I’ve come across that before. It came out looking pretty sweet though.

Lego Mini-Figs

I am addicted to buying these damned Lego Minifigs! What started as a random impulse purchase one day has turned into a full blown collectathon.  Most of them live on the Imperial Ship that sits on top of the bookshelf.  Just look at these awesome little dudes. I’m particularly excited for the upcoming Series 7 which has a couple of ...
