LEGO CREATOR Deli.

The thing that I love about the LEGO CREATOR series is the level of detail. The fact that there are often instructions for 3 different models from one set is good too. This set was fun to make and didn't take long at all. In fact 1 hour and 10 minutes. This is the back of the box that demonstrates the different possibility of the build. One nice idea is that the instructions are in 3 different books. Here are all the sets blocks in 5 different bags. This version of the set ha

ONE TRUE LOVE....

There is a lot of love in the world today and even Batman finds some time out to have some 1 to 1 time with his love. No, I'm not talking about Babs, Gordon or Selina Kyle. I mean come on who doesn't like a nice warm Steak Bake? Those who know my alter ego know I have a connection the to food-on-the-go chain GREGGS. I thought I wanted to go in a none Star Wars direction for my next MOC. Why not a high street or a shop? I started first with the fascia sign. It was quite a stru

Lights, Motors, Action

I have this weekend contributed the the Brixo crowd funding project. They have met the target and currently have a discount on funding packages. Brixo is a very clever idea of using a 9v battery block and chrome finished blocks that act as conductors. Once a circuit is made you can add lights, motors and switches into the circuit. I'm not 100% sure how this will work but it also has Bluetooth connectivity with ITTT Brixo is compatible with Lego and other like blocks and will

Cut the chatter, Red 2. Accelerate to attack speed. (MOC Y-Wing Bomber)

X-Wing, A-Wing ah all wings. I have got some great ideas floating around in that big empty space I call a brain. You may have noticed lately that I bought a Lego Star Wars A-Wing. Of course that's just the start, you need X-Wing, Y-Wing maybe even a B-Wing. I have been eyeing up the new Y-Wing set. I decided to have a go at making my own. I had recently bought the WilkoBlox Airport Set that gave me loads of handy parts so I started to build the cockpit section. I was really p

Imperial Outpost THX-1138

After having fun with the Imperial Cargo Hub I started to look at other scene to build. Most of these ideas have been Star Wars related but I have some no Star Wars builds in mind. Funny how even work can be an inspiration. I think most of us have seen the Eddie Izzard Death Star Canteen sketch. It is made even better with Lego stop-motion. If you have not seen it I strongly recommend. So Mr Izzard has a good point there must have been all manor of mundane and normal tasks be

LEGO Pricing inflation or value?

So stumbled across this little articale this morning on nerdist.com by Mathew Hart. It's an interesting read about the details the 2 users of brickset.com. The idea behind this is has Lego increased in price? The findings seem to suggest not. General sets and the none franchise sets seem to have stayed constant over the last decade. This is at the time of writing this £0.07 per Lego piece. My current feeling is that as much as I would love all Lego brand blocks, it is unlikel

Here We Go

I have BAS (Block Acquisition Syndrome). It is a serious issue and one that my loving Wife says is "taking over every surface in our home". In a response to this I said to myself "Right Mike, you like plastic blocks and you like to look at models you have made...PHOTOS... take photos, build something new and move on". It is all well and good but what does one do with said photos? Facebook? Instagram? Pinterest? All are valid options, but the only problem there is spamming y
