Old MacDonald had a cow

Old MacDonald had a cow

Josh Morris just created this awesome vignette for the Micro Sci-Fi Contest they are having over at Eurbricks.com.

Unfortunately (or fortunately ;) ) Josh can’t win because he’s on the Eurobricks staff, so that gives the rest of us a chance. :D

There’s even an awesome trophy made by Simon Liu for the winner:

Vignettes are small and deceptively simple. So get out there and build people!

LEGO Lone Ranger

December 8, 2012

Update: Image removed by request

The rumors can be put to rest, its now official. The LEGO Lone Ranger sets will be tied to the new Disney Long Ranger movie that is coming out July 2013.

Its sad, but at the Creation Nation Event we had here in San Diego a few months ago, we were talking about the then rumored Lone Ranger sets and a 10 year old (or so) kid asked what the Lone Ranger was — I feel old when I hear things like that. :?

On one hand, I’m interested in seeing this movie, even if Johnny Depp (who I do like, don’t get me wrong) as Tonto kind of rubs me the wrong way. But on the other I doubt this movie will live up to the classic series I remember seeing reruns of when I was a kid — no, I’m not old enough to remember when they were originally on TV, so at least I’m not that old. ;)

Either way, we (the LEGO fans) finally get the Western theme we’ve been asking for for years. I have all the original Western sets that came out in 96′ and 97′ so regardless of how the movie does, I look forward to seeing what’s in these new sets. The picture shows us a few new elements — Tonto’s ax, a long horn skull, a new revolver, and what looks like a black crow on Tonto’s head (although that may be part of the hair piece). On BrickSet you can see the set names, although no set images have shown up yet.

These sets, along with all the other fun new stuff (Galaxy Squad, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Creator, etc) that is starting to pop in stores now or just around the corner for 2013 are getting me excited for the upcoming year.

Galaxy Squad Sets appearing on shelves

November 20, 2012

Galaxy Squad may be part of the 2013 LEGO line, but its already appearing on some Toys R Us shelves just in time for the Christmas Holidays. These were found in Canada, but I have a feeling that they will be popping up in the US soon.

Galaxy Squad reminds me a lot of Insectoids that came out in ’98-99 except with dark red. :)

I have a feeling several 2013 sets will be finding their way to the shelves this December, usually about 20 or so sets come out. So keep your eyes peeled. ;)
