The 2010 Castle Advent Calendar Review β€” Day 6

December 6, 2010

Day 6

Another memorial of the War of the Bricks is the armor and helmet of General Stud Topsly, who defeated the Mega Bricksters and restored peace to Legonous. The feather plumb stands just as straight and tall as the day Sir Topsly took it off for the last time when he was 106 years old.

The 2010 Castle Advent Calendar Review — Day 1

December 1, 2010

Day 1

Harold, the royal blacksmith, is excited to start the day. He just got a shiny new hammer and he is ready to test it out as he does all the metal-smithing for the entire castle. He loves to create swords, armor and even horseshoes. With his thick leather apron and a hood to protect his head, Harold is ready to brave the forge.

The Ronin

May 8, 2010

Two things make Fradel Gonzales’ Ronin model great. One, it is a great representation of a Ronin Samurai from feudal Japan. Two, its made in Miniland scale (one of my favorite building scales). πŸ™‚

This is yet another example of why LEGO is one of the best creating mediums around. Where else would you use pistols as horns on the samurai helmet and car elements for the armor?

This will be a great addition to the collaborative “Big in Japan” display at BrickCon this year.

Active Camo Space Marine

February 3, 2010 has a special offer for this month.

Beginning Feb 2nd orders subtotaling $25 or more will receive an exclusive Trans-Clear Space Marine Armor Set (Armor, Helmet, Visor). Limit one per order. While supplies last. We will not combine shipping of multiple orders.

The trans clear armor is pretty cool but I’m actually more interested in Armothe’s Jackle alien. Its really thinking outside of the box. Using minifig hands and arms to create the body and gun is very interesting. πŸ˜€

This little piggy had a Farm

October 8, 2009

Although not quite as exciting as the new LEGO Atlantis theme, I still think this is note worthy in the fact that LEGO is adding yet another member to the Minifig animal population in 2010.

The image is not as crisp and clear as the Atlantis pics, but you can still plainly see what the set is all about — pigs.

When I saw this on Dano’s photostream I thought about adding it to yesterday’s post but then I decided that it deserved its own post. πŸ™‚

What I think is interesting is that LEGO is following the lead yet again from BrickForge. BrickForge has offered both LEGO compatible cows and pigs as well as sheep for quite a while in several different colors.

The official LEGO version will obviously be different from the BrickForge version but that’s okay, they can just be different breeds. πŸ˜‰

I own several of both the pigs and the sheep and I really like them. I have found BrickForge items to be high quality and worth the cost and I highly recommend them.

To be honest, I don’t usually pay as much attention to BrickForge and BrickArms as some of my male contemporaries for the simple reason that I’m not interested in weapons and armor. So although I do notice when new items are posted on Brothers Brick or Eurobricks I don’t always post them here.

One of the newest items that BrickForge has available for sale now that I think is quite fun — the mushroom.

Apparently the red ones were so popular that they are already out of stock! Hopefully they will get more soon.

BrickForge also has those fun scooters that have been popping up lately in several MOCs (my own creations). πŸ˜€

Everyone who has one seems to enjoy them, in fact I’ll probably order some myself pretty soon. I’m looking forward to the LEGO City Farm in 2010, but I’ll make do with my BrickForge ones till then. πŸ˜‰
