10214 Tower Bridge

August 6, 2010

In the same vein of the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal the 10214 Tower Bridge promises to be a great addition to the large scale building series.

At first glance this model doesn’t seem quite as impressive as the Taj Mahal, in fact it almost looks like a fan created MOC (my own creation), that is until you take a closer look at the Hi-Res picture. 🙂

This model is teaming with lots of small details and new elements, the most notable in my mind as well as many others is the Tan cheese slopes! Up until this set cheese slopes in tan (which come in virtually every other color) have been but only a much requested dream element of LEGO fans. But of course its not just the cheese slopes. There are multiples of tiles, technic wheels, windows, and if I am not mistaken (which I might be 😉 ) baseplates in medium blue.

Although there is no official word, with the part count at over four thousand pieces this will not be a cheap set. It will most likely be in the $300 range like the two previous Building sets. The Tower Bridge is slated to be available this October, at least from what I can find on BrickSet. There is also a forum on Eurobricks discussing the set.

LEGO Build Together : House TV Commercial

December 14, 2009

A while back a friend of mine mentioned on Facebook that he was heading to London to do a “super secret” project. Oh, did I mention that he is a LEGO Master Builder from the Connecticut Model Shop?

Well once this commercial aired he was able to finally post pictures and I instantly recognized this retro classic commercial I’d seen the night before. This shows all the reasons I got into LEGO in the first place — building for the pure joy of it, the spontaneous crazy additions that seem perfectly fine when your 6, and making making something totally awesome. 😉

I loved the commercial from the moment I saw it and the fact that I know the actual builder makes it even better. 😀
