LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean sets Unveiled

February 1, 2011

Ever since Comic Con last year there’s been buzz about the Pirates of the Caribbean Sets.



So many new elements! Between the new bottles, hairstyles, and the new mermaid tails I just have to get these drool worthy sets!!!! This is only 4 of the 8 sets check out the gallery on MTV.com.

And if that’s not enough there’s a LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Video Game coming out!!! Go to FBTB.net to see it as I can’t figure out how to post it here.

LEGO John Lasseter

February 15, 2010

John Lasseter of Pixar was presented with a LEGO version of himself along with Miniland scale versions of Buzz Lightyear and Woody. The life-size bust was created by my friend Master Model Designer Erik Varszegi of the Enfield, Connecticut Model Shop.

In related new Angus MacLane of Pixar and Cubedude fame created a very special Cubedude Buzz Lightyear as a 2010 LEGO Toy Fair Premium. Only 150 were made and signed by Angus himself.

Hopefully by next year I will actually be at Toy Fair myself so that I can give you a first hand account.

LEGO Harry Potter 2010 Sets

February 14, 2010

Happy Valentine’s Day!

On the cusp of the last post pictures are already starting to show up of the new LEGO Harry Potter 2010 line from the New York Toy Fair.

One of the actually new sets is the Weasley’s Burrow

There is of course the obligatory Hogwarts Castle

The funniest thing is the “invisible” cloak. It just makes me smile. 🙂

The “essential” Hogwarts Express

And naturally Hagrid’s Hut

In my opinion this one isn’t as good as the original 2001 set even with its funky plastic roof.

For some reason Freeing Dobby

Another kind of new set is the Quidditch Match

Considering that there hasn’t been any Harry Potter sets for years, the younger generation that didn’t get a chance to purchase the older sets will most likely go crazy for these. Especially with the LEGO Harry Potter Video Game coming out as well. 😉
