Three buildings, absolutely jam packed with details! I'll leave it to this press release from Lego to explain further! Celebrate ten years of Modular … Continue reading 10255 – Assembly Square
A beautiful building, and a worthy winner in my opinion. A bit different to the approved Ideas projects we've seen so far like The Big Bang Theory, Wall E and Dr. Who. It's going to be interesting to see how Lego adapt this for commercial release. The designer Robert Bontenbal (RobenAnne on Ideas), has done … Continue reading Lego Ideas Review Winner – The Old Fishing Store!
