Nothing special or new from Day 2 of either calendar. The Friends snowmobile looks clunky, and we've seen the kid from the City calendar umpteen times before - the only highlight for me is the bright light orange snowboard, and that's only because bright light orange is my favourite colour.
Behind Door 1 on the Lego City Advent Calendar is this cute, little toy train - in my opinion the perfect example of a great advent calendar build. Day 1's gift in the Lego Friends Advent Calendar is a very Wintery looking Stephanie, with what I'm guessing is a Christmas list. Why oh why can't … Continue reading Lego City and Lego Friends Advent Calendar – Day 1
Congratulations go to BrickBros UK (aka Tom & Drew) whose design will be on shelves in the future. I'm surprised that the Jeep Wrangler wasn't chosen, and a little sad that the Sega Classic Arcade Machines didn't make it, but ultimately it's great to see any fan project brought to life. On another note, I'm … Continue reading Lego Ideas Review Winner – Tron Legacy
After a 4 month break since the last issue, the third instalment of Lego City Magazine is out now.

For the princely sum of €19.99 you get 233 parts, including: 5 Minifigures (Lloyd, Nya, Officer Toque, Shark Army Thug and Ham) A Police Tuk-tuk Market stall (with great … Continue reading Review – 70607 Ninjago City Chase
Too good an offer not to share! Right now Smyths Toys Ireland have The Old Fishing Store on offer of €119.99 - that's a great saving of €30! Time to treat yourself to an early Christmas present maybe!? sent
#5004934 - Seasonal Christmas Ornament, or as it was advertised on argos.ie, Lego Christmas Tree. And look doesn't it look lovely? But wait a minute... Looks can be deceiving, and of course I should have read the description: Build a LEGO star to place on top of the cardboard Christmas tree, then have fun … Continue reading I Bought It So You Don’t Have To
Right now, Tesco (Ireland) are running a promo where you'll get a free 30428 Green Ninja Mech Dragon Micro when you buy selected Ninjago sets (but the offer seems to apply to all Ninjago sets except for CMF's). The Polybag is available to buy for €4.99. I bought 70606 Spinjitzu Training for €9.99 and got … Continue reading FREE Lego Gift at Tesco!
Dutch builder Stephan Niks goes under the skin of a minifigure with his Lego Ideas build - Anatomini. A supersized minifigure (43.2cm!) showing what could be underneath the ABS. It was great to virtually catch up with Stephan for a chat about Anatomini, and I started by asking him where on earth he came up … Continue reading Anatomini!
Just imagine getting to do work experience at Legoland. 7 year old Stanley got to live that dream - and all by his own initiative! Stanley applied for a position for a Stand-In Model Maker that Legoland Windsor had advertised, and while they couldn't consider him for that position, they did offer him a day's … Continue reading 7 Year Old Lands Work Experience Gig at Legoland!
