The book From an Idea to LEGO by Lowey Bundy Sichol is a part of a series of books providing a history of well-known companies, such as Google, Disney, and Nike, for children. But since this is a LEGO blog, we’ll just focus on this one.
Can you believe we’re 25% of the way through Advent already? Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? It’s day 6, and today’s models are a Christmas tree, a cake, Professor McGonagall, and a Resistance Troop Transporter.
Day 5 of the LEGO Advent Calendars gives us a stump and axe, a Friends minidoll, a pole with two banners, and Poe’s X-Wing Fighter.
On the 4th day of this year’s LEGO Advent Calendars we get a snow fort, a hamster on a sled, a much better tree, and a big gun.
Day 3 of this year’s LEGO Advent Calendars give us six models, because Friends and Harry Potter are doubles.
I can’t believe it’s already December! As I do every year, I’ve purchased all of the available LEGO Advent Calendar sets and for each day I will be posting photos of that day’s models and discussing them.
The LEGO Group announced this week they will be acquiring BrickLink, the online marketplace for LEGO parts. This has sent shockwaves throughout the entire LEGO fan community. (more…)
Last Sunday, as we do every year, BayLUG had a display at the East Bay Mini Maker Faire in Oakland, CA. Several of us brought Micropolis modules and we had a pretty extensive city set up, plus a variety of other models. See the photos below for more details – click on any photo to go to the Flickr photo album.
This past weekend I attended the annual BayLUG anniversary meeting in San Leandro, CA. It is the club’s 21st year, but we had a big celebration last year for the 20th and this year it was more like a regular meeting. We had a Halloween themed contest and lots of people brought models to show. My photos from the meeting can be seen here or on Flickr (click any photo to go to the album).
