New collectible minifigs coming out in 2010!


Eurobricks user, Sir Dano, found a photo of the collectible minifigs, which probably will be released in 2010:

If it's true, we will get a bunch of new parts and also some reactivated old ones. If someone doesn't know, I'll say who is who:

1. Cavemen,
2. Cheerleader,
3. Clown,
4. Adventurer,
5. Dummy,
6. Diver,
7. Indian,
8. Magician (ellegant!),
9. Ninja,
10. Nurse,
11. Forestman (!!!),
12. Robot,
13. Some rock musician, or something like that :) ,
14. Astronaut,
15. Wrestler,
16. Zombie.

My favourites are Forestmen, nurse and magician. If they really will be released, we will have a minifig revolution! What do you think?

Department Store Black &White


Black & White is probably a colour of this building, but I prefer it as name. Well, I browsed Eurobricks and I noticed a quite nice tenement builded by Jameson42:

I like here those large, glass, modern windows, colours, plants and a roof builded out of large tiles 8x16 (I like these bricks very much :D ). All details are nice and well chosen. The builder used there a technique, which uses modified plates 1x2 and 1x8 with door panes and large glasses 1x4x6 to make big exhibition glasses without frames. I like this technique very much. :) There is also a light grey pavement instead of dark grey, but I don't commend this, because I'm a conservative in this question. :)

Creations for Charity


The picture is the link. Nannan Zhang founded a store on the Bricklink, in which he sells famous builders' MOCs. All funds will go towards buying Lego sets for unprivileged children. Foundation Toys for Tots participes in this action.

Few intresting (and most elegant) works:

Surreakistic Nannan Zhang's vignette "Great Anachronism" (50 USD):

Beach booth (vignette size) by Michael Jasper (12,50 USD):

Holiday figures - nutcracker (not working :D ) and soldier by Don Wilson (10 USD):

Surrealistic work (diorama) by Nannan Zhang "Atavism" (50 USD):

"Charity Hour on Highway 44), mech - Brian Kscenovitz, the rest of the diorama - Keith Goldman (170 USD):

Yuck, mechs. However I quite like this work. :)

The best at the end - Dave Kaleta's tie (34 USD):

I could buy it, but I regret my money because I don't often wear ties. :D

If you want to participate in action and give your MOCs for auction, you only need to be more than 13 years old, send an e-mail to Nannan Zhang (mr.bley@gmail.com), in which are included a good photo of the work, link to gallery, minimal price of the MOC, it's name, short description and builder's full name. You can find more informations here.

I encourage you to auction.

EDIT: The first wave sold for 1008,99 USD!


MOC - The Settlers

A post from Krzysztof:

Welcome after the fairly long break. Recently interested me the Lugpol user - Qworg's construction. It's a building from the popular game - The Settlers. Personally I like the most colours of the MOC, and also varied ground. Look at the interesting looking, curved planks.

Here are some photos:

P.S. Sorry, that I didn't posted for a long time, but somehow I didn't have time.

Well, that's like Svelte imagine it: :)

A building has got also a furnished roof and ground floor!

There is also a playable function - removing lay-figure's "background":

Sweet dreams

A new post from Legofan:


Crises, Lugpol user suprised me recently with a best vignette I ever seen. Look at the beautiful curtains - this is my favourite part of vignette, I never have thought they can be done from brick modified 1x2x1 1/3 with curved top. Crises finely showed minifigure's fear by a head and pose. The next excellent details are the quilt and monster's tentacles.

So I wish you pleasant dreams! Good night!
