MOC: Palace of Westminster

MOC: Palace of Westminster

We don't normally cover MOCs (my own creations) here at Brickset; we leave that to the experts over at The Brothers Brick, but we're making an exception for this absolutely stunning model of London's Palace of Westminster, otherwise known as the Houses of Parliament, built by Brickset member and forum regular paperballpark, AKA Jamie Douglas.

The model will be making its first public appearance at Bricktastic in Manchester, July 1-2 2017, organised by, and for the benefit of, our favourite charity Fairy Bricks.

Read our exclusive interview with Jamie and view more images after the break.

Throwback Thursday: Technic 1978-79

Throwback Thursday: Technic 1978-79

Following on from the last Throwback Thursday article that I posted at the end of last year, here is an article about the 1978 and 1979 LEGO Technical Sets, as they were then still known.

In among these sets were the LEGO Technical Sets my father purchased when his ship, the NZ Government research vessel GRV Tangaroa, sailed to Norfolk Island, an Australian external territory where LEGO was reported as being the cheapest in the world.

Read on as I showcase my original, and much loved, Technical sets as well as the other sets released in 1978 and 1979.

'LEGO' in domain names

Brickset, The Brick Fan, Brick Fanatics, BrickShelf, BrickLink... Have you ever wondered why LEGO fan sites never use that four-letter-word in their domain name and instead opt for something generic?

Review: The Highwayman!

Review: The Highwayman!

At last, we've been given the go-ahead to reveal the 16th figure of series 17 collectable minifigures: The Highwayman!

I guess LEGO wanted to have a bit of fun with this figure to inject some mystery and excitement into its marketing campaign by not revealing it with the others.

It may well have been successful in keeping the identity a secret from Joe Public but I'm sure most of you will have found pictures on other fan sites by now given they've been turning up in shops since the beginning of the month.

Anyway, if you've not seen it yet and you're expecting something spectacular I think you'll be disappointed. It's a nice figure but not really worthy of such special treatment.

Early ideas books

Early ideas books

There's a dearth of news at the moment so let's have a #ThrowbackTuesday rather than wait until Thursday...

Over the last few weeks Matt Hocker has been busy scanning old printed material for inclusion in our library and today I found the time to add some of it, starting with five old Ideas Books, which are always fascinating to browse.

The highlight is Ideas Book No. 1 from 1960 which is particularly interesting because as well as showing children what can be built using the limited selection of bricks available at the time, it also extols the virtues of 'LEGO as a hobby' for adults.

Review: 30449 The Milano

Review: 30449 The Milano

The Milano is the main spacecraft used by the Guardians of the Galaxy for interstellar flights and has been officially rendered in LEGO three times, including a mini polybag version, 30449 The Milano.

It's currently available at Toys R Us in the UK for £4.99 or is free with LEGO Super Heroes purchases over £15, which is a low threshold for such a cool freebie.

We'll be reviewing this year's main rendition of the craft, in 76081 The Milano vs. The Abilisk next week, but in the meantime I've taken a few pictures of the the mini one for your perusal.

75191 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive images

75191 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive images

Toys R Us Hong Kong has published pictures of 75191 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive.

The set contains four minifigs: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jango Fett and young Boba Fett with mini legs, plus an R4-P17 Astromech droid figure.

It's exactly ten years since LEGO last produced a set featuring a hyperdrive ring, 7661 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive Booster Ring, however the design of the ship and the ring on this version are quite different.

The price in Hong Kong is $1000 which equates to about £100 and US$130.

The full set description and box image are after the break.

[UK/EU] Star Wars 40% discounts

So, the plan was that in the run-up to the May the Fourth promotion LEGO was going to reveal the sets that'll be 40% off during the period, one set at a time, at shop.LEGO.com. We were told the list in advance but asked to play along with LEGO's marketing plans.

However, due to consistent naming of images on LEGO's server other sites soon found out how to determine the whole list.

So far three sets have been officially revealed:

  • On April 29 75149 Resistance X-wing Fighter will be 40% off
  • On April 30 75523 Scarif Stormtrooper will be 40% off
  • On May 6 75171 Battle on Scarif will be 40% off

(Of course, we all realize that's a rhetorical question, but my coworkers generally don't.) "Of course!"

"You know, when we first met (several years ago) I hadn't touched LEGO in years. Now I have kids, and my entire house is taken over with LEGO. We just got the Frozen palace. Do you know that one?"

"Of course. I'm just doing a review on that set now……"

Reminder: PFx Brick on Kickstarter

Reminder: PFx Brick on Kickstarter

Last month we told you about an exciting programmable brick, PFx Brick, on Kickstarter that's been designed by well respected members of the AFOL community Jason Allemann (of Ideas Maze fame) and Michael Gale.

PFx Brick is a programmable electronic brick controller designed to offer three major functions for LEGO models: motor control, lighting effects and sound effects.

Funding for the project ends in six days and it's achieved 38% of the required total of CA$140K so far, so if you're interested in seeing it to production and getting hold of one then now would be a good time to pledge your support.

Since we mentioned it last time, Bluetooth support has been added which now makes it much more versatile.

Head on over to Kickstarter to do so, and to find out more about the brick's capabilities.

Is NEXO Knights coming to an early end?

Is NEXO Knights coming to an early end?

This month's Blocks magazine is reporting that "rumour has it that [NEXO Knights] is being cancelled and the summer sets may not even be released"

Update: We now have it on very good authority that there is no truth to this rumour. My apologies for unnecessarily alarming you.

I don't know where the rumour emerged, and of course the magazine doesn't say, but I'm inclined to think that there's more than a grain of truth in it. I get the feeling that as a 'Big Bang' theme with a huge investment behind it, both in terms of advertising, supporting media and dozens of new parts, that it is not performing as well as LEGO had hoped. Perhaps 'space knights' haven't captured kids' imaginations as much as it thought they would and as a result the 3-year product pipeline that is usual for Big-Bang themes is being curtailed.

While there's no doubt that the sets are well designed, offer exciting play features and introduce many great new parts I get the impression that they haven't really excited AFOLs at all, so I don't think many of us will be sorry to hear of the theme's demise.

As most Brickset members will know, 2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the creation of the Technic range of products.

A few months ago images were released showing a modern version of the iconic 8860 Car Chassis which can be assembled using parts from three of this year's Technic sets. The instructions for Technic 40 year anniversary model became available a few weeks ago.

Review: 21035 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

Review: 21035 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, arguably America's greatest architect, and is one of his finest works. It is therefore a fitting subject for a LEGO Architecture model.

It's not the first time the building has been modelled: 21004 Solomon Guggenheim Museum, designed by Adam Reed Tucker and released 2009 was one of the first Architecture sets. For this review I cut the seals on my MISB copy so you can see the two side-by-side.

Detention Block Rescue instructions

Detention Block Rescue instructions

If you didn't get to this year's Star Wars Celebration in Orlando or, worse, were there but didn't 'win' the exclusive Detention Block Rescue set you might be interested in trying to build the set from your own parts.

If so, a Brickfinder reader has photographed the instruction manual and the site has compiled the photos into a downnloadble PDF.

Looking at the parts list (on Brickfinder and not in the PDF for some reason) there doesn't seem to be anything too exotic among the elements so there's a good chance you'll have most of them already, or can obtain them from BrickLink fairly cheaply.

Happy birthday, database!

Happy birthday, database!

Today is something of a milestone: it's the database's 20th birthday! On this day back in 1997 I announced my first LEGO set guide in the usenet newsgroup rec.toys.lego.

The guide contained sets that appeared in UK catalogues in the 1970s, of which there was scant information available on the Internet at the time.

To mark the occasion I thought it would interesting to resurrect an old version of it, briefly discuss the early history of LEGO databases, and to find out what other LEGO fan sites looked like in 1997.

Review: 75144 Snowspeeder

Review: 75144 Snowspeeder

The Ultimate Collector's Series has come to encompass various kinds of products in recent years, ranging from enormous display models to what can only be described as prodigious play sets. However, 75144 Snowspeeder marks a welcome return to the original focus of the UCS range as a popular vehicle is rendered at a large scale and with an exceptional level of detail.

The T-47 Airspeeder is one of the most popular and recognisable vehicles from the Original Trilogy and it is therefore not surprising to see it rendered for a second time in the Ultimate Collector's Series. 10129 Rebel Snowspeeder was released in 2003 and remains comparably impressive today so I have high expectations that 75144 Snowspeeder will be even better!
