As I described in my Legoland Pirate Island post, I believe that Legoland Germany is well worth a visit.
Apart from the park itself, one of the reasons to go there is the chance to buy some exclusive LEGOLAND sets.
The most recent of those is 40306 LEGOLAND Castle bringing a bit of classic castle theme back to live.

TIE Fighters are among the most recognizable aircrafts in the Star Wars universe. So its no wonder that they have been portrayed a number of times in different scales and color schemes throughout the years.
30381 Imperial TIE Fighter is the newest microscale rendition accompanying the new Solo movie.

This years 60th anniversary has brought us the Building Bigger Thinking sets. They are colorful, fun and supposed to inspire creativity.
10401 Rainbow Fun is the smallest set and therefore a good starting point to give the Building Bigger Thinking line a try.

Like every year we see several Star Wars themed events for “May the 4th”. One of those promotions is a ToysRUs event with different challenges for a chance to win some Star Wars toys.
ToysRUs events usually feature a building event where you can build (and later take home with you) a small Lego modell. For this years event a Millennium Falcon was announced and I was curious to see if it would be the one featured in the new Solo movie.

Finding a present for any enthusiast is hard. Its more than likely that you end up buying something they already have (at least you got their taste right) or something they don’t want.
AFOLs like me are no different in that regard and so my friends and family usually give me something unrelated.
However this year my wife gave me a family weekend at the brand new Legoland Pirate Island for my birthday. I would say that two days of Legoland Germany and a night in their pirates themed hotel is right on target!

Last year Lego introduced the Creator Modular line. It seems like the concept was well received as all Creator houses are modular in the current Lego catalogue (2018 January – June).
While I’m not entirely convinced about the building technique, most of the houses look great.
When my daughter had to stay home sick a couple of weeks back, my wife decided to build 31081 Modular Skate House to keep them entertained.

The easter seasonal sets have been a mixed bag the last couple of years.
Certainly one of the nicer builds was last years vignette 40237 Easter Egg Hunt.

Previous years brought us little vignettes as seasonal sets. This year the seasonal lineup seem to get the Brickheadz treatment.
This trend started off with 40270 Valentine’s Bee for Valentine’s day and continues with 40271 Easter Bunny.

Last years The Lego Ninjago Movie has brought us a lot of great sets. One of the reasons for The Lego Ninjago Movie themes popularity is probably its large mechs.
Three mechs have also been rendered at a much smaller scale as polybags so far. 30379 Quake Mech is one of these polybags with a miniature rendition of Coles mech.

The gift with purchase program is one of the reasons why I like to shop at shop.lego.com. These gifts vary from exclusive minifigures to proper sets like the recent 40290 60 Years of the LEGO Brick.
I usually keep a couple of items on my wishlist, so I can purchase them later, when an interesting promotion comes along.
In May of 2017 Lego gave away 40268 R3-M2. While this particular promotion wasn’t the reason for my purchase I still ended up with my own little astromech droid. Continue reading “Lego 40268 – R3-M2”
