Nanoblock McDonald's

Nanoblock McDonald’s

  Another “foray” into the world of Nanoblock today. Here is what I found at my local McDonald’s a few weeks ago:     I was tempted to get one. But, then I remembered that it’d just be another dust magnet, and space is running...

Broken Orthanc Tower

The Horror!

A few days ago, my daughter was playing a bit too energetically, a bit too close to one of my “Lego shelves” and this happened:     The upper half of the Orthanc Tower fell down to the floor (from about 2 meters high). This...

Werewolf Story - 2

Werewolf Story

Just a silent Werewolf story:               The end…  

Scratchy killed Mickey Mouse

Whoops! Wrong Mouse…

  One of the things that I love about Lego is how different universes perfectly mesh with each other. Latest example in date, but one I’m not sure the Lego Company or Disney would like very much, is when Scratchy met Mickey Mouse:    ...

Lego Minecraft Knock-offs

Lego Minecraft Knock-Offs

In Japan, one can find some Lego knock-offs from time to time. In 100 Yen Shops, but also and mostly in Gashapon. I showed you one before, and while I still stumble upon some from time to time, they’re usually not that interesting. For that first batch,...

Dark Forest Fortress - Lego - 4

Dark Forest Fortress

One frustrating thing about being a fan of Lego and living in Japan is not as much their price (more expensive than the US, but about the same as Europe), but the absence of deals. I often see on Reddit some crazy deals that people...

Bob at the Skeleton party

Skeleton Party

    Bob seriously misunderstood when he heard about the skeleton party…    

Lego Civil War - Captain America - Iron Man

Captain America: Civil War… and a special guest…

  A short while ago, I mentioned how I didn’t care for the Batman Vs Superman movie, and was not planning to watch it, and should re-enact it with Lego instead. 😉 But there’s another major super hero battle that’s coming our way, and that...

Lego Uniqlo

Lego at Uniqlo

  I went to Uniqlo a few days ago (full disclosure: to buy a shirt) and looking at the newest T-shirts, I found out that they have some Lego T-shirts for the next few months. If you’re not familiar with Uniqlo, it’s a Japanese chain...

Batman vs Superman

Batman Vs Superman

    So, I just bought Batman (the armored version) and Superman on Bricklink, this way I can make my own Batman Vs Superman at home and I won’t have to go see the movie. I’ve been kinda curious about it, but seeing the awful...

Lego Janitor

John the Lego Janitor

    While he wasn’t always happy with cleaning other people’s mess, John the Lego Janitor still took a certain pride in his job.    

C-3PO Lego - Force Awakens

Who is this droid?

    Who is this droid? I have no idea… I probably do not recognize him because of the red arm…   (funny how I made a similar joke a few months ago)    

Peppa Pig

What has happened to Peppa Pig?

  Sure, those are not real Lego (they’re Duplo compatible, though), but this is how I’ve found Peppa Pig and George the other day:     So, sure, my daughter has just discovered that band-aid can have a bunch of secondary purposes, she’s even gotten...
