Banana Slip

  Hmmm… This Banana suit kinda got me inspired:   “Wow! Dude… What happened to you?!”   “You won’t believe it! I was minding my business, having a walk, listening to some live music, eating my favorite fruit, when suddenly…”   “Rrrrrhhhhhh!”   “Rrrrrhhhhhh!!!!!” “Grrowwwwlllll!” “Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!...

Stormtroopers and Giant Owl

    “Dude… Seriously… That’s not even a droid… You’re starting to lose it, aren’t you?”    

family-portrait

Family Portrait

    Let’s celebrate the arrival of baby minifigures with a family portrait! Now, my son just celebrated his first birthday (well, we celebrated for him, he had no idea what was going on), so soon, Lego will need to produce toddler minifigures. Next step?...

Making of

Making of

  Today I started a new project that I really care about, and that I hope will turn out OK. It’s especially difficult because a lot of the pictures are supposed to be dark. And neither me, nor my camera are very good with taking...

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...
