Moon 1969 – first step on the moon.

Here is another entry for Ideas’s LEGO Moments in Space contest. This one depicts first step of the moon. If you want to have it as gift with purchase set on Shop@Home, please vote for it here.

Funny story is, when i started building it got a little bit carried away. The number of elements is right, as both versions have about 300 of them, but the size is 2 times too big 🙂

I like the look of it a lot, but the contest version is the small one.

Please also check my other try at this contest here:  http://crazy.builders/2018/02/10/3-2-1-liftoff/

 

3… 2… 1… LIFTOFF!!!

This is my entry into LEGO Moments in Space contest on IDEAS.

If you like it,  please vote and it may become Gift with Purchase Set available at Shop@Home.  The set has 2 modes – first is the rocket standing on a platform that can be great ornament on any shelf, second is the rocket in the very moment of start, which looks even greater.

Here is a closer look:

Book about LEGO House

There will be unique book available in LEGO House that is centered on LEGO House creation. First edition is only 2000 copies.  So pretty rare. Here is more info:

Title: Building a Dream

Author: LEGO House and e-types.

Price: 249 DKK – The book can only be purchased at LEGO® House in Billund.

Language: English.

Edition: 2000 pcs.

Idea development and construction of LEGO House has taken seven years. On 28 September 2017, a proud director, Jesper Vilstrup, finally opened the doors to Denmark’s newest experience center together with the royal family and with the attention of world press.

LEGO® House is a unique experience house located in the center of Billund – Home of the Brick. Here, LEGO fans of all ages can experience the magic of the LEGO universe and get the ultimate LEGO experience all year round. Both kids and adults meet a number of new LEGO experiences and a sea of LEGO bricks, where you can unleash your creativity.

The heart of the 12.000 m2 LEGO House is the experience zones which consist of four colored play areas, a spectacular Masterpiece Gallery, where fans can exhibit their impressive creations and a History Collection, where guests experience the company’s and LEGO brand’s development over time.

Building a Dream is built as a combined interview and photo book, which both tells the vision behind the house and through great photos shows the development of idea and building. Three people have been at the heart of the project: Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, 3rd generation LEGO owner, Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, chairman of LEGO Brand Group and Bjarke Ingels, international architect.

Photos are taken by photographer Jens Honoré.

Wooeden Roller Coaster

I always wanted to build roller coaster out of the Lego bricks, but after i have seen this construction by Chairudo i will pass. Won’t build anything half as impressive.

Then there is that new roller coaster system LEGO is releasing in 2018 sets, that makes building your home version of a roller coaster track much more possible.

The laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie

 

maria-curie

Maria Skłodowska-Curie was one of the most outstanding figures in the world of science. Born in Poland, she studied and worked in France. Together with her husband, a French physicist – Pierre Curie – she discovered two radioactive elements – polonium and radium. She was the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize and the first person in the world and the only woman to receive this award twice – in two areas – chemistry and physics. She was friend of Albert Einstein. As one of the first women she made a driving license. She was not afraid to break old rules in the world where woman were just starting to fight for their rights.

I am very impressed by the achievements of Maria Skłodowska-Curie and therefore I decided to honor her in a way that I am the most familiar with – with a LEGO® creation. By voting we can make the scene an official set. Let’s do it!

Writes Krzysztof Słomowski also known as Crises, my Zbudujmy.to! colleague,  in his LEGO IDEAS submission. I think the project is worth supporting, and spreading around, so lets all help to make it a real Lego set!

You can vote for this project here and then remember to visit Krzysiek’s Flicker account, as he has some more cool builds in his account. I always admire him for putting so much story into his builds!

LEGO Ideas 2017 first batch review.

Over the past several months, the LEGO Review Board has carefully reviewed the 11 projects that reached 10,000 supporters between January and May 2017, our first review qualification period of 2017. We’re grateful for the energy and effort that each member has put into their project, as it’s certainly a big feat to get 10,000 supporters in itself. Congrats to everyone!

Tron Legacy Light Cycle

What m’i talking about? I’m talking about Cristiano Grassi’s project you can see on the picture below:

Spend a Night in LEGO House!

Unleash your imagination, bring your wildest LEGO vision to life, and fall asleep surrounded by 25 million bricks.

BILLUND – November 2nd – Airbnb and LEGO® House unveil today their most BRICKtastic overnight experience to date. For one night, the newly opened LEGO House in Billund, Denmark will become one family’s private playground. Aspiring master builders, young and old, are asked to put their imagination to the test and describe one thing they would build together with their family if they had an infinite supply of LEGO bricks to enter for a chance to win a night in the LEGO House.

Winners of the contest will enjoy the LEGO House all to themselves for a whole night. They will sleep in a dream LEGO bedroom under a giant LEGO waterfall and create their winning entry with the skillful support of the host, Jamie Berard, one of the finest Master Builders in the world and a true expert of the brick.

“I am so intrigued to see what people will imagine”, says Jamie Berard, Design Manager Specialist at the LEGO Group. “We have unlimited bricks here, and in some ways it can be a bit challenging but it also liberates you to imagine something that is truly meaningful and expressive. The uniqueness of the opportunity to stay in the home of the LEGO brick should hopefully inspire everyone. That’s how I feel when I come here”.

The full experience will begin on November 24th, when the winners will arrive at the LEGO House to be greeted by Jamie who will welcome them to their home for the night. First, they will enjoy lunch where they will be tasked with building their order out of LEGO bricks before it’s sent to the kitchen to be made into real food and served by two friendly robot waiters.

After lunch, the house will close to the general public leaving it empty and ready for the winners to run through the rooms, explore and play under the expert guidance of Jamie. First, they will marvel at the foot of the Tree of Creativity, built by hand from over 6 million bricks. Moving onto the Masterpiece Gallery, showcasing LEGO creations from fans from around the world. From there, they will move on to the Experience Zones where they will be able to direct their own movie, engineer robotic cars, design cities and much more. Nostalgic adults can head down to the basement to trace the timeline of LEGO history and reminisce over the most iconic sets ever produced.

As the adventure comes to an end, they will be invited to the final stop on the journey – a bedroom floating underneath a 6-metre-tall LEGO waterfall, surrounded by a pool of bricks. The whole space will be transformed into a home fit for a superfan, with all items made totally out of LEGO bricks: the teddy bear, lamps, the alarm clock, the TV, story books, and even a pet cat! The home consists of two bedrooms, with beds nestled in pools filled with LEGO System and LEGO DUPLO® bricks, as well as a living room, where the winners can cozy up in LEGO armchairs while enjoying some LEGO TV. But before drifting off into their most colorful dreams ever, the winners will need to get to grips with the endless supply of bricks and bring their winning entry to life.

“Airbnb is all about helping people find magical and unforgettable travel experiences. What could be more magical than having the brand new LEGO House all to yourselves for the night? This really is a dream come true for any family with a passion for LEGO and I doubt there will be much sleeping as there is so much to enjoy in this incredible space,” says James McClure, Airbnb’s General Manager for UK and Nordics.
