LEGO Movie directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, was an unspoken success (earned $469 million worldwide), no wonder Sequel was planned to by released in 2017. That date was then moved to May, 2018, and it was recently moved again to 8th of February 2019. Rob Schreb, writer, comedian and tv director/producer will debut as a movie director
With so much pushing that date does not seem final. There are other LEGO movies that are being produced right now. So while we wait for LEGO Movie sequel, we will be able to see The LEGO Batman Movie in 2017, The LEGO Ninjago Movie also in 2017 and The Billion Brick Race gods know when.
This photo taken by Julius von Brunk is so amazing i couldn’t resist posting it. It has so much life within it, and the classic space theme is also making it very special for me.
The far-out intergalactic space rock band The Highway Stars performing in front of a group of ‘nauts!
Says Julius in description of his photo. The skill of photography is also very high with this one. Photo was taken with a glass plate and a set of Christmas Lights. I would need to experiment with such setup, i ll share my experiences if i do.
Now follow Julius on Flickr as he has much more treats of advanced Lego Photography.
Mercedes Arctos is quite popular in LEGO, mainly because of the 42043 flagship Technic model of year 2015. Firefighters is quite often build theme by AFOLs. Smigol of Zbudujmy.to joins those two trends with his 2 minifig firefighting trucks.
Those are not the first firebrigade cars he built, and as usually those are full of detail. Take a look at some more of those little MOC’s photos and follow Kamil’s flickr.
Warsaw’s Palace of Culture and Science was originally build by Russian architect Lew Rudniew in 1952-1955. This LEGO brick version was built by me (Jetboy) during 2015-2016.
This build consist of almost 30000 bricks, is over 125 cm high, and it is the biggest thing i ever built. It’s base 4×5 baseplates, although i seen bigger things built out of LEGO bricks, is huge enough to call it crazy.
In late 2015 Polish LUGs were approached by LEGO Poland, to build some most iconic Polish landmarks AFOL style fir their Zone of Adult Fans of LEGO. We made projects in LDD, and 4 of them were selected to be built with real bricks. Palace of Culture and Science was one of them. It took me about half year from starting project in LDD to handing the model to LEGO Poland, it was and adventure of it’s own. I will write in depth article about it soon. Subscribe, so you will not miss it!
I was building it keeping LEGO Architecture style in mind. That’s why there is that black, stripe around it. The thing is that Palace is so huge, i had to make it 2 studs wide, as one stud tiles would be hardly noticeable.
“A Few Adventures of Sparrow Tweet” (Przygód kilka wróbla Ćwirka) is a Polish cartoon from the 80’s from Se-Ma-For studio, more well known for it’s Flappy Bear (Bear Flappy Ear) stop motion animation. Animation itself was mediocre, but wonderful narration of Jan Kobuszewski was making up for it. That however was lost in translation and the series never was very popular outside Poland.
This beautiful creation of Sparrow Tweet, and his friend Klekot* in under who’s nest Tweet was living was brought to you by BHs, who built it for LUGPol‘s exhibition in Łódz Poland. That is where Se-Ma-For studio was located, hence the “Polish Cartoons” theme of the show.
Daniel Krentz, retired LEGO designer passed away at the weekend.
That is sad news, because Daniel was not only lego designer who
brought us classic sets like Yellow Castle, but he was probably first Adult Fan of Lego.
Daniel was born and raised in the USA in 1937 living in Colorado and Chicago, he discovered LEGO bricks while at college in the 1960’s. He bought as many brick packs as he could afford on his salary and soon his fan creations came to the attention of LEGO’s US distributor at the time (Samsonite) who began using them as display models to increase sales. Soon after they showed off his MOCs to visiting LEGO reps he was recruited to be a designer in Billund Denmark. He was both the first AFOL and the first non-Dane hired to be a designer by the company. He started work as a designer in the mid 1970’s and continued until the year 2000. In Denmark he fell in love and married his wife who passed in the 1990’s, attended church every Sunday and lived a quiet peaceful life in Billund building with LEGO bricks every single day.
Daniel was the designer of many LEGO sets in his time but among his most iconic sets are:
If his work or life had a positive impact on yours we will make sure his family gets any messages you would like to leave.
After retiring Daniel has kept his interests in LEGO. I have meet him during last Fan Weekend, unfortunately we did not talk long enough. Daniel had inspired so many builders with his creations… He will be missed.
If you are one of those crazy afols that go to Skaerbaek Fan Weekend in Denmark, you would be interested that Monday programme has been announced.
