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

Congratulations to BrickBros UK for their inspired design, which will officially become one of the next LEGO Ideas sets!

Classic Space IDEA set

I rarely write about Lego ideas submissions, unless they are already made into the official set, but this time i feel the urge to share this project to help make it happen!

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