Netflix has produced interesting documentary about LEGO House. It was available in us for quite some time, but it finally can be seen in Poland where i live. I’m featured in the documentary for a few frames, filmed while preparing models for Masterpiece Gallery, where my models were exhibited for almost a year.
You can view the video following this link: https://www.netflix.com/title/81002885
Fiki Miki is tribute to old classic polish comic books – “Awantury i wybryki małej małpki Fiki Miki” by Kornel Makuszyński and Marian Walentynowicz, more famous for their “Adventures of Koziołek Matołek”. This build was supposed to be exhibited during Polish Comics exhibition in Krakow’s National Museum, along with some other builds from my LUG Zbudujmy To! but was canceled lastminute.
That is not the only model i made for this exhibit. Gapiszon is another hero from my childhood reads. Here he is in a Brickheads version:
We try to keep as far away from politics as we can, but when famous Freedom Fighter, Nobel Prize Winner, former President of Poland Lech Wałęsa takes a photo with our models, it is something to be proud of.
Lech Wałęsa was invited to the 50th anniversary of Legoland, and Lego made special surprise for him – his own brick build Miniland scale figure.
During the visit, he and his grandsons also visited LEGO House, where he took photos with models of Polish Builders that are being presented in Masterpieces Gallery. Here is he with Jetboy’s creations:
And with Jerac’s builds:
It seems exactly 75 years ago Little Prince book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery was released. Thank you Sue Ann for reminding. I have something for the occasion i built some time ago:
The model is currently being displayed in Masterpieces Gallery in LEGO House.
Isn’t that crossover of AT-AT and rabbit cute? It was build by Servator, aka Krzysztof Pusz to celebrate Easter. So lets celebrate together. Happy Easter Everyone!
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/
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:
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.
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.
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!
