This is pretty big news, its pretty much everywhere. Disney has bought Lucasfilm and have announced that they are making movies 7,8, and 9.
Honestly I dont know what to think of this. under Disneys wings it could either go the way of the marvel franchise and be a great thing to happen to Star Wars, or they could totally mess things up.
what I’m interested to see is what new LEGO sets come out of this.
I’m a huge fan of Jason Freeny’s work and highly recommend you check out *everything* he’s done if you haven’t already. This is the coolest thing I’ve seen in I don’t know how long.
On October 19-21, hundreds of LEGO fans joined in a Creation Nation event at Washington Square in Tigard Oregon, where they helped build a large sale map of the United States. Here’s some pictures if the event:
That’s how it was on Friday. On Sunday it would be full of creative models!
Today is October 26, 2012. While the severs first opened to founders on October 8, 2010, it was exactly two years ago today that LEGO Universe opened to rest of the community. In memory, I made a little video tribute, using footage I recorded during last three months of the game. Enjoy. 🙂
This popped up in the feed, amazing picture from classicsmiley as usual 😀
Some pretty neat stuff is coming down the pipe, most exciting argueably is TMNT! Turtles have been in modular block form for some time courtesy of Megablows and now we get to see it realized right. Makes you wonder if a Turtles TT Lego game might be in the works too?
Hobbit sets have been revealed and the Dwarf beards look just boss. I’ll need a 6pack of each.
Here’s a set I won’t be picking up but definitely try and get the figs on bricklink or a toy show somewhere, the Daily Bugle:
Also I just heard on the weekend that there will be Lone Ranger sets in 2013. I wonder how much new elements this line will generate, probably a lot of great new hair pieces at the very least and some new colours, or parts in other colours.

Hey guys, how’s everyone doing? Just wanted to drop in and say, I very much so am missing the old times- more than usual. That’s all.
Hello! Michaelvortex here.
as you know brickcon was this last weekend, So my twin brother (MaverickDengo), father, sister, and some friends loaded up into the car and hopped on a ferry over to seattle sunday morning. Upon arrival the lines where ok, but as the day progressed the place got packed! I could hardly take a picture without someone bumping me and messing up my pictures 🙂
There were tons of amazing models to see. Some highlights included a Gigantic throne with a brick built ocean king (from the series 7 minifigs) which had some dancing shark guys and swimming mermaids underneath, a massive Hogwarts School/Castle (I’ve never seen Harry Potter) with cut away sections and detailed interior, a gigantic Seattle Space Needle and a smaller one with some superheroes flying around it, a giant atlantis themed scorpion walker/submarine thing, some awesome pirate ships, and many many other amazing builds!
We where there for about two hours and took in all the sights. We decided to head out about noon to go home. As we where leaving we found Steve/HappyPappy. He walked right past me because of course he didn’t know what I looked like, 😛 so I went up to him and said hi. My twin brother and I talked to him for a couple minutes and found out we barely missed running into each other at the LEGO store on thursday. We snapped a pic with him and then headed home.
All in all, we had a great time! The convention was awesome and there was tons to see! I hope to see more of you guys there next year!
