Andrew Lee has been tinkering with this mecha for a while now, and this latest variant is reminiscent of Warhammer 40,000. The standard is extremely cool.
As this blog has grown, we’ve changed things a few times to make them better. Last December, we moved from Blogger to our own domain here at Brothers-Brick.com. We’ve also improved performance and reliability by changing to a new Web hosting provider. All of these changes were intended to make your experience more enjoyable, and as a result, we’ve had to become more professional.
One change we’ve had to make for COPPA compliance is restricting Contact Form use and commenting to readers over the age of 13. The software we use for the site simply does not have the features necessary to get your parents’ permission for you to use this site. I’ve added new notices on the Contact Form and above the comment box to reflect this change in policy.
What this means if you’re not 13 yet: If you’re a Brothers-Brick.com reader under the age of 13, the new rules mean that you will no longer be allowed to leave comments or use the Contact Form. You’ll all be welcome back when you turn 13.
It’s official: You can add Adrian Florea to my Favorite Builders list.
I might quibble with the “historical” nature of some of these, but it’s a great collection of minifigs, presented beautifully.
Back in April, I posted about LEGO Ambassador Mark Sandlin’s involvement with the Mars Mission theme. With Castle 2007 out for several months and anticipation building toward next year’s sets, Ben Ellerman takes some time to look back and reflect on his involvement in the development of the current Castle theme.
You can read all about Ben’s contributions to the Castle theme on LEGOfan.org.
Well, it’s that time of the year again. Fans everywhere are running across better and better pictures of upcoming sets. Eurobricks is famous (dare I say notorious?) for finding leaked pictures, and this latest batch is no exception.
Bearing in mind that we don’t yet know if these are just prototypes, and that LEGO has not yet confirmed that these are even “official,” here are a few of my favorites (see Eurobricks for bigger pictures and several more I didn’t include here):
7622 Race for the Stolen Treasure:
7620 Motorcycle Chase:
7668 Rebel Scout Speeder:
7036 Dwarfs Mining:
Of particular note for Castle fans:
- Trolls in brown and green.
- Green dragon with armor.
- Two new helmets for the goblins and two more for the dwarfs.
- A new sword for the goblins and a new club for the trolls.
- Two new beard designs for the dwarfs.
