Buy LEGO: 2008 Indiana Jones sets now available from the LEGO Shop

The main LEGO Shop page on hasn’t been updated yet, but the new Indiana Jones sets are now available from the LEGO Shop online.

You can get all four sets in the Indiana Jones™ Classic Adventures Collection. In fact, if you buy them from that link, you’ll be helping us pay the bills. ;-)

And now for a celebrity endorsement.

(Josie the dachshund is the celebrity, not me. She’s in a book.)

Destroyer of very small civilizations

Look familiar? It’s a microscale version of Nannan’s Armageddon tank! Both Nannan and I were fooled when we saw this come up in our contacts’ photostreams, so kudos to Adrian Drake for such an excellent itty bitty Armageddon!

Check out several more “Micro Fanboy Creations” in the full photoset on Flickr.

Destroyer of civilizations

Merry Christmas to everyone from me! I present you something less joyful for those who want to deflate some overinflated holiday cheer. Tired of hearing wishes for peace on Earth? I bring you Armageddon!

This is a motorized black fantasy tank. In addition to movement, it also features a rotating infantry grinder and a self-firing weapons system. Please read the gruesome backstory on MOCpages and enjoy the youtube video.

So, what’d you get for Christmas?

My lovely wife apparently went out at the last minute and found both 7620 Indiana Jones Motorcycle Chase and 7621 Indiana Jones and the Lost Tomb.

Naturally, I spent Christmas morning savoring the build:

Oh, and I can’t wait to play LEGO Indiana Jones next summer on my new Wii:

I hope everyone got what they wanted for Christmas — I sure did! :-D
