We skipped a week last Saturday for BrickCon, so here we go with a two-week roundup.
- Dan & Nannan in LEGO Book: Our fellow bloggers Dan and Nannan are featured in a new LEGO Book from DK.
- Ben 10: The new Ben 10 figures evoke the dreaded Galidor for many of us. But are they really that bad if they help sell LEGO?
- LEGO Atlantis: Reactions to the first high-res pics of 2010 LEGO Atlantis sets are rather more positive. They’re kind of like Space Police … under the sea!
- BrickCon 2009: The biggest LEGO fan convention west of the Mississippi happened in Seattle last weekend, with five of our seven contributors in attendance. I’ve written a wrap-up, as well as an “after-action review” of Zombie Apocafest 2009.
- LSWVD out: The new LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary has also just been released, and includes an exclusive Ceremonial Luke minifig (though early reports indicate some issues with the fig’s quality).
- Yarrr!!!: A new LEGO Pirates set, 10210 Imperial Flagship, was unveiled at events in the US and UK. Pirate fans rejoice the world over.
- Winter Toy Shop: Though the Pirates Advent Calendar won’t be pillaging American shores this year, 10199 Winter Toy Shop may assuage the holiday LEGO needs of North American LEGO fans.
