As 2012 winds down, we reflect back on the LEGO year that was, with a look at the LEGO news stories here on The Brothers Brick that all of you out there read most.
- LEGO rejects Shaun of the Dead project on CUUSOO
- LEGO fan Heather Braaten’s death confirmed
- First photos of new 2013 LEGO Super Heroes minifigures
- 10225 UCS R2-D2 announced
- LEGO Minecraft Micro World set officially unveiled
- LEGO Friends announcement
- First pictures of new 2013 LEGO sets
- 10937 Arkham Asylum Breakout unveiled at BrickCon
- LEGO news from Toy Fair 2012 in New York City
- Monster Fighters 10228 Haunted House announced
Not surprisingly, announcements about new and upcoming sets fill most of the list.
But this has been another tragic year for the adult fan community as we lost one of our own — beloved SEALUG member and regular BrickCon attendee Heather “LEGO Girl” Braaten went missing at the end of March, and we learned shortly thereafter that she had died.
News about the new “LEGO for girls” from the end of 2011 also ranks high throughout 2012. We’ll have a full post about that here tomorrow, on the anniversary of the announcement.
