Hispabrick is a LEGO magazine that’s published both in English and Spanish and available for free in digital format and also in print (at cost) for the past 12 years. The first issue for 2020 is now available after a short delay as Lluís Gibert from the editorial board had a new addition to his family! Congrats and we welcome a BFOD (Baby Fan Of Duplo) to the community.
Early on when Jason Allemann from JK Brickworks first revealed and eventually submitted the wonderful Pursuit of Flight on LEGO Ideas. He also recreated two variations, a scene with Santa and his reindeers, and also modification of the scene that captured many Star Wars Fans hearts with the nail-biting Trench Run scene from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
While we’ll never get to see the Pursuit of Flight be made into an official LEGO set, he’s released the building instruction guide and parts for the Trench Run.
You can download the parts and instructions from the JK Brickworks website here, which consists of an add-on guide if you wish to motorise the setup.
I’m always stoked to see how much can be represented with so little. Micro builds always seem easy and gives me feeling of “Why didn’t I think of that??” but in fact, they’re a lot harder to pull off than you’d think, in getting something represented appropriately with the limited number of bricks on hand. The Lesser Adjutant is a species of the stork family found mostly in the regions of Southeast Asia, and Malaysian builder Marco Gan captures the likeness of these birds eloquently, with each made up of just ten LEGO elements.
With Easter celebrations just around the corner, LEGO has released an Easter Egg exclusive Gift With Purchase set. Available from the 23rd of March until 13th of April (or while stocks last) the 239-piece Easter Egg is available with purchases of $50 in the US and Canada and £55 in the UK. We have a quick review for you to decide if this is something you’d like to save up for and enjoy during the holidays.
We’ll never know if Annie is doing “OK” despite the few hundred times that Michael Jackson asked the very same question. What we do know is the signature moonwalk move by the King of Pop that’s moulded into our minds decades later. This micro build of the moonwalk in action perfectly angled by the 1×1 tile with clip by Joeri Ridder coupled with the tip of the fedora is the embodiment of how a simple looking dance moves together with the right beats can impact a generation of music.
The Brothers Brick shared the actual in-person look at the upcoming Collectible Minifigures Series 20 celebrating the 10 Anniversary since the introduction in 2010 via the reveal at Toy Fair New York just weeks ago. Today we get to see the official product images released by The Minifigure Store (UK).
Santoki is a distributor of LEGO LED lights and stationery, and they’ve just revealed a new lineup of merchandise at the Toy Fair New York this year. Their products include pens, notebooks, keychains, and stationery which all predominantly feature the new LEGO Dots theme hitting store shelves next month.
LEGO has revealed the followup to the Friends Play Cubes with a Series 2 offering at Toy Fair New York. Series 1 was released earlier this year in January. Play Cubes are tiny vignettes with stickers and mini builds featuring various themes related to a mini-doll’s passions. The glittered cubes enable builders to create scenes and makes it easy for compact storage and on-the go play.
At Toy Fair New York today, LEGO has revealed the latest LEGO Collectible Minifigures, celebrating the 10th anniversary since they were first introduced in 2010. These will be available on April 19, 2020 and priced at USD $4.99 each. This will be the 20th installment of the regular Collectible Minifigures series (not based on a license like Disney or The LEGO Movie) to be released over the past decade.
Back in 2017, Ted Andes built one of my favourite LEGO Star Wars-esqe ships that could have been a page taken from the galaxy far far away. This year he’s taken that inspiration and made it into a full-blown evolution of a Y-wing and it looks amazingly sleek and fit for a Rebel bombing run.
Utilising the canopy of the X-Wing and the shades of the popular yellow-themed Y-Wing from Star Wars, taking out bad guys never looked so good.
What I love about LEGO is the ability to build anything you can dream of. What sets apart talented builders such as Gerald Cacas to mortal set builders like me is the skills to just use pieces from a particular set, in this case, the official LEGO 10265 Ford Mustang set, and turn it into the Tesla Cybertruck!
And if that wasn’t enough, this alternate build has doors that open and a (modified) trunk that seems a bit more practical than the original. Elon Musk may want to consider a blue paint job as an offering as it doesn’t look too bad from the unpainted metal skin showcased at the unveiling. Is that enough to tempt you into giving it a go? Grab yours at LEGO Online stores if you don’t already own the Mustang.
