I’m not super familiar with car models. All I know is that I love anything that looks like a Jeep. And this sand blue SUV is my kind of fun. The rig, loaded with supplies, is the work of Koala Yummies, and it has me itching for an adventure!
I really like the body shape, which is smooth and cohesive from front to back. All the bits really work together to create a fun addition to any outdoorsy scene.

LEGO and storytelling are a match made in heaven. As much as I enjoy building for the sake of building, I also enjoy LEGO as a medium for producing a narrative. Markus Ronge had me hooked last month when he shared a teaser poster for an upcoming series of story-driven steampunk builds. A few days ago, Marcus revealed the first part of his conceptualized world in the form of Maersk Pier, owned and operated by fourth-generation shipping mogul, Herman van de Maersk.
Bored with the shipping industry, Herman decided to build this majestic port to serve luxury airships and their wealthy clientele. As a steampunk model, Maersk Pier is breathtakingly beautiful and does a great job of blending Victorian-style architecture with steampunk fantasy. The extensive use of white works well and reminds me of marble, which witnessed a resurgence in use as a building material during the 19th Century Greek Revival period. Speaking of history, the model’s name is a clever nod to LEGO’s lengthy relationship with the Maersk shipping company, which has included a number of Maersk co-branded LEGO sets over the years.

Even more than 35 years after its first screening, Raiders of the Lost Ark still remains a perfect adventure movie. Lego Fjotten masterfully recreates the iconic Cairo scene capturing all the characters including that bad little monkey! Bonus points are for the minifigures right from the 7195 Ambush in Cairo set, and with all the accessories around you can easily re-enact that action-packed passage.
Trees are an understandably common sight among LEGO builds, but rarely does one come across a style that is truly unique and breathtaking. No doubt however, that is exactly the experience shared by these lucky explorers in this latest creation by Jonas Wide. Using a large number of tail and tusk pieces, Jonas has grown an incredibly flowing and characteristic forest of mangrove trees that seems as alive as the birds and crabs that live in it.
