In the depths of LEGO space and time, the amount of creative ways to build space craft has blossomed exponentially. Sometimes from the most complex of concepts and other times, from something as simple as a basic letter from the alphabet. Dave Kaleta has been working on his letter based starfighter series since the beginning of this year. Though what really impressed me, aside from his great creations, was that his three-year-old son, Elliot, sat predominantly at the head of the build team. Inspired by a Star Wars letter-based starfighter contest a few years back, they set some of their own rules to build by and opened up a newly inspired space.
Growing up learning English as a kid was hard enough with 26 letters, Anne Mette V has 3 whole other letters to contend with in the Danish Alphabet which she has carefully created out of LEGO bricks. LEGO ABC contains a series of simple, beautiful vignettes depicting the different letters. With Dragons, Lions, Pandas and Astronauts all contained in childhood like blocks of beautiful colour, there is plenty to look at. I love the little classroom scene in the bottom right-hand corner.
