The LEGO Friends line launched in 2012 has certainly generated its share of discussion and even controversy. But whether you’re here because you want to read our reviews of the LEGO Friends sets or because you want to see what else LEGO fans are building with the new figures and LEGO parts, you’ll find a whole lot to like about LEGO Friends here on The Brothers Brick.

When LEGO themes collide: Exo-Force + Friends = Exo-Friends

Tyler Sky has been thinking about Friends minidolls and the retired LEGO Exo-Force theme, and perhaps eating a little too much cheese before bed. “What if Exo-Force continued to evolve, and then got assimilated by Friends?” These six Exo-Friends were the result. The minidolls look very cute with their new hair styles even if some of their exosuits are rather more intimidating.

We have an eye-catching lime exosuit, loosely-based on the alternate build suggestion for 7712 Supernova. Those clawed toes look very flexible and give the impression this Exo-Friends character is not limited by gravity and can climb any obstacle.

Come in and grab a cupcake... while the city is about to be destroyed

LEGO Super Heroes sets have some of our most favorite minifigures of all times. And, of course, superheroes need epic surroundings for their epic brawls. But the buildings we get in official sets sometimes are not as big and detailed as we would like them to be. Gzu Bricks takes matters into his hands and upgrades the 76038 Attack on Avengers Tower set in the most adorable way — by adding some friendship! The cheery 41119 Cupcake Café set takes up residence right below Tony Stark’s apartment, and now fighting over the last blueberry muffin is the only acceptable reason to start a war.
