Toy Fair New York is in full swing, and that means more than just sweet new LEGO sets. It also means cool new LEGO merchandise like books, plushies, luggage, and clothing to accessorize your real-world life. LEGO and their partners have revealed a slew of new products that you’re going to want to check out.
Packing LEGO creations for a convention can be a tricky proposition. Some builders construct custom-made crates out of wood and foam, while others carefully wrap their masterworks in clothing in their carry-on. I cram 50 or 60 model cars into cardboard boxes and hope for the best and “the best” often involves hours of re-building and frustration. Chris Yu says hogwash to all of that with this brilliant LEGO creation that packs itself. It is impressive enough in suitcase mode with its outer shell outfitted in a Classic Space motif and made to resemble a piece of carry-on luggage.
