Love you to the moon and back!

Tommy Frost has been giving us quite the alphabetical tour of the LEGO theme month known as FebRovery. But, just in time for Valentine’s Day, he’s taken a short detour before the letter M to cover four other letters: LOVE. The heart-shaped rover is adorable, with subtle bits like the black and yellow striping and red wheels paying homage to my Valentine: Classic Space. The space-y textures atop the vehicle, created with various light gray bits and bobs, are a great touch. And the surrounding landscape rounds out the scene well, dappled with light blue moon flowers and pink terrain.

Here’s an aerial shot better showcasing the rover’s cardial shape. Good luck to Tommy and his copilot Amy as they explore this pink planet together. And I hope you, dear reader, have a spectacular Valentine’s Day!


LEGO 40522 Valentine Lovebirds – Lovey-dovey, except they’re parrots. [Review]

It seems that merch for the holidays shows up earlier and earlier every year. Case in point, LEGO has revealed their Valentine’s Day themed holiday set – LEGO 40522 (Love Birds). We don’t know the price yet, but based on the 286-piece part count and the 2021 Valentine’s set, we’re guessing it’ll be in the $15-20 US range. We’ll find out for sure when on January 1st when this set is officially released! In the meantime, we can take an even earlier look at this offering  and see if the love shines through or not.

UPDATE! These cuties are now available for US $12.99 | CAN $16.99 | UK £11.99 and they’re called “Valentine Lovebirds”. Good to know!

Friday Night Fights (Round 36)

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights! I told myself I was’t going to get all sappy and do a Valentines Day Fight round …. but awesome MOCs are awesome MOCs, regardless of the occasion… plus I love bots. Let’s go to the tale of the tape:

In the red corner Nathan Proudlove (Proudlove) gives us free hugs with Lovebot:

Proximity to Valentine’s Day seems appropriate enough for the Halloween/Christmas hybrid that is The Nightmare Before Christmas.

This vignette by Stefan (brainbikerider) featuring Jack Skellington singing beneath the full moon won a recent vignette contest among Austrian LEGO fans.
