Today Lego makes a relaunch of the 2008 Creator Expert of Taj Mahal designed by my friend Henrik Anderson. Today he works as a Star Wars designer. The new set seems similar to the old version and is made out of 5923 pieces. They have just added one tiny extra brick compared to the old model. This famous building is well recognized as one of the world’s architectural wonders.
One of my own MOC buildings I’m working on now is a Mountain Lodge. The house is hanging out from a steep cliff. The exterior has a ruff wooden surface and is built out of waste old wood. I’ve patched the facade with different brown color bricks to give it a lively look. Each corner is drawn out to give some depth and the tails is placed horisontal. You will reach the entrance by a spectacular narrow bridge. Well this is an on going project so I don’t have any estimate when the built will be finished.

Three days ago a post was published on Reddit forum about new rumors of a possible set number ”10256” connected to a 2018 modular building release. This is just an assumption! There is not yet any official statement made by Lego or pressrelease to substantiate the post. My hope and guess is that it will be a release of a modular with two buildings like Petshop and at least 3000 bricks. I can just long for a larger scale set with some challenges.
Read and look at the picture on Facebook page ”Lego Modular Building”
Tomas Kašpařík designed this huge ferris wheel and luckily got a buyer to finance the built. The inspiration comes from the London Eye and is built out of 40000 pieces to an estimated cost of € 10000. This giant build is 3,65 meters tall. Believe it or not, it fits into a small car for exhibition journeys. Cool!
On the 1st of November you can find the new Lego Idea set in the store. The set is designed by Maia Weinstock and the set is a tribute to 4 pioneering women of NASA. The theme is well known from the movie Hidden Figures about the women who served a vital role in the early years of the U.S. space program. The set reached 10,000 supporters in just 15 days, wow!
About this time last year, to be exact on the 17th of October, Lego launched there last modular building. The Assembly Square was developed to celebrate ten years of LEGO Modular Buildings. I’m curious of the upcoming 2018 modular set. I wonder if Lego will come out with a new press release soon…. On Brickset Forum there are different rumors, but not any substantial leads what I can tell. I really look foward to the new set!
Next year 2018 is the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick. There are rumors of what different sets Lego will launch to celebrate this happening. The only information so far from Lego is that it will be five sets based on the Classic theme. Maybe a set of Classic Space, a Classic Town, a Classic Castle, who knows!
Great gift for my 15th birthday, got the 10243 Parisian Restaurant! This set from 2014 is so far one of my favorite modular buildings. Jamie Berard and his designer team started from this model to offer more detailed building experiences. They have focused both on the exterior as well as the interior design. Packed with awesome details, tiled floor, lots of kitchen units, roof terrace, flowers, apartment with pull-down bed, kitchenette and fireplace. Thanks!
