Things you didn’t know about Lego!

This new set comes packed with a load of features. It’s not launched yet and there is no official picture. But there are some official descriptions on various sites. The house itself look like a new Modular building.

Apartment of Peter Parker with various elements, trap door function, an exploding window… The street corner includes a kiosk with newspapers. On the roof  there is a function for launching Minifigures. Of the five Minifigures I’m sure the Iron Spider-Man will be most popular!


The history of Lego – animated film

I published a post in 2016 about this video. I just want to give all Lego fans who haven’t seen this story a new chance. When The LEGO Group celebrated its’ 80th birthday, they made this animated film to let everyone know more about the history of Lego.

World’s tallest Lego train spiral

The world tallest Lego train spiral tower is located in a toy store in Romania town Baia Mare. It’s a very impressive built. I like the idea to attach a Go Pro at the front of the train, so you can follow the train on it’s way to the top of the spiral tower. Another awesome feeling is to reach the finish and when they aim the camera and look down through the whole construction. Great built!
