Have you ever wondered how its like to live like a minifigure. Well, you can test the coffee experience of the minifigures now. LEGO released this blue LEGO® Iconic mug, made of plastic, stackable and upscaled to 10 times the size of a standard LEGO mug element. There is also a transparent purple version of the mug available in official LEGO Shop.

Extra Minifigure in NinjaGO Set!

Today something unbelievable happened to me. I bought today NinjaGO sets 70756 Dojo Showdown together with 70753 Lawa Falls .According to Brickset and many other sources both sets should normally include the same Anacondrai character Sleven. But I realised that the 70756 Dojo Showdown set has pictured other than Sleven which has a torso printing with 2 snakes on it. I searched for the names for the characters and found pictures for the character as seen below.

NinjaGO Anacondrai character called Chope which has one large snake symbol on its torso. When you look closely you can see that Chope is pictured on the box of set 70756.

Besides the main picture in front of the box, also Chope is pictured on top of the box. I got excited when I found this mistake and opened the box. Than I realised that the Instruction Manual pictured the correct picture of Sleven

Then I see that both minifigures are suprisingly included in the box. They both came out from the original part bag. 

I'm buying and opening LEGO sets for nearly 25 years and I have never seen an extra minifigure in a box. I think that this minifigure is included deliberately because of a possible printing mistake. Either the box or the instructions manual was misprinted and LEGO company decided to include both figure before getting any complaints about the mistake. I searched the internet for this incident and couldn't found any info about it. Either this extra minifigure mistake only happened to me or the early released sets are released with only one minifigure and now they include one extra minifigure.

Amazing Castles!

There are two castle dioramas are shared by talented LEGO builders in Flickr you don't wanna miss. The first castle was built by the César Soares a.k.a. Cesbrick whose creations like medieval buildings were shared in our blog before. Bluewater  castle is large castle with fine detailed walls and unique and nontraditional wall shaping.

The second castle named Amortug was shared by LEGO fan and Eurobricks member Marco den Besten a.k.a. 'Ecclesiastes who is also known for his great creations of Guilds of Historica. The creator also shared many detail photos from the huge built and as you will see the castle interior is full with amazing details as well. Aside from the impressing side of the diorama what I liked the most is the modelling of the trees beneath the castle. I'm not fond of the water sections filled with different colored 1x1 round plates but other than that this diorama is perfect.

GR9 Harrier Model

Flickr member and LEGO fan Carl Greatrix a.k.a bricktrix has shared this beautiful fighter model in his flickr account. The creator is known for many great realistic models like Caterham models, Phantom F4's and many other MOC's. This time he built a very realistic model of GR9 Harrier. The colors and curves of the pieces fit the model incredibly well. The creator also used many stickers as well. In my opinion stickers could be applied as long as they make the model more realistic. One of the details I really like is the propeller detail inside the jet engine, which can be seen in the front view photo. Check out many photos from different angles of this beautiful MOC in detail in Carl's photostream.

The creator also built a stand which is in black color like the plastic model stands instead of clear.

Excellent Natural Forms by Schfio

Today I am very happy since I just discovered a very talented builder's flickr page, named Schfio. I also feel a little shame because I am very late to enjoy his creations. He builds animals and other natural form mostly by using SNOT. Even though he is not using many sophisticated molds, he can construct perfect forms. His part selection's simplicity is in harmony the purity of his creations and his area of interest. I personally congratulate Schfio and gladly share some of his beautiful creations.

Happy New Year! MOC Compilations from 2014!

Last year we have blogged the MOC compilations from creators who shared their MOC's. This year the number of the complications increased significantly. Last year we said that 2013 was surely one of the best years according to the quantity and quality of the LEGO creations but 2014 was even better! Check out the compilations to be sure not to miss anything amazing.

Amazing medieval fantasy buildings from César Soares

Flickr member and LEGO Fan César Soares a.k.a. Cesbrick shared these magnificent medieval buildings (cottages, tower, tree-house, windmill, etc...) created for this years CCC contest in his Flickr account during previous Month. He have built at least ten MOC's like these ones and each of them are really high quality. Especially the modelling on the roofs and details on the structures and terrain are incredible. His dioramas are full of action and minifigure posing is also very well done. Check out his Flickr galleries to explore more of his amazing works.

Unusual shaped blue colored roof makes this house extraordinary.

Colorful dioramas full of details makes the creations even more exciting. The windmill built in a round shape and beautiful texturing looks great by its own.

Explosion on the wall of Helms Deep by Grant Davis

Flickr member and LEGO Fan Grant Davis a.k.a. Takkata1 shared this amazing diorama built for this years CCC contest depicting the explosion scene from the epic movie The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers (2002). This is one of the most realistic presentation of an explosion I have ever seen so far. The creator did a great job using the reddish back light and the broken wall pieces are very nicely shaped and correctly positioned for the photograph that you don't see the original light source. The detailing on the wall and terrain look also very good.
