Kaplan: We already know you are one of the best LEGO MOC'ers in the world. What can you tell us about yourself other than that. What is your dayjob? Do you have any other hobbies or activities?

Andrew: Well that's a very flattering description, not sure if I quite believe it but thanks! I'm 31 years old and live just outside Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North-East of England. In my day job I work as a telecommunications field engineer for a major telecoms provider. I do quite a bit of travelling daily so I get a chance to see plenty of different styles of building which, of course, helps inspire me to build a variety of styles. When I am not at work I try to keep fit by running. I enjoy watching movies and following my local ex-premier league :( football team.



K: Do you remember the day when you got your first LEGO set? Which set was it? And How old were you when you started playing with LEGO bricks?

A: I think I was around 4 or 5 years old I received two sets at Christmas time, 6522 - Highway Patrol and 6506 - Precinct Cruiser. They were given by a friend of my mother and I apparently loved them so much my own parents followed up with more classic town sets in the years to come.

News: Photos from LEGO DC Super Hero Girls Sets!


Official photos of three sets and their mini-dolls from the new LEGO DC Super Hero Girls theme based on the TV-series with the same name were released recently on the internet. The figures look amazingly colorful and cute. I'm sure that girls will love them but I'm not sure the boys will like them as much as the girls did. Personally I liked the Bat-girl and the Poisson Ivy the most, but honestly I would still prefer the classic mini-figure versions more. If you haven't seen yet check out this new dimensions set with Bat-girl figure in it. Overall the sets are looking great with various recolored pars and new elements. It would be a nice addition to any Friends collection for sure. You may click on the photos to enlarge:
