    I was searching the web for news articles on LEGO and came across a cool blog at The techniques and examples are so cool I had to give it a try. Here's what I made. It contains 300 1x2's of various colors. I figured it would fall apart the first time I tried to move it but it's surprisingly stable. I was able to pick it up, hold it, and even roll it around and it still hasn't shattered back into 300 pieces. I've seen something similar done alternating 1x2's and round 1x1. Anyone else tried this with any success? The website has a alot of other cool examples of what this guy has done with this technique. ~LCM

    Lego 2x3 Plate Mold

    A friend of this posted it to my facebook wall today and I thought I would share here as I have never seen one before. I even looked thru Gary's CD and didn't find anything like it.
  3. In the interview with the Designers they have stated that Friends is going to be a continuing line. Now that we know that is their plan should friend have it's own forum, a sub forum in city or another forum, or stay as a part of city. I am just curious. Myself, I would like to see it a sub-forum in city. While I enjoy looking at the Friends designs, It really seems to clutter the city forum when I am looking for city themed ideas. I also see the positives in giving Friends it's own Stand Alone Forum. It would be easily found place for specifically Friends related topics and builds and make it easier for new people who join specifically for friends related topics. ~LCM

    Lightning Hardware

    Behing the counter we see a display of tools available, the paint center, and a welding set. You can also get a toilet or a refrigerator at Lightning Hardware. A wide selection of small tools, garbage cans, and even dynamite! Drawers full of screws, nails, and drill bits. A drill press, and some saws inside the front door. and out front the smiling owner Sean with a display of new mowers that just came in.
