    Pirate Featurette

    I build sites for a living and first time anyone has found it hard to navigate , all the featurette posts can be found under http://brickfanatics.co.uk/category/news/featurette/ in order as well. I try to keep categories simple, so if it's shopping news it's under shopping. if its new products it's under new products. if its a featurette then it's under featurette on the drop down. However I am always open to suggestion........

  10. I am in the UK and it's not something that really appeals to me. Would love a Red double decker bus as a City set though.

    Funny/embarrassing moments

    Beat this one for embarrassing and painful and it happened this year. I was drilling some holes for a new desk and slipped with the drill and it ended up embeded into my never regions, then the paramedic happened to be a pretty female who had the task of cutting my jeans and boxer shorts away to see the extent of the damage. I ended with stitches and a very painful lower region for a while, it could have been worse they told me as the jeans slowed the drill piece down and reduced the damage done.

    What's in a name ???

    I used to run a site called BricksandBooks and I wanted a LEGO friendly name so shortened it to Bricksan. I have in the past used RJH, Richazey, Parkstee and Rincewind to name but a few.

    Legends of Chima 2013

    It has and a LEGO Rep has already asked people not to post links to confidential images already in this topic.....
  17. I understand now, the way the comment above came across was the actually project was by someone fake.
  18. I was thinking the same given that the project is also listed on his own official site

    Lego City Project - Update Oct 2012

    Thanks. The plan is to have an entire city scene from the sea into the mountains/forest. Since I too those photos, the sea has been redone as i mentioned but also expanded. I am currently building the second floor of the coastguardHQ. This weekend I have redecorate my office and tomorrow I am off to pick up some new wood to build the new area the City scene will be on as right now it's in parts in various rooms while the paint dries.

    Should Friends have it's own Sub-Forum?

    I would prefer it to have it's own dedicated forum. One is it deserves it as the theme is here to stay and very popular and two it's annoying seeing old the Friends topics mixed with Town/City topics.
  23. There is a new store set hitting the shelves called 850449: CMF Beach Set. The set comes with 63 pieces and includes 3 CMF minifigures, the male surfer from series 2, the female surfer from series 4 and the hula dancer from series 3. The set will be prices at £9.99 in the UK and $15 in the US. Image from Jenni on Brickset forum.
