    Mainly I like LEGO. I have a LEGO city that is currently still growing and I enjoy the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit theme. Apart from that I was a fan of the 2004 Arctic Alpha Team. I have enjoyed building sets for the Official Set made in LDD topic, as it is a great way to see sets before buying them.

    LEGO Creator 2021 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    It looks like a combination of a printed orange 1x2 cheese slope (85984) and an orange concave 1x3 bow (70681) paired with a black inverted 1×2 bow (24201). It's really quite a clever solution!

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    It is! You can zoom in on the additional pictures under the set pages. I just happened to find an image that displayed the squirrel quite clearly.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    The new squirrel mould appears in dark orange in 60330 (and also the upcoming school by the looks of the additional images). - via LEGO's instructions app.

    40516 Everyone Is Awesome

    As an AFOL who identifies as queer, ever since I was introduced to the concept of monochrome minifigures I've wanted to create a rainbow pride flag with them. This set does exactly that and uses the progressive pride flag which adds black, brown and trans colors for a more inclusive symbol, which I really appreciate. It was fun to watch Matthew Ashton unveil this set 2x3 by 2x3 brick at a time (I was so confused with the first few bricks - the set leak was what finally made it click) and would not have dreamed of LEGO acknowledging LGBTQIA identities in an actual LEGO set rather than tangential way such as previous separate wedding BrickHeadz or Billy Porter in Rebuild the World. It may be a rather simple set design wise, but I think it makes for a classy statement piece. Plus as a person who has done drag, I enjoyed his nod to drag queens with the purple beehive wig! I consider the use of bright green and light royal blue instead of dark green and medium blue a nice bonus, especially since we got a few parts in new colors as a result (in addition to recolored medium lilac and dark purple bricks). And while most of the monofig colors included are available without part modification (unprinted light royal blue excluded), it is nice to get them fully assembled without needing to switch arms, legs, or hands and possibly damage the torso or hips.
