The 2020 Chinese New Year sets have now been released in Asia Pacific region, I immediately got my hands on it this morning and here is my review on it: THE GOOD: Excellent display piece and 14 minifigures! NO STICKERS! YES I REPEAT, NO STICKERS! So many new and great pieces. Fairly interesting builds and I don't think it's for 8+. More like 12+ in my opinion. There are some very nice touch on replicating the authenticity of chinese new year. Seriously, the price is very fair in terms of what you get from it. THE NOT SO GOOD: Can't find any, if there is one probably some of the builds can be repetitive. Overall, I think this is a 10 out of 10 and Lego has set a very high bar for 2020. And not a single stickers, I wonder if Lego will continue this trend. With 14 minifigures and some of them are exclusive, at the current price it just too good of a deal to pass. Great design, fun build (took me 3.5hrs) and so many new pieces as well. More over, this time is not regional specific and will be widely available globally (Jan 10th for US and Europe I believe). I'd totally recommend this set to anyone.
Parade of Chinese New Year celebrators with their fiery paper dragon. This was my entry on happening category in collaborative town display contest on our LUG Palikkatakomo Ry's exhibit on Model Expo 2016 last weekend. I won the category. As a (partially) Bionicle builder, I wanted to use some Bionicle pieces on my minifig-scale SYSTEM displays in this exhibit, and thus the dragon was born. More on Cyclopic Bricks.
Chu Nail Salon I had been building a single level Oriental Restaurant and was close to finishing when Toorayay posted his Octopus Restaurant http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=97675. Mine wasn't to that high level so I quickly had to come up with an alternative. So, I made some minor changes to the facade, added an additional level, changed the SNOT Lettering, ditched the interior in its entirety and came up with... Chu Nails! Here's details of the SNOT lettering. I wanted something that looked signage on a cheap hotel. There's a combination of right way up and upside down vertical and horizontal connections clipped onto the cattle grid background. Details of the front entrance. I was looking for an abstract Nail display and one of the earlier iterations had nail brushes moving via technic gears and axles and although it functioned it looked too Heath Robinson to remain. The interior. This shows the foot-bath, nail table, overhead lighting and a couple of mirrored tables (stolen from a Friends set) And a view from the other angle showing the waiting room - complete with L shaped sectional sofa, fish tank and potted plant and restroom. And a final shot of Chu Nail's during Chinese New Year Thanks for reading. Comments, criticism and ridicule most welcome!
concuzz posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesHappy Chinese New Year everyone! The challenge here was to create the smallest possible horse with poseable legs, and the simplest way to convey the grace of the traditional Chinese character for horse. More festive creations to come! www.facebook.com/bricksbencreations www.flickr.com/photos/bricksben www.bricksben.com
