  1. LEGOLAND pretty much always says that they use all the same parts selections available in LEGO sets and that any kid would have so that you could possibly "recreate" what you see in LEGOLAND parks. And don't make custom pieces for themselves to be true to LEGO. I've been to the model shop in LLM and found out that they have 1x2 jumper plates in transclear, which by my research has never been released in a set or made known in public. I'm pretty sure that's not the only part they're keeping to themselves. But my question is, why does LEGOLAND say that the parts they use are completely same to what other people would have? Is LEGOLAND lying to us all?

  3. My family was recently going through the basement and discovered this Lego plastic shopping bag. At first it didn't seem interesting, but we don't live near a lego store (Eastern Canada) and this had been stored away for about 30 years. I can't find anything similar online, but I'd like to know more about it. Has anyone ever seen a shopping bag like this before? My best guess is that it came from France in the mid to late 1980's, I recall Santa bringing a lot of Duplo from France one year. If it helps, this logo is on the bottom of the bag. Thanks!

    Lego 1593 Discussion

    I am posting my review of the unloved Lego 1593 in hopes of generating a discussion/debate about the merits (or lack thereof) of this set. Please post your comments. There is no wrong side to take. Nobody's Favorite But Mine I previously reviewed this set and now my feelings about it have solidified, as if I added fiber to my diet. I know it is a bizarre and ungainly craft, but it looks awesome sitting next to the 6842 aka Small Space Shuttle Craft aka Inspection Spacecraft (I thought it was Shuttle Craft) and the 6929 aka Starfleet Voyager aka Starfleet Voyager. Is anyone else confused by the Lego Group's naming conventions across multiple languages? In this case, they decided it was easier not to name it at all, but I digress. I enclosed the gaps in the upper cockpit with trans dark blue 1x4 bricks, which makes a world of difference. The 1593 is no weirder than other sets (I'm talking to you, Robot Command Center) and the play value is high based on the docking rover and the previously mentioned (in another review) "space age washing machine". The set works decently if you compare it to its donor sets from 1981 and 1982, instead of to its actual contemporary, the mighty 6980 Galaxy Commander (the pinnacle of Lego technology in 1983). Although routinely critiqued as the worst possible combination of its component parts, I respectfully disagree, as you will soon see below, and argue that the 1593 is a underrated gem two years in the making. The fact that large quantities of alcohol and/or the future designers of the Pontiac Aztek were likely involved is beside the point. So is the fact that the Classic Space line had moved past its color scheme, leaving it trapped in 1981. Or the fact that it is ugly. I didn't know this set existed when I was a kid, but am confident I would have loved it. What does that say about me? I enjoyed piecing it together from spare parts, but I decided I wanted the original directions, so I paid too much for a complete set, minus the box, unfortunately. All of the bad reviews from the web, to include this site, have given the 1593 a massive inferiority complex and incredibly low self esteem, so I intend to do something about it. Think about how you would feel if you were constantly being told you were the worst person in the world...ever. Imagine if you were a movie worse than Time Bandits (That "Time Bandits" set that was ranked higher, I mean less low, than this one in another review looks atrocious, by the way. I think he meant the Time Cruisers Time Tunnelator, but Time Bandits was a terrible movie, strengthening my analogy). Imagine if the only way to identify you was with a few numbers, like a prison inmate because your parents didn't care enough to name you (The Persil literature described the 1593 as "Delta Spacecraft with Survey Vehicle..." which sounds very Legoland Classic Spacey, but didn't stick). Or if you were advertised on the back of a laundry detergent box for L9.95 (About $13.00 in U.S currency) when the Starfleet Voyager went for $15.00. Imagine if you were "only available in Europe" (Canada too??) and never given a chance to travel to one of the largest Lego markets in the world and that the members of that market didn't even know about you until relatively recently. Does this sound like a pleasant existence? Welcome to the 1593’s world… To help heal my set’s wounded psyche and enable it to realize that it is beautiful on the inside, I am going to use my extra parts to create a variation of this alternate build: Now that is hideous. I love it. Uh-oh, here we go again... For those of you who bash the 1593, I’m not saying you are wrong, but go build something! That is the beauty of Lego, if you don't like it, make it into something you do like. I propose the below picture as one option to remedy your heartburn with this set. (Again, the digestive system analogies). At the risk of offending some readers, an even more obvious solution is not to buy the set in the first place if you feel negatively about it. For the 1 to 2 other people out there, aside from me, who love this set, the best way to describe it is "business in the front, party in the back". As such, I humbly complete my review of the Legoland 1593 Space Mullet. Now it has a proper name.
  15. Hello, I'm making this post to seek evaluation from people who love LEGO or have young children who love LEGO and this seemed like the best place to get accurate and reliable feedback. I have designed a phone case (for the IPhone 6) with the interest of creating further interaction with the LEGO land park; basically the idea of having people go through the park searching for puzzles with their camera through the use of an app, then completing the puzzle by creating a and image on the back of the case using 1x1 flat tiles and showing them to scanners situated all over the park, this would increase consumer flow throughout the park and create a fun challenge for parents and kids alike. (the product would still be expected to be used as a general phone case and would provide fun in a normal day as it provides a very versatile build platform to create from) I know there are some issues with the alignment of the LEGO studs and the Technic pin holes, but this product is still in a prototyping phase so this is understandable. If you have any comments or questions regarding anything to do with the design. (it's aesthetics, manufacture, safety, function. etc). please make a comment below as ANY contributions would be greatly appreciated.

  17. I love architecture skyline sets, but was not sure what do do with them. They obviously are not the right scale to put them in the city. We just finished having a lego fair in our city and so I thought, wouldn't be cool to build a more permanent amusement park rather than just a fair and base it off the Legoland themeparks! And here we are. Nearing completion on the park. We still have a lot of detail to add, vendors, all the mini fig visitors and workers, the main entrance, parking lot and drop off area and a station for the mono rail ride. But it's coming together and should turn out pretty nice I think.
  18. For the opening of Legoland in 2015 I was asked to make a display model of the main entrance. This was displayed in the lobby of the hotel so that visitors entering from there could see what the other entrance looks like. It's a huge model, so here are some close-ups of the details: There are a couple of large dinosaurs near the flag sculpture. The corners of the bricks of the real models have been smoothed out so that children do not hurt themselves when they climb on top of it: I was unfortunately not able to get a 2x2 tile with the LEGO logo. It could have completed the large sculpture at the entrance: The entrance welcomes in Danish, German and English: There is an ATM next to the information counters: On the left you find the ticket shops. I had also made one in yellow and one in green, but there wasn't enough space: On the right there is a sculpture with clown inside of the flower arrangement: The marching band on top of the entrance: The complete model: I am not aware of the current whereabouts of this model. I hope it is on display somewhere. Brickshelf gallery with more pictures: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=550524
  19. I watched a bunch of nice HD YouTube videos of a guy in Japan giving tours of the Odaiba Lego Store and LEGOLAND. There was a room with a city layout with a giant Tokyo Tower and a giant Tokyo Skytree and various other landmark buildings like the Fuji TV building, Tokyo Station. Does Lego ever make available instructions and parts lists for these showcase creations? One day I would like to build one of these landmarks in mini figure scale. Even a smaller scale Tokyo Tower would be nice if I could find instructions and parts lists.
  20. First, I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this topic, but I think that someone from the Lego group should see this. I understand that Legoland parks are not managed by Lego any more, however since they represent the Lego brand there should at least be some oversight on how this is done. Here is my family's experience with Legoland California: - First visit was in summer of 2008 - it was great, everything that my then 4 year old daughter, my wife and I expected and more! Specifically to Miniland, all exhibits were working, trains were going back and forth (the one around the farm, two monorails in Las Vegas and I think one more), some of the cars were going around the roads in various cities, but some were already broken, as you could clearly see thread marks on the road where they used to go. Being that this was 8-9 years after opening, you could see some of weathering on the buildings and exhibits, which is expected, I suppose. - Second visit was in September/October 2014 - great experience, especially on the first day (Thursday) - no lines on almost any of the rides, we felt like we had the park for ourselves! Then the weekend came and things started getting crowded... but I digress: Miniland - now this is almost 15 years since the opening and 6 years since our last visit, and it looks like nothing was done in the meantime. None of the trains worked, to the disappointment of my 2-year old son who simply adores trains. There was 1 car moving in New York City model, another one in Washington DC, and that was it. There were some boats that were moving, but most were not, since the cables to which they are attached have fallen off the pulleys. You could see some additions, like a brand new firetruck in otherwise weathered New Orleans, and San Francisco display slowly taking shape, but otherwise everything else was just 6 years older and not very well cared about in my opinion. - Third visit was in December 2014 (yes, we bought three memberships for $200 a pop for the three of us, since our son is still younger than 3yr), we actually just came back home tonight and I had to write this and post it - it was crazy, I have never seen so many people in Legoland, which on one hand is good for the revenue but it's terrible if you happen to be there on those days, the lines were 60-90 minutes long on most of the rides. So instead of waiting in line, we went to Miniland. On the bright side, San Francisco model was completed, and it looks great! Unfortunately the street cars are not moving, even though there are rails for them. Also, some of the boats were repaired, as someone finally put the cable back on the pulley. The rest of the Miniland was in a really sad state: there were one or two cars moving in one of the exhibits, no trains were moving (even though the train around the farm exhibit was replaced with a "Christmas train", no one bothered to fix the engine I guess), no cars in Manhattan were moving, the lacquer cover on the MGM hotel in Las Vegas model was peeling off from the side and flailing in the breeze like a tatter from a ghost ship mast, the Santa with reindeer model was sadly sagging from one of the New York skyscrapers, unlike the witches that were spinning around during our previous visit and that everyone was pointing at. A section of the roof of the Sydney Opera caved in. All in all, it was fairly disappointing experience. So there you have it. We are planning to go again sometimes in March (we live ~350 miles away in Phoenix), and I hope that at least some of the things we saw will be repaired. After all, the sign at the entry to the Miniland says that it's the "Heart of Legoland" so I think that it should be kept in a better shape than it is now. You can go to so many other amusement parks for a ride on a roller coaster, to a water park or aquarium, but the Miniland is what should be a really unique experience that sets Legoland apart from so many other amusement parks in southern California, or for that matter Worldwide!
  21. Sorry if this has already been posted, but found this to be a really interesting look at how they create the models for Legoland.
  22. So, this was very welcome news to me, but I heard this morning on the local radio that the Lego Company Inc. has bought numerous plots of land in an area off the interstate in Goshen, NY. There was a statement that Lego plans to join New York's slew of theme parks to compete with New Jersey tourism by opening a new Legoland here, the third one in the US. There are no Lego Shops in upstate New York (though we have four in NYC), so this is a very welcome attraction. So, what do you guys think? Is this welcome news to any members stateside? Update: I cannot hide my sheer excitement....reports have it that they are in early stages of development here, but hope to open by the summer of 2019.

    VIDEO: Legoland Train (40166)

    Hello, the Legoland Train (40166) reminds me of the 70s, I guess, because of the colours. This is my review: It is availabe in every Legoland. Best wishes Andres
  24. My wife and I went to LEGOland CA yesterday (the day after BTTF day) to see what they did for Halloween. We usually go at least four times per year, October to see what they did for Halloween, December to see what they did for Christmas and a couple of times in the Winter and Spring (avoiding the hottest of Summer) I took a few photos and videos (with my GoPro, which I will publish after editing). Anyway, here are the photos and some things we liked. First we went to Miniland (a favorite of ours). First we noticed that they removed the farm area and replaced it with a campground and a “Build a Boat” area. In the campground they had a couple of Halloween themed scenes, the first I noticed was a troupe of Boy Scouts whose campground is being attacked by a giant spider. Boy Scouts by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr The next, not Halloween themed but just a nice family outing with an RV and a Turkey on the grill. It seems to me that folks who “camp” with an RV take a lot more of home with them, such as the baby stroller (in the rough), the grill, and the golf cart for getting around... Wow, that’s really roughing it! RV Camping by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Next to the RV area is a group of Porta Potties (outhouses) which a mischievous bear is trying to overturn and a guy inside screaming “OCCUPIED” as if the bear understands. Porta Potty by MyPlasticBricks, on Flick Towards the end of the campground is an area for rock climbing. It seems that this guy has found some friendly mountain goats to help him out. Rock Climbing by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Across the river as part of the view for the Coast Cruise ride is a scientist trying to bring his creation to life using jumper cables, maybe to be attached to the solar light fixture on the ground. Frankenstein by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Something I think was a good use of some of the MiniLand space is the “Build a Boat” and boat race area. There they loan kids a boat hull and LEGO pieces to build a boat then have it race down the flue. Build a Boat by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Something I always look for in the Halloween decorations is the Alien ship crash landed just outside Las Vegas. I don’t remember 2 shops last year (maybe there was) but they have 2 flying saucers, one crashed, one just landed, supposedly to help their crashed friends. Alien Invasion by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Over at the New Orleans area, they have a “Jazz Funeral”. This year there is a zombie procession. Not sure why a zombie procession at a cemetery. Why would the “undead” be in a funeral procession? I included a couple of photos just in case someone want to see how to build a MiniLand Zombie. Zombies Jazz Funeral by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Zombies More Zombies by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Time for lunch! We decided to try the “Knights Smokehouse”. It was great! The food compares favorably with the smokehouse down town here (Lucilles BBQ), and the brisket was more tender and flavorful. The restaurant appear to be guarded by a friendly dragon. One thing I found odd... A smokehouse in the Castle area for Knights playing Country and Western music (I notice the oddest things, my wife hadn’t noticed the disconnect). Just little off theme for a Knights dining area, but the music was at a good volume and there was a good choice for songs. Knights Smokehouse by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Then back to Miniland to finish Washington DC and VA area. In Georgetown there were kids (Miniland figures) Trick-or-Treating.I always enjoy seeing the Trick-or-Treat area in Georgetown. Bonus points if you can identify the big green Trick-or-Treater. I think the guy (prisoner) with his leg stretched from the Ball-and Chain is quite humorous. Trick-or-Treating in Georgetown by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Then there is the party next to the Georgetown locks. Party by Georgetown Locks by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Something I always look for is the witch on the Washington Mounment. It appears that she is walking along a ledge, but I think she went **Splat** and is trying to recover. Witch on Washington Monument close-up by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Overview of Washington Monument Witch on Washington Monument by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr Next it was time to go to “Fun Town” to see what was in the PaB area. They did some nice theming here. Two that I noticed was the big spider above the Laundrette (next to the Clubhouse (where the PaB area is) and a church a little ways down. The PaB area was nice (for me) today, they had green plant stems, white door and window frames, and some white 2x3 slopes, perfect for my Christmas layout, and a few other pieces I could not live without. I got out of there only spending $45. Spider above the Laundrette by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr And the Church in Fun town Spider on the Church by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr It was now about 1:30 PM, time for us to leave to “try” to avoid the traffic for our 2 hour drive home. On our way out I noticed a great spider web with a spider hanging down. Upside-Down spider by MyPlasticBricks, on Flickr I know I missed some things here, I didn’t see it all, I just did not have the time. We had a great day! But our normally less than 2 hour trip home wound up being close to 3.5 hours... Wow the traffic! But it was our only chance to get to LEGOland for Halloween this year. I hope you enjoyed the photos.

    LEGOLAND Penny Presses

    I found one from 15 years ago for Castle Hill in LEGOLAND CA: Does anyone else have some they could share?
