Its experiment time! In my quest to find out the best setting for Lego photography (at least as far as my equipment allows), I set up two scenes which cover most of what I am doing. My special thanks hereby to Leyland Brickston for providing his Airship for the shooting. The Experiment: a close-up Minifigure… Read More Photography: Experimenting with ISO- and f-Values
So, lets talk about – plans! There will be a significant increase in display space here at Littleworlds HQ in the (relatively) near future in the shape of some dedicated display-shelves. My plan is to have little scenes built on each level. Some will change, others, like my modulars will get a permanent spot, but… Read More Plans and Photography!
What do you do when you have too many old white bricks, that have yellowed to a point where they are really more tan like white? Yes, of course you could use hydrogen peroxide to whiten them again… but apart from that, if you don’t really want all the hassle? Build something that looks suitingly… Read More Oldschool MOC: Ulf’s Garage
Sometimes you find a set that just says loud and clear YES! to you. And if you look at the price tag, the YES! gets even a little bit louder. The Ninjago City Chase is one of these sets. It proves the point that a good, if not excellent, set doesn’t needs to cost 70+… Read More Review: Ninjago City Chase (70607)
Some sets I only buy because of certain pieces. Like this one. It contains two so-called “Vermillion Warriors” (hence the name of the set) and some really cool pieces of armour. The rest? Never mind really. I didn’t even bother to keep this set assembled for taking photos. The two Vermillion Warrior Minifigures are really… Read More Not Quite a Review: The Vermillion Attack (70621)
If you are a regular reader of my blog, and of my reviews in particular, you might have noticed that I abolished the numeric score in my reviews. Whilst I found it a good idea when I started writing them (quite a number of moons ago already – how time flies!), but now it feels… Read More Reviewing and Stuff!
Starter sets are a typical gateway drug. Ideally they represent the very essence of the theme and offer an instant and quite appealing, low-price access to it. And – ideally for Lego – making you crave for more. This year above ideal has been very much reached if you ask me. Quite easily actually. You… Read More Review: Jungle Starter Set (60157)
Lets start off the new year with some MOC-content. More to follow in the coming weeks! This cute little car is inspired by the 2014 polybag Mini Cooper. A nearly perfect set in its own right, if it just would have room for a Minifigure driver! I fixed this flaw by replacing the windscreen with the… Read More Mini Mini
And while we are at it: Merry Christmas as well! I hope you all got through the festive season without having to buy your clothes a size bigger! For ourselves, things just settled down from coming back from our Christmas-holiday. Over the last few weeks, quite a pile of Lego has built up here at… Read More Happy New Year!
In my review of the Y-Wing recently, I criticised the rather lacklustre gun that came for the Moroff-Minifigure. In Rogue One he wields something that looks like a small laser-minigun. In his Lego incarnation though, it was nothing more than a pistol with a technic-pin attached to it – and that only very loosely fitting… Read More Moroff needs a bigger Gun (seriously!)
