So far 2018 is a good year for Lego sets. After a mixed 2017 with a lot (probably too much) of hype going on about the Lego Batman- and Ninjago-Movie and not always great sets (like the infamous Bat-Space Shuttle), Lego’s line-up for this year seems to be back on the right track. Speaking of… Read More 2018: Interesting Sets – so far!
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!
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!
Disclaimer: Ok, this is quite a big and complex topic, so bear with me, if I don’t cover every aspect of it wholly. I also added some new information to the text since publishing it yesterday. Strange how things work out sometimes. I was for over a year on and off writing on a post… Read More Hitting the Limits of Growth?
This blog has been terribly quiet for a while and when I started it last year I actually wanted to avoid exactly such times of inactivity. But sadly it happened, thanks to depressing news from America. Just bizarre. I would have never thought that in my lifetime I will see the very foundations of our… Read More Still here!
I really was hoping to keep this blog free from politics, but some things just can’t be left uncommented: After public pressure, the Lego Group wont do any more promotional activities with the Daily Mail, a newspaper blatantly violating any journalistic standards by calling judges of the British high court “enemies of the people”. I really… Read More It’s been time…
The outcry amongst the AFOL community was big when the first pictures of the new UCS Death Star appeared – no surprise: it looked exactly like the old one! Generally you can expect quite a significant progress in design over a time period of 8 years. This applies for Star Wars sets just as it applies… Read More The New Old Death Star
The other day I read a thread on Eurobricks about a guy who bought a number of older Lego Star Wars sets at a yard sale. All still in their boxes. Amongst them was the Ultimate Collector’s Millenium Falcon from 2007. A huge set with over 5000 pieces. He asked how much the set is… Read More Speculating with Lego – What the Hell?
Goodbye to 3-meter-long Titanic models or a brickmade stormtrooper blaster: The new terms and conditions set up by TLG (the almighty “The Lego Group”) explicitly prohibits sets exceeding 3,000 parts and life-sized weapon models – amongst other things. I think you can best describe it as a way to clean up the submissions to leave only the ones with… Read More New Rules for Lego Ideas Submissions
