Lego has always been a place to create your own Mechs. Even Lego has been officially releasing Mechs from at least 1984. Although the official bots are usually simple, the MOCs people have been creating are breaking new ground, in detail and awesomeness. Check out this golden masterpiece, the MFX [F] – Aztech Deity Reborn. It is the third version of the Diety created by Lu Sim. This version features a golden body, with black frame. And, if you look close enough, a little bit of red. The other big change is going with a thinner, more “feminine” type mech. This golden god is just awesome.
It looks like Lego has released another new exclusive set. This time an employee exclusive version of the Lego Kladno Campus 2015 (4000018). Kladno is a city located in the Czech Republic and is home of a huge Lego factory known as the Kladno Campus. For the 15th anniversary of its opening Lego has created an architecture style set for the employees. Because, of the exlusivieness of this set, you can only find it on Ebay or other market place stores. So far going for about $150-200!
Interestingly, Lego recently released an exclusive set based on this factory, the Lego Kladno Campus 2012. It looks like the facility has grown a lot since then.
Star Wars Celebration is making a whole lot of news this week. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the big Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser #2 release, or the Star Wars Battlefront info. Lego has even released a Star Wars Celebration Exclusive set called the Tatooine Mini-Build. It features 178 pieces and 1 C-3PO Minifigure. The set replicates a Moisture Farm (Lars?), a Sandcrawler, a landspeeder, and mini-builds of C-3PO, R2D2, Luke Skywalker (?), and 2 Jawas. The set is pretty charming but there is no attempt at staying in one scale. If you happen to be in Anaheim, and have tickets to the Celebration, make sure to pick up on of these exclusives!

Have you ever tried to read the text on the current Lego Newspaper (4655208)? It is almost illegible but if you squint, you can maybe make out 90% of it. Reddit user PeterM76 wrote to Lego and got an official response, revealing the full text. Check it out:
“The greatest LEGO hero ever!
The LEGO news interviewed the hero after helping the old man. It was a quiet afternoon in the LEGO City. The minifigure hero walked through the streets and heard the old man shouting for help. Like every other minifigure the old man tried to protect the world against evil. He just forgot that he was old and not that fast anymore. After running through many streets the evil monster of the universe captured the old man and lifted him up in a tree. The LEGO hero ran when he heard the shouting, captured the villain and saved the old man in the tree. He only had one comment “I will do whatever it takes to save minifigures” ” Journalist: Annemette”
Game of Thrones is back on TV and that means a whole lot of intrigue and trickery is afoot. Legoagogo has taken his fandom of Game of Thrones and Lego to create a whole series of photos and vignettes. So far they have created Minifigures for the Hound, Arya Stark, Brienne, Jaime Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Stannis, Davos, Melisandre, Theon Greyjoy, Ramsay Bolton, Jon Snow, Ygritte, Hodor, and Bran Stark. This small selection of the possible characters just happens to represent some of Legoagogo’s favorites.
The little vignettes have all been photographed extremely well. They are all instantly recognizable. Check out Ramsay Bolton getting ready to eat some Lego sausage.
And, if you happened to catch the most recent episode then this scene (or something similar) will be fresh in your mind. That Red Witch sure knows how to build a fire.
Just in time for the season premiere of Game of Thrones, Guy Himber, has created King Joffrey, Long May He Reign. This television shows most infamous villain is looking appropriately evil. Some of these Lego pieces have been put to novel use. Check out the Minifigure arms, used for fingers. And, it even looks like the One Ring is adorning the top of the crown. Even in Lego you still want to slap Joffrey across his smug face.
