“Lego Sneeze” — AuntiePesto
Bricklies is a weekly lego webcomic created by AuntiePesto and hosted by LegoGenre. Updates every Friday.
With the recent releases in the Lego Marvel Superheroes theme, the official Lego X-Men Minifigures are slowly expanding. It seems to be an incredibly slow rate. The only reason we got the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver is because of their appearance in the Avengers. There are so many iconic mutants in the Marvel Universe that most of them will probably never see an official figure. That leaves a great opportunity for custom Minifigs to fill in the roster.
Check out these Uncanny X-Men Minifigures created by agoodfella minifigs. This is the 2nd version of this collection, with new characters, updated appearances, and custom creations adding to the lineup. These feature custom paint, chrome, and even unofficial Minifigs. It all combines to create a roster of X-Men that look amazing.
There are a lot of mutants here. See if you can find Psylocke, Phoenix, Angel, Dark Phoenix, Sunspot, Warpath, Cable, Havok, Sabretooth, Archangel, Gambit, Bishop, X-23, White Queen, Magneto, Juggernaut, Deadpool, Iceman, Beast, Nightcrawler, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Colossus, Shadowcat, Rogue, Mystique, Cyclops, Professor X, and Storm.

This is the Griggs Industries GARC Racer “High & Mighty.” A creation of Genghis Don. It is perfect. The yellow and blue colors create a striking spaceship that looks ready to win the space race. It seats two pilots, and features an uncommon vertical design. But, what really sets this MOC apart from the other Lego Spaceships is the massive amount of stickers and/or decals. This is a racer with a whole lot of sponsors, and they want to be seen.

Looking for something to watch during lunch? Do you have a spare 120 minutes? Then check out Tested Lego with Friends: Veronica Belmont. It is a whole 120 minutes of building Lego sets and chatting about stuff. Then if you happen to have even more time on your hands you can sign up for a Tested Membership and watch an additional 4 episodes with Will, Norm, and Veronica. They start off building a verity of smaller sets, but work their way up to Benny’s Spaceship, a Star Wars AT-AT, and the green Lego Mini.

For the 2015 Star Wars Celebration, held in Anaheim California, Lego created a whole series of Lego Star Wars posters. The posters are all recreations of famous Star Wars posters, except in Lego. The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith are based on the theatrical release posters, while A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are based on the Special Edition release. This collection makes for a great series by avoiding the teaser posters, and the original trilogy theatrical posters. A continuity is presented that just looks awesome. Maybe in the future Lego will revisit this idea and release more Lego Star Wars posters (the original Star Wars poster sure would be appreciated).
These Lego Star Wars posters were given out at the Star Wars Celebration, if you didn’t attend, there are many of these available online at various auction websites (eBay!).

Finding a place for a Lego collection can be a very difficult task. Every year more and more pieces get added, and eventually (for most of us) they end up in a huge unsorted pile. Slowly consuming a spare room, garage, basement, or office space. Most people never get past the point of sorting their collection into a few drawers and storage containers.
Jeffrey Pelletier, an architect, put his knowledge and skills into creating the perfect space for his Lego collection. His whole house has been designed to accommodate Lego. There are well over 250,000 pieces stored in this collection, and most of them are located in what looks like the most friendly basement ever built. With 9 foot ceilings, a full bar, and a whole room dedicated to building, this is the type of space that adults dream about.
The whole house is located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, and was originally built in 1902. After an extensive remodel in 2013, the 3,300 square feet house is a great example of how to showcase your love for Lego. The living space features extensive built-in shelving systems, modern furniture, and super colorful walls. Even the Lego Modular buildings have their own space.
