Swiss Ghostbusters got their hands on the upcoming Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827) a few weeks early. The new set will be released in January 2016, at $350. They put together an extremely slick build and review video. This thing is huge.
“We are proud to present to you, just four weeks before the official launch, the official “Lego Ghostbusters Firestation Headquarter Set 75827 .” We want to share this joy with you and have made this short video review for you. In it you will see the building process of the set in a timelapse and a small review of the features of the Ghostbusters headquarters.
The pure building phase would take about 10-12 hours. We had a lot of fun building this great set and we especially recommend it to any Ghostbusters fan.”
Lego Minifigures Series 14 is still on shelves, the Halloween theme is a tough(er) sell after October. The good news is that Series 15 (71011) is on its way. With a January 2016 release date the first official images have started to appear online. This time they are going with an eye-popping orange color scheme. Lego is also sticking to the (slightly expensive) $3.99 price point.
This time the sixteen Minifigs include: a golden Winged Warrior, an Animal Control Officer & Skunk, a Robot, a Janitor, a Jewel Thief, a Farmer & Pig, an Astronaut, a Black Knight, a Faun/Satyr, a Happy (Left) Shark, a Queen, a Wrestler, a Dancer, a Native American Mother, a Kendoka, and wounded Clumsy Man.
Winter is here, which means peaceful white landscapes, bitter cold, and a lot of hard work shoveling. Hornet Razvan has created a charming Lego Microscale Winter Vignette. An iconic red building is the center piece, but the giant clouds and snow Lego built background is what makes this stand out. There are even some extremely tiny cars trying to drive, and two little snowplows keeping the roads safe.
It sounds like an official Lego Ghostbusters Headquarters (75827) will be released in 2016! Over on YouTube, just2good released this scoop (here). The upcoming set will be impressive. The Firehouse will contain well over 4,000 pieces and cost somewhere near $350. This puts it in the same category as the Deathstar or the recent Avengers Helicarrier in terms of scope. The whole thing should open up, and be relatively modular. It will be interesting to see if it can fit in with the ever popular Modular Buildings theme. Good news, even though the release is 2016, the wait won’t be too long. The Headquarters should be released on January 1st, 2016.
The image above is the super popular Lego Ideas Ghostbusters HQ that was not approved (here). The first images of this new set should be appearing soon.
It has finally happened, the new Lego Ideas #010 set The Big Bang Theory (21302) has been released. If you made it to San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) this year, you were able to get your hands on the new set a few weeks early. As for the rest of the world, we will need to wait until August 1st. The whole thing is made up of 479 pieces and will be priced at $€59.99. This is not a cheap set, and the price per piece is high.
Brickset has posted one of the first reviews of this set (here). The review is full of high resolution photos, and walks you through the basic build process. It is also sprinkled with comments from Alice, who just happens to be a fan of The Big Bang Theory. Make sure to read the whole review!
“I think it’s a great set for TBBT fans that are not already LEGO fans because even I, who hasn’t played with LEGO for 10 years, wanted to build it just so I could recreate the set.…”
The Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel is extremely charming and popular. This Lego MOC is amazingly difficult to find, but a few more photos of this modular hotel have surfaced. The Lovely Hotel made its first appearance at the Fujiyama Lego Camp ’12. This pink and purple Cafe Corner mod was displayed between the other town and train creations. This is a total conversion of the famous Cafe Corner (10182), replacing everything with Friends inspired details. This creation would fit in perfectly in any Heartlake City display, and would be at home in a Modular Building layout.
When entering the Hotels front entrance an Ice Cream parlor can be found on the first floor. Here the Lego Friends can chill out and watch the coming and goings of the crowded streets outside. The entrance into the building can be found on the right side of the building. The first two rooms occupy the second floor, accessible from the narrow staircase. Each room features a stylish bed, and vanity. On the top floor is the penthouse suite. This room is jam packed with a full bathroom, bed, vanity, telephone, chandelier, and even custom curtains.

There is an almost endless list of historical important buildings that could go through the Lego Architecture system. A lot of people are inspired by these landmarks and the Architecture theme; then go and build their own. Markus created an awesome MOC based on the Santa Maria della Salute in Venice Italy. A baroque style Roman Catholic church with an iconic dome. Considering its scale, this Lego Santa Maria della Salute is about as accurate as you can get to the real thing. Markus even won a nomination from the recent Brickworld 2015 for Best Small Building.
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”
There are many iconic locations from the TV show Arrested Development, but none are as famous as the Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana Stand. This great little MOC features some extremely nice custom stickers. The SNOT building used to get the shape of the Banana Stand is amazingly complicated. And, best of all there looks to be enough room for a George Michael or Maeby Fünke. The tight space will certainly create some awkward situations. This thing is so accurate that I have a feeling there might even be Lego money lining the walls of the Banana Stand.
A new Lego set is coming just in time for Valentines Day. This new set is a couple of Minifigures having a romantic dinner. But before dinner is served a surprise marriage proposal takes place. This is an interesting set as it can serve two purposes. First, it is a pretty sweet Valentines Day set. Second, it is a romantic engagement set. A sort of companion to the Lego Wedding Set (853340). This little vignette comes with some fun Lego pieces too, the heart gem, pink cupcake piece, and even two fezzes. To top it all off there are two extremely happy Lego Minifigs.
