Some LEGO News Round-Up

Some news that caught my eye the past 2 days. 

1. How to Unglue Your Glued Magnets

Via Cygnet from The Ugly Duckling, I found out about Akunthita‘s efforts to find the solution around glued magnets.  You really have to read the full article on thebrickblogger and the full range of experiments she conducted to find the solution.  Plus the great pictorial guide on how to unglue the magnets of course.  

2. Changes to Instruction Booklet & Sticker Packaging

Via Josh from The Brothers Brick, I found out about better packaging for stickers and instructions for sets with more than 1000 pieces.  News about this change has been coming from overseas AFOLs about instructions being packed with a hard cardboard in a sealed plastic sleeve and this officially confirms the change.

3. New Sets and Set Instruction Manuals Uploaded

Via Huw & Grahame from Brickset, I found out about the newly released set 10155 Maersk Container Ship and that loads of new instructions are now on including 3 new polybag sets.

      Thanks Delta. Nope didn’t mention it and thanks for the links.
      I’m finding it too painful to read the instructions and not have the set on hand to build so am going to wait for my set to arrive before reading and most importantly, building/playing. 🙂
      Do you have yours already?

    I know some SG AFOL would be happy to know about this de-gluing process =)

    I bet we’d find there are a lot more gals in the LEGO world than we realize; we just assume they’re all guys. 😉

      There seems to be an increase in Singapore AFFOLs, not sure if that’s a worldwide trend. But I think we are still very much in the minority…

      Thanks for reading my blog Katie and I love your stained glasses btw. 😉
