- Obama used to play with LEGO as a kid. As he described: “I used to build some pretty mean LEGO towers when I was a kid”. You can read more from CNN’s blog here.
- Baby can wear LEGO shoes even if he/she is too young to play with LEGO. Babygadget reports on the LegoTM-inspired Kickers shoes project.
- You can watch the LEGO Battles: Ninjago for Nintendo DS – Trailer from BSCkids, who has also reported on the new Nintendo 3DS Game – LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
- PR Newswire reports on how well TLG is doing in this press release: LEGO Systems Records Over $1.0BN in 2010 U.S. Consumer Sales
- I also liked the stop motion video that shows GeekDad building The LEGO Tower Bridge
- And of course we can count on Grogall to bring us the latest hi-res pics of new sets, this time for Cars 2 and Alien Conquest’s UFO Abduction sets. You can find the pics on Brickset for the Cars 2 sets and on EB’s Alien Conquest thread for the UFO Abduction set.
In case you are curious where I get those info/stuff I’ve been blogging about, I actually Google for news related to LEGO. Out of 20-30 hits, maybe one or two would be considered ‘bloggable’ by me. But then whether I blog about it immediately or not still depends on how I feel that day, or sometimes I’ll keep them aside as ‘back-up’ posts for quiet news days and days when I’m too busy to write.
And of course now and then I feel bad about being deliquent and go back to do a summary like what I am doing now. 😛
I also visit various forums (well, mostly EB for the latest news, and I always click on the threads if I happen to see Grogall do a posting, haha), and as you can see from the RSS feeds on the right, there are various sites that I visit/read. Quite a lot of ‘work’ huh?
What do you think? Are there stuff I’ve summarised today that you would like me to post immediately? Give me some feedback k?
