Japanese Red Idea Book

I brought the Japanese Red Idea book to a local Lego club meet-up and quite a few members were thrilled with the pictures/MOCs in the book. 

As promised, here are some of the favourite pages from the book.  Enjoy! 🙂 (apologies for the lousy photo taking tho!)

Details of the book and link to Amazon Japan can be found here: List of Lego books I like

Tower Palace II

Came across this great castle with landscaping (assisted by 7 year old Sara!) and full interiors (hall, throne room, dining room, kitchen, maps room, tower and staircases) by José Proença – ztp.  Click on pics below for more pics of the land scaping (exterior pic) and interior shots (interior pic) on Flickr.


2010 Advent Calendars

New hi-res pics of 2010 City and Kingdoms Advent Calendars are now available!  Sadly, new sets now have fewer minifigs than previous years but I’m sure the prices have not gone down as well. 😦

Click on pics for hi-res versions:

Your thoughts on the new calendars? How many will you get?
