zipbin falcon

Derivatives and Star Wars, it's a very long love story and Georges Lucas holds the candle (and collects the cash).

Here is the latest product offered by the company ZipBin®, specialist in storage for LEGO parts, decorated like Christmas trees, but which after all can be very useful. It's a Millennium Falcon with plenty of slots to store your minifigs and interior silkscreen printing vaguely reminiscent of the ship itself. The exterior is successful and is clearly inspired by the set 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon.

If you want to offer yourself this product, you will have to choose to go through eBay, or wait for it to be eventually available in France in a toy store. In the meantime you can still buy two other models from the Star Wars range at Amazon: Toy Box Playset  et Battlebridge.

custom ctiler 2

During my travels on flickr looking for some good MOC or custom, I came across the flickr gallery of a certain CAB & Tiler (I think I know who it is ...) which offers some pictures of two interesting and well photographed mini-MOCs.

Here we are entitled to a well-designed custom STAP (or Single Trooper Aerial Platform), even if we must admit that LEGO has already saturated us with different versions for a few years.

Otherwise, CAB & Tiler offers its version of the Rocket Droids with original jetpacks in the choice of parts. The close-up photo below will allow you to discover in detail the assembly carried out.

I'm not sure why, but I urge you to put this gallery in your favorites, beautiful things could see the light of day soon ......

This is the excellent TheBrickBlogger which gives the information: A new version of the brick separator will be delivered with the set 10230 Mini Modulars and should be available separately afterwards.

On the menu of changes, an axis Technic which will allow the extraction of the stuck LEGO axes. The handle of this new brick separator has also been refined to allow the removal of tiles without any particular effort. Under the divider, the design has been changed in order to be able to remove the Jumper Plates (flat 1x2 with a central stud), something that the old model could not do.

In short, that's good, but we'll have to wait a little longer to stop breaking our nails on parts that are too well assembled ....

ideas book

Another work, written by Daniel Lipkowitz, offered by editions DK Publishing and which promises to be interesting for those like me who do not necessarily have the MOC-attitude ....

Basically, this book offers us more than 500 alternative models, construction techniques and original ideas of models to build. The best MOC specialists will not necessarily be interested in this book, which is undoubtedly a little too simplistic and didactic. But a compulsive AFOL must have all the books that touch on the passion for LEGO .....

So if you feel like it, you can order here ou here this book apparently well illustrated and in English.
