We haven’t talked about LEGO Friends for a while, so I think it is time for a little update. According to reports and comments by the LEGO Company, the LEGO Friends line is alive and well and here to stay for the long term. In fact, besides LEGO Friends being a favorite with little girls, even older – and male - builders are incorporating the lovely new LEGO Friends colors and cute minifigs into their creations. Today I will highlight a few that caught my attention and are worthy of mention.
LEGO Super Friends by Joel Midgley is a mix of the LEGO Friends and superheroes theme. Besides the action, don’t miss those lovely new Friends colors incorporated into the town-houses. Joel says: ‘This is my first LEGO town build in a long time. Super Friends is a happy assortment of costumed Friends out to save Heartlake City from the combined forces of the DC and Marvel Universe villains. Friends make great superheroes, and even better hostages. The way they hold their arms straight up like that is quite impressive.” Check out Joel’s Flickr Gallery for more pictures.
LEGO Friends Painted Ladies District by Hoexbroe is inspired by the Victorian houses in San Francisco. You can spend quite a bit of time feasting your eyes on the nice color combinations and details. And of course our LEGO Friends are there playing and driving cool cars! Hoexbroe is in fact planning to build a whole town. This is just a tiny corner of it! Check out more pictures and the town-layout at Eurobricks.
The LEGO Friends Tree House by Cale Leiphart is an expansion of the #3065 LEGO Friends Olivia’s Tree House set. Cale’s local LEGO Group challenged its members to build LEGO Friends themed creations. Cale says: ”I only had Olivia’s Tree House and Emma’s Fashion Design Studio at the time so my Friends part resources were pretty small. I decided to run with the tree-house theme and expand on it adding elements from both sets and a healthy dose of my landscaping knowledge. I think I’m reasonably happy with the results.” And Cale is certainly a landscaper! Just look at those trees! Check out Cale’s Flickr Gallery for more pictures.
LEGO Friends Olivia’s Bedroom by Ben Pillen is also an expansion of an original LEGO Friends set, giving Olivia a nicer and bigger bedroom than in the #3315 LEGO Friends Olivia’s House set. The furniture, the door, the floor-tiling are all full of great building techniques and nice color-combinations. Check out Ben’s Flickr Gallery for more pictures.
