(Written by ninja5) I’ve been thinking that since I wrote an article on LEGO mecha (see: Building LEGO Mechs – The Basics), I should write one on LEGO spaceships too, as they are very popular in the LEGO hobby. I hope you find it helpful! Building a basic LEGO spaceships is not that difficult, and […]

LEGO sets often come with various decorations; sometimes these are printed right on the elements, and other times they are stickers that you need to apply.

LEGO Hero Factory minifigs are awesome!
