(Written by William) I should start out by saying that this Brick Breakdown segment is going to be a bit different from previous ones. As the LEGO BrickHeadz series uses very similar building techniques in all of the sets, I thought it made more sense to write about the entire series, instead of each separate […]

Tim’s focus is on taking a look at new LEGO elements (thus the blog’s name) released by the LEGO Group, and analyze their shapes, colors, angles, connection-points, interaction and compatibility with other pieces, etc. Tim’s […]

One of my favorite LEGO builders is Tyler Clites (a.k.a. Legohaulic). Tyler is particularly well known for his very expressive brick-built LEGO characters and beautiful spaceships (see his flickr gallery).
