Hi Admins!
I work at Laser Pegs. I see your site is very resourceful and you talk about several different “construction blocks” brands. Have you had any experience with Laser Pegs? We’ve come a long way in 8 years and would love for you to check our products out.
From officially licensed National Geographic kits, to Major League Baseball model kits to the zippy do kits, we’ve got a huge variety of themes and models. The best part? With all of our kits we give you instructions on building MULTIPLE models. Yes, each kit comes with one set of instructions to build the “main” model, then you go to the site and download (pdf) the manuals for any other model you want to build from that kit or design your own!

Have a look, give us a shot. We’ll light up your life!

Tim, you are welcome to send me some samples and I can write a review. Please note that LEGO fans are pretty picky, so unless your product is top notch and compatible with LEGO, we may not be too enthusiastic. Anyway, if you feel like your products would meet LEGO fans expectations, I don’t mind reviewing them.

Anna/Admins,
Thank you for getting back with us so quickly!
We would love to send you a couple sets to check out.
Of course they are compatible with Lego and the other sets. We feel we compliment their kits and they, ours.
We have several “lines”, from the clear bricks/plates and laser pegs kits:

These also include the 3d Liteboard Kits:

Then we have the Officially Licensed National Geographic kits:
http://www.laserpegs.com/product-category/kits/national-geographic/

The Mobile Power Source kits have tinted bricks and plates and are great for building on the go:
http://www.laserpegs.com/product-category/kits/mps/

The Power Block kits have a large powerbase as part of the actual models, also include tinted bricks and plates:
http://www.laserpegs.com/product-category/kits/power-block/

The Runners kits are fun for kids to build, race, crash and rebuild!
http://www.laserpegs.com/product-category/kits/runners/

The Zippy Do 3 in 1 is a child favorite:
http://www.laserpegs.com/shop/kits/zippy-do/

We expanded on the Zippy Do power base and made more kits utilizing it:

Please, have a look at the entire lineup, http://www.laserpegs.com/shop/
Let me know which ones you want and your address and we’ll get them out to you asap!

Thank you, again, for your time and consideration.

Ok, that’s awesome!
Here’s what I’ve put the request in to send to you:
http://www.laserpegs.com/shop/kits/spider/ This is our Spider, World of Bug themed kit. Build over 16 light up models in 1 kit.
http://www.laserpegs.com/shop/kits/mps-cars/ MPS Series Cars kit. Build over 4 light up models in 1 kit.

This is a great power base for the Laser Pegs. You can create ever evolving Art and hang it on the wall! You can also build and display this as it is and keep all your Laser Pegs and other bricks in the green tub!
All of our kits are Lego and all other similar “bricks”, “blocks” and “plates” friendly!

So pls take a look and, If you like it, post some news in your blog.

Many Thanks,

HI!! Have a question for you. I am looking for a snoopy/Woodstock kit for a Christmas gift. I understand Lego does not have a licescense with them. I did find the nanoblock snoopy kit but it appears the only way to order that is overseas, and I need by Christmas. Any information would be appreciated!!!Thank you Debby

admin December 10, 2014 at 9:56 AM

Debby, Toys’R’Us carries a good selection of Nanoblock kits. An if you know the Nanoblock set number you can also try searching eBay, where you can sometimes find items that are not available from retailers. Please note that Nanoblock is not really kid-friendly and is more meant for adults and modelers. Good luck in your search!

Requesting help to build the Disney castle. Never really worked with LEGOs before but my daughter is really interested in it, so I have questions:

1. any guess how many and what types of tiles to use?
2. has anyone ever built it before and have any design plans?
3. What is the best way to start?

Any help would be appreciated!!!

Reply

admin January 3, 2015 at 10:34 AM

That sounds like an awesome project! I’m not sure what you mean by tiles. Do you mean baseplates to build on? That depends on how big you want to build the castle and what is your budget. People have done some really nice custom Disney Castles, however I don’t know anyone who would have gone through the trouble of producing instructions – it is a lot of work. However you can browse Google Images to find inspiration from Disney Castles others have built.

The easiest and cheapest way to start working on your castle is to purchase one of the LEGO Disney Castle sets, and start expanding on it. Perhaps you even want to get two, so you have extra elements to work with. You can find all the LEGO Disney sets here: LEGO Disney sets at the Online LEGO Shop

Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any other questions. :)

I saw this unique concept 1+1=1 on a liquid iron transporting wagon alias “torpedo wagon”. Its worth to share with lego fans, train fans and people open for new concepts in your blog.
2x same set, build the huge one :) cool for brothers/sisters.

Hello! I just came across your amazing website today and just wanted to express my gratitude. Clearly this site is lovingly maintained and contributed to by those passionate about Lego. I am a 44 year old rediscovering my childhood love for Lego and your site is almost like a museum, there is so much to see and read! In an Internet that is over-flowing with “things”, I very much appreciate such a fun, friendly site dedicated to one of the most amazing toys/creative tools/exploration sets/insert-your-adjective-here. :-) Fantastic job!

LEGO Dr. Who!!!!!!

http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2015/02/lego-040215170008.html

BBC Worldwide and LEGO® have announced a deal to produce a range of Doctor Who Lego, based around a proposal made by fan Andrew Clark last year:

The 12th Doctor – Lego Concept (® 2015 The LEGO Group)Doctor Who and LEGO® fans around the world received exciting news today as The LEGO Group announced that it would be producing a LEGO Doctor Who set.

The concept for a Doctor Who set came from the LEGO® IDEAS website where fans can submit ideas for a set and vote for their favourite idea to be produced.

Doctor Who began in 1963 on BBC Television and is the world’s longest running sci-fi drama. Starring Peter Capaldi as the Doctor and Jenna Coleman as his companion, the hit BBC One show has become a global phenomenon with a loyal and passionate fan base.

The Doctor Who concept from fan Andrew Clark received the 10,000 votes requisite for The LEGO Group to consider it for production.

A licensing agreement between BBC Worldwide and The LEGO Group will see the new set available in all of The LEGO Group’s key markets before the end of the year.

Andrew’s winning design featured a range of Doctors, companions and monsters across the show’s history, but fans will have to wait until later this year to discover what will be produced.

Marcus Arthur, MD of BBC Worldwide UK said:
Both Doctor Who and LEGO enjoy a particularly close relationship with their fans and I can’t wait to see what LEGO produce.
Emma Owen, UK spokesperson for LEGO Ideas commented:
We’re extremely excited to announce that a Doctor Who and a WALL-E set will be released as our next LEGO Ideas fan based sets, congratulations to the designers Andrew Clark and Angus MacLane!

After receiving over 10,000 votes from the online community and having gone through rigorous toy testing from our expert panel, these awesome sets are on track to be on shelves later this year. The final set designs, pricing and availability are being worked out as we speak, so watch this space for the final details!

Yea, we will talk about these on Monday. I already put together an article based on the announcement, however Monday was the first open slot I could squeeze it in. We can discuss and analyze the sets at that time, so please stay tuned. Would love to hear your opinion! :)

Hi, I’m looking for some help with a box of lego advertising proofs and designs from a company called Mako in North Wales. I have pictures here https://db.tt/LdWUxKc2

I’m finding it hard to find the right place to find someone interested as it’s not actually pieces of lego.

Any help or advice appreciated.

Reply

admin February 17, 2015 at 4:42 PM

Jon, hm… I think collectors would be very interested in these. I would suggest mentioning them on the BrickLink.com forum and the BrickSet.com forum. Both are full of older LEGO fans and collectors who love stuff like these. If you need more help just let me know, but that’s what I would do first. :)

Hi!

My name is Ania; I work for LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester.

We have a monthly event for Adult Fans of LEGO, in which we call AFOL Nights :)

Each month (the 1st Thursday of each month) we have a different theme and we have really cool LEGO games and prizes- while guests get to enjoy the center!

Is this something your readers might be interested in? We are located in Westchester NY- in Yonkers.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing back!

Ania, nice to meet ya! We are aware of AFOL nights at Discovery Centers. Our readership is mostly in the USA, however next time we publish any article on Discovery Centers we can mention AFOL nights in general, so readers can check with their local Discovery Center. :)
