Historical minifigs of LEGO Collection Series 12

July 27, 2014

It was revealed the first official pictures lining up the new minifigs of series 12.
I’m glad to find a few more historical characters, this time the collection seems to include a Mongol and female Greek warrior. It  also seems to include a new Musketeer and a old western gold miner :D

In overall the new collection is very attractive and it’s probably related with the new Lego Minifigures online game.

Lake Worth Gold Mine

October 19, 2013

Fedin posted this beautiful minifigure scale model of the Gold Mine on the HistoryBricks flickr’s group. The rockwork is amazing but the minifgures posing is my favorite part of this diorama. We can find the workers, bandits, the old miner and  the guy washing the dirt/gold on the lakeshore.

By coincidence, today I’m recovering my brother’s old set 6761-1: Bandit’s Secret Hide-Out :D

The Battle of Little Round Top

September 16, 2013

 

 

Defense of Little Round Top, Overview

As mentioned previously, this year marks the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War. This sizeable diorama depicts the defense of the hill known as “Little Round Top” on the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg (July 2nd, 1863). Here The 20th Maine commanded by  Col. Joshua Chamberlain, defend the height of the hill against the onslaught of the 4th, 15th, and 47th Alabama under Confederate Brig. Gen. Evander Law. The Union troops successfully repulsed the attack, setting the stage for the next, and last, day of the Battle of Gettysburg.

Hats off to Gary the Procrastinator who built this!

 

Modular Western Town

April 8, 2012

Modular Western Town project has been live on LEGO Cuusoo since October 2011. The Brothers Brick, Eurobricks, Brickset, Toys N Bricks and others have been supporting this project for a while. I would like to join them supporting too this great idea of extending the modular building concept to the old West!
Let’s take one step further to bring this idea to reality by supporting the project here.

Fort Legoredo

November 22, 2011

Fort Legoredo was one of my favorite LEGO sets during my childhood and was a pleasant surprise when I discovered this wonderful tribute from Franko Komljenovic and Matija Grguric to this set from the year 1996.

Wild west chariot

Lovely these two wild west charriots built by Matija Grguric. The amount of details is very high and he managed to capture really well the concept of these western’s icons.

Collectible Minifigures Series 6 and 7

October 15, 2011

Toys N bricks had publish the first official pictures from the upcoming series of Collectible Mifigures. Like previous collections, these new series presents new historical figures that will delight many LEGO fans.

The 6th series presents a roman warrior. Personally I’ve been waiting for ages for the LEGO roman empire. This figure and the new rounded bricks of the Atlantis sets will make a beautiful  combination :-)

This collection also presents a barbarian warrior, which is nice for the battles against the roman army, and a cowboy that will fit perfectly in any western MOC.

 

 

The 7th series presents a Viking warrior (girl?), a cool hippie that will fit nicely 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van and, my favorite, the Aztec warrior (or at least, what I think that it is). The mermaid man will also make a cool Neptune roman god of the sea.

Windmill

October 11, 2011

A motorized windmill is the last addition to Matija Grguric’s western layout. The details of the mill are great, specially the way he built the blades.

Wow!!! Was the only word that just came out of my mouth when I saw Fat Tony 1138‘s Big Thunder Mountain, is entry for the western contest at Eurobricks.

This MOC left anyone speechless. It’s a stellar work incredible detailed and very dynamic. I almost hear the train sizzling past… I wish I could back to Disneyland right now…
