World’s largest collaborative WW2 LEGO diorama – setup

Accordingly with the message Daniel Siskind posted on Flickr, next week, members of Brickmania and members of the Northern Illinois LEGO Train Club will present a joint project of the world’s largest collaborative WW2 LEGO diorama in the First Division Museum at Cantigny Park and it’s going to completely fill the exhibit hall at the First Division Museum.
I’m looking forward for the incoming pictures of this project :)

Pictorial Map of Europe

Great work by Matt Base representing Europe’s countries with some of the most iconic monuments. The micro scale work is amazing. Thumbs up also for the map itself!

Historical minifigs of LEGO Collection Series 12

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.
