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

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!
