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
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 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.
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.
