Re: LEGO UK FREE LEGO Creator Cute Pig Set w/£35 Purchase

With the u and i being so close on the keyboard, its easy to interchange one for the other. Thankfully, changing a pug to a pig is relatively harmless, unlike the mistake I almost made earlier today when I was writing to a student about duckweed.

It makes me wonder if the Sgt Pepper's movie was a big influence on Cloud Cuckoo Land.

Re: Official Press Release: LEGO 10249 Winter Toy Shop

For those who are disappointed, it does not have to be a shame. Perhaps this year you could make your own building. There were several good examples in the contest held on this site a few months ago. You could add something different, for example does it seem that a house of worship would be appropr...

Re: LEGO Expert 10247 Ferris Wheel - First Look

I recall that a builder named Jamie created and displayed a very similar model which at Brickfair in VA in 2005. (See my photo with other rides that he made.)
