Painted On The Sprue

I've made no secret of my affection for Pete Reid and Yvonne Doyle. They were my best friends during my time in London. It is truly an honor to have yourself immortalized as a Minifig, and I consider it an honor to know them. This little tribute to classic plastic model building is perfect, and what I've come to expect from one of the best builders in the world.

We are minifigs


Time is running out to enter the Exo RAWR contest on Flickr, sponsored by LifeLites, FBTB and BrickNerd. You are challenged to build a Exo RAWR (Reinforced Animal Wearable Robo-Suits). These entries by Yatkuu and Pixel Fox are both amazing. I just about spit tea this morning when I saw the Beast of Unburdon. You can enter until 11:59 8/31 GST, get building!

Your Chance To Meet Exo Suit Designer Peter Reid

Hey UK readers, listen up. Whatever you were planning to do Saturday the 26th, cancel it. The place you want to be is the LEGO Store Bluewater from 12-4pm. Exo Suit designer and LEGO artist Peter Reid is going to be there signing sets and answering questions. Not only do you get early access to the Exo Suit and get to meet Pete, you can score one of these sets of exceptionally exclusive collector cards. Now would someone please perfect transporter technology so I can zip over there and still be back in time for my Panel at SDCC?
