Happy New Year

Time for one of those rare 'housekeeping' posts, mostly to acknowledge that things have been a bit quiet here for a few weeks! On top of the usual Christmas madness I've had a trip back home to Australia, so things have fallen behind.

As a result I am going to EXTEND THE DEADLINE for our 'Kill Teal' building competition, because I haven't had much time to promote it or, more importantly, to organise the prizes! I will update everyone with the new deadline once I sort those out, but for the time being you can safely assume you have until some stage in February to design your entries... or to create more. We have had many hilarious, brilliant entries already! All entries will be published when the contest closes.

We have a variety of interesting posts coming up soon including reviews of new 2018 LEGO® parts and sets, a book review and the (now long-awaited) results of our Skaerbaek / London AFOLs workshops. So here's to an exciting year ahead!

  2. Well that's kinda of a relief. I've been slacking on getting my entry made. Wish we could see the other entries for inspiration though.

    1. I find it dissuades some people when they see their idea already executed by someone else. Also, there can be arguments around plagiarism occasionally

  4. As I like teal AND have an idea, I really should start working on it, though that the extended deadline may just lead me to more procrastination :D

    1. But if you finish it early you might have another idea and double your chances of winning!

  5. Nice pic. Good to see full ethnic diversity on display: no beard, stubble, medium beards and big beards are all covered.
