WHAT THIS BLOG ISThere used to be a lack of discussion online about new parts, and it was labour-intensive to learn what new elements and parts the LEGO Group are releasing and what sets they come in. The LEGO Group are releasing a lot of new elements these days, so we cherry-pick the ones that excite us the most. There will be posts about new pieces, new or returning colours, LEGO history, and we happily wander off on tangents sometimes... maybe even interesting ones!
We also run regular "parts festivals" where we invite builders to use the new elements we send them to create inspiring LEGO builds. We also run occasional building workshops at LEGO fan events in Europe and share the results with you.
WHAT IT ISN'TThese posts are not a complete listing of new elements. Largely, we stick to posting about just the new System elements but new minifigure parts are less likely to be included. Much as I love minifigs, there's just too many new prints and parts out there.
We don't accept and publish your creations or submissions to LEGO Ideas – we love to see them and please feel free to link to them in the comments – however there are dozens of other sites that showcase everyone's work so we leave it to them.
Can you help?
We're just LEGO fans; we don't run this site for our own personal profit (nor anyone else's!). If you like what we do, maybe you can send some pennies our way to help us carry on. Find out about ways you can do this here - maybe even just by doing things you already do.
