As if one Star Wars-themed holiday wasn’t enough (May the Fourth), today is Force Friday. That just means the merchandise for the new Star Wars movie is available starting today. There are various promos and sales to go along with it, so that’s a thing I guess.
Anyway, this is as good an excuse as any to share these animated Star Wars clips that LUG Member Alex worked on! Check out the videos below.

On August 3rd, I LUG NY members Brian G and Brian W attended the Adult Night festivities at the Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester. Legoland Discovery Centers offer an Adult Night every other month and are usually held on the first Thursday of the month from 7-9 PM. Adults are not able to visit the LLDC during normal hours of operation without children. Adult Night gives adults a chance to see what the LLDC is about and the chance to take part in activities that combine LEGO with some other fun theme. Previous Adult Nights were centered around pop culture (Star Wars, Super Heroes, Video Games and Halloween last October). This month’s theme was Nickelodeon.

A light brick is a 2×3 brick with a button-activated LED light. The LUG acquired a couple hundred of them, so we decided to use them as a seed part for this month’s build challenge. Continue reading JULY 2017 BUILDING CHALLENGE- LIGHT BRICKS
This month we had three entries to the build challenge. The challenge was to build something based on a literature theme. Continue reading June 2017 Building Challenge- Bricks and Books
The PFx brick project on Kickstarter has relaunched here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fxbricks/pfx-brick-special-fx-for-lego-creations, and I’m just as excited about it as I was last time.
I’m all for using 3rd party electronics in LEGO – especially using this sort of thing to revive discontinued systems like Monorail, and I’m really excited about this project for a couple reasons:
- They’re partnering with Brickstuff to make easy connections to those very excellent lights.
- They’re taking a great approach to remote control with their IR system – having to pair a “smart brick” with a phone or tablet is really a pain at a big public show – especially when you walk awak and your train stops…
Head on over to their Kickstarter page and take a look. They’re about 135 “deluxe” packages away from being funded, with 16 days left.
last weekend, we displayed the latest iteration of our ever-expanding Moonbase collaboration at Brickfair New England 2017. Continue reading Moonbase at Brickfair New England 2017
