Time flies… We’re here for another issue of LEGO Picks of the Month – where you’ll find a roundup of all the interesting news in the World of LEGO that happened throughout the entire month.
The features this month include a 1,000-piece LEGO diorama of Nye’s Polonaise Room. We’ve also looked into the house of a fellow AFOL, who dedicated an entire room to house all her LEGO pieces (and it’s also where all her fantastic builds were “born”), along with official images of the newest LEGO minifigures series 17 (which will be released in a couple of days time), and sets which will be releasing in the summer of 2017.
Find out more about these stories (and more) in April’s edition of LEGO Picks of the Month below:
