Time flies… Today’s the last work day of 2017. We certainly hope you’ve had a great 2017 – we certainly had a fun one – researching for the most interesting LEGO news, custom builds, as well as digging for the best price discounts and presenting them all to you in our site as well as on our Facebook page! ?
We’d like to end the year with the latest edition of our free online publication, “LEGO Picks of the Month”, where we take a look at all things LEGO we have presented throughout the entire month. Some of the top stories include:
✔️ A heartwarming story by the police where they donated hundreds of pounds of stolen LEGO to sick children in Truro
✔️ A LEGO-built treehouse by fellow AFOL KevinTreeHouse which is not only a challenging build (as it consists more than 2,600 LEGO pieces), but there’s also lots of playability to be had with this one!
✔️ Finally, there’s a conclusion to LEGO’s fight with brand imitators, where they finally won the copyright case (Hooray!!!)
✔️ For those of you who love the Iron Legacy Light Cycle build, good news, as the build by BrickBros UK is going to be produced as an official LEGO Ideas set
✔️ And much, much more…
Check out all the above stories and more in this month’s LEGO Picks of the Month below… Happy reading!
