Check This Out! Barad-dûr By Swan Dutchman

I admit that after reading The Fellowship Of The Rings I had little interest in reading the rest of the trilogy. It’s something I’ll probably revisit someday, when I’ve been awake for several days and need something guaranteed to put me out. My wife convinced me to go the see the films though and I’ve quite enjoyed those over the years.

While I might not be the biggest Tolkien fan, I certainly appreciate a great build. Swan Dutchman‘s tower is built scaled down on to a 48 x 48 baseplate, but it’s huge in detail.

HEY LEGO! Where’s My…? Boba Fett (Animation Version)

Check This Out! It Took A Lot Of Hammers To Build That Wall

There is a lot to like about this relatively small, build. The shaping of the base is nicely done, the book-ended rock work makes good use of BURPs and there is a lot of great SNOT work around the gate. The highlight of the build is the wall section that is constructed from a whole lot of Mjolnir’s with their tops facing out. It’s a wonderful effect and an excellent use of headlight bricks and hammers.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Review

The latest LEGO movie has arrived on the big screen and it has some big, brick-built shoes to fill. The LEGO Movie caught many off guard when it arrived in 2014. It garnered almost universal praise amongst critics and audiences alike and earned nearly $470 million dollars worldwide. Just this past February, The LEGO Batman Movie earned over $300 million and similarly high praise. So how does The LEGO Ninjago Movie compare to its illustrious predecessors? Well, I have some thoughts…
