CUUSOO: The Winchester - Shaun Of The Dead Reaches 10,000 Supporters

And yet another LEGO CUUSOO project reaches 10,000 supporters. The Winchester - Shaun Of The Dead was submitted by Yatkuu less than three months ago. This goes to show how quickly CUUSOO projects can reach 10,00 supporters.
This is just the 4th of hopefully many projects turned into sets.

I think a lot of fans will be excited about this set. Finally we shall receive zombies in large quantities.

The Romans Stole My Homework by LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist

This MOC is just one scene from a hilarious story made by LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist on Mocpages.
I definitely advise checking it out.

The Grey Havens by Infomaniac --

This scene by Infomaniac is very impressive, and there is some great forced perspective work done here!
Just looking at it makes me want to watch The Lord Of The Rings again.

Tron Legacy was more than just a fun adventure movie, the vehicles were purely amazing and the film left most LEGO builders with an aching to build.
It's hard to pull off these great vehicles, but Peter Mowry may have made the best possible LEGO Light Cycle ever!

See it on Mocpages or Flickr.

New Avengers Set Images

As summer approaches, more and more set images are popping up. We recently saw the Avengers set images because of the NY Toyfair, but we now have more!
Not really anything we didn't already know, except for the Wolverine Chopper Showdown. This set appears to transform from an armored truck into a helicopter. Looks cool!

I don't know about all of you, but this theme is making me very excited! Almost as exciting as the Avengers film coming out in May!

New DK Books For 2012



LEGO Batman: The Visual Dictionary
LEGO Ninjago: Character Encyclopedia
Ultimate Sticker Collection: LEGO Batman
LEGO Friends: Brickmaster

I don't understand what the big deal is with the character encyclopedias, they have great pictures and all, but most of the information is already known by at least 50% of LEGO fans, and I have found several errors in the information too.
I'm still gonna get them though. After all, they are collectors items.

LEGO CUUSOO: Modular Apple Store

CUUSOO projects can have their fazes, but some are here to make an imprint.
I present for your example, Modular Apple Store. This project was added by Gotoandbuild on CUUSOO and it is definitely something worth supporting. From the i-phones, to the pictures on the walls, even to the trashcan in front, this building packs a punch!

It is currently sitting at 1,406 supporters, but you can bet that this number will raise drastically.

Get over and support it Here.
