The Ford WRC car looks great. It would still be OK without the stickers, but they certainly add to the model. Liking the look of the classic 911 from 75888 and the classic Ferrari cars from 75889. I picked up the Ferrari F1 car last year, but it is still in the box.

A Lego Documentary is on SBS tonight at 7.30pm, for the hardcore lego fans... or people who want to learn a little more about this toy.

Saw that documentary yesterday and gee what an eye opener. Love how the Architecture series came into being. Love that Lego HQ learnt to listen to the fans and stopped being arrogant. Love the Rivendell display. Love the life-size Lego X-wing. Love the Lego museum art. Love that The Magic Portal movie is mentioned. And most of all I love how Lego is used to help autistic children.

There's just so much packed into this documentary.

Not sure if it's the same lego doco I saw some time ago with reference to One by Five. So typical nerdville.

The Magic Portal is quite entertaining if anyone hasn't seen it and has 16 mins to spare https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jde4qHbCtSg

While on the topic of helping kids, I was really amazed to see this vid of a kid who built a Technic prosthetic arm for himself: https://youtu.be/vFymKqUwodY
His MK II version used parts mainly from just this one set: https://shop.lego.com/en-AU/Air-Race-Jet-42066

Another attempt from Target to get rid of UCS Hoth for $199: https://www.ebay.com.au/p/3-Day-List...374%3AFeatured
Too bad there are no popular alternative builds for this set to make it into something cool, like the MOC Nebulon B Fridge challenge from several less attractive sets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOkGul34bfI

Also, Classics Batman Batcave for $199: https://www.ebay.com.au/p/Lego-DC-Co...374%3AFeatured

For both of these, you can get an additional stackable 5% discount from eBay (use PULL5) and 1% cashback from Cashrewards.com.au
= $187 each, shipped.

Starting to see the Lego sets of the upcoming Star Wars Solo movie in the CBD and at Chadstone. The speeder vehicles look impressive and kind of remind me of the 80's.

Lego Batman Movie Arkham Asylum 70912 is on sale at TRU for $169. Pretty decent price for that set given the amount of minfigs in there too.

I got 2 of them for $127 each during their ‘glitch’ on Tuesday. They were also $151 the other week with their other sale they had. I’ve been wanting this for a while but no way I was paying $269 for it.
