The Modular line of LEGO buildings is by far my favorite LEGO line. Ever. I was hooked the first time I saw the Cafe Corner advertised on the back of a LEGO catalogue. Since the Cafe Corner, each subsequent modular building has been better than its predecessor.
I’m just not feeling the Modular LEGO Detective Office.
I also received a copy of Beautiful LEGO 2 Dark from No Starch Press to review. Beautiful LEGO 2 Dark is a follow up to Mike Doyle’s first book, Beautiful LEGO.
Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark is just that; beautiful.
Nathan Sawaya is a LEGO luminary. He has truly transcended the medium and turned LEGO bricks into LEGO art. His new book, The Art of the Brick, documents this journey.

Do you have a Harry Potter fan in your life? Or a LEGO fan in general? Christmas is right around the corner! Do you need to find that special something for them?
If so, you’ve come to the right place! I have a bunch of Harry Potter LEGO sets posted on Bricklink currently. I’m trying to raise money to fund some of my own LEGO projects!
Check out these hard to find Harry Potter LEGO sets!

Do you have any big LEGO projects in the works for the winter months?
This is turning out to be an EXCELLENT LEGO weekend for me. I’ve been building a MOC that will get displayed at my local LEGO store for the month of November, and I just acquired another LEGO collection including several Harry Potter sets! So happy to have gotten another Diagon Alley.
I went out with my son tonight to find some LEGO CMF Series 12 blind bags, and hit the motherlode at Target. After searching for 20 minutes or so, I think I put together a full set. Best part? The LEGO CMF Series 12 packs are only $2.99! That’s 25% cheaper than Meijer, Toys R Us, and even LEGO Shop at Home.
Are you still collecting the CMFs? What do you think of Series 12?
Don’t forget, you can get double VIP points an LEGO stores and at LEGO Shop at Home in the month of October. I finally purchased the Palace Cinema.
It was between this and the Parisian Cafe, but I figured the Palace Cinema could be retiring next year. I think it will have been out for 2 years in March. Plenty of time for the other one!
Will you be taking advantage of double VIP points?
As you may have heard, they are a lot of rumors flying around regarding the 2015 LEGO sets. I’ve seen some lists, and there were some confidential images leaked, and the 2015 LEGO sets are looking great!
Here are my thoughts on what you can expect for the 2015 LEGO sets:
- The Frozen Disney Princess set will be the must-have for my daughter.
- There is another Creator 3-in-1 mini-modular set coming with a grocery and toy store. I’m really liking this series. It’s a perfect in-between series fitting nicely between traditional town facades and the big modulars we know and love. And this one looks to have some sand green!
- The new Elves theme really should be called Fairies. It looks like a Friends spin off making use of the Friends minidolls. It will be interesting to see what my daughter thinks of these…
- It looks like the City theme will be getting a bunch of construction sets. This is perfect for me as I was planning a construction site in my town layout! The 2015 LEGO sets will include:
- A truck with a porta-potty!
- A bulldozer
- A small construction site with dump truck, crane, and partially built building.
- A Star Wars battlepack including stormtroopers! Looks like a good way to build our Imperial forces. Hopefully they will have the new printed legs!
Looks like a good amount of 2015 LEGO sets to be excited about. What do you think? What are you looking forward to next year from LEGO?
My favorite LEGO theme right now is the modular building series. The LEGO Neighborhood book by Brian and Jason Lyles is dedicated to the modular LEGO standard. This book is PERFECT for me!
This book literally shows you how to “build your own town”!
Are you a LEGO VIP? Do you love the LEGO Winter Village theme? Then you’re in luck!
