When Adam at The Minifigure Store offered to send me a Brick Popper to review, I have to confess I didn't know what it was.
It turns out it's a tool for removing plates. It's marketed in the USA by BrickPopper LLC and is billed as the 'World's fastest LEGO brick remover'.

The marketing people in LEGO have been reading your comments, here and elsewhere, about the UCS labelling on this set. Here's what they have to say about it:
"The decision has been made to change the packaging for future “LEGO exclusive” Star Wars sets to include the UCS seal and de-link from the core Star Wars packaging. In addition to the packaging change, an update has been made to the building instructions. The building instructions will have additional pages detailing the model’s connection to the movie and its development process. Much as the Creator Expert badge differentiates the larger models from the core assortment, the goal of this change is to better communicate to builders that these sets represent our biggest building challenge in the LEGO Star Wars theme."

If you've been reading Brickset for any length of time, you will know I have a soft spot for Creator animals, and if you've examined many of my photos closely, you'll know from the number of white cat hairs that seem to find their way into them, that I have cats. The new Creator set 31021 Furry Creatures, then, would seem to be a match made in heaven for me...

Whilst catching up on my RSS feed reading earlier I stumbled across several articles about the Technic Volvo L350F Wheel Loader that's being released in the summer. They are interesting because they provide more information about this year's biggest Technic set and also reveal that one of Eurobricks' staff members, Superkalle, a Volvo engineer, had a hand in its design.
Volvo's press release details how the model came about and the video below, also published by Volvo, compares the Technic version with the real vehicle.

One of Brickset's aims is to be the hub of the online LEGO community, particularly with regards to product information. To further this aim, I have this week hooked into several other websites' web services to pull in useful information to the site and also to increase exposure of the other sites and to help drive traffic to them.
Here's what's been added this week:
