In The News
I usually avoid sharing projects I have had a hand in on Brickset to avoid the appearance of impropriety. With Redbeard's Return however, I am just so pleased with how well it turned out that I could not resist.
Darthky and I tried to create a non-ship pirate set that would appeal to hard-core LEGO fans looking for more than the standard sets provide and I think we have delivered on that mission statement.
Darthky implemented a map table that just blew me away the first time I saw it. Really great parts usage.
It was also a lot of fun taking the classic figures of our youth and re-imagining them with modern levels of detail.
Of course, with a whole new Pirate line coming out in just a few months, and Pirates of the Caribbean on the horizon, we realize that these are pretty rough seas in which to launch our venture, but we will have fun with it anyway.

If last year is anything go by, it will be available to the rest of us free with orders over a certain threshold placed during the Thanksgiving weekend in November.
Thanks Bart and Bacon for the news.

We will be judging the entries this week and I hope to be able to announce the winners next Monday.
It looks as if there has been somewhere around 300 entries, so thank you to everyone who entered, and good luck!

Perhaps LEGO Mecha are overplayed, especially within the LEGO Ideas project offerings, but I really dig the novel approach that Plumb is taking to their LEGO City 2080 campaign.
These "blockhead bots" have this nice industrial feel and I like how the color formats work well to express the purpose of each.
It is not exactly obvious from most of the pictures but the "box" on top of each bot hinges open at the side revealing a space just big enough for a minifig.

Issue one [*] of Blocks magazine hits the newsagents' shelves on Thursday next week. Here's what the cover will look like. We (the Blocks team) have been hard at work over the last few months working on it and I'm confident you'll enjoy it.
If you haven't already subscribed, if you do so now you'll receive a limited edition minifigure of magazine editor Mark. Find out more at Blocksmag.com.
We have a few sample spreads that we will share with you over the weekend, and don't forget if you think we're featuring too many articles about the magazine, you can opt out of seeing them in your news preferences.
[*] The issue published in May was a pilot, issue 0 :-)
