Check Out 'Crazy Arms' Custom Minifigure Arm Poses on Kickstarter

Posted by ,

Crazy Bricks is nearing the end of their Kickstarter for 'Crazy Arms', a new idea to allow for minifigure arms in multiple poses. With only a mere $1800 left until they reach their $15000 goal, they just need a few more pledges until they make these custom minifigure arms a reality. Crazy Arms offers a variety of new shapes of minifigure arms—something many fans and customisers have probably wished for at least once in their lives. The poses shown in the Kickstarter offer a world of possibilities and have great potential for builders looking to create scenes and vignettes featuring minifigures. If you are a MOCist, brickfilmer, or any other LEGO hobbyist, definitely check out this Kickstarter, as well as Beyond The Brick's episode 162 where they interview Crazy Bricks creator Guy Himber and go into detail about Crazy Arms.

Scooby-Doo sets now available at Amazon

Posted by ,

The five Scooby-Doo sets have been officially released today. Amazon.co.uk has them in stock for next day delivery -- order them now, get them Sunday!

They are also available at shop.LEGO.com (UK | USA | Canada), of course, although the Mystery Machine is on back-order already, so Amazon looks like a better bet at the moment.

If you haven't already, check out our reviews of four of the sets.

If you're in the USA, you can order them from Amazon.com for delivery early next week.

Review: 75901 Mystery Plane Adventures

Posted by ,

75901 Mystery Plane Adventures is the weakest of the five Scooby-Doo sets in my opinion, although it still holds appeal purely for the presence of the Headless Horseman. The Horseman is a true icon of horror, having appeared in various forms of literature since the Middle Ages but made most famous by Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

The set is priced at £19.99 or $19.99 but contains only 128-pieces, a very disappointing figure even taking account of the licensing fees and the inclusion of a couple of larger pieces. The size of the plane is also unimpressive in that regard as it feels very light considering the cost of the set.

However, there are some positives to be taken from the set as the play value is reasonably high and the Headless Horseman minifigure is absolutely brilliant. In fact, it might be my favourite of the entire theme!

Bricks Issue 3 is about to make a splash

Posted by ,

Issue three of Bricks magazine will be published on Monday. Here's the press release and some sample spreads:

The air tank is full, the sea is calm and Bricks is jumping into one of the most anticipated City ranges of the year: Deep Sea Explorers. A group of Bricks experts has assembled around the table to examine the amazing range of submersibles, the deep sea operation base and the numerous support vehicles working with the divers on the surface.

Meanwhile, Huw Millington steps back in time to look at the entire Aquazone range, an early ancestor of the Deep Sea Explorers. Our resident construction expert James Pegrum is exploring the wide variety of water building techniques while Iain Scott presents his reef bed, a model created exclusively for this issue of Bricks. Lucy Boughton brings us back to the surface with a visit to the beaches of Paradisa and also takes a look at the other seashore-based sets released by LEGO over the past two decades. The Bright Bricks team is taking a trip too, this time to the Golden State of California where their enormous Queen Mary build is now ensconced.
