As you probably noticed from the site updates panel on the right, I added many more pictures of summer sets that Amazon.co.uk published yesterday. One that escaped my attention, however, was 21020 Trevi Fountain.
The fountain is a truly magical place in the heart of Rome that's always swarming with tourists day and night. It looks as if this set does the landmark justice.
There's definitely an Ice Age vibe to them: mammoths, sabre-tooth tigers, ice vultures and so on. I haven't looked at them all closely yet, but the the mammoth minifigs in this Maula's Ice Mammoth Stomper did catch my eye.
There's a LEGO show being held in Budapest, Hungary, 3-25 May in the Mammut 1. Shopping Centre. There's more information on the show website.
Finally, in Sydney, Australia, on the May the 4th weekend, Star Wars and LEGO fans alike are invited to come together and celebrate the world of LEGO Star Wars with a building event like no other. Over the course of the Saturday May 3rd and Sunday May 4th, we will attempt a world first - the largest model of Darth Vader made from LEGO bricks, standing at close to 4m in height and made over a quarter of a million LEGO bricks. It's being held at the Westfield Penrith shopping centre. More information is available on the centre's website.
