At last, we've been given the go-ahead to reveal the 16th figure of series 17 collectable minifigures: The Highwayman!
I guess LEGO wanted to have a bit of fun with this figure to inject some mystery and excitement into its marketing campaign by not revealing it with the others.
It may well have been successful in keeping the identity a secret from Joe Public but I'm sure most of you will have found pictures on other fan sites by now given they've been turning up in shops since the beginning of the month.
Anyway, if you've not seen it yet and you're expecting something spectacular I think you'll be disappointed. It's a nice figure but not really worthy of such special treatment.
There's a dearth of news at the moment so let's have a #ThrowbackTuesday rather than wait until Thursday...
Over the last few weeks Matt Hocker has been busy scanning old printed material for inclusion in our library and today I found the time to add some of it, starting with five old Ideas Books, which are always fascinating to browse.
The highlight is Ideas Book No. 1 from 1960 which is particularly interesting because as well as showing children what can be built using the limited selection of bricks available at the time, it also extols the virtues of 'LEGO as a hobby' for adults.
