When the summer wave of Friends sets was announced, 41379 Heartlake City Restaurant caused some of the most buzz. Not only does it contain collectible food pieces (some of them new), but many felt that it was reminiscent of 10027 Breezeway Café. When Huwbot in his infinite wisdom selected 10027 as a Random Set of the Day, I took it as a sign that I should review 41379 first from this summer's Friends sets.
The annual Creations for Charity sale has just started, and from now until the end of November you can buy a custom LEGO creation or minifig to raise money to provide LEGO sets for underprivileged children.
This year marks the eleventh anniversary of the fundraising event. Since 2009, over $100,000 has been raised and with that money local coordinators have purchased and donated thousands of brand new LEGO sets to organisations serving children in need as well as schools, orphanages, and children’s hospitals across the world.
It's an excellent cause and I encourage you to buy or donate something!

Familiar vehicles dominate the latest LEGO Star Wars range and 75250 Pasaana Speeder Chase seems accordingly enticing, focusing upon new vehicles that appear during Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The resilient transport craft looks particularly impressive.
Furthermore, some marvellous minifigures are included, three of which are exclusively available here and they feature extraordinary detail. The price of £44.99 or $39.99 has elicited some discussion but I remain interested in this set because it seems more distinctive than others based upon Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
The build-a-minifigure bar is a popular attraction in brand stores at which, as its name suggests, you can build minifigures from a wide range of parts and purchase a pack of three figures plus an accessory for each for £4.99.
Recently LEGO has started to introduce parts that are not available elsewhere in order to spice it up a bit and I understand that a new selection will be added every quarter.
The latest arrivals include some excellent Halloween-themed pieces.
