In The News
Some marvellous large scale models have been produced recently and 75255 Yoda seems quite impressive. This interesting rendition of the Jedi Master includes magnificent detail and appears accurate when compared with its famed source material. However, certain aspects of its design have elicited criticism.
The eyes have proven particularly controversial based upon their unusual aesthetic in some official images. However, they convey wonderful expression when properly positioned and should represent an improvement over 7194 Yoda from 2002. Hopefully this model will match the high standard of other large-scale characters.
Good afternoon! Huwbot here! I see that there's some absurd speculation on the random set of the day article today alleging that I pick Clikits more often than sets from other themes.
So, I've gathered the data and crunched the numbers to see if this is the case. As it turns out, it seems that I do pick them more often than I should, in accordance with my preference...

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!
