"The eagle has landed." Today is the 50th anniversary of the first moonlanding. In honor of that event, LEGO has released the 10266-1 - NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander. Today we take a look at this beautiful set.
For most LEGO sets, we get our inventories directly from LEGO. However, for B-models, sub-sets and small sets, we depend on member input, most importantly for the inventories of such sets. How to select, create and submit inventories for B-models, sub-sets and small sets, that is the main subject of this basic review of set 31088-1 - Deep Sea Creatures
Alternate Builds and B-models, Sub-Sets and LEGO Idea reBuilds, together with MOVs and Modifications and Free, Premium and Freemium MOCs, these are LEGO creations that, besides Rebrickable, no other website in the world can offer you. If you have no idea what I am talking about, then allow me to review set 31086 Futuristic Flyer and show you all it creative possibilities.
The LEGO 10261 Roller Coaster is the latest model in the Creator Expert line, and comes in at a huge 4124 parts. But what really makes it stand out is its physical dimensions - this is a massive display piece and when combined with some motorisation it really draws a crowd. But it is any good?

This is part of a tradition of yearly seasonal cute winter village buildings dating back to 2009, including such gems as the 10235: Winter Village Market and last year wonderful 10245: Santa's Workshop. But as many of you already know, this set kind of break the tradition, as it is not a brand new model but instead a re-release of the first one of the series, 10199 Winter Village Toy Shop. Have we entered a loop of re-releases of winter sets? Or was it just a lazy year for Lego? Only time will tell, but surely many Lego enthusiasts expecting a new set were not pleased by this turn of events.
I remember very well when this car was released in the second half of the eighties. I was a kid back then and the F40, designed by historical firm Pininfarina, exerted and incredible charm to us boys. It was like the absolute top you could ask for a car, from the point of view of a kid: super speed, super slick lines, hidden headlamps, fiery Ferrari red, and much more.
