Mark Stafford Killed Teal

LEGO Colour 107 , Dark Turquoise or Teal is a lovely colour.

Mark Stafford Killed Teal

Mark’s first set as a LEGO designer, was the Exo-Force Dark Panther. He had the choice of making it in either Purple or Teal, and whichever colour he chose, the other would be cut from the LEGO colour palette.

Obviously he chose purple…so Mark Stafford Killed Teal.

How do you like your LEGO hotdog cooked?

 

How do you like your LEGO hotdog?

There are a few different ‘flavours’ or ‘cooked states’ of LEGO hotdog now.

Sand Blue – frozen

Flesh – raw

Red – cooked

Dark Red – well done

Black – burnt to a crisp.

 Forget the steak, how do you like your LEGO hotdog cooked?

Now LEGO just need to make some wholemeal hotdog buns 🙂

Playing in the Park 1966 vs 2016

1966
Back in the days, the park was a place of tranquillity, the laughter of children, picnics on the grass and kites in the sky.

2016
As she sat relaxing with her bakewell tart and coffee in it’s recyclable cup, Doris wasn’t sure if she should hide under the bench for safety or smile for the camera!

Meet Doris

On the left it is 1966 and she is a young vibrant lady in touch with the latest fashion, technology and trends.

On the right, time has passed and it is 2016 and Doris has to cope with new technology, innovation and the changes in society.

Third in a series of builds called Then & Now for Bricks magazine, a LEGO magazine : republic66media.com/

Mr Bean and his MINI with Building Instructions 17 Feb 16

I’ve been waiting to get the mop head since CMF series 15 came out just to give it to Mr Bean.

Teddy – check

Mr Bean – check

Lime mini – check

MOP HEAD – yay check.

I love Mr Bean and this is probably my favourite scene 🙂

Mr Bean & his Mini

Instructions for the Mini are here:

Mr Bean is a custom minifigure by minifigures.com

NB. it was built for looks rather than play as the round 1×1 presses on the wheel if you push it in too far. oops
