fabulous plan! This is an excellent idea. New users are often confused about our association with The LEGO Group. Having official answers would provide a lot of insight into a variety of questions. "What kind of plastic are LEGO bricks made of?" is one example where the community has done an excellent job piecing things together and quoting official ...

We got our bricks yesterday, and I put a quick model together using the parts from 10405: I was trying to keep things imaginative and childlike while honoring the history of Lego as these sets do. Does anyone here have access to post directly to our Twitter account, or is it just a question reposting bot?

The distinctions stated in the document are not too big. However, bullet three in the LOC brick of tier one is what Bricks SE is about: "Forum traffic mirrors activities and is perceived as valuable by the Community". We mostly don't spread press releases or other fan media related material. Therefore, the category chosen by LEGO is fitting, or the other ...

Here are some of the Recognized LUG requirements I was told by LEGO Employees at BrickFair VA 2016, which may pose an issue: Must have a website, not social media, with contact ability. Must host 3 public events a year. I'm not sure how this site ranks as "website" vs "social media" in the eyes of LEGO (yes, I know we don't consider SE is social ...

2nd June 2017: LEGOLAND Billund On the final day we had a chance to relax and explore the beautiful LEGOLAND park in Billund. We had a short tour of Miniland and had the chance to see two of the newest attractions. Worlds Tallest Minland New for 2017, the 'Worlds Tallest Miniland' features five of the tallest buildings from around the world built to a 1:...

The LEGO House is due to open on the 28th September 2017. It will include paid attractions as well as an area open to the general public, including eateries and a LEGO Shop. The LEGO House consists of four ...

Considering I wasn't sure what question best represents I've gathered a few questions based on certain criteria. Best Viral Question How much usage can a LEGO piece take before it loses its 'clutch power'? The most upvoted and one of the most viewed question on our site. A great example of a "What if...?" complete with a investigative answer that shows ...

1. Welcome and Lobby As you enter The LEGO House you are directed towards the wristband dispensers to generate your personalised RFID wristband, peruse the shop (although you may want to leave that till later!) and grab a coffee from Brickaccino. You can also access the forum - a raked seating theatre space for presentations with seating for about 200 people ...

3. Experience Zones Coming down from the Gallery, you head into the experience zones - the four coloured areas representing different themes within the house. Each zone has its own terrace area on the roof, covered in the rubber surface typically found in playgrounds, with different activities to let the younger visitors let off some steam from climbing ...

5. Parting Gift and The LEGO House App Back up on the ground floor and you make your way past the Tree of Creativity and a wall displaying just some of the over 900 million combinations of 6 red 2x4 bricks, and through to the exit. Here you can see an injection moulding machine making red 2x4 bricks, along with an entire process that cools, counts and bags ...

I think it's right for where we are currently - we don't really have "Activities [that] extend far beyond their circle of members/subscribers potentially with a global impact" for example - and our members here who do exhibit at events tend to do so under their LUG rather than as Bricks I think. Interesting that we get/had access to LUGBULK - although that ...

I'm very pleased with the tier we have been assigned. I think it's a fair assessment of the current state of the site. Bricks Stack Exchange is in an unusual fit as it is neither primarily journalistic (fan media) nor a traditional discussion forum. I think Bricks SE is closer to the definition as a LEGO community as the content is driven very much by the ...

I wrote a review for 10404 Ocean's Bottom last week, which you can find on my site. After building the six featured models in the set, there were a large number of pieces left over. I built two custom models: a nudibranch fitted with an engine so it can go faster: And a sand dollar:

I was going to make a conventional set using 10405, but of course my little brother stepped in... "Who says ducks can't take over the world? Ducks can do anything!" - Conspiracy Theorist This is my first post, please tell me if anything needs to be fixed. Kindly, not like this one.

4. The History Collection and LEGO Cinema Back downstairs from the Experience Zones and down into the basement you'll come to The History Collection and LEGO Cinema. For us the cinema was showcasing LEGO adverts from history. The History collection starts with a museum telling the history of The LEGO Group, with examples of the toys and sets it has created ...

2. Tree of Creativity and Masterpiece Gallery After the introduction, it was time to explore the main part of the House - starting with a climb around the Tree of Creativity. This is a massive LEGO build, full of details, from the various carvings in the bark trunk to the wonderful dioramas in the canopy - many of the main LEGO themes are represented, ...
