What welcome news, Just last night, I was talking with one of the young men in the neighborhood about sports cars, and lamented that I would never own one. They are too pricey, and even more outside of the budget of an AFOL who spends all that extra cash on LEGO. Lego however has come to my rescue. announcing the release of the Ferrari F40 Lego Super Car.
Every gear head knows the F40, The last Ferrari produced under the direction of Enzo Farrari, it celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Ferrari. Manufactured from 1987 to 1992, demand soared, and 1,315 were built instead of the planned 450. Of these, 2 were produced in Black, and less than 10 in yellow, a few in white, and the rest in that classic red hue replicated here.
It’s hard to judge the fidelity of the set without actually having either to compare with, but they did get the color right I dare say. Then there are the other details, a little too numerous to detail here, but the gallery makes for nice browsing, and drooling. Continue Reading
BrickSlopes is over, and so now we wait, hoping for it to come around again. IF you missed it, were sorry, but don’t worry, well be back again next year, with more displays and activities for the kids.
In what is becoming a normal trend these days, LEGO has released it’s latest LEGO fan Survey. This one appears to be aimed at understanding your use of Social Media, like Flickr, Facebook, and other LEGO related blogs to share and participate in LEGO discussion online.
It can only help so take a minute and take the survey.
Also, at the end of the survey, it sill ask you what LUG you are a part of. A LUG for those not who don’t know, stands for: LEGO User’s Group which is a a club for adults who still enjoy building with little plastic Bricks. This is important and we try to demonstrate to LEGO that there is a following of enthusiasts in Utah that Want A Lego Store Here. So please take a minute, and indicate that you are a member of either ULUG, or the Facebook group Utah Wants a Lego Store.
ULUG is proud once again to display at the Utah County Fair. This year’s display will feature displays both old and new in many popular themes. Themes being represented will include City, Train, Pirates, Egypt, Oz and Space. So weather you’ve never seen ULUG’s Lego display or never missed a show yet, come out, your kids will love it. you’ll love it to as you marvel and they marvel at what you can make out of LEGO.

All credit goes to "Sven" on moc-pages.com for the design. I reversed engineered it from a few pictures he posted. His model is quite faithful to trucks used by UPS that were made by International Harvester Company. I made a few minor changes. I had to make one eventually since I drive a brown truck for a living. Needs mirrors, is missing a few brown headlight bricks, and I have a plan to limit the "stamp" effect. Stickers are wrong scale, but oh well. I’m not sure if those brown tubes I used on the back are real Lego, just found them in a parts bin. …
Hey! I bought this on impulse a couple of weeks ago but I’m now trying to sell it because I need the money. Is there anyone interested in buying it. It’s brand new and unopened. I was going to sell it on Ebay but I just want to check here first to see if anyone is interested. It’s sold out in the stores at the moment, so this could be a great opportunity if you’re trying to buy one. I paid around $860 for it, with tax included, so I’m not willing to sell it for less than that. I will simply sell it to whomever is willing to pay the most.
As I am sure many of us have Lego ornaments on Christmas trees this time of year, please share a pic of one of your favorites that you have hanging this year – any design, MOC, designed by Lego, Chris McVeigh, etc. I’d love to see what people have. …
