It is no secret that the LEGO group offers the opportunity to it’s fans to see inside the factory in Billund at a special LEGO inside Tour, but at a cost of about US $2,600, and only 75 available slots, it is unlikely that most of us will ever get to go.
But Fear not, The National Geographic Channel has done an excellent video of the factory, the design process,and all that makes a LEGO brick a LEGO brick.

Lego today has unofficially announced the future release of the latest Star Wars UCS set, along with the Lego clubTV Video:

More interesting to me though is that this seems to confirm the accidental inclusion of this model, and what appears to be a haunted house in the opening sequence of the Town Hall Video

The mosaic is finished! Brian Pilati, ULUG’s president, sent this message out after the build:
