Favourite all time sets...

An email discussion prompted me to list my top 10 favourite sets that Lego has issued....
(in no particular order)

And the last one, while its not really a set, still my favourite thing Lego has issued, Idea Book 6000, LEGOLAND

Now I would love to know, what is your favourite SET?

Few Mocs in the Making...

I currently have a number of unfinished Lego projects on the go. Sadly most of these were SUPPOSED to be done last November for the Hobby Show but I just ran out of time, and then put them away for the holidays.

Well, Im back at it, and I have a bit of preview of one project.

BETA hand Version 1.2

This project is far from complete, and currently I am not even sure how I will complete it (by low tech or high tech means) but I am happy with my progress. Over the years I have seen many other hand models presented, and some look amazing, and others work amazing, but my goal is to find a middle line somewhere between those two extremes.

Upon completion I will post to Lugnet, but for now, we will just keep it between us, wink.

A Few Great Men... errr I mean... Blogs

Many Lego blogs have come and gone, and some seem to be able to stand the test of time.
I have updated the blog roll list to reflect the ones I actually read to a select few, most of these are updated regularly.

Recently I was lucky to be recognized for my micro Layout on 2 of my top favourite blogs.
So I encourage you to spend time at both...
Brothers Brick found here and Microbricks found here.

Thanks Dunchaser and Bruce.

Toronto Star Box

Last fall I was commissioned by the Toronto Star to do a live one day build as part of a promotion (new sales feature they were launching) at a conference hosted by Strategy Magazine at the Sheraton Hotel (downtown Toronto).

More pics here. Back story at Lugnet here.
