2013 has the potential to be a very influential year in LEGO, both in good ways and bad. One particular cause of controversy among LEGO fans is the upcoming theme Legends of Chima, which deals with warring humanoid animals, described by many as a Fabuland-esque style.
Plenty of these fans are sad to see one of LEGO's recent successes, Ninjago, come to an end; mixed reactions are abound. In this first edition of 2013 in LEGO, I will examine the building style and possible appeal of these sets.

Greetings fellow Brickipedians! I intend to have a grand contest that challenges the imagination and building skills of its participants.

- A custom Pikeman with a custom helmet, face, tunic, armor and boots, and maybe a custom spear.
- A custom Swordsman with custom armor, shield, and possibly sword.
- A custom Cavalier (essentially like a mounted Swordsman) with custom armor, lance, and horse barding.
- A custom Paladin with custom helmet, shoulder armor + front body armor that allows for a custom cape, with waist armor.
However, I have a few questions, as I currently do not know enough about expert manufacturing of custom-made LEGO pieces in order to have great confidence in this undertaking:
- 1: I'm a bit …
Recently, there has been an amazing product idea on LEGO Cuusoo based on the Back to the Future Trilogy that has steadily been gaining supporters. However, recently, the number of supporters has declined.
If you like the project, please, do not hesitate to support the project; it needs all the supporters it can get in order to reach the looming 10,000 mark!
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post and/or support the project (if you wish to do so). Here is the link: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/96Read more >
