Mini Modulars

Over on Brickset they note that set 10230, Mini-Modulars that was announced last year (at BrickCon?) is now available on lego.com. Apparently for the moment this is for LEGO VIP's only.

Titolian has taken floating rocks into different scales. A couple of weeks ago he made aloft, and then today took that same scene and shrank it further.

Jackie Britton

I've been totally remiss in not posting about Jackie Britton. Her amazing world-wide exploration is back on, and for the past three months she's been in Central and South America, seeing Unesco World Heritage sites like Qiuto and Tikal.

That's no moon

LEGO has come up with another interesting series for micro builders, the Star Wars Planets sets. The first series consists of 9674-1: Naboo Starfighter & Naboo, 9675-1: Sebulba's Podracer & Tatooine and 9676-1: TIE Interceptor & Death Star. Each of these sets has a minifig, a microscale vehicle, and, at probably the smallest scale ever in a LEGO set, and 11-wide planet (or space station). This is the most scale mixing we've seen in an official set since, I believe, 7468, Saturn V Moon Mission. The ships are nice - I particularly like the TIE Interceptor, but those planets will be interesting elements. I'm sure we'll see builders put these to use in forced perspective scenes in space battles. Probably the most obvious application I see, given that I just packed away my Christmas decorations, is to make a Star Wars themed Christmas tree next year, with micro ships and these planets as ornaments. There's apparently another series coming out this summer, so I look forward to seeing what those are like.

Battle of Hoth

Battle of Hoth is an upcoming game release from LEGO. No clue what game play will be like, but I see microfigs of almost every major character, including Hoth Han, Chewie, Darth Vader, Snowtroopers, Luke in a flight suit (okay, well, some rebel in a flight suit), Boba Fett (huh? he wasn't at the battle), and others, plus micro versions of an AT-AT, an AT-ST, a Snowspeeder, and a Tauntaun. I'll bet every Star Wars fan will want this, regardless of how the game works.
