BEST OF LEGO 2018

2018 is almost drawing to a close as we look back at the high and low of LEGO scene, as well as the TOP 10 LEGO sets in 2018.

HIGH OF 2018

1. Nov 2018: LEGO wins Intellectual property lawsuit against LEPIN

2. YEAR OF THE RE-RELEASES?
– Millennium Falcon
– Taj Mahal

LOW OF 2018

Sep 2018: LEGO Sales fall as it record it’s first annual decline in more than a decade.

TOP 10 LEGO SETS OF 2018

We toast to another successful year and a recap on the most memorable LEGO sets in 2018. There are many more outstanding sets, but here’s our take on the TOP 10!

10. LEGO Friends 41346 Friendship box

2018 brings a wide variety of Friends sets from race kart to Heartland City Resort. What really stood out is this Friendship box that is truly an Out-of-the-box set with buildable live sized robot, trophy and camera unlikely any of its siblings.

9. LEGO Inside Tour 2018 4000025 Ferguson Tractor Set

Just how many lucky ones managed to score one ticket to LEGO Inside Tour this year will be able to pick one home as a memory of a lifetime.

8. LEGO IDEAS 21311 Voltron

The LEGO IDEAS Voltron set came in at the 8th spot as possibly the tallest (also the largest till date) IDEAS set for a long time.

7. LEGO BrickHeadz 41597 Go Brick Me

How often do you create a Mini-You replica of yourself? Now you can with this awesome set to match with your favourite tops and hairdo. If only LEGO release a similar edition for Minifigures?

6. LEGO Harry Potter 71043 Hogwarts Castle

Fans of Harry Potter theme might just vote 2018 as the best of LEGO history with this impressive set (coincidentally the 2nd Largest LEGO set ever release) coming in at 6020pcs. It might set a new trend of a castle set every 1-2 years (following Disney Castle’s lead).

5. LEGO 40290 60 Years of LEGO Brick

The 60 Years of LEGO Brick is a Gift-with-purchase set to commemorate 6 decades of building fun with 4 micro versions of the most iconic LEGO builds of the past 60 years, comprising the awesome Airport Shuttle, famous Yellow Castle, Black Seas Barracuda and the Galaxy Explorer.

4. LEGO 71021 Minifigures Series 18

There’s no better way to celebrate 40th Year of Minifigures with the LEGO Minifigures Series 18 set.

3. LEGO System 4000028 Classic House

As part of the 3 Wal-mart exclusive sets to celebrate 60 years of LEGO brick, the classic house will definitely bring back fond memories of the childhood for AFOLs.

2. LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron

71uARUiPPpL._SL1001_.jpg

Our heart lies with the drivable 1:1 LEGO Bugatti Chiron seen in 2018 Paris Motor show but alas it’s not an actual retail set. Thus we settled for the next best thing in this 42083 Technic set.

  1. LEGO Creator Expert 10261 Roller Coaster

And finally. We have the set of the Year award given to the largest LEGO Roller Coaster set ever released (as part of the Fairground sub-theme). This is never a complete set without the add-on LEGO Power Functions motor and battery accessories.

Special Mentioned
1. LEGO Creator Expert 10260 Downtown Diner10260-1.jpg

In the deep corner of our heart, there’s always a place for the 2018 Modular building set as LEGO celebrate the 11th year of this AFOL favourite sub-theme.

We would like to see it develop into a full theme in the years to come as LEGO need to think more out of the box to provide AFOLs with sub-themes of modular buildings that drawn inspiration from the major continents (Asia, Africa, Oceanic theme buildings).

Awesome LEGO MOC Series – THE CENTENNIAL BUILDING

In this episode we pay a visit to ‘The Centennial Building’ built using 2940pcs. The builder created this building through real-life inspiration from the old Nassau County Courthouse, a historic courthouse located in Florida of America.

For those whom owns a set of the modular building 10224 Town Hall may find it familiar with the grandeur scale.

– Frog-goyles peer down at you from the corners of the building’s corniced roof.

Awesome LEGO MOC Series – THE CAR WASH

If you are looking out for the perfect companion to 2018’s LEGO Modular Building Downtown Diner set, The Car Wash would be our top pick with it’s art deco charm (oi boi how we love the imposing electric guitar). And it even double up as a decent car wash.

It is time to make a stop to clean the car and what better place than the car wash that is next to the music store.

A site that is recognized from a distance because it has a giant guitar that announces the place.

More from the Builder

It is an Art deco tropical building style of the late 50s similar to the style of the official set 10260

(Downtown diner) that I find spectacular, and had the need to make an add on for it.

On the ground floor we have outside the car wash with hose, water, taps, buckets, soap, sponges and an industrial vacuum cleaner, inside, a large music store with many records and a typical decoration of the time.

On the first floor we have a more comfortable area to listen to the records and on the outside the great guitar.

On the second floor, the studio of the musician, where he composes his songs and signs the discs of his fans, there are also some of his prizes like the guitar and the golden statuette

Awesome LEGO MOC Series – THE CONCERT GRAND PIANO

Awesome LEGO MOC Series

The Concert Grand Piano is highlight today to share with all music lovers.

Built entirely from 2798pcs LEGO bricks, it accurately captures the mechanical details of a real piano. We were especially impressed with the video shared by the builder (Special thanks to SleepyCow)

More from the builder

“Ever since I started learning music, I have always wanted to build a piano out of LEGO bricks. I have also been asked many times by my students about the inner-workings of a piano. I think this will be a great set to teach students about piano mechanics. I’ve seen many people do it in different ways, but I decided to make my own version, as well as try to make it as similar to a real piano as possible with correct proportions.

Making the LEGO piano playable was my main focus when I designed this model, and at the same time, the most challenging part of the build. Finishing the model and seeing it work smoothly brought me great satisfaction. I spent a long time just siting there playing with the LEGO piano keys, imaging the sounds of a real piano. This is a great example of the creativity and diversity of LEGO bricks.”

Key features;

– Removable keyboard with 25 independent working keys, each key connects to its own hammer.
– Working damper and pedal function.
– 25 strings.
– Realistic piano lid which can be open either half stick of full stick.
– Realistic fall board with a soft close.
– Removable music stand.
– Height adjustable piano bench.
– Self-playing function enabled by adding Power Functions, which allows keys to play at different tempos and rhythms.
– Realistic piano wheels.
