[New LEGO Dragon Boat Race Set]

LEGO Singapore has just announced the upcoming 80103 Dragon Boat Race set featuring 2 dragon boats and a staggering 15 minifigures from 1st May 2019 at LEGO Certified Stores

SINGAPORE, 26th April 2019 – LEGO® Singapore has announced the arrival of the much-anticipated LEGO Dragon Boat Race set to arrive on our shores! Available from 1st May 2019 onwards, the LEGO Dragon Boat Race set is expected to be a splash with fans of the sport and LEGO enthusiasts alike.

As with the two Lunar New Year (LNY) themed sets that were released earlier this year, the LEGO Dragon Boat Race set is part of the new wave of Asian themed LEGO sets. Priced at SGD84.90, the LEGO Dragon Boat Race set is expected to fly off the shelves, similarly to the LEGO LNY sets which were sold out both online and in-store shortly after their release.

The Dragon Boat Festival, popularly known as theDuanwu Festival, is a cultural festival originating in China and occurring close to the summer solstice, around the end of May to mid-June. It commemorates the life and death of the famous Chinese scholar Qu Yuan (Chu Yuan).

It is unofficially observed by the Chinese communities of Southeast Asia, including Malaysia and Singapore. Two of the most widespread activities conducted during the festival are preparing and eating zongzi(traditional bamboo leaf-wrapped sticky rice dumplings) and racing dragon boats.

A dragon boat is a paddle boat that is traditionally made of teak wood to various designs and sizes. They usually have brightly decorated designs, with the front end shaped like open-mouthed dragons and the back end with a scaly tail. A sacred ceremony is performed before any competition in order to “bring the boat to life” by painting the eyes.

As with the LEGO LNY sets, the LEGO Dragon Boat Race Set is part of the Spring Festival series, as can be seen by the gold medallion featured on the upper right corner of the packaging.

The latest in the series will allow fans to recreate all the color and thrills of a Dragon Boat Festival and features two impressive dragon boats (one green and one red). Each boat features a dragon head with an opening mouth and posable tail, three minifigure seats for the paddlers, space for the helmsman and drummer to stand, plus small wheels underneath for racing.

There is also a dock which features a food stall with different elements including a pot, rice bucket, six cooked zongzi, two uncooked zongzi and a food sign. The dock is attached to a viewing area for spectators and the judge’s stand with steps, decorative elements and a trophy!

The set comes with 15 minifigures which are made up of two dragon boat helmsmen, six paddlers, two drummers, two spectators, a judge, a young boy and a stall keeper. The helmsmen and paddler minifigures are brand new additions to the LEGO minifigure family.

“Our LEGO Spring Festival series is instrumental in commemorating the rich culture and celebrations of the region, and we are very excited to launch the first ever Dragon Boat Race set in Singapore,” said Cesar Ridruejo, General Manager of LEGO Singapore and Malaysia.

“LEGO is committed to producing sets that are targeted especially to fans in the region, as well as children who will get a unique play experience that is deeply fundamental in culture,” she added.

Awesome LEGO MOC Series – Boulevard Station

It’s been 12 years since the very First LEGO modular building (Cafe Corner) was brought to us in 2007, we have seen fire brigade, apartment, garage, cafe, emporium but never a train station set that many were looking forward to.
6199354-train_station_3_de_27

Thanks to the builder here we have it in the form of this “145 Boulevard Station” featuring elevated train track with enough details such as News stand to wow you over.

There’s even space for 6 lovable minifigures but we were left wondering…
Just when the train will be arriving?

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


The ceiling reveals a glazed space for more light.

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.
