LEGO Friends Alive & Well

Good news, LEGO Friends fans!  The LEGO Group reports that since its launch, the LEGO Friends line has sold twice as well as expected.  I wasn't too sure about this line when it first came out, but I've gotten a few of the sets and we all really like them.  They have lots of unique pieces and the colors are fun.  I think I've even gotten used to the new people, even though it's still a little annoying that their feet don't move.

With the news of Friends Advent Calendars being stopped in production, I was worried that it was a sign of bad things to come.  It appears that isn't the case.

Now Available - Tomb of the Fangpyre - Graphic Novel #4

Attention all Ninjago fans!  The latest graphic novel from Papercutz is now available - Tomb of the Fangpyre by Greg Farshtey and Jolyon Yates.  In the beginning of the book are awesome illustrations of the ZX characters and the Fangpyre Tomb.

A report from LEGOBoy:  "The four ninjas are trying to recover the four fragments of the Serpentine Stone which depicts how the Serpentine came to be and how the Great Devourer was created.  There's a cool rattlecopter fight and a fight between Zane and a shark.  One of the pages shows all the Serpentine from all the tribes, except for Pythor."

At the end of the book is a teaser for the next graphic novel, Kingdom of the Snakes.
Overall, LEGOBoy would rate this book 5 stars out of 5!  He recommends that all Ninjago fans read this one soon!

LEGO Birthday Cake (#40048)

We recently traveled to our closest LEGO store and picked up a few things, like the new Heroica set Ilrion and a Core Hunter for LEGOBoy.  Right now when you spend $50 or more at a LEGO store or you get a cute birthday cake set to celebrate LEGO's 80th birthday!  We had some VIP rewards to use, too, so we made out pretty well.

But getting back to the cake... it's set #40048 - 24 pieces.  I really like the plate they have it sitting on.

It's a cute little set with some fun pieces in it.  We also got to check out a lot of new LEGO sets while we were at the store.  There wasn't much new in the build-a-mini or pick-a-brick wall, though.

That's all for now!

We proudly present the first in a series of posts of LEGO Art created by LEGOBoy.  It was particularly difficult to pose the tiger in Symphony in Orange No. 2.  Which one is your favorite?
