LEGO Quarterly Community Survey – July 2010

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Time to pass your thoughts on to the LEGO Group!

The latest community survey was in April 2010. Now we want to ask you again to fill in a new survey (with some old questions, but also some new ones) to know even more about global AFOL (defined as ages 20+) and TFOL (defined as ages 13-19) communities. Adult or Teenage Fans of LEGO bring an important perspective to the LEGO Group. So this information is of great interest to the LEGO Group.

Please take a moment to complete this short online survey. Afterwards you can see the key findings of the last survey and tell us how the current one went in the LEGO Pirates forum.

Thank you on behalf of The LEGO Community Team!

ToRII: The history of the coats by Capt. Thomas Foolery

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

That's not the right way to handle those fine drinks!

For as long as anyone can remember there has been an ongoing battle between Bluecoats and Redcoats. Capt. Thomas Foolery shows us this history like the Redcoats remember it. The story is being told to settle the disagreement once and for all. But for how long will it really last? And why do the Redcoats think they are the best?

Find out in Capt. Thomas Foolery's ToRII-entry "The history of the coats"!

ToRII: A spy at night is a coward at day by Kerntechniker

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Oh no! He is turning himself into a redcoat!

Using dynamite to blow up just one enemy soldier? That's quite cruel isn't it? But a redcoat came up with this idea and was promoted for it! In Kerntechniker's comic, you'll see this and more (like some bluecoats getting slaughtered). So if you are a true redcoat, you can't miss this one!  For the bluecoats among us, it's a good reason for taking revenge in an even more cruel way!

Check out Kerntechniker's ToRII-entry and more comics in the LEGO Pirate forum!

Many great comics in the Pirates LEGO forum!

Monday, July 12th, 2010

Want to know how this ends? Take a look in the pirates forum!

The 2nd Tournament of Retribution is running smoothly with many great entries already!  For example the entry from Emperor Claudius Rome, in which he turns bluecoats into redcoats (and not in a soft way!). And KingoftheZempk his entry with many cruel things like fish-slapping and throwing fruits and vegetables!

Check out The Execution by Emperor Claudius Rome, Brothers in Arms by KingoftheZempk...

Freelug’s Pirate little diorama by Guss

Friday, July 9th, 2010

A nice diorama, with 2(!) Imperial Flagships!

Guss finally has a new camera and a new job, so now he's ready to be back on Eurobricks! For the occasion, he shows us some pictures of his diorama at Japan Expo 2010, in Paris. It's a very nice one with a strange and funny combination of Space- and PirateLEGO. There are also a lof of fine buildings with great details, and things like spaceships coming out of a rock with forts and houses on top of it. And don't miss the poor guy in the barrel!
