Support Brick Journal


TwoMorrows publishes BrickJournal, a LEGO focused magazine. They also publish LEGO books and comic related magazines. They have been hit hard by the shutdown. Barnes & Noble stores and comics shops where they sell their products are all shut down. Like the much of the publishing industry, their distributors are shut down. See my previous post about Dynamite books Indiegogo.

They have had to destroy printed copies of their newest issue of BrickJournal. The issues were stuck in shipping, They were sitting in a warehouse and could not be delivered. The publisher would have to pay rent on the issues while the sat there or pay for special delivery. So to save money, those issues were destroyed.

R2-KT and The Child challenge coin


There’s a new R2-KT challenge coin on the way. This one uses a redesign of a patch. The coin displays  R@-KT on onside and the child on the other. Sales of the coin benefit the United Way Covid-19 World Relief Fund. 

The patch was designed to show separation by how we positioned the characters, but the coin makes it even more clear: R2-KT on one side, the Child (aka Baby Yoda) on the other. Separated, but never far apart.

R@_KT and The Child with hearts in between them. Text sasy "hug you I can with the force."

New series Brick Sketches



LEGO has annoucned a new series LEGO Sketches, These were designed by LEGO artist Chris McVeigh. He’s been making these on his site for years. But now are an official set that you can get this summer.

These first sets are BB-8, First Order Stormtrooper, Batman and Joker. I’ll get BB-8 and Batman.

I like how how designed batman grin.

I’ve admired these since I saw the on Chris’ site. They remind me of the old Toys R US build of Captain America set my son made. I toyed around with building my own character portraits like this but never got far. I bought some plates for it and that;s about as far as I got. The Brick Sketches have a better look that this old kit. The blocky look is replaced by a more in depth look. I can’t wait for these.

Quarantine Build #5 Ship in a Bottle


Since I have to stay at home, I’m building some of my sets I haven’t had time to build. Here is build #5.LEGO Ideas 21313 Ship in a bottle. This Ideas set was released in 2018. It was designed by a LEGO fan, other fans voted for it. and LEGO decided to make in into a actual set. It has 963 pieces and retails for $69.99.

It is a challenging set suggested for ages 12+, There a lot of repeated steps, While building the ship you have to flip it from side to side to build. The ship builds rather quickly.

LEGO Sailing ship.

I really like the cannons. They are with only three pieces and are clearly cannons sticking out of a gun port.

LEGO Shipsdie view close up of cannons.

Building the bottle base was challenging cause it’s all clear pieces. I worked on some construction paper so the pieces would stand out against my white desktop. The parts reminded me of shattered safety glass. Safety glass breaks into chucks rather unlike normal glass that breaks into shards.

pile of clear LEGO bricks.

The bottle base took the longest time to build if you don’t get it right, the bottle sides wont fit right.

You build the boat then build the bottle around it. After you build the bottom half if the bottle you attach the ship to it. Then add the sea, which is made of single stud pieces. All of bag 3 is small translucent light blue pieces. There are two  #3 bags. Just dump them into the bottle, On LEGO Masters, Team unicorn used single pieces to make water and the judges didn’t like it. But here it is in a set.

The bottle cork is beautifully designed. The wax seal is very cool. Add the top half of the bottle.  The directions say add the 4 pieces that make up the bottle top to the neck one at a time then connect to the bottom half of the bottle. I found it easier to add the top panels to the bottom them add the neck to the top.

The base includes a compass, 2 globes and a name plate. The base is beautiful, Kind of a shame of it to be hidden under the ship.

Initially I originally thought the ship was too small but once the bottle was built, I realized the bottle was in 1:1 scale of real bottles. With that in mind, he ship was the correct size for a bottle.

Do you have this set? Are you planning on getting it?
