Year end Review: Favorite Builds


It is the end of the year so here’s a quick look and my favorite builds of the year.

LEGO Cuusoo Back to Future DeLorean.

This is the first Cuusoo project I supported that was made into a set. I got it the day it was released. There were a couple problems with the build but it’s an great set. The minifigs are well done with a layered looked to the clothes.

bttf_flying bttf2_21103   My Favorite set of the year The Hobbit: An Unexpected Gathering (79003). The set was released at the end of 2012 but I didn’t get it till 2013. It was the first of The Hobbit sets and still my favorite. It’s Bagend the home of Bilbo Baggins. The set did not disappoint. Bag End is a Beautiful build.

I plan to do a list of my favorite minifigs of 2013 plus finish the tale of the K-mart Medusa. I’m also sure wordpress will send me my year end stats soon. I’ll add my thoughts about those too. It’s been a busy year for the blog featuring LEGO, Star Wars, and Minions.  Dec 2013 has been the busy month ever for the blog.A new record for views and just a couple days to see how far we can push that record.

Thank you all for the great year.
