Buying matchy matchy bags 💓
Yard sales were slim pickings today, but any time I can find Lego minifigures, I’m super happy. Especially when they are older pieces and were ‘mix and match’! I was able to get parts I needed— Chewbacca! Snapes head! Headdresses! Ron’s rat Scabbers! Anyone know who the beard goes to? I thought Gimli from LOTR, but his beard has braids. #516vintagefinds #afol #adultfanoflego #harrypotterlego #lego #legoidentificationhelp
Minifig Spotlight: Race Car Guy. The unofficial mascot of @carsandbricks
, Race Car Guy is clearly one of our favorites. The name and attire make him very attractive to an Instagram account focused on toy cars and LEGO, but it’s the car piece that pushes him over the top. There are so many creative uses for that piece—from coin-operated kids’ ride to go karts. We know you see a lot of Race Car Guy around here, but we figured you could use a few more pics of him. 😉
Minifig Spotlight: Blacktron 2. A member (and possibly the only one) of space baddies Blacktron, this minifigure appeared in 15 sets from 1991 to 1993. Conspiracy theorists would say the Blacktron army is made up entirely of clones. Either that or this minifig is very good at being in multiple places at the same time. Sometimes he’s commanding a Blacktron operations base and other times he’s a prisoner of the Space Police. Over the years, he and his buddies (or twins, or clones, or whatever) provided quite the mischief across the LEGO Space theme.
Minifig Spotlight: Draco Malfoy. Draco is no stranger to minifigure form. This is the 10th minifig representation of the young Malfoy and the fourth version in his Quidditch gear. The shorter legs this time around give this Draco a younger look. The hair has also gone from a light tan/beige to more of a yellow. The best part of this minifigure might actually be an accessory—the golden snitch. The snitch piece is new and also comes with 75956 Quidditch Match, which this Draco minifig is a perfect compliment to.
Maul's New Speeder: Dino Test
Have finally purchased some Lego railway track... "But afol_1984"... I hear you cry... "Why on earth did you by that?"... Well I'll tell you. It's for a special project I have in the pipeline relating to a certain special time of year. 2018 is going to see something very different to my last two projects which were pretty similar although the 2nd one was bigger. This time I want to do something new, something based upon a concept that are enjoyed by many families who love visiting heritage railways especially at this particular time of year I'm referring to, these events are often the most popular here in Britain. Kids especially love these events most of all. Any how I'm in the planning stages but I have everything I need to make it work, including one very special Lego set that I purchased back in 2009... Watch this space for updates. 😄😄😄
