Closing Time...

Well, it's that awful time of year again, the time were your life is filled with stress and work. Yes, it is the final exam period and like millions of other students in high school, I have to start studying as much as possible, which means no more fun until the last moment in school.

This means that I have to stop making posts and videos on the blog for almost a month. No more Lego for awhile... :( I should be starting posting again around June 20 or 21. I can't wait for it to be all done.

And now, I wish good luck to all of you in the same situation as me. Remember, you are not the only one going through this hard period. Also, remember once it will be over, the world will be a happy place again. So good luck to you and have lot's success in your exams. I can't wait for it to be over. Good luck to all of you!

Let's Talk About The End - Lego Minecraft

Hellego! As you probably know, up to know, Lego has released three Lego Minecraft sets. The original one from Cuusoo, simply called Minecraft Micro World, there is also the Village Micro World and the Nether Micro World.

Now, on June 1st, Lego will be releasing a new micro world: The End. The set will be priced like all the other ones between 35$ to 40$. For those of you who may not know, in the Minecraft video game, The End is a world you travel to after many steps in the game. There is the Ender Dragon that you have to beat and this place is a floating island in an empty void populated by Endermen. Once you manage to kill the dragon, you beat the game. Now obviously, this is not a place where you go very often in the game. In fact, a big part of the people who play the game have never even managed to get there.

Now the set will feature of course the Lego micro version of this world, the Ender Dragon and three or four Endermen. It's not yet clear how many Endermen there will be because on the box you see four, but in the picture of the Micromobs there are only three. I think it is very exciting to be getting Endermen as new Micromobs since they are very popular mobs in the video game. It's also nice that we will be getting multiple Endermen with the set.

I think this set looks really cool! It represents very well The End world from the game and the Ender Dragon looks very cool. The fact that you get Endermen is also very nice. Although as cool as it looks, I think the actual Micro World looks a bit boring. There are the big pillars a couple of hills and not much underground. If you compare it to the original Minecraft Micro World set, it had caves, trees, different types of land, sand, water, lava, different rocks in the underground caves, a cabin, etc. There was simply much more to it.

So overall, I think it's very cool that we are getting a new Micro World set and I hope it will not be the last. The Micromobs in the set look great and the world itself is very well represented. I just think that the world isn't as varied or exciting as for example the Village or the original set. But again, I am happy Lego is releasing another Micro World and I think they did a good job.

What do you think of this set? Are you excited for it? Let me know in the comment section!

Lego Minifigures Online Video Game News Update

Hellego! After not hearing much about the upcoming Lego Minifigures Online game, we finally have new info! If you do not know much about this game, check out the post I made about it a while back!

It has now been announced that the open beta for this game will be available this June, 2014! This is great news because if it is starting the beta stage, it means that the game is advanced in the development process. Those that are excited for the game will finally be able to get a taste. The developing company Funcom also stated that the game will launch as Free-To-Play this fall! This is very exciting as in my last post, I was not sure if it was going to be free-to-play or not. This also means that the game should be fully released this year and not in 2015.

In the article from Funcom, they also wrote that the June issue of the Lego magazine will feature a whole page about the game. Lego magazine readers will be able to vote which free exclusive minifigure they will recive with a special code in the September issue. The minifigure will only available to those with a code.

This is very exciting news to hear! I'm glade we are finally hearing more about the game. What do you think? Are you excited for this game? Leave a comment!

A Surprising Kight Fight - A Lego Stop Motion

Hellego! Here is a short stop motion I made this weekend. It's about two knights fighting and something unexpected happens. Enjoy!

Lego Cuusoo is now Lego Ideas

Hellego! One of the big news in the Lego world this week is that Lego Cuusoo is now called Lego Ideas. The website also has a complete new design to it and new features that should interest you.

Now, do not worry about the ideas you already posted while it was still called Cuusoo. Every thing is linked to your Lego ID so when you login to your account on the new website, there should not be a change in your projects. There is also a new point system containing clutch power, prizes and rewards.

The more you participate on the website, the more you get clutch power points. If you are very active, the number will go up. If you do not visit for awhile, the number of clutch power will go down. You can also get badges that are achievements you get after crossing a new milestone. For example, you can get the Autobiographer badge when you complete your profile and the 1k Club badge when one of your projects hits 1000 supporters. You can not lose your badges. There are also prizes and awards you can get if your idea becomes a product that were already there during the "Cuusoo time". You get 1% of the total sales profit, you get 5 copies of the set when it starts selling and you get credit and bio in the set as the creator.

That covers pretty much all the new changes. I personally like the new Lego ideas site. It has a fresh design and it's relatively easy to navigate. Although to me, it will always be called Lego Cuusoo ;) What do you think of this change? Leave a comment!
