Official LEGO Fidget Spinner Building Instructions

LEGO Fidget Spinner

The current fad, at least here in the US, is fidget toys and fidget spinners. Before the ship has sailed, it appears that LEGO has produced official building instructions for two versions of the toy.

The builds are very similar with no exclusive parts but it depends if you want to hold a turntable piece or a Technic pin. Of course, you can still customize the LEGO Fidget Spinner to your liking.

LEGO 2016 Employee Exclusive 50 Years on Track (4002016) Revealed

LEGO 2016 Employee Exclusive 50 Years on Track (4002016)

Now that Christmas is over, I’ve been waiting a few weeks to post this set since images of it first showed up online but I didn’t want to spoil it for the LEGO employees who haven’t received theirs yet. The 2016 LEGO employee exclusive set is called 50 Years on Track (4002016) and it has a whopping 1,141 pieces. The set celebrates six decades of LEGO trains since it was first released in 1966 and it features six different types of trains through the years including:

Motorized Train Set – 1966
Western Train – 1976
Monorail Transport System – 1987
Metroliner – 1991
Emerald Night – 2009
Winter Holiday Train – 2016

Again, the only legit way to get the 50 Years on Track (4002016) set was to be a LEGO employee which also includes LEGO Brand Store associates but that doesn’t stop it from hitting the secondary market such as eBay where it is going for around $250. For those LEGO employees who kept theirs, congratulations as this is a great set especially for LEGO train fans.

New LEGO Brick Calendar (40172)

It looks like there will be a new LEGO Brick Calendar (40172) that is now being sold over at the UK. Margaret_Bricks over on Instagram has posted images of the front and back of the box. The main difference between this Brick Calendar and the previous one is that the numbers are now brick-built instead of being printed bricks.

No word on availability yet here in the US but I assume it will be available at LEGOLAND and at LEGO Stores in January.
