60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) Winner Announced

Last month, I ran a contest for a chance to win the 60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) set. There were over 7,000 entries and I’ve randomly chosen the winner and that person is:

Jesus P.

I’ve contacted the winner to get their shipping details. Sorry about the late post about this but I didn’t forget about you guys. With all the issues of Toys R Us and the closing announcements, I’ve been busy dealing with that for the past few weeks and trying to figure out my next steps. I will also be announcing the winner(s) of The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure Vignette Building Competition in the next day or so stay tuned for that. I think there were some very creative builds for that contest.


LEGO Ranked Number 2 on 2018 Global CSR RepTrak 100

LEGO has been announced as the second-most highly regarded company in the world on the 2018 RepTrak 100 survey. The Reputation Institute has annually done the survey in which LEGO ranked first last year but dropped just one spot this year which shows you how much the public still likes the company in terms of emotional appeal. This year also marks the eighth year in a row that LEGO has been in the top 10 on the survey. Check out the press release below.

BILLUND – March 15, 2018: Today, Reputation Institute released the annual RepTrak®100 survey. The LEGO Group maintains its rank from last year as the second-most highly regarded company in the world when it comes to corporate reputation.

Chief Executive Officer of the LEGO Group, Niels B. Christiansen, commented on the results:

“We are very happy and humbled to maintain such high regard by the public. It reflects the unique LEGO® idea and values, and the dedication our employees show every day to bring LEGO play to children all over the world. It is truly an honour to be embraced by the level of affinity that LEGO fans of all ages show us.”

“Since the LEGO brick was patented 60 years ago, we have been committed to inspiring and developing the builders of tomorrow. Our ambition to reach more children with LEGO experiences is more important than ever, and our purpose is what drives us and keeps us on our toes. What is truly important about this ranking is what lies behind it; that children and parents all over the world understand and acknowledge our aim to positively impact the world for future generations, and to deliver play experiences that help children develop those essential skills they need for the future.”

The RepTrak®100 study developed by Reputation Institute measures the corporate reputation of 100 companies by asking the public in 15 countries questions about the emotional appeal of each company. The study scores the companies on seven dimensions: Products & Services, Innovation, Workplace, Governance, Citizenship, Leadership and Performance.

Stephen Hahn-Griffiths, Executive Partner and Chief Research Officer at Reputation Institute commented on the ranking:

“As an organization that embraces corporate social responsibility from top to bottom, the LEGO Group ranked second based on our global RT100 Reputation Institute survey with a pulse score of 77.9 – it was the only global company to earn a strong score on the measures of Citizenship and Governance.”

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition (76105) Designer Video

LEGO has just released the designer video for the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition (76105) which comes a few weeks after the set became available. I still don’t understand why LEGO is releasing the videos after the set are already available and not the day of or before. The video features LEGO designers Justin Ramsden and Adam Corbally who talk about some of the features of the set.

The Hulkbuster is available again on [email protected] after being on backstock for a few days after its release a few weeks ago. Now is a good time to pick it up if you’ve been waiting on it because of the double VIP points promotion that’s currently going on.


Build Your Own LEGO Wooden Duck with JK Brickworks

Some of the younger generation don’t know that LEGO started out as a wooden toy company before they transitioned into the LEGO bricks we know today. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick, JK Brickworks has built his own version of the classic wooden duck using modern bricks and he has also provided the building instructions including the parts list consisting of a moderate 377 pieces. If you watch the video below, you can see the duck in motion with the opening and closing mouth feature. Of course, you can also change the colors to your liking.


Avengers: Infinity War Final Trailer Released

Marvel has released the highly anticipated final trailer for Avengers: Infinity War and it looks very epic. We can see some new scenes that we haven’t seen before and we can somewhat correspond them to some of the LEGO sets that have been released already.

Note that Hawkeye still hasn’t made an appearance in the trailers or promotional products so I assume he’ll be used similar to how Spider-Man was used in Captain America: Civil War.

The movie will premiere in theaters on April 27 but you can now pick up the sets on [email protected] and on Amazon
