I really prefer opening Advent calendars on weekend days, not having the rush to get out the door for work. This morning, I actually took the time making coffee and then sat down with the calendar. Yesterday's model had been okay, but not as great as many of the earlier days. Would today be different? With great anticipation I opened the lid...
Time flies. December is typically a busy month, and for me it has very much been so far. Still, I'm surprised it is already 6th of December and with this, we are a quarter through the LEGO Harry Potter advent calendar. But what a great start. Will today's model continue to impress?
FRIDAY FEATURE: Once again I'll present to you a Friday Feature of some of the marvelous Harry Potter themed MOCs by the extremely talented LEGO builders around the world.

Wave 2 of the 2019 LEGO Harry Potter sets should be available in shops from today, 1 August (in most parts of the world).

Finally back again posting after a crazy busy period. And finally, I've finished a LEGO creation I started on more than four years ago - modular building scaled version of the Leaky Cauldron. Read on to see the photos of the completed model.
Once I bought a bulk lot of Harry Potter LEGO only to realise that one of the month was in pretty bad shape. Whether forgot in the oven or accidentally misplaced in the fireplace, I don't know, but he looked rather burned. I was about to throw him in the bin when I remembered Dumbledore … Continue reading Marvolo’s ring
Back when the Bricktober Harry Potter pack got revealed a few months ago, I wrote a brief summary of the included figures. Now, at the end of October, I finally got my hands on a physical copy, and I'm really impressed by the quality of the figures. Below a closer look at the individual figures, … Continue reading Bricktober Harry Potter pack review
Sometimes you're in luck! That happened to me last month. Work brought me half-way around the world to stay only 30 minutes from The LEGO Group's headquarters in Billund, Denmark. Long story short, only a few weeks ago I found myself having coffee with Justin Ramsden at the LEGO House.
