    A genuinely interesting presentation from senior Lego designer Jamie Berard held at Brickcon 2006 that discusses the 'legality' of some brick to brick connections

    Well, I liked it anyway...

    Hmm, not sure it's genuinely interesting or not, think I would agree with all of them though. I think if you're a Lego freebuilder you would know all that anyway.

    I'll pass that document on to all the children I know! :D

    Jamie Berard is my favourite Lego designer BTW. He's behind most of the original Lego modulars.

    The story towards the bottom of the document is very interesting.

    This model was released as a promotional set for the opening of
    Legoland Germany. It is suppose to be an Audi TT. In addition to its
    unorthodox and difficult build, it forces elements into unnatural
    connections causing them to be permanently damaged. It was
    packaged with only a single picture and no building instructions.
    As a direct result of this set, all models now produced by the LEGO
    Group must go through the Design Department. This ensures that
    nothing gets released without first being approved by a Model
    Committee. Sometimes lasting up to 2 or 3 days, this review allows
    representatives from building instructions, senior designers, engineers
    and the designer sit down together and build the model. The goal is
    to maintain an ‘only the best is good enough’ approach to our design
    process. A final heat test then highlights further weaknesses that
    must be changed before the set can be launched out onto the market.

    Built the '89 Batmobile over the weekend. It's genuinely stunning. Great build, it's huge, and it looks fantastic. Highly recommended.

    I'd love that Batmobile. Have you got the Tumbler too by any chance?

    Lego finally shipped the batch of replacements parts I've ordered for the UCS Millennium Falcon (I don't know why it took them 2 weeks to do so..?), so once that arrives I can crack on with the remainder of the build!

    Can't wait :)

    Needs a team of micro figures to go with the stadium! Can’t say I’m interested in football related Lego..

    Half way through the Saturn V rocket, very cool, will look nice next to the Lunar Lander.
