The LEGO Ideas project, Jurassic Pack Visitor Center, has hit 10,000 supporters and now moves into the review stage.
LEGO announced recently in its Annual Report for 2015 that the company’s Star Wars themed sets has been one of the best selling themes of 2015. Building on the success of the Star Wars franchise, and the very much welcomed release of Episode VII: The Force Awakens, LEGO continues to introduce more play sets as it revealed in this year’s International Toy Fair in New York.
We can’t seem to get enough of Jason Allemann’s creation – especially right now that LEGO has finally included him among the roster of those blessed brick designers whose work has finally released as an official LEGO Ideas set. Now that Jason’s LEGO Ideas Maze 21305 will be made available on April 1, let’s take a look once again on one of his original JK Brickworks MOC from two years ago – the Ultimate Lego Machine aka the ‘LuuMa EV3’. This is by far the most popular MOC in his YouTube site raking 7.4 million views as of to date.
Based on the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit 31313, the LuuMa EV3 was coined as “undefeatable” – well, in terms of cleverly annoying you that is.
LEGO Group President and CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp was pleased to recently announce that as a result of an impressive 19% sales growth, more and more children can now experience the unique play experience that only LEGO can deliver. In the company’s press release, Knudstorp said, “2015 was a fantastic year for us as a company dedicated to inspire and develop children through play. Across the year we estimate that approximately 100 million children had a LEGO® experience – be it through playing with great LEGO products, in schools via LEGO® Education materials or by participating in local community activities or receiving product donations driven by the LEGO Foundation across the world.”
