OUR NEW ETSY STORE: BRICKZ.Art ETSY store link
Let me allow to introduce you the new Spring 2017 LEGO Batman Necklace collection available in our NEW Brickz.Art shop on Etsy. Finally after weeks of preparation we opened the store to world during today's sunny day and we hope you will like it. :-)
When I saw the new LEGO Batman Movie I particularly liked the scene where the Batman is choosing from his collection of different styled Batman outfits. It inspired me to create different designs of Batman's helmet. I know that some of them are a bit "crazy", but I guess that the Batman in the movie was a bit crazy too. :-)
Batman's head is hand painted by me with 3 layers of UV protection clear coat, so the longevity of the paint is secured. I came up with a few different designs and so far we have made 12 of them.

What all can you do with LEGO Mindstorms ?


I remember my first encounter with LEGO Mindstorms very clearly and it was everything but not a pleasant experience. Not because I would be disappointed or unimpressed by the theme. Rather the complete opposite. :-) I will explain it ...
It was a complete coincidence and it happened when I visited a brick event in Prague lately. First, it's important to say that I am terribly afraid of snakes. So when I was walking around the hall full of LEGO and suddenly saw a moving snake in the glass display just next to me ... You know what happened - I was running away as fast as I could from the display.

I am sure that I have scared or at least amused some people around. :-) It scared me so much that it took me some time to realise that it is not a real snake but a very real looking brick replica powered by LEGO Mindstorms toolkit.

And so begun my acquaintance with the LEGO Mindstorms ... :-)

Fortunately, there was not only the moving snake but also more friendlier LEGO Mindstorms creations which I was not afraid to approach closer to see what all they can do.

There was a machine programmed to pick some objects and move them from one place to another or a strong robot with whom I would not want to engage in fight ...

But the LEGO Mindstorms I saw at the event was just the beginning. Later back home I was googling a bit and discovered a huge number of very cool youtube videos of different LEGO Mindstorms MOCs.
There are my favourite videos:

These videos make me think about buying the toolkit too and try to program something similar by myself. However, nothing as big and difficult as in the videos and definitely no snakes. :-)

What do you think about LEGO Mindstorms ? Is it something what interest you ?

I will be very happy if you let me know in comments below.


71042 - The Silent Mary - The Most Beautiful LEGO ship of all time ?


Almost every year since 2009 LEGO has released at least one sailing ship. If you are thinking about buying one there are quite a few to choose from. Last week, LEGO added one more to its flotilla - The Silent Mary, a beautiful (but a bit scary) ship that appeared in Pirates of Caribbean movie. Definitely one of the most beautiful ships released by LEGO so far, in my opinion.
 
If you are fascinated by LEGO sailing ships it is good to know that their price used to rise sharply as time passed so there is no reason to hesitate with purchase. I guess that the new The Silent Mary will not be an exception and will provide a pretty nice return as the rest of the flotilla.

And which one out of the 8 ships released since 2009 is the most beautiful ? Is it The Silent Mary ? To help you decide which one might become your favourite, I have put together my list that highlights all such ships.
