Catzilla Returns - Part 2

Our cat Sophie was always intent on being AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE to whatever we were working on, and that included the Legotown. Sophie has been gone several years now (sadly) but I thought you'd enjoy these pictures of her roaming around scaring minifigs.

Office Tower Grows Up and Up

Years ago, it was decided that the people of Bricksburgh couldn't all be expected to spend their days working as firefighters and police officers (which seem to the majority of Lego careers), so we built an office building for them to work in.
That original office building has since grown.  And grown.  And now it has grown again!
