Is This the Droid You Are Looking For?

Okay, we've seen this truck before, but what is it carrying?   I wandered across this unusual payload the other day when we were shooting the harbor video.
Can you make out what it is?   Click through for a better shot of it.

Everything is Awesome!

Last weekend, FINALLY, the whole family made a rare trip to the movie theater to see...  yep, you guessed it.  The Lego Movie!
So what did we-- the owners of think about the Lego Movie's "Bricksburg"?
I'm glad you asked-- and you're safe, NO SPOILERS ahead:

Walk This Way

Around here we're pretty pro-Physical Therapists.  If your body is broken and it needs to be rehabilitated, find yourself a good PT!  But what does it look like when a minifig breaks a leg??

Preview of Our New Harbor

Greetings Bricksburghers!
After a long hiatus, the harbor complex is returning to Bricksburgh.  You'll recall that it one of the few remaining "unfinished" areas of the new town (the other being the neighborhood).  Truly no Lego city is ever FINISHED, but I think you know what we mean.
If you can ignore the "construction" we'll take a quick preview tour around the complex.

Failure to Yield

As you may have read earlier, we had some car crash drama in our household recently.  Someone rear-ended one of our cars at a stop sign.  No one was hurt and our car has since been repaired, but it seemed like as good a time as any to show you some pictures of a recent chain reaction crash.   Tyler took all these pictures-- they were a complete surprise to me when I emptied the camera card!  He tells a great little story though...  as I think you'll agree:

Uh-oh...  something has happened here for sure!

Top Lug

We're big fans of BBC's "Top Gear" and have been enjoying their return to television this month.  Those of you who watch/look closely will often see white Stig or black Stig lurking in the background of our videos and pictures.   In honor of TG's superb 2nd episode of this season (which was much better than the 1st, happily), here's a clearer look at the long-gone black Stig.
I'm not sure if he's waiting for that bus or if he's waiting for a race car.  He's standing right outside the pit garages of our Speedway complex.  OH!  I just had an idea...

Safe Harbor

We're still running pretty light on posts/videos, but that doesn't mean we're not working hard for you!  One of the last remaining large projects for the new Bricksburgh is the rebuilding of its industrial might-- namely, the harbor complex.  It will pay homage to its previous versions, which you can find pictures of on this blog, but is also expanding quite dramatically.  Pictures and such will be coming... but for now, here's a preview:
