LEGO grows up: Ages 6-11 and Unlimited Potential

LEGO grows up: Ages 6-11 and Unlimited Potential

Upon learning I'd be heading to New York City this past month, the first thing I did was to seek out the local LEGO store.

LEGO Breaking Bad and Shaun of the Dead sets appear aside new Movie figs

This week at SXSW the LEGO presentation team have showed off and mentioned several new sets for the near future. In addition to suggesting that they’ll have more LEGO Movie sets in the near future, they’ve given glimpses of in-movie "history books" and Taco Tuesday.
