Arvo Ford GT Le Mans

The Arvo brothers have created a new cult car, the Ford GT Le Mans. The result speaks for it self. Looking at the pictures I have the impression that it is in fact created with glue and and there is modelling clay inside. In short, it looks good.

Another post without Technic... In my defense let me say that foosball is one of my favorite activities. It could not be better than on this table created by Billy McDill where pirates play against knights Lego Castle.

(I do not think it would withstand the style we play with my colleagues but I have to admit it looks nice and well built.)

Warner Bros. to create a Lego movie

The studio and producer Dan Lin have acquired the rights from the Lego company to create a family movie about Lego. It seems that they are planning a movie similar to Toy Story mixing real and animated elements. The target audience is children but of course the plan is to make it enjoyable by adults as well.
