The popular Lego collectible minifigures are back in September 2013 with Series 11. It’s hard to believe there have been 176 unique minifigs! The collectible series has brought new accessories, faces, hair pieces, and themes to the world of Lego since its introduction a few years ago. Each new series brings rumors and speculations before they are formally announced. Which minifig is your all-time favorite? What minifig would you like to see the Lego company create?

While I’ve been searching all over for the elusive Mr. Gold, 2 of only 5,000 of these chrome minifigs were found by one man in the Washington, DC area. After fetching up to $1,000 on eBay and a retail price of around $3, buying a Mr. Gold is probably one of the best investments anyone can make. Imagine how much they’ll be worth in a few years! What do you think of Lego’s decision to produce only 5,000 of the Mr. Golds? Have you found one? Would you sell yours for $1,000? Leave your comments below.
Watch this video from Brick Show News for proof of the lucky man’s find.
My first exhibit for my Legoland Zoo was created because BrickFair Alabama 2013‘s theme was “Birds.” I only had a month to build, but I think the end result was worth it — winning a “Best Birds” trophy! The exhibit is named after Jorgen Vig Knudstorp, the current CEO or the Lego Group. It features 7 different types of birds, each with their own placard. There’s a zoo keeper giving a show with one of the macaws! This will be part of a much larger zoo with over 20 different exhibits. Tell me what you think of my bird exhibits in the comment section below. More photos on my Flickr.
A student in Palmer, MA got detention when he brought a minifig-sized Lego gun to school. After the six-year-old brought the quarter-sized “gun” on a school bus, he was forced to write a letter of apology to the bus driver. He may also face temporary suspension from the bus.
I understand that we don’t want kids to bring guns to school, but I don’t understand how a quarter-sized plastic toy that could never fire a bullet can be considered a weapon! Do you think the school system overreacted or did they do the right thing?

The world’s largest Lego model ever made is a life-size Star Wars X-Wing Fighter replica. It was unveiled this month in New York’s Times Square. The best part, is that the model itself looks like it’s made from giant Lego bricks, but it’s not — it’s made from regular Lego bricks! How many pieces do you think it took to make it?
