Day trip inspiration: Oxfordshire. Approximately a 1 hour 20min drive from the middle of the City - and with 25% all bookings until Bank Holiday Monday, why not check out an "iconic part of history". Highlights include Blenheim Palace which is hosting Friends fest. Just have a quick search through the #friendsfest hashtag before and tag some mates to take with you!
Anton from the Old Fishing Store has drifted a little off-course. This looks like the banks of the River Thames! Might as well stop by the @lego store on Leicester square for the opportunity to meet Robert Bontenbal, the Fan Designer of LEGO ideas Old Fishing Store.
Join Anton and get your box signed on 24 August from 1pm to 4pm.

Anyone else seen this image doing the rounds? Another two series of Lego Minifigures announced but not identified. One series featuring 20 Minifigures, as seen with the movie tie-in series and the other with 17, as seen in the "rare, limited edition" series. The former refers to "expanding your Lego Universe" while the latter invites us to "Party". Sounds like the latter may be the anticipated mascot / costumed character party, we're all eager for!
X-25 Gaboon Attack Sled – (⬅️👈 SWIPE LEFT FOR MORE PICS 🛑 !) Created by Bopo Heavy Industries (BHI) this living, breathing machine is a combination of mechanical, electrical and biological components. Fashioned from two living Giant Space Vipers, the X-25 was produced via BHI’s nano-machine experimentation on Planet Z (a lush tropical planet on the edge of the solar system - see my previous post for a full description). Here the released nano-machines parasitically attacked the native Giant Vipers and microscopically fused their flesh together - and after formulating mechanical components from nano-machine amalgamation and environmental ores – knitted their intertwined skeletal systems to synthetic engine parts, windscreens and weapons systems, creating a vehicle that is both animal and apparatus all at once. The X-25 pictured above is piloted by none other than Reptilian Cyborg Bounty Hunter Aeek T-10, he himself created by BHI nano-machine activity on Planet Z. The Gaboon Attack Sled features: A super-efficient 1200 kilowattmethane gas burning, piston driven power plant, fed by the animal’s combined digestive tracts (An X-25 needs to eat twice per year to keep its engine and weapons system online); A tail-mounted, radar driven, Star-Burst Repeating Laser Cannon; A side-mounted(removable) Crystal Mortar Launcher; Reactive armor plating; and Twin biting, poisonous, vertically-mounted, Giant Space Viper heads. The X-25’s unpredictable nature, terrifying appearance, and horrific double low throated hiss, strikes fear in the hearts of most Earth Federation Ground Force Units. Of particular note: The Empire purchased five thousand X-25s and matching T-10 pilots from BHI, placing most of them on the massive sand planet, Aketti 7 to guard the subterranean Empire base buried within fromlocal Alien raiders and external human threats. Here they patrol, feeding occasionally on the endemic 3-foot Giant Land Crabs and the massive Flying Space Roaches.
