Those would be such small pieces, but so worth it!

That was really cool. I was hoping they'd have the circular glass room that Thor gets trapped in, though.

The Helicarrier has been a part of Marvel lore since the '60s. Way before Sky Captain tried it.

Looks like we may see a Wall E piece may happen and a Doctor Who set will happen at some point in the future.

Poor piano.  You are up against famous things.

Also, I love hearing people who are basically fluent in English occasionally mispronounce things just slightly.

Why is "Lego Ideas" all about using other peoples' ideas?

Have any of you seen "The Brick" a gallery of LEGO art? It's magnificent. I saw it at the Philadelphia Art Museum. It's three dimensional Lego sculptures and two dimensional "paintings" (like the Mona Lisa rendered in bricks which is like pixels, from a distance it looks like the real painting, but close up you can see the multi-coloured bricks that make it up.)

It's much better than anything you saw at the Lego Store [tm] in Disney...

I haven't seen that. Sounds cool. I have seen the full scale Lego Liberty Bell in the Philly Airport.

Darth, I have seen that liberty bell, as well.

"The Brick" is on tour so it may make it to many of your local museums in the next few months.
