    There is a wide range of skin tones. Any colour you could imagine basically. Plus different expressions and special prints

    Ahh cool. I want to get a few make-your-own figures representing people for Christmas.

    Anyone know if they have those selections in the Lego store in Westfields in W.London?

    Hopefully I'll have some cash for my bday at the end of Jan, coz I got this in "mind" - LEGO Mindstorms

    Actually came down to 100 recently at Argos, but shot back up in no time :-(

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    Anyone that buys Lego in Hamleys needs their head reading. Fucking robbing prices, sets I noticed were 50% more than Toys R Us.

    I know it's a tourist attraction and it's central London yadda yadda, but c'mon !
    To be fair, that is their market. Tourists and rich fuckers. Not that he sets the prices, and despite being a flag ship store, Hamley's is a tiny proportion of Lego's sales across the uk

    Lego prices are pretty insane in general if you ask me.

    FCUTA!

    There is also that the Toys 'R' Us' in London are all difficult to reach whereas Hamleys is just off Oxford Street.

    Just before Christmas, the Telegraph Motoring section reveiwed the new Lego Unimog kit.

    They put this video up of it being built.

    "I'll have that done in about 4 hours!" said Mr Editor...

    Oh no you won't!

    The memories!

    I was lucky enough that for Christmas one year Santa saved real hard and got me the first LEGO mindstorms kit. I remember being convinced it was way too expensive for my parents to get it for me.

    It was the perfect amalgamtion of my love of Lego, Robots and computery things. Nerd heaven.

    Speaking of Lego Miondstorms has everyone seen this video, it's pretty impressive.

    I was reading up on using the .Net framework to program the Mindstorms kit - there's a great tutorial on Channel9. You can basically control your Robot with your Xbox 360 controller. Then slap on a bluetooth webcam sending images to an android tablet, and you've got a "IRL FPS".

    Some people have far too much time on their hands if they're able to design, build and program something like that.

    How I wish I was one of them!

    I remember the first proper Technic set I got - was that yellow hydraulic dumper truck :) Can still remember how good it felt to get all the hydraulics working properly.

    Surely not on the original RCX block with its wonderful 32k of memory!

    I'm very tempted to dig it out and start fiddling around again, though I'm not sure I even still have the infrared legoblock/data transmitter.

    I got the first MINDSTORMS kit for my 30th birthday.
    Best present ever. I had so much fun with that. It was during my single years as well. Used to build robots and program them until the sun came up.

    I was blody serious about it too. Had one navigate by means of "lighthouses". Made another one that turned my NGC on and off if I flashed a light at it.

    Holy SHIT! The latest Lego Technic sets are awesome! I'm very tempted to order the Unimog and Supercar as a post-Christmas treat for me and my dad.

    Loved Lego Technic back in the day...

    *sigh*

    It was all voluntarily. Naturally.
    I mean, who wouldn't want a man that can turn his game cube off with a flashlight?

    I've still got the blue Technics rally car, mostly in one piece. Some of the bits have come loose and disappeared into the pile but that thing has only been rebuilt once, not long after being received for a present back in the 80s.

    Marvel Superheroes look suitably pants.

    LotR Sets look good

    Yeah, my 3 year old got the new Batman from his Gran that looks similar to the marvel sets. It's not really "Lego" though as I know it. Anyway, he's back to making "droids" with the pieces from the Star Wars Advent Calendar.

    Superman comes with a cool Mecha. And I saw that there will be a cool samurai mecha with one of the new Ninjago sets.

    I love Lego, I haven't played with mine foe a while, only because of School and other things going on in my life, But from time to time I do like playing with them to bring back all those memories of child hood.

    My friend is taking his son to that same LEGO world thing in CPH and I'm so jealous. Can't wait for Kid A to grow old enough to appreciate something like that.

    The Slave 1 ship is really cool. Boba Fett makes for a great mini fig.

    This upcoming Jabba Palace is drool worthy.

    Ha! Slave 1 is the set my boy wants for his birthday in March. He's obsessed with bounty hunters. He actually likes Jango Fett Slave 1 ship more - it's got some great minifigures like Dengar, IG-88 etc, but the thing is about 160 - not gonna happen.
