As many of you know, the new Lego House in Billund, Denmark is going to be opening soon. During my very first visit to the home of Lego, I saw the house under construction. Thanks to my loose connections, I was given the opportunity to have a preview of the Lego House. There were two […]

VIDEO: Paredes de Coura Fan Weekend 2016

Better late than never (because of the video editing software) is our slideshow video of this year’s Paredes de Coura Fan Weekend, which took place in Portugal back in June. Similarly to the Bricktastic video, I decided to do a photo slideshow instead of the usual walkthrough style. Video footage from this year’s Brickish Weekend took a long time […]

BRICK 2015 London: the walkthrough

Once again SilentMode.tv (that’s me!) brings you a walkthrough video, this time of the biggest event in the UK this year. This BRICK 2015 walkthrough is of the event at the London ExCeL: there was another event at the Birmingham NEC earlier this year, but I was too occupied to be able to attend that one. There are event videos, and […]

Expect us to make a big impression in 2015, whether with this site or on Project Swapfig. We liked doing last year’s Christmas Party comic strip so much that we came back with another […]

Photos from BRICK 2014

I don’t have much to add to the compliments heaped on the organisers, but I want to give them a shout out for BRICK 2014: easily the biggest event I’ve been to and exhibited at to date. For me it was worth the wait since The LEGO Show in 2012 – just wish I could have […]
