UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: December 2016

It’s the December 2016 episode of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas. Once again it’s your host SilentMode, hopefully aiding some more LEGO Ideas projects in their quest for 10,000 supporters. Once again I’ve missed the deadline for this edition, but I hope you’re having a Happy New Year so far. Preamble Here in the UK, allegedly as […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: November 2016

Welcome to another edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, exclusive to SilentMode.tv: the world’s most obscure LEGO fan site. I’m your host, and this is my first post on the site in a long time. It’s also our first UNDERATED post that’s on time for quite a while. Preamble I’ve seen quite a few people complaining about how rotten […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: October 2016

Welcome to another edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, exclusively on SilentMode.tv and with your host, yours truly. Unfortunately this edition is again later than usual, because of various other things that came up. Preamble This month’s preamble was going to expand a little more on my indefinite abstinence from events, and the parallels between exhibiting at […]

No Events (For Me) in 2017.

Hello folks. This post serves as my announcement that the rumours are indeed true… This year’s Great Western Brick Show was my last event of 2016, and for the foreseeable future. I won’t be exhibiting at or attending any events at all, at least until 2018. What happened? Since the weekend of the Great Western Brick Show, I’d […]

Beyond The Brick’s BRICKLIVE Crowdfunding Campaign

Beyond The Brick is at it again, and this time they’re crowdfunding for coverage of the upcoming BRICKLIVE event in Birmingham. This is going to be their first time covering an event outside of the States on DVD, which makes it something special.

SilentMode’s Predictions: LEGO Ideas Second 2016 Review

With the surprise announcement of the next LEGO Ideas set last week, it’s time for my predictions on which project in the Second 2016 Review will succeed. If the last review has taught us anything, it’s that literally anything can happen. I myself have made the mistake of thinking that LEGO would continue the “safe” trend, as […]

The Beatles Yellow Submarine Announced.

Check out the official post over on the LEGO Ideas weblog. The design of the submarine has been greatly improved from the original, with a very pleasant combination of Yellow, Bright Light Orange and Orange parts. It also looks like it’s going to make use of all printed parts, just like the Caterham 7. Apart […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: September 2016

Welcome to the belated September edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: exclusive to the world’s most taboo LEGO fan site, SilentMode.tv. This edition is late primarily because last weekend was the Great Western Brick Show, and I was feverishly trying to build and repair the new and improved Mascoteers mini site that nobody visited in the end. Preamble Speaking of the Great […]

Great Western Brick Show (STEAM) 2016 Slideshow

Thanks to crappy upload speeds, it took almost two whole days to upload. But it’s finally here: our slideshow video of this year’s Great Western Brick Show (otherwise known as STEAM). As is typical, I haven’t gotten any feedback whatsoever on whether the slideshow format works, or if video footage is more appropriate. Bearing in mind the […]

Old Fishing Store: The Next LEGO Ideas Set

The results are in for the First 2016 LEGO Ideas review, as posted about earlier today. I think the outcome surprised us all, and certainly me… The Old Fishing Store by RobenAnne was chosen as the next LEGO Ideas set, and becomes the first building to accomplish the mean feat. Even though there were a couple of […]
