Gizmodo had an interesting report with several attached videos that give you an inside look at the Lego Factory and the storage vault where they keep one of every Lego set ever produced.  To view the article go to this link: ------> 80 Years of Lego Models Are Guarded In This Secret Vault

ive been a HUGE lego fan ever since i was a kid, i still by minifigs on a regular basis (for display and for future generations to enjoy playing).
Lego was my first step into modelbuilding, seeing those old boxes from the late80's and early/mid 90's really bring back the best childhood memories.

ok, time to take the legobricks out of the attic  ;D

From Gizmodo ------> "The Legos Whiz Kid" - This 14-Year-Old Kid Is a Lego Genius

Some amazing work by this young lad from the Netherlands.  His diorama is very detailed and it gives me a moment here to consider a new form of camouflage.  Something better than all of the other digital camouflage patterns now available like DigiCam, MultiCam, CadPat, MarPat, and whatever other silly pattern names I have overlooked.  The new camouflage would be called LegoCam or maybe LegoFlage :)
