LEGO Star Wars Diorama at LEGOLand Germany

According to the news report here (translated), LEGOLand Germany will have a special diorama section in Miniland devoted to LEGO Star Wars. Not only that, but it seems that it will be at minifig scale instead of the usual miniland scale. The new section is scheduled to open in June 2011.

Thanks to minicoop for the news!

The Passing of a Legend: Dan Jezek

I just found out that the owner and founder of Bricklink has passed away, Daniel Jezek. Probably one of the greatest assets to the community, it’s hard to imagine what the community would be like without Bricklink. No other site has had such a profound impact helping AFOLs and TFOLs alike realize their dreams in LEGO form. My heart is heavy this day.

Bricklink will continue to operate by his surviving family and the existing site administrators will continue in their respective roles. For more information, you can view the Dan Jezek page on Bricklink.

[UK] 50% off at Sainsburys & 25% off Toy Story at Argos

A couple more UK sales to tempt you out of your hard earned moolah … with 25% off Toy Story toys at Argos and Sainsbury’s having a 50% sale on all Toys.

Now, on that last one, Sainsbury’s did this last year and most Lego went immediately out of stock on their website, so you’ll need to take pot luck on what’s in your local store.  Please also keep in mind that Sainsbury’s often set their prices higher than the RRP so the potential savings might not be quite as good as think, even with 50% off!
