Delving into the secrets of the bricks...
That is the number of interviews I have now completed since beginning this process around four months ago. I had no idea when I started how many people I was going to get to speak to, but almost every interview inevitably contained a comment about someone else with knowledge of a subject I was interested in. The LEGO Group has been phenomenal, helping to track down and carve out time for each and every person I asked to speak with. I have learned so many amazing secrets about LEGO® bricks. I am transitioning now to turning all that research into the text that will ultimately be The Secret Life of LEGO® Bricks. I cannot wait to dive in. The interview process ended up being far more extensive and expansive than myself or anyone on the team anticipated. Processing through it will take even more time, but it is going to be worth it. I have gotten, not just to peek behind the curtain, but get a guided in-depth tour. The wait is going to be worth it.
LEGO® prototype element and minifigure
Only 500 available.The LEGO Group is offering for the first time ever, a brand-new, specially 3D printed prototype element on which you can give your personal feedback. It comes with its own AFOL-themed minifigure.
Printed in Billund, Denmark, the element is yet to be finalized so it will be a surprise when you receive it, but we can tell you that this isn't something you will have seen before. The element will present a new integrated function as a part of our exploration of new design and play functions. It is the first time the LEGO Group is asking AFOLs and fans to give their thoughts on a specific element while the technology is being developed.Limited to one per household.
