The Secret Life of LEGO® Bricks: an update from the Author

Wow, what a crazy and amazing couple of weeks! Years of voting for LEGO® IDEAS submittals had prepared me for a long, slow, climb to fully funded on The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks; I could not have been more wrong. I cannot say thank you enough to the fan community for bringing us across the finish line in just 10 days! You nearly set an Unbound record!

While I certainly did refresh the books page on Unbound nearly constantly throughout the day watching the pledges climb, it wasn’t all I have been up to. In keeping with their promise to provide unprecedented access I went through the process to be granted access to the company’s super exclusive photo archive and let me tell you it is a GOLDMINE. I have only scratched the surface of what is in there and can’t wait to keep digging.

I also had the official kickoff meeting with the LEGO Group via a delightful video conference with the team who is going to be supporting this writing effort from inside the company. We talked about interviews, digital resources and a whole lot more that I am not allowed to talk about or apparently a team of real life LEGO ninjas who are NOT from the NINJAGO universe will come get me.

Stay tuned for more updates soon! Chapter 1 here I come.

Hi Daniel,

I wouldn't call myself and AFOL but I'm definitely keen to hear more about the who, the how and they why of the brick and set design - enjoy your unprecedented access to the archives and bring us back some really special, interesting and unique things!
