Did you notice the LEGO inkwell?

These two bricks combined make a perfect inkwell and quill. 

I got them in the Creator set with the brick-built moose and as far as I know – from a quick research on bricklink – the combination only occurs in one other set: The Elves Starlight Inn (41174). (Please let me know if I’m mistaken!) 

Then I checked what else the “inkwell brick” is used for – Lego must have made it for a reason. It turns out it is frequently used in Friends/Elves/Disney Princess sets for displaying all those accessories for the figures; bows, tiaras etc. They fit in the hole in the hair pieces, but apparently you need somewhere to put them, when they are not used – and that’s where our brick comes in. The Friends Party Gift Store (41113) is a good example:

It’s also been used as side-view mirrors, a lid and a camera lens. A nice little brick in my opinion.

Winter city thoughts.

Today I saw a post on The Brickfan about the new Disney sets, and one caught my eyes.
It was the new Frozen set (41062):

While this, and all the other Disneys set have that major flaw that the figs aren’t minifigs, I actually really like it, and would have no trouble incorporate it in my LEGO Winter town! And seriously who wouldn’t want Olaf in their LEGO Collection?!

And speaking of that; as we are now in October it is time to start thinking about this years winter set up. Last year I took a photo everyday of december to compare the 2012 and 2013 advent calendar. This year I’m thinking about doing it with either the Friends or the Star Wars calendar (the Star Wars mainly because I really want the Santa Clause Darth Vader!)

Here in Denmark we “believe” that Santa Clause is from Greenland (mainly because there is a lot of snow and it would make father christmas Danish!) So I’m hoping to incorporate some sort of Greenland in this years winter set-up! Do any of you have some great ideas for that?

The Lone Ranger

A recent issue of the Danish children’s magazine from Disney, Anders And (Donald Duck), included a Lone Ranger polybag with a ranger minifig and a pump car.

Laura and I went to the cinema with her sister (my sister from another mister 😉 ) to watch the Lone Ranger film – and of course I brought the little guy for a photo shoot!
