I thought whilst I had 5 minutes and before I get around to physically posting last weeks booklego image, I would add some pictures of the latest series of LEGO Minifigures due out on the 1st September 2015. It so happened that whilst I was out and about this evening, I came across some already out for sale in one of my local shops.
Now I’ve been wanting to get a wolf head minifigure for ages, but could never justify buying a Monsters set when they were out purely for the Werewolf minifgure inside one of them. So I’m quite excited to know that I can get my hands on one at a much more reasonable cost. The Monster Scientist reminds me of a minion, I’m going to have to get a Monster Rocker, purely because he looks like someone I once worked with, and I quite like the cheerleaders hairpiece. Other than that I’m not too fussed, but I can see how they will appeal, especially with Halloween looming.
It’s that time of year again, when the local neighbourhood, kids and shops are decorated and costumed up for Halloween. Halloween for kids means trick or treat. It’s no different for the Lego minifigure kids either. Have a happy, safe and spooky Halloween!
You know you live in a house that loves LEGO, when your youngest child asks for a Minifigure head as a pumpkin design. However they weren’t content with one similar to the one the Workmen created last year 😉
The workmen were scarily good at pumpkin carving
Not at all, they wanted a complete 3D design out of the entire pumpkin. Trust me peeling an entire pumpkin is hard work. However I have to say after that it wasn’t too hard, just time consuming. The best and worst part was trying to scoop some of the insides out via the eyes and nose. It really did look like it’s brain was oozing out.
I was planning on taking it a step further, with a little extra design on the back of the head, but by then my enthusiasm was waning, so I may save that for another year.
As I was busy carving a pumpkin out for the kids today, the minifigs decided why shouldn’t they have some fun as well. I might just have to employ them next time to help with the kids. I do have to say I prefer theirs to the one I did.
To be fair we are not big Halloween celebrators, I prefer bonfire night myself, so pumpkin carving is about as far as we go. Even the kids aren’t that fussed with dressing up for the parties they have at youth groups they go to.
So from myself and the minifigs, we will wish everyone a happy Halloween.
Try saying the title to this post quickly over and over again. lol
Ok I know Halloween isn’t until the middle of next week, but to make this weeks project 52 photo just right, it needed a bit of atmospheric dry ice. And it just so happened that I had to have a delivery yesterday that contained dry ice as part of it’s packaging. And I’d have not been able to keep it frozen safely until next week, so we are having the Halloween theme this week instead.

When I was at school, as part of English lessons we had to study a piece of Shakespeare. Our group got given Macbeth to do. Although during the read through I had to read Banquo’s lines, I’ve always liked the part of the 3 witches who open the play with…….
