Mr. Radio is a Lego MOC built by Brohirrim. It was inspired and submitted into the Lego Ideas “Music to our ears!” contest. A challenge to build “anything and everything to do with music” and the top four winners get prizes, and maybe even a chance at a Product Review. This Lego radio is an old cabinet design, with built in speakers and even a surprise or two. The gold colored detailing and the cut out design for the speakers is a really great detail. Even the channel indicator in the center, being a Lego compass, works well. The big secret is the radio lab hidden inside. Where you can go tinker and broadcast all day and night. The front panel opens up and you can even see the backside of the speaker drivers.
Lego Minions are one of the most popular themes for MOCs. Almost everybody seems to like them, and there are a million different ways to build them. So it is no surprise that Lego has officially announced a new Lego Minions Theme. Five sets were revealed at the 2020 New York Toy Fair. The biggest set (and coolest) revealed is 75551 Brick-built Minions and their Lair. It features two substantial brick built minions, Kevin and Stuart. They look great on their own, but they also come with 3 Minion Figures/Minifigures. They also mention that you can rebuild Kevin into Bob, but exactly what is going on is unclear in the photos.
The surprise with this set is that the giant Minions can open up to reveal their hidden lairs/rooms. Kevin opens up into a tall laboratory. Perfect for inventing crazy stuff. While Stuart opens up into a bedroom. Full of toys and games. The new sets also feature Instructions PLUS, a new interactive set of building instructions for your phone and tablet.
