This Lego MOC is called “Who is better at swimming?” and is created by brickmodified. This build has a really interesting way of creating water. Something that can show how people can get creative. Here a bunch of 1×1 round cylinders have been turned on horizontally and laid out to represent water. Every four studs they are separated by blue and red worm screw pieces. From the platform three competitors are getting ready to battle it out in the water. The human will probably win easily, and the shark-suit person, and penguin-suit person will probably need to be saved. Those wet suits will probably be a bit heavy. This 16×16 stud scene is a perfect example of the humor in Lego. A neat thing is that this Lego swim meet has been displayed at Lego House in Denmark.
Lego has a super rare set out now called The Lego House (4000010) Special Edition. The set is designed to fit in with the Architecture theme, but is not officially a part of it. What makes this a Special Edition is that it is only sold in Billund, Denmark. Which is the upcoming location of The Lego House. The set is 250 pieces and sold for 149 DKK, which is currently about $27.50.
The Lego House is currently being built in Billund, which is where the Lego Group was founded in 1932. The building will be part museum, and part educational experience (and I’m sure part gift shop).
CopMike has recently gotten their hands on The Lego House, and posted a full review over on Eurobricks. The set comes with a perfect-bound soft-cover instruction manual, an exclusive (boring) Minifigure, and a bunch of white and trans-clear parts. In fact, two new 1×1 trans clear flat tiles. The final set is not the most exciting, but the limited availability and exclusive Minifig help make up for the design.
