Set # 60107 Review - Fire Ladder Truck

Welcome back to Nothing But Brick! Today, I'll be doing another Lego City review for set # 60107, listed as Fire Ladder Truck. This set was a gift from my sister who's based on Australia with her family. They went home for a month-long vacation last April. I've checked the local toy stores and apparently, this set sells for PHP1,799.00 (roughly USD38.00). This is my first Lego fire truck and I really had a great time building this kit!

Our LUGs Are Here To Stay

I really had a blast at TOYCON PH 2016. It was my first convention and it was indeed a very awesome experience. You can check out my previous entry to see all the good stuff there. What made it even better for Lego fans such as myself was the fact that the local community was well represented at the event. PhLUG and PinoyLUG, the two main LUGs in the country, welcomed TOYCON attendees with their jaw dropping displays. Lead by Lego ambassadors Sir Piper Protacio and Sir Leslie Araujo respectively, the two LUGs both brought their game as they wowed the crowd with their cool MOCs.

This weekend is extra special for me and the waifu since it's our "sweethearts' anniversary" (as my cheesy parents call it) today. We've been together as a couple for 9 years and we've been enjoying life with each other since then. Though we both disagree in a lot of things as normal couples do, we both share a strong passion for toys. We're both kids at heart you see. Just imagine the excitement we both felt when we suddenly found out that we could go to TOYCON PH 2016! We were just planning to stuff our faces in some buffet to celebrate our special day. We ended spending spending most of it at TOYCON! Best anniversary gift to date! Thanks to our friend Paul Chuapoco of Paul The PR Guy for helping us get our day passes. Special thanks to Sir Azrael Coladillo of Azrael's Merryland for accommodating us. We owe you guys one!

Nothing But Brick's Top 5 MOCs At PhLUG's Abrickadabra 2016

Hi, folks! I've been pretty busy with family and work the past two weeks which is why I haven't posted new stuff on the blog. Sorry about that! But don't worry! I already have several entries lined up for this month. Just to give you an idea, I'm currently working on a MOC with a highway chase scene featuring my figs in black suits. It's almost done so I'll be able to do an entry for that soon. I also have two set reviews for Lego City sets coming up. Last but not that least, I'll be doing an entry about me and my wife's awesome TOYCON PH 2016 experience. For now, here's a look at my personal list of top 5 MOCs at PhLUG's Abrickadabra 2016. By the way, these are not arranged in any particular order. Let's get to it!
