PhLUG's MOCers Workshop

One of the perks of being a member of PhLUG is you get to attend workshops where noob builders like me get to learn neat stuff from the veteran MOCers of the group. I got to attend 2 out of 3 sessions this year and both focused on urban or city building. I really learned a lot from these activities and I actually look forward to the next one. Check out some of the techniques I picked up.

Nothing But Brick's Top 5 MOCs @ PinoyLUG's Bricktober 2017

Hi, folks! For this entry, I'll be featuring the top 5 MOCs at PinoyLUG's Bricktober 2017, which was held last October at the Promenade Hall in Greenhills. As expected, PinoyLUG, in collaboration with AFOLMNL and Pinoy Bricksters, brought their A game as they shared their love for the brick with their jaw-dropping displays.

Arthur Tanseco's Voltes V MOC

My siblings and I were huge fans of Voltes V when we were growing up. I remember faithfully watching the series back in the '90s, trying not to miss a single episode. Several localized versions of the highly influential super robot series were shown in local channels then. There were English and Filipino dubs where names of the characters were changed to make them more relatable to the local audience. The show actually influenced several generations of Filipinos particularly the kids who lived during the Martial Law era giving them ideas like oppression ain't cool and freedom is something worth fighting and even dying for.

A Look At Lego's Ninjago Minifigure Series

The Lego Ninjago movie just hit the screens a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, the fambam and I were unable to catch it due to conflicts in our schedules. Despite not seeing the movie, I made it a point to get myself a complete set of Lego's Ninjago Minifigure Series. Honestly, I'm not really a fan of the Ninjago line and I don't really follow the animated series. I do think it has plenty of neat sets and elements useful for MOCcing, army building and mixing and matching, which is probably the main reason why I got hold of this special minifigure series. 

Disclaimer: This is not a serious review! Just a quick look at all the minifigures from the series, with a little commentary here and there. Enjoy!
