November 2011… a gloved hand slid the bolts back on some small metal cages, and little army of cautious, mythical, and often violent creatures slipped out into the shadows…
Tasked with filling the void left by the proper Lego blogs, this unseen, undetectable, and – most importantly – unpaid workforce set out to bring back the very best Lego vehicles from the every corner of the internet.
Housed in the foreboding concrete carbuncle that is TLCB Towers a crack team of writers (or so we’ve been called. At least it sounded like ‘crack’…) then set to work turning these finds into the words that you read here.
Six years, nearly 3,000 posts, and over 4 million visitors later we’re still going, even if we have absolutely no idea how this has all worked.
In that time we’ve reviewed close to a hundred LEGO sets, third party products and books, interviewed nearly twenty of the world’s top Lego builders, and likely been a perennial annoyance to the sites that try to do this whole Lego-blogging thing with professionalism and competence.
As reader you’re one of over a million visitors to this site every year, so whether you joined us at the start or have recently discovered us, thank you for taking the time to stop by this humble little corner of the internet. Without you this site would just be the wayward rambling of some madmen.
You’re also raising money for good causes every time you visit us, as the revenue generated by the limited advertisements we allow to appear here is distributed to those that need it more than we do.
So as the sun sets on another year thank you for joining us, and we’ll try to keep bringing you the best Lego vehicles the world has to offer.
*OK, last week, we weren’t paying attention. Still, we’ve done better than last year when we missed it altogether.
