It’s a big week! Much of Europe is entering a second Coronavirus Lock-Down, two old men are having a fight in America over the postal service, and – more importantly than any of that – TLCB has reached that greatest of birthdays; nine!
Yup, nine years ago in a derelict tower block, the bolts were slid back on a handful of metal cages. Slowly, tentatively, the mythical creatures held within them crept out and disappeared into the shadows.
Frankly sometimes we wish they’d then stayed in the shadows, but annoying as the Elves are they have found some wonderful Lego creations over those nine years, with 2020 being no exception.
In addition to blogging the best Lego vehicles the world has to offer, this year we also ran only our third competition in nearly a decade, with dozens of builders entering TLCB Lock-Down Competition and two collecting some awesome SBrick prize bundles.
We’ve also managed to add a few American patriots to the ‘I’m never visiting this site again!’ commenters’ club, joining the Russian patriots who were outraged in 2018. However despite losing a few readers, more of you have joined us here at TLCB this year than last, and we still have November and December to go. We guess people must be really bored during COVID-19…
So whether you’ve been here for all nine years or 2020 is your first, thank you very much for joining us and supporting the Lego vehicle building community.
If you are new here and are yet to discover all the sections of this miraculously-still-functioning site, take a look at the links below, and remember that the small advertising revenue that your views and clicks generate goes directly to those who need it more than we do.
- Review Library: Over one hundred reviews of LEGO sets, books and third-party products.
- Directory: The place to find links to other (usually much better) LEGO-related websites.
- Interviews: A TLCB Elf armed with a sharpened pencil can get even the most famous builders to talk…
- Feedback and Submission Suggestions: Let us know what you think. No, really.
Until next time, thank you for visiting us.
