Black Friday | Nothing to See Here

Lego Zombie

Black Friday is back for another swipe at humanity, when the citizens of the western world are willing to bludgeon each other to death with the very same discounted electronics that they’re trying to buy. As usual we are not participating, so there will be no Black Friday deal links published here at The Lego Car Blog. Keep your soul – visit Creations for Charity, Tearfund, Red Cross, or the Super Secret link instead. See you on the other side.

Black Friday – Nothing to See Here

Black Friday

It’s that time of year again, when millions of soulless zombies descend on shopping malls around the world, or frantically click ‘buy’ from the comfort of their office chair, in an attempt to obtain something they hadn’t thought about owning until today.

As is traditional The Lego Car Blog won’t be taking part, and if you’d like to avoid the annual greed apocalypse too there are some great alternatives!

Creations for Charity 2017

The wonderful Creations for Charity 2017 is in full swing, where you can buy unique fan-built Lego creations from which the proceeds are used to provide LEGO toys to underprivileged children. Visit the Creations for Charity store by clicking here and do something amazing this Black Friday!

We can also recommend Oxfam, Christian Aid, The Red Cross, Unicef and Tearfund, and finally just by being here you’re doing some good too, as the revenue raised by the adverts on this site is donated to causes worthier than ourselves (which isn’t hard!), so if an advert interests you please click it, your visits really do make a difference!

Black Friday – Nothing to See Here

Lego Zombie

Black Friday is upon us once again, that unique time of year when people are willing to trample their fellow man to death to secure a discount on an electrical appliance. We hate Black Friday.

As has become traditional, unlike the proper Lego blogs we’re not taking part in the annual greed apocalypse, and instead we’re offering some alternatives to help you to avoid becoming just another mindless, soulless zombie with an unquenchable thirst for acquiring ever more pointless landfill.

Lego Creations for Charity

The awesome Creations for Charity campaign is back for another year, with some incredible fan-built models available to buy and where all proceeds are used to provide LEGO sets for underprivileged children. There’s just one week to go – to see what’s available and make a real difference to a child this Christmas visit the Creations for Charity 2016 page here.

Oxfam, Tearfund, Christian AidUnicef

Finally of course, just by being here you’re doing a little bit of good. All profits generated from the advertising you see here at The Lego Car Blog are donated to those who need them more than we do, including the charities above and also at a more local level around TLCB Towers. A huge thank you for your clicks – they mean the world to us.

Black Friday: Nothing to See Here

Lego Brick

Black Friday, that unique time of year when people are willing to stab one another over a discounted television, is upon the world again today.

As TLCB will not be taking part we’d like to offer you some neat alternatives to help you avoid getting into a fight over something you didn’t even know you wanted at Walmart.

Lego Creations for Charity

Creations for Charity; A brilliant annual event giving you the opportunity to buy unique creations built by some of the world’s best builders, with all funds raised used to buy LEGO toys for underprivileged children. If you’re going to buy something today, buy it from the Creations for Charity 2015 store.

Christian Aid, Tear Fund, Oxfam, The Red Cross

…and many more.

You’re also doing something good just by visiting this website. We don’t allow many advertisements to appear here at TLCB, but the revenue generated by those that do is not used here. Blogging is a privilege – we love sharing the web’s best Lego vehicles and helping to bring recognition to the builders behind them – so we don’t need to keep the revenue that this site earns. Instead this is used for a variety of good causes, from simply buying meals for those who are homeless around TLCB Towers to assisting in international disaster relief.

Your clicks are amazing.

From all of us at TLCB, thank you.

Black Friday: Nothing to See Here

Black Friday

Tomorrow someone is going die fighting over something they didn’t even know they wanted in Walmart.

The annual greed apocalypse that is Black Friday commences shortly, during which humanity, decency and kindness will be pushed aside for the sake of a half-price electrical appliance.

As this blog won’t be featuring tomorrow’s sales, if you’re in the market for something LEGO-related instead we’d love you to visit our friends over at the amazing Creations for Charity fundraising page.

There are some brilliant creations up for grabs, built and donated by some of the best builders around, and all the proceeds generated are used to buy LEGO toys for underprivileged children this Christmas. What could be better than that?

There’s only one day of the 2014 Creations for Charity event remaining so get in quick via the link above!

Your clicks here are making a difference too. We only allow one advertisement to appear at any one time on TLCB, but thanks to your visits it more than covers the cost of hosting this site and maintaining TLCB Executive Washroom and Sauna.

We’ll update you all on where this revenue is being donated when we reach the next nice round number. We hope that we’re managing to operate a little differently to many of the other blogs in the Lego Community, and all thanks for the ability to do this go to you guys – this blog would be nothing without you.

Black Friday: The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead Lego Winnebago

Today a plague of mindless, soulless zombies took to the streets, crushing the weak and inattentive beneath them, and remorselessly stopping at nothing until their lust was quenched.

We are of course talking about the American scourge known as ‘Black Friday’, where people are willing to trample one another to death to secure a 50% discount on something they didn’t even want until today, and where the equivalent of the entire GDP of Sudan is spent in just 24 hours.

Much like The Walking Dead’s Dale sitting atop his Winnebago whilst the zombies surge below him, The Lego Car Blog Towers are located out of reach of the madness, allowing us to watch from afar as society destroys itself to secure $25 off a hi-fi.

Misterzumbi’s mini-figure scale recreation of both Dale and the motorhome that featured in the first two seasons of the apocalyptic series seem perfect for today. We just hope our future is brighter than Dale’s turned out to be.

You can see all the photos of Misterzumbi’s fantastic model at his photostream here, and for our readers that managed to avoid the Black Friday greed, a super secret link. If you’d like to do something different from the zombies today, we highly recommend Red Cross, Christian Aid, Unicef and many more.
