Netherminilands

In early June, LEGO is hosting a Tallest LEGO Tower event in Limmen, in the Netherlands. Robert of Amazing Brick Creations was commissioned to build a giant Dutch girl minifig to be built as part of this event, and he's also created a minland version of her. You can buy it as a commemorative kit or download the instructions on his site.

Legoland California

As noted by a commenter the other day and also on Fascinating LEGO Model of the Day, you can also use Google Maps StreetView to visit Legoland California.

BTW, I once again took the code to embed that from FLMotD.

Miniland Impossible

Now I've got the theme music running through my head, driven by Crazy Texan's Miniland Impossible. Regardless of your feelings about Tom Cruise vs Peter Graves, this is a cool Miniland Vig.

Visit Miniland from home

This is so cool! All credit goes to Fascinating LEGO Model of the Day for this. Google Maps has added a street - er - walking path view to Legoland Windsor. So you can sit at your computer and mouse around the park, zooming in to look at all the details. I think I've just figured out what I'll be doing for the next several hours.

I completely copied the code for embedding the viewer from Fascinating LEGO Model of the Day. It seems to work for me, but if not for you you can follow the link to the Google Map page and use it there.

They tried to make me go to rehab, I said "No, I'm LEGO"

Justin Ramsden presents Amy Winehouse. Check out the two little minilanders next to the large bust (well, if you're a minor, don't check out the one too closely).

Behind the scenes at Legoland

Gary McIntire, aka MrGSnot, is a Model Designer at Legoland California. On his desk, he's got this business card holder based on the recent waterpark addition to the park. He also made this cake topper for a colleague who got married. Finally, we get a peek at his workbench, where you can see works-in-progress to design new models and refurbish old ones for the park.

Cows hate cold hands
