Lego City at Centrepoint

There's a LEGO CITY Fire Truck built with about 200,000 LEGO bricks at Centrepoint.
It will be on display till 25 June 2010.

This is the largest Lego fire truck and fireman in SEA.
Built by public lego participants, AFOLs and Nicholas Foo(LCP).

A smaller version of the giant Lego Fire Truck.

Lego fair by Robinson
Just in case you didn't enter from the front door of Centerpoint.
Do note that there's 2 more Lego city displays at the entrance just outside the Robinson.
The Lego city on display looks awesome. Packed with action!
A real treat for the Lego city fans.

Astro Galaxy New Look!

Updated Post 22 June 2010, 25 June 2010

I'm glad that I've finished doing up my blogs with new layout today.
I started off changing my blog template using a trial blog I've have.
It seems safe and user friendly.
So I tried it out on my travel blog - Astro Galaxy Travel.
The layout, photo alignments seems ok but I haven't checked on the older posts yet.
I have to say I'm very impressed with the variety of different backgrounds and templates Blogger is providing now.
And the ease of changing from the old template to new one is also... for the time being seems safe.
Nothing crash so far and I hope all will be well.

Post Additions on 22 June 2010 :
Background changed to astronomy picture.

Post Additions on 25 June 2010 :
Revert back to original background that comes along with the template.
Made some changes to the fronts and text colors.
I'm still lost as to which settings (eg. colors, links...) changes to which part of the blog.

Toy Story Lego

A 2010 new theme in lego licensed by Disney - Toy Story.
I'm impressed by the release of so many different Toy Story lego sets.
Managed to build up some of them and enjoy the building process of it.
These lego looks nice on display too.
One of my favourite is the 7590 Woody and Buzz to the rescue.
This is one very interesting model.
It has a pull-back motor action and allows the car to move.
Quite a solid build for this lego car.
The rocket that can be attached to the Buzz mini figure is also cool to be included in this set.
I still have 2 more boxes left to build (7593 & 7597).
I'll post the photos once I've completed it.
