Lego Batman is coming to save the City!

Batman and Lego fans, this is the time to get hyped up and excited! Lego Batman is coming to save the City, showing today on 9th February 2017 in Singapore! The adult fans of Lego would love it (especially if you are also a fan of Batman) along with their children!

I am a Lego fan, I have collected some Lego toys although I haven’t reach the hardcore serious Lego collector yet (I should write a post on my cousin’s huge Lego collection if he allows me to)

Lego Batman is coming to save the City, with a fun event at ION Orchard, new Lego Batman toys for you to play with and the movie is showing today on 9th February 2017! 

Lego Batman Escape Room Event at ION Orchard B4 ION Station (24th Jan to 18th Feb, 10am to 10pm)

If you are a parent, bring your children down to ION Orchard and have fun inside the Lego Batman Escape Room, it’s a fun hands on experience with Lego bricks and toys, your children would love it! I am also quite sure that inside you, there is still a child in you that wants to play with Lego, go in, play and build Lego with your children, this is going to be a great family bonding and fun time with Lego bricks!

As an adult fan of Lego, I had fun playing with Lego Batman bricks and toys! I didn’t take much photographs because I was too busy and engrossed with playing Lego Batman toys or looking at the new Lego toys!

Thank you Bricks World for inviting me down the Lego Batman Escape Room Event prior to watching the premiere of The Lego Batman Movie!

Premiere of The Lego Batman Movie

It was an honour, a great pleasure and fun to watch the premiere of The Lego Batman Movie at Shaw Lido theatre prior to the official release of the movie this week in Singapore.

I just want to share some personal thoughts and feelings after I watched The Lego Batman Movie. First and foremost, I am not a movie/film critic and it’s also not meant to be a movie review.

The Lego Batman Movie is not like the ones you saw on the movie screens, this movie is family oriented, the bonding, relationships and friendships. The starting and ending movie segments were really comical and funny, I was thinking what happened and why, followed by me laughing at Batman’s wisdom of words!

Colours and quality of the digital animation works are really excellent, for those who love digital animation videos, you have to watch The Lego Batman Movie.

The Lego Batman Movie is ideal and suitable for children, parents, bring your children and watch it together for a fun family bonding time. Parents, if you are an Adult Fan of Lego too, you don’t need more encouragement, you are probably more excited than your children to catch the movie!

The Lego Batman Movie would be starting to show in cinemas today on the 9th February 2017! Time to bring your family and children down to the cinemas and catch this family fun movie!

Last but not least, here are some key websites for all Lego Batman fans –

Thank you Bricks World for the invitation!

Christmas Wonderland 2015 at Gardens By The Bay

The month of December, the last month of the calendar year, it’s usually a whole month of festivities, fun, gatherings and celebrations leading up to Christmas and the New Year. In Singapore, there are a number of places to celebrate Christmas in the month of December and one great destination to celebrate Christmas in Singapore is to visit Gardens By The Bay for Christmas Wonderland.

IMG_8713

Singapore largest yuletide fair is now at Gardens By The Bay, lighted up by bright, colourful, dazzling and amazing Italian Luminarie light sculptures, a European style festive market and there is also Christmas Toyland floral display in the Flower Dome (there are many cute teddy bears!!).

Let me walk you through the fun, celebrations and festivities of Christmas Wonderland 2015 at Gardens By The Bay, with my stories and photos.

Christmas Toyland Floral Display

First and foremost, let’s enter the Flower Dome, decorated and transformed into a Christmas Toyland Floral Display. The kids are going to love the toyland and I am pretty sure adults would love the Christmas toyland too! You can find cute toys there inside the Christmas Toyland, they are the “star attractions”, if you are a fan of teddy bears, you must not miss the Christmas Toyland inside the Flower Dome! While you are enjoying the Christmas Toyland, keep a lookout and spot the yuletide floral favourites like the poinsettia, Christmas rose.

An 11 metre high Christmas Pyramid, in the middle of the Christmas Toyland Floral Display, stands out in the Flower Dome, towering over the floral display area. You can’t miss it and you want to visit it, it’s packed and decked with toys on its multi-tiered traditional German wooden carousel.

Christmas Wonderland at the SuperTree Grove

Next, let’s walk towards the SuperTree Grove where many beautiful and dazzling lights welcome you. This sector has many attractions and fun for you, your loved ones and your friends to enjoy.

Among the tall and might SuperTrees, you can find the festive market, the Spalliera and Ice Palace, where the tallest sculpture of lights towering over 20m can be found.

The Spalliera is the largest Luminarie, surrounding the Cassa Armonica, an 8m wide gorgeous and beautifully lighted gazebo. When you are inside the Spalliera, wait for the Blizzard Time @ Spalliera, to revel and enjoy the wonder of “snow” in the tropics with the nightly Blizzard Time.

The Ice Palace makes her maiden debut at Christmas Wonderland 2015 at Gardens By The Bay, featuring a snow playground and ice skating rink. I reckon this would be a big attraction for family with young children to experience snow and ice skating in the tropics. The Spiegeltent, an ornate century old traveling mirror tent from the Netherlands, is located at SuperTree Grove sector, do drop by and check them out!

Celebrating the festivities, fun, joy and spirit of Christmas at Gardens By The Bay, keep a lookout for festive entertainment and performances –

  • Choral performances at Cassa Armonica by various schools
  • AIA TrickArt
  • Christmas Parades
  • Curtain Call
  • Yuletide Sessions
  • Garden Rhapsody
  • Home for the Holidays (Christmas Toyland at the SuperTree Grove)

The Fairground

After spending time at the SuperTree Grove, walk towards The Fairground, located near The Meadow. This is a fun fair carnival ground, the kids would love it and I am sure the adults would love it too!

What are the fun things that you can enjoy and do at The Fairground ?

  • Vintage Carousel
  • Helter Skelter (It’s a 14m high slide!)
  • Trackless Train
  • Game stalls

Star Wars 75078 Imperial Troop Transport

The Star Wars 75078 Imperial Troop Transport is one of the new set of Star Wars Lego series launched in the month of January 2015. This was one of the Star Wars Lego set that caught my attention, it’s not too expensive and I can take the opportunity to build up my stormtroopers collection.

IMG_0604

When the Imperial Troop Transport was initially launched, it was very popular among Star Wars Lego collectors/fans. The initial demand was pretty strong and there were not enough supplies to meet the demands of the customers. I waited for a few weeks before I was able to get hold of them. Due to recent work commitments, I wasn’t able to open up my box and build them up.

IMG_0567

However, with the Canon EOS M3 review camera available to me for two weeks, I decided to bring my Lego toy out of from my store room and used the Canon EOS M3 to take photographs of my Star Wars Lego building process. This was also a good time for me to test the capabilities of the Canon EOS M3 too!

IMG_0602

The Imperial Troop Transport is based on the TV series Star Wars Rebels, tracking down rebels on Planet Lothal. It would be interesting to conceptualise some Star Wars Lego scenes with the Imperial Troop Transport, Stormtroopers and Rebels! Besides that, I am keen on collecting more Imperial Troop Transport and showcase a section size or platoon size of Imperial Troop Transport and Stormtroopers!

IMG_0568

I hope that I can share more on the Star Wars Lego collection, conceptualising scenes, producing and photographing them! Keep a lookout!

Star Wars Lego Microfighters Series 2 – 75075 AT-AT

The Star Wars Lego Microfighter Series was one of the first few Star Wars Lego that brought me back to the Way of The Force and the Power of the Force, a world that I “went away” for a period of time. It recalled me back to the World of Star Wars and there was no turning back! In the year 2015, there is a new Star Wars Lego Microfighters Series and inside this year’s collection, there were some pretty interesting and nice Microfighters Series!

IMG_2456

One of the more popular toys in my personal opinion would be the 75075 AT-AT, the mini version of the bigger size 75075 AT-AT (one of the Star Wars Lego toys that I was planning to add on to my collection). The Star Wars Lego Microfighters Series are good for people to start off in their Star Wars Lego collection journey! It’s a must buy!

IMG_2437

The process to building Star Wars Lego Microfighter Series 2 75075 AT-AT is easy and very fun, great for both children and adults! Look no further, come towards the Way of The Force, the Force of Star Wars Lego!

Star Wars Lego 75089 Geonosis Troopers

Star Wars and Lego fans, the year 2015 is going to be an exciting year! With Star Wars Episode VII : The Force Awakens coming to the screens in December 2015, every Star Wars fan must be eagerly looking forward to this new movie! Along with this excitement, we are all very curious on the new Star Wars vehicles/fighters/machinery in the new movie!

IMG_2462

At the start of the year 2015, Lego launched a new series of Star Wars Lego toys collection and it’s currently very popular in the market! I am looking for Star Wars Lego 75078 Imperial Troop Transport, collect a number of the boxes and build up my Stormtroopers collection to produce Star Wars Lego scenes! However, it’s really popular and getting hard to find them!

IMG_2459

The other Star Wars Lego 2015 collection that caught my attention was the Star Wars Lego 75089 Geonosis  Troopers! I added them to my personal Star Wars Lego collection! I am still planning how I can create Star Wars scenes with the Geonosis Troopers and I might be getting a few of them! The Star Wars Lego 75089 Geonosis Troopers is easy to build and you can collect 2 types of Lego Mini-figurines – 2 Geonosis Clone Troopers and 2 Geonosis Airborne Clone Troopers!

IMG_2475

It’s the start of the new year 2015 and let’s get my Star Wars Lego scenes back up and running again!

Star Wars Lego 7965 Millennium Falcon

The Star Wars Millennium Falcon, is probably one of the most iconic and important Star Wars starships, you can’t miss it and it’s probably a hot favourite among the Star Wars fans too! The Millennium Falcon is definitely my favourite Star Wars starships, followed by the X-Wing Starfighter! Getting the Star Wars Lego 7965 Millennium Falcon was hot on my list and when I finally got my hands on it, I was very happy!

2T2J1443

This Star Wars Lego 7965 Millennium Falcon has 1254 pieces and I had to confess that it took me a bit longer than usual to finish constructing the Millennium Falcon! There were 6 Star Wars Lego mini figurines and they will make great addition to my Star Wars Lego collection! Hopefully in the future, I am able to own the Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) 10179 Star Wars Lego Millennium Falcon, I do need the space (and savings to purchase it) to put it on display!

2T2J1436

As I slowly added more Star Wars Lego to my collection, I am able to proceed and plan more Star Wars scenes with my Lego toys, some are from the trilogy, some are from my own ideas and inspirations! In the months ahead, I hope to share more stories and photographs from my Star Wars scenes build up such as Battle of Hoth from Star Wars V – Empire Strikes Back (with my Echo Base, X-Wing Starfighter and I need to add the AT-AT and more Snowtroopers to my collection first!)

2T2J1388

Do keep a lookout for my upcoming stories on my Star Wars Lego scenes adventures! It’s going to be a mix of scenes from Star Wars Trilogy, my own ideas and inspirations! I am also planning to find fellow photographer friends who are also Star Wars Lego fans to “combine resources” together to create bigger Star Wars scenes with our Lego toys!

May The Force Be With You, Always!

Star Wars Lego 7749 Echo Base

The Battle of Hoth, one of the most memorable movie scenes of the Star Wars Trilogy, in Star Wars V – The Empire Strikes Back. It was one of my favourite Star Wars movie scenes and I had been planning to do the Battle of Hoth scenes with my Star Wars Lego toys! This mini project is definitely going to take up a number of resources and time to plan, setup, build and photograph! Building it up slowly, with the addition of the Star Wars Lego 7749 Echo Base, it’s the kickstart for me to produce my Battle of Hoth Lego Star Wars scene!

2T2J1060

Lego 7749 Echo Base was released in 2009, an older Lego model compared to the later series, Lego 7879 Hoth Echo Base that was released in 2011. Nevertheless, I liked the Lego 7749 Echo Base, simple and what I was planning to get, the gun turret! The Snowtroopers from the Lego 7749 Echo Base series were different from the current Snowtroopers! Check out the photograph below and spot the differences between the two different series of Snowtroopers!

IMG_20140826_005825

While I am starting to replicate Star Wars movie scenes with my Lego collection, I was also conceptualising and planning my own Star Wars scenes with my Lego collection. Do keep a lookout for my Star Wars Lego Scenes here on my Flickr collection!

2T2J1067

With the Lego 7749 Echo Base and my Star Wars Lego Snowspeeder, I took the next step towards building my Battle of Hoth scene and I hope that I can share my stories and adventures soon in the near future! Follow my Star Wars Lego photography collection and adventures here on Flickr!

Star Wars Lego 75002 AT-RT

The day I started my Star Wars Lego collection, there was no turning back. No, I didn’t go to the Dark Side, I went to the Star Wars Lego side! After adding 75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon and 75044 Droid Tri-Fighter, I added Star Wars Lego 75002 AT-RT and it had become my favourite Star Wars Lego at the moment and I am sure if you have the AT-RT, you will love it too! I have to thank DK for recommending me to get the Star Wars Lego AT-RT!

IMG_9296

It is very nice, not too big and you can bring it out! Master Yoda Lego figurine is really interesting and cute, Master Yoda figurine Lego legs can’t move! The building and construction of the AT-RT wasn’t too difficult and won’t take up too much of your time! For this particular construction and building of the AT-RT, I photographed/documented the process with Canon PowerShot SX700HS and Sony Alpha 6000 camera review units! Do keep a lookout for my upcoming camera reviews!

The Star Wars AT-RT is the short form for All Terrain Recon Transport and more information on the various Star Wars All Terrain vehicles can be found here on Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki! Since the AT-RT is a reconnaissance vehicle, I have some personal plans and ideas to bring the AT-RT out for “reconnaissance exploration photography projects”, inspired by LEGO Travellers and Danbo! Keep a lookout here on my Facebook Page and Instagram for my AT-RT exploration adventures in Singapore and hopefully overseas travel too! You can follow my Star Wars Photography collection here on Flickr!

Walk and explore with my Star Wars Lego AT-RT, bringing you around to many places through their recon projects! Here’s a sneak preview, my Star Wars Lego AT-RT exploring West Coast Park Singapore!

Star Wars Lego 75044 Droid Tri-Fighter

The trilogy and journey of my Star Wars Lego collection continues again, after my addition and sharing of my recent Star Wars Lego 75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon, I added Star Wars Lego 75044 Droid Tri-Fighter (during Robinsons Shopping Centre Lego sale at Raffles City Shopping Centre) and I can start to plan some Star Wars Lego scenes with the Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon versus the Droids!

2T2J9668

2T2J9665

The Star Wars Lego Droid Tri-Fighter had lesser Lego pieces to build it and I decided to show lesser step-by-step photographs in my construction of the Droid Tri-Fighter. Since my initial experiences constructing and photographing my Star Wars Lego toys, it was easier for me in how I wanted to do my setup and lighting. The workflow now is easier and I hope to share more step-by-step photographs of my future Star Wars Lego collection.

2T2J9672

Planning ahead in the future, I can start planning some Star Wars scenes with my Lego toys! Bringing them out to the various Singapore landscapes, in the heartlands Old Playgrounds, inside the Central Catchment area to emulate Endor scenes. How will it turn out? Let me experiment and I hope to share some Star Wars Lego scenes and stories with fellow Star Wars and Lego fans soon!
