Seems there are a few of us that missed, I wonder if the publisher would do another run especially if some us paid in advance. Don’t know how to go about asking or who.
I certainly hope that that stance changes at some point, because I think that the book deserves a much wider distribution.

Keeping in the vein of the discussions about LEGOs' history and the recent storybooks, here's my updated collection of wooden ducks; dates of each run from the 30s to 50s.
Minifigures too... Are those the Wicked Bricks wall cases? If so, what do you think of them? And how well do they handle unusually sized or oriented figs? (height, depth, etc. can be a real problem for some figs in some display cases)
If not the Wicked Bricks ones, what are they?
The minifigure cases are from sfminifiguredisplays.
The sets in the background are in WickedBrick display cases.
thay could form up there own Power Ranger Teem.
Power Qwacks Go! :) it's morthing time.
i may be in need of some sleep.....
Overall though, I highly recommend them. Those are just tiny flaws amongst a slew of pros to get these cases.
I personally found it very interesting. It's really much more focused on the Kristiansen family and the business than on the bricks, which was just fine with me as I learned a lot that I didn't previously know. The coverage of the early years was especially interesting to me. The unprecedented access that the author had to the company archives and to the family itself was really evident. If I had any criticism it would be that the later years didn't seem to get quite as good of a story told and there were some odd gaps and leaps. It was very interesting to read though about the generational leadership change from Kjeld to Thomas and the setup and plans for the fifth generation change as well. But overall, if you have an interest in the history of the company itself, and especially about the family behind it, then I would certainly recommend the read.
That's really interesting Sam! I know they talked in the book of the fluidity of the spelling of the last name, but I don't think they mentioned that even Ole used the K spelling at times like you've shown.
still got a number of set to build. but. this is a nice image of part of my lego room.

Fortunately it wasn't from scratch, but was a case of manipulating a lot of different graphics I had built up over the last year or so for different lego projects.
No, I wouldn't know how to either.
Oh, wait, I get it now... ;)
A new addition to the collection is this aluminum Jupiter minifigure. LEGO sent 3 space-grade aluminum minifigures (Jupiter, Juno, Galileo) on the NASA Juno spacecraft headed for Jupiter in 2011. The spacecraft crashed (intentionally) into Jupiter's surface in 2017. There is of course a set (maybe 2) left of prototypes/duplicates left behind here on Earth. I was lucky enough to acquire one from Billund; thrilled to have it in the collection as one of the rarest minifigures in my collection!
The story and history behind this one especially is a really fascinating one.
Overall, I'm super happy with how things are coming together in this room!!
Once I'm fairly happy with the organization of the room as a whole, I'll share more photos of the whole thing.
I just received my LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation poster this weekend, which I will gladly hang with haste once this stinking house finishes being built!
