This tiny LEGO ship of the line is built using just 115 bricks. We hope to publish instructions for you to build one your self soon. For now, you’ll have to take this LEGO Brick Bounty out on the high seas in t-shirt form.
Here is a fun project we just completed for a young fellow who is moving into a new home in June. His mother contacted us to inquire if we could make him something special for his new bedroom, perhaps in a dinosaur theme. We proposed building a lamp in a Jurassic World theme, and she loved the idea! You can see the finished project below.
This lamp features a custom ‘Jurassic World’ sticker, green LEGO plants / foliage, a functioning brown gate, and a T-Rex, naturally. We used the T-Rex fromset #75918, the T-Rex Tracker set.
What do you think? Will it be a hit with this young LEGO fan? We certainly hope so!

Just a quick post today, a confirmation of sorts. A conversation topic that comes up a lot during our LEGO User Group Meetings is color variety within LEGO parts and pieces. Specifically, color tone differences from one brick to the next, likely due to variations in the plastic mix used during the manufacturing process. Think of this as you would the subtle difference between one can of paint to the next, and how the hardware store always suggests mixing the cans at home.
Our favorite color is DARK RED, and this is one color that is most often found to be guilty of this color variation from one brick to the next… In fact, we’ve often complained that the color doesn’t even come close to matching itself from one set to th enext, especially from year to year. For example, look at the dark red brick featured in the Knights Kingdom line:
And now compare that to the dark red featured in last years pirates line up:
The newer dark red is muted, much less bright, and even leads towards brown. A subtle difference in these pictures that is much more apparent when held side by side in person.
The Knights Kingdom set we use for comparison was released in 2004, so the formulation change followed that production year at some point, but the color ID of 154 was never changed. Perhaps this color has always had variation problems and was reformulated, but not to a degree where a new color id would be mandated by the LEGO group?
But, considering this is the same company whose naming convention for Tan and Dark tan is Brick Yellow and Sand Yellow, maybe we shouldn’t get so worked up over the names on the chart!
