Have you gotten on your hands and knees, searched under coffee tables or crawled along carpet to find that one missing piece? We’ve lost a LEGO piece somewhere in this magazine. It looks just like this: Find it and let us know! Email us at webmaster@thebrickcollectors.com with the page number and location! Include your first name and where you’re from and if yours is the first correct entry we receive, we’ll mention you in the next issue. A hearty congratulations goes out to our June/July winner, Michael B. from St. Charles, Illinois , who was the first to correctly spot the missing brick to the right of the blue brick on the bottom of page 17. His entry was closely followed by one from Francesca P. from Rockingham, so we’re giving her an honorary mention. Nice work! From the Editor’s Desk Hello, LEGO fans!

Third-Place Winner in the LEGO® Super Heroes Challenge First-Place Winner in the Toys N Bricks LEGO® Movie Maker App Contest  Building Challenge a fun way to involve the whole family in LEGO building Building Challenge Variations Choose a theme Pick a general theme, like space vehicles, or nature scenes, and build anything that fits that theme. Same pieces, different models This variation takes some preparation. Fill plastic bags with sets of identical parts - between 20 and 40 pieces works well. Give each person a set of identical parts and challenge each other to build a model using all parts. Reveal your models to each other once everyone has finished. Choose a brick Select a particular piece and challenge each other to create models that feature this piece as a prominent part. Choose a style Test your skills by trying out different building styles. Make a mosaic or a sculpture, or try making something using only basic bricks. 3 Building Challenge #3 Choose a style: Microscale Models LEGO designs in microscale have been increasing in popularity. Microscale models are smaller than standard minifig size. The LEGO Games include many microscale minifigures. A great example of microscale building is the VIP Exclusive Mini-Modulars Set (10320).Part of the challenge of building models at this scale is in finding just the right pieces for the job. You’ll find yourself paying attention to features of the bricks - like the square opening on the ‘back’ side of a headlight brick - that you never really paid attention to before. It will give you a whole new appreciation for some of the most familiar LEGO pieces. Our Results For this challenge, we all worked at our own pace and completed the models at different times. My son made an awesome Dropship. This model uses very few pieces but features a nice level of detail.
