Love at first brick?

Just saw this in today’s Metro newspaper this morning (21/04/2016)


The article is mainly about technology, data and dating, but it is interesting to see the newspaper use a LEGO MOC and Minifigures to highlight the article in terms of an image. Nothing to do with LEGO at all! More importantly who built the MOC?! Has the builder had their work acknowledged even though it is a small one?

LEGO is becoming more and more prominent within everyday life and I do wonder how many other publications use MOC’s or minifigures to illustrate an article. If you do come across them, please do get in touch with us here at BF as it will be good to see which outlets choose to use LEGO as a medium such as this.


My name is Keith and I am a AFOL. Currently an expat living out in Basel, CH, but have a firm footing back in the UK when time permits. I have had had Lego ever since I can remember - and only until my wee one came along have I re-kindled the flame for building again. I also run, a resource site for the 1-75 series of miniatures by Matchbox. There are only three themes that I am get/collect (finances permitting) - City, Creator (Advanced and Expert) as well as the classic Star Wars sets from Eps IV to VI (anything else does not exist). I also keep an eye in Europe with ample chance to see how France, Germany and Switzerland market and offer LEGO.
