I've spent most of the day cleaning the house and napping. Days off are the best. Now I plan to sculpt something, watch a movie and read.
A couple of days ago, I won an award, and as part of the deal, you're supposed to pass that on to fifteen equally enjoyable and deserving blogs that you've recently discovered. As it turns out, with the exception of those I started following because of her other winners, I only follow around 30 blogs.... and I've gotta save some for the next award I win. SO without further ado, here are some pages that bring me great joy on a regular basis. Below you'll find writers, bikes, robots, monsters, mothers, ninjas, dogs and more. There's no common theme except that all of them are awesome!
Check 'em out, love 'em and pass them on!

Five Things About...
Prison Tower Rescue
1 - This is the first set I have from the new Castle-themed Legos, titled Kingdoms. Each time they start a new series with Castle, it's a good kingdom versus a clearly bad kingdom, in this case, a red and white themed Lion kingdom versus the green and gold Dragon kingdom. I have to give it to the bad guys as far as color scheme this time around.
2 - This is a pretty simple set, the assembly was trouble free and everything seems pretty sturdy and well-designed. So far the green plate directly below the portcullis is the only thing that seems poorly anchored.
3 - This set comes with 5 minifigures, a Lion knight and soldier, a Dragon knight and crossbow wielder and a princess in a red and white dress. There's a also a horse for the Lion knight. I especially like the grizzled gray beard on the Lion knight.
4 - A couple of fun details on here, including a wheel and string controlled gate, a drop down prison gate that becomes a ladder, boiling oil and a tiny catapult. The horse has a nice unicorn horn that fits into its headpiece.
5 - A solid set overall, with logical ways for the residents to get to different floors, though it suffers, like all Legos by being a simple one sided structure, like a set in a play. Which has been standard for quite a while and allows for easier play on both sides, but I do miss the older swing-open styled buildings they used to have.
