Lego Jack Stone Aqua Res-Q Transport Review

Lego water scene

Helego! I made this scene in Lego. It's basically a big lake with a small island with a boat and a swimmer. Check it out!

Here is a better look at the boat

Here is a much better look at the swimmer! Here is a tip and trick. If you want to make it look like your minifigure is swimming, simply take the legs off and just put the head and body on the blue surface. That way it looks like his legs are in the water and he's swimming!

Here is a better look at that island part

I just felt like sharing it with you guys. I find it looks very nice and I will keep it up for display for a while. Keep on building!

Lego Star Wars Battle Orders app

Helego! Lego has lots of fun apps to download. But this would have to be one of my favourites. The Lego Star Wars Battle Orders app!

In the game, you basically have to conquer every planet of the enemy. You can choose to take the light side or the dark side. Then you have a series of levels with different planets to beat.

Choosing your level

Starting the game

So you start with your home planet and the enemy, in this case a storm trooper, has one to. You have to send your ships to other planets to install a base. If the enemy is already there, you have to use tactic and send in different ships to destroy his base and build yours instead.

Sending in a ship

I have conquered bases and in the process of conquering one. I am the blue bases and you can see a red one being destroyed.

Finally, once you have conquered all of them, you win and go one to the next level. Of course, each level is harder than the last.

So again I really like this game and I recommend it. It's lots of fun. And like all of Lego's apps, it's free! Have a great weekend!

Lego Star Wars Fun Zone app

Helego! As you know, Friday I did a post talking about the super heroes app. Well, today I am going to look at the app Lego Star Wars fun zone. I have missed alot of apps that Lego has been releasing so I'm on a roll right now on posts about apps.

So this app is for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Basically it's the fun zone of the Lego Star Wars website but without the games. It has cool creations and all the entertainment like comics, short movies and TV commercials. The only disadvantage with this app is that you need Internet connection to use it. You can also log in with your Lego ID and post your creations directly threw the app. You can see the number of likes you have and all that. You can also view your favourite creations and comments that other people left on other peoples creations. One thing that's cool is that you can download the videos and comics so that you can view them off line. You can view all the comics and videos that are on the Lego Star Wars website. Also, it is updated since you need Internet connection. Here are some pictures of the app:

I hope you liked this overview of the Lego Star Wars fun zone app and I will be doing more of theses posts next weekend. Have a great week!

Lego Super Heroes Movie Maker app

Helego! Have you ever wanted an easy and fast way to make stop motion videos? Well Lego made this app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

It's called as you probably already guessed by the title Lego Super Heroes Movie Maker. So first off, it's very simple to use. Here is the menu. As you can see, the big red button is to start making your movie, the blue button shows all the ones you have already made and the yellow button shows how the app works.

This is the movie gallery

So, when you start making your video, you have to select a title screen and put in a title:

Once you have done that, you can right away start taking your pictures. Start by thinking which characters you will use and a story line. I made it very basic. Captain America hitting an alien. So place everything together and take your first picture by tapping on the screen. This is what it looks like:

To be more precise, you can use a grid to keep your picture centered

You can also use "onion skin". This shows you the last picture you took in "ghost form" so that you can see how much you have moved your scene

Once you are done taking all your pictures, you press "done" of course and then if you want, you can add some music, frames with a word like "POW" and select the number of pictures per second.

Once you are sure you are completley done, it will create the movie for you and after, you can save it to your photo gallery or upload it directly to youtube! Here is the final product of my video:

I will be doing more posts about recent Lego apps like this. It's easier and it's more of quality than when I do it with a video in the dark. So I hope you have lot's of fun with this app!

Lego events coming near you!

Helego! During the whole month of October, the bricktober event is coming back to Toys "R" Us  with new events full of excitement! We got the news the September edition of the Lego magazine.

October 13 and 14, it's the Minifigure Trade Weekend! If you bring one of your minifigures with you at your local Toys "R" Us, you can trade them. Just look for a store worker wearing Lego minifigures and ask him to trade with you. This should be really cool!

Next, only on October 27, it's the Make And Take event! Build a Lego Dracula or a Lego Friends model and bring it home with you. If you are a younger builder, there is a Lego duplo pumpkin to build. I am really excited for this event! I wonder which model I'm going to choose?

Here is the event in the Lego magazine:

Are you going to be going? I know I am ;)
