Golden Baubles
No not David Beckham’s long lost brother, but a festive set from Lego.
About this creation
Available only from the Winter Lego catalogue. I saw this in the latest catalogue and thought to my self wow 40 shiny golden bricks for only Ł3.99 - what a bargain. So I frantically phoned the Lego hotline. “Hello” I said “Is this Mr Lego?” “Yes” said a slightly apprehensive voice on the other end of the phone. “Shiny shiny golden baubles please” Using my wife’s Credit Card I managed to buy two sets, One for me and one for my good friend Tomaso. Shhhh! Don’t tell him (or her) it’s supposed to be a surprise.

It transpired that there are only 14 gold pieces, the majority are dark tan and trans yellow. A Misdescription? A Misrepresentation? A Little Miss Naughty? oh no sorry that’s the Mr Men.

Any who this is what Frank and I made from the 40 bricks.




The available pieces - 14 gold 2x2 bricks, 14 dark tan 2x2 bricks and 12 trans yellow 2x1 bricks





Golden Stepped Pyramid







Aztec City of Gold





The Golden Lion. Used to be a great old fashioned English Pub. Unfortunately now full of Chavs ;)







Golden Christmas Tree.



Frank putting the 'Star' on the top. His idea for the photo.





Rudolf the Golden Nosed Reindeer







Rudolf and Frank's 'Baby Lion'

I hope to add more creations to this but that is it for now.

Merry Christmas to all at MocPages :)

Some nice work there, conragts to Frank as well! :) My fav is Rudolf and the baby lion, both looks stunning in these colours. And thank you very much for your interest in my absence, it really made my day. Thing is I got a second job and we are expecting our second baby in March, so things got spiced up recently. I simply can't find the time for Lego. :-(

Unimog is ready. It took seven and a half hours. Yes, it's very cool, except the steering.

Quoting Gabor Horvath I got the Unimog. I've been building it for six hours. It's huge... Thanks for your comments!
Got that a few months ago. It took me about 10 hours! In 3 or 4 settings. Good luck. It's a great set to play with. Steering is poor though.

Creative usage! Like a Creator set! Fantastic! I like all models, but my favourite is the lion and it's mouth. Well, the news of my dark ages aren't true. The reason of the temporary silence was the school. Did you get Lego for Christmas?

Hello Joe. We had a splendid Christmas here, great fun, good food, and just a sip of wine ;-) Christmas brought me 8070, so me happy!! I hope you and your family had a great Christmas also? To answer your proposal from the Alan Mann colors : I think it is better to build in yellow instead of gold. I did search on bricklink, and found there are some 6000 1*2 tiles in gold to buy, but no 1*1 tiles, so nothing we can use, I think. Much greetings!

Quoting Lego Builders 3.99 is still a bit expensive, don't you think? :) ~LB Jr.
Hi. Well 10pence each for gold bricks would be quite good but due to fact that most of the bricks are tan and trans then yes it is expensive naughty mr Lego :)

Neat! Merry Christmas! 3.99 is still a bit expensive, don't you think? :) ~LB Jr.
