About Ben - Flare

Ben, also known as Flare, is a long time fan and builder of LEGO, and is here to bring it to the next level. On Flickr, he is known as Ben Unleashed, but everywhere else is known as Flare, hence the name of the blog.

Flare’s new blog.

I have started up a new blog, since this one is dead.

I hope you enjoy: Flare’s Choice


Yeah, we’re dead.

Thanks for the run, everyone, it was fun. The blog is pretty much dead now, so I just wanted to post this so no one would be expecting any more new posts… yeah.


10218 Pet Shop… released NEXT TUESDAY!?!!?

Well folks, it seems that I was slightly off in my recent post about the 10218 Pet Shop. It is not being released in August, instead we only have to wait for a few days, until May 10th! I’m quite excited about this news! I recommend you check out Tazmandvl11’s photostream because he has lots of pictures of the set.

(For more information about the set please check out my recent post here)

10218 Pet Shop

Finally some photos of the upcoming Modular Building have been leaked!

10218 Pet Shop – $150 USD – August 2011

It looks interesting, with two smaller buildings put together, on the left it looks like a building that people live in? And on the right is, of course, the Pet Shop. I am disappointed though, I don’t see that many animals. One kitten, one dog, and one parrot doesn’t seem to be enough. I guess we’ll see when better pictures are released.
