Last week Brian and I recorded three episodes of Built from Bricks. One of the segments was a side-by-side speed build of the LEGO set Iron Man: Detroit Steel Strikes. This is set number 76077. While filming I forgot that the camera only films 15 minutes at a time and then stops. So, as we built and we talked the camera stopped. We missed the entire end of the video where we see who won the speed build. You’ll have to wait to find out which of us built Lola faster.
Today Andrew and I built the rest of the set. We built Iron man, Justin Hammer and Detroit Steel. I like the whole set. There are some great pieces in it including Lola, Coulson and Detroit Steel. Iron man comes with these little pieces that clip on to his hands and then when you press on them they pop off and fire at the bad guys. Detroit Steel has a Gatling gun on one arm and a giant saw on the other. It is pretty posable as well.
I also decided that while shooting the photos I would incorporate Brian’s SigFig into the shoot. Poor Brian caught up in Detroit Steel’s grip.

When Eva was two years old she watched Mary Poppins about 45 times. We would watch it daily for weeks on end. She just became obsessed with it. Having her watch it at first was my idea. We were going to Walt Disney World for the first time with her and I booked a character breakfast that had Mary Poppins as one of the characters. We wanted to make sure that Eva knew who who Mary Poppins was. She liked her so much that Allison knit her Mary Poppins’ scarf. Meeting Mary Poppins was a huge highlight for Eva’s trip and we continued to watch the movie over and over. I’m excited about this upcoming movie because I think Eva will like it very much. Emily Blunt is playing Mary Poppins in MARY POPPINS RETURNS, the all new sequel to Disney’s 1964 film MARY POPPINS and I have the first image of her in that role.
