Tonight viewers could spend part of their Valentine’s Day with Brian and Me as we did a Built from Bricks Livestream. Everything was going great. We were chatting with viewers, livestreaming a challenge and then the microphone stopped working. We were unable to get it started right away and had to actually switch to one of the mics on a webcam. Unfortunately that took about 10 minutes and we ended up losing the people who were viewing. I have made an edit to the video using YouTube that should cut out the dead air time. The speed build was really fun despite that setback.

We built the LEGO Movie 2 set, UltraKatty and Warrior Lucy. It is a fun build of UniKitty in her hulked-out mode. I like that this set works with the set of Emmett and his getaway car from the beginning of the movie. That was a great way to make these sets feel more like the movie. I like that LEGO did that.

We also recorded a couple additional things to make some more episodes as we post every Wednesday and Sunday of each week.
