    The September 2017 Monthly Mini Model Build instructions are now available! If you are unable to attend the mini model build session, you can use your own personal pieces to recreate your own Mini LEGO Dinosaur. Looks like there’s quite a bit of green pieces in this Dinosaur. ( :

    LEGO Collection Stolen

    Brian Richards, a LEGO fan recently has his LEGO Collection stolen. Its very unfortunate that there are people out there that steals people’s LEGO collections. ) :

    We ask the LEGO Community to be on the lookout. To learn more about his LEGO collection and how you can help, please read below and visit his site. Hopefully, he is able to get his LEGO collection back. Thanks to forum member Jeffery for alerting us regarding this.

    When did this happen?

    Sometime after 12:00am ET on Aug 28 (when I got into bed) and 9:00am ET on Aug 28 (when I returned to my basement office) some person(s) invaded my home and relieved our basement of practically every piece of LEGO. And that’s it. None of our expensive electronics (computers, monitors, microphones, etc.), none of my expensive camera equipment (body, lenses, lighting, etc.), none of my woodworking tools (table saw, mitre saw, drill press, router table, etc), or any other things of any kind.

    My office, stripped of LEGO

    How can someone help?

    Our collective hunch is that the sets are being sold off individually and the rest of the pieces sold in one or many bulk lots. The best way you can help is to keep your eyes peeled for used LEGO that’s up for sale. Maybe via Craigslist, maybe via Facebook, maybe via ebay, or pawn shops, or elsewhere. The seller is probably going to list them within a couple hundred miles of Grandville, MI (49418).

    Please either contact the Grandville Police directly via 616-538-6110 or GVPD@cityofgrandville.com or email me privately. My email address is my first name at this domain.

    The LEGO Group has announced that its revenue has declined by 5% for the first half of 2017. Future plans from LEGO include a smaller and simpler organization. LEGO is also planning to reducing its total global workforce by 8% by the end of 2017 which would eliminate about 1400 positions. Currently, there are about 18,200 employees.

    2017 First Half Financial Highlights (compared to first half 2016)

    • Revenue down 5 percent to DKK 14.9 billion compared with DKK 15.7 billion
    • Operating profit down 6 percent to DKK 4.4 billion compared with DKK 4.7 billion
    • Net profit down 3 percent at DKK 3.4 billion compared with DKK 3.5 billion
    • Cash flow from operating activities was DKK 4.6 billion compared with DKK 3.9 billion

    Plan for smaller and simpler organisation

    Knudstorp said: “In the process, we have added complexity into the organisation which now in turn makes it harder for us to grow further. As a result, we have now pressed the reset-button for the entire Group. This means we will build a smaller and less complex organisation than we have today, which will simplify our business model in order to reach more children. It will also impact our costs. Finally, in some markets the reset entails addressing a clean-up of inventories across the entire value chain. The work is well under way.”

    As a consequence of the plans, the LEGO Group believes it would need to reduce its total global workforce by around eight per cent. This would impact approximately 1,400 positions, the majority before the end of 2017.  Currently the LEGO Group employs approximately 18,200 people.
