Lego to launch first UK calendar

We’re suckers for all things Lego here at CR so were somewhat overexcited to hear about the first Lego calendar to be issued in the UK, with all profits going to the National Autistic Society

The calendar features a variety of Lego characters, many of them imperilled by everyday objects in scenarios relating to each month. All the LEGO elements used have been in production at some point – even the terrified expressions come from genuine Lego figures.

The calendar is the work of freelance designer/photographer Ben Watts who works in-house at Lego HQ in Slough. It will be available to buy from UK Lego Stores or at shop.lego.com from this week.

And, talking of Lego (just in case you haven’t seen it)…

(Thanks Ben)
