No, they're based on the movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0811080/?ref_=nv_sr_1) that was released a few years back (although obviously that was based off the cartoon). These are the official sets ...

The upside: whoever was selling blue train track parts on bricklink must have made a killing. The downside: I feel sorry for anybody else trying to buy those parts. I'm guessing the market is pret...

Yeah, that's one of my top webcomics that I check regularly. It's a pretty nerdy one, and they've had more than one comic involving LEGO.

Indeed, Steffen. We're now below 300 parts held and significantly fewer parts needing more votes, but, of course, there is always more work to be done. That's one of the things I've discovered as ...
