Mini Cooper Mk. VII (Model #10242). It’s a mini Mini. Decked out in British Racing Green and packed with details -- even down to a picnic basket and blanket in the trunk -- this gorgeous model is a must for the auto enthusiast.

These are some photos of the new Lego sets for 2014 and early 2015.

I think that the Mini Cooper Mk. VII is really cool and I wish that I can own it 🙂

Lego had just unveiled some of these sets at the San Diego Comic Con.

City Police Station (Model #60047). City is one of Lego’s best-loved themes, and this new police station has everything you need for cops-and-robbers play. Police vehicles, a helicopter, cells, escape tunnels, cops, criminals: it’s all here, even down to the handcuffs.

High-Speed Passenger Train (Model #60051). Trains have been a mainstay Lego product for years, but this year’s is the most advanced yet. The sleek, high-tech lines hide a sleek, high-tech interior, boasting an eight-channel infra-red remote controller -- and it comes with enough track to build a good-sized loop.

Sandcrawler (Model #75059). Lego fans have been clamoring for a Sandcrawler kit for years. Lego has finally delivered. This hulking model is packed with working features and openable panels, and has a beautifully detailed interior.

Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! (Model #70816). Who could have predicted the Lego movie would be so good? A slew of sets based on the hit flick descended on stores this year, and this spaceship (spaceship, SPACESHIP!) is one of the best. A great set in its own right, it’ll appeal to older Lego fans with its 1980s style.

Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (Model #21108). So Ghostbusters has finally gotten old enough to acquire some retro-chic, eh? This model was designed by fans, not professional Lego designers, but it’s every bit as good as the stuff the pros come up with.

AT-AT (Model #75054). It’s not the largest AT-AT model Lego has ever produced, but it’s probably the strongest. If you’re the type who likes to play with your models as well as build them, this is your kit.

Our Solar System

13 06 2012

There used to be 9 planets and more than 170 moons in our solar system.

The 9 planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

But in August 2006, the International Astronomical Union decided to re-classify Pluto as a “dwarf planet”, and not in the same category as the 8 planets.

So now there are 8 planets in the solar system.

Each planet goes around the Sun on its own path called orbit.

Anyway we cannot see the paths because they are invisible.

Earth takes about 365 days to orbit the Sun.

This is called one Earth year.

And each moons moves around its planet in its own orbit.

The size of the planet from the smallest to the biggest:

  1. Mercury

  2. Mars

  3. Venus

  4. Earth

  5. Neptune

  6. Uranus

  7. Saturn

  8. Jupiter

On April 12, 1961, Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin became the first person who went to space.

People travel to space in a spacecraft or spaceship.

Discovery’s first flight was from August 30, 1984 to September 5, 1984.

It’s final flight was from February 24, 2011 to March 9, 2011.

—————————————————————-

Goplaga, Hilama and Meido prepared a surprise birthday party for Kamosa. Meido was Kamosa’s human friend who flew Kamosa’s spaceship from planet Earth to Saturn.

Meido

Kamosa was very happy. His friends gave him lots of presents. Meido gave Kamosa an Alienware laptop, an i Phone 4 and an i Pad. Hilama gave Kamosa a computer mouse, a CPU, a computer monitor and a computer speaker. Goplaga gave Kamosa a 4 players chess set, a house, an Adobe Photoshop CS4 CD, an Age of Empires 3 CD and a ‘Halo Wars’ CD.

After the birthday party Kamosa, Meido, Hilama, and Goplaga played the 4 players chess together. Meido won the game! Then, Meido decided to go to Pluto. Kamosa agreed and they all flew to Pluto in Kamosa’s spaceship.

On the way to Pluto, Goplaga saw a bunch of big noodles falling onto Pluto. But Hilama said that it was a giant piece of meat and Kamosa said that it were flying pepperonis. Meido said it was a spaceship flying to Pluto.

And Meido was right, it was a spaceship! The spaceship landed on Pluto.

Kamosa's spaceship and the spaceship that looks like meat, pepperonis and noodles.

When they arrived on Pluto, they met another alien friend named Emoden. Emoden had 2 eyes, 1 nose, 1 mouth, 2 hands and 2 legs. It was Emoden’s spaceship that looked like a giant meat, pepperonis and noodles.

Emoden

Meido said that Emoden was a funny alien.

Kamosa's spaceship.

It was Kamosa’s spaceship! Kamosa left it on planet Earth the last time he went to Earth to visit his friends. Kamosa met Goplaga on planet Earth. Goplaga invited Kamosa to fly in his spaceship to Saturn. Then Kamosa’s human friends sent Kamosa’s spaceship from Earth to Saturn.

Kamosa's spaceship flying to Neptune from Saturn.

Kamosa invited Goplaga for a trip to Neptune. Over there Goplaga and Kamosa met the Neptune alien named Hilama. Hilama has two purple wings, light blue face and one red eye.

Hilama, the alien from Neptune.

Kamosa wanted to play the ‘4 players chess’, but Kamosa left the cheess set in Goplaga’s room on Saturn. Kamosa was very sad…

Goplaga heard his iPhone ringing.

The next day, Goplaga’s iPhone reminded him of Kamosa’s birthday. When Goplaga heard the reminder ringing, Goplaga rushed to Alien Express and bought another ‘4 players chess’ set.

One day the alien Kamosa saw an alien from Saturn named Goplaga. Kamosa was an alien from Jupiter. The aliens from Saturn have 1000 tiny eyes, 300 feet and 10000 hands.

Goplaga invited Kamosa to visit Saturn. It was cold in Saturn and there were lots of blue purple trees. The aliens in Saturn were born from the trees.

Over there, Kamosa played 4 player chess with Goplaga. Goplaga controlled the blue and red pieces while Kamosa controlled the black and white pieces. When Kamosa and Goplaga finished playing chess, they heard a sound of a spaceship.

They saw a spaceship. (Click for a larger picture)

They went out and saw a spaceship from Planet Earth!
