D’oh! Lego Invades Springfield to Make Homer a True Blockhead!

It’s no secret that the ultimate gift anyone can get me is the Lego Star Wars Death Star. It’s my #1 most-requested gift and even if I’m in my 90s in some old-age home somewhere down the line, I will own this thing before I die!

Alice earned her wizarding stripes by putting together a massive, as in ginormous, Lego Hogwarts set. It took her roughly 12 months and over 40,000 Lego bricks to put this sucker together. And to say it’s breathtaking …

While the seriously hysterical Lego Star Wars DVD The Empire Strikes Out is on sale now (I highly recommend it!), what I’m writing about is a very different kind of Easter Egg. It’s the kind you hide and hunt in the …
