    Barad Dûr: A Slice of Life in Mordor
    Welcome back to another special episode of Extra Pieces! Today's episode takes us to the Land of Mordor, where the shadows lie, any by shadows, we mean a 5,471-piece 73cm tall Barad-Dur LEGO set, that's due to be released on the 1st of June!

    Last year, we dedicated an entire episode to Rivendell, and we felt like we had to do the same for Barad-Dur, lest we upset the Dark Lord Sauron, so here's a deep geeky dive into all things Barad-Dur, Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings!

    Episode Notes
    Well, that was an unexpected hiatus: no sooner did we get the last episode up onto the inter webs, and Jay went on holiday!

    We are back, well partially! We are back! Well, partially: Richard is out of town at a conference, and it was from the hotel bedroom that he recorded this episode. In case you got any weird background noises, or the episode just doesn’t quite sound the same.

    It's May which means that a whole heap of 2nd half 2024 sets just got revealed!

    In this episode, we discuss May the 4th Star Wars sets, LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 26 Space minifigures, and more!

    Episode Notes

    Welcome Back:
    We apologise again for a slightly extended break: in this episode, you can hear the full story why. It’s not what you might expect!
    In this episode:
    Jay talks us through the long-awaited 21438 Dungeons and Dragons: A Red Dragon’s Tale set that was revealed a few weeks ago.
    https://jaysbrickblog.com/reviews/review-lego-21348-dungeons-and-dragons-red-dragons-tale/

    Richard presents the 40683 Flower Trellis Display, available in early April (and again in late May/June) as a gift with purchase. The threshold of $USD150/GBP135/AUD240 is easily achieved if you are eyeing off some of the larger sets, less so if you if you aren’t.
    https://ramblingbrick.com/2024/03/28/40683-flower-trellis-display/

    There are some other terrific releases coming out in April, including
    LEGO City 60439 Space Science Lab https://ramblingbrick.com/2024/03/23/60439-space-science-lab-hands-on-early-review/
    LEGO Technic 42196 Lamborghini Huracán

    Extra Pieces: LIVE! at Brickvention 2024.

    Extra Pieces Live!
    Expect audio anomalies galore as Jay and Richard record an episode in front of a live audience on Convention Day (January 19th) at Brickvention 2024, in Melbourne Australia. Not only is it our first live episode, it's also the first time we have recorded an episode while being in the same room, during daylight hours!

    We talk about life as LEGO Bloggers, as a hobby or profession; the joy of reviewing LEGO, stickers, no stickers, Space and we share our advice for fledgling Content Creators.

    We also take a little Q&A from the audience.
    Thanks to everyone who came to say hi during the event: its always awesome to catch up with listeners and readers in real life.

    There's a live convention with around 600 attendees happening in the background, so the audio quality is a little different to our regular episodes. We want to thank the organising committee for the opportunity.

    We'll be back with a regular episode soon. So, don't forget to subscribe through your favourite podcasting app.

This a really good podcast. I listened to the lads talk about the Lego Eiffel Tower model and it was great. Listening to Jay and Richard talk about their enjoyment of Lego is a pleasure.
