Youtube: Review of two US tanks and the new Jeep!

Published on 03.01.2019

So, for 2019 we have decided to publish a weekly Youtube video, too.

In the first video of the year, Marco introduces you to two special models from the series of our US tanks, a huge floating tank and a fast scouting tank. He also presents a new model: the legendary Jeep! Two automobile companies made more than 600,000 pieces of this car during World War II.

In the latest Youtube video, Marco introduces three new freight cars: the little brother of our large regular sized flat wagon, an open class E freight wagon and a huge low loader wagon. As always Marco has some interesting information about the models of our models and shows the cars in action.

Currently, the first of our freight cars are already out of stock, but of course are re-produced. In our shop you can already see a lot of other freight cars, passenger cars and the first locomotives!

Just in time for Christmas, our third big Manhattan module has been released! The Foley Square and its surrounding skyscrapers was rebuilt out of 1214 bricks.

In the current video, Marco presents the module in detail and tells which striking buildings and squares you can discover. For example, did you know that in New York City there is a 170-meter-high house without windows?

Just in time for Christmas, the next Manhattan module has arrived! The 1214-piece Foley Square fits the north side of City Hall and is the third major set of our Manhattan construction project after the World Trade Center.

The Bluebrixx Specials section of our webshop is growing rapidly and soon we will divide it into subsections. In addition to the many now available sets, you will also find isolated products with red markings that are currently out of stock and will be reproduced later. Do not worry, every one of our products comes back!

Especially exciting are the sets with the green mark "coming soon". Here you will find a lot of very different topics:

- 12 more freight cars, some of which should arrive in the next few days

- the first 3 fire engines, for which we are missing only the sticker sheets

- The Manhattan module "Foley Square", which could arrive here before Christmas

- The next Manhattan module "Brookfield Place", the first module on the banks of the Hudson!

- new military sets of the Wehrmacht, US troops and as terrain

- the first passenger cars and locomotives!

- a spaceship and a flying car!

Some of the new products will take a while to be produced and to be stocked, others are already on their way to us. But you can easily find out when your favorite set arrived: on each product page of the sets that will be available soon you will find a button "Inform, if available" and you can deposit your e-mail adress. As soon as the set goes on sale you will be the first to find out!

Christmas is approaching and Marco presents in the new Youtube video three products that have just arrived.

The first Bluebrixx Special offers you to build 24 trees of different sizes and shapes. With over 500 bricks, the set is a great supplier of dioramas!

Our first freight cars are now joined by a closed car with brakeman's cab, perfect for the end of a freight train. The doors can be opened, too.

In our first book, "Panzer aus Noppensteinen", we introduce four iconic tanks of World War II, including background information, pics and detailed instructions. With the help of the illustrated parts list you can build the models with bricks from your own collection, but you can also find the tanks in our shop.

Two new videos have been released on Youtube this week! In the first video Marco sets up the German battleship Tirpitz, a model by Cobi with 1982 bricks. Since that took over 4 hours, the video was a little bit faster and the parts are just flying together.

Our product designer has so much to tell about the model that we made a second video. A review about the product. Marco reports on the construction process, the parts and the stickers and then he gives his personal opinion about the set. Sneak Peek: he had a lot of fun!

Here's the video: https://youtu.be/YoXFEZZl3xA

Bluebrixx specials on the online store

Published on 04.12.2018

On the online store of bluebrixx.com we offer a lot of bricks sets by different manufacturers, from bags with single bricks to large architectural models. Of course, the Bluebrixx specials, which we develop and produce ourselves, are particularly important to us.

Especially for our own brand Bluebrixx-Specials we have revised our webshop. For some days now, all our products have always been visible, even if they are currently not on stock. These are then marked as "CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK".

Even new sets that are in production are shown in the shop before they are released, marked with "coming soon". You can even be notified by email when an out of stock set gets on stock again or an interesting novelty arrived!
