LEGO BrickHeadz Anatomy Custom Figure!

We wrap up this week with a custom LEGO build from a viewer mailbag, a show and tell of a vinyl collectible, and a test of a smartphone boom arm mount for filming small builds at home. This custom BrickHeadz was designed by Jonathan Klamm, as a tribute to artist Jason Freeny's anatomical sculptures. A fun and simple build you can find the pieces to put together yourself! Have a happy and safe Memorial Day, everyone!

Check out Jonathan's LEGO Ideas submission for this design here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b19aab30-743c-424f-a742-b3ae11984c82

Phantom: Covert Ops Preview and Spaceteam VR Review!

This week, we take a look at two VR games: the upcoming Phantom: Covert Ops and the just-released Spaceteam VR. Here's how Phantom: Covert Ops works as a stealth action game where you move around the world in a virtual kayak. We paddle through the first part of the game to get a sense of its unique gameplay and comfort level. Plus, Spaceteam VR may be just what we need in a VR party game while we're all stuck at home!
