LEGO MBA Level 4 | Master Builder Academy

Lego-MBA-Level-4The next series in the Lego Master Builder Academy has been announced with LEGO MBA Level 4 focussing on the inventive designs of Leonardo DiVinci with a bit of steampunk and architecture thrown in.

The first series had a space theme, the second a vehicle focus while the third emphasised architecture. This latest level of the MBA is branching out to a bit of everything – architecture, steampunk and inventions.

The new series is (still) only available to residents of the US and Canada and will be out in July 2013.

Here is a Lego Master Builder Academy Level 4 PDF with all the details or you can read the description below:

Launch your Invention Designer adventure!

LEGO Master Builders merge the futuristic idea of time travel with the clockwork gears and puffing steam engines of the Victorian 1800’s – Steampunk! Steampunk is a science fiction art form that imagines the future as people might have in the past. Let it inspire all kinds of new ideas, and pick up some tips from professional LEGO designers on how to make your creations look futuristic, industrial or just plain cool!

Whether it’s Roman windows, Asian temples or medieval houses, mastering these styles expands your building skills and helps you see new uses for all your LEGO pieces!

Follow In the Footsteps oF the great Inventor Leonardo Da Vinci!

Lego Master Builder Academy Kit 2 Arrives!

Lego Master Builder Academy Kit 2After I bought the Lego Master Builder Academy Kit 1 I immediately signed up to receive the rest of the kits by subscription.

I have been working through the first kit and enjoying the experience and yesterday I received the second kit in the mail.

Unlike kit 1, the Lego Master Builder Academy Kit 2 doesn’t come in a box but is shipped in a padded bag, the pieces in a Lego plastic bag and the instruction book loose.

I was concerned initially about their condition when they arrived, but the kit arrived in perfect condition and looks just as good as kit 1.

While the color scheme is the same as the first kit, the focus of  this one is Micro building, a technique that I have been fascinated with for some time but a little intimidated by.

I know this kit will be a great way to get me past my trepidation and onto building some awesome tiny sculptures.

I will post more about the first two kits as I go through them myself and share them with my son.

Personally I think these kits are great for kids and their parents. What better way to connect with your kids than through building and learning about Lego?

What about you?
