According to LEGO and NASA, the space shuttle and space station flying on STS-134 will become part of the LEGO City line.

There are other new sets planned, including a "Satellites" set and exclusive to NASA sets -- not to be sold to the public -- that create interior scenes to the International Space Station.

Unlike the 2003 Discovery series of NASA-theme sets, these new NASA partnership LEGO sets will not include minifigures with the NASA logo, but NASA-provided educational information will be included with each set sold to the public.

I hope that helps clarify what is flying. We have a few more articles/features planned about the LEGO and NASA partnership, which we'll be publishing over the next few weeks and months.

LEGO New Official Products-Flower Vase (Just available in France)

Source From: Brickset - http://www.brickset.com/news/article/?ID=980

Didier brings us news of a range of limited edition flower vase kits available in French florists. He says there are three different ones, available in three different chains of florists. They are individually numbered and only between 700 and 1150 of each are being made. He's sent pictures of two of them which I've added here.

You'll be relieved to hear that the kits also come with a glass or plastic container that fits inside them to hold the water: without it a vase made of LEGO would be as much use as a chocolate teapot :-)

Didier believes that Rene Hoffmeister, the German LEGO Certified Professional, designed them. Rene is a good friend of Brickset: he hosts our library of set images.

Expect to see some at eBay.fr going for extortionate prices soon...

Update: the third design is shown here: http://www.femmeactuelle.fr/jardin/plante-d-interieur__1/vases-en-lego-monceau-fleurs-00476/(page)/2. The page also confirms Rene as the designer.

Buy Mega Bloks Probuilder Bikes Set

The Mega Bloks Probuilder range was a series of incredibly detailed models based on Ships, Aircraft, Cars, Spaceships, Motorbikes etc released by Mega Bloks. These sets had an enormous amount of bricks and the models could take hours if not days to complete. These Probuilder sets are similar to Lego "Model Team" sets although they have slightly less bricks and tend to be built mostly from simple bricks. This makes them easier to construct

New LEGO Set--Police Station Year 2011

LEGO Star Wars Diorama at LEGOLand Germany

According to the news report here (translated), LEGOLand Germany will have a special diorama section in Miniland devoted to LEGO Star Wars. Not only that, but it seems that it will be at minifig scale instead of the usual miniland scale. The new section is scheduled to open in June 2011.
Thanks to minicoop for the news!
