Guest bloggers, at

From this October Eric (Blakbird *), Paul (Sariel) and myself (Fernando, Conchas) will join the Design Blog from Design Studio, at

Guess none of these names should be now unfamiliar to you, as consequence of the diverse contributions we all have continuously made towards the LEGO Technic fans community, for already some time.
Paul with his astonishing production of new Technic MOCs (, Eric who's untiringly writing the most comprehensive online encyclopedia about all the LEGO Technic sets ever released (Technicopedia) and myself leading the present Blog (TechnicBRICKs).

This collaboration is an initiative which aims to improve the dynamics and readership of Design Blog at Design Studio, feeding it with diverse topics and new content, towards the main LEGO Technic target group (boys aged 9-13).
The goal is to get a few posts published every month by these LEGO Technic fans, well known from you, together with other posts the LEGO Technic designers will continue to write, as they have been doing for sometime. Although some more regularity is also expected on these.

Hope you all, to feel this as a beneficial initiative from the LEGO Technic team, for all the LEGO Technic community in general and the younger now initiating, in particular.

See you then, now also at!

*) This bios will be added to the 'Designer Bios' section, in the next few days.

Congrats guys!

Any free Technic parts in return? How many friction pins per word are they paying you :)

Eric Albrecht said...


Friction pins have been highly devalued as a currency due to rampant inflation caused by a flood of friction pins on the market when Technic went studless. I would prefer to be paid in 1x6 thin yellow liftarms or Power Puller tires.

Sariel said...

By the way, I have just gotten the 3rd and 4th Power Puller wheel that I was missing so far. But that is a pure coincidence ;)

Alex Campos said...

Congratulations to the three of you!

From your accomplishments to the online world of LEGO TECHNIC, your new "jobs" as guest writers at the official TECHNIC site are fully deserved, and I wish you the best of luck!

(also I wish you can bring in some nice goodies in the form of new parts, sets, techniques and such... yum yum!)

@Eric: LOL, how true! :D

My new plan to retire early by working part time:
CNC high precision nonabrasive waterjet cutting machine + a few dozen 1 x 7 thin yellow liftarms

Congrats to all three of you!

BTW, does anyone know of an easy way to keep track of new posts at the Technic Blog? Since it isn't a 'real' blog I cannot add it to my google reader :P

Maybe it will become possible in the near future.
