In the beginning (mid 2018), I began my adult obsession with LEGO. I started by collecting Star Wars sets only! But it didn’t take long before I had built a city and pretty much dabbled in all themes up until now… Jump forward to more recently and I began my search for alternative brands such as Cobi. The reason, Cobi have tapped into a market where LEGO will not ever go, military! From a young age I have been obsessed with a few things LEGO and military models being another (mainly Airfix and the likes), So what better way to share my passion with you all is to bring you something that has and will bring endless hours of joy.Brick McBricksworth 2021

Who is Cobi?
Cobi is a Polish manufacturer of military themed brick building sets. The company was founded in 1987, producing puzzles and board games. In 1992, it started producing bricks with the interlocking stud and tube system… But what makes Cobi the king among military-themed brick set manufacturers, Aside from their focus on quality and historical accuracy? They are continuously advancing year on year with pad printing and new parts all whilst maintaining high EU quality standards. Best of all it’s compatible with Lego.
Who is LEGO?
LEGO is undoubtedly the market leader in the brick world. From it’s beginnings in the carpentry workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen in Billund, Denmark. In 1916. Move forward to 1932 where Ole Kirk’s shop started making wooden toys such as piggy banks, pull toys, cars and trucks, and houses. This is also where they took the name LEGO meaning “play well” in Danish. In 1958 over 25 years after LEGO had been founded they took out a patent on the brick we all know and love. Since then the last significant patent for Lego bricks expired in 1978, paving the way for other companies to be able to break into the block market.
