This double engined Lego plane should be in an air show

Sylon-tw has shared this crazy plane build that looks like something out of a WWII era comic book. It has bent wings like a Corsair so it is sure to give the whistle of death before it attacks. The smoothness of this build is only made cooler when you realize that this thing also some sort of weird hybrid rotary and… » 1/22/15 1:08pm Thursday 1:08pm

This Lego build is no burnout 

This build popped up in my feed and I wondered at first what pictures of matches was doing in a collection of Lego constructions. It wasn't until I zoomed in that I realized that Carl Merriam had built a beautiful MOC for the HARDnuary building challenge. The size of the build is actually much larger than what it… » 1/16/15 1:32pm 1/16/15 1:32pm

Return to the moon with this stellar Lego build

Constructed for the current Iron Builder competition, where a seed part is necessary in the build, Sean and Steph Mayo have cooked up several amazing builds over the last couple weeks. This one really struck home with me. Lunar Lego Landing shows a revisit to the moon with amazing use of the seed part on the wheels… » 1/16/15 12:51pm 1/16/15 12:51pm

The Lego Movie Oscars Snub Is Garbage

This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences—an institution that in March of 1995 declared Forrest Gump to be a superior film to Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption, and Quiz Show (Quiz Show!)—has decided that The Lego Movie is not one of the five best animated movies of last year. This is not a snub.… » 1/15/15 11:04am 1/15/15 11:04am

Watch this time lapse of a ground up construction of Lego modulars

Alex Phillips has shared a super interesting time lapse video of him constructing (or reconstructing) his entire collection of Lego modular buildings in a most interesting fashion. Normally, people build these things one at a time, level by level, but he chose to video the ground up construction of all of the… » 1/14/15 4:29pm 1/14/15 4:29pm

52 weeks of Lego vignettes show a very weird 2014

Ted Andes has shared 52 consecutive weeks of building. Each of the small Lego scenes was placed on an approximately eight stud square base for each week of 2014. Some are depictions of the holidays or events that week, others are just tributes to various shows or ideas. The entire collection is worth checking out,… » 1/08/15 9:30am 1/08/15 9:30am

This Lego-inspired furniture shouldn't just be for children

When you were a kid, did you ever imagine living in a house filled with Lego furniture? Well, thanks to the Lola Glamour, now you can—sort of. The Spanish designer has created a line of Lego-inspired furniture for kids. Of course, fun-loving adults are obviously allowed to buy it, too. » 1/07/15 9:23am 1/07/15 9:23am

Someone send this man some LEGO so he can make a full-body exoskeleton

You know that box of old LEGO blocks under your childhood bed? (Or your current bed.) Now's the time to surrender at least a handful of them for the greater good of humanity. In this case, the greater good involves helping Milan Sekiz build a full-body exoskeleton out of LEGO. » 1/05/15 3:19pm 1/05/15 3:19pm

This Lego Toyota pickup is better than Marty McFly's

First things first: Paul Kim's self-designed Lego 1983 Toyota Hilux is not the truck from Back to the Future. But when you build a black '80s Toyota on beefy tires with a rollbar and yellow fog lights, comparisons tend to be made. And given the details in Paul's Lego truck, his would beat Marty's any day of the week. » 12/26/14 5:59pm 12/26/14 5:59pm

Do you want to build a snowman? Where to find the Lego Frozen set

Combine Lego and Frozen and you have a recipe for one of the most sought after toys this Christmas. The problem is that Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle (41062) isn't slated for release by Lego until January 1st of 2015. Fortunately, if you know how to look and where to look, you might just find this set buried in the… » 12/23/14 5:23pm 12/23/14 5:23pm

Figure painters will appreciate this Lego build

Having done some some miniature painting in my day, I really appreciate this build. Peter Reid has done an amazing job of giving the impression of these Lego minifigures, still on the sprue, being customized for the Exo-Suit. The scene here is perfect, from the tools and paintbrushes to the amazing tile work for the… » 12/23/14 8:30am 12/23/14 8:30am

This working Lego zoetrope creates fighting ninja action

Constructed for the round 7 of the MOC Olympics, Ian Spacek has given us the ultimate in old tech moving pictures. Spin up this early animation technique and peer through the slots in the brick and you will see fighting ninja. I've never seen anything like this done for a building contest. Awesome build! » 12/18/14 4:12pm 12/18/14 4:12pm
