It took $100,000 worth of Lego to recreate Jurassic Park with bricks

You have to be a monster to hate a movie like Jurassic Park, but it turns out there are fans so devoted to the film that they'll spend weeks and weeks painstakingly creating their own stop-motion version of the blockbuster using $100,000 worth of Lego—and some digital wizardry in post-production. » 3/20/15 1:36pm 3/20/15 1:36pm

A Giant Cubic Lego Ball Maze That's an Absolute Work of Art

Some people claim it's impossible to define what art is, but those people clearly haven't seen Flickr user Legohaulic's elaborate Lego cube that contains a twisting, turning ball maze on the inside. It's almost like a real-life version of an Escher sketch, and it equally deserves time in an art gallery. » 3/19/15 5:47pm 3/19/15 5:47pm

This Lego-Modded Glue Gun is A Handheld 3D Printer

Tired of the same old, boring laminated pattern that's in all of your 3D printed stuff? Industrial design student Vimal Patel was, and so he decided to fashion himself a 3D doodler, out of a hot glue gun which he modded with a custom Lego extruder. You know, obviously. » 3/15/15 10:00am 3/15/15 10:00am

The Simpsons Lego Kwik-E-Mart is the only place to buy Lego Squishees

As a follow-up to the Lego Simpsons house, one of the most impressive sets the company has ever released, Lego is giving fans of the animated series another one of Springfield's most iconic backdrops: an astonishingly detailed miniature version of Apu's Kwik-E-Mart. » 3/12/15 11:01am 3/12/15 11:01am

The BTTF clock tower scene perfectly recreated with Lego

If you needed any further proof that everything is better with Lego, the folks at Macro Lego Universe recreated the iconic clock tower scene from the end of the original Back to the Future movie. Given how successful The Lego Movie was, it's probably not a bad idea for Hollywood to just recreate every movie we've ever… » 3/05/15 12:18pm 3/05/15 12:18pm

A perfect functioning Lego combine will make you want to be a farmer

Unless you actually work on a farm, it's hard to get excited over toy versions of farming equipment. But Michał Skorupka—aka Eric Trax—has somehow made us want to tear down the Lamborghini and Ferrari posters on our walls, and replace them with images of a Claas Jaguar forage harvester. Or at least his perfect Lego… » 3/02/15 5:45pm 3/02/15 5:45pm

Holy Crap, This Lego TARDIS Console Room Is Magnificent

Wow. We're getting official Doctor Who Lego later this year, but I'm pretty sure not even Lego could top this remarkable replica of the 11th Doctor's Console Room by Flickr User Thorsten Bonsch. » 3/01/15 11:40am 3/01/15 11:40am

The Best Stuff At Toy Fair 2015

Once a year, toy companies from all over the world converge on New York to reveal what everyone will be fighting to buy their kids—or themselves—when the holidays roll around again. And once again we grabbed our cameras, put ourselves in the mind of a child (that was the easy part), and set out to find the most… » 2/17/15 3:19pm 2/17/15 3:19pm

Who Needs an Oculus Rift When You Can Just Strap Lego To Your Face

What's worse than mashing a Lego brick into the bottom of your foot? Mashing one into your face-parts (I would imagine). But. BUT! If it's as part of a DIY Lego-based VR headset, maybe it's worth it. » 2/12/15 10:20am 2/12/15 10:20am

To boldly go where someone can make this model properly

I have made hundreds of attempts to build a proper Enterprise over the years and it always looks like garbage. Leave it to Chris Melby (The Legendary ZMB) to come up with a proper Lego built U.S.S. Enterprise that actually looks fantastic and is huge to boot at over 5 feet in length. We wait with bated breath for… » 2/02/15 7:03pm 2/02/15 7:03pm

The Lego SHIELD Helicarrier is real and amazing

The 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair images show all the amazing upcoming Lego

The 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany goes into full swing tomorrow, but images have already started rolling in from those in attendance. There are tons of pictures being beamed out via twitter and various websites and I will try to consolidate them into this extremely picture heavy post. » 1/28/15 10:00am 1/28/15 10:00am

This is the best Interstellar  Lego model

Interstellar landed itself in the top 10 highest grossing movies of 2014 and it is no surprise that because of its popularity that dozens of cool Lego builds have popped up depicting the movie. This one, by jp_velociraptor, nails the theme perfectly. From the Ranger ship, which is mated to the perfectly selected… » 1/27/15 12:56pm 1/27/15 12:56pm

This is the Lego Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine

This morning, over at USA Today, we got a sneak peek of what's to come this August with the new Scooby-Doo Lego sets. In a new partnership between Warner Bros. Entertainment and The Lego Group, Scooby-Doo will appear in Lego form in an animated television special and some direct-to-video Lego movies. » 1/23/15 9:25am 1/23/15 9:25am

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 1/22/15 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
