We already knew Lego’s new Porsche 911 GT3 RS Technic set weighed in at a whopping 2,704 pieces, and measures almost two feet long when fully constructed. But the complex build takes so long that even an accelerated timelapse video of it being assembled is still over 25 minutes. But it’s not like you have anything…
Lego just officially confirmed that its massive 2,704-piece Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS set will be available on June 1 for the hefty sum of $300. Originally teased at the Nuremberg Toy Fair wearing dazzle camo to hide its curves and final design, the creation is quite simply a work of art.
The Porsche is a popular choice for Lego enthusiasts looking to test their modelling skills, but leave it to the toymaker’s official builders to absolutely nail the curves and contours that make the 911 so recognizable on this new Technic set.
In all of its beauty, the Alfa Romeo 4C quickly climbed the charts as one of my favorite attainable super-cars. When they released the images of the Spider version, my lust grew even stronger. Jeroen Ottens has now made a Lego Technic version, melding together two great loves of mine in one beautiful package.
I have learned that just about everything that Sariel makes is golden. His prowess in Technic builds is completely evident after just spending a few moments looking at all the great constructions that he's done over the years. Armed with SBrick, a tiny RC receiver that lets you control Lego power functions from your…
A confidential Lego catalog for 2015 has been leaked, revealing 121 images of new sets. Users have posted a full mirror of the 121-image haul here, including some really cool models like this Flatiron Building in the Architecture line:
The latest Lego Mindstorms set is totally mind-blowing. You can command 5 different model robots with WiFi, bluetooth or smartphone. The programming capabilities are endless. We've reached out to Lego, but so far no official statement on whether the EV3 comes preprogrammed to obey Asimov's Laws of Robotics.
The Blackbird SR-71 is a legendary Cold War spy plane, faithfully recreated here with Lego. Built by Lego Technic expert Pawel "Sariel" Kimiec, it features "motorized elevons, rotating and illuminated engines, motorized control mast and custom stickers." Clocking in at 73.6 cm long, this is one badass and beautiful…
With the breakneck speed at which new DSLRs are released, photography seems to have traded a bit of its soul for the pursuit of ever more megapixels. So, Carl-Frederic Salicath of Norway has taken a step back from the digital revolution and has built his own working retro 120mm-film camera. Here's how.
Mexican Viking took some Lego Mindstorms, standard Lego pieces and two empty ketchup bottles to create this pancake-making robot.
The European truck most noted for its complete badassedness is the Mercedes-Benz Unimog — a vehicle so large the company determined Americans would find it offensively huge. Now LEGO is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the truck by building a scale 2,000+ piece version that's the largest Technic set ever sold.
Inspired by real-life AVLBs (armored vehicle-launched bridges), brickmaster Mahj set about creating the Stilzkin EXT3 Bridge Launcher. The result is impressive. The music? Gravy.
Give this Lego Avatar helicopter a few aerodynamic tweaks, a slightly more powerful engine and a pilot spouting off canned, predictable dialogue, and I could easily see it taking flight, literally, to fight the Na'Vi.
Here's a tight piece of Lego machinery, a machine that knits stuff. It'll knit you a scarf, some knickers, or anything it damn well pleases. Made by Tom Johnson, the knitting machine is based on the Lego Technic sets. It works a bit slowly, but that adds an even creepier robotic, Matrix-esque feel to it. Almost as if…
