It’s amazing when you think about how many Star Wars statues are around the world, some in the oddest places. Kyle Gilbert is one of the people responsible for bringing just a bit of that galaxy far, far away into our world.
Think the BBQ grill on your back deck is impressive? Get a load of this custom-built grilling station, which was built into the side of a jet engine. As a bonus, if this thing gets hit by a bird, you can just toss it on the grill and hit it with some barbeque sauce.
A group of LEGO builders recently built a giant 8-foot by 4-foot LEGO Han Solo in carbonite. Because why not? It was made to promote the 2020 release of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo aka E3.
Over the years around here, we have perused ThinkGeek on the daily looking for cool stuff that geeks would want. We’ve also purchased more than a few of those geeky items for ourselves. I still have that air guitar shirt that plays music around here somewhere.
LEGO makes some really cool kits, but as far as I know, they’ve never released a set that looked like an arcade machine. But after seeing this awesome build by brick-building expert Frostbricks, I really hope they consider it.
Pac-Man was the first video game I ever played in the arcade back in the day. I remember not making it very long because I was always trying to gobble up the power pellets, and didn’t do a good job evading the ghosts.
Move over Thanos. The Infinity Gauntlet is no longer the ultimate power in the universe. The Infinity Saucelet is a much more powerful gauntlet. This bad boy was 3D printed by Instagram user unnecessaryinventions. It looks just like the Infinity Gauntlet, but instead of gems it has holders for six fast food dipping sauce containers.
LEGO doesn’t make an official Godzilla set, but it should, and it should look exactly like this guy. He looks awesome, and is pretty smooth considering he’s made entirely of LEGO bricks. This LEGO MOC Godzilla by Redditor u/frenchybricksjunky is just amazing, and arrived on the scene in time for Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Drone designer Adam Woodworth has created some cool drones in the past like Imperial Star Destroyers for instance, but this one is even better: a giant LEGO helicopter. It looks like it came out of a genuine LEGO set, except it’s much bigger.
Back in the day, we went to the carnival when it came to town each year. Everyone seemed to win those glass mirror squares with different sayings on them by throwing darts at balloons. Often there were a bunch of broken ones scattered around the parking lot.
A few years back we talked about the Star Trek TNG Captain Picard Facepalm bust. Picard gave Star Trek fans many things to like and perhaps the most Picardian thing he did was usher in the facepalm meme that we all find useful when someone does something so stupid that words fail us.
Animated flip books are usually pretty cute and simple. This one, however, is complex and terrifying. The artistry that went into this creation is just inspiring. In this flip book, no one can hear you scream.
Those of you who looked at that massive custom Harry Potter Hogwarts diorama, and want to build something a little less ambitious, LEGO has announced that it is bringing a series of new, official Harry Potter kits to market.
If Thanos had started off as a clown performing at a kid’s birthday party, this is the Infinity Gauntlet we would have seen – right before he turned half the kids to dust. It’s a pretty cool work of balloon art actually.
It’s always cool when someone goes off the books to create something awesome with LEGO bricks. Take builder Mathieu BL. The guy spent 1,200 hours designing and building an intricate model of the iconic Harry Potter locale Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, complete down to the quidditch stadium behind the castle.
