What do you get the LEGO loving lover in your life? How about LEGO set #10280, the 756-piece Creator Flower Bouquet? The $50 flower set makes the perfect gift to build with your special someone and is being released just in time for Valentine’s Day.
I’ve said it before, LEGO is an amazing thing. You can build so many useful things with these little bricks and their accessories. Why are we not building more houses out of this stuff? This heavy-lifting system is a good example of how strong a LEGO structure can be.
There’s not much that’s cuter than Baby Yoda. LEGO clearly agrees and has just announced a new official LEGO set based on The Child from The Mandalorian. LEGO set number 75318 is as adorable as you’d expect and will make a great addition to any Star Wars fan’s bookshelf or desktop.
It takes a whole lot of work to create stop-motion animation. After all, the characters and scenery in each and every frame need to be precisely positioned before snapping each still image. At the traditional film rate of 24 frames per second, you need to shoot 1440 individual photos for one minute of footage.
Something is appealing to me about the aesthetics of old personal computers from the ’80s and ’90s. I know they’re not streamlined or sleek like the stuff that Apple is churning out these days, but I liked that those old machines felt more purposeful in their design.
These days, it’s impossible to look back at the movies of the great Mel Brooks without somebody getting their panties in a bunch about their lack of political correctness. To that, I say, “lighten up.” Comedy is supposed to push boundaries, and poke fun at people’s sensitivities and societal norms.
I love LEGO, and I love Nintendo games, so when I first heard the two companies were partnering up, I thought it could result in some really great collaborations. While the first LEGO Super Mario kits were definitely targeted to little kids, and not overgrown kids like me, their newly-announced set is definitely up my alley.
Among my many geeky pursuits, two of my favorites are classic arcade games and LEGO. So when I stumbled onto this collection of custom LEGO arcade machines, I had to bust open the piggy bank (aka my PayPal account) – since that’s where I save my spare change to buy stuff that I don’t NEED but that I really WANT.
An orrery is one of those mechanical representations of the Solar System that rotates scale objects so you can see how they orbit each other. This LEGO orrery has none of that scale BS to deal with, and skips all planets but Earth, the flat center of the galaxy.
Baby Yoda (aka “The Child”) is arguably the most adorable character in the history of Star Wars. We love his expressions, his curiosity, and the fact that he also has badass Jedi powers. LEGO has their own official Baby Yoda minifig in the works, but the only way to get one initially will be with the $129 Razor Crest model, and even then you’ll have to wait until September to get one.
The original Star Wars trilogy is packed with memorable moments. Among them was the scene in Return of the Jedi where Princess Leia, wearing not much more than a metal bikini, uses the very chains that bind her to strangle her captor, Jabba the Hutt.
Give a geek some LEGO and great things happen. Kevin J. Walter is one such geek who loves to build awesome things with the versatile building blocks. This awesome thing is a Klingon Bird of Prey and it took 25,000 blocks to build.
Since I’ve mostly been using a laptop, an iPad and an iMac, it’s been a while since I had a computer with an upgradeable graphics card. But back in the day, I was constantly gunning for the latest and greatest graphics processors to play games like Quake II and Duke Nukem 3D at the fastest frame rate possible.
Of the many things I’ve enjoyed in my life, LEGO bricks and belgian waffles are pretty high on the list. So I was pretty stoked when I saw this waffle maker that lets you combine these two passions of mine into one.
LEGO bricks are some of the most awesome things on earth. They’re incredibly versatile for building all kinds of structures, and you can make some pretty impressive machines with them when you combine them with Technic and Mindstorms parts.
With Easter coming up, it’s almost egg decorating time! A few years back, LEGO builder Jason Allemann aka JK Brickworks made his own version of Evil Mad Scientist’ Eggbot using the parts that are in the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit 31313.
