LEGO Porsche 911 GT3 Subjected to Real Crash Test
Growing up, I got into more than a few brawls at day care over wheels to make my LEGO cars. I would then proceed to crash them repeatedly until parts were everywhere, then leave the mess and blame that weird kid who ate glue all the time.

This Sugar Skull Automaton Is Made Of LEGO Pieces

This awesome custom LEGO build was created by Brother Steven, and it looks just like a desert cactus, complete with a flowering top, and lots of nasty thorns to keep any LEGO herbivores away.
