A LEGO fanatic calling himself Nick Brick has taken Tracer’s pulse pistols right off the screen of Overwatch and made them into LEGO brick sculptures. The builds are very cool and look very much like the pistols Tracer uses in the game.
I didn’t like Game of Thrones at first, but the show has certainly grown on me and I like it now. It’s one of the few shows that I still like to watch the opening scenes of just to see the moving fortresses and such.
I can’t believe that no one has thought of this before. This new invention claims it will transform “virtually any surface into a base for LEGO components.” You can build around corners, on curved surfaces, or even onto the sides of other brick-built creations.
Kristal of JK Brickworks created this amazing kinetic LEGO model that is absolutely fascinating to watch. It is a custom designed kinetic sculpture of a fruit bat, which replicates the unique wing motion of the nocturnal flying mammal.
One of the most iconic scenes in the entire Star Wars saga has to be the moment in Return of the Jedi where Princess Leia chokes the life out of Jabba the Hutt. After turning her into his personal slave, dressing her in an uncomfortable metal bikini, and shackling her in chains, Leia had quite enough.
Everyone knows that pain of stepping on LEGO bricks. Few things in the world are as painful or induce more expletives shouted in anger. And when you think of all of the styles and shapes of LEGO pieces, some hurt worse than others.
Dungeons and Dragons fans are going to love this conceptual 3,000-piece Dungeon Master set created by LEGO Ideas user Ymarilego. These would be an awesome role-playing aid, and I’m not the only one who thinks so.
Look at that rainbow wave go. Taste the rainbow. I mean taste the LEGO. I mean, it’s just so wavy and pretty. Berthil van Beek makes many cool LEGO machines, but his latest machine is very very soothing and hypnotic.
There are LEGOmaniacs and then there are LEGOmaniacs. James Burrows is a LEGOmaniac of the first order. Check out Beyond the Brick’s video of him giving a tour of his massive dinosaur themed LEGO park, complete with functional CoasterSaurus II roller coaster.
Back to the Future II showed us so many cool and futuristic inventions, but one of the coolest were the sneakers that automatically laced themselves. The problem is that even though Nike is finally producing them for real, they cost over $700 a pair – if you can even find them.
We’ve seen plenty of Super Mario Bros. dioramas, but most of them just stand still. Not this one. Jason Cichon created an actual moving side-scroller based on the classic Nintendo game, using LEGO bricks as his medium.
This is a sight that you don’t see everyday. Bananenbuurman built a LEGO train set, then mounted a camera on the locomotive, and recorded its journey through the back yard and into a long underwater tunnel with plenty of fish.
A dude called Tim Schwalfenberg has created one of the coolest LEGO video game recreations ever. He took a scene from the cinematic zombie shooter The Last of Us and replicated it completely with LEGO bricks.
The Space Shuttle was awesome. Granted, there were some tragic accidents during the Shuttle program that cost the lives of astronauts, but overall the program was a raging success. OliveSeon created a LEGO tribute to the Space Shuttle, and it is awesome.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved LEGO bricks. While the basic blocks are great for all ages, sets like Technic and the mechanised Mindstorms kits have a tendency to be a bit complex for kids – especially when it comes to programming Mindstorms.
There aren’t many toys that are more recognizable and iconic than LEGO bricks and minifigs. While I’ve always wanted to make a giant minifig from LEGO bricks, I rather like this shortcut – a jumbo-sized minifig you can buy already made for your desktop or bookshelf.
