May the 4th was a hot day in New York. It felt like Tatooine. Luckily, fans who didn’t want to walk around in the heat had the option to take a leisurely ride around Bryant Park in a LEGO version the Millennium Falcon.
Who feels like making breakfast when you’re still half asleep? Not me. That’s why I have to build a breakfast-making robot like this one. This breakfast-making machine is amazing. It will make you bacon and eggs using two custom-built LEGO robots.
This animated LEGO scene depicts Darth Vader’s TIE fighter chasing Luke’s X-wing during the Death Star trench run in A New Hope. It is both calming and mesmerizing. Jason Allemann built this kinetic sculpture and it is a super cool desk toy that I need in my life.
Pipe- and wire-bending machines make it easy to create metal shapes that twist in various ways. Yoshihito Isogawa’s pipe cleaner bending robot works in the same basic way. It just bends those little fuzzy wires instead of tough metal.
LEGO and aquarium are two words that don’t usually go together. As versatile as the bricks are, I’m guessing the gaps aren’t water-tight. That’s why you don’t see giant LEGO ships traveling the world’s oceans, delivering LEGO sets where they are needed.
Nintendo’s upcoming Labo accessories for the Switch should be a hit with fans since they’ll introduces some unique gameplay mechanisms. The problem is that at $70 to $80 per kit, they’re pricey. That’s a lot to pay for cardboard.
If only more toymakers would take a page from LEGO’s book and let fans design potential new items. The LEGO Ideas site is responsible for some of the coolest sets in the past few years, and the new TRON: Legacy light cycles set is just one such example.
David Aguilar was born with an underdeveloped right arm. But he didn’t let that stand in his way, and he built himself an awesome prosthetic replacement using LEGO Technic parts. He has put a ton of time into it.
If I had a Bitcoin for every quarter I dropped into an arcade machine back in the 1980s, I would have been on the top of Forbes’ list of wealthiest people. Alas, my coins are long gone, pumped into the bellies of Dig Dug, BattleZone, and Tempest machines.
Do you have a big collection of LEGO minifigs? You could leave them hanging out on a shelf where they can easily be knocked over, or you could display them on one of these shelves designed specifically to keep their feet from sliding around.
Roller coasters and I don’t really get along. Let’s just say shaking me up and flipping me over until I’m ready to puke is not my idea of a great time. But maybe riding on this huge 90,000-piece LEGO replica would be a great way to experience some thrills without all of the nausea.
Do you love LEGO as much as I do? Here’s a fun way to add a little extra LEGO to your life, and without using a single brick. These fun papercraft models let you add some giant minifigs (is that an oxymoron?)
Much to the delight of fans, LEGO has been selling some nice big sets for a while now, so that nerds with disposable income can build some epic models. That said, I hold out the tiniest bit of hope that LEGO will turn Vladimir van Hoek’s full-size working Lord of the Rings pinball machine into a massive set we can buy.
There are so many thing you can do with LEGO; the possibilities are nearly infinite. One of my favorite LEGO builds ever was a keyboard that Jason Allemann built which had LEGO keycaps. Now Jason is back with an updated version of his awesome LEGO keyboard, and it’s better than ever.
