  • Review: 75183 Darth Vader Transformation
    It could be suggested that the entire Star Wars saga is focused around the scene during which Darth Vader is encased in his famous armoured suit. 75183 Darth Vader Transformation is only the second set based on this vital moment and twelve years have passed since the first was released so I (...)

  • Relax at the end of a long day with a visit to Modular Café
    Builder Brandon wyc has put together a wonderful LEGO café — a tranquil oasis in the middle of a bustling city scene. The lighting adds to the atmosphere, but what’s most impressive are the details depicting everyday life both inside and outside. The café itself features a kitchen with a bakery, (...)

  • A smart little place in town
    Every gentleman needs a smart little place in town, and Emil Lidé‘s microscale LEGO townhouse definitely fits the bill. With the elaborate stonework of the frontage, the elegant bushes flanking the entrance, the crest above the door, and the nicely-executed Mansard roof, this lovely little (...)

  • LEGO Pickett will grow on you
    Newt Scamander’s little pet plant might not appear the easiest of creatures to sculpt from LEGO pieces. However, Jonas Kramm has taken up the leafy challenge and come out a winner — his selection of rubbery and leafy green pieces come together wonderfully. The organic and twisted vine look is (...)

  • An Ottoman dream in green and gold
    The Brothers Brick’s own Patrick Massey has created this beautiful mosque after a short hiatus from LEGO master building. He shared some insider tricks he implemented to save time and bricks, and the most interesting is that he created the model purely for photographing. In other words, there is (...)

  • Review: 75531 Stormtrooper Commander
    The Buildable Figures range began in 2015 and many fans seem to have been clamouring for a Stormtrooper from the Original Trilogy since then. 75531 Stormtrooper Commander should therefore prove quite popular and I have been eager to take a closer look at this iconic soldier. However, the price (...)

  • The wheels of time turn beneath the Crystal of Harmony
    It doesn’t take a hardcore Whovian to appreciate this awesome LEGO TARDIS interior by AdNorrel. The builder says he was inspired after watching the episode Journey to the Center of the TARDIS. This build isn’t based on any specific room inside the TARDIS — it’s the builder’s own design — and it (...)

  • Birds in their little nests agree
    Builder Josephine Monterosso once again demonstrates her flair for out-of-the-box building techniques with this beautiful bird’s nest. We’re used to seeing builds with no exposed studs, but this one seems to take the biscuit, lacking any normal connections whatsoever! Josephine jokes that “there (...)

  • Review: 70913 Scarecrow Fearful Face-off
    70913 Scarecrow Fearful Face-off is the smallest set in the brand new second wave of Batman Movie sets due for release this summer, priced appropriately at only £11.99 or $14.99. As is custom once popular films trek through their theatrical run and make the jump to DVD and digital, I expect (...)

  • And the monkey flips the switch
    Normally, my obsessive nature would freak out about incorrectly attached LEGO bricks. Yet somehow, despite the way LEGO 7 has created the jaws of these sublime simian spacemen, my clutching disorder doesn’t seem to mind. These cheeky chimpanzee’s heads have been created using only a handful of (...)

  • Saynète
  • There is no force in the world that can rival the Roman war machine
    The Roman war machine was an impressive force in its time and to this day inspires many people, for better or for worse. This time it is for the better, as the Russian LEGO building duo Dmitriy and Anna have created an extremely expressive legionnaire using a relatively limited selection of (...)

  • Tanks beware, the War Mustang is locked on
    Enemy armor slowing you down? Then get ready to pop some tanks with the War Mustang Multi-Purpose Anti-Tank Missle System (try saying that several times real fast) built by Stud Systems. The War Mustang is a lovely and cleverly designed combat vehicle. The coolest detail has to be the poseable (...)

  • Spherical spaceship has all the right curves
    There’s no stopping Tyler Clites when it comes to building remarkable and just plain mind-boggling spacecraft. In a similar vein to the awe-inspiring alien vessel we featured a while back, Tyler presents us with another beautifully spherical craft in the form of this futuristic Russian (...)

  • Review: 75182 Republic Fighter Tank
    As further Star Wars films are released in the coming years it appears inevitable that the volume of products based on each one will be diluted. The prospect of seeing material from beyond the movies seems even more unlikely but 75182 Republic Fighter Tank is just such a set, having never (...)

  • LEGO Fidget Spinners
    Allen over at TheBrickFan states that "The current fad, at least here in the US, is fidget toys and fidget spinners." I can tell you Allen that it's not just in the USA: every toy, gift, card and pound shop here in the UK are selling the spinners so it seems the craze is sweeping through (...)

  • Einstein’s mass squared off in bricks
    BrickHeadz are a bit like Marmite, dividing opinion into “love them” or “hate them” camps. It seems that even this famous theoretical physicist is not immune to becoming a squared mass of bricks. Krzysztof J has chosen to depict Einstein with his infamous tongue sticking-out pose next to a (...)

  • Bring back life form. Priority One. All other priorities rescinded.
    H.R. Giger’s Xenomorph design is a perennial favorite among LEGO builders, and I’m looking forward to another batch of great LEGO aliens with the release of Alien: Covenant today. With a bar set very high by the likes of the Arvo Brothers, but this bust of the original alien from the 1979 Ridley (...)

  • We don’t make mistakes, we just have happy accidents
    If you watched PBS’s Joy of Painting back in the 80s and early 90s, you’ll probably recognize BrickinNick‘s most recent creation. If not, I’ll give you a few hints. This icon was known for his soft voice, his permed afro (which BrickinNick captured perfectly in LEGO brick), and his positive outlook (...)

  • Interesting new arrivals in certified stores
    A couple of interesting sets have turned up in certified stores this week. Bart found this cute 40251 Mini Piggy Bank in Warsaw while Burak found 40173 Picture Frame in Dubai. It looks as if the piggy bank can be converted into a mouse-bank and a panda-bank or something, and if I had to guess (...)

  • A bloom opens, as the storm begins
    One of the most prestigious contests in the LEGO community, the Iron Builder challenge, is once again underway. Grant Davis kicks off this round with a serene scene featuring a cute little bee and a lotus flower. The leaves are near perfect, but the flower looks more like Leontopodium alpinum (...)

  • Review: 60154 Bus Station
    It's been four years since the last City bus turned up so the arrival of one in 60154 Bus Station is long overdue. It's priced at £39.99, the same as 60153 Fun at the Beach, but it trades expensive minifigs for more parts, and supplies us with our second minifigure wheelchair. Continue (...)

  • Largest ever LEGO Minecraft set announced: 21137 The Mountain Cave [News]
    The LEGO Minecraft world just got a whole lot bigger. Today LEGO has announced the largest set yet for the minifigure-scale theme, 21137 The Mountain Cave. Coming in at a staggering 2,863 pieces and a retail price of $249.99 when it arrives July 1, young Minecraft fans had better hope Grandma (...)

  • Brickheadz face-hugger is chest-burstingly cute
    Alien: Covenant hits theaters in the U.S. this week, which is the only thing me and my wife have talked about for weeks (we’d be a tad more excited if Ridley Scott had nothing to do with it, but that’s a whole other discussion). It’s been a long, long time since we’ve had a decent Continue reading (...)

  • Those were the salad days
    Seasoned fans of Japanese television might recognize this tricycling toddler as Kinoko Sarada (lit. “Mushroom Salad”) from the 80’s show Doctor Slump. The show – which I’ve never seen but sounds completely insane – was the brainchild of Akira Toriyama, who later went on to create the more widely (...)

  • Well obviously you’d like fries with that
    Check out this brilliant LEGO roadside diner by Kale Frost. This burger n’ fries joint appears to be doing a roaring trade, and rightly so. Not many snack bars have such a vivid evocation of the delights on sale — the giant burger looks juicy and tempting, and the fry box counter is brilliantly (...)

  • Review: 75166 First Order Transport Speeder Battle Pack
    The release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens inspired inevitable demand for First Order Stormtrooper minifigures and it would be reasonable to suggest that 2016's 75132 First Order Battle Pack was quite disappointing in this regard. That set included only a single standard Stormtrooper, (...)
