  • The great outdoors awaits
    … and what better way to get there than in Lino Martins‘ latest creation? This fabulous 1974 Ford Bronco features the trademark touches which make Lino one of my favourite builders — smooth curves and good color choices all wrapped up in the large scale he seems to have made his signature. (...)

  • Donald Duck mech is ready to take the fight to Mickey
    Looks like Donald has finally had enough of that mouse hogging the limelight. Dvd‘s latest creation shows just how everyone’s favourite anthropomorphic duck plans to even the score. This is the sort of model we love here at TBB — it’s not just good fun, it’s a really well-built mech too. Too often (...)

  • LEGO announces end of Bionicle theme, 2016 to be final year [News]
    LEGO’s Bionicle theme has been among the longest running proprietary themes LEGO’s ever developed. Bionicle started in 2001, where it was one of the most original toys to hit the market during my childhood. I still remember buying the first wave of Toa, with their elemental powers, and avidly (...)

  • LEGO scenes from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
    First, we were blown away with tiny scenes from The Sorcerer’s Stone, then with vignettes from The Chamber of Secrets. And now (you guessed it) we have a series of wonderful LEGO scenes from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This time around, the master builder behind the month-long (...)

  • There's still time to enter the charity raffle
    Last week we told you about James Camplin's (legoboy) efforts to raise money for the hospice that cared for his mother. Since that post, the number of items in the prize pool has increased to 55 and the money raised to over £1500, which is a fantastic achievement. If you haven't (...)

  • LEGO Worms with arms
    Worms was an artillery strategy video game released in 1995, back when worms were fashionable. The sometimes-controversial builder Suck My Brick has nicely captured these well-armed and battle-ready guys in LEGO form. There is definitely a humorous side to arming worms with grenades, (...)

  • All who gain power are afraid to lose it. Even the Jedi.
    Say what you will about Episodes I through III, but I can appreciate a climactic turning point in a character’s story arc. I can appreciate it, even more, when such a scene is translated into LEGO! Cecilie Fritzvold beautifully captured the final scene of the opening sequence from Revenge of the (...)

  • Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake in LEGO
    Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is iconic. It’s a familiar love story of the White Swan, Odette, and Prince Sigfried. One thing I always thought was amazing was Odile’s fouettés: this is where the dancer spins 360 degrees, on pointe. Odile does them to “steal” the prince, and the original ballerina could do (...)

  • Teal me a story
    Spoiler alert: most UFO pictures are faked, including this one. Teal is a very rare color, and most of these bricks were never made in it. Which makes this virtual model all the more striking. Digital artist dunkleosteus_ldd used Lego Digital Designer and Bluerender to design this uniquely (...)

  • This LEGO drone cannot wear skinny jeans
    This LEGO drone by Guy Smiley has the build of a machine aimed at impact and intimidation rather than agility and speed. It bears a resemblance to the drones in the awesome short film Keloid, a source of inspiration for LEGO drones since 2013. Those thunderous thighs would make a grown man (...)

  • Review: Technic Volvo EW160E
    This is always an exciting time of year for Technic fans, when the large 'advanced' models are released. I can clearly recall building 8480 Space Shuttle on my lounge floor in the heat of July 1996 having just purchased it in Argos, and I've enjoyed summer Technic building sessions (...)

  • Passing on to LEGO Nirvana
    There’s a saying in Japan that you’re born Shinto, get married as a Christian, and die a Buddhist. In other words, you practice Shinto rites from birth, have a Western-style wedding, and leave this world through Buddhist funeral ceremonies. Thus, one of the many unique aspects of Japanese culture (...)

  • This real-life LEGO Minifigure Costume will fuel your nightmares for years [Video]
    Adam Savage and the crew of Tested have been dabbling in the world of LEGO lately, including visiting BrickCon and building Jason Allemann’s Sysiphus Kinetic Sculpture. Their latest LEGO hijinks, though, are sure to leave you appalled — they’ve designed a “real-life” interpretation of a LEGO (...)

  • Super Mario looks super with bricks
    In 2015, the thirtieth anniversary of Mario, Nintendo released an awesome amiibo of every player one’s favorite koopa slaying plumber as a 3D version of the original character sprite. Perhaps used as a guide, John Kupitz constructed the 3D projection with LEGO bricks to equally impressive (...)

  • à quoi sert le petit interrupteur orange sur les boitiers à pile PFS ?
    Bonjour, Toute la question est dans le titre : à quoi servent les petits interrupteurs orange sur les boitiers à pile PFS ? Le petit bouton vert c'est pour on/off, et l'interrupteur orange j'aurais pensé un inverseur de sens (vu les flèches dans un sens et un autre) mais sur les deux couples de (...)

    LEGO has launched a new microsite today: Remake. Essentially, its purpose is to provide instructions for building alternative models from official sets that have been designed by fan builders, of which there are six involved at the moment, including Jason Allemann, creator of the Ideas Maze. (...)

  • Building hot rods at the local parts shop
    This street scene in what looks like sunny California by sanellukovic certainly doesn’t lack for local color. My eye was immediately drawn to the excellent brick-built lettering that spells “PARTS” on the garage, as well as the realistic palm trees with leaves in varying colors, but it’s the (...)

  • If it bleeds, we can kill it
    I watched Predator with the lights off late one night by myself when I was 14, terrified just as much that my parents would find me watching a hyper-violent R-rated movie as I was of the invisible alien antagonist. Cid Hsiao has built a Predator figure that uses the organic armor of Bionicle (...)

  • The Foxbat Fighter rebuilt for combat
    As new pieces and building techniques emerge and as builders improve their style, it’s interesting to see a builder revisit a previously built design. Benjamin Cheh Ming Hann shows a side-by-side comparison of his custom fighter design, the FB12 Foxbat, with his original 2013 build on the left (...)

  • Keeping things running at optimal level
    This rad little droid built by Marco Marozzi has all kinds of neat details packed inside its frame. I especially like face, with the thin tire squeezed in between two translucent orange armor plate pieces to break up the orange a bit. Though the droid is what grabbed my attention here, don’t (...)

  • Minifigures Series 16 officially revealed
    The entire sixteenth wave of Collectable Minifigures has finally been revealed by LEGO on Facebook... even though they have already begun to appear in shops and we saw them leaked a few months back! Better late than never, I guess. We have added all of the individual minifig photos to the (...)

  • Slimes: they make a popping sound when they burst
    Slimes. What are they good for? Nothing. They’re purple and oozy and maybe a little bit cute, but they get into everything and multiply like there’s no tomorrow. Sometimes, you just have to take a the drastic option, and that means grabbing the biggest hammer you can find. SPLAT! Well, that’s one (...)

  • Cold winter at the Nordheim Greathouse
    Isaac S. is working on a Skyrim collaboration, and based on the other bits he’s posted, it looks like it’s going to be wonderful. The Nordheim Greathouse brings it all with lovely textures to the wood and stone, along with a very very chilly atmosphere with bits of ice and lots of snow. I love (...)
