  • Punch when you have to punch, kick when you have to kick
    Fan builders have certainly come up with some creative uses for LEGO’s balloon segment pieces. In his latest creation, Romanian builder Letranger Absurde has used the ones in set 70603 Ninjago Raid Zeppelin to create a very believable speed punch bag. Although by all accounts, getting this thing (...)

    It’s still more than 80 days before the next Formula One racing season starts, and the all-new racing cars are still scheduled to be revealed in February. In the meantime, let’s have a look at a vehicle that stays behind the scenes, but still helps drivers make their way to the finish flag. Ryan (...)

  • Even rodents look cute when they are LEGO rodents
    Did you know that there are 25 species of hamster? Actually, there are 26 now that Felix Jaensch has built the LEGO hamster. This is an ideal pet for anyone who is short on time and space to dedicate to their animal buddy. This little creature appears to be waiting for something, perhaps a few (...)

  • Angle-intensive starfighter, just waiting to be swooshed
    There are wings and portrusions of unknown function sticking out of this starfighter by Perig Perig and I am totally cool with that. Unique shaping like this is becoming more and more the standard of spaceships lately, which is comparable to extremely detailed stonework in castle creations. (...)

  • Rebel commandos board a UT-60D U-wing gunship for Scarif
    As I mentioned in my review of the LEGO Star Wars 75155 Rebel U-wing Fighter set released ahead of Rogue One, I wasn’t a big fan of the new vehicle until I saw it in action in the movie. But seeing it dropping Rebel commandos onto the beaches of Scarif and provide close air support Continue (...)

  • Review: 75169 Duel on Naboo
    The duel inside the Theed power generator, more commonly known as the Duel of the Fates, is perhaps the most memorable aspect of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. As a result, it is surprising that this famous scene has not formed the basis for an official set at any point during the (...)

  • Halloween set revealed in Easter instructions
    LegoLeroy on Eurobricks has found this year's Easter seasonal set, 40237 in his local brand store. As is usual for seasonal sets, an image of the next one can be found at the back of the instructions, in this case for Halloween, which I'm assuming will be numbered 40238. It's (...)

  • Kenworth wrecker in 1:13 scale spares no detail
    ‘Lifelike’ isn’t a good enough adjective to properly describe this Kenworth K100 wrecker by Dennis Bosman. Built to 1:13 scale, this thing is not just big but beautifully detailed. At such scale, the little details really come to life. We can see how much painstaking effort was put into creating (...)

  • It’s freezing out there, let’s stay inside
    What better place to snuggle up inside, safely out of the wind and snow, than noggy85‘s cosy LEGO cottage? This is a lovely piece of microscale building, with “baby bow” curves and 1×1 slopes used effectively to create snow-laden trees. And don’t miss the use of a white croissant as smoke coming (...)

  • A Polish saucer with some LEGO sorcery
    This fantastic architectural build by Miroslaw is a 1:125 scaled version of Spodek, a huge multipurpose arena in Katowice, Poland. Spodek means “saucer” in Polish and refers to the flying saucer appearance of this huge structure which seems to defy some of the laws of LEGO gravity. Achieving a (...)

  • Functional LEGO Nerf gun [Video]
    YouTube channel AstonishingStudios has created a nifty little build: a LEGO Nerf gun that works much like the original. Modelled after the Maverick REV-6, the creation not only manages to be almost the same shape and size, but even possesses the ability to fire Nerf darts thanks to a non-LEGO (...)

  • You’re all clear kid, now let’s blow this thing and go home
    There have been many LEGO versions of the famous Star Wars trench run, and this one in minifig scale by Martin Harris 1 appears to have all the ingredients just right. This massive and highly detailed diorama with X-Wing, TIE Fighters and Darth Vadar’s TIE Advanced X1 is a feast of grays and (...)

  • Review - 31062 Robo Explorer
    On New Year’s Day, I hadn’t planned on buying any Creator sets. Then, when I was in the store looking at other areas, I spotted 31062 Robo Explorer. The three builds looked great and it appeared they used a lot of the azure blue. The price was right ($19.99). Then – irresistibly – I saw that it (...)

  • Horses in space!
    French builder F@bz is well known for building fabulous sci-fi vehicles of every sort. His latest futuristic LEGO creation has some sharp, clean lines and a lovely pop of lavender. But what really caught my eye was the use of those Paradisa roof slopes on the rear of F@bz’s spacey drone. In (...)

  • Special offer from UCS Replicas
    If you've ever wanted to own 10179 Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon but can't afford or justify the outrageous price that it sells for these days you may be interested in a service provided by UCS Replicas. For a fraction of the cost of buying a new or used one, the company (...)

  • Grasshopper touches down to support the troops
    Close behind his recent space fighter, ZCerberus proves he’s on a Neo-Classic Space (NCS) roll with a similarly-themed support craft. It’s neat to see such a specialized spacecraft in minifigure-scale, and furthermore in those classic space colors. The builder incorporated enough functions and (...)

  • McDonald's Happy Meal promotions
    Yesterday we reported that the items offered in the next LEGO-related Happy Meal promotion are nothing to get excited about, but that hasn't always been the case. Since McDonalds first started offering toys with kids meals in 1979 LEGO-related items have been included around a dozen times. (...)

    Sairel has long since been a regular feature on this site with impressive Technic and Power Functions builds such as a motorised Kaneda’s bike from Akira and a remote controlled Batpod. Now the builder’s newest creation — an RC car modeled after the Pagani Huayra — is sure to make petrol heads like (...)

  • Animated LEGO Mario Bros scene features truly old-school side-scrolling action [Video]
    How do you recreate a video game using LEGO? You could build the game’s characters, or even a 3D version of a level. But that doesn’t capture the movement videogames have. Or you could do what Jason Cichon has done, and take the term “side-scrolling platformer” quite literally by turning the (...)

  • TLBM McDonalds promotion will be another disappointment
    The McDonald's Happy Meal site has been updated with this image of The LEGO Batman Movie 'toys' that'll be available next month. Unfortunately, it's another missed opportunity with nothing but tat on offer: 3D viewers, puzzles and cups. Not a real brick in sight. Via The (...)

  • Skyrim’s Bits and Pieces store made of bits and pieces
    Even though this medieval store by Isaac Snyder uses textures and techniques we see very often in medieval builds lately, it still manages to look unique; first by its complex layout and secondly by its use of dark gray as the stone bricks, which is for some reason rather uncommon. While the (...)

  • Ares-3 off the drawing board
    The friendliest looking starfighter you’ve ever seen has made the leap from LEGO Digital Designer to the real world. BobDeQuatre designed this ship three years ago in LDD and has made excellent use of several new bricks to take the design from “cool” to “really something else” during its (...)
