  • Run, run, as fast as you can...
    As a child, I was always a little on edge about the idea of a gingerbread man coming to life. Now I’m just plain terrified. This maniacal-looking LEGO cookie by Kelvin Low is truly a thing of nightmares. Don’t let the gumdrop buttons or frosting swirls fool you, if this guy comes out of your (...)

  • Review: 21307 Caterham Seven 620R
    As reported here the latest LEGO Ideas offering, 21307 Caterham 7 620R, was unveiled to the LEGO and non-LEGO press a couple of weeks ago. I attended the launch event and was therefore able to finally cast my eyes over the set for the first time. My initial impressions were positive, but final (...)

  • Go behind the scenes of The Master: A LEGO Ninjago Short
    Storks was just released into theaters this past Friday by Warner Bros. Studios. While the movie itself looks great and I cannot wait to see it soon, the main draw for LEGO fans here is the short attached before it: The Master: A LEGO Ninjago Short. Jackie Chan stars as Wu himself in this sneak (...)

  • ECM Cruiser Parakeet is ready to go
    I admit to being a sucker for a ship with lovely curves, and the Parakeet (by Pico van Grootveld) certainly delivers. Like most of the LEGO ships coming out around this time, this green and white beauty is over 100 studs long. The silhouette is interesting, with fins and a nice form, but that (...)

  • Get your Caterham 7 signed at the Great Western Brick Show this weekend
    The UK's largest and longest running LEGO show this year takes place this weekend in Swindon, UK, which coincides with the release of the LEGO Ideas 21307 Caterham Seven 620R. The set will be available to buy from the official LEGO store at the event and the project's creator, Carl (...)

  • 1971 Holden Ute uses brute force to get what it wants
    Lino Martins never fails to deliver when it comes to LEGO vehicles, and his 1971 Holden Ute is no exception. This orange-striped wonder looks ready to tackle whatever obstacles you put in its path. Lino has added a roll cage, wheelie bars, and other fun little surprises. The steering on the (...)

  • Review: 75155 Rebel U-wing Fighter
    75155 Rebel U-wing Fighter is perhaps the most anticipated of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sets and is also one of the largest, with a price of £69.99 or $79.99 and containing 659 pieces. The trailers released so far appear to suggest that the U-wing, more formally known as the UT-60D, will (...)

  • Autumn comes to Mortage Keep
    This LEGO castle by Patrick Massey is both lovely and somewhat terrifying. The spiky crenellations and hard textures of the castle make it look like the home of an evil wizard or an otherwise sourly-dispositioned inhabitant. However, at the same time, the lush autumn foliage and the soft round (...)

  • BrickCon 2016 is this weekend [News]
    BrickCon 2016 in Seattle 3 days away! The convention begins Thursday, Sept 30 and runs until Sunday, Oct 2. The public is invited to come see everything on Saturday from 10am – 4pm and Sunday from 9am – 3pm. Thinking about visiting during Public Hours, but haven’t gotten tickets yet? You’re in (...)

  • LEGO Dimensions Wave 6 expansion packs now available
    Those looking to continue their LEGO Dimensions experience - or even start one - are in luck. Today is September 27th, which not only marks one year since the game and its initial expansion pack collection hits shelves, but also is the beginning of 'year two' content. Check out what (...)

  • Star Wars Go Rogue
    The Star Wars YouTube channel has been celebrating the imminent launch of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story product line over the last couple of weeks. Fans have created a four-part stop motion animation featuring toys from various manufacturers and LEGO is heavily featured, due in no small (...)

  • The fastest traffic cop in the city
    Disney’s Zootopia was one of this year’s breakout successes, and officer Judy Hops, Zootopia’s first rabbit in uniform, carried audiences with her fast-paced charm. Here’s a fine LEGO version of Hops with her carrot-pen, built by Sheo. She’s even poseable, and pretty much the same scale as the (...)

  • A LEGO temple worthy of a god
    Zeus, the Greek god of thunder and lightning, is keeping an eye over this temple built in his honor by Oliver Becker. Or is he getting ready to smite it? I’m not really sure. Either way, this tiny LEGO temple nestled in billowing clouds is lovely. Those technic pins make perfect Greek columns (...)

  • Holy chiseled abs, Batman!
    Few do strong LEGO character creations as well as nobu_tary. Just check out Metabee, Rei Ayanami and RX-77-2 Guncannon, all made by the same builder. But today’s build is none other than the caped crusader, which has been captured brilliantly despite a lack of facial features. While the chunky (...)

  • LEGO Viking stave church
    This lovely Viking stave church by John Tooker has some great textures and details. Just look at that cobblestone wall, the wood planks that make up the walls of the church, and of course the round 2×2 tiles that make up the roof. Except for the grassy areas (which look a little bit like the (...)

    The Globe Theater is iconic, with a long rich history. Artisan Bricks has recreated the theater in microscale, complete with removable roof for easy stage access. This tiny theater features the iconic round shape, with the open arena for the audience. There are balconies all around, with the (...)

  • The Battlestar Chelone
    Since the 2004-2009 Battlestar Galactica television series is easily one of my favorite shows of all time, I immediately fell in love with Bart Larrow‘s recent build, the Battlestar Chelone. Even if you haven’t seen the TV show yourself, there’s a lot to love about this LEGO ship. Just check out (...)

  • Imperial Dancetroopers take pointe
    Sometimes all a Stormtrooper wants to do is to dance! Laurene Johnsone brings us a little-seen side of the life on an Imperial soldier — the ballet classes. I like the four clone troopers practising their pointe, but all eyes in the studio are surely on the central pair practising their Swan (...)

  • Sleek space carrier is ready for battle
    Apparently this is SweStar‘s first attempt at a SHIP (a LEGO spaceship exceeding 100 studs in length). It’s a hell of a debut — nice shaping, sharp color blocking, and some smart greebly details. I particularly like the color choices for the striping — the muted sand blue and sand green make for an (...)

  • Firefly – the defense choice of the next generation
    Horcik Designs looks set to be the premier air defense contractor of the 21st century. The Firefly is their latest UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle) and it’s available for purchase now from all good arms dealers. I love this model’s chunky near-future realism. The white color scheme lends it (...)

  • What's Missing? The Force Awakens
    Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the most recent addition to the Star Wars saga and has already yielded twenty-two LEGO sets in just over a year. I have been thoroughly impressed by most of the range and the breadth of coverage has been extraordinary given the relatively short time since the (...)

  • Imperial boarders attack the Tantive IV
    CozzD has built the iconic corridor sequence from the opening of Star Wars: A New Hope. Whilst LEGO Star Wars creations often feature the exterior of the iconic spaceships, it makes a pleasant change to see other scenes depicted in the brick. The corridor of the Tantive IV blockade runner is (...)

  • Flee this encounter? Yes please
    Karf Oolhu proves once again he’s the master of combining random parts to create models that manage to be somehow both funny and sinister. This peculiar skeletal figure lurches from the darkness, tentacles and wings poking out of its robe, an obsidian dagger strapped at its waist. Karf says we (...)

  • I have you now!
    The Brothers Brick have covered Star Wars builds of all shapes and sizes, but rarely one that would fit in the palm of your hand. This microscale LEGO trench scene from Star Wars: A New Hope by Grantmasters is simultaneously adorable and clever, especially the 6-brick X-wing fighter featuring a (...)

  • Mechanical automaton is ready to roll
    Vince Toulouse brings us this excellent automaton — ready to roll out on its single wheel and come to the rescue of any malfunctioning contraption. The retro-futurism of the design here is just awesome — slick and smooth, yet unmistakably “old-timey” in its sci-fi. The color scheme is spot-on and (...)

  • LEGO Disney 71040 Cinderella Castle [Review]
    As something of a Disney geek, I was delighted to get the opportunity to review the new LEGO Disney Cinderella Castle set. However, I have to admit I was somewhat taken aback when the box arrived and I began to realise what an undertaking the build process was going to be… The enormous box (...)

  • Red and black is the new black
    Marco De Bon says this latest LEGO creation was inspired by the videogame series Super Robot Wars. Regardless of where the inspiration arose I hope there’s more of this sort of thing to come. The robot’s color scheme is bold — red, black, yellow, and gold, and that splash of blue at the hips. It (...)

  • Review: 75121 Imperial Death Trooper
    Death Troopers dominate the packaging of the entire Rogue One: A Star Wars Story product line, suggesting that Disney and Lucasfilm have high expectations for the merchandising popularity of these elite soldiers. It therefore seems likely that 75121 Imperial Death Trooper will be a particularly (...)

  • Sci-fi dino racing should totally be a thing
    LEGO Friends don’t just hang out at the cupcake store, they also race sci-fi motorcycles — or at least they do in the future (past?) imagined by gray mini. The bike itself is cool, but it’s the overall race scene which sets my heart pumping. I dread to think what happens if the other racers (...)

  • A house for Mickey and Minnie-figs
    David FNJ has built a lovely little vignette for Mickey and Minnie featuring a building which wouldn’t look out of place down on Main Street USA. The touches of pearl gold detailing and the blue and white bunting add a festive feel, and that “hidden Mickey” made with the black boat studs is a nice (...)

  • Micro LEGO National Park: Meridian Hill, Washington DC
    National parks come in all shapes and sizes, though I don’t think extra tiny is on the list! jsnyder002 has given us this beautiful micro rendition of Meridian Hill National Park, located in Washington, DC. The real park certainly sits on the smaller side of things, and was formerly a garden for (...)

  • Brick-moji: Because LEGO bricks have feelings too!
    I created the first Brick-moji as a gift for someone very dear to me. But then I realized the pattern was repeatable, and the project kind of took on a life of it’s own! If you’re at BrickCon in Seattle next week, you’ll find these lurking in the Bricks of Character section, where I’ll be Continue (...)
