  • Review: 75201 First Order AT-ST
    The few remaining Imperial forces fled into the Unknown Regions following the Battle of Jakku, giving rise to the First Order. It therefore makes sense that a great deal of First Order technology has been adapted from designs belonging to the Empire, including 75201 First Order AT-ST. (...)

  • The light blossoms from darkness
    Some LEGO fans expect lots of fancy techniques and a wide range of parts used in a creation. While this White flower by Jarekwally has some of that, it focuses on other areas that are just as important, like composition and contrasts. The shadows give a very mysterious impression, somehow the (...)

  • The case of the loose double cheese
    Ronny Nussbaum has written this article about solving a tricky problem -- one we've probably all experienced at one time or another -- with technology: I just finished building the largest LEGO set in the world: 75192 Millennium Falcon. A month earlier, I built the amazing vertical stand (...)

  • Las Vegas Skyline set for end of month release
    The Architecture skyline set 21038 Las Vegas was originally scheduled for release at the beginning of January but recent events at one of the buildings featured in the set meant it was prudent for LEGO to delay its launch. It seems that the delay may not be a long as originally anticipated (...)

  • Truckin’ can be lonesome in a minifigure scale truck
    Building vehicles in minifigure scale is not always an easy task. Minifigures themselves are an odd shape – short and wide. In the LEGO world, adaptations have to be made, especially when it comes to vehicles that need minifigures to side side-by-side. This truck by Calin solves the problem by (...)

  • Inspektor Dogge brings order to the Fabuland galaxy (far, far away)
    Of all the awesome and hilarious mashups LEGO builders have brought us over the years, my favorite just might be the Fabuland/Star Wars mashup by Terovision, whose Fabuland Millennium Falcon we featured last year. In this latest scene, police bulldog flies a blue and yellow TIE fighter (...)

  • In the laboratory with Madame Curie
    As every schoolchild knows, Maria Sk?odowska-Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, and the only person to win one in two different fields (Physics in 1903 and Chemistry in 1911). Sadly, this Polish-French luminary of science died young due to her work understanding the nature of (...)

  • What can’t a Technic tractor do? [Video]
    In its own rights, the 42054 CLAAS XERION 5000 TRAC VC tractor amazes with its sturdy yet functional design.

  • Oriental abode built to embrace luck, joy, and beauty
    There’s always a splash of grandeur in detail with buildings from ages long ago.

Red, in Chinese culture, is a symbol of good (...)

  • Review: 40187 Flower Display
    LEGO has commonly been known to create 'miscellaneous' sets for their online shop and Brand Stores that don't really fit with any specific category; they'd function for just a quick gift or even for holiday decoration. 40187 Flower Display is one such item, as it could function (...)

There are so many touches that make these models instantly recognizable, but I can’t help admiring (...)

  • A very nice microscale church
    With microscale building, a simple part choice can make all the difference.
