  • The Buccaneer’s Dread, sailing the tiny seven seas
    I love when a small build looks like a full-sized build at first glance. And that’s exactly what Robert4168’s mini pirate ship does! The base of the ship is actually a single row boat normally meant to hold only one or two minifigures. But with a handful of tiny parts and some expertly folded (...)

  • Everything stays right where you left it
    Adventure Time, c’mon and grab your friends! We’re off to very distant lands. Lands where cute and quirky vampires like Marceline have complex relationships with Jake, Princess Bubblegum, and even the Ice King.

  • Asymmetrical starfighter is a little classic
    Aaron Dayman and Pascal have collaborated on this brilliant little asymmetrical space fighter: The model is Aaron’s and shows a great approach to variable geometry.

  • How many collectable minifigs does LEGO manufacture?
    Is there a shortage of Disney minifigs? They've only been in the shops a few days but already I am hearing reports that they are hard to find. My Local Smyths had a display unit for them but it was filled with Series 15 and older yesterday presumably because they'd sold out already, and (...)

  • This first class lounge is so luxurious, you won’t regret missing your flight
    Airport has been one of the coolest subthemes of LEGO Town sets since the 90s. But while planes have become bigger and better, airport buildings have become more crowded and basic.

  • Under a Tatooine sky
    Doesn’t this fantastic scene by Chris Maddison instantly make you hear the melancholy french horn solo from Binary Sunset (aka: The Force Theme by John Williams) in your head? With very few pieces and a limited color palette, Chris has perfectly captured the emotion of this iconic scene from (...)

  • A Jedi constructs his own LEGO lightsaber
    Kosmas Santosa continues the Star Wars day celebration with Darth Vader’s lightsaber hilt constructed from LEGO.

    Well, some of them look like this. Others look different. All kidding aside, these adorable Star Wars: The Force Awakens characters by Tyler Clites are insanely fantastic!
