  • Announcing the Brickset YouTube channel!
    I am pleased to announce the next step in Brickset's takeover of social media: a YouTube channel! That's right, we're hitting the video-making scene! I'm in charge and will create tons of LEGO and site-related content 'built' for your viewing pleasure. The channel can (...)

  • Spectacularly ferocious LEGO T-Rex Transformer will send you back to the Jurassic
    I never did get around to seeing the insane spectacle that was Transformers: Age of Extinction, but I have to admit the character designs were awesome. Nicola Stocchi has brought the most iconic of those characters to the brick with this terrifyingly incredible version of the T-Rex Grimlock. (...)

  • Merlin acquires land in upstate NY for third US LEGOLAND park

  • LEGO Star Wars 75150 Vader’s TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfighter [Review]
    Now that the buzz from The Force Awakens has assuaged, and the hype for Rogue One hasn’t yet reached a fever pitch, the LEGO Star Wars line can turn its Goliath head toward older or smaller pieces of the franchise. Thus it is that this summer’s Star Wars wave contains elements from myriad (...)

  • Creator magazine available in South Korea
    We're big fans of LEGO magazines here at Brickset, so we were particularly interested to learn about one that we didn't know about last week. It's simply called Creator and is published in South Korea, in Korean. That's a bit of an obstacle for many of us at the moment but the (...)

  • NHBC Foundation uses LEGO to encourage careers in the building industry
    Research conducted by the UK's National House Building Council (NHBC) Foundation has revealed that kids are not being encouraged to pursue a career in the house building industry. To showcase the career possibilities in the industry and to change the misconceptions surrounding house (...)

  • One man’s toys are another man’s treasure
    French builder sweetsha puts on display this cute and funny scene where he uses regular bricks as just… bricks. But inside such a huge and awesome wooden chest they look absolutely precious. The use of the pearl gold wheel is quite clever, and looks perfect. We can only imagine how long did it (...)

  • Rebel A-wing Pilot polybag revealed
    Another Star Wars polybag has been revealed on Hoth Bricks. This A-wing Pilot from Star Wars Rebels is based on the character of Phoenix Two who appeared towards the end of the second season. It is perhaps surprising that Lieutenant Dicer was not chosen given that she was slightly more (...)

  • Build your cake and eat it too
    Sometimes LEGO looks good enough to eat, and this is certainly the case with Sad Brick‘s Cranberry Black Forest cake. This plastic take on the classic German desert appears to have the key ingredients of chocolate sponge, cream, kirsch, more cream and a black cherry on top. A puzzle for you: do (...)

  • The age of the Samurai: a stunningly huge mountain hideaway with working illumination
    When your 5 year old son asks you to build a Ninjago city, you only say yes. But Ben Pitchford took things a little bit more seriously and ended up with a massive diorama nearly 4 feet (or 121 cms) high! The building process took almost 9 months, which is way over the attention span of a (...)

  • Review: 21128 The Village
    Firstly, I would like to thank Huw for giving me another opportunity to review a new LEGO Minecraft set for you all. I hope you enjoy it as much I have enjoyed writing it. Or more! 21128 The Village is the first D2C set for the LEGO Minecraft theme, which is now in its third wave, or fourth, (...)

  • Forget the King, Clay needs a mech too!
    I’m loving Nexo Knights, and it seems chubbybots is too — they didn’t just use the theme, they also created a great model. I really like this. Not only is it a competent mech model, but it would fit right into the Nexo Knights set range as a robot for the character Clay. While the Continue reading (...)

  • Queen’s chamber
    Considering how action-packed a theme like LEGO Castle can get, it’s often surprising that some of the most interesting medieval creations are ones where there’s no sword fighting or sieges at all. Enter Marcel V and his tranquil build, the queen’s chamber. Featuring all the necessary royal (...)

  • What the hell are you?
    I always felt distant to series such as Bionicle and Hero Factory as they didn’t really demonstrate an actual LEGO experience for me. Same goes for the recent Buildable Figure or “constraction” series. Nevertheless, Jonas skillfully manages to show us how useful these specific parts can be for (...)

  • Review: 60134 Fun in the Park - City People Pack
    60134 Fun in the Park has been eagerly anticipated for the arrival of the baby minifig as well as a wheelchair, among other features. Others have dismissed it as purely an overpriced minifigure pack with mediocre minifigs. Which is the case? Join me on a visit to the park to find out…… Continue (...)

  • The Doctor visits a Victorian scrapyard
    At LEGO World in Utrecht last autumn, Ruben Ras presented a large Doctor Who diorama titled “Daleks in the Bricktorian Era.” Ruben recently posted close-up pictures of some of the sections, including this excellent scrapyard with an enormous steam engine. The blue TARDIS and engine dominate the (...)

This version of the character appeared in (...)

  • Has LEGO become too violent? [News]
    A recent study from the University of Canterbury proclaims that depictions of violence in LEGO set catalogs and the number of weapons in LEGO products has increased significantly as the result of a metaphorical “arms race” between toy manufacturers. The article’s authors include Qi Min Ser, Elena (...)

  • A special delivery for a wonderful human being
    While many hardcore builders like me cringe when we have to wade through atrociously cute photos of stormtroopers in unlikely situations while trying to get our LEGO fix on Flickr, there are photographers who take what is essentially LEGO product photography — just minifigs or out-of-the-box (...)

  • Dave, stop. Stop, will you?
    …but we all know Dave won’t stop. RichardBoard conquered us with just a single picture of his recent build recreating the scene of probably the most tense confrontation between a human and artificial intelligence, from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Although this vignette is much smaller than the (...)

  • 853544 Ninjago Skybound Battle Pack found in the wild
    Today sees the reveal of a new brand store exclusive battle pack based on the Ninjago Skybound subtheme (853544). The set has so far only been spotted in Europe, but every fan will want to get ahold of it once it is released worldwide as ALL of the four minifigures included are unique to the (...)

  • Amazingly beautiful LEGO schooner has unbelievable lines
    Sometimes a LEGO model is so incredible you stop and wonder if the builder is using the same catalog of bricks as the rest of us, because the finished model doesn’t even look like LEGO. Hoang H Dang is a masterful ship builder (we previously featured his incredible fishing vessel) and he’s (...)

  • He has awoken
    It seems serendipity has struck again. As I started reading H.P. Lovecraft: the Collected Fiction, Leonid An comes up with this awesome microscale build titled “The servant of Cthulhu”. To fully appreciated the great scale in this scene, check out this intimidating shot which also shows of the (...)

  • Review: 70318 The Glob Lobber
    I was not optimistic about Nexo Knights when we first began to receive information about the theme towards the end of last year but I was very pleased with the first wave of sets on the whole and have been looking forward to the second. 70318 The Glob Lobber is the smallest set of this wave, (...)

  • LEGO stork found in the wild
    While I’m not one for the current popular trend of taking pictures of LEGO in the outdoors, this build by Dödke deserves some attention. The stork’s design is instantly recognisable, and the shallow, rock-lined water pool adds a lot to the build. Unfortunately, this also comes with some sad news (...)

  • Love is a many splendored thing... Love lifts us up where we belong... All you need is love!
    While it will probably evoke fond memories of a certain musical movie extravaganza that turns 15 this month, this spectacular recreation of Paris’ famous Moulin Rouge music hall by domino39 brickpirate is pretty faithful to the original building — except for a few deliberately placed (...)

  • Steam dream machines
    This collection of stylish personal conveyances are Norwegian builder Lego Fjotten‘s first (and apparently accidental) foray into the work of LEGO Steampunk, but I think it’s fair to say he’s off to a good start. While each vehicle sports a very unique design, note the way the builder re-uses (...)

  • Bitten by the building bug
    I will confess that in middle school I was obsessed with insects, kept many varieties of them, and wanted to be an entomologist when I grew up. Yet now I absolutely can’t stand bugs at all! Funny how things change. Anyway, back in those days I really wanted to create anatomically correct 3D (...)

  • Review: 60121 Volcano Exploration Truck
    The Volcano Explorers subtheme dominates the City range this summer and follows the successful examples of the Deep Sea and Arctic sets by taking the action beyond the city limits and into the wilderness. 60121 Volcano Exploration Truck is perhaps the least unusual of the seven sets which have (...)

  • What have the Romans done for us? Apart from great buildings, obviously
    You wait ages for some epic brick creations based in Roman times, and then two come along at once. Just after we feature the enormous LEGO Temple of Minerva, here’s an excellent model by Mihai Marius Mihu. The landscaping on display here is really nice, with some good brickwork for cobblestones, (...)
