No, you won’t need an eye patch to be the commander and top honcho of your very own Helicarrier. What you’ll do need are 22,649 LEGO bricks, a lot of money to buy those bricks, time to kill, lots of patience, and a place to store that massive 85-inch floating LEGO fortress. LEGO Ideas user […]
If you have fond memories of these devices – except for the Instagram camera – chances are, you’re getting old! Artist and designer Chris McVeigh created LEGO recreations of outdated technology like analog phones, boxy TV sets, and phased out video game consoles.
Here’s your chance to play George R.R. Martin and be the almighty hand that decides who lives and dies in Game of Thrones. ‘Dragon Sword Fighter Force’ is a Game of Thrones-inspired collection of LEGO mini figures that include our favourite characters from the series.
‘The Legographer’, or a regular LEGO man armed with a camera, travels the big and mysterious world around him and takes amazing photos along the way. Meanwhile, what he doesn’t know is he’s being captured on camera as well, by UK-based photographer Andrew Whyte.
Oslo-based advertising creatives Jason Kinsella and Charlotte Bakken have managed to combine two iconic products that will make anyone green with envy. They constructed a 1984 Apple Macintosh computer using only LEGO bricks. But wait, here’s the cooler part: you can insert an iPad into the frame to make it fully functional! Simply slide the […]
What’s better than having Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur? Having a LEGO mech version of all three! Flickr user Stormbringer created three geeky versions of the original starter Pokemon by applying LEGO blocks and turning them into robots. It even comes with a cockpit for a pilot! Oh how wish these were real!
You thought stepping on a Lego brick can do some damage? Wait until you get a whiff of this season’s latest accessory, a £5,000 Chanel Lego Clutch. Now that’s some damage. If you’re not into bags, why not a pair of Lego sunglasses, or Lego heels, or perhaps a Lego bowtie? Though I’m pretty sure […]
Annette Jung makes films for Talking Animals, a Berlin-based animation studio. Her latest thrilling stop-motion short features Michael Jackson’s Thriller in Lego blocks, which came next after her Lego Dance video. Full-length versions, please!

Just when we decided the world had exhausted all the possibilities for using Lego, we chanced upon this crazy Alien-inspired Lego facehugger by Spain-based DeviantArt member Carlos Valero.

James Bond (and Lego) fans will no doubt get a kick out of this re-make from Bricktease. Created using scenes and figures entirely composed of Lego, the first few minutes of the opening scene of Casino Royale is surprisingly accurate and super-clever. The fight scene is particularly brilliant/hilarious. Go Lego-Bond, go!
Now this is truly Lego for adults. The arched backs and suggestive poses of these pixelated Lego sculptures of realistic female forms — virtually all nude except for stilettos and g-strings — give the innocuous building blocks a decidedly adult spin. Fun. Photographer Jean-Yves Lemoigne teamed up with 3D artist Pierrick from Spark for a […]
German ad agency Jung von Matt were recently in cahoots with Lego to launch this pretty minimalistic series of ads for the toy giant. Look and guess which cartoons each one’s from.
