  • Preview: 75144 Snowspeeder
    The Ultimate Collector's Series was lambasted last year but the announcement of 75144 Snowspeeder seems to have been met with an exceedingly positive reaction. The T-47 Airspeeder is a very popular vehicle and was previously rendered at this scale in 10129 Rebel Snowspeeder, an impressive (...)

  • Feedspot ranks Brickset #3
    Earlier this month Feedspot published a list of the top 50 LEGO blogs and websites for LEGO fans and I was happy to see that Brickset comes in at #3, behind LEGO's YouTube channel and The Brothers Brick. I don't know what methodology has been used to determine ranking as the order (...)

  • Cheers, love! LEGO Tracer’s Pulse Pistols from Overwatch
    Tracer has become my hero of choice when playing in Overwatch competitive play on offense. Her movement abilities suit my play style of unpredictable movement—giving me a chance to compensate for my poor aim. So my latest LEGO build is of Tracer’s primary ability, her dual rapid-fire Pulse (...)

  • Bringing music to the masses
    The beginning of the 20th century brought music to the masses with the invention of mass market gramophone records, allowing for the reproduction of sound and radio broadcasts. Jazz and Blues were the first new-age genres to form entire cultures around them. Sven Franic‘s entry to the 2017 (...)

  • Hippie-er times on the Volkswagen Combi
    There’s something very appealing about the nostalgic past of the Volkswagen T1 campers. The LEGO VW Camper 10220 remains a favourite with fans, as evidenced by the fact that it’s been in production since 2011. At a smaller scale, though, this fan-made version by mzxgod does a great job at roughly (...)

  • Madame Pele unleashes her fiery anger
    It’s hard to improve on the builder’s own title of “Panic in paradise!”, but when I first saw this beautiful and terrifying little scene by Marcel V., I immediately thought of the Hawaiian goddess Pele, simultaneously destroying as she creates new land. While I’m personally not a huge fan of loose (...)

  • Bunny-bot out to do some damage
    While this almost bunny-mecha looking contraption looks pretty cute, take a moment and do give it some thought. Why would a bunny minifigure need a mechanical bot such as this? The only reason I can think of is to get some damage done! With those huge feet, I’m sure a stomp or two would take (...)

  • It’s not wise to upset a wookie
    You can almost hear Chewie growling with frustration in Mike Sinclair‘s interpretation of the classic scene on Cloud City from The Empire Strikes Back. Lobot looks on suspiciously as the Ugnaughts taunt our favorite Wookie, throwing C-3P0’s head between themselves. I love the greebling used to (...)

  • Game, set and match
    Builder Martin Harris took a break from his usual Star Wars fayre to build something requested by a family member. The result is this charming minifig scale tennis court. There are so many neat little touches here – the choice of pink for the playing surface, the brick-built line markings, the (...)

  • A perfect reflection: the Taj Mahal in microscale
    India’s most famous piece of architecture is also the world’s most famous mausoleum and the final resting place of Mumtaz Mahal, a 17th-century empress consort. Builder Brick Point brings us a lovely microscale LEGO rendition complete with the tomb and its surrounding grounds, including the long (...)

  • Then nightly sings the staring owl
    Owls are mainly nocturnal, solitary birds of prey who are known for their silent flight. Most birds of prey have eyes on the sides of their heads, but the owl’s forward-facing eyes facilitate their low-light hunting. Shawn Snyder has created a LEGO owl with plenty of attitude and a somewhat (...)

  • Double falcon or double awesome?
    Sky-fi may be among the more obscure LEGO building themes, but if you dig deep, plenty of amazing models can be found. The F70 Double Falcon by Vincent Tolouse is a great representation of the alternate-history early aviation-based theme, because it has everything, from beautiful curves to (...)

  • Nice ABS!
    Who needs to hit the gym when you have abs made of ABS? This stud by timofey_tkachev has the perfect grin to show off his six-pack—or should that be six-brix? The use of the tan large-figure parts for the pecs, lats and calves are spot on. The post Nice ABS! appeared first on The Brothers (...)

    This windsurfer figure by Dmitriy and Anna is awesome, but just glancing at the picture hurts as my summer vacation is still too far away! Even though there are no huge waves around and the board has no actual sail, the posture of the figure is what makes this vignette so good. The figure on (...)

  • A place where a technical mind is at peace
    I am not here to downplay the classic minifig’s ability to convey emotion, but it is a fact that its range of movement is much more limited than that of a Technic figure. Heikki Mattila uses this posability to great effect in his large scale vignette called “Thinking at night”. The technic figure (...)

  • Calosoma australodrepa
    Insects and other arthropods lend themselves surprisingly well to be built from LEGO. There are many elements like hinge pieces and wedge slopes that are oddly appropriate for building creepy crawlies. Olga Rodinova (????? ?????????) uses such pieces very well to create this (probably very smelly) beetle. (...)

  • Un-BEAR-able cuteness
    The overwhelming cuteness of this red panda by Vitreolum might blind you to some of the great LEGO parts usage on display. Sure, it’s the chubby feet and the stripey tail that’ll catch your eye — but don’t miss the white croissants as bushy eyebrows, and the black Kepi cavalry hat for a nose! This (...)

    41594 Captain Armando Salazar is the second of the two Pirates of the Caribbean BrickHeadz which have been released and is, remarkably, my favourite of them! The drab colours are not conducive to an impressive display model but I love his unusual hairstyle and the printed elements look (...)

  • When steam powered a revolution
    The Industrial Revolution began in Britain in the late 1700s and saw a shift from manufacturing within people’s homes, using hand tools or basic machines, to powered machinery, factories, and mass production. Factories and steam locomotives were signature developments of the times. Toltomeja has (...)

  • Beautiful and dangerous
    This entry for the ABS Builder Challenge by Brother Steven is simply prickle-licious. The dark red and bright yellow of the desert flower really make the creation leap out, contrasting beautifully against the green cactus. And those olive spines are so prickly they almost sting your eyes. This (...)
