  • We’re gonna need a bigger rolled-up newspaper...
    I always love builds that use a specific part to great effect. Case in point is Takamichi Irie‘s utilization of the wings from an Ant Man LEGO set on his macro scale hornet. The shaping of the segmented body and precise colour blocking is expertly done. Not to mention the lovely combination of (...)

  • A mech built to scavenge for his existence
    Can you picture this mech wandering across a post-apocalyptic wasteland scavenging for parts and power? Bregma Nicle has built a scavenger mech called Bad Diesel who packs plenty of attitude and more than a little intimidation into his bulky frame. I love the breathing apparatus and his (...)

  • A futuristic stroll down memory lane
    I have a thing for space corridors. I can’t explain it, I can’t define it — I just have a thing for space corridors. Turns out, I’m not the only one! Tim Goddard has created an H-shaped corridor section inspired by Jeremy Williams’ Alpha Zero Niner and built as part of a collaboration to be revealed (...)

  • Golden mech deserves a medal
    The use of pearl gold and light gray LEGO bricks to depict machinery and greebly technical elements is the hallmark (and something of a cliché) of the Steampunk genre. You don’t often see this color scheme deployed in modern or futuristic themes, and that’s what makes this excellent mech creation (...)

  • Everything you need to be happy is right there, in your heart
    Delving deeper into the artistic aspect of LEGO building, Timofey Tkachev follows up his previous build of a blood fountain with a strong image of spring rain, which has a very impressionist feel to it. The composition makes for a very powerful image, with contrast between colours and textures (...)

  • Early ideas books
    There's a dearth of news at the moment so let's have a #ThrowbackTuesday rather than wait until Thursday... Over the last few weeks Matt Hocker has been busy scanning old printed material for inclusion in our library and today I found the time to add some of it, starting with five old (...)

  • Your dream apartment is just a few bricks away
    Heikki Mattila continues to inspire with another brilliant interior, this time with an emphasis on mirrors. These aren’t official LEGO pieces, but are instead a reflective material that has been cut to size. Even if you’re a purist, you can probably agree that they add a nice dimension to the (...)

  • Do you want to build some BrickHeadz...?
    Disney’s Frozen left us with a couple of heavy earworms still playing in the very background of our minds, but CK HO doesn’t let our favourite winter characters go. Recreated in the style of BrickHeadz, Elsa and Anna (featuring Olaf and Swen) do not look as excited as the versions by YOS Lego we (...)

  • I’m completely operational and all my bricks are put together perfectly
    It’s the great-granddaddy of rogue AIs — HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Built from a small selection of LEGO bricks by Jason Allemann, this model perfectly captures the unblinking stare of the famous fictional computer. I can’t look at this without hearing the iconic voice in my head, only this (...)

    Love him or hate him, Lex Luther is a pretty cool bad guy! Kale Frost has captured Superman’s archenemy in his famous Warsuit.

  • Build your own LEGO Citroën DS and then drive your minifig self through the Vézère Valley [Instructions]
    The vintage French Ghostbusters-themed Citroën DS we featured here a few days ago was certainly adorable, but what if you want to build your own early 1970’s LEGO Citroën DS? Creator OutBricks comes to the rescue with step-by-step instructions for the DS on which he based his “Ecteau-un”. You can (...)

  • One, two... Freddy’s coming for you... three, four... better lock your door...
    Romanian builder Letranger Absurde has been working on a series of horror movie vignettes, the latest of which is from 1984’s Nightmare on Elm Street. The ingenious parts usage for creating the famous scene of Freddy Krueger coming through the wall is eerily accurate. The use of minifigure (...)

  • Review: 30449 The Milano
    The Milano is the main spacecraft used by the Guardians of the Galaxy for interstellar flights and has been officially rendered in LEGO three times, including a mini polybag version, 30449 The Milano. It's currently available at Toys R Us in the UK for £4.99 or is free with LEGO Super (...)

  • As long as Imagination and Creativity exist so will Lego
    lugnet.general: I prefer to work with LEGO as the quality is guaranteed, if there is a problem I can easily and quickly solve it by communicating with a company I know will be happy to help. So, that's why I think LEGO as a brand is so strong and should remain so for a long while. I enjoy (...)

  • Are you also getting sick of LEGO Ideas?
    lugnet.general: But what's the real problem with Lego Ideas?? The majority of project proposals, and those are ugly stuff made by kids. You certainly can't blame Lego for not rejecting stuff made by their #1 target, and I don't think they should. But it's the way it is, the (...)

  • The battle of Helm’s Deep is over. The battle for Middle-earth is about to begin.
    When Saruman sends his orc army to knock on your front door, you have to be prepared. Lucky for LEGO King Théoden and the rest of the Rohirrim, Classical Bricks has constructed an impressively massive and rather sound-looking fortress. This walled stronghold is built right into the mountainside (...)

  • Mladen Pejic’s Blacktron rovers
    Mecha legend Mladen Pejic has built an interesting pair of quad-legged rovers in Blactron I & II livery, using an ingenious technique to create spherical rollers as opposed to wheels. The resulting ‘legs’ give the rovers a wonderful sense of character and allow all manners of dynamic posing. (...)

  • Cyborg Chris and his best friend Botdog
    I can’t think of anything that would be much cooler than having a loyal robo-dog. Now Botdog by Gamabomb is most definitley high on the cool index. This thing borders more on high-quality concept art than a custom LEGO creation. The mixing of both old and new dark greys, coupled with some very (...)

  • Lobsters will finally have their revenge against Thermidor
    While most mechs stand on two feet and resemble a humanoid shape, builder David Liu explores a new subject with an unexpected mech in the form of a lobster! It’s more likeable than one might expect, especially because it has a tiny lobster as a pilot and a cannon mount to blast anything into (...)

  • FN-2187, we have a situation – report to sanitation for cleanup
    We all had a good laugh and surprise at Finn’s response in The Force Awakens when we learnt that stormtroopers had day jobs back at the base. Even better, they do menial jobs even if it means cleaning up unmentionables, perhaps. Builder Andreas Lenander gives us a peek at perhaps what Finn had (...)

  • Snoopy and Woodstock at rest
    This brilliant little LEGO recreation of Snoopy and Woodstock was apparently a commissioned model. I really hope _BrickBro_ didn’t get paid peanuts for it. This is a deceptively simple build, and I predict it took a long time to get it this perfect. The use of old-style minifig capes for (...)

  • Iconic buildings from the heart of Malaysia
    When LEGO released their new Skyline Architecture series, it was inevitable that we started seeing LEGO builders take the diminutive buildings to heart and begin creating skylines closer to their own homeland that LEGO missed in their official sets. This build of three iconic buildings in Kuala (...)

  • LEGO Resistance Skimmer from Star Wars: The Last Jedi
    The recent Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi teaser trailer has sparked a lot of dicussion amongst fans, but the visuals are undoubtedly breathtaking.

  • But where are Princess Ida & the Totem?
    Ok, I have to admit when I first saw this I immediately thought it was supposed to be from Monument Valley, the addicting puzzle game from ustwo. But alas, Bangoo H was actually building the Hanging Gardens of Babylon – one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. However, my misinterpretation (...)
