  • The temple of paperwork
    In an office as fancy as this one by Sven Franic, paperwork is no longer a chore, but a joy. Warm earth tones, elegant ornaments, and a comfortable chair make for a great atmosphere. Anyone spending most of their day writing would be envious of such an office. The centerpiece of the build is (...)

  • Flying this ship is as easy as Aurek, Besh, Cresh
    Aurebesh is the writing system in Star Wars used to transcribe Galactic Basic, one of the most used languages in the galaxy. It first appeared in the 1983 movie Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, but it was expanded into an alphabet by Stephen Crane of West End Games for gamers to use (...)

  • Prequel back to the Battle of Theed
    For obvious reasons, everybody is excited about Star Wars at the moment. I have also been struck by the hype, as well as nostalgia, and both are important elements of Star Wars’ success. KW_Vauban hits the nostalgic soft spot for me, not only by recreating a stunning prequel scene, but giving it (...)

    With the releases of The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and now The Last Jedi, it’s cool to love Star Wars again.

  • Rogue One incoming!
    There have been a lot of Scarif scenes from Rogue One making the rounds at LEGO conventions and online, but this microscale scene by aido k is one of my favorites.

  • Brick-built gingerbread – easy on the eye, hard on the teeth
    The decorations on these LEGO gingerbread treats are strictly-speaking more “placed” than “built”, but it creates a mouthwatering image all the same. Cecilie Fritzvold‘s simple little arrangement is by no means the most complex LEGO model we’ve ever featured, but it’s a brilliant creation all the (...)

  • Achieve serenity with free LEGO building instructions for an “Outlaw Spaceship” from TBB [Instructions]
    As a holiday gift to our readers, The Brothers Brick commissioned talented LEGO artist Tyler Clites to design a LEGO model that everybody can build. This custom “Outlaw Spaceship” should make any sci-fi fan’s heart twinkle like a firefly in the depths of space. Our simple, step-by-step (...)

  • A utopian place to call home
    Life can be busy and sometimes we need to find a place that allows us to relax and unwind. Rather than search high and low for that special place, Milan Sekiz has built his own sanctuary with LEGO bricks. This tranquil scene is beautiful, with its soothing colour scheme and some very nice (...)

  • One tram-endous model
    Public transportation has never looked as cool as this tram by Vince Toulouse, who has put a ton of design consideration into this multi-story vehicle. There are some very cool details built using a number of distinct LEGO System, DUPLO, and Fabuland components in yellow. Besides the clean (...)

  • A Jurassic Park Jeep you’ll want to keep [Instructions]
    There must be something about Jurassic Park that LEGO fans are fond of, because there seems to be a never-ending stream of cool Jurassic Park builds.

  • A little bubble of festive cheer
    Every LEGO-loving home should have some brick-built decorations. Why not take inspiration from seb toutouille and build your own lovely little snow globe model? This is so sweet, with good use of unicorn horns and ice cream scoops to create snowy upper branches for the trees. The silver and (...)

  • Murder in Dead End alley
    If you have never heard of Barthezz Brick before, I will not blame you. But after this recent creation of his, “A Cold Day in Hell,” there will be no excuse for that! We rarely feature custom minifigures, which seem to be Barthezz’s strongest point, so there is no surprise he has stayed under the (...)

  • 2018 seasonal LEGO BrickHeadz revealed: 6 new original characters starting with 40270 Valentine’s Bee [News]

  • Flitting hither and thither, the fantail always appears in a dither
    The New Zealand fantail, or p?wakawaka in Te Reo (the language of the native Maori), is one of the cheekiest little birds you will ever meet. Beautifully recreated in LEGO by BrickMonkey MOCs, the fantail is known for its friendly ‘cheet cheet’ call and energetic flying antics. Smaller than a (...)

  • Have you got the space for a tree like this?
    In space no-one can hear you sing carols. Miro Dudas has created a different kind of LEGO Christmas tree. Instead of any leaves or wood, thirty spaceman minifigures form the familiar shape. They’re apparently pulling off this feat of agility thanks to a network of sand blue sausages each (...)

  • A perfectly proportioned presentation
    Surely there’s a strong positive correlation between the number of intricate and charming medieval LEGO creations one comes across and how many times one smiles in a given day. Or at least I think there’s something to that. This wonderful scene by “kofi” certainly brought a smile to my face. This (...)

  • Well-made LEGO trees really get my gears going
    There’s two things LEGO Castle fans love to build: Trees and walls. Showing us interesting ways to do both is this microscale hideout by Dr. Zarkow. The wooden walls around the main structures are simple enough — just brown bars inserted into the hollow studs of flower pieces with some rubber (...)

  • UNSC HRUNTING Mark III “Cyclops” exoskeleton from Halo Wars
    The “Cyclops” mech appears in the Halo Wars real-time strategy games, reproduced in excellent LEGO form by ZiO Chao. While it may appear rather tiny in the game, seeing it at minifig-scale helps emphasize what a big stompy thing it really is. With an overall dark gray or olive-drab color scheme (...)

  • Market District – Ring of Kafrene from Star Wars Rogue One
    I have always loved the look and feel of the lower levels on Star Wars planets like Coruscant, and while this scene by eeza isn’t exactly that — it’s based on the Ring of Kafrene mining outpost featured in Rogue One — it still has that underworld, black market slums feel I so adore. The Continue (...)

  • There is no problem that cannot be fixed by a combat mech
    Dealing with the “situation” from an earlier build by Devid VII, the astronauts get their combat mech ready for action. There are so many tools, canisters and other industrial elements everywhere that I feel comfortable trusting them with anything. While the detailed floors, clutter and minifig (...)

  • A spectacular avail of scale
    When you view a LEGO model in person, you’re limited to seeing things as they appear to the naked eye. In the digital realm, especially when a healthy amount of photoshopping is involved, scale is just as ripe for manipulation and modification as anything else. With Koen‘s latest build, it’s (...)
