  • 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 (...)

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
