This Custom LEGO VW Karmann Ghia Has Removable Radio Just Like The Classic

The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia introduced between 50s and 70s may not be as iconic as the VW Camper or the Beetle, but it was actually a very well received car of its time, having seen a production of no less than 445,000 cars and that’s not including the 41K or so made in Brazil for the South America markets. Despite so, it remains largely as an enthusiast thing, which means you ought to be a huge VW nuts to actually know this car and appreciate its beauty. And I guess that kind of makes LEGO builder Mandylion777 one such enthusiast cos’ he actually put together a detailed LEGO model of the iconic Volkswagen Karmann Ghia.

Vote So This Ultra Realistic LEGO Jaguar E-Type Roadster Can Be A Reality

LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS took realism in scale LEGO model to the next level, but can the same level of realism achieved or surpassed without Technic parts? As it turns, it can, as proven by LEGO Ideas contributor Ozzyeatingbats’ (no prize for guessing who this talented pal idolizes) creation called Jaguar E-Type Roadster.

LEGO UCS Tie Fighter Turned Into UCS Tie Interceptor Is Beyond Awesome

When it comes LEGO UCS (Ultimate Collector’s Series) Star Wars, they are pretty much as good as any LEGO Star Wars can get, but not all are without flaws. Personally, I have quite a handful of LEGO UCS Star Wars, which I am cool with, but not to imgur user jazzbass’s son. Starting with a UCS TIE Fighter set, jazzbass junior worked to turn it into a TIE Interceptor, paying attention to the aircraft wings, and the result is nothing short of spectacular. The details that went into the wings, which are the main mod here, are simply mind-blowing. Continue reading LEGO UCS Tie Fighter Turned Into UCS Tie Interceptor Is Beyond Awesome

Digitally Rendered LEGO Transformers T-Rex Grimlock Have To Be Made!

LEGO Digital Designer has come a long way. The last time I used it, I thought simple LEGO set is all it can do and to be honest, I have absolutely no idea it is capable of building exceedingly complex projects such as the one you see here, the T-Rex Grimlock, the leader of the Dinobots straight out from the movie, Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. I am a huge fan of complex LEGO sets and this 4,410 pieces LEGO Technic set sure tickles my fancy (like a lot), but alas, to my dismay, it ain’t a real set. It is not even a one-off set; it is a virtual LEGO set created by Flickr user Nicola Stocchi. Damn it, Nicola Stocchi for creating such a beautiful Transformers Grimlock which I couldn’t stop dreaming about it since I first laid eyes on it a couple of months ago. Continue reading Digitally Rendered LEGO Transformers T-Rex Grimlock Have To Be Made!

Incredibly Detailed LEGO Kennedy Space Center Had Our Minds Blown

LEGO is amazing. It can recreate so many things in incredible realism that sometimes we wonder, why real things aren’t made of LEGO bricks? Of course, real things can’t be made of LEGO bricks. That’s a fantasy that no one wants to come true. Anyways, the Custom LEGO Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39A, created by one LEGO MOC enthusiast Lia Chan, is yet another example. Paying tribute to the now defunct NASA Space Shuttle program, Chan recreated the iconic and memorable Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39A in all its brick glory – completing it with details like the launch platform with the catwalks and the works, crawler transport system, and of course, NASA’s retired Space Shuttle Atlantis.

LEGO Enthusiast Built A Star Wars Nebulon-B With Incredible Details

When we talked about LEGO Star Wars, be it custom or not, stuff like Star Destroyer, TIE Fighter, X-Wing Fighter comes to mind. That said, not often you will find fan-made, much less the official set, that features lesser but no less impressive spaceships. This is where MOC enthusiast Morten Svendsen stands out in the world of Star Wars MOCs. He built a massive and super detailed model of the much overlooked craft called Nebulon-B Medical Frigate. Well, you don’t see Nebulon-B often in the original trilogy. In fact, you probably only had a glimpse in The Empire Strikes Back when Luke Skywalker was onboard to have his severed hand fixed and that was that.

Guitar Playing LEGO Mindstorms Plays Of Monsters And Men’s Little Talks

If you have doubts about if robots could ever take over human beings, then you should really take a look at creations like the LEGO Mindstorms Guitar Robot designed and built by YouTuber Fastythefastcat. Why? Because it strums a guitar, complete with cord manipulation, to a tune and it is made out of freaking LEGO! That’s why. Granted it is cobbled together using a slightly advanced ‘toy’, the LEGO Mindstorms, which allows for programming and the works for the magic to happen. Having said that, if a ‘toy’ set can be made to do something with such complexity, then you can imagine what industrial or lab-grade components can achieved now and in the future.

20,000-plus Pieces LEGO Star Destroyer Has Interior That Will Blow Your Mind

There are a handful of Certified LEGO Professional – twelve, to be exact – and not being one doesn’t make one less adept in LEGO building. Imgur user by the handle of Doomhandle is one brilliant example and his creation, a custom Imperial Star Destroyer Tyrant is a perfect testimony that this man is a pure LEGO genius. If you think the 75055 LEGO Star Destroyer is cool and the 10030 LEGO UCS Star Destroyer is awesome (it is awesome, btw, I had that myself at one point), then Doomhandle’s custom LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer Tyrant will Continue reading 20,000-plus Pieces LEGO Star Destroyer Has Interior That Will Blow Your Mind
