400,000-Piece LEGO Hogwarts by Alice Finch

money can buy you a lot of objects of your desire, but one thing that it probably can’t buy is this awe-inspiring, 400,000-piece LEGO Hogwarts custom by LEGO enthusiast and mother of two, Alice Finch. the project started way back in 2011 and it took Alice a good one year and loads of money to complete. it showed up at last year’s Brickcon 2012 where Alice’s creation snagged both the ‘People’s Choice’ and ‘Best in Show’ awards. but it was only a couple of days ago that this majestic Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry did its official online unveiling. man, this is definitely going to go viral very quickly.

LEGO Ghostbusters Headquarters by Orion Pax

we said it before and we are going to say it again: not everything we featured here is to tempt you to part with your money. there are times when we kicked and stumbled upon stuff that makes us go ‘wow’ and that’s when money-can’t-buy-stuff gets featured here. the LEGO Ghostbusters Headquarters by Orion Pax is one such prime example. it is definitely a ‘wow’. no doubt about it. conceived by one Alex Jones aka Orion Pax, who spent countless hours watching the movies and the animated series, just to get the details of this red brick building over at North Moore Street in NYC perfectly right.

Original Mac crafted from LEGO Bricks

the Apple that Steve Jobs built has no doubt made history and with that, we also witness the birth of the great, great grandaddy of all-in-one computer – the original Macintosh. having said that, what better way to immortalize this icon then by crafting a ‘replica’ (albeit a scaled and non-working example) with an equally big name like LEGO? but no. LEGO is not offering an official Apple Macintosh LEGO set (and we all know the Playmobil Apple Store was a good joke some years ago) but this particular cute example was a creation of an individual by the name of Chris McVeigh which brings us to the bad news Continue reading Original Mac crafted from LEGO Bricks

lets face it: men can’t get enough of LEGO and cars, no matter what age they are in. therefore, by combining both of these loves is like the ultimate in men’s heavenly playground. well, may be the car in question is not your typical exotic or supercar but a classic like the Land Rover Defender, still it is something to behold, especially if it is huge (1:8.5 scale), built with almost 2,800 parts, including seven motors, three infrared receivers and features a selectable 2WD or 4WD system, high and low range system, live axles, working five-speed sequential gearbox complete with reverse gear, fully automatic clutch, two-speed transfer case, and working doors, hoods, and tailgate.

like we said, not everything we feature here is to tempt you into spending your hard-earned dough and you certainly won’t be able to buy these awesome fan-made Custom LEGO The Avengers’ Props. skilled LEGO builder Ken Robichaud created these brick-based full-scaled props inspired by the movie, The Avengers, which include Thor’s hammer, Captain America’s shield, Hawkeye’s bow and a set of specialty arrow heads, and Black Widow’s equipment. and for those who are wondering… no, there’s no Hulk’s fist, which we thought would be an awesome addition (though technically speaking, that’s no weapon) and we are missing a repulsor too.

though i have a special affinity for LEGO, i admit that i don’t have the natural ‘LEGO hands’ to custom anything at all and that leaves me with the option of just admiring the great works done by true LEGO masters – like Sven Junga who lovingly created this huge 15,000-piece Hyperion battlecruiser from the game, StarCraft II. though it may not be as enormous as the LEGO Ventator-class Star Destroyer but it is not lacking in the details department. it took Junga six months to complete this beauty and he’s not about to stop there as it looks like his Terran army is growing. treat yourself to some awesome images of this beautiful creation after the break. trust me, LEGO fans (StarCraft fans or not) won’t want to miss it.

what the world’s favorite bricks can do is only limited by our imagination and since Christmas is drawing close, wouldn’t it be fitting to use these tiny toy bricks to create a Christmas tree? that’s exactly what Bright Bricks, the sole LEGO-certified professionals (yes, there is actually such certification) in the UK, has done. billed as the world’s largest LEGO Christmas tree, it measures a gargantuan 38-feet (11.6-meter) tall, beating the current record holder by a good 2.6-meter. the tree uses an astounding 600,000 LEGO bricks for its creation and is topped with 1,000 LEGO ornaments and lightings. of course, LEGO by itself wouldn’t hold up the weight and hence Bright Bricks had a 3-ton steel framework in place to keep things together. this awesome Faux-fir LEGO Christmas Tree is currently on display at the St. Pancras International Station till January 4th, 2012. so if you happen to be in and around that location, do pop by for a look at this magnificent creation. more images after the break.
