frankly, i don’t quite remember this sci-fi series but if you do, then you might just remember the spaceship, Battle Berzerk that appeared briefly on the first episode of the new show, before its untimely death. of course, it was never to be seen again. even though it had a short appearance, it has not stop huge Battle Galactica fan, one Gary King from recreating this monster ship with LEGO bricks. this highly detailed LEGO rendition of this forgettable spaceship measures a juggernaut 185-cm (73″) long, 61-cm (24″) wide, and 36-cm (14″) tall and weighs a mind-boggling 24.4 kilograms (54-pounds).

rubber band gun is nothing new and rubber band gun fashioned out from LEGO is not new either but a rubber band-shooting Lancer Assault Rifle from Gears of War fashioned out from LEGO is totally mind-blowing. according to its creator, this bad ass gun is a life-size assault rife built in accordance to the in game weapon and it is totally functional – yes, it shoots rubber bands. it even has reload-able LEGO magazines for the rubber band ammo and a real moving motorized chainsaw for some sawing action. simply breathtaking. of course, the sawing part is totally non-lethal and on the other hand, we also know how frail LEGO models can be, so don’t expect to wield this chainsaw after your neighbor who happens to own a 12 gauge shotgun.

whether you missed out the auction or simply can’t afford the insane (but for a good cause, of course) amount for a pair of the Back to the Future Nike MAG replica, then you probably want to consider making one yourself, out of LEGO. that was exactly what one dude, Alex aka Orion Pax did and it looks pretty cool too, well, at least in LEGO point of view. the downside is, you probably can’t wear it without breaking it apart and plus, it is guaranteed to be the most uncomfortable footwear ever. then again, if you are one of the 1,500 lucky (and filthy rich) folk to score this limited edition replica footwear, then i bet you won’t want to wear it too. it deserves to be displayed behind a bulletproof display showcase. another look at this LEGO Nike MAG after the break.
