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

Artist Explores Engineer’s Mind With This Awesome LEGO Kinetic Sculpture

Human’s mind is somewhat of a rocket science. The complexity far exceeds anything mankind have known, but what if you could narrow it down to the specific, like an engineer’s mind? How would it look like? Well, instead of showing a brain and pointing out the various lobes and neurons, which would only makes sense to neurologists, LEGO enthusiast Kristal simplified it with LEGO bricks. The kinetic sculpture, entitled “The Engineer”, is not in anyway a medically accurate model of a human’s brain, but rather, it is Kristal’s take of an engineer’s mind.

Legoland Windsor Gets Ginormous 500,000 Bricks LEGO Death Star

What you see here is a massive LEGO Death Star and when we said this thing is massive, we do mean 500,000 LEGO bricks kind of massive. If that number doesn’t astound you, how about the fact that this custom job, which was made for Legoland Windsor UK, measures 2.5 meters (8 feet 2.43 inches) across and is 3 meters (9 feet 10.11 inches) high, and it weighs a deadly 860 kilograms (1,900 lbs)! As you would have imagined, the becoming of this thing wasn’t a walk in the park. It took 15 LEGO modellers three months to built, and an entire day to it get installed on site, plus another six weeks to complete the battle scene between X-Wing fighters and TIE fighters. Continue reading Legoland Windsor Gets Ginormous 500,000 Bricks LEGO Death Star

Mind Blown: Titanic’s Final Moment Recreated With LEGO Bricks

The sinking of the RMS Titanic was a disaster not to be celebrated, but when LEGO Certified Professional Ryan McNaught aka The Brickman recreated the last moment of Titanic before it sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean in LEGO, it totally blew our mind. It took over 250 hours and around 120,000 LEGO bricks to bring this tragedy to live. It was a grim reminder one of the world’s worst sea tragedy, but we can’t help but to marvel at Ryan’s creation. The set was a team work by Ryan and two other builders, Mitchell Kruik and Clay Mellington, and it started on December 19th 2015 and completed on January 12th, 2016.

Custom LEGO Millennium Falcon Made LEGO UCS Set Looks Puny

So you think LEGO UCS Star Wars Millennium Falcon is huge? Well, it was, until LEGO enthusiast Marshal Banana’s creation comes along. So, yes. Another person has recreated the iconic Millennium Falcon using the world’s most famous plastic bricks, but Marshal’s work of art is not just another modified Corellian YT-300 Light Freighter. His is huge. Like, insanely huge. It is ridiculously detailed and an accurate representation of Millennium Falcon as seen on the seventh Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. Measuring an astounding 32 by 21 by 7 inches (82 x 54 x 18 cm) and tipping the scale at around 22 lbs (10 kg), Marshal’s custom LEGO Millennium Falcon is made up of around 7,500 LEGO pieces and is designed without interior to keep the weight in check cos’ Marshal is planning to display it in a flying position as it should be.

Teen Built A Vending Machine For Chicken McNuggets Made Entirely From LEGO Bricks

Two things that are really amazing about this particular LEGO project by Youtuber Astonishing Studios. First, this dude is only 16 years old and second, it is a fully functional McNugget vending machine – made entirely out of LEGO with a little help from LEGO robotic kit, Mindstorms. Granted, this sweet little creation can only hold and ‘sell’ two boxes of McDonald’s Chicken McNugget with no option for the choice of sauce. It is a pretty mind-blowing creation nonetheless and an awesome showcase of LEGO’s flexibility and Astonishing Studios’ creativity. Continue reading Teen Built A Vending Machine For Chicken McNuggets Made Entirely From LEGO Bricks

Black Ops 3 Purifier LEGO-lized, Can Actually Spew Out Flames!

Is there a limit to what LEGO bricks can build? Well, it looks there is almost no limit to speak off. These plastic bricks can be used to build anything from a life-size drivable car to a functioning cyborg arm to a working computer keyboard, and now, you can add flamethrower to the list of incredible things built with the world’s most awesome plastic bricks. Yes. You heard that right, a flamethrower – a weapon that spews out fire. Created by LEGO enthusiast by the handle of Zazi Nombies, this flamethrower is based on the in-game flamethrower known as “Purifier” in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
