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.

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.

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.

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
Is there a limit to what LEGO bricks can build? Well, it looks there is almost no limit to speak off.

And yes, it actually spits out flame which is as horrific as it is awesome. Continue reading Black Ops 3 Purifier LEGO-lized, Can Actually Spew Out Flames!
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the ending of WWII and it seems about right for war machines buff, Dan Siskind of Brickmania, to create something appropriate: the iconic USS Missouri. USS Missouri (Hull symbol: BB-63), affectionately known as Big Mo, was the Iowa-class battleship that sailed into the port of Japan as the site of the surrender of Japan which ended the WWII. So, you can see where Dan’s coming from. While the real deal now rests at Pearl Harbor, serving as a museum ship, Dan has put together a what he called, the longest LEGO ship ever built. And how long are we talking about? Well, Dan’s LEGO-lized USS Missouri stretches an astounding twenty-five and half foot long and packs over a million LEGO pieces. Continue reading This Is The World’s Largest LEGO Ship And It Has Over A Million Bricks.
Something really, really big is heading to The Art of the Brick: DC Comics exhibition in Sydney, Australia and that ‘something’ is Nathan Sawaya’s interpretation of the world most famous caped crime fighter’s Batmobile as designed by Jim Lee during a Comic-Con International Panel at SDCC. It took the LEGO maestro three months, including planning, to put together this 18-foot long crime-fighting vehicle that is composed of no less than half a million bricks. Continue reading The World’s Biggest LEGO Batmobile Measures an Incredible 18 Feet Long
There are varying degree of violence in movies. Some like the Lord of the Rings and Marvel’s superhero flicks are considered mild and are widely accepted. As such big toy companies like Danish LEGO definitely has no qualms about turning out LEGO sets for those movies. And what about Mad Max: Fury Road? Ermmm… about that, we’d say that they are unlikely to be considered as mainstream LEGO set cos’ you know, Mad Max’s violence is a whole different ballgame. The MPAA rating pretty much tells it all as it is rated ‘R’ for “intense sequences of violence throughout, and for disturbing images.” We’d be surprise if it ever make it as an official LEGO product, until then Mad Max fans and lovers of LEGO will have to custom build those lovely spike-covered rides if they want them in their collection – just like what LEGO builder Will did. Continue reading This is How Mad Max Vehicles Look Like in all its LEGO Brick Glory
There are many LEGO geniuses and Sariel is among them, specializing in custom Technic creations. One of his latest works that caught our eyes is this motorcycle as featured in the now-classic Akira anime. The topic of the unnamed bike rode by the 80s manga protagonist has been tackled by other top-notch builders, but what makes Sariel’s iteration stands out are the custom stickers, working LED lights, and functional drive and steering. And yes, it is electric powered, albeit it being an external one, due to the compact size of the model. The 715g model is driven by two motors; one drives a pair of small wheels directly under the chassis, right in front of the rear-wheel and hidden away by the side fairings, and another is used to manipulate the steering. Continue reading You Won’t Believe This Iconic Akira Bike Model is Actually Made of LEGO Bricks and it Drives Too
So you think LEGO’s 5,195-piece Star Wars Millennium Falcon Ultimate Collector Series is impressive? Probably it is impressive, until you see this custom creations by Singapore-based Titans Creations’ iteration which is composed of a whopping 10,000+ pieces and what’s more, the beauty isn’t just skin deep; it was created in all its cross-sectioned glory. The intricacy that goes into this iconic Star Wars modified space freighter is nothing short of mind-blowing. In fact, if you look at the final product photo, you’d be forgiven to think that it was one of those cross-section images pulled from the pages of Popular Science. It took the six-man team over two months to complete, in time for Legoland Malaysia’s May 4 event.
