It is a good thing that Transformers isn’t part of the LEGO collection since the sets will probably not be able to transform, which would be pretty damn lame because transforming is kind of the highlight of any Transformers toys. However, a recently approved LEGO Ideas submission may change all that. I am not saying it will, but it could. Anyways, the set that could possibly pave way for transformable LEGO sets is the LEGO Ideas Voltron: Defender of the Universe Transformable Set submitted by Malaysia-based Philippine software architect, Leandro Tayag AKA len_d69. Continue reading LEGO Ideas Voltron Transformable Set Gets LEGO Nods Of Approval!
The LEGO NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309) with 1,969 pieces was the biggest LEGO Ideas set when it was first made official, but not for long because, as it turns out, another LEGO Ideas has since snatched the title from it.

If there’s one genre that has not received as much love from LEGO, it would be steampunk. Ok. I know steampunk is totally fictional, but so are many other LEGO sets, and therefore, it is not entirely audacious to think the Custom LEGO Steampunk Battleship by A.Graham LEGO Design, submitted to LEGO Ideas, deserves some serious love. There’s something about high-tech setup in an era that weren’t suppose to that tickles our imaginations and the allure of steam-powered technology that powers familiar, everyday machines is beyond words can describe. Continue reading Custom LEGO Steampunk Battleship Really Should Be An Official LEGO Set!
What do you think of the official LEGO Hulkbuster set (LEGO Super Heroes The Hulk Buster Smash 76031)? Not so great, eh? I know it is a LEGO set and hence it has limitations, but still, it is a far cry from the hulking, hulk’s ass kicking monster machine depicted in the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. Having said that, you can only imagine the excitement in me when I first lay eyes on Raymond Chow AKA Raychow’s custom LEGO Hulkbuster UCS. I was totally blown away by this true hulking Hulkbuster and obviously, many LEGO and Marvel fans do too. How so? Continue reading This LEGO Hulkbuster UCS Surely Deserves The 10K Votes It Has Gotten
There’s no lacking of MOCs that revolves around avid creators’ favorite cars, but one that’s designed to showcase the car catching some air? Well, that is something you don’t see everyday and as such, it is easy to see why it got picked up by our source rather enthusiastically (maybe ‘enthusiastically’ is an understatement here). As it turns out, I am on the same page as Stef Schrader because the custom Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 LEGO Speed Champions, which depicts all wheels up in the air at a section of the rally course (which is its natural ‘habitat’, really), had me at hello too. Also, Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 Evolution 2 Rally car in LEGO form is ridiculously cute. Absolutely gorgeous. Continue reading LEGO, Please Make This Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 Catching Air A Reality

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.

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?

We all know Tony Stark’s Iron Man Hulkbuster is going to appear in the second Avengers flick, The Age of Ultron. I am sure Iron Man’s fans, us included, are looking forward to it and being LEGO fans ourselves, we are also looking forward to a LEGO, preferably a UCS variant, of the Hulkbuster. There will be, definitely, but just that it probably won’t be UCS anyways. So your best bet is to vote up custom LEGO builder Jon San Pedro’s LEGO Iron Man Hulkbuster Project on LEGO Ideas. This project was submitted back in May 2013 (when it was still known as Cuusoo) and have since received over 7,000 supporters. However, it needs 10,000 votes to be considered by the Danish toy maker as an official set. That said, it has 92 days left on the calendar, which means if all of us fans want to see this beauty getting a shot as an official LEGO set, we all have to put in our votes.
