We have featured quite a number of LEGO Ideas (or LEGO Cuusoo up till 2014) submissions. Most of them caught our attention because they are themed around familiar pop culture. Beyond that, there are actually other noteworthy submissions. The Old Workhorse – Traction Engine by one LEGO Ideas member Bricked1980 is one of them. Continue reading The Old Workhorse Traction Engine Is Not Your Usual LEGO Ideas Submission
For some reasons, popular Japanese mecha anime Gundam and LEGO does not click (pun intended, btw), but despite so, it does not stop avid LEGO enthusiast by the LEGO Ideas handle demon1408 from trying to get this mechas from this iconic anime to the world of LEGO. This piece called LEGO Gundam Barbatos Lupin ASW-G-08 from the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans is one of the many projects that demon1408 have submitted to get the community nods of approval. And it is one of the seven demon1408 have submitted. Continue reading I Would Love To Build Me Self A LEGO Gundam Barbatos Lupus!

Photography is a widely enjoyed hobby and so is custom LEGO creations. While so, there are not many custom LEGO creations that are photography-related. At least, not that we have come across that is worthy of mention. This one here however, from Taiwan-based photographer Helen Sham, is different. Any photography buff will immediately recognize this creation. It is a Hasselblad 503CX Film Camera, created entirely out of LEGO. Continue reading With Your Help, This LEGO Hasselblad 503CX Could Become A Real LEGO Set
Well, you have heard the exciting news late last year and now, we have the official words and images of the LEGO Idea TRON Legacy Light Cycle Set, originally created by BrickBros UK as a LEGO Ideas submission. And boy, is this set a beauty! No noticeable changes have been made since we last saw the set. The only ‘major’ change we noted is the naming, in which the words “Light Cycle” seems to have been dropped in favor of just “TRON Legacy.” But despite so, rest assure that you are getting the iconic, futuristic bikes as dreamed up by BrickBros UK. Continue reading LEGO Ideas TRON Legacy Set Has Not One But Two Light Cycles
What you see here is yet another LEGO Ideas success story. This one here is by one Jake Sadovich (AKA JakeSadovich77) of Idaho called, well, Ship in a Bottle. Originally submitted to LEGO Ideas back in late 2016, it had pulled in 10,000 votes to qualified it for a review by the LEGO Ideas team to have a shot at making it as an official set. And official set it is now and it will be hitting the shelves starting February 01, 2018 with a $69.99 sticker. Continue reading Jake Sadovich’s LEGO Ideas Ship in A Bottle Becomes An Official Set
Good news, fans of TRON, specifically Disney’s reboot, the TRON Legacy because, BrickBros UK’s LEGO Ideas submission, TRON Legacy Light Cycle, has been approved as one of the next LEGO Ideas sets. Wise choice, LEGO Ideas team! For the record, I am not huge fan of TRON Legacy, but I can’t deny that Light Cycle has captured my imagination, regardless how impractical it is. It is just about the coolest fictional motorcycle ever, apart from Akira’s. Continue reading TRON Legacy By BrickBros UK Has Been Approved By LEGO Ideas Team
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. Announced on May 31 is the LEGO Ideas The Old Fishing Store (21310), a MOC submitted by the Netherlands-based LEGO Ideas member Robert Bontenbal (RobenAnne), is a massive set coming in at a grand 2,049 pieces! Continue reading With Over 2,000 Pieces, The Old Fishing Store Is The Biggest LEGO Ideas Set
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!
