Late last month, Disney and LEGO unveiled a slew of LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets in celebration of Force Friday. Before we move on, we have to be clear that Force Friday is not the same as the fans-proclaimed May the Fourth. Think of Force Friday as the Father/Mother’s Day equivalent, i.e. officially sanctioned Star Wars day. But that’s not important. The important thing is, fans will have more reasons to part with their hard-earned money – if the recently revealed enormous LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon haven’t already leave your piggy bank high and dry. Continue reading Good News, LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi Sets Are Available Now!

Continue reading This Is The New LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon, The Biggest LEGO Set Yet
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!
There are countless number of insanely awesome LEGO builds and therefore, it is hard to say who is better. However, as far as amateur and the pop icon Aliens goes, artist Blair Archer could easily rank among the top, if not the best. Archer’s creation, a custom 1/3th scale LEGO Alien Xenomorph Bust is loaded with so much details that I can assure you that it is guarantee to blow your mind even if you are non-fan of the horrifying, acid spitting extra-terrestrial life form. No, seriously. This work of art here is beyond awesome. Just look at it. It is almost as if it was alive even though you know they are made out entirely from LEGO elements. Continue reading This Super Detailed LEGO Alien Xenomorph Bust Will Blow Your Mind!
At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed that concluded earlier this month, McLaren had quite a bit to show off. Among the fleet, there was something particularly intriguing. Something a little more jagged than the British automaker’s usual offerings. It was a full-size LEGO McLaren based on the all-new beastly 720S. Yes. It was a 1:1 LEGO replica of the 720S. Obviously, what McLaren pulled off isn’t new. We have seen a number of full-size automobile replica in the past, including the likes of Ford Explorer, LEGO Batman Movie Batmobile, and even a fully-functional camper – just to name a few. But McLaren 280,000+ pieces example was a tad different. Continue reading Full-size LEGO McLaren 720S Finished By Fans At Goodwood Festival of Speed
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.

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!

LEGO bricks can build wonders, including an assortment of aircrafts, but have you ever thought about this: are those aircrafts aerodynamically sounds for them to take to the skies? I bet you didn’t think much about it. Well, me neither, but one dude by the name of Adam Woodworth, AKA ajw61185 (the same person behind the Nerf ball-shooting RC A-10), not only pondered about this lesser asked question, but took it upon himself to put it to the test. But there’s a twist here: Woodworth did not make bricks fly; instead, he build a large replica of his favorite childhood LEGO airplane set called Solo Trainer. Continue reading A Giant LEGO Flying RC Aircraft Is Not Quite LEGO, But Awesome Nonetheless
