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
There is always a reason for sales and May 4th, being the designated Star Wars Day (you know, ‘may (the month May) the Force (4th) be with you?), is no exception and while every other businesses are jumping into the bandwagon, we are particularly interested in what LEGO has to offer and I am sure you are too. So, here goes. LEGO is celebrating Star Wars Day with exclusive LEGO Star Wars offers, for a limited time, and along with discounted stickers, folks who made purchase of $50 or more LEGO Star Wars items will get a free polybag set of R2-D2 Set – a departure from the usual minifigures issued as LEGO May 4th exclusives. Continue reading LEGO Celebrates Star Wars Day With Exclusive Offers And Free R2-D2 Set
If you have not heard, NASA Apollo Saturn V is set to launch again. Except that this time, this space-bound rocket ain’t heading to space and NASA will not be responsible for the launch; instead LEGO is the behind it and the iconic rocket will be launch by you, in the comfort of your own home, with this massive LEGO Ideas-born set called LEGO NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309). I know right? This is probably the most exciting news all of last week. I mean, seriously, a piece of mankind’s history, the glory of Americans’ achievement, that can be assembled by your own hands? Continue reading NASA Apollo Saturn V Launches Again, This Time As A Huge 3 Ft LEGO Set
With so many campers/camper trailers going around, you hardly find anyone wanting to build one, but that’s not to say nobody does it. In fact, occasionally you will find home-built gem like the Atomic Camper, but have you seen one a functional caravan built entirely out of LEGO bricks? Well, if you haven’t, now you have because the LEGO Brick Caravan, constructed by UK-based professional LEGO builder Bright Bricks (the same folks who was responsible for the awesome Rolls-Royce engine from a few years ago), you see here is the world’s first and set the record as the Largest Caravan Built with Interlocking Plastic Bricks back in 2015. Continue reading Watch A Functional Camper Built From LEGO Bricks Come To Live
Ridley Scott’s Aliens (20th Century Fox, 1979) was one of the movies that got me hooked to sci-fi and it is also one of the sci-fi movies that got me started in doodling crazy out-of-this-world stuff. Obviously, it was the weapons, equipment and vehicles that drew me to it, not so much of H.R. Giger’s alien design (though that was equally awesome). Having said that, nothing captured my imagination more than the UD-4L Cheyenne dropship and the M577 Armored Personnel Carrier – however impractical they were in space and on crazy alien terrains. Continue reading The Details That Goes Into This Aliens LEGO Technic M577 APC Is Insane!
I don’t know what else speaks louder than a self-explanatory post title that says what the item is all about. The LEGO Star Wars Celebration Exclusive Detention Block Rescue Set ($40) was unveiled last week, but unfortunately, one of the option for fans to secure this set has since expired. Our bad. I only noticed this from our source on April 4 and by the time we react to it, the lottery for you to have a shot in earning the chance to acquire the set at the Star Wars Celebration this week had lapsed on April 6. Again, our bad. I apologized for our incompetence. Continue reading LEGO Star Wars Celebration Exclusive Detention Block Rescue Set. ‘Nuff Said!
I am sure many folks have their hands in building the iconic Macintosh out of LEGO bricks, but have you seen one that’s that tiny and functional? Yes. You heard that right. Functional. Well, that’s exactly what Berlin-based programmer, by the name of Jannis Hermanns, did. But being a LEGO size, Jannis can’t possibly stuff a CRT into it, let alone squeezing the original processor and mainboard in it; instead, this wonderful miniature has a 2.7-inch e-paper display for the monitor and a raspberry PI Zero paired to a tiny WiFi module as its CPU to enable it to be functional. Continue reading Programmer Built A Miniature Working Macintosh Using LEGO Bricks
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
A contraption that feeds on paper and spits out paper plane is not new, but one that does the same using only LEGO elements, now that’s news. Granted that this particular work of art coming from Arrow Electronics is not news. It was posted on Arrow’s YouTube channel a little over a year ago, but hey, like I always say, if you haven’t heard of it, it is news. Am I right? Anywho, if you have seen it, I am sure you are beyond awe to be bother by its age, and if you hadn’t, well, enjoy this wonder LEGO creation conjured up by designer Arther Sacek.
