Someone Made A Baby Stroller Out Of LEGO Technic Elements

Here’s a LEGO MOC that’s a departure from the norm. It is a baby stroller, made entirely out of LEGO Technic elements – saved for the seat portion (which like it is of nylon, pulled from an actual stroller). It is worthy of a mention because, who would have thought of making a baby stroller out of LEGO elements? Probably no one except TKEL Creations, AKA Alexis Dos Santos.

What Started Out As A Smartphone Stand Turned Into A Mini LEGO Theater

It started out with the desire to make a smartphone stand out of LEGO bricks, but then US-based Japanese Twitter user jeunetleaf (@jeunetleaf) supposed smartphone stand evolved into a minifigure-size movie theater. Originally, the intention was to create a LEGO bricks-based stand for her smartphone when watching video. While at it, jeunetleaf thought it might be fun to make the stand look like a cinema. She then started to add details like walls with wall lights, stepped staging with seats, doorways, and even a projector with a projectionist behind it.

Well, pretty damn fast, isn’t it? The recently announced LEGO 75222 Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City is not due to hit the shelves until September 13, 2018 but already, the most prolific LEGO counterfeiter Lepin has already put a copycat version up on sale on AliExpress. If you haven’t heard, a South Korean man was recently charged in court for possession and selling of fake LEGO sets made by Lepin. LEGO had the help of South Korean police who raided the home of this fake LEGO dealer. I am not surprised that this raid happen in South Korea, given the country’s obsession with stamping out fake goods, including fake designer goods.

Here’s An Infographic From LEGO To Mark The 40 Years Of Minifigure

Woah… the world’s most iconic tiny figure, LEGO minifigure (AKA minifig) is officially 40 years old. But it is worthy to note that the big 4…0 is starting from the time where the minifig you knew today began.

Check Out This Incredible LEGO RC 1970 Porsche 917K Build By Sariel

Sariel, the person known for whipping incredibly detailed remote control custom LEGO vehicles is back and this time, he made a LEGO RC 1970 Porsche 917K and believe me, this creation easily blast original offerings from LEGO out of water for accuracy. I mean, LEGO Technic set like the Bugatti Chiron accurately recreated the form, but the Technic pieces just made them look a little too ’technical’. Too many crevices and openings here and there. Continue reading Check Out This Incredible LEGO RC 1970 Porsche 917K Build By Sariel

LEGO App-controlled Batmobile Is Now Available, But It Is Not For Everyone

If you are NOT a huge fan of Batman, but adore his rides, then this adorable LEGO 76112 App-controlled Batmobile may appeal to you. I am not totally sold, though because, it is a tad too cute for my liking. I mean, the look is OK, but TBH, I can’t look at it without conjuring the image of Ryu Nakanishi’s armored amphibious tank, the G-5 Mecha, from the iconic Gatchaman anime. It has the same chubby form, but instead of tracks, this cute Batmobile had fat wheels. Continue reading LEGO App-controlled Batmobile Is Now Available, But It Is Not For Everyone

It is the Cloud City. I am not going to lie, I was half expecting a Death Star kind of set with dollhouse-style play set and not just a level of Cloud City. Am I asking for too much? I think not. This place deserved to be the entire Cloud City. Continue reading Finally, Iconic Scenes From Empire Strikes Back Gets Its Own LEGO Set

This is custom LEGO Technic Railway System, an amazing Great Ball Contraption, created by LEGO enthusiast Akiyuki. It may not look like much, but it really is an amazing work of art. For starter, the trains’ movement are actually independent. Meaning each train is powered by its own motors with no microcomputers or electronic control devices involved. Secondly, while it may look rather sparse, this setup actually contains over 6,000 LEGO elements and it took more than 150 hours to build. Thirdly, it is, well, a Great Ball Contraption. Duh.
