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. 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!

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

If you have not heard, NASA Apollo Saturn V is set to launch again.

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!
