Solo: A Star Wars Story LEGO Kessel Run Millennium Falcon Available Now

The LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon is one of the much loved set in the LEGO Star Wars collection (especially the ridiculously pricey UCS edition), but if the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story (Walt Disney Pictures, 2018) does indeed make much of dent in the box office, then perhaps, the star space vehicle of the flick may have a place in the LEGO Star Wars cult altar too. Just maybe. Whatever the case maybe, you will want to secure yourself a set (or several, if you have extremely deep pockets) just in case this thing becomes as big as its forebear.

LEGO “Rumba” Is Like Roomba For Sweeping LEGO Pieces

LEGO is fun, but the pieces can be pain to your feet if you leave them lying around as would any good LEGO builders. The pain can be so excruciating that you’d remember to clean up after any LEGO build, but for one very talented LEGO enthusiast, he (or was it a she???) decided that it is better leave it to LEGO to clean up its own shit. How? With this brilliant LEGO MOC called “LEGO Rumba.” If you think LEGO Rumba sounds like Roomba, the robotic vacuum cleaner that started it all, well, it kind of is. Except that it doesn’t look like one (it isn’t disc shape is what I mean) and it isn’t vacuum cleaner. It has only one purpose and that is to “sweep” up LEGO pieces.

Arduino LEGO-like Bricks Could Give MINDSTORMS A Run For Their Money

Up till now, the alternative to LEGO’s pricey MINDSTORMS is Arduino/Raspberry Pi, but if you have tried that, you will understand that compatibility is an issue. This result in you needing to fabricate custom cases for the board and that’s not to mention eye-taxing coding process. But hey, if you want more flexibility and not spend too much, that’s how it is. Well, not if Leguino can help it. While the name Leguino may sounds like some sort of tasty pasta, it is not; it is the result of the holy matrimony between LEGO and Arduino (or Raspberry Pi).

LEGO Ideas TRON Legacy Set Has Not One But Two Light Cycles

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

This LEGO Technic MOC Tesla Model S Should Be Made As An Official Set

What you see here is a LEGO Technic MOC of the 2016 Tesla Model S. I know right. Finally! Finally someone decided to turn this modern day icon into a LEGO Technic version and it its absolutely cool! What makes this even more rad is, the details that went into it and also, remote control. Yup. This LEGO-lized Tesla Model S actually rolls. Even cooler, it is controlled via a smartphone. I mean, seriously, how cool is that. Very. And that’s coming from a not-a-huge-fan. Continue reading This LEGO Technic MOC Tesla Model S Should Be Made As An Official Set

Toyota Unveiled A Life-size 500,000 Bricks LEGO Camry

Here’s another real-life car that have gotten the LEGO treatment. If you haven’t already notice, that’s a Toyota Camry right there. But why Camry? We have no clue why Camry was chosen among the so many models the Japanese automaker has in its lineup. A promotion of this rather popular model in Australia, I supposed. However, we know that this Life-size LEGO Toyota Camry was created for the Brickman Awesome exhibition and it was designed by Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught, who is one of the only 14 LEGO certified professional in the world. Continue reading Toyota Unveiled A Life-size 500,000 Bricks LEGO Camry

This Is David, The Teen Who Built His Own Prosthetic Arm With LEGO

This is David Aguilar. David is a regular 18-year-old form Andorra who is NOT a LEGO certified professional and more importantly, unlike most people, he was born with just one fully-formed, functional arm. Missing a fully-formed arm and his passion for LEGO drove David to dream about having LEGO as part of his body. He eventually did, at the age of nine, when he built a prosthetic arm out LEGO pieces. But, as you would have imagined, that didn’t last. Continue reading This Is David, The Teen Who Built His Own Prosthetic Arm With LEGO

I Want This LEGO Arcade Of The Star Wars Pod Racing So Very Badly!

Most loyal Star Wars didn’t think Episode I, The Phantom Menace lived up to the franchise’s name, but if there was one thing good and memorable about the film, it would be the Pod racing scenes. It must be so, why else would there be a video game on it, right? I am not going to lie. I am a fan of the Pod racing scene and now even more so because of one dude: Alexis Dos Santos. You see, Alexis Dos Santos, AKA TKEL Creations, has recreated the iconic Pod racing scene with LEGO and mind you, he didn’t just cobble together a diorama of the scene; he recreated the scene as an interactive LEGO which he can play like a video game. Now, that’s super cool! Continue reading I Want This LEGO Arcade Of The Star Wars Pod Racing So Very Badly!

Guy Built A Posable LEGO Mario Figure, Teaches You How To Built One Too

Considering how big the name Mario is, it is hard to imagine there isn’t an official LEGO Mario figure. I mean, a huge, posable one, not the minifig scale kind. If you have been thinking the same, well, fret no more because, maker of random stuff (but mostly LEGO, really), hachiroku24 has built a posable figure of the world’s famous princess-saving plumber. Not only did he did that, but he is also kind enough to guide whoever are interested in building one themselves. Continue reading Guy Built A Posable LEGO Mario Figure, Teaches You How To Built One Too

Someone Turned A LEGO Technic Tow Truck Into A Working Snowblower!

Like iPhone, LEGO is pretty much capable of many things and apparently, it now includes blowing snow. Yup. I didn’t think that is possible either, but truth be told, it can, albeit a little slower than one may have hoped. A YouTube channel that deals in all thing LEGO, specifically Technic sets, known as The Brick Wall, has created an impressive Snowblower mod. The Brick Wall did not cobbled together this impressive, fully functionally snowblower from scratch though; he (or was it a she?) took a LEGO Technic 6×6 All-Terrain Tow Truck, designated 42070, as a base and weaved his (or her?) magic on it to result in a working snowblower.
