An intrepid designer built Route 1 from the original Pokemon games (possibly from Gold/Silver, not Red/Blue). I like the various touches of trainers, and “wild” Pokemon that appear throughout the level. Pokemon was something of a revolution back in the day. I remember my first time I beat the Elite Four. I was so nervous … Continued
Imgur user xadrian built his own LEGO Food Truck. I gotta say, the thing looks ace. There’s plenty of attention to detail on the inside. And actual flames on the side, not a baby decal. Actual. Flames. Doesn’t this guy look dangerous?
I’m sure you’ve seen versions of this before, but never matter, I’m posting the above video because I thought it was fun to watch, and it’s short, and you can spare the time. Trust me.
Well, more accurately, it’s a single sub-woofer, not an entire system. And, technically, it’s made of LEGO(R) compatible blocks. But hey, let’s stop with the specifics, it’s a speaker, it’s DIY, and it’s gotten me on an urge to make my own – properly. This LEGO speaker was built by reddit user /u/FanOfSport. It’s pretty … Continued
There’s something about watching videos in slow motion that is super fun. There’s something about watching a LEGO town get utterly destroyed pretty fun. Combine the two, and you have some ace footage above. Capture by the Slow Mo Guys, this showcases two separate attempts to have a LEGO plane “crash” into a town. Watch … Continued
Unfortunately, this LEGO Ideas project doesn’t look like it’ll gather enough votes to become a reality. It’s just too geeky I think. 300 pieces seems like quite alot for the simplicity of the design, although, I guess most of those pieces are the small 1×1 circles and connector pieces for the Technic beams. That being … Continued
Arthur Sacek has made the construction of paper airplanes one step simpler with his LEGO creation. Ok, Simpler might not be the correct word since this looks far more complicated then necessary to make a simple paper airplane, but it is damn cool. He made it for Arrow. I’m not sure what the site is … Continued
Honestly, I’m surprised that it took a LEGO Ideas to build this model. It’s such an iconic toy, and fits perfectly in the LEGO ecosystem. The best part is that since it’s made of LEGO bricks, you can super easily make your own maze board. It currently sits in the Approved stage, meaning it’s one step … Continued
Experimental aircraft are cool. They usually fall into one of two categories, useful prototypes of future airplanes and technology, or crazy strange aircraft that have no business defying gravity. The Grumman X-29 is one of the latter. It’s famous for having strange forward-swept wings. Something that looks like it’s flying backwards. It’s design meant it … Continued
19 Year old Joseph Zawada spent the last 2 years building a LEGO version of Hyrule Castle. It’s based on the Twilight Princess version of The Legend of Zelda. It’s pretty amazingly done, I like it, I wish I had the time and dedication to spend building stuff like this when I was younger and … Continued
