This wont run Crysis

0

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

LEGO Paper Airplane Maker

0

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

LEGO Marble Maze

0

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

LEGO X-29

0

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

LEGO Hyrule Castle

0

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

LEGO Lamp

0

Brian Slevin of Brickablocks has put together this nice set of directions to build your own spherical LEGO Lamp.  Wiring, bulb, Lamp Shade, and LEGO bricks not included of course. The Instructions (available for free in PDF form), call for just about 400 individual pieces of different size and type.  Color doesn’t matter, that’s up … Continued

Nanoblock Nikon

0

Nanoblock is sorta like LEGO, except smaller.  And, it’s not LEGO, and it’s Japanese.  It’s smaller pieces, hence the name, that allow more detailed models to be made.  It looks cool, but I don’t think they will have any real dangerous impact on LEGO.  However, this small model is really nano, because it’s made up … Continued

LEGO Trains

0

Youtube user bananenbuurman, has an impressive collection of LEGO trains.  I’m particularily fond of the First Person view of this track that goes through an underwater tunnel.  It’s pretty cool because of the scale, everything seems faster then it is, (it could be speed up, but it doesn’t need to be).  I watched the whole thing, … Continued

LEGO Vatican

0

Father Bob Simon from Pennsylvania spent a couple of years building this 14 foot long scale model of The Vatican.  It consists of about half a million individual bricks.  St. Peter’s Square consists of 44,000 individual 1×1 round flat tiles.  Let me repeat that, 44 thousand tiles.  Just on the floor.  That’s insane. Here he’s … Continued

The LEGO Bricasso

0

Jason Alleman at JK Brickworks had an idea.  He wanted to make a LEGO contraption that would make LEGO mosaics of images.  Over the course of 22 minutes spread out over 5 videos, he goes over each step of the process.  Solving each individual problem one part at a time.  It’s pretty interesting, and pretty … Continued
