A Taiwanese couple told HAO Design that they have a real love for LEGO, and the interior designers ran with it—transforming their entire 1,300-square-foot apartment into a playset you can actually live in.

The design, as you’ll see in the pics below, focuses around a raised lounge that features a ball pit in the center. LEGO-style bricks pop up everywhere–from the steps leading into the kitchen to the nightstand in the couple’s bedroom. They even have some no-so-mini minifigs scattered about.

The second I saw this Cthulhu Space Hopper, I wanted it. Like, WANTED. Talk about a blast from the past mixed with some serious awesome.

Yes, a genius combined a hopper with a Cthulhu plush and now you can bounce around the house on an Elder God. How is this not the best thing ever?

LEGO Ideas member Masman8675 has proposed a BTTF 1:1 Scale Hoverboard Model over at LEGO Ideas and it needs your votes to happen:

I have tried to create an extremely accurate LEGO version of the hoverboard used in the BTTF movies. It’s to the exact specifications of the prop used in the films: 71 centimeters/28 inches long, 20 centimeters/8 inches wide, and 3 centimeters/1 inch thick. In LEGO, that translates to: 90 studs long, 25 studs wide, and 3 bricks thick. It would be more accurate at 2 and 2/3, but that would look less accurate, and could possibly compromise the structural integrity.

This set would come with: The Hoverboard Model of course, and two minifigures: Doctor Emmet Brown in his 2015 attire, and Marty McFly in his 2015 clothes as well. The whole set is made up of 3,680 pieces: the full-sized Hoverboard model – 3,663 pieces, the minifigures with a stand and a minifigure scale hoverboard – 18 pieces.

Sounds good to me.

Characters in Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld recently got the LEGO treatment thanks to Eero Okkonen, who started the build shortly after Pratchett’s death.

It’s a wonderful tribute. Check out more pics below.

batman arkham

Some of you may argue that buying a 6′ 2″ Arkham Knight Batman foam replica statue would be a ridiculous and frivolous purchase. Not so! It has tons of uses:

-Coat rack
-Put it in the bathroom at night to scare your roommates
-Scare intruders
-Boyfriend Batman…?
-HOV lane…?

I mean, what CAN’T this statue do!

Not only that, NECA used the files from the game to create the statue, so it’s super accurate. There’s no info on pricing thus far, but it’s worth it at any cost as far as I’m concerned. Look for it to arrive sometime next March.

The Millennium Falcon, as we all know, is the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. But what if Solo decided to ditch the smuggling racket and put his ship’s reputation on the line? What if Solo actually started racing professionally? Hey, the Falcon would look great all decked out in racing badges and colors.

Joe Gan created his own version of a racing Falcon using items from a Lego Technic Grand Prix Racer set. As you can see from the end result, the Falcon was born to be a space racer.

Takara has followed up on their weird collection of original Star Wars die-cast cars with equally weird (but cute) 3-inch Star Wars: The Force Awakens versions.

Cute, collectible, affordable and Star Wars? Sold.

life size alien egg

Great, another mouth to feed. Goddammit, I told you to clean your room.

Transform any room into a deadly Alien breeding ground with this Life-Size Xenomorph Egg – complete with its own eerie lighting and life-size facehugger! As seen in the 1986 horror classic Aliens, this full-sized replica stands almost 36-inches tall, and articulated flaps with a wire armature allow you to actually open the top folds of the egg. The included full-size facehugger has a bendable tail, so you can pose it anywhere… waiting to drop on unsuspecting prey from overhead, or simply lurking inside the egg! The Life-Size Xenomorph Egg is made of detailed, hand-painted foam, and stands on its own. A switch activates the LED lights inside the base to create a menacing, otherworldly glow effect. Requires 3x “AAA” batteries, not included.

LEGO builders can create wonders on their own, but collaborations can be even more spectacular. That’s what LEGO builders Paul Trach and Markus Aspacher did for their latest project: a giant LEGO display that featured scenes from all four of the Jurassic Park films.

Despite the problems associated with working on a collaborative project while living nearly 400 miles apart (Markus lives in Austria; Paul lives in Germany), the results are astounding.

warpo krampus 3

While the myth of Krampus may be something parents used to make sure their kids behaved around Christmastime, Warpo wants to give this misunderstood monster an image makeover with their “Don’t Cuddle The Krampus” Kickstarter.

With Legends of Cthulhu, WARPO took you back to the late 1970s with the first retro action figures based on the world of H.P. Lovecraft. This time, WARPO is turning back the clock to 1986, the era of great monsters and gross-out toys, with Don’t Cuddle the Krampus, the first retro collectible toy line based on the myth of Krampus.

Acting as a toy company in the 1980s looking for the next great monster property, we felt that Krampus was the perfect folk lore to receive the Warpo treatment! We’ve taken a unique approach to this mythic character positioning him as a scary, but also totally misunderstood monster. Our Krampus isn’t out to blindly terrorize children, he has a job to do: Scare the naughty kids straight! It’s a dirty job but somebody’s got to do it! Thus… Don’t Cuddle the Krampus was born!
