This Lego particle accelerator was built by Jason of JK Brickworks and it accelerates a particle that looks a lot like an orange Lego soccer ball to a speed of 12.5 KPH. Sure, that’s not quite what the fancy scientists are pulling off with their particle accelerators but it’s no small feat. According to Jason, he used a little math to figure out the ball’s speed:

The ring has a circumference of around 264 studs and at maximum speed the ball travels around it approximately once every 0.6 seconds. That works out to about 440 studs per second, which is the equivalent of just over 12.5 km/hr.

The mechanism that accelerates the ball is actually a pair of Lego wheels powered by a Power Functions M motor. The affect is great and the little video with minifig scientists is wonderful.

See the video and a close-up of the acceleration mechanism after the break.

lego mash-ups 3

If you have a pile of LEGO minifig parts in front of you, it’s only natural to mix them up and see what happens. Artist Alexandre Tissier came up with some perfect mash-ups for a Fiction Meets Fiction campaign for LEGO. He’s got Homer Simpson as Wolverine, Spider-Man as James Bond, Darth Vader as a geisha, and Batman in pajamas and holding a teddy bear. I feel compelled to make these designs a reality.

sleeping totoro plush

Totoro manages to be cute no matter what he’s doing – even if it’s sleeping with an open mouth and snoring. A new Dozing Totoro plush captures the furry creature while he’s snoozing and sawing some logs. It’s adorable but also a little weird. And the noise of the snoring in the video was enough to scare my cat.

rocket raccoon figure 1

Despite his rough and tough attitude, Rocket Raccoon is cute. His small stature contributes to his appeal and also means that the character was destined to become a life-size statue. NECA toys has come up with a slightly larger than life-size Rocket Raccoon figure that’s almost 3 feet tall. He’s hand-painted to match the on-screen version of the character, and the figure is made from foam rubber and latex. Whatever you do, don’t give him a weapon.

Pre-order now to receive your own pet Rocket Raccoon in March 2015.

lego wall 1

Italian convention Lucca Comics and Games took place recently, and a giant LEGO diorama of Westeros from Game of Thrones was among the exhibits. Redditor todayiderp shared photos of the build, and the star is the Wall.

It’s crafted from goodness knows how many white LEGO bricks and includes Castle Black and the lift that takes members of the Night’s Watch and their guests to the top of the Wall. There’s even a Tyrion minifig posed on top achieving his goal to “piss off the edge of the world.’

Check out more photos of LEGO Westeros after the break.

As we revealed over the weekend, LEGO is set to produce a Big Bang Theory set. Unfortunately, two of the sets that it was up against for approval were Doctor Who-themed. Don’t worry though! If you watched the announcement video through to the end  you would have learned those two sets aren’t dead yet. Lego Ideas team member Peter Espersen notes:

This review period featured two Doctor Who concepts, and the LEGO Review Board is evaluating them. We’ll let you know when we decide whether or not one will be produced as a LEGO set.

Yes! This seems to indicate that the licensing issues over Doctor Who have been worked out and that the Lego people are just trying to decide which set they should produce. Their current choices are a set called Doctor Who by GlenBricker or a set called Doctor Who and Companions by AndrewClark2, both of which look great. They should just make it easy on themselves and build both because you know every Whovian out there would be more than happy to own two sets.

big bang theory minifigures

Lego announced they will produce a set based on the The Big Bang Theory created by Alatariel and GlenBricker for Lego Ideas.

You may remember Alatariel as the creator of the Research Institute Set aka the Female Scientist set.

It’ll be interesting to see the fan reaction to this set considering TBBT seems to garner some pretty strong opinions on either side.
