lego bot

At first, YouTube user Mahj’s LEGO castle looks simple. It appears to be a basic structure without too many details. However, there’s more than meets the eye. The inside of the castle is fitted with electronics that allow the castle to turn into a walking robot. What? This is so creative I can’t stand it.

See the walking castle in action in the video after the break.

custom lego 1

LEGO makes Marvel minifigs, but they aren’t good enough for builder autorazr. He wants to make the blocky versions of superheroes and villains as accurate as possible, and to that end he’s designed a ton of minifigs. His gallery features characters like Kraven the Hunter (pictured above), the Runaways, and Hobgoblin with different accessories and in various costumes – he’s already made more than 100 Marvel minifigs. I’m drooling.

lego helicarrier 1

The helicarrier from The Avengers is made to be built from LEGO bricks, and LEGO Ideas (formerly Cuusoo) user ysomt came up with a design that uses 22,694 of them. Isn’t it a thing of beauty? He reviewed stills from the film and did his best to make the helicarrier screen accurate and get the proportions just right. It measures 85.4 by 45.3 inches so you’d need to clear a big space to build and display it. If the project receives 10,000 votes, this beast of a helicarrier could become an actual product on store shelves.

Vote to make the LEGO helicarrier a reality at LEGO Ideas.

adventure time magic 1

If a product doesn’t exist for a certain franchise, fans often take matters into their own hands. Some of these fans are more dedicated than others, and Redditor The_Stoney_Badger’s pal is definitely in that group. He made an Adventure Time deck for Magic: The Gathering, and it rocks. Besides the tedious work involved in printing and attaching the images to cards, he also took the time to find characters that fit the cards’ descriptions perfectly.

The bizarre animated series has plenty of creatures and magic, so it’s a great fit for the card game. This needs to become an officially licensed thing.

See more photos of the custom cards after the break.

custom michonne barbie

Flickr’s Peewee Parker likes to make custom dolls and, as you can see, does some pretty kickass work. This custom Michonne looks like she’d take Barbie out in about two seconds.

She’d probably keep Ken as one of her “pets” while she was at it.

the minion chair

Etsy seller DesignsByMeganAlyss has a Minion kid chair just for you.

She offers them custom made to order and, because she personally upholsters each chair to your specs, she can make them look like your favorite minion.

If your kid likes Despicable Me, I’m pretty sure they’re gonna love this. I just wish she made them in adult sizes!

This monster was designed by a Russian guy using 3D modelling software. He and his buddies then used a Nissan Maxima for parts and made what looks like a giant, bloated Batmobile. I could totally see the Dark Knight saving Gotham behind the wheel of this during a blizzard.

lego downton abbey 1

Downton Abbey has been a bit too depressing lately. It could use some levity, and this LEGO interpretation of the estate is just the thing. Builder Eric Stevens created a brick copy of the gigantic castle and put together a cast of minifigs. After all, what is Downton Abbey with no occupants to gossip and cause trouble? He put thought into their oufits and tried to make them look as different from each other as possible.

Stevens built the replica for his girlfriend and spent hours looking up reference photos and ordering the right bricks for the job. The actual build only took him around four hours. This project makes me want Jane Austen LEGO sets.

Check out close ups of the minifigs and a video interviewing the builder after the break.

mlp cthulhu 1

Friendship may be magic but according to Bigshot Toyworks, “Friendship is Maddness.” The toy company has taken the look of My Little Pony and combined the characters with some Cthulhu touches like tentacles and big eyes. Little Maddie, pictured above, is just one of the characters they’re working on for a series of animation shorts and toys. The pony and monster combination works well, and I bet these creatures creep right off the shelves and into homes in a flash.

tumbler golf cart

You can now own this “one of a kind” custom made Batman Tumbler Golf Cart. Judging by the item description, it looks like it was built for the franchise and likely used on the Warner Bros. lot. I’m guessing by the film’s execs.

Either way, it’s custom built, road worthy, and made to mirror the Tumbler in almost every detail.

There are 4 days left on the auction and all you need is $17,500 to Buy It Now and have it for your very own. That’s chump change to most Billionaire Playboy superheroes.
