The Lego Millennium Falcon is made up of over 1,200 pieces, so half the fun is in putting it together, but being finished is a huge accomplishment. Then you get to put it on your shelf and gaze at it in awe, unless you’re poor Michael.
His friends Joost Reijmers and Thomaas pull a dangerously daring prank and completely disassemble Michael’s Lego Millennium Falcon right after he’s finished the thing. They even put it back in individual bags inside the box.
Check out Michael’s reaction after the break…
Tired of your boring black or cream-colored keyboard? Yeah, me too. LEGO builder Jason Allemann came up with the coolest possible solution: a LEGO keyboard. It not only looks rad, it actually functions. He began with a generic keyboard and had to build a frame that put the keys in the exact right location over the sensor pad. It’s impressive, and one of the most fun parts is that it’s easy to replace keys to change up the design.
See how it was built in the video after the break.
Pacific Rim’s giant Jaegers were mesmerizing to watch. The most solid of the robots seemed to be Russia’s Cherno Alpha; she looks tough and fierce. LEGO builder Jason Corlett fell for the Jaeger and decided he needed to build a LEGO version. I support his choice completely.
He spent about 70 hours on the project and churned out an almost three foot tall, bricktastic replica. Though he didn’t count the pieces as he stacked and built, he estimates there are at least 5,000. I’m not sure how this version would stand up to a Kaiju attack, but I feel like it would look pretty awesome on a coffee table.

Lego Cuusoo has turned some fantastic nerdy properties like Back to the Future and Ghostbusters into our favorite toys, but Doctor Who has never been on that list. The reason came down to licensing rights which prohibited Lego from building anything Whovian…until now. An update to Lego’s project guidelines has given Doctor Who a thumbs up, so what are you waiting for? Break out those Lego bricks and start building that TARDIS!
Citizen Brick thoroughly enjoy walking that fine line that involves making “unofficial” custom LEGO tiles and minifigs that are inspired by popular TV shows and films. Their latest offering is a take on the characters from Breaking Bad–three minifigs that collectively form what they call “The Albuquerque Action Squad.”
The squad consists of Legal Defense Enthusiast, Drug Dealing Enthusiast and Law Enforcement Enthusiast. I think you can all guess who these figs are supposed to be.

Will Arnett gave a voice to Batman in The Lego Movie, and on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live he made hearing that school is closed due to snow even cooler. You could just read about cancellations on the internet or watch that endlessly scrolling bar on the bottom of your television screen, but hearing that you don’t have to go to school right from Batman? Now that’s cause for celebration!

Artist Dave Pollot has has a love for pop culture and thrift shopping, so he’s combined both of those and turned them into art.
Pollot picks up paintings from thrift shops and paints in pop culture references and then offers prints of those paintings for sale.
His paintings feature references from LEGO to Star Wars and have names like “Fall of the Empire”, “On A Bender II”, and “Intelligent Design”.
Hit the jump for a few examples.
