The new adventure comedy series will debut this summer on Disney XD and is set between Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back and
Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The show is supposed to include new heroes and villains and familiar Star Wars characters. If I had to guess, it’s canon, but no official word yet.

Gamer and LEGO enthusiast Mike Schropp has been building LEGO computers in micro and mini form for a while now, but he’s outdone himself with this version. And if you pay nicely, he’ll build one for you too.

Made from 2200 LEGO bricks, this custom case is made with both stability and performance in mind – and every component can be easily swapped out and upgraded.

Currently, it’s an absolute beast that’ capable of playing pretty much every game on the market with maxed out settings at 1920×1080, 2560×1440 and even 3840×2160 (4K) resolution.

Get a load of this! A group of LEGO enthusiasts in Taiwan assembled this phenomenal recreation of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier as seen in the Avengers films.

Measuring 140cm x 80cm and using approximately 15,000 bricks, it’s over twice the size and uses five times as many bricks as LEGO’s own officially-licensed Helicarrier set from 2015.

Formosa LEGO club members ZiO Chao and his friends Dada, Kimura, Kuan-Wei, Stephanie, Tiger and Will spent a month and a half putting this beast together, using only stills of the Helicarrier from 2012’s The Avengers as reference.

Batman and LEGO are two great tastes that taste great together. And now an Australian LEGO fan has recreated Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum entirely out of LEGO bricks.

Built from approximately 18,000 bricks, Dayton (aka Forgotten Days on Flickr) spent years designing this masterpiece and had to specially order bricks in. It took three months to finish construction in time for Brickvention, an Australian LEGO convention.

The attention to detail in this recreation is magnificent, and you can check it out in photos, as well as a walkthrough video, below.

Professional LEGO builder Ryan McNaught has recreated the Titanic’s final moments in an intricate build that required around 120,000 bricks and over 250 hours of free time with the help of fellow builders Mitchell Kruik and Clay Mellington.

The heavily detailed model shows the ship at the moment its structure buckled under its own weight, and comes complete with severed decks, working lights, wreckage debris and panicked passengers.

The largest official LEGO AT-AT kit clocks in at around 1000 pieces, but that simply wasn’t challenging enough for the team at BrickVault.

Their build is based on an original custom model by Peter Brookdale and took over 6,000 LEGO bricks and 26 hours to assemble. Luckily, that’s been timelapsed into 13 minutes, so you can watch it without sacrificing a day of your life.
