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.

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.

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.

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.

LEGO and Star Wars come together perfectly in the new book LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes From a Big Galaxy.

Created by Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki using his son’s favorite toys, the book features painstaking recreations of classic movie moments and hilarious new takes on fan-favorite characters and themes. Informative captions give technical details for each scene, while anecdotes from Lehtimäki offer background insights to his creative process.

LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy is a breathtaking new look at a timeless icon that allows fans to see their favorite minifigures from the classic saga in an exciting new way.

DK Publishing was nice enough to send me a sample and I love it. It’s full of beautiful photography of LEGO Star Wars brick sets and minifigures in Star Wars movie moments with a little humor thrown in. Between the creations and the photos, it’s definitely something LEGO builders and Star Wars fans would love.

They also gave us some awesome pics to share:

A life-size LEGO TARDIS has materialized in Australia (Sydney’s Bondi Beach to be precise) as part of a promotional campaign for the country’s inaugural Doctor Who Festival. Apparently, Peter Capaldi and Billie Piper will be among those in attendance.

Let’s hope there are a lot of Aussie Doctor Who fans because they’ll need to sell a lot of tickets to offset the cost of all those bricks.

After numerous leaks, LEGO has finally taken the wraps off their Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters Set.

The 4,634 piece set features the two-story firehouse complete with living quarters, lab, fire pole, and a containment unit. They’re also including nine minifigures: Peter, Ray, Egon, Winston, Janine, Dana, and Louis plus Slimer, Zombie Driver, Library Ghost, Pink Ghost, and Blue Ghost.

It’s estimated to arrive in January for $350 at the LEGO shop. Not cheap, but this is going to be hard to resist even at that price.
