LEGO titanic

While the real ship may have sunk, this LEGO Ideas version of the Titanic has received the 10k votes needed for official review.

Three different scale options were proposed, with the smallest coming in at 750 pieces, the medium version at 1250 pieces and the largest at a whopping 4000 pieces and approx. four feet in length.

The design was rendered using the Lego-specific CAD program MLCAD because, as user Ssorg notes:

“I don’t have all the pieces to build it, and frankly some brick types used here in these colors are not available at all (not manufactured by LEGO so far).”

Odds are that one of the smaller versions would actually make it to production, but the bonus feature for the 750 piece model is that it splits in half for “authentic sinking action”. Eh…

Lego builder Michal Kazmierczak has recreated the dwarf fortress Erebor from 55,000 Lego bricks. It took him seven months to build the 5-foot-tall model. It’s not just the outside, but the inside that he’s also faithfully recreated with Lego bricks, even adding in some minifigs.

He notes on Eurobricks that each dwarf statue weighs over 13 pounds and that it’s bigger than the official Death Star set. When you see the picture of him standing next to his project, that’s very easy to believe.

Probably not, but this is so great.

Everyone’s favorite sassy senior citizens are back in action thanks to this LEGO super fan! Sam Hatmaker recreated The Golden Girls and their memorable Miami home with superb accuracy. There’s even extra characters included for some fan favorite episodes.

“This is a recreation of the Golden Girls House used in filming the popular 1980’s show that is still watched daily around the world. It is the Foyer, Living Room, and Kitchen built like a TV set, with one wall removed and a full view into the space. It comes with 5 minifigures including Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, Blanche, and Stanley. It has been meticulously recreated to have opening cupboards and fridge in the kitchen, Wicker Sofa and Chairs, a hallway backdrop, a storage closet in the kitchen, and an outdoor area with potted plants and a hose.

I have recreated many classic scenes from the show, including a visit from Burt Reynolds, Rose shooting Blanche’s Vase, Dorothy Playing “Grab That Dough” and Rose rescuing her Teddy Bear from a mean little girl.”

Sam submitted his creation to LEGO Ideas in hopes of earning the 10,000 necessary for official review. Check out close-ups of the awesome set after the break.

Korean Lego enthusiast Hayarobi built this working Lego turntable for the 2014 Seoul Brick Pop Art Exhibition. It is called “The Planet” and was made of 2,405 bricks. The whole thing is powered by a Lego Power Functions Battery Box and uses an M-Motor. The only non-Lego part is the Audio Technica phono cartridge and there is even a matching tube amp and cases for the speakers.

This is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious LEGO stop-motion videos of all time.

Paul Hollingsworth of Digital Wizard Studios and his daughter Haley used over $100,000 in LEGO pieces to re-create all the best scenes from Jurassic Park in one epic stop-motion video. With the help of their friends, they built sets and characters that really come to life with the use of motion control camera rigs and after effects compositing.

Talk about a cool Dad and daughter project! Go watch the video right now.

When Marco den Besten set out to make a Lego castle, he wasn’t messing around. He calls it Armortug and it took 3-4 months to finish. There are multiple towers and walls, hidden chambers, a seaport, and even a marketplace. Also, look closely and you’ll see a familiar little blue box that has found its way into the scene.
