doctor who lego set

We said the official unveiling would be hot on the heels of this teaser for LEGO’s Official TARDIS Set, and that has turned out to be the case.

This LEGO Ideas 21304 Doctor Who set is based on Andrew Clark’s Doctor Who And Companions set. It includes a LEGO TARDIS, two Daleks, and four minifigures; the Eleventh Doctor, the Twelfth Doctor, Clara Oswald, and a Weeping Angel.

DC has unveiled the world’s largest LEGO Batmobile for their upcoming tour The Art of the Brick: DC Comics, and it’s the work of artist Nathan Sawaya. The amount of work that went into this project is just mind-blowing.

In collaboration with artist Jim Lee, who sketched the vehicle concept during a SDCC panel, Sawaya spent endless hours and nearly half a million bricks to complete the project. Aside from the sheer scale of the Batmobile, its streamlined profile makes it even more impressive. Speaking with Comic Book Resources, Sawaya explains:

“This became my life. This was a full time job. I dreamt about the Batmobile, I thought about it every time I had a chance to think. It was non-stop. It’s just those tiny pieces, [you have to chase it down], one by one, one by one. You do get to a point that if you miss something, you can see it. You can see it in the pattern that maybe it’s not working and you have to go back and fix it.”

The LEGO Batmobile will be the main attraction when The Art of the Brick: DC Comics exhibition kicks off at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia on November 20.

After the break, check out Jim Lee’s sketch and an additional image of the LEGO Batmobile.

LEGO builder Ivan Angeli has put his love for D&D’s Forgotten Realms setting to good use with this incredible build of Suldanessellar. This beauty took four months of intense building to complete and two days to set up. It incorporates more than 1000 minifigs!

If you’re wondering about the scale, Angeli says the White Tower alone is roughly three meters high.

Nicola Pavan of Pavan Wood Works has taken instrument making to a whole new nerdy level by utilizing LEGO in the construction of an electric guitar.

Pavan assembled the guitar over a six day period and pointed out that the hardest part was acquiring the necessary pieces. The whole thing is held together with a bit of glue and screws (even purists will probably give him a pass in this case) and you can see it in action in the video after the jump.

Making a LEGO version of that hit Hollywood trailer just got easier thanks to these phonetic Minifig heads.

Twelve heads cover the different mouth shapes made when talking, so all you need to do is change out the heads while you’re animating. Plus, worked with professional animators to get the heads just right.

The bottom line is that this is a great solution that will save you all kinds of time and money in post production.

Gamer and LEGO builder Nick “Nick Brick” Jensen has created an impressive, life-size replica of the Halo 5: Guardians MA5D Assault Rifle using a whopping 3,250 bricks. The massive weapon includes all the bells and whistles from the game like a BR sight, DMR scope, Suppressor, and an Energy bayonet. Measuring 33-inches, the LEGO rifle weighs 5.5 pounds and even has a squeezable trigger.

Jensen’s Halo 5 gun will be on display during BrickCon 2015 next month in Seattle if you want to check it out in person. In the meantime, more awesome images and a video are available after the break.

Michal Kazmierczak, the man behind the massive Gates of Erebor build we featured previously has updated his work with an interior and it’s frickin’ insane.

Standing 7-feet tall, 5 1/2 feet deep, and 6-feet wide, this build used 120,000 bricks and weighs approximately 286 pounds. He’s even thinking about finding a professional cameraman to make a movie using this as a set.

Jim McDonough is a fisherman and naval history buff. He also appears to be a Lego master.

McDonough spent the last three years building this incredibly massive replica of the USS Missouri using LEGO bricks. Aside from the giant 1:40 scale of this WWII vessel, his attention to detail is like none other.

On McDonough’s MOCpages he writes:

“At last its just about finished a few pieces and rigging but until i have a better place to display it, it will have to do. nearly 3 years building this one, 10,000s of parts, as for size it now stands 4ft 6 inches high. 3ft wide and a massive 24ft 3 inches long, not counted the studs LOL. The stern crane is motorized, and the bridge has lights as you have seen in my other updates. it was a struggle to get the turrets to sit with the weight of them but bricks on their side worked well in the end, this is the ww2 version with as many guns as it had at the wars end, big thanks to Raymond Drum who gave me the idea to build this and his vast knowledge has been most helpful as has all your comments and advice in the past, Also Michael K who,s missouri was very hepful to building this one.”

McDonough’s superior detailing is a remarkable feat and can be seen in his other massive builds that include a 14′ Japanese destroyer, 10′ Japanese military transport, and a Star Wars X-wing fighter. They are made even more impressive when you learn that he doesn’t use glue in any of his builds.

“I don’t use glue and everything can be taken apart. If you go to Legoland it’s all glued together, which to me is cheating because anyone can glue stuff together.”

McDonough is planning to start building a giant LEGO Saratoga (CV-3) in the near future. In the meantime, check out more detailed images of this impressive brick ship after the break.
