LEGO fan Markus dreamed of building a large-scale Star Wars diorama, and now that goal has been achieved.

Instead of building something like Hoth (which has been done numerous times in the past), Markus chose to build a diorama of the Battle of Rhen Var from Star Wars: Battlefront. He worked on the project for 10 months, and the final diorama features an incredible 250,000 bricks! Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

I honestly never thought about the possibility of a LEGO set based on The Iron Giant, but now I’m wondering why it hasn’t happened already. Fortunately, LEGO enthusiast Brett Cuviello is hoping to remedy the situation with his 2000+ piece Ideas project.

Within this project, there would be 5 main characters: The Iron Giant with changeable eyes and weaponry to depict his evil state from the movie, Hogarth Hughes with the alien bolt he finds at the end of the film, Annie Hughes and a coffee pot, Kent Mansley and a fedora, and Dean McCoppin with a coffee cup. The entire build consists of approximately 2,023 pieces, including the Giant, minifigures, and accessories. The Giant’s head rotates and tilts, and his arms, legs, wrists, hips, and ankles are all articulated to both accommodate his size and weight, and allow him to replicate classic poses from the movie.

As you know, LEGO Ideas projects need 10,000 supporters to be officially considered for production. The good news is, the project came out of the gate strong and looks to be well on it’s way to reaching that goal. But it still needs your support. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

If you ask me, a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers LEGO set is long overdue. With the new movie on the way, now would be a pretty good time to remedy that situation. It needs to be classic Rangers though, because the updated look of featured in the movie is just getting out of control.

Fortunately, LEGO Ideas user bruceywan is on the same wavelength because the set you see here is his proposal. He writes: [click to continue…]

Pyke, the Greyjoy castle on the Iron Islands of Westeros, is definitely on the dreary side, but LEGO artist Anu Pehrson‘s take on Pyke is remarkably beautiful. The creation even won an award at BrickCon earlier this month.

Needless to say, if I had to choose between visiting GRRM’s or Anu’s version of Pyke, I definitely go with the latter. Check out an additional pic below. [click to continue…]

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the recording and release of the Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine”, and the 48th anniversary of the film that was based on it. So it was the perfect time for LEGO to reveal their 550+ piece Yellow Submarine themed play set, complete with awesome minifigs of John, Paul, George and Ringo, as well as… y’know… that one thing. The thing. Whatever it’s called. It’s the culmination of a successful Lego Ideas project launched by Kevin Szeto last year.

Not only that, but they released a wonderfully-animated short to promote the set that’s just a joy to watch.

The set drops on November 1st, and will retail for $59.99. Check out some photos of the set along with the video below.

The LEGO Death Star set #75159 has 4016 pieces. This stop-motion video by YouTuber and LEGO builder Bart van Dijk shows you where all of those pieces go, but he also took the time to inject fun scenes from the films during the build.

This may be my new meditation method. Watch the video below. [click to continue…]
