Jonathan Robson’s custom life-sized LEGO helmet reads comic books so you don’t have to. A USB drive pops into the back of the helmet that plays the audio content from comic books. You can see the full feature on Engadget.
Thanks for the tip [Dablackcat]!
Théo (Titolian) has built a fantastic little robot. The fishing poles for legs add a great alien bug feel to this creation. He’s also named it in Morse code, which I’ve long forgotten.
It’s true, the Jawas drive a hard bargain.

Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner were my favorite Looney Tunes as a kid, and I was totally excited when I saw this superb rendition this morning. You have to admire the tenacity of a coyote that fails every time, in every scheme, to try and catch this roadrunner. My experience with real roadrunners is that they’re just as confident without the coyote around, too.
Annie Dimet completely captures the essence of the character with this build. It’s appropriately cartoonish and maintains enough of the LEGO look. It’s fantastic. Bravo, Annie!
Thanks for the heads up, Tommy!
Here’s one for those that are Christian and those that just like good LEGO dioramas. By Chris Wunz (wunztwice). The olive tree is pretty much holy by nature.
I’ll bet this creation by Neverroads isn’t something you see everyday. Here’s the setup.
Underwater LEGO dioramas present some unique challenges. For example, how do you illustrate the complex ecosystem present in the water column? Captain Spaulding does this by suspending a variety of lifeforms above the seafloor, but that’s hardly the most notable thing about this creation, built for a contest on the French Brick Pirate forum.
The enormous statue dominates the scene with his heart of gold, while a microscale Atlantean temple creates some forced perspective behind a lovely cuttlefish.
There are so many things I want to say about this, but mostly, I’m just in awe. This four-section creation by Rook just has so much gorgeous detail.
I’ll start with the obvious: the four parts interlock to create either a tower or fortress, and changes the dynamics for each mode. Then there’s the bone-tree, the “giant” chess set, and the detailing on the towers.
I can’t pick a favorite detail on this. Just take a look and see for yourself!
Thanks for the heads up, Bley Junkie!
We’re back with more custom LEGO auctions to help Japan! Those of you who were watching may have noticed that all of our auctions ended yesterday, without anything new being added. That’s because it turns out that eBay puts a limit of $5000 per month on new selling accounts, and we broke that number! I spent some time on the phone with eBay, and got them to raise our limit, so laissez les bon temps rouler! Here some of the new auctions:
Once again, here’s the link to all of the on-going auctions to help the Red Cross in their efforts to help the victims of the earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan and the Pacific Rim.
By now it’s clear that the Terran units from Starcraft 2 are easiest to make out of LEGO. Sven Junga adds the marine to list of the community’s brick-built Terran units including the Battlecruiser, Thor, Viking, Banshee, Medivac, Siege Tank and more.
It’s a good thing I can counter marines with my banelings!
This simple composition featuring some not-so-simple creations by Jack Marquez (Ewok in Disguise) captures the feel of a Beach Boys song: Corvette convertible, custom Harley-Davidson and a surfboard.
Check out all the pedals and valves on that Harley and the red rubber bands for racing stripes.
I’m consistently wowed by the geometric designs that Katie Walker fiddles with and frequently shares. It’s extra rewarding when she incorporates the results of her experiments into beautiful architecture like this grand staircase and mosaic floor.
