If you’ve seen the cartoon Samurai Jack, you’ll undoubtedly recognize Stephen Pakbaz’s (Apojove) creation of Jack vs Aku.
German LEGO Star Wars fan David Wagner wasn’t content just to build 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon and let it gather dust in his basement. He built an entire Death Star diorama full of classic details.
Oh, and it lights up! David incorporated LEDs throughout the diorama, including the Falcon’s cockpit and ramp, landing lights, and more.

What’s the first thing everyone says when they try Minecraft? “It’s like building with Lego!” And to me, Minecraft really is the perfect Lego-esque game. So, it was natural to combine two of my favorite things, which already seemed destined to be together. Some of you may have seen this at Brickcon 2011 back in October where I displayed it, but now it’s finally online just in time for the official game release date tomorrow!
Cars symbolize so much; we judge people on their taste in cars, we always have aspritions for bigger, sportier, faster cars…but I’m telling you. While I appreciate a lovely car myself, very very few of them make me smile like a 1950s Chevy.
So, kudos to you, Patrick. It’s just gorgeous.
As much as Lego is a worldwide hobby, it’s not easy to be aware of what people from other countries are building, especially if they are not active in the English-speaking communities that we often visit.

It’s rare to see a LEGO torii that has the correct proportions, but this one by Shannon Young looks like it would be perfect on a mountain path leading up to a Shinto shrine. It’s also quite nice in this LEGO scene featuring a ronin taking a final journey.
The LEGO Shop online is continuing free shipping for all orders over $99.00 through mid-December, ending December 12.
A fair proportion of the 2012 LEGO sets are also online now.
And don’t forget that you can pick up a free LEGO Star Wars ARF Trooper with the code 4TBB (US) or TBBO (CA).
UPDATE 1: The LEGO Shop team have informed us that the checkout system has experienced a problem recently while applying the promotional code, preventing the ARF Trooper from being added visibly to the the shopping cart at checkout. ARF Trooper supplies have not run out, and they are correctly being included in your orders.
Update 2: For those of you like me who noticed last night that the second of two Christmas vignettes was available for purchase at $10, this was also an inventory/website mistake. It will be available for free with orders over $99 during Black Friday weekend next week.
