Assist your Titan in the present and past with a LEGO Titanfall 2 Alternator

Titanfall 2 added several new weapons to its line-up of futuristic firearms, and my favorites are the multi-barreled weapons like the Alternator for their uniqueness.

An ancient instrument of war: LEGO exotic Khvostov rifle from Destiny

Although Destiny at this point is just over two years old, many players feel nostalgic for the first rifle your Guardian acquires in his or her adventure, the Khvostov 7G-02.

Watching your back with LEGO Ana’s Rifle from Overwatch

When Ana Amari was revealed as an addition to the Overwatch hero roster, I knew I wanted her rifle added to my LEGO arsenal.

Game on! LEGO D.Va’s Light Gun from Overwatch

I never would have guessed before playing Overwatch that I would build a pink gun for my LEGO arsenal.

I find building a pistol Continue reading →
