LEGO gaming builder ZaziNombies adds to his brick built arsenal of Overwatch weapons with defense hero Torbjörn’s level 2 turret and repair hammer. Smooth shaping on the red paneling throughout and gun barrels match the game’s aesthetic well. See an overview of ZaziNombies’s LEGO turret and hammer, as well as a discussion of the build process, in the video below.
Hyrulean creatures and tufts of grass will prove no match for Julius von Brunk’s cleverly-built LEGO version of Young Link from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Thee construction of the Deku Shield and Link’s facial expression are particularly good. A cute and instantly recognisable model.
Four years of building and gathering parts led to an incredible showroom of LEGO Ferrari models by Ryan Link. The build uses over 36,000 parts: 23,000 parts form the building with a 5,000-piece transporter; finally, eight Ferrari models (including the official Ferrari F40 set) adding another 8,000 parts.
The dealership interior is well lit by LEDs and built in exquisite detail, with excellent brick-built Ferrari lettering and graphics lining the walls. Of course, this is all to house and showcase the intricate custom built supercars.
Be sure to check out more photos of each of Ryan’s Ferrari models individually on Flickr.
One of my most played heroes in Overwatch is tank hero D.Va. I thought her mech was an interesting enough design to build, so I built it in late 2016 using the legendary B.Va skin and Stormbringer’s LEGO D.Va mech as inspiration. Today, I share a building guide for viewers to construct their own MEKA. View the parts list (299 in total), then follow the video below and call in your own Korean mobile exoskeleton.
We’re getting our first high-quality look at two LEGO sets from Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok. We don’t yet have information regarding price, part counts, or exact release dates of these sets, but we’ll be sure to bring you that info as soon as it’s available.

76088 Thor vs. Hulk: Arena Clash
The angelic Toa Hahli was always a popular LEGO Bionicle character. This fantastic revamp from Anthony Wilson is sure to give fans a nostalgic glow. I particularly like the use of sword and panel pieces in the creation of the wings, and the transformation of the original set’s six-shooter into an elegant bow.
If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 yet, this adorable LEGO Baby Groot by Markus Rollbühler should help get you hyped up for it. The use of ball joints as the eyes was a smart choice, making this version almost as cute as the original. And don’t miss the spot-on recreation of Rocket’s explosive device — very nicely done.
Marius Herrmann has built several excellent LEGO Titans from Titanfall 2, including Ion and Northstar, along with Ronin. Now, he shows some love for the campaign’s protagonist, the lovable Marauder Corps death machine that is BT-7274. BT’s lightweight frame was captured accurately using orange, white, and custom spraypainted military green bricks. His model is detailed down to an array of individual rockets ready to fire from the shoulder-mounted missile pods.

Builder FLAVIO continues his “Wiffy” series (years in the making) with one such robot fitted with twin rotors. His mech is full of brilliant parts usage, color blocking, and unique design choices; I don’t even know where to begin noting my favorite parts. What I can say is FLAVIO’s mech is one of the finest examples of mech building I’ve seen in a while.
KW_Vauban captured the Geonosian Petranaki Arena scene from Attack of the Clones rather well with LEGO bricks. The builder’s use of dark orange bricks on detailed and accurately constructed Geonosian architecture was a smart choice. In particular, I like the construction of the main gate with the CIS overlook above.
Dozens of Geonosians line the arena, while Battle Droids and Jedi fight below.

Eero Okkonen showcases his excellence in LEGO character building once again with his build of the goddess Palutena of the Kid Icarus and Super Smash Bros series. Eero first constructed Palutena back in 2015 but his new version is quite a beautiful improvement on a great build. The flow to her green hair and variety of gold embellishments are eye-catching.
Microscale architecture builder Rocco Buttliere has achieved a remarkable feat of LEGO engineering with his 40,000+ piece model of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California. Like the actual suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait, Rocco’s beautiful and highly detailed LEGO rendition crosses its 6 foot long central span suspended by a combination of red string, Technic bushings, LEGO flexible hoses, and non-LEGO metal wire.
Rocco’s LEGO model even includes the buildings and landscaping of the Presidio in Golden Gate Park.
