Category Archives: LEGO

You’d probably expect a lot of the posts on a LEGO blog like The Brothers Brick to be about LEGO, and you’d be right. If you’re browsing this page, you might want to consider narrowing what you’re looking for by checking out categories like “Space” and “Castle.” We’re sure there’s something here that’ll fascinate and amaze you.

It’s a beautiful world out there in LEGO-land

We usually focus directly on LEGO models that people have created, but I always enjoy seeing fans use LEGO as the subject for their photography skills as well. Flickr user Young_Design has been creating a series of photographs which I love, featuring minifigs in gorgeous settings with great lighting. A good eye, a nice macro lens, and a little photoshopping skill can bring a viewer right into a minifig’s compelling world.

Architecture: Curving away from the norm

Traditional architecture with right angles and straight walls are commonplace in LEGO cities, since the brick naturally lends itself to that style. Less common are modern buildings with curving walls, but flickr user lisqr manages quite well here with the clever implementation of curved train tracks to set the structure for this wavy edifice.

Angular momentum makes quick work of space battles

This crazy cool Vic Viper version by Rancorbait is chock full of sweet angles and great color blocking. The builder deftly applies some of the new angular slopes LEGO’s been producing in recent years, and the result is spectacular. I particularly love the clever use of this piece down the front of each side, which is so well integrated that I almost didn’t notice it. Overall, this ship looks like a combination of something from Tron: Legacy and LEGO’s own classic Blacktron theme.

4×4 Greeble Transporter

In future, greebles will be highly prized and fought over. David Roberts has built a vehicle to safeguard all those precious bits.

I love the brightness of this rover. The white highlights really seem to jump out and I love the steering mechanism! Using the pistons makes for a really smooth turn. Very nicely done, David!

Vintage “Planet” Record Player

This last weekend in Seoul, the LEGO fan group Brickinside put on an incredible display! One creation in particular really jumped out at me. Built by Hayarobie, this vintage record player is full of awesome details. I especially love the transistors and other electronic wizardry going on there.
