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 not much, but it’s home.

The whimsical residence of the Weasley’s known as the Burrow looks amazing in this build by Marcel V.. The warm colors and smooth landscape create an inviting atmosphere. If you enjoyed this creation, don’t miss out on Matija’s version of the Burrow that we blogged several years ago.

Crush the Rebel scum in a LEGO AT-AT

Alec Doede shows his skills with constructing screen-accurate Star Wars builds again with this Walker Assault scene on planet Sullust inspired by EA Dice’s Star Wars Battlefront. The highlight and most prominent feature of the LEGO diorama is of course the AT-AT, with incredible detail in the legs and armor plating positioned at just the right angles. However, the realistically damaged TIE Fighter wing and the bunker to set the scene shouldn’t go overlooked.

All grey mech is all good

It’s easy to use too much grey. Concrete cities, old castles, giant frigates… they all make copious use of the colour. It can be overdone, but this mech by Logey Bear does it just right. Plus, there is some colour variation as it uses a lot of older pieces which still have the old shade of grey.

Elemental Ice Dragon

With the heat rising everywhere, it’s time to bring in some ice. Some beautiful, well designed, sleek, dragon ice. Cecilie Fritzvold has brought us this lovely beast. I like the trans-blue highlights. The bone-like ridges add great texture to the dragon’s body, making it look particularly dangerous.

The Jawa Sandcrawler... as a mech

Kevin Ryhal is doing extremely important work: seeing what famous characters and vehicles would look like as Mobile Suits from Gundam. We’ve already seen an X-wing get the treatment, but now it’s time for the Jawa Sandcrawler to be mechified*.

*Mechified is a word I just invented which now exists.

“I can build a mech!” says Benny

Benny has one awesome mech to go with his spaceship thanks to Martin Gee. His heavy lifting mech has just the right amount of chunkiness and detail bits to give the illusion of function for my taste.

neo classic space mech: heavy lifter + extra pair of arms for precision work

The classic space logo plate over the cockpit (which can comfortably seat Benny), matching shapes on the shoulder and thigh plates, and smaller precision arms are my favorite details here.

Slick, black, bent-wing bird

There are a lot of LEGO models of the Vaught F4U Corsair out there, but none of them are as shiny as this one. This WW2 Pacific carrier workhorse has never been so dark or brooding. So emo!

I generally think of the Corsair as being dark blue, but apparently they were also available in black. Marcus Schultz was the designer, and his use of high-contrast waterslide decals really brings the model together.

The Hulkbuster? No. This is the Ghostbuster.

takamichi irie asks the viewer of this creation a very simple, very profound question: what if the Ghostbusters outsourced the creation of their equipment to Tony Stark? Looking past the cross-dimensional travel problems (or maybe this just exists in LEGO Dimensions), we would have something like this:

Ghostbusters got their new weapon from Tony Stark.

Not only is this a great little vignette and the idea behind it is genius, but it uses official sets to create something new. The scene looks to be the lower garage portion of 75827 Firehouse Headquarters and the Ghostbuster is a conversion of the Hulkbuster from 76031 The Hulk Buster Smash.

Can’t splurge on 10252 Volkswagen Beetle? Here’s a smaller one!

I will admit that the announcement of the 10252 Volkswagen Beetle got me overtly excited. Car and LEGO fans alike are just waiting for it to hit stores, but there’s two big problems: It’s $100 and it’s not out yet. Fixing both of those problems is a chibi version of the set from Gerald Cacas, complete with tiny surfboard and cooler chest.

10252 Wolkswagen Beetle (Chibi) I know i wont be able to buy this set, so why not just built it? Apparently I also dont have enough parts, so the last resort is to: Chibisize it!

Need more tiny cars? Check out this mini Mini Cooper which scales down 10242 Mini Cooper MK VII even more.

First look at Marvel’s Doctor Strange LEGO sets [News]

November brings a new major entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, will add a whole lot more magic to the expansive superhero world.

Cool cubism

Here’s a wonderful geometric creation from Wami Delthorn. LEGO lends itself perfectly to these sort of repeating-pattern artistic constructions — it’s a shame we don’t see more of them.

Lego Cube Pattern

If you look at the center of this image for long enough it starts to flip back and forth in a good example of the Necker Cube illusion. I could stare at this thing all day!
