LEGO Glamdring, the Foe-Hammer!

Cole Edmonson has rocked my world again. He has recently posted pictures of his full-scale Glamdring, the sword carried by Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings. It is a beautiful sword and Cole has out-done himself. I hope he continues recreating LOTR weapons in LEGO form. I’m loving it.

Life-size LEGO Bag End built by LEGO Model Shop

LEGO posted photos on their Facebook page yesterday of a life-size version of my favorite LEGO set, 79003 An Unexpected Gathering.

Life-size LEGO Bag End

Here’s what LEGO says:

It took a team of 12 model shop employees 3,000 hours to build this life size model of the LEGO Bag End set. In addition to containing over 2 million 1×1 bricks this model has working lights in the fireplace and over the bookstand as well as a chimney that really smokes!

I suspect that this display model was built for an upcoming trade show, like Toy Fair. We’ll ask around and update this post as we learn more.

You can see more views on the official LEGO and LEGO Shop Facebook pages.

Cube Comparison – LEGO Rubik’s Cube

Jameson built a thing. Or rather, inspired by cheap dice on Bricklink, he built himself a Rubik’s Cube. Given the amount of variations on the cube in general, I thought it was a real one from the thumbnail on Flickr. Impressive!

I want to see more creations using those dice pieces. They’ve got some amazing potential applications.

Life Size Minifig Blaster is Full of Win!

You know a creation is awesome when the first thought that pops into your head is, “I want that!” Brickthing made a life size version of the new double barreled Alien Conquest blasters for the MOC Olympics. Lego should seriously consider making life size versions of these things.  Pew pew.

Couple this with Norbert Labuguen‘s Hero Factory built life size Alien Clinger, I think we’ve a great new meme bigifying things!
