This life-sized Gears of War Lancer Assault Rifle by PLUM B already got the looks to fit a COG soldier, but it also features a clip-fed firing mechanism that shoots rubber bands – perfect for taking out the paper Locust horde. If that’s not enough, the saw blade on the front of the gun is Continue reading →

A team of 22 model builders from Enfield recently built a full-scale Ford Explorer for the opening of the new Legoland in Florida. It took them approximately 2500 hours and used around 380,000 bricks! The Explorer will be on display in front of one of the new park’s attractions, the Ford Driving School.

These sparrows by Schfio are extremely well built. At first glance they look real. It blows me away when a builder can capture such a great look in something so small. Many thanks to Bruce for the heads up!
Matt Armstrong crosses another great build off his list with this typewriter.
Chris Rozek recently recreated a striking Rickenbacker 4001 “Lefty” from the anime series FLCL. I have become rather a fan of full-size LEGO models and this one is quite impressive. It is fully wearable and unglued. Well played, Chris!
I’ve been reading about Samuel F. B. Morse in David McCullough’s latest book, The Greater Journey, in Morse’s less known artist role, so it pleases me to no end to see that Matt Armstrong (monsterbrick) has added a Morse Key to his ongoing series of 19th century antiques and inventions. There’s something to be said Continue reading →
I can’t believe Aliens is 25 years old. I’m not sure Giovanni Tuzzi built this life-size M41A1 Pulse Rifle to celebrate the movie’s anniversary, but it’s certainly awesome. Giovanni’s rifle includes several working functions, including triggers, cocking handle, pumping grip, and removable magazine.
This Victorian phone by Matt Armstrong is a thing of beauty and a joy forever…or something like that. I normally hate phones, but I’ll make an exception for this one.
Ben Caulkins (Benny Brickster) built a life-sized costume of the Master Chief from Halo over the past six months. Those who have followed his Flickr postings have seen the suit develop from the helmet down. Now that this epic project is finished, Ben shares his thoughts on the process and techniques behind the build. Some Continue reading →
Jonathan Robson’s custom life-sized LEGO helmet reads comic books so you don’t have to. A USB drive pops into the back of the helmet that plays the audio content from comic books. You can see the full feature on Engadget. Thanks for the tip [Dablackcat]!
Tyler Clites built a life-sized replica of the ARC gun from District 9. Nuff said. I’ll leave you to pick up pieces of your brain from the floor.
The M6D Pistol is a favorite weapon of many Halo players back in the days of Halo: Combat Evolved. This life-sized rendition by Robo-Man is best I’ve seen. I particularly like the SNOT details and the utilization of studs on the grip.
Hey, all you lurking Castle Lovers out there, I will be hosting a monthly build challenge on Classic Castle. The first challenge is life-size Medieval Weapons. No other rules. That’s right. No rules. So give it whirl, hop over there, and show us what you can do. Here’s an example, to get the creative juices Continue reading →
Harrison (corran101) says he’s been on a bit of a Doctor Who kick lately. His life-size sonic screwdriver would fit perfectly in the Doctor’s hand. See more of Harrison’s Dr. Who LEGO creations on Flickr.
