Now, Dutch industrial designer kvanb has created a working LEGO version of the Rhino and posted it — with Theo Jansen’s blessing Continue reading →
LEGO Cuusoo is really picking up speed lately, breaking 88 miles per hour moments ago! Masashi Togami’s DeLorean project on Cuusoo achieved the 10,000 vote threshold tonight, meriting it an official review by the LEGO Company, and if all goes well, development into an official LEGO set.
When LEGO fan Greg (aka Yatkuu) achieved 10,000 votes for his Cuusoo project based on the R-rated film Shaun of the Dead, we were all incredibly curious to see how LEGO would react.

Mark Stafford (nabii) has had the inspired idea to harness to power of LEGO CUUSOO to help in our important, but until recently unknown, quest for Justin Bieber LEGO sets. So if you’d like to see JB in LEGO form, go vote. I’ll get back to my usual programming when I return to Australia. But Continue reading →
