The LEGO Friends line launched in 2012 has certainly generated its share of discussion and even controversy. But whether you’re here because you want to read our reviews of the LEGO Friends sets or because you want to see what else LEGO fans are building with the new figures and LEGO parts, you’ll find a whole lot to like about LEGO Friends here on The Brothers Brick.

A Volkswagen Beetle to fit all of your Friends

Have you ever sat in the backseat of a VW Beetle? They’re very very small. Tyler Sky has captured the cramped nature and nostalgia for this classic car with his latest offering: a Friends mini-doll scale version of 10252 VW Beetle, which we recently reviewed.

What makes this adorable little Bug particularly wonderful is details: the roof comes off, and you can take a peek both at the trunk and the engine. I love the tiny red cooler strapped to the top!

Fluffy and furious: When good pets go bad

God help us all if grandma’s spoiled brat of a poodle ever gets its paws on a miniature-canine sized mech. And we’re definitely doomed if Fluff the kitten gains control of a flame-throwing bipedal hardsuit. This scene of certain terror is brought to us by Galaktek, right before the mouse began using an rocket launcher.

LEGO Friends pop group brings their first music tour to your neighborhood with this awesome rolling stage

Tyler Sky has shared his latest creation, which is so remarkable it could almost be an official set. This rig and trailer are packed with tons of stage equipment, and the girls look ready to throw a concert even in the middle of nowhere.

Friends Rolling Stage

The concept of a LEGO rig with a trailer is not new, as we are already familiar with them from the various Ferrari racing sets. But a trailer transforming into a stage looks absolutely glamorous, not to mention its cool smooth shape when folded up. And while the outside of the trailer is missing a huge logo of the band with a promo picture, this truck would be a great addition to the LEGO Friends set 41106 Pop Star Tour Bus.
