I have found in my years engrossed within the LEGO building community that builders utilizing the “Chibi” style of design are few and far between. Kevin Ryhal has created a set of Chibi 501st ARF Troopers and AT-RT walkers from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. His attention to detail mixed with his “Chibi-ness” design is Continue reading →
LEGO Movies models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
Films and the cinema provide a lot of great inspiration for LEGO builders all over the world. You’ll find LEGO models inspired by everything from Mad Max to Toy Story here.
…oh wait, nevermind, that is ‘Thunderstruck‘…this is a ‘Thunderclap‘!?!?! All jokes aside, Nathaniel Rehm-Daly (nate_daly) has built an absolutely stunning spacecraft out of the Star Wars Universe called a BT-7 Thunderclap. I am not familiar with the source at all, but was immediately able to recognize this as a Star Wars ship. Nate has perfectly Continue reading →
Taylor (Stormbringer) has made an excellent rendition of Maleficent the dragon from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. The dragon design is really quite stunning, and the fantastic landscaping is just icing on the cake! He has posted this as a project on Cuusoo as well. Be sure to check out the rest of Taylor’s dragons because he Continue reading →
Calin‘s Bat Rod is a nifty creation, but the presentation really makes it stand out. In addition to the appropriate brown vintage background, the lighting texture on the model (especially the roof) is gorgeous. Thanks for the tip Ewok in Disguise!
Today might be a witty day for a Star Wars celebration, but it also happens to be the day The Avengers film is released. And with as much excitement as the rest of us, but a with great deal more effort and skill, Ken Robichaud (aka buriedbybricks) is showing his enthusiasm for Marvel’s latest film. 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.
There are many animal styles of Kung Fu, each of which was represented by a character in the movie Kung Fu Panda. Jack McKeen (madLEGOman) has built almost all of those characters out of his bricks. I think he’s done a fantastic job of creating expressive faces for all the mammals. The mantis model also Continue reading →
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. They’ve given it full consideration, and have determined that they will not further pursue turning this project into a set. This marks Continue reading →
Alex Jones (“Orion Pax”) usually builds stuff inspired by the 80s, but this time he’s gone back further in time to 1964 to bring The Munsters‘ mansion. This is all very excellent but don’t forget to check out the ‘rods.
G4′s Attack of the Show featured a segment called “Rad Jobs With LEGO” featuring Erik Varszegi.
Thorsten (Xenomurphy) captures the action from an explosive battle between Spider Man and the Green Goblin. What may be more impressive is the construction of the building, which in addition to the graffiti on both sides, also features tiles used in place of plates to create the texture of a real brick wall.

I recently finished these two mosaics and was able to display them at Emerald City Comic Con this last weekend. They are my first mosaics but won’t be my last, as they were much more fun than I was expecting. I guess there is something to be said for building outside your comfort zone, eh? Continue reading →
LEGO Marvel sets are coming out shortly (watch this space, as they say), as is The Avengers in movie theaters. LEGO has recreated the poster for the movie with the minifigs from the upcoming sets, plus some that aren’t currently scheduled for any sets. I’m still not sold on Tony Stark’s Iron Man helmet/mask, which Continue reading →
This little gem by Nathan Proudlove (Proudlove) seemed especially appropriate to post today. It’s also pretty impressive, considering it’s only 4 studs wide. Great job building the iconic stripe at that scale.
Shaun of the Dead star Simon Pegg has thrown his weight behind a LEGO CUUSOO project by Belgian LEGO fan Yatkuu, and the project is nearing 10,000 votes. UPDATE: The project has hit 10,000 supporters since I posted this last night. Congratulations to Yatkuu! Even if TBB readers can help nudge this project from 9,608 Continue reading →
