These guitars by LEGOWOW have enough detail to look almost exactly like the real thing, but they’re still small enough to be awesomely adorable. Thanks to Bruce for the tip!
LEGO Music models on The Brothers Brick | Page 2
Just like many other artists, LEGO builders find inspiration in the music they listen to as they create the wonderful models you see here on The Brothers Brick. It’s no surprise, then, that music inspires many LEGO models more directly, from minifig musicians to album art recreated with bricks.
With LEGO Rock Band now shipping from both Amazon.com and the LEGO Shop, you may want to build some of the things you’re seeing in the game, starting with the band’s bus. You can download a PDF of the instructions from LEGO.com now. Via FBTB.
Ryan Wood (lights) rocks. Also, he built a CubeDude, which also rocks. I love the tattoos on his arm, and how he’s holding the whammy bar. Speaking of LEGO Rock Band, the video game is due out next month, and the full track list has been announced. (I’ve been avoiding dedicating a whole post to Continue reading →
Tomas Redigh spent 1,500 hours using LEGO to animate a song by Daniel Larsson. With appearances from Mario, Pong, Tetris, Pac-Man, and more, the video is sure to please any video game fan. Via Wimp.com. Great tip, nnenn!
Rock and roll may not be noise pollution, but it can apparently bring down an otherwise indestructible building. Via Kotaku.
Whatever you thought of Michael Jackson later in his life, he leaves behind a legacy of iconic songs and amazing music videos. Ciamoslaw Ciamek captures Michael doing the moonwalk in “Smooth Criminal”.
Kotaku spent some time at E3 playing the upcoming LEGO Rock Band game and reports some early impressions: The problem with this game is all in the name. LEGO Rock Band makes you wonder “why LEGO?” Maybe “Rock Band: Play Rock Band With Your Kids” would have been better. Because if you don’t have kids, Continue reading →
These custom KISS minifigs by Jonathan Gilbert (Shmails) have me shoutin’.

A press release today, however, confirms that LEGO Rock Band is very real. The console versions will be co-developed by TT Games and Harmonix, while the Nintendo DS version will be developed Continue reading →
Lunchtime conversation today turned to the various bats my coworkers and I have had in our houses. It didn’t occur to us that having Ozzy Osbourne around might’ve helped. Rock on, Mr. Spielbrick.
Michael Jasper showcased some cool string bass and saxophone designs played by his Some Like it Hot characters last week, but he’s just added some more amazing musical instrument designs. Not only do these Scotsmen carry ingenious bagpipes, but they’re also wearing kilts (made from minifig torsos): This design for an electric guitar rocks my Continue reading →
Andrew Colunga gets in touch with his inner Deadhead with his latest build. The technique for the chain of roses is pretty unique. I don’t think I’ve seen that before.
Kitchen scenes that include refrigerators seem to be all the rage these days. Dr. X finds inspiration in Weird Al Yankovic’s “Eat It.” Note the sticker on the fridge — a cut-up version of the “I Love Hamburgers” sticker from a SpongeBob SquarePants set, if I’m not mistaken.
Bundalings takes inspiration from indie rockers Eisley for Bionicle Building Contest 51 — a “bat with butterfly wings”: Check out more pictures on Brickshelf (and download “Marvelous Things” from , if you like). Via BioniBlog.
I don’t quite have Belle and Sebastian figured out, but maybe that’s why I like them so much. Perhaps I’m arriving at the B&S party a bit late, but I got started with The Life Pursuit and keep working my way backward through their catalog.
