Dale Horvath’s RV from The Walking Dead in LEGO [Instructions]

While Dale may not get to enjoy his retirement driving around the country with his wife in an RV, we can all enjoy this great LEGO rendition of his iconic vehicle from the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, built by hachiroku24. The builder has included numerous key details, including all the gear Dale needs on his roof to keep watch over the survivors’ camp. I particularly like the rolled up awning.

If you want to build your own LEGO version of Dale’s RV, the builder has provided step-by-step instructions in the following video.

Game Of Thrones opening titles recreated in LEGO

Jonas Kramm has built four fabulous microscale LEGO versions of iconic castles from the opening titles of Game Of Thrones. Winterfell, The Twins, Castle Black & The Wall, and King’s Landing all get the brick treatment, built into a set of smartly-panelled bases. The southern capital of Westoros is unmistakable — all blood red walls and gold detailing, exactly as it appears in the show’s opening…

Winterfell is also beautifully done, particularly the Weirwood tree in the castle’s Godswood…

Moon of my life, My sun and stars

Justin Chua nails it with this minimalist LEGO depiction of Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen from Game Of Thrones. The characters are immediately recognisable, despite the stripped-back simplicity of the models — from Drogo’s distinctive tattoos and beard, to Daenerys’ dress and hair.

Drogo and Daenerys

I love the work on Drogo’s hair too — without his long braid (a record of victory in battle) he wouldn’t be able to command the respect of his riders.

Drogo 3

This is an interesting scale and style for character building. I’d like to see more of the denizens of Westeros (and Easteros) rendered like this.

The bar where I met your mother

One of the things I like about TV show How I Met Your Mother is how central McLaren’s Bar is to the action. Having run pubs for years, I love to see a good bar depicted well in LEGO. speedyhead doesn’t disappoint here with some excellent attention to detail.

McLaren's Pub

The booths are nicely-built, as are the bar stools, but I particularly like the wonderful clutter on the back bar and the use of printed tiles to represent all the posters and sports memorabilia that bedeck the walls. When you wrap all the detail up with a smart color scheme and smooth tiled look, this would be a great little pub model even it wasn’t so faithful to the TV show.

It’s easy to get lost in the vastness of space

This LEGO Star Trek bridge by Guy Smiley is remarkable. Just look at all those panels, screens, lights, and switches! Guy managed to capture the tense emotion of the opening scene of the newest movie in the franchise, Star Trek Beyond, and at the same time, he also captured some of the swanky 70s-style pizzaz of the original series. Seriously, is that a Chris Pine minifig or a William Shatner one?

Thunder... Thunder... ThunderCats... HO!

Not content with wowing us with his fantastic LEGO recreations of record company labels, Chris van Vliet has knocked it out of the park with this brick mural celebrating the heroes and villains of ThunderCats.

Here’s a close-up of Lion-O…

But what is a hero without his nemesis? Cue the arrival of Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living…

LEGO Dr Who chess set has all the moves

Adam Dodge has built a fantastic miniland-scale Dr Who chess set. The figures and characters he’s created for it are fabulous – various Doctors and companions facing off against a collection of classic enemies and villains.

We have multiple Doctors and the obligatory TARDIS…

And then there are the enemies. I love how Adam has nailed the design for Missy’s hair — immediately recognisable in only a handful of pieces. Cracking work on Davros too…

The Mystery Shack

If you travel a lot, you get to see many amazing things. But sometimes you end up in a lousy place which sounded better on the internet than it really is in real life. The Mystery Shack is probably the worst form of a tourist trap — overcharged entry fees, irresponsible staff, sinister owner, supernatural occurrences, and occasional destruction of property. Makes you not want to visit Oregon ever again. Fortunately, The Mystery Shack is only an imaginary place in TV show Gravity Falls and this is a simple LEGO creation from talented builder soccersnyderi. So don’t be alarmed and take a look at the rest of the pictures.

George R.R. Martin sits upon the Iron Throne with these LEGO Game of Thrones characters

A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin takes his rightful place in the Red Keep atop the infamous Iron Throne, from whence he will cast judgment and pronounce life or death upon the world’s inhabitants (mostly death). This magnificent entourage of LEGO characters by Callum brings many of your favorite characters to brick form, from Eddard Stark and Jon Snow, to Jaime and Tyrion, and Daenerys and Khal Drogo.

Powered by the stars themselves

Spanning two decades and achieving worldwide popularity, the Stargate franchise gave Star Trek a pretty good run for its money – and is now even up for a movie reboot. The final spin-off, named Stargate Universe, tried to lure fans by adopting the grittier realism of shows like Battlestar Galactica. Unfortunately that shift didn’t gel with audiences, and the show was cancelled after just 2 seasons.

I’m a huge SG-U fan and was sad to see it go. So when German builder nameless_member produced this beautiful model of the star ship Destiny, it was nice to be reminded I wasn’t the only one…

I really love the compactness of this build – it’s probably the smallest scale that you could build Destiny at and still do it justice. It has just the right level of greebling, and the ship’s distinctive curvature is perfectly captured, as you can see from this rear angle. Even the shuttle craft have been included!

Apple Macintosh 1984 Commercial Gets LEGO-ified.

Apple cascaded its way into the public psyche with its famous 1984 commercial, directed by Ridley Scott. Jason Allemann’s wonderfully poignant LEGO version re-imagines the work with Apple itself as the all-seeing overlord. Whatever side of the fence you sit regarding Apple’s business these days, this is a fantastic piece.
