Evan B. (Lego Junkie) has built a scene from Call of Duty Black Ops II, I know nothing of the game, and Evan admits to not playing it himself. However, what I do know is that this is one rockin’ example of how to build decay. That diner sign is an absolute thing of beauty! Continue reading →

Look for lots of LEGO models inspired by Halo, the Legend of Zelda, Gears of War, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, and more. Game on!
One benefit of getting together with other LEGO fans at local club meetings is that you get to hear the thought process that goes into their LEGO models. Shawn Snyder (Flickr) has been building fantastic character sculptures for years — remember his amazing Predator bust? — and lately he’s been bringing his figures to SEALUG Continue reading →
Bart De Dobbelaer has built a classic “baddie”, the Cacodemon, from the iconic and controversial video game “DOOM“. It is so perfect (and adorable) I need one…or three. EDIT: I had originally written that the Cacodemon was introduced in DOOM 2, but I was in error. Many thanks to Peter Morris for the correction!
Peter L. Morris was commissioned by Digital Reality to build LEGO examples of some of the aircraft from their XBOX Live game Sine Mora. Peter’s unique starfighter style translated very well for both of these planes. Big congrats to Peter on the commission, and a job well done! You can download instructions if you would Continue reading →
Cam M. built himself a nifty little stand to hold his iPhone so that he can actually steer while playing car racing games. Cam utilized a Smallworks Brickcase to attach the phone, but it would still be possible to do something like this without such a case. I think I may have just found myself Continue reading →
In January 2007, Mike Crowley began building all the major characters from Nintendo’s Mario Kart games, starting with King Koopa himself, Bowser. Mike soon followed with Mario and Toad: Yoshi & Donkey Kong: Mike brought all of these to BrickFest PDX 2007 in Portland, where he had them all in karts that I don’t think Continue reading →

Pate-keetongu did a fantastic job of making Bioshock’s iconic Big Daddy. The use of the large Technic ball on the head is perfect.
Sean and Steph Mayo are ever so innovative in their builds. They created a mosaic of Cortana from Halo featuring spinning columns of 1×1 transparent round plates. You have to see the video for the incredible effect. You can read more about this building technique on MosaicBricks.
The hydralisk is one of the most iconic creatures in the game of StarCraft, and Mike Nieves‘ Lego rendition captures the ferociousness of this feared zerg beast. Mike recently made an infestor and has plans to build other zerg units as well, and I can’t wait to see them.
The Like a Boss contest deadline is coming up in just a couple of weeks, and we’re starting to see some really nice entries. This LEGO Bowser by Zane Houston is giving the competition a run for its money — or at least lots of gold coins. Here’s an animated GIF of Bowser’s working jaws:
Rod Gillies (2 Much Caffeine) departs from his comfort zone to build a large-scale Ganondorf from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. An entry for the Like a Boss contest that we’re sponsoring, Rod’s Ganon even manages to capture the evil expression of this legendary villain.
Jameson Gagnepain clearly has a surplus of those ever-so-useful LEGO game dice. He’s put them to good use for his entry into the Like a Boss contest, resulting in this fabulous display of impossible Tetris: For an added touch, he’s done a stop-motion version complete with the frustrating anticipation of not getting the particular shape Continue reading →
