As much as many of us enjoy building with Lego, we also have a secret desire to see a model getting smashed into smithereens, and that’s where WIRED comes in to deliver this slow motion video of the Lego Super Star Destroyer vs. the ground.
We know you all just *loved* the Zeus vs Thor brick film we recently featured, by the potty-mouthed YouTubers Epic Rap Battles of History. Well, like a bad penny, they’re back! This time providing a rap segment for this irreverent (PG rated) take on the The LEGO Movie by Honest Trailers.
[WARNING: Contains satire]
For its Season 4 bout between the Greek god Zeus and the Norse god Thor, the hugely popular YouTube channel Epic Rap Battles of History turned to Forrest Whaley and his team of stop-motion animators to give it the LEGO treatment. And the result is hilarious! Make sure to check out the entertaining behind the scenes video too.
[WARNING: Some profanity]
This Rube Goldberg machine by Christian Bechinie showcases an elegantly designed ball contraption surrounded by brick-built dominoes. Check out the entertaining video and see it all in motion.
It isn’t often that we see such excellent video of a collaborative train layout and it certainly helps that there are some really lovely trains in there too. Hats off to Michael Gale for a job well done!
The video is on Flickr as well, if you prefer that or want to leave a comment there.
Edit (JW): This is not actually a collaborative layout. Michael built the whole thing. Most impressive!
There’s been an argument circulating recently on the web that Gandalf’s original plan to get the One Ring into Mordor was via Air Eagle. It’s an interesting textual analysis, though unsupported by Tolkien’s copious notes and background information. The latest hilarious video by Brotherhood Workshop illustrates the counter-argument.
Beyond the Brick has posted a 1.5 hour long video tour of Brickworld Chicago. It’s the closest thing there is to checking out the exhibits in person.
We’ve seen some great smack-talk between competitors in past Iron Builder contests, but the ‘Haulics have really taken it up a notch – no, no, I’d say they’ve probably notched it up a scootch – against the Mayo‘s with this hilarious video featuring a brick built NERF SOAKER…
I thought they couldn’t top their earlier video of a working LEGO chainsaw but I guess I was wrong. This contest has already produced an insane number of one-upping builds, and I can’t wait to see how it plays out!
Tommy takes on many roles in this latest episode from BrickNerd. Check it out for news, reviews, chills, thrills, gore and more!
