Printed Circuit video clip made entirely from LEGO

Stop-motion filmmaker and AFOL Chris Salt (0ldScratch) has created an entirely brick-animated video clip for one of the latest tracks by Printed Circuit. This is some of the smoothest brick animation I’ve seen and the use of the M-Tron torsos is brilliant.

Suggested by Pete Reid and my apologies to Pete, Chris and our readers for taking so very long to finally get it posted.

Circle is the new square

There was a time when circular towers were the latest innovation in castle building, now Tyler (Legohaulic) builds castle on a circular base. I only remember one other creation that features this technique, and that was built several years ago. Filling the circle is difficult with rectangular LEGO bricks, but Tyler finds an effective solution by laying differently shaped bricks to create a cobblestone mosaic.

Download the NinjaGo theme song – “The Weekend Whip” by The Fold [MP3]

LEGO NinjaGo

The NinjaGo theme song has been generating a lot of talk recently and I, for one, like it.

LEGO NinjaGo

The NinjaGo website has been up for a while now on, playing “The Weekend Whip” by The Fold (thanks to Paul Lee for identifying the artist and song name).

For those of you who think the song is as awesome as we do, LEGO has kindly shared the song for everyone to download.

We’ll host the MP3 right here on The Brothers Brick for now, so download away!


“Underneath, it’s a hyperalloy combat chassis.”

This bust of the classic Terminator frame is incredibly detailed and wonderfully menacing. Martin Latta has done a most excellent job. While the actual Terminator is awesome, that base just makes it that much better and complements the build perfectly. This is one of those that I would like to own.

Many thanks to Tom Williamson for the heads up!

And the winner is....

….Iain Heath’s “Tastes like Zebra”! The contest was grueling and the entries were hysterical. The judges were judgmental and the winner loathes minifigs. All in all, it was a great contest!

LEGO Mime is a terrible thing to Waste

Congratulations to Iain and many thanks to all who entered. It really was a lot fun to watch and it was the easiest contest I’ve ran in many years. Mime On!

Do you like tall towers?

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year and a half since we last saw a castle creation by Rocko, but things are different when you have your own business to run. Fortunately for us, Rocko’s had time to build a new castle recently. I love the contrast between the tan walls and the blue water. The greenery gives a breath of life to this otherwise fig-less display. Check out the other view of the castle for a beautiful curved staircase.

Highly detailed LEGO Cutty Sark


I’ve never seen work by Henrik Hoexbroe but I’ve definitely been missing out. His 1:50 model of the Cutty Sark is one of the most beautiful and accurate LEGO sailing vessels I have ever seen. Most notably his mixing of studs-out sculpting and other techniques to create fluid shapes is a textbook demonstration of what can be achieved in LEGO.
