How to build the baby-est of baby grand pianos [Instructions]

Back in January, we featured a tiny LEGO upright piano with instructions, built by Tiago Catarino. Now he brings us another mini masterpiece: a baby grand! While they’re both adorable, I have to say, this one is my favorite. He captures the shape perfectly.

Relive the Star Wars Trench Run with a LEGO custom build kit [Instructions]

Early on when Jason Allemann from JK Brickworks first revealed and eventually submitted the wonderful Pursuit of Flight on LEGO Ideas. He also recreated two variations, a scene with Santa and his reindeers, and also modification of the scene that captured many Star Wars Fans hearts with the nail-biting Trench Run scene from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

While we’ll never get to see the Pursuit of Flight be made into an official LEGO set, he’s released the building instruction guide and parts for the Trench Run.

You can download the parts and instructions from the JK Brickworks website here, which consists of an add-on guide if you wish to motorise the setup.

Building “Pursuit of Flight” is still attainable [Instructions]

Nearly a year ago, we featured this exceptional kinetic sculpture by Jason Allemann. The “Pursuit of Flight” later went on to become a finalist in the recent LEGO Ideas review round. A week ago, LEGO announced which projects made it into the next production run, and unfortunately, Jason’s “Pursuit of Flight” was not one of those projects. But do not despair! He has made the full instructions available to anyone who is dying to build this wonderful piece of art.

For those big Star Wars fan out there, you can try your hand at a trench run variation of the original model.

As you may know, this is not the first time that Jason (also known as JK Brickworks) has been a LEGO Ideas finalist. He has actually previously won the coveted opportunity to have his build become an official set… twice. He’s responsible for 21305 Maze and 21315 Pop-Up Book (the latter in collaboration with Grant Davis).

Build your own LEGO BD-1 from the video game Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order [Instructions]

From the release of Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise Of Skywalker to the premiere of the first live-action TV series, The Mandalorian, on the Disney+ streaming service, Star Wars fans have a lot to be excited about. For video gamers, there was one more event that made 2019 the year of Star Wars, and that was the highly anticipated Jedi: Fallen Order, which put players in the role of a Jedi Padawan in hiding since the tragedy of Order 66. But one of the best new characters introduced is the pet-sized BD-1. The adorable little companion droid who helps the player with health stims, slicing Imperial tech, and scanning ancient ruins for valuable data. Now you can build your own LEGO BD-1 with instructions by hachiroku24. Unfortunately, you will need to collect a lot of extra parts to unlock all the customization color schemes from the game.

Make your own adventures with the Razor Crest from The Mandalorian [Instructions]

I’m willing to bet my last brick that within the next 27 months, we will be getting an official LEGO issued brick-built Razor Crest in some shape or form. Until then, we can thank Hachiroku24 for giving us the instructions to build your own version and play out adventures from a distant galaxy. Don’t forget to pair that up with The Child (aka Baby Yoda, aka Cash Cow) that you can build for hours of fun. In fact, there’s two versions you can consider, the one from Hachiroku24 himself, or the one that Miro Dudas shared not too long ago.

Here’s the video build guide for the Razor Crest.

The Brothers Brick Explore: LEGO Classic Space [Feature]

Classic Space – one of the perennial LEGO building genres, ever-popular amongst fans for its nostalgic nods to iconic official sets of the past, and the opportunities it presents to depict an optimistic expansionist vision of humanity’s intergalactic future.

This building genre takes its primary influences from the LEGO Space sets released between 1978 and 1987, and the follow-up themes released during the late-80s and beyond, when factions like Futuron, Blacktron, and the Space Police were introduced to the universe.

But the genre is about much more than just the official sets. Take a trip with The Brothers Brick as we blast off on our grand tour of LEGO Classic Space…

The cutest baby in a galaxy far, far away [Instructions]

Episode 5 of The Mandalorian has hit Disney+, and “Baby Yoda” continues to melt viewers’ hearts like a bowl of ice cream under the hot summer sun. What would melt your heart even more? How about hachiroku24’s adorable LEGO rendition of the little guy in his floating bassinet? Just look at that face! The cloth wrapped around Baby Yoda is in fact the large cape from LEGO’s Obi-Wan Kenobi constraction figure (2015).

If you feel like you need this much cuteness in your life, hachiroku24 has provided video instructions on how to build the model. For another rendition of the character, be sure to also check out Miro Dudas’ Baby Yoda we featured in November.

Catch the Pokemon Magnemite before your TV goes on the fritz [Instructions]

Is your radio going all static-y? Are your lights flickering? Do you feel a slight tingling in your dental fillings? Are your pets acting all weird, I mean weirder than usual? Paranormal enthusiasts will say that you have ghosts, astrologers will tell you that we’re going into Mercury Retrograde but Pokemon Go players may cite that a disturbance in the electro-magnetic flux just might be the presence of a Magnemite, and you’d better catch it quick before it wreaks havoc on your fridge magnets. Builder Poke Bricks is totally into Pokemon (no, seriously, it’s true!) and we just might see a lot more brick-built Pokemon creatures in their photostream soon.
