Introducing the Like Launcher [Video]

Over the years, we here at The Brothers Brick have written a few guides about how to get your LEGO creations featured on our website. But what if you want more? Well then janbenedict_yap has the solution for you! Introducing the Like Launcher!

facebook like launcher

Use it launch some Facebook likes into the world and maybe some of those good vibes will come back to you in the form of likes on pictures of your LEGO models. Simply load a like into the launcher to fire it at what pleases you. You can utilize it in one of two ways: Trajectory Mode or Direct Fire mode. I know when I like something, my favourite way to let you know is to shoot a thumbs up, right in your face. And now you can too! But don’t take my word for it, check out on video.

TBB cover photo for October 2019: Entering Aquila

This month’s cover image across TBB’s social media comes to us from W. Navarre, who together with three other builders crafted a series of exquisite scenes from the 1985 film Ladyhawke. We covered all four scenes this summer, but we were so drawn to this beautiful portrait of the middle eastern city of Aquila that we just had to pick it. Everywhere you look the buildings employ ingenious patterns of bricks, making this feel like a vibrant, wealthy merchant town.

TBB cover photo for July 2019: Lumos Maxima!

For this month’s July cover photo for The Brothers Brick’s social media channels, we’re celebrating the newest wave of LEGO Harry Potter sets, which are available starting today in North America. We were amazed with this incredible version of Hogwarts castle by Hyungmin Park. Lit with hundreds of LEDs, the model is photographed so beautifully we could almost believe it was from the movies. Speaking of which, since we got a LEGO Batman Movie, a LEGO Harry Potter Movie would be incredible. (Psst, Warner Bros, are you listening?)

TBB cover photo for June 2019: The Old Man and the Sea

For this month’s TBB’s social media cover image, summer is in full swing as we head to the beach with vir-a-cocha‘s excellent re-imagining of the Old Man and the Sea. After all, there’s nothing like a good day at the beach with a surfboard and a classic car. From the old man’s Hawaiian shirt to the sweet lines of the 1970 Dodge Challenger (which looks as if it would fit perfectly beside the official LEGO Ford Mustang), there’s a lot to love in this seemingly simple scene of summer.
