LEGO bricks are amazing little parts that can bring to life almost anything you can imagine. There are many reasons to build — some people do it to relax, some to impress, and some are artists who love to sculpt with bricks as a medium. Regardless of the reasons, we can all agree that for those of us that just prefer to follow instructions, it can be delightful to still have a chance to build a few of these custom creations. For the designers, creating instructions is an effort that needs to be commended, as it a great deal of takes time and patience. Today, we’re recognizing some of the builders who shared instructions of their fantastic creations that were most popular in 2018 with readers of The Brothers Brick.
In 2018, the team at The Brothers Brick reviewed over 120 LEGO sets. For Collectible Minifigures, we’ll remember this year as the year that LEGO introduced “chaser” minifigures – having only one special figure in a box of 60. From the Technic range, the largest set ever was unleashed. In the classic System theme, the largest set this year trumps nearly all other sets that came before, coming in as the second-largest set of all time, just behind the UCS Millennium Falcon. LEGO IDEAS made headlines yet again this year, proving that LEGO has a winning theme on their hands, but only 2 of them made it into the Top 10 out of the four released.
Curious to find out which ones made it? Which Technic sets made the cut? How well did the Collectible Minifigures do? Dive right in as we take a moment to look at the Top 10 most popular reviews featured on The Brothers Brick website.

We hope you’ll be inspired to build your own LEGO creations after seeing all these amazing models.
