    This is a video of LEGO designer Daniele Benedettelli demonstrating the LEGO exosuit he built to control his tiny robot friend. When Daniele is wearing the suit, the robot will replicate any movements he makes with his arms. If I were him I would punch myself in the head. *c... / Continue →

    This is a video of a hermit crab who's upgraded from a shell to a giant LEGO brick. Is a LEGO brick better than a shell? I doubt it. Does a hermit crab with a LEGO for a shell get laid more than one without? I doubt it. At least not unless he finds a lady crab to move in r... / Continue →

    This is a stop motion video of a minifig from LEGO's Ninjago series completing a Ninja Warrior obstacle course. The whole video was pretty high quality. The sausage, egg and cheese English muffin I got from the gas station on my way to work this morning? That was pretty low ... / Continue →

    This is the 14-foot LEGO Starcraft II battlefield built by a group of international LEGO/Starcraft fans. It includes all three races and a ton of buildings and battle units. It made me think about how LEGO should create their own tabletop game like Warhammer and sell a ton of... / Continue →

    This is Brendan M and his 1:65 scale 75,000 LEGO Tower Of Orthanc (previously: this six foot version and LEGO's official Orthanc playset). Brendan looks sweaty but I'm pretty sure that's just a print on his shirt. He spent over a year building the 8-foot 9-inch tower, the rea... / Continue →

    These are some renderings of the Spaceballs Eagle 5 LEGO set proposed by LEGO Ideas member NvdK. Why he didn't actually build a real one is beyond me. Will the set ever reach production? I doubt it. If it does though it should come with the necessary pieces to convert the sh... / Continue →

    This is the wedding cake created by Cupcakes by SJ for a cousin's special day. My cousins' most special day? The day I was born and came into their lives. Granted I'm not a huge fan of fondant (or any size fan really), but I admire the creativity that went into the cake. *p... / Continue →

    This is a first look at the official $60 Big Bang Theory LEGO set due out later this year that people apparently wanted. I previously speculated it wouldn't get made, but I was wrong. For the record, that is the second time I've ever been wrong and I'm strong enough to admit ... / Continue →

    Remember that ultra-impressive GBC (great ball contraption) built by Kawaguchi Akiyuki. Well this is an even BIGGER one built by Maico Arts and Ben Jonkman that contains 88 different ball moving modules. That is a lot of ways to move balls! I usually move mine by nonchalantl... / Continue →

    This is the 10,000 piece "accurate to minifig scale" LEGO Millennium Falcon cross-section created by LEGO builders Titans Creations. It looks most impressive. I actually tried to build the 1,200 piece Millennium Falcon set that LEGO released a couple years ago, but you know w... / Continue →

    After two years up on the LEGO Ideas website, a proposal for Daft Punk minifigs and playset has finally garnered enough support to be offiically reviewed by LEGO. Wait -- it took two years? So apparently people want Daft Punk minifigs, but not THAT bad. That is how I am abou... / Continue →

    To celebrate Star Wars Day (I love celebrating by breaking things) this is a video from WIRED of an $800, 16-hour build LEGO Star Destroyer nose-diving into the ground at 1,000 frames per second. I like how they point out all the Star Wars minifigs that go flying, I feel like ... / Continue →
