    Concerts: they're expensive, and a lot of times security will still try to kick you out for smoking weed. Thankfully, intrepid Geekologie Reader Gary Katz (best known for his Apple Store diorama and visual history of Apple products -- I think he might be a fanboy) came up with... / Continue →

    Gary Katz went and made an Apple store diorama out of a shoebox, some construction paper, and a couple iPhones. "Why?" is the question I'm asking myself right now. And, "I have no f***ing idea, let's drink" is the only answer I've been able to come up with so far. Which, let... / Continue →

    Sorry for the unusual lack of postage in the past few days, folks. I've been traveling my ass off (read: cover up for male enhancement surgery) and had to post via message in a bottle. But I'm back and ready to Geek the ologie. Look out! Anyway, Mark Borlase went and built ... / Continue →

    Flickr user roguebantha_1138 made this wicked LEGO Star Wars diarrhea. Welcome to Mustaneer! (it's not as distant as Mustafar) Basically it's a Rebel attack on an Imperial base and mining installation. About a year in the making, on and off, it is 75 by 125cm and all built i... / Continue →

    The $400 Death Star diorama from LEGO weighs in at a whopping 3,800 pieces and is making me hotter than a volcano. A volcano on fire. The thing depicts 14 scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy and comes with 21 mini-figs, including 7 exclusive to the set. Wow, what coul... / Continue →

    Apparently The Brick Testament has been a work in progress for over six years, but I'd never been made aware of its existence before, so here it is. With over 3,600 scenes from the Bible, all the classics are illustrated in awesome LEGO detail. I looked through a bunch of the... / Continue →

    Brickshelfer MicahBerger made some pretty good looking Beowulf dioramas featuring gratuitous blood and violence, which, as we all know, is mandatory for a good LEGO diorama. They're appropriately titled "Then came Grendal...He bore God's wrath". And based on the look of these... / Continue →
