    This is the 6-foot, 20,000-brick LEGO Bender sculpture created by LEGOmaniac Adrian Drake. His stomach door opens to reveal space for several bottles of booze inside. Would you drink something that came from the stomach of a robot? I think I would. I mean, just as long as i... / Continue →

    This is the LEGO Firewalk constructed at the Bull Moose music store in South Portland, Maine. Not to brag, but I could go the distance easily. You see, ever since I was a child I've run around barefoot to develop super-calloused 'Ninja Turtle' feet. Now I can walk on anythin... / Continue →

    These are $45 Nanoblock sunglasses. They're covered in LEGO-like studs. They're not LEGO compatible though, they're only Nanoblock compatible. Apparently Nanoblocks are a miniaturized version of LEGO from Japan. Want to build a little Nanoblock fairy trimming your eyebrows?... / Continue →

    This is a preview of the upcoming LEGO playsets featuring female scientist minfigs. There's going to be a paleontologist, astronomer, and chemist. The playsets are a departure from LEGO's predominately male-centric sets, and come at a time when we need to inspire young female... / Continue →

    This is the 114-foot LEGO tower built in Budapest, Hungary. It beats the previous record holder (that was built by a bunch of schoolchildren) by a little over a foot. What I don't understand is why did they only beat the record by a foot? If I set out to build the world's ta... / Continue →

    Note: Picture unrelated, clearly somebody else's wife knows what's up. A man in Sweden recently took out an ad selling his massive 661-pound LEGO collection for $11,500 because his wife was threatening to leave him. Then go! But you're never going to find another man with a ... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO version of Homer's Homer car built by LEGO pro Brian Williams (previously: this real life Homer car). You know, I built a LEGO car once. "Let me guess -- it had square wheels." Good one, jerk! No, they were triangles. You know why? Because that's the shape ... / Continue →

    These are the LEGO shot glasses available from ThinkGeek ($20 for 4). They're not actually licensed LEGO products though because LEGO doesn't promote underage drinking, plus why pay for licensing rights when you don't have to? That is like flushing money down the toilet. Sam... / Continue →

    This is a preview for 'Brick Like Me', the 550th episode of The Simpsons, airing this Sunday. Just in case you suck at context clues, the episode takes place in a LEGO version of Springfield. I haven't really been keeping up with The Simpsons lately. Is it good? Bad? Ugly?... / Continue →

    This is a video of Alex Allmont's electronic beat producing LEGO machine, Playhouse. It makes beats so fresh you'd swear they were handpicked from the farm this morning. Or at least aren't passed their expiration date and marked with one of those orange 'Manager's Special' st... / Continue →

    This is a sneak peek at the upcoming Ninja Turtle LEGO sets based on the movie. Personally, I think they all leave something to be desired. Particularly the Ninja Turtle sewer base set. So, just for the record, I will only be buying these sets for the unique minifigs. Kee... / Continue →

    This is a series of Game of Thrones LEGO minifigs. Except they're called 'Dragon Sword Fighter Force', because nobody likes getting sued. Laid? Yes -- people love that. Especially when their partner does all the work so they can just lay back and relax. That's primo. $55 ... / Continue →

    This is a series of twenty popular bands imagined as LEGO minifigs by Adly Syairi Ramly. He says all the photos were taken with an iPhone 5 and there was no Photoshopping of the figures. Not that I was going to accuse him of that. But there's always someone out there in a da... / Continue →

    This is the surreal elephant LEGOmaniac Jin Kei made to resemble one from Salvador Dali's iconic Los Elefantes (picture of the original painting after the jump). Pretty cool, right? I'd proudly display that in my apartment. Or on my desk at work. I mean, if I had a desk. I... / Continue →

    Hey guys I am having some personal health problems, so bear with me. This is the Doctor Who TARDIS LEGO set currently up for voting on the LEGO Cuuso website. Of all the sets I've seen on the site recently, I feel like this one might actually stand a chance. Whovians are pre... / Continue →

    This is a video of LEGO robot CUBESTORMER 3 setting the world record for Rubik's Cube solving. It completes the cube in 3.253 seconds, two seconds faster than its father CUBESTORMER 2's previous record of 5.27 seconds. Of course there's also this robot that can solve any cube... / Continue →

    This is a stop-motion Simpsons opening made in LEGO with characters from the LEGO movie. Which I still haven't gotten around to seeing yet. You know why? Because I suck at being out in public. It's one of the things I am worst at. I am also pretty terrible at golf and anyt... / Continue →
