    This is a beautiful stop-motion video created by animator Jon Rolph of an artist (presumably himself) producing a Mondrian replica by painting with LEGO bricks. You know, I wish I had the patience to make stop-motion videos because I have some GOOD IDEAS. "Let's hear them." ... / Continue →

    This is the note that was included with some LEGO doll house sets in the 70's, reminding parents that it's okay for girls to want to play with rocketships and boys to build dollhouses. It's weird to think some parents actually needed to be reminded of that. I had a Cabbage Pa... / Continue →

    This are the LEGO Statler and Waldorf figures built by LEGOmaniac grubaluk. He did a great job. You know, I love Statler and Waldorf, I see a lot of myself in them. They're just such... "Jerks." Yeah, sure, but like, loveable jerks, right? Like me? loveable jerks? Why are... / Continue →

    This is the steampunk AT-AT walker made out of LEGO by LEGO-pro Markus1984. Now all Luke and the rest of the rebels need are some coal-powered dirigibles to fly around and tie all the legs together. Somebody really should shoot a steampunk remake of the original trilogy. Or ... / Continue →

    This is the modular plastic Springfield built by LEGO pro Matt De Lanoy. Now that -- that looks like a fun playset. I would give my left nut to stomp through this Springfield like Godzilla. Well not MY left nut, one of my roommate's that I'll just say is mine (he lost a very... / Continue →

    This is the $200 Collector's Edition LEGO Tumbler due out in September. The vehicle measures 15-inches by 9-inches and contains 1,869-pieces. Mostly black ones. I think I might build it. Then add fireworks to the back and accidentally set it ablaze trying to make it speed d... / 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 →

    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 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 →
