My sensors are not picking up anything. Where do we go now? My head hurts in a good way while looking at this intriguing build by Sheo. There's so much to look at more closely to figure out how the flooring tessellation effect was achieved. The walls are an especially enigmatic and puzzling construction with a smooth look that belies its complexity.
Random set of the day: Road Crane Today's random set is 558 Road Crane, released in 1979. It's one of 19 Town sets produced that year. It contains 55 pieces and 1 minifig. It's owned by 223 Brickset members. If you want to add it to your collection you might find it for sale at BrickLink or eBay.
This brick-built Final Fantasy character takes it to the "limit break." The Final Fantasy video game franchise has been going strong for over thirty years, but of its many incarnations, the 1997 Playstation release of Final Fantasy VII continues to hold a special place in my heart. TBB regular Moko has reignited my nostalgia with a beautiful rendering of the game's protagonist, Cloud Strife.
McLaren P1 - Picture Special This is a near perfect working replica of the McLaren P1, it's really orange, and it might be the finest Technic Supercar of 2018… Built by brunojj1 of Eurobricks, this incredible 1:8 model of McLaren's flagship hybrid hypercar measures over 70 studs / almost 60cm in length and is constructed from over 3,000 LEGO pieces.
Plumbing Safety Plumbing safety is no laughing matter. Every year hundreds of people are injured while improperly using the tools of the trade, and it's no joke. Not to mention the costs of repairs should a small flood happen. I know from first hand experience that a simple toilet overflow at the hands of a 9 year old can blossom into a $20k restoration project.

Dinner For Two Inspired by the recent part study of the new wand piece over at New Elementary builder MinifigNick decided to experiment, and this is the result: A charming dinner setting in a very interesting dining room. And while he had all those new Harry Potter parts laying around he decided to incorporate a few, can you spot them?
Visit the busy town of Khevroa in the Isles of Aura There have been many entries in the continuing Isles of Aura saga, a series of floating islands creations, but I wanted to spend some time touring Isaac and John Snyder's latest effort: the Town of Khevroa.
Is the Zamboni the slowest vehicle ever made? Sometimes I wonder which would be the slower vehicle - the paver that lays asphalt on roads, or the Zamboni ice resurfacer. While I'm pondering over it, here's a Zamboni build to add to your city ice skating rink for all minifigure inhabitants to enjoy a smooth slidin' surface to skate on, courtesy of de-marco.
Drop into action with the DT-92 Rigellian Dropship Prepare for action in hostile territory with Ben "Spaceship!" Smith's phenomenal APC transport, the DT-92 Rigellian Dropship. Technically, I've led off this article with the money shot of the rear 3/4 of the ship, because I am enamored with Ben's gorgeous engine arrangement.
Random set of the day: Dump Truck Today's random set is 6648 Dump Truck, released in 1980. It's one of 17 Town sets produced that year. It contains 42 pieces and 1 minifig. It's owned by 962 Brickset members. If you want to add it to your collection you might find it for sale at BrickLink or eBay.
Space Carrot When I learned that LEGO was going to be made of plants, I didn't realize that a full carrot was on the menu! Zed_43 has created a very organic spaceship and a cute little scene that can make everyone smile. But the icing on top is the impressive use of a real carrot as the core of the spaceship!
LEGO BrickHeadz Rumored 2019 Sets Home Â» LEGO BrickHeadz Â» LEGO BrickHeadz Rumored 2019 Sets The year is slowly winding down and all of the 2018 LEGO BrickHeadz sets have already been announced and revealed, however, we have gotten some rumors of some 2019 BrickHeadz sets.
Bullfinch in the snow This Bullfinch, based on the LEGO Ideas Birds set 21301 fits perfectly atop a snow-covered branch, looking rather stately. I can almost hear chirping. The tree is skillfully constructed to fit inside the glass dome, without feeling too cramped, or too minimal.
Review: 21047 Las Vegas The result is 21047 Las Vegas, which will be available from 1st September. Also known as Sin City and the Gambling Capital of the World, Las Vegas is perhaps an odd choice of city for LEGO portray, although there's no disputing it's home to some interesting architecture.
A little corner of Italy and more in LEGO! Luca is a fan of LEGO trains, LEGO Speed Champions style cars, LEGO biker gangs, and Italian neighborhoods recreated in LEGO. Besides being a prolific LEGO builder, Luca is also an excellent photographer. Today, I thought to feature some of his work as a bit of introduction for those who are not familiar with his projects.
Defender Of Hyrule I like the upgrades to this Link mech by Julius von Brunk. We last saw mecha Link way back in 2013. Well here it is about five years later and the defender of Hyrule is back with some very nice upgrades. Zelda is in good hands. BrickNerd is your source for all things LEGO and the LEGO fan community Like what we're doing here?
Are you worthy of gazing upon the mighty Talos? The Anubis-like jackal-headed humanoid figures are appropriate guards to the royal and mysterious Talos, and the choices for their colours and the background help them stay out of sight so we can focus on the big boss. And there are no photography or digital editing tricks used; Andrew has built two identical guards.
Digging deeper into the database As I'm sure you are aware Brickset is more than just a news and reviews site: we have the most comprehensive and up-to-date database of LEGO sets on the internet that can be filtered, sorted and viewed in a multitude of ways to help you keep track of your collection and abreast of product releases.
New LEGO Ludo Game Set Found There's a new LEGO Ludo game set that has been found at the Berlin LEGO Brand Store. You may not be too familiar with the name Ludo but the American adaptation of the game is called Parcheesi that was published by Parker Brothers. The set has 16 minifigures with various designs and it costs 40€.
A-MAZ-ing Last time we mentioned something about a vehicle belonging to Russia's government forces we got in trouble so today there'll be no backstory. However none is needed, because this MAZ537 8×8 soviet military truck is incredible.
A futuristic female explorer and her faithful dog-bot The ribbed hose for the skirt is one example, and the Throwbot Technic gearbox pieces are also a great addition. My personal favorite part is the design of "GD-801" the robo-dog. The harpoon gun tail and retro wheels for shoulders really give him the perfect sci-fi look.
Microscale Agrabah from Disney's Aladdin This microscale model by Koen is of Agrabah, the fictional city from the Disney animated film Aladdin, and serves as the perfect bird's eye view to the minifigure-scale scene we highlighted earlier today.
Random set of the day: Rascus Today's random set is 8784 Rascus, released in 2004. It's one of 24 Castle sets produced that year. It contains 50 pieces, and its retail price was US$8.

LEGO Jurassic World Magazine - Issue 2 In stores now, the second issue of LEGO Jurassic World Magazine. This magazine follows the usual LEGO magazine format of comic interspersed with puzzles, and also includes a double sided poster. The gift that comes with with Issue 2 is just as good as the one that came with Issue 1.
London launch of the new Harry Potter 71043 Hogwarts Castle Early this morning, Leicester Square witnessed the biggest gathering of Harry Potter fans since the final film premier was held there in 2011. Fans of LEGO and J. Rowling's famous wizard were out in force, excitedly queuing outside the store, some camping out overnight for the highly anticipated 71043 Hogwarts Castle set, which is now available.
Gigahorse It's been a while since the last 'Mad Max - Fury Road' vehicle featured here at The Lego Car Blog. This means the Elves haven't watched the movie in ages, seeing as they're only allowed to do so if they find an appropriate creation.
Cloud Strife I missed the boat on Final Fantasy VII when it first came out, but it's widely acclaimed as a classic RPG, and still fondly remembered to this day. One thing that hasn't aged as well is the blocky 3D models, but I think it gives it a certain charm, which Moko has brilliantly recreated in bricks.
Review: 75214 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter The popular animated television series dominated the LEGO Star Wars range for several years, commencing with 7669 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter and later expanding to encompass more than 70 sets.
Ludo set discovered in Berlin Brickset user blade_guy found this new set, 40198 LEGO Ludo Game, in the Berlin brand store today. It contains sixteen minifigures in eight different designs which makes it a steal at just 40€. No word on wider availability but I suspect it'll crop up at shop.LEGO.com on September 1st.
LEGO Harry Potter Castle available now! Just a quick reminder that the beautiful and massive #71043 LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle is now available for LEGO VIP members, two weeks before wider release. We talked about the set previously when it was first announced, and since then, the designer-video became available well.
DT-92 Dropship This looks like a shot out of a movie, so I'm instantly fascinated of course. Ben Smith's dropship and APC look totally ready for action on whatever distant planet they're about to descend upon. I like to think it's some sort of rescue mission, where a hostile alien encounter is about to happen.
Newt's Case So you watched the stores, tracked the delivery trucks, bribed the clerks and fought the kids at Walmart and managed to score some of the new LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures or the new sets, so now what? Well, if you're builder LEGO 7 you build a replica of Newt's case to carry Newt, Tina, Jacob and Queenie, and it's absolutely magical.
When did you last let your heart take flight? Let Peter Ilmrud show you a whole new LEGO world in this lovely little Agrabah scene.

New images of Autumn seasonal BrickHeadz This year's Halloween seasonal set, 40272 Witch, has been found in the LEGO store in Copenhagen by Frantisek S. Like the Easter and Valentine's ones, it comes with a couple of attachments for the base on 4x4 quarter-circle plates which in this case are a cauldron and a 'spooky tree' and pumpkin.
Ideas Showcase It has been two months since my last Ideas Showcase article and since that article was posted I wrote about the new look for LEGO Ideas. As always, I regret that the time between posting my Ideas Showcase articles is too long. In this article I showcase nine Product Ideas projects.

You'll probably recognise the name from the incredible 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V. Well, saabfan is at it again, and has come up with this beautiful version of an iconic little vehicle.
LEGO Creator Free Fall Tower Listing for 2018? According to Brickmerge.de, there's another LEGO Creator amusement park set that is supposedly coming out this year with the Free Fall Tower. It interesting because we've already gotten an amusement park set this summer with the Roller Coaster and they usually release once a year so twice a year will be really surprising.
The 6,020-piece 71043 Hogwarts Castle is now on sale as LEGO's biggest ever Harry Potter set Now LEGO has finally created the whole castle in a single set, using a massive 6,020 pieces to sculpt 71043 Hogwarts Castle in microscale, including 27 microfigures and 4 minifigures. The set is available beginning today for LEGO VIP members, and will be available to everyone beginning Sept.
This spacecraft will land on your phospholipid bilayer So I am surprised that the latest creation from Dwalin Forkbeard is the first time I have seen the aforementioned virus used as inspiration for a LEGO spaceship, especially given how crazy some builders can get with their spaceship designs.
Random set of the day: Airline Promotional Set Today's random set is 7214 Airline Promotional Set, released in 2004. It's one of 10 World City sets produced that year. It contains 125 pieces and 1 minifig, and its retail price was US$12. It's owned by 226 Brickset members. If you want to add it to your collection you might find it for sale at BrickLink or eBay.
Lego's Voltron Is Wonderful Proof That Fans Are Sometimes Worth Listening To Listening to what customers want is crucial for any company to survive, but in 2008 Lego took that idea farther than most by enlisting its dedicated fanbase to actually help it design new sets.
Take it easy for a little while Sit back, relax, and enjoy a drink in Heikki M's attic apartment.
10861 My first emotions 10861 My First Emotions provides a range of faces and other printed pieces that should enable them to do so. The printed parts allow children to build easily recognizable emotions: angry, happy and sad, and also the feeling, sleepy.
Space Ships I'll be honest, I haven't completely wrapped my head around this latest offering from Ochre Jelly, mostly because I have practically no knowledge of Voltron, old or new. Iain describes this series as a "LEGO love note to the amazing animated Netflix show VOLTRON : LEGENDARY DEFENDER." and having not seen it, the characters mean nothing to me.
Voltron: The most powerful ships in the galaxy LEGO's Voltron-themed Ideas set has generated a lot of excitement amongst LEGO and Voltron fans alike. But as a fan of the show myself, I found the set something of a disappointment. LEGO decided to only focus on the show's ships, not its characters. It is also based on the original 80's version rather than the wildly popular new Netflix reboot.
LEGO Toys'R'Us Geoffrey building instructions It seems like LEGO was really close to releasing the #40316 LEGO BrickHeadz Geoffrey, as they even uploaded the building instructions for a brief period. However, there has been no sign of this set even at Toys'R'Us stores that remained open.
Very Small Space When you say the word most people travel about 60 miles up in their mind and see stars and satellites. But space is just space, be it between planets, between houses or between cells. Builder Dwalin Forkbeard shows us what exploration looks like on the nano level with Invader T3 Phage.
Relive the battle of Sokovia from The Avengers: Age of Ultron in this huge collaborative display The Marvel Cinematic Universe has given us some epic spectacles in recent years, with the battle of Sokovia from The Avengers: Age of Ultron being one of the biggest. Inevitably it would take a team of super-talented builders to replicate the movie's centre piece in LEGO form; step forward SaltyLUG who amazingly have achieved just this.
Arms of the New Colossus The German tech in this game as as fascinating as the story, so I combined my love of the plot and tech with a bit of flair in my LEGO replica of a gold plated Pistole 1946, wielded by antagonist Frau Irene Engel. This handgun takes clear motifs of a Luger P08 with some modifications.
Random set of the day: Kazi Today's random set is 8722 Kazi, released in 2006. It's one of 47 Bionicle sets produced that year. It contains 25 pieces, and its retail price was US$4/£2.99. It's owned by 1527 Brickset members. If you want to add it to your collection you might find it for sale at BrickLink or eBay.
LEGO Architecture Las Vegas Review Earlier this year, it was revealed that there was going to be a LEGO Architecture Las Vegas set but as we know by now, it was delayed due to the tragedy late last year at one of the original hotels in the set.
Home isn't always where the heart is… Provokes our emotions by recreating an unfortunate and desolate abode. The dark roof reeks of an eerie feeling with spiders and cobwebs.
Golden Phage Todays creation might look like something from that box your Mom has for when her 'special friends' visit, but it in fact comes from the mind of Dwalin Forkbeard. Dwalin's mind harbours some unusual designs it seems, as a throughly weird mix of pieces has been used to create his 'T3 Phage' which is apparently a spacecraft of biological make-up.
LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures One of the most exciting releases this month is the LEGO Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts Collectible Minifigures series, with 22 characters covering both the original Harry Potter movies and the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film. Below, we will take a look at each of the characters in more detail.
Man With The Golden Gun No, not the Bond villain, this is a different villain, namely Frau Irene Engel from Wolfenstein. Nick Brick built this ornate beauty, using only official LEGO pearl gold elements. This is a build restriction that would challenge even the best builders, but Nick pulls it off beautifully.
Tink She's an absolute icon, and synonymous with all things Disney. She started every TV show and ends the fireworks show at Disneyland. She is if course Tinkerbell. This rendition by reticence is instantly recognizable and absolutely magical.
Queen Of Hearts Any time I hear "Queen of hearts" two things happen: I think of the character from Disney's animated classic Alice in Wonderland and that terrible song. I would really like to shift those things to this imposing but beautiful lady by builder LegoWyrm, I'd much rather think of her.
I am Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate Not all LEGO creations begin with a brilliant flash of inspiration. For instance, earlier this week SuckMyBrick was stumped. An attempt at building a famous celebrity using LEGO bricks didn't turn out quite as planned, so the builder turned to their flickr followers for suggestions of how to salvage the build.
Sukia the samurai finds the perfect balance between elegance and simplicity This simply built samurai girl by ItouN proves how clever piece selection can elevate even the smallest of builds to greatness.

A market where you can buy cartoony and sell realistic Originality has split the theme in question into two wider categories: cartoony style with crazy colours and rugged pseudo-realistic builds containing almost exclusively earth tones. Mountain Hobbit has a bit of both, especially noticeable in his latest creation, the Wefyrf Valley Wheat - Market.
LEGO Wizarding World Newt's Case of Magical Creatures Review Fast forward to this year and LEGO has revived the Harry Potter theme with the Wizarding World tie-in and there is finally a Fantastic Beasts set that is worth waiting for with Newt's Case of Magical Creatures. The set has 694 pieces and retails for $49.99.
LEGO Ideas Fiat 500 F Achieves 10,000 Supporters Home Â» LEGO Ideas Â» LEGO Ideas Fiat 500 F Achieves 10,000 Supporters The Fiat 500 F project by saabfan is the latest one to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. It is a detailed replication of the 1968 Fiat 500 F and it has 1,157 pieces.
Amazing Summer I don't like sand, it's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. But there's something about this summer scene by dvdliu that's really inviting, and I think I can make an exception. It makes me want to kick off my shoes and bathe myself in the wonderful summer sunshine, maybe even take a little dip in the water.
'80s Truckin' We jump back to the 1980s now with two trucks that were everywhere in Europe back then. The DAF FT95 and Mercedes-Benz 1632 could be found on every highway in Western Europe, usually pulling anonymous curtain-sided box trailers full of anonymous things.
Super Sabre This is a North American F-100D Super Sabre, the U.S Air Force's first fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight. Launched in 1954 it's hard to believe that the Second World War had ended just 9 years earlier in which planes looked like this.
Stranger Things served with LEGO and Eggo Stranger Things has been one of my favourite TV series on the screen recently with its throwbacks and references to the 80's. What makes it really stand out are the cast of characters that bring something unique and quirky to the table.
Ninjas On Parade I don't watch many parades, even the ones at Disneyland, but when I do I'm hoping to see things like this fantastic Ninjago float by builder LegoFjotten. With a little animation and some smoke effects, can you imagine the children's faces when this thing rolled down the parade route?
Review: 60197 Passenger Train Front of the box shows 60197 Passenger Train at a platform with the LEGO Train Network employee about to board the engine. There is a simple track layout and an image of the new Powered Up Hub Controller. View image at flickr. Rear of the box gives more of an insight to the Bluetooth app and also shows some internal images of the two carriages.
Return to an alternate Paris in 1889 with this sprawling steampunk scene Like all great cities, Castor Troy's steampunk Paris continues to grow. Previously we've featured Casotor's models of the Colonial Office and the Louvre, both of which feature in the layout. This time around we've been treated to a new row of buildings running alongside Notre Dame.

LEGO City Arctic mini-movies & more! They cover how the LEGO City Arctic team ends up finding the giant mammoth featured in the #60195 LEGO City Arctic Mobile Exploration set. Then, there are a couple of short product animations for the #60193 LEGO City Arctic Air Transport and the #60195 LEGO City Arctic Mobile Exploration sets.
Glorious Horus Maybe it's because I loved myths and legends as a child, or perhaps because this figure is freakin' awesome, but I can't help but be mesmerized by this rendition of the infamous Horus by LEGO 7.
Perpetually skiing through the Canadian snow There are certain building styles you can spot miles away; maybe even… Cross Country? With every creation it becomes more and more clear that Jason and Krystal of JK Brickworks are the king and queen of kinetic sculptures.
Mmmm, Burger I love cheeseburgers, it's one of my favorite foods. I could be within walking distance of a multitude of restaurants, perhaps even Michelin star rated ones, but I'd be just as happy at In-N-Out. And now of course I'm going to have to have a burger for lunch because of this awesome MOC by nobu_tary.
Cash Money If there's one thing that AFOLs are keenly aware of it's that LEGO is not cheap. And most of us are pretty OK with that, understanding that quality is worth paying for, and that the bricks hold their value. What better way to symbolize this than to build big piles of money like theworldinbricks.
Grandalf the Gray This is a late '90s Jeep Grand Cherokee, and we hate it. Well not this one obviously, as we've blogged it, but the real car. Shoddily built, boringly styled, and with an enormous wheezy V8 making about 8bhp, the Grand Cherokee is everything we dislike in a car all rolled into one.
Hunting Tigers Are you the type of discerning gentleman who requires a vehicle for hunting tigers in Africa, plundering antiquities in the Middle East, or just to keeping the peasants at bay? The Rolls Royce Condor is the vehicle for you!
All aboard the tiny train! Maxime Cheng's teeny, tiny Taiwanese train station is totally terrific.
Mom, where do babies come from? Actually, the baby myth came from the original Hans Christian Andersen tale "The Storks," and it was told to children who were too young to understand where babies really come from. One of my favorite things about this build is that the bird actually has posable wings, which swing outward.
Random set of the day: Pirates Treasure Hold Today's random set is 1889 Pirates Treasure Hold, released in 1992. It's one of 9 Pirates sets produced that year. It contains 34 pieces and 1 minifig.

A modern take on the classic space super-rover The Gorgone maintenance and rescue rig, built by Spacerunner, captures the essence of the Classic Space super-rover whilst resolutely remaining a serious contemporary creation.
Review: 76095 Black Manta Strike The recent unveiling of 76095 Black Manta Strike came as a pleasant surprise to many fans of the DC Super Heroes theme. Not only does this set include a superb selection of new minifigures, the most appealing of which is perhaps Black Manta himself, but the villain's heavily armed submarine looks excellent too.
Guybrush Threepwood Those of you who's faced the wrath of the great pirate LeChuck might recognize this face. That's right, it's Guybrush Threepwood, the main character of the amazing Lucasarts Monkey Island games, and owner of quite possibly the greatest name in adventure game history.

The only place where you can trade chocolate for dragon eggs The rich world surpasses its target audience and as Martin Harris proves, there is something for everyone in it. The Elvan sea port of Elvadion is an epic diorama showing us a less adventurous slice of life in Elvendale.
Mountaintop Shrine Grant Davis is a very well known name in the LEGO world, and for good reason - he's got a serious amount of talent. Just take a look at his latest build - Mountaintop Shrine. There are some beautifully executed techniques here, and they're all over the build.

Pangohihi powerizer, the beautiful black ray I came into The Brothers Brick contributor gig knowing I would be challenged to find and write about LEGO creations outside of my comfort zone. What I didn’t expect was how quickly I would fall down the deep rabbit hole of Bionicle creations, and I keep finding myself drawn to Logey Bear’s works, many of…
And you thought getting caught by modern day police was bad… The repetitive use of robot arms with horn pieces attached is a popular technique for organic textures and Leonid has used it to great effect here. With that, the pink highlights, a wheel piece and some Bionicle pieces, the build is actually quite simple in overall design, but I can't imagine any addition that would make it better in what it is.
Random set of the day: Imperial Star Destroyer Today's random set is 6211 Imperial Star Destroyer, released in 2006. It's one of 14 Star Wars sets produced that year. It contains 1367 pieces and 9 minifigs, and its retail price was US$99.99/£79.99. It's owned by 7108 Brickset members.

LEGO 17101 BOOST Creative Toolbox compatibility with LEGO Ninjago 70652 Stormbringer and LEGO City 60194 Arctic Scout Truck But we're not complaining! It certainly isn't a bad thing to have a whole set worth of parts left over to make your own add-ons. The in-app instructions are just like your regular paper instructions, but digital. You press a button to move on to the next step, just as you would turn a page in a booklet.
A different breed of bird The United States' Independence Day celebration may have been last month, but this feathery model from the crafty Sergei Rahkmaninoff is a high-flying patriotic tribute any time of the year. Like some of the other Bionicle models featured on TBB recently, this big bird was built as an entry for the 2018 Bio-Cup contest being held on Flickr.
Harbinger of the Hunt Can you hear the horns in the distance? Fell the adrenaline in the air? That's right, it's time for the hunt. And the last thing you want to be hunting you is this lean, mean, killing machine by rockmonster2000. He is feared by all, worshiped by many, is a relic of anicent times, and has only ever been known by one name: the Harbinger of the Hunt.
LEGO Ninjago Season 9: Hunted new trailer The story of LEGO Ninjago Season 9: Hunted feature some of our ninja friends stranded in the Realm of Oni and Dragons, where they must save the Dragons from the barbaric Dragon Hunters. We have seen the first trailer of Season 9 previously, and a couple of days ago, LEGO released a new trailer featuring the upcoming season.
Gone Fishin' I don't fish, or at least I haven't since I was a child. I also don't do boats, unless it's a Disney cruise ship. I also don't eat much fish. So I'm at a loss to explain why I love this little fishing boat by builder Know Your Pieces. Perhaps it's because of the splendid color scheme and building techniques.

Gotta build 'em all Continuing to show love for Pokémon, Mike Nieves built an adorable LEGO Eevee. Just about everything about his Eevee - the eyes, the color choices, the head tilt, and the fluffy tail - is just so darn cute. The sculpting with rounded slope bricks around Eevee's neck is particularly lovely.
Cube art, but without the Cubism Creativity and art are closely related concepts, and there are few things that promote creativity as much as LEGO bricks. As a result, LEGO fan creations often turn out to be the subtlest works of art, as builders express themselves without the pressure of being serious or conveying some deeper meaning or emotion.

White Knight It's hard to resist the urge to put on some leathers, grab my helmet and hit the trail when I look at this marvelous dirt bike by ianying616. Then I remember I don't have leathers, a helmet or anything resembling a motorcycle. I'll just admire this MOC, it's pretty rad.

With Some Clever Engineering, This Guy Made a Supersized Lego Helicopter Actually Fly Instead of relying on just his imagination to make Lego toys fly, Adam Woodworth supersizes his favorite sets and upgrades them with motors and electronics so they can take to the skies all by themselves. But with a blocky rotor that's clearly not designed for flight, can you figure out how this Lego helicopter manages to get off the ground?
Eevee One of the concepts of Pokemon is they are "pets" that you collect and care for. But in my opinion there's actually only a handful that I think I'd enjoy having around. Pets give us companionship and unconditional love, at least that's the point I think.
LEGO BrickHeadz 41612 Steve and Creeper from Minecraft Be sure to check out our other recent BrickHeadz reviews:.
Nightmares of a fallen soldier When I first laid eyes on this, I immediately felt the presence of the spine-chilling sentinels from the Matrix movies. Being organic and mechanical at the same time is twice the horror. The slime and ooze of the hungry sentinel give life to a sense of threat and danger.

The New RC Lego Batmobile Is Your Puppy's Worst Nightmare When I was a kid I always wanted to electrify my Lego creations. I wanted my Lego planes to fly, and I wanted my Lego cars to drive.

Miss Utopia I love the retro-future look of this dashing young lady by builder Kingmarshy. Meet Miss Utopia, pioneer of the future, exploring the solar system with her trusty robotic companion, GD-801. They both look ready for adventure, and for the cover of a classic 50's sci-fi pulp novel or movie poster.
A Day In Agrabah Builder Zilmrud packs a whole lot of storytelling and callbacks in a very small space. It sort of reminds me of when Genie says "Phenomenal cosmic powers…itty bitty living space". All the major characters are represented here, in a wonderful display built for his wife.
Gone with the wind This aeroplane from the very earliest days of flight by Tino Poutiainen looks the part admirably, which is say: not very airworthy.
Sumo is the greatest sport on earth I've explained elsewhere why sumo is the greatest sport on earth - it's fast, complex, and incredibly exciting.

Ferrari SF71H - Picture Special We're only at the mid-way break in the 2018 Formula 1 season and it's already more interesting than the last few seasons put together. The arrival of the 'halo' and slightly laxer penalties were the only changes versus 2017, but such consistency allows teams to make progress, and gosh was that needed.
Two for Tuesday It's a space double here at The Lego Car Blog, because… well, that's what our Elves found.

Two LEGO VIP Early Access Sets Coming September 13-30 The September 2018 LEGO Store Calendar came out a few days ago and we've had time to look it over and see what's coming up. Probably the most interesting thing for the month is the two VIP Early Access sets from September 13-30 but what could they be?
Voltron: Defender of the Universe! I've got plenty of plates and wings. So, personally, I don't need to spend $50 or $80 on those kind of sets. With that in mind, I think Voltron, at $179, is a huge bargain. I can't see how I could really improve upon it, other than a few nit-picky details.
LEGO 75219 Imperial AT-Hauler from Solo: A Star Wars Story While the first wave of LEGO Star Wars sets from Solo: A Star Wars Story largely focused on iconic standalone vehicles that, in hindsight, had less impact on the movie itself, the three sets together in the second wave released after the movie's debut depicts a single key scene in the movie.

This LEGO AT-ACT from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story strides through the palm trees Builder Ben Cossy intended to make a small scene set on the planet Scarif from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but ended up with an imperial sized project, creating this stunning AT-ACT Walker.

A nemesis worthy of the Midnight Ranger Marco De Bon has built many mecha over the years, many of which we've featured on the Brothers Brick, including the Midnight Ranger, whose nemesis we see here, called the Renegade.

Living the dystopian dream Well, according to LegoFin in 2046 you might just end up living in one of these dystopian suburbs. A collage of jumbled junk, all of course expertly built, from the resourceful layering of dishes to create the defunct electrical transformers, to the lovingly detailed generator out back.
Heisenberg Breaking Bad is one of my favorite shows of all time. Watching lowly chemistry teacher Walter White's transformation into the criminal mastermind Heisenberg was thrilling television.

Tale As Old As Time Builder MDSWIM imagines the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast with a little less romance and a lot more machine oil.

Simon's sinuous psychedelic sea serpent Can you count all the different LEGO colors used in this psychedelic sea serpent by Simon NH? We counted at least 20, but we may have missed some.

One Droid To Free Them All Many of us Star Wars nerds can agree that Solo was not the greatest movie of the franchise, however, polywen reminds us that it did bring some awesome new material to the table such as L3-37. With the sarcasm of an R2 unit, the excitement of a mouse droid, the body K-2SO, and the charisma of a gonk droid, what's not to like?

DakaRC It's seems like only the other day that Brickshelf's marthart appeared here at The Lego Car Blog with a huge remote control Technic creation.

Wasn't Me Parents out there will probably appreciate the subtle nuance of this MOC by SuckMyBrick, especially if you have two or more children.
