Galactic Tanking We're pretty sure that the mini-figure heroes of Classic Space don't use fossil fuels to move around. Firstly, hopefully we'll be off the oil drug in the next decade or so, so future spacemen definitely won't need it, and secondly as we all know, Classic Spacemen always wear helmets and air tanks, so internal combustion engines can't be an option.

Brick-for-Tat This most excellent photo comes from TLCB favourite Pixeljunkie, who has not only built this superb Ford Model A pick-up hot rod, he's given the mini-figure driver an appropriately mean-looking tattoo too. Although the arm on which it's been inked may no longer be attached the the driver… Still, it looks cool.

LEGO Masters Australia Week 2 - Recap and People's Choice Polls We've seen another week of LEGO Masters Australia go by, and not one, but two eliminations.

Striped Horse The Lego Car Blog Elves like pretty much anything with a racing stripe as, in their minds, it adds at least 40bhp. They might be on to something too, as Ferrari's 458 'Speciale' increased the base Italia's output by around that figure when it launched in 2013 with improved aerodynamics, forged wheels, and - most importantly - a centre-stripe.

New LEGO Line for DreamWorks Trolls? Today LEGO posted a rather cryptic and unexpected picture and message on Facebook, as seen below. Speculation is that this will be a small, single run line of products like the Angry Birds one - at least to start. Trolls may get more if it's popular.

LEGO Teases Strange Event May 15 The LEGO group is getting annoyingly good at this whole "let's tease people" game they've been doing.

The Coral Hotel I don't know where my fascination with art deco came from. There's a pretty limited sample of the style here in my home town, but I've always been drawn to it. So I find this latest build from snaillad totally irresistible. I would love to stay at this hotel, as long as it wasn't pretentious and weird inside.

LEGO Duplo 10873 Minnie's Birthday Party review After the learning the critical facts that 1) pink was a favourite colour 2) Mickey Mouse programming was frequent in the household and 3) a popular game played at home was "birthday party", I figured 10873 Minnie's Birthday Party would be the way to go.

Twelve Years Of Zodiac I have to admit, Chinese New Year might be better than any other new year. Sure we stay up til midnight drinking and then make a lot of noise, but there's no dragons! And we don't have an official animal every year, which is pretty neat. Speaking of neat, builder vincentkiew has assembled this excellent collection of the entire Chinese zodiac.

Slyme wins the internet You should click on all of Fedde's content because he is no stranger to building a menagerie of little weirdos just like this one.

LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV designer-video At first glance, the newly released #75244 LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV looks similar to the #10198 LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV released back in 2009. However, the new design includes quite a few updates and upgrades that you may not notice until you check it out in detail.

Do all droids speak the same language? These two builds by Rui Miguel Anacleto of the two famous droids are some of the best-looking LEGO-built droids that I've seen at this scale. Granted, the dome of R2-D2's headpiece isn't quite round, but I like how the detailing is captured by utilising printed parts from the official versions in their individual polybags.

Honda S2000 - Picture Special Honda's S2000, built from 1999 to 2009 during the company's peak, was a gloriously unhinged machine. Its 2-litre engine made an astonishing 240bhp without turbocharging, and it took Ferrari to finally beat the S2000's highest-output-per-litre record for a naturally aspirated engine with the 458 Italia, a full decade after the S2000's launch.

Salvaging Space We managed to dodge Star Trek day on May the 4th by, well… not caring, but we do enjoy posting sci-fi builds from time to time. Looking rather like a deep sea submersible this is in fact a 'New Bedlam Industries Mining and Salvage Pod', an L-394 to be exact.

Meat Wagon The animals are finally leaving the farm! We're not sure it's for a holiday though… Still, this is the 1960s, so at least cruel and intensive meat production isn't really a thing yet. Arian Janssens is the builder behind this rather lovely DAF A 1900 DS truck and trailer combo and there more to see on Flickr.

Ghost Rider Nope, not that dreadful Nicolas Cage movie, but this rather neat ‘Ghost’ speeder bike built for the ongoing Speeder Bike competition. SweStar is the builder behind it and there’s…
