LEGO Lord of the Rings — Then King of the Golden Hall

LEGO builder Cameron Wilson has constructed this lovely version of Edoras (King Theoden’s capital in Rohan) from The Lord of the Rings and it’s a wonderful bit of work. I strongly recom­mend you click through to Wilson’s post where he has a bunch more detail photos (including inside the hall where Gandalf faces down Worm­tongue) and a surprising easter … Continue reading LEGO Lord of the Rings — Then King of the Golden Hall

LEGO Game Of Thrones — House Stark Sigil

It’s becoming almost passé to do artistic vari­a­tions on the sigils of the various houses from Game of Thrones. But this one is worth bringing to your atten­tion for a few reasons. First of all it’s LEGO and that makes every­thing cooler. But also it’s extremely well executed as a poster. The image takes advan­tage of the … Continue reading LEGO Game Of Thrones — House Stark Sigil

LEGO Star Wars — Darth Malgus Lands On Hoth

Christoffer Östberg or East Moun­tain as he goes by on Flickr produces LEGO imagery that can only be described as beau­tiful. They’re also wonder­fully geeky and Star Wars related which is a bonus. It’s the atten­tion to detail which puts these photographs over the top though. Sure they’re using some good LEGO Star Wars models, but look … Continue reading LEGO Star Wars — Darth Malgus Lands On Hoth

LEGO Sci-Fi — The Settlement on Epherna 1

Here’s a creative use of the micro-scale building style to present a whole city (and not just any city but a futur­istic space port) in a tiny space. Tim Clark has done some great work with this build giving a real sense of a big, busy city complete with build­ings and a biodome. And then he’s topped it off with a couple of micro-scale … Continue reading LEGO Sci-Fi — The Settle­ment on Epherna 1

LEGO Princess Bride — The Final Duel

Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.Count Rugen: Stop saying that! A movie classic skill­fully recre­ated by a group of nine LEGO builders as part of a 14 vignette collab­o­ra­tion depicting scenes from The Princess Bride. This one is called The Final Duel and of course shows us Inigo … Continue reading LEGO Princess Bride — The Final Duel

LEGO Superheroes — Green Arrow

Obvi­ously LEGO have been selling a variety of super­hero sets for some time now under license from both DC Comics and Marvel Comics. But this build by Nicolas Picot is some­thing very different and oh so impres­sive. For a start it’s about 20 inches in height and if that’s not enough there are 44 points of artic­u­la­tion which … Continue reading LEGO Super­heroes — Green Arrow

LEGO Spaceships — Reckless Abandon

Space­ships are cool. LEGO is cool. LEGO Space­ships are…  kinda neat. This build by Chris Maddison is a very distinc­tive and rather alien looking space­ship that he calls the Reck­less Abandon. Chris has used the classic LEGO Space color scheme and the center­piece light brick (which gives it that alien feel) the result is an extremely stylish fighter … Continue reading LEGO Space­ships — Reck­less Abandon

LEGO Architecture: The White House (21006) 28% Off

I love the LEGO Archi­tec­ture series (as does my son Jamie). These micro-scale builds are not only remark­ably accu­rate to the building they are based on, but they come with a cool booklet that gives a lot of back­ground infor­ma­tion about the building. Set 21006, The White House is a good example of what the Archi­tec­ture series is … Continue reading LEGO Archi­tec­ture: The White House (21006) 28% Off

LEGO Bible — And The Walls Came Tumbling Down

Jericho. No, this is neither the wrestler nor the tv series. We’are actu­ally refer­ring to the Bible here. At first glance this might seem like a rather boring build. After all it’s just a grey wall. But take a moment to look at it. The way the tumbling bricks are posed, frozen in motion, is both artful and clever. … Continue reading LEGO Bible — And The Walls Came Tumbling Down

LEGO Superman

LEGO minifig­ures are cute, but some­times you want to go bigger when you’re building a figure. Which is exactly what Riccardo Zangelmi has done here. Presenting The Last LEGO Son of Krypton… Kal-El or Superman. This doesn’t qualify as a full statue and so by neces­sity it’s mini­malist on the details but the figure is instantly recog­nis­able and … Continue reading LEGO Superman

LEGO Dungeons & Dragons — The Beholder

The Beholder is one of the most iconic (do you see what I did there?) monsters in Dungeons and Dragons. Essen­tially it’s a giant floating eyeball with a big mouth and a bunch of tenta­cles (also with little eyes) attached to it. It was first intro­duced to D&D all the way back in the Grey­hawk expan­sion in 1975 and unlike so … Continue reading LEGO Dungeons & Dragons — The Beholder

LEGO History — Rorke’s Drift

As well as all the cool fantas­tical stuff that people come up with and the archi­tec­ture builds, you also get some histor­ical dioramas built out of LEGO. Like this recre­ation of the battle of Rorke’s Drift in which approx­i­mately 150 British and Colo­nial troops held out against 3,000 — 4,000 Zulu warriors. An impres­sive feat by anyone’s stan­dards … Continue reading LEGO History — Rorke’s Drift

LEGO Ideas Research Institute Set Revealed

Well this is cool. LEGO have not only released some images of their Research Insti­tute set for the LEGO Ideas range but they had Alatariel (the designer of the concept for LEGO Ideas) present and review it. As with all LEGO Ideas concepts it has under­gone some adap­ta­tion from orig­inal presen­ta­tion to actual execu­tion, but it … Continue reading LEGO Ideas Research Insti­tute Set Revealed
