  • Star Wars diorama built from 60,000 LEGO blocks

    Believe it or not, I actually feel that it IS possible to over-report on LEGO-centric phenomena. However, this 60,000-piece LEGO diorama portraying the epic battle at Hoth is a miracle of modern block-building. Read More

  • Lego Terrorist will slay the man-child in you

    Just in time to be horribly inappropriate, some folks have discovered BrickArms, a company that makes cute little Lego men with realistic weapons. Here we have the White Bandit (not, not a terrorist) who is very angry and carries a rifle, what looks like a Luger, and some grenades. Not offensive enough for you? Try the SS man. Read More

  • BrickCon Flickr set

    There are people that played with LEGO bricks and then there people that still play with LEGO bricks. This Flickr pool of last weekend’s BrickCon is for the latter. Read More

  • Lego MMO developers relying on hardcore Lego fans' expertise to create authentic experience

    Oh this made me laugh. The developers behind the upcoming Lego-themed MMO, Lego Universe, want to make the game as authentic as possible. Fair enough, sure. But how do they ensure that? One method: by using a team of more than 50 die hard Lego experts who essentially function as hired consultants. “More this, less that.” Et cetera. I never was a Lego fan growing up (more of a TMNT… Read More

  • Another LEGO Batman character revealed!

  • Amazing LEGO Olympic scenes

    The Hong Kong LEGO User Group used some 300,000 LEGO blocks and 4,500 LEGO people to recreate some amazing scenes and venues from the Beijing Games. Hit the jump for some views of the Water Cube, table tennis, beach volleyball, and more… Read More

  • Automated friendship bracelet maker made of LEGOs

    When I was in the 8th grade, friendship bracelets were all the rage — so much so that I started my own bracelet-making business. I would make them in study hall and then sell them for about 2-5 bucks. Demand got so high I ended up talking other kids into making them for me (I would pay them $1 a bracelet). Doing this got the attention of The Man and I had to shut down my little… Read More

  • NXT robot solves Rubik's Cube without a PC

    When I was a boy, Legos were good for having crash-em-up derbies (Instructions: You and your friends take a big green board each and build cars. The owner of the Legos gets all the good wheels. Crash the cars into each other. Repeat.) Now they have the damn things solving Rubik’s Cubes like some sort of manic hog-skinning machine that needed some time off. The full instructions and code… Read More

  • Homebrew Wiimote-Controlled Lego Robocar

    From the “Preposterous Headline” Dept:
    This looks like fun. This guy has put together a C# program that takes input from a Wiimote and passes it to a Lego NXT car with a wireless interface. The program looks pretty powerful and customizable and the car certainly responds right (although there is a little lag). I’d like to think these are the projects I’d do if I were… Read More

  • Video: ‘LEGO Batman’ trailer

    Here’s some footage from the LEGO Batman game that’s set to hit various platforms in September. You can play as the good guys or the bad guys. Speaking of bad guys, Killer Moth and Mad Hatter were recently revealed to be part of the game. Never heard of them, but I did have a killer moth destroy a pair of my corduroy pants a few years ago, so I’m guessing the Batman version is… Read More

  • It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?


    BBG’s Joel Johnson got a few hours with Syd Mead, the designer of the Spinner car in Blade Runner. Mead received a Lego model of his car at a design summit in Billund and he let Joel play with it. Mead proceeded to give Joel the Voight-Comp test and discovered that Joel was a pleasure model.

  • LEGO-like calendar can be reshaped any which way

    This product is not for me. Since the relatively widespread adoption of electronic calendars, I’ve sworn off old-school calendars for good. I was the guy with the calendar hanging on the wall that showed the same month for three years straight. Apparently, pulling a thumbtack out of the wall, flipping a page, and then reinserting the aforementioned thumbtack back into the wall was far… Read More

  • Rad: World's tallest Lego tower

    Sure it’s got guy-wires keeping it from toppling and killing little Lego men, but this very tall tower is just neat. It’s nearly 100 feet tall, making it by far the tallest Lego tower ever made. It’s in England, and it has something to do with Vikings, and it’s all colorful, and it’s tall. Maybe this signals a new trend: Legos for World Records. I’m into… Read More

  • First the iPhone gets Spore, now it gets Legos. What's left?


    Spore, the ultimate sandbox video game, and Lego, the ultimate sandbox brick-based toy, are now both coming to the iPhone. It’s only a matter of time before Lincoln Logs and Candyland are part of its expanding game empire as well. Man, the iPod Touch is going to start cutting into the DS’s market share. Did anyone see that coming? The site’s interface is pretty slow and… Read More

  • Video: New Lego Batman game looks fun, gets the Batman feel just right

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf OK, this actually looks great. I’m not normally a fan of the Lego games — not because they’re not good, I just don’t get into them — but this makes me want to play. Hardcore. Read More

  • Lego iPod docks, speakers, MP3 players: Daily WTF

    I’m not that into Lego to really get charged up about these odd little Lego-alike accessories, but if you have $39.99 for this dock or $16.99 for a Lego iPod speaker and/or $46 for a
    mini Lego MP3 player, feel free to head over to homeloo.com and spread the wealth. Products Read More
