  • 51,324 LEGO blocks + 1 virgin gamer = 1 LEGO DSi

    We kid, we kid. Sean Kenney, apparently some sort of LEGO artist who may or may not be a virgin, was commissioned to construct this massive LEGO Nintendo DSi. The entire beast weighs over 250 lbs and comprised of 51,324 LEGO blocks. To bad the screens aren’t working touchscreens cause, well, that would make it the awesomest f’n thing ever. The Rockefeller Center’s Nintendo… Read More

  • LEGO employees hand out tiny versions of themselves as business cards

    Apparently if you work at LEGO, you get a miniaturized LEGO person of yourself with your contact info on the (your) back. When someone asks for your business card, you hand them the figure. That is, how you say, outstanding. Never mind the gigantic bulge of LEGO figures in everyone’s pockets and the incessant noise that must fill every hallway at LEGO headquarters when people walk… Read More

  • Starcraft II done up LEGO style

    Normally we don’t get excited over LEGO like some other site, but we do like us some Starcraft II. Apparently at least one chap enjoys both and has spent a good amount of time constructing killer LEGO units based on the upcoming game’s units. They are impressive to say the least. Read More

  • Gigantic Stargate SG-1 LEGO ship available on eBay

    Star Wars isn’t the only franchises with LEGO-loving fans. This massive Asgard Beliskner-class battleship proves there is at least one for the Stargate world. The 5L X 6W x 2T foot model has a buy it now options of $3500 and so far – cause the auction is still up – no one has purchased it. I’m thinking it would take a pretty big Stargate SG-1 fan to purchase this… Read More

  • LEGO announces digital camera and more

    LEGO is the best toy ever made. And now you can have digital cameras, video cameras, MP3 players, walkie talkies, etc. Unfortunately the devices are not made from actual lego bricks so you can’t destroy and rebuild them. Read More

  • 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

  • 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
