  1. LEGO Is Releasing a Fan-Created 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters Playset (Slime Not Included)

    Listen! Do you smell something? It's super-amazing LEGOs!

    LEGO came, LEGO saw, and LEGO kicked ass. Today, LEGO CUUSOO announced the results of their fan-creation competition, and though there were lots of great finalists—including a female mini-fig set I'd still love to see—only one CUUSOO finalist is making it to mass-production today: the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Playset!

  2. This Slow-Motion Rain of LEGOs is Your Surprisingly Soothing Way to Start the Morning

    The Slow Mo Guys are returning to their childhoods this week, if only to blow up whatever they find there -- and film it in slow motion, of course. I mean, that is kind of their thing. While the duo's initial experiment -- detonating a picturesque LEGO house, wookiees and all -- doesn't go exactly as planned, the frustration it induces results in an unlikely work of art. So if you've ever wondered whether a box full of children's building blocks being blasted into the sky and then raining down in dreamlike slow motion is kind of beautiful, this is your chance to find out. (Spoiler alert: it totally is.)

  3. How To Build With LEGOs in Google Chrome

    Google wants you to be able to do practically everything in a browser, specifically in Chrome. Chrome has already effectively eliminated the need for third-party email and calender apps, even word processors if you're comfortable enough with Google Docs. Now, they're making a new push to make your dedicated LEGO building client (LEGO Creator?) obsolete with the new Build with Chrome website. You can now play with LEGOs in Chrome, and you'll never have to fish around for a missing 1-by-1 piece ever again.

  4. Check Out This Scale LEGO Model of the Back to the Future DeLorean

    Not all LEGO builds have to be massive to be impressive, even if that usually helps. This LEGO DeLoreon, for instance, is not full-sized; it's not even what you might call "large." Instead, it's a 1:15 scale model of the real deal, the real deal of course being the time-traveling one from Back to the Future. Constructed by Alex Jones, AKA, Orion Pax, the build is made completely of standard LEGO parts, but a custom silver paint job. And yes, the wheels can go into hover mode.

  6. Minecraft LEGO Pre-Orders Now Open

    Minecraft and LEGO were meant to be together pretty much from the start. After all, how could you have one without the other?That being the case, it was great news when official Minecraft LEGO were announced to be on the way through LEGO's CUUSOO system. They're not here quite yet, but pre-orders have opened, and you can pick up a 480 piece chunk (4 chunklets) complete with Steve and a creeper for $34.99.

  7. LEGO Taxidermy is a Minimalist Triumph

    I've always believed in the old adage that less is more; there's something so satisfying about creating something cool and recognizable out of as little actual material as possible. Enter LEGO Taxidermy by David Cole. Made out of just a few dozen assorted pieces of LEGO, Cole's taxidermies are at once immediately identifiable and as simple as one could imagine. Cole sells kits for the deer, a bear, and a fox on his online shop, but due to the fact that he has to source the pieces from a number of different shops, the orders take a while to fulfil and are a little on the expensive side, but cool is priceless.

  8. Terracotta LEGO Street Art

    Nothing like a little staggeringly 3D-looking street art to brighten up your day and make you wish that you were talented at things other than wasting time on the Internet. Have no fear: I've got you covered. Above is a stunning street-chalking done by Planet Street Painting for the Sarasota Chalk Festival. Head on past the jump to check out the initial wireframe.

  9. 8 Foot Long, 43,000 Piece LEGO Star Destroyer Will Blow You Away

    We've covered some pretty cool LEGO creations in the past, but I'm not sure that any of them can hold a candle to this behemoth, 43,000 piece, 8 foot long, 180 pound, Venator Class Star Destroyer built by Iomedes. Now, this isn't the first LEGO Venator Star Destroyer ever built. In fact, this is a deliberate replica of a model build by Erik Varszegi years ago. The difference is that that original model, while made primarily of LEGOs, was also screwed and glued. This interpretation is held together by nothing but LEGOs. Whether or not Iomedes will be able to move the beast from its current resting place and where it may ultimately end up are anybody's guess, but whatever the case, that is one amazing, amazing, amazing LEGO construction.

  10. LEGO Predator Bust is Intricate, Angry-Looking

    At this point, there is a pretty established tradition of building intricate, awesome things out of LEGOs, sans instructions. Despite the fact that this is nothing new, this Predator bust by Shawn Snyder might be the most awesomely-detailed, actually-kind-of-scary LEGO bust on record. Not only does it have eyebrows that are slanted angrily and all the appropriate fangs, but you'll also notice that its collection of skulls all appear to belong to different species of animal. Now if I can just find an awesome LEGO recreation of the alien from Alien, complete with inner-mouth, my life will be complete. More pictures after the jump.
