Lego geeks around the world, rejoice! You are not alone, even though you actually are alone, in your room, playing with tiny blocks. There is now a social network for Lego aficionados, and it's called ReBrick.
This looks like an ordinary Lego construction of a retro TV but it's not. See that Superman? It flies on screen, zooming through the landscape. The screen is mechanised and made entirely with Lego. [Flickr via Brothers Brick]
The cool space fighter above was created with bricks from Lego Friends' Butterfly Beauty Shop; Olivia's Invention Workshop; Stephanie's Cool Convertible, and Emma's Fashion Design Studio. It proves one thing: feminists criticising the new Lego Friends sets just don't get it.
I'm glad Lego allows children (not to mention adults) to indulge in some escapist fantasies. But what they really need is a hard dose of reality served up in brick form. Slate's imaginary Lego Civil Unrest series is the perfect example!
This is the Addis family and their 100,000-brick Lego Christmas-themed Dalek—Dr. Who's enemy cyborgs. Every December, the Addis—Mike, Catherine and their three children, Tom, Holly and Christopher—spend hours creating something massive out of bricks.
Brothers Brick say this is the best Lego X-Wing yet and I agree. Made by Mike Psiaki's, it's amazing that he has been able to reproduce the Rebel's top star fighter with such exquisite detail, even topping Lego's official models.
Placing this Lego Millennium Falcon ornament on your tree will certainly guarantee that you'll have the coolest tannenbaum in town. Oh, and if your Wookie knocks it down, you can quickly rebuild it. Why do you think they called him Chewie?
Why yes, that is a LEGO Millennium Falcon perched inside a diorama of Docking Bay 327, the scene of Obi-Wan and Darth Vader's battle. It was created by German builder David Wagner and measures an impressive 90cm x 100cm. The project required roughly 10,500 bricks, four months, and £860 to complete.
