    Big Ben is an amazing, iconic structure, so of course it needs to be recreated with LEGOS. Four thousand brick LEGOS to be exact. The landmark has been reproduced as a detailed LEGO Creator set.

    The Village is the Biggest Minecraft LEGO Set Yet

    Minecraft Lego sets have always been an oddity — with Minecraft long billed as the video game equivalent of Lego, putting them together seemed a little unnecessary. But, then we get Steve, Alex, and Creeper figures, and it all made sense. Since then, we’ve seen several Minecraft characters and locations in brick form, including The Mine, which […]

    The Ghostbusters Movie Is Getting Its Own Lego Set

    A Teen Built A Working KFC Vending Machine Out Of LEGO

    Is it boredom? A business opportunity? Honestly, we think the spate of branded vending machines built out of Lego bricks by one Astonishing Studios is a tongue-in-cheek sendup of pop culture and the 21st century obsession with convenience.
