The same guy (Baron von Brunk) who made the LEGO Gameboy transformer and the LEGO NES Light Gun that I posted ages ago has gone and made a LEGO N64 with transformable controller and cartridges!

Lego paper plane folding machine


This is pretty cool, a Lego Technic construction that feeds in a piece of paper, folds it into a paper airplane, then fires the plane off to explore the skies. Or hit a wall… Or flop ineffectually to the ground… Who knows? Who cats cares?

A LEGO Catbus With Moving Parts

LEGO Catbus

Japanese LEGO builder  Tomoyuki Wakata (aka “LEGOROBO“) has designed and build a moving LEGO Cat Bus!

You might remember the Cat Bus from My Neighbour Totoro (Tonari No Totoro), it’s quite serendipitous that I should find this today as I’m going to go see the latest Studio Ghibli movie (From Up Poppy Hill) tomorrow at the Glasgow Film Festival.

Totoro Matryoshka Doll

I often find my self thinking of somthing cool and then Googling it in the vain hope that it exists, that’s how I foudn this lovely Totoro matryoshka doll by *Blackmago on deviantART.

It goes from Totoro all the way to the soot sprites, although strictly speaking Totoro should be inside the Cat Bus I’m going to allow for artistic liceence in this instance as Totoro is the main character of the film.

LEGO: Legend of Zelda

So I was looking for the original source for the above image by Wes Talbott, and I stumbled onto something wonderful. Apparently Lego have a site where people can suggest and vote on new Lego sets and collaborations. If a project gets 10,000 votes it will be submitted to Lego for review. On this page I found that there is a submission for a Lego Zelda! And it’s reached the the required amount of support to be considered by Lego!

The guy who is working on the second Lego Zelda is also working on renders for a Lego Super Mario Brothers but it’s still early days on that…

Awesome Lego Creations of H.Y. Leung

Lego 8-Bit Warp Pipe Planter
This Lego Pipe Planter by H.Y. Leung is pretty cool, it’s made to look just like a pipe from Super Mario Brothers and the blockiness of the Lego makes it look that little bit more 8-Bit.

Also check out this Lego pencil, by the looks of things it’s actually a mechanical pencil and you can write with it!

Lego #2 HB Pencil

He’s also Made a Lego paper Lantern which is semi opaque and lets light through.

LEGO Game Boy Transformer Official Parts List and Instructions

This is why it pays to pay attention to the incoming links to your blog, I noticed that someone had posted a link to the LEGO GameBoy Transformer I posted a while back on the GameFAQs forum, someone else has pointed out that the guy who made it has not posted a how to with a complete part list on Instructables.

Star Wars Characters Re-Imagined (Toys)

What do you get if you try to re-imagine the cast of the original Star Wars Trilogy as Cyber Punk Hackers? Artist Sillof has done just that. He’s also done a  2 series of steam punk, a 50’s TV science fiction serial, a Wild West, and a medieval set toys as well as Samurai and WWII sets…
