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!
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?
There is a Proposal over at LEGO’s suggestion site for a LEGO Macross (Robotech) Veritech VF-1 Valkyrie complete with armour!
The Fricking thing actually transforms!
Has an arsenal of weapons:
And just looks pretty damn cool…
Here is a video of it transforming:
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.

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!
Someone also has designs up for a Lego The Guild:
and Lego Final Fantasy:
UPDATE: THERE ARE TWO LEGO ZELDA PROJECTS ON THAT SITE!
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…
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!
He’s also Made a Lego paper Lantern which is semi opaque and lets light through.
If that’s not cool enough for you check out his other works by clicking on the thumbnails below:
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.
I’ve never been a fan of Gundam, not because I dislike it for any reason, I’ve just never watched it, I do however like Neon Genesis Evangellion, and who doesn’t like Lego? This model combines all three of the above, with a hybrid Eva/Gundam mech made out of Lego. How can any sane geek not love that?

UPDATE (27-06-2012 or 06-27-2012 depending on which side of the Atlantic you happen to be on): This has recently been posted on GameFAQs and someone there pointed out that there is a Instrubtable giving you the parts list for this. I’ve also blogged about that.
If you wanted to condense my childhood toys into a single artefact you’d struggle to beat this creation by Julius of MocPages. It’s a Nintendo GameBoy made out of Lego that is also a Transformer! Based roughly on Sound Wave the detail on this piece is immense, the the batteries turn into his guns, and the Tetris Cartridge actually transforms into something that looks an aweful lot like Lazer Beak.
What’s more it’s not his only Nintendo Transformer made out of Lego, he’s also made a Nintendo Light Gun Transformer entitled PlasmaShock this looks like it’s based on the Decepticon Jet toys (Why not Megatron?):
I had ask Google who the hell Fergie was, apparently she’s famous. Anyway whoever she is she has wore a dress made almost entirely out of Lego to Nickelodeon’s annual Kids choice awards this year. That has to count for something.
