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…
How did I not know that Lego were releasing a slew of TMNT playsets! These looks awesome! And there are loads of them! The re-emergence of 90’s kids TV shows sexed up for modern kids is a good thing in my opinion, and apparently the new Nickelodeon TMNT series is actually quite good.
Many more pics after the break… Continue reading “Lego Ninja Turtles Playsets!”
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 image by Eduardo San Gil explains what is happening behind the scenes when you play a game of Tetris to generate the seemingly random stream of blocks. It was designed for a Threadless T-Shirt which I can’t seem to find anymore. But I did see that someone (Profound Whatever to be specific) had made a simulacrum of the image in Lego:
Not Lego, no sir Blokz candles… Sigh… I don’t know why but if you’d told me just the name I would have assumed they were Tetris birthday candles… Which apparently don’t exist… You can however have Tetris Cake which is almost as good if not better because you eat it which is the second best thing to do to something after burning it.
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?
