David Windestal and his pals love to destroy stuff with their insane rocket sled. Recently, they went through the trouble of building a replica of the now-discontinued 3152 piece LEGO Super Star Destroyer, and launching it down the rail with spectacular results.
THE BEST Lego
LEGO master Sariel believes Santa Claus knows about climate change. So he made St. Nick an amphibious sleigh with the help of a thematic part – LEGO Christmas baubles. They’re not completely airtight, but they work well enough as wheels both on ground and in water.

Another fantastic LEGO kit, this 1686-piece CREATOR set lets you build a model of one of London’s iconic double-decker buses. It’s got detailed signage, plenty of interior seating on both levels, a removable roof, a spiral staircase, and little objects left behind by passengers.

LEGO makes regular size bricks, and larger Duplo bricks for little kids. But the bricks in Matt Denton’s awesome build are way bigger. He used a Lulzbot 3D printer to render all 98 pieces from a classic LEGO Technic go-kart kit, resulting in a 5x larger version of the original.
