THE BEST Lego

LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

The largest official LEGO set ever features a whopping 7,541 pieces, which come together to form an insanely detailed model of the Millennium Falcon. Ultimate Collector Series #75192 looks like an incredible challenge for any Star Wars or LEGO fan.

Jumbo LEGO Go-Kart

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.

LEGO fanatic Chairudo shows off an amazing build – a working 90,000 piece, 21 foot-long roller coaster made to look like the old wooden El Toro coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure theme park. More photos on Flickr.

Death of a Notebook

Death of a Notebook

A group of minifigs go from master builders to master destroyers in animator Reto Hochstrasser’s amazing stop-motion short, in which LEGO anarchists demolish his laptop using fire and explosions. Forget Batman and Ninjago, we want The LEGO Destruction Movie.

DIY LEGO Alien Xenomorph Bust

DIY LEGO Alien Xenomorph Bust

At the 2017 Bricks Cascade, LEGO enthusiast Blair Archer shared his amazing Xenomorph bust with Beyond the Brick. Blair has been working on it for 3 years, mostly looking for certain parts or waiting for them to exist and fit his vision.

LEGO Space Shuttle Concept

LEGO Space Shuttle Concept

Unlike other LEGO space shuttles, KingsKnight’s proposal is a 1:110 model, the same scale as the recently released LEGO Apollo Saturn V set. The design includes the tank and boosters, the Canadarm, a satellite, swappable decals, and seven microfigures.

LEGO My Old Basement Kit

LEGO My Old Basement Kit

LEGO master Chris “PowerPig” McVeigh makes lots of awesome custom kits, but our favorite is this one, which includes a classic gaming console, a boxy old TV set, and lots of tiny accessories. If you prefer work to play, check out his sweet My Old Desktop kits.

LEGO in Real Life

LEGO in Real Life

BrickBros Productions takes a page out of animator PES’ book with this fun stop-motion short, in which real-world food items are replaced with their LEGO counterparts. We’ll have our bricks over easy with bacon.

LEGO Anatomini Concept

LEGO Anatomini Concept

Everything is gruesome! LEGO Ideas member Stephan Niks came up with a proposal for a unique, fun and educational set. His Anatomini is a 10:1 minifig shell with organs and a skeleton to scale. The skeleton is fully poseable and can stand on its own.

LEGO-Building ASMR

LEGO-Building ASMR

Dr. T ASMR sends a pleasant tingle down our spines as he opens up a LEGO Star Wars kit and makes as many crinkly, crunchy, tappy, and whispery noises as possible. As with all ASMR videos, it’s best enjoyed with headphones on.

LEGO Glow Zone

LEGO Glow Zone

Beyond the Brick’s Joshua Hanlon met up with builder Carter Baldwin at Philly Brick Fest to check out the section dedicated to glow-in-the-dark creations. Seeing these constructions under black light gives a whole new dimension to LEGO that we never knew existed.

LEGO Minecraft: The Mountain Cave

LEGO Minecraft: The Mountain Cave

At nearly 8 lb. and made of 2,863 pieces, The Mountain Cave is LEGO’s biggest Minecraft set yet. It packs a ton of features and figures, including a track and an elevator for its two minecarts, a light brick, a slime with two mini slimes inside it, and Steve and Alex minifigs.

LEGO Statue of Liberty

LEGO Statue of Liberty

To launch the Smithsonian’s new wing, The Nation We Build Together, LEGO Master builder Erik Varszegi designed a 9 foot-tall replica of Lady Liberty, using 25,375 bricks. The 1/32-scale sculpture will be on display at The National Museum of American History through 2017.

Largest LEGO Ball Contraption

Largest LEGO Ball Contraption

Beyond the Brick met up with builder Tom Atkinson at Brickworld Chicago 2017 for an extensive tour of this seemingly endless LEGO machine built collaboratively by LEGO fans who each worked on their own modules which linked together. That ferris wheel was amazing.

The LEGO Movie and Fan Films

The LEGO Movie and Fan Films

The LEGO Movie looks like it was made with LEGO, but it was actually almost entirely computer animated. Animation studio Animal Logic looked back at films made by LEGO enthusiasts and came away with one lesson: respect the toy’s physical attributes.

LEGO Saturn V Modded

LEGO Saturn V Modded

After watching Adam Savage and his pals assemble the new LEGO Saturn V rocket, we already wanted one. But JK Brickworks went and made it even more droolworthy, adding LEDs to the engines, as well as a speaker that plays sounds from NASA’s Apollo missions.

LEGO Drift Wagon

LEGO Drift Wagon

LEGO Technic builder Attika created this awesome open-frame 4-wheel drive, Android-controlled car tuned for mad drifting action. It’s got a working drivetrain, brakes, lights, and looks like a blast at to speed. Action footage at 3:30, and lots of build images on Flickr.

Tested Builds the LEGO Saturn V

Tested Builds the LEGO Saturn V

Adam, Will and Norm got their hands on the awesome LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V scale model rocket a bit earlier than us mere mortals. Watch them unbox, methodically knoll parts, and build the set. Assembly and story time start at 2:25.

LEGO Porsche Crash Test

LEGO Porsche Crash Test

One of the cooler LEGO Technic kits out there is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s simply stunning. But that didn’t stop the guys from c’t Magazine from taking theirs and smashing it into a wall, with the help of the German automotive safety group ADAC and their crash test facility.

LEGO Dinosaur Skeletons

LEGO Dinosaur Skeletons

LEGO Ideas contributor Mukkinn designed this series of neat fossilized dinosaur statues which would let you have your own miniature natural history museum on your desk. Show your support, and let’s see if we can get LEGO to put them into production.

Happy Little Bricks

Happy Little Bricks

SillyBrickPics custom-made LEGO minifig set was clearly inspired by artist Bob Ross. It comes complete with his curly perm, a painter’s palette, easel, canvas, and jars of paint. We can already imagine him teaching the joy of painting to other minifigs in hush tones.

LEGO Buster Sword

LEGO Buster Sword

We’ve seen a deadly replica of Cloud’s weapon of choice. Here’s a life-size replica that’s less threatening but still backbreaking. ZaziNombies used about 2,000 LEGO pieces to make this 6ft, 8lb replica. Someone teach him how to hold it.

LEGO Xenomorph Kit

LEGO Xenomorph Kit

Flynn’s Arcade shows off a nifty custom LEGO set from One More Brick, which lets you easily build an awesomely creepy model of a xenomorph from Alien. It comes complete with a LEGO facehugger too, though it looks like a bit like a Dreamcast that sprouted legs.

Mechanical LEGO Skull

Mechanical LEGO Skull

One of the creepier and more awesome mechanised LEGO builds we’ve seen comes from Darryl Friesen aka Baronworks, who created this chomping sugar skull inspired by the Day of the Dead. The noise its 100 spinning gears only add to the effect.

Working LEGO Printer

Working LEGO Printer

JK Brickworks shows off another awesome mechanical build – a fully-functional printer/plotter that uses a pen to draw words and images on a sheet of paper that it feeds using the wheels from a LEGO vehicle, and a Mindstorms’ EV3 controller.
