Awesome Scuttling Lego Strandbeest Inspired By Creations Of Theo Jansen

Allemann’s scurrying creation, complete with little minifig at the helm was inspired by the Strandbeest designs of renowned sculptor Theo Jansen.

Nathan Sawaya’s Incredible Lego Sculpture Exhibition Opens In New York

Nathan-Sawaya
Every time I think I’ve seen the absolute pinnacle of masterpieces that can be created with Lego, I’ll stumble upon a creation that once again manages to take my breath away. After seeing the epic Lego Hogwarts a few months ago, I thought to myself that it was unlikely I’d be so impressed by another piece of Lego art for a long while.

But then I saw some of artist Nathan Sawaya’s incredible Lego sculptures that are currently being exhibited at the Times Square Discovery Museum and I was awestruck! Continue Reading

Mike Stimpson Brings Star Wars Lego to Life in His Photography

toy1

If there’s one thing Mike Stimpson excels in, its taking pictures of Star Wars lego. Stimpson has been on Flickr since September of 2006, and has posted six hundred and ninety-two photographs since he first joined. This longtime Flickr user started off his account by posting a mix of nature photography, portraits of material goods, and simple lego figurines; however, the longer he stayed on Flickr, the more he’d share photographs of only lego, usually of the Star Wars persuasion. Stimpson will occasionally still share a nature shot, or perhaps a portrait of himself, but it’s become rare for him to post art that doesn’t involve legos nowadays. While his lego photography first started off as flat and generic, now his photos are detailed and funny. The lego feel brought to life in Stimpson’s photography, as he finds innovative ways to mold them in each picture he takes. Stimpson has also released his first book, Stormtroopers, We Love You, which can be purchased over on blurb for $17.25 (soft cover), $29.31 (hardcover, dust jacket), or $34.58 (hardcover, ImagineWrap).Continue Reading

Awesome Breaking Bad LEGO Video Game Concept Trailer

legobreakingbad
Check out this brilliant trailer for a Breaking Bad LEGO video game that was created by YouTuber Brian Anderson. This trailer is epic, because not only does it squeeze in plenty of Breaking Bad references, it also mimics the LEGO video game style superbly! There is something strangely amusing about watching a LEGO minifig annihilate his rivals before popping off into a trailer to cook some meth!

The LEGO video game crew have taken on lots of our favorite movies and television shows and given them the brick treatment, however, because of the adult content of Breaking Bad, it is highly unlikely that they will ever go there! Turns out that Anderson is a bit of expert at parody trailers like this one and he takes suggestions on Twitter @Brian_KA. Continue Reading
