7 Iconic Computers And Consoles Reborn As Lego Microscales

I have to admit, custom microscale builds are the things that amuse me the most when I wander through in the infinite world of Lego. Miniatures are just more fun — especially when these tiny builds are actually recreations of classic gadgetry.


The Lego Movie Creators Make Hilarious Action Movie Trailer

Video: The animators of The Lego Movie created this spoof grindhouse trailer featuring Abraham Lincoln and painter Michelangelo as crime fighters in a supposed flick called History Cops. The Lego Movie hits Blu-ray next week, but one of the special features is online now and it’s a lot of fun to watch.


Why Stepping On LEGO Hurts So Much

Right up there with how the gun on the original Duck Hunt game worked, why it hurts so much to step on a Lego brick is one of the questions we’re asked the most, so it’s high time we answered it. As anyone who’s done it knows, stepping on a Lego block is something akin to being shot in the foot by a knife soaked in wasp venom. In truth, this is an inherent danger of allowing a child to exist in your home.


Secret Underground Vault Contains All Lego Sets In History

I watched The Lego Movie once again. Like the first time, I cried like a little kid. It’s a good movie, but the strong emotional reaction came from deep inside, firing the same childhood memories that The Lego Memory Lane — Leg0 HQ’s underground secret vault with all their sets — did when I visited it in Billund, Denmark.


How The Lego Movie Should Have Ended

The Lego Movie was one of the funniest, most entertaining movies to come out last year, and pretty much everyone who saw it and had a soul loved it. Everyone except Lego Superman. He had beef with how the movie ended and he thinks he should have just saved the day and be the hero.

Video: The full trailer for the special Lego episode of The Simpsons — called The Simpsons’ Lego Spectacular — is here. I hope it has the best of the Lego Movie and the best of The Simpsons in it.


This Incredible Robotic Building Set Is Like Lego Come To Life

In today’s toy-scape, robotic building sets have handily made the transition from fad to staple, and for good reason — they are awesome. But in a world where Lego Mindstorms reigns king, nothing has managed to combine function, universal appeal and straight up fun quite like TinkerBots. This could be your kids’ — and, for that matter, your — new favourite toy.


Help This Excellent Doctor Who LEGO Set Become A Reality

Doctor Who comes in many shapes and sizes — literally — thanks to the wonderfully wonderful science-magic of regeneration. What the good Doctor’s regeneration powers aren’t capable of is transforming him into bits of LEGO, which would be undesirable from a practical standpoint, but great for those of us who, well, like LEGO. Fortunately, we have enterprising people like Andrew Clark, who’s put together a great pitch for an official Doctor Who LEGO set.


The LEGO Star Wars Prank Is Upsettingly Harsh

Video: Odds are that if you’re into LEGO, you’ve spent a little too much time building big kits like that Star Wars Millennium Falcon set. What would you do if your friends then spent hours and hours taking it apart again and putting it back in the box. That’s what these guys did, and the resulting pain is upsettingly hilarious to watch.


Lego Robot With A Smartphone Brain Shatters Rubik's Cube World Record

Cubestormer 3 is a robot with just one job — to solve a scrambled Rubik’s Cube as swiftly as possible. Today, at the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham, UK, it did the task in an astounding 3.253 seconds, faster than any human or robot in the world. Just look at that thing go.
