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.


Behold The New 3,296-Piece Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler!

This is definitely the Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler I was looking for. It’s not as massive as the fan built vehicle that every Lego and Star Wars nerd in the world wanted, but with all its moving mechanism and seven minifigs, it’s a must have.


The Best Of Toy Fair 2014

Imagine walking into the world’s biggest toy store except that everything you see is completely brand new — and you can’t buy any of it just yet. That’s exactly what covering Toy Fair — the toy industry’s annual trade show — is like. It’s a tantalising glimpse into what kids will be begging their parents for over the upcoming year, and we’ve sifted through all the hoopla to bring you the best of the best.


Fox News Attacks The LEGO Movie

No, this is not The Onion. This is real: Fox News hates the LEGO Movie because it’s indoctrinating our kids to hate business and the free market economy, while preaching a far-left agenda. Really.


The Lego Movie Replaced A Bunch Of Popular TV Ads With Lego Versions

Why does the UK get all the good ads? As our friends at Gizmodo UK report, The Lego Movie bought out an entire commercial block last night, showing popular ads from companies that would have gone there — except in Lego. Absolutely brilliant.


The Only Better Thing Than A Giant Lego Spaceship Is A Real Spaceship

My favourite Lego constructions are spaceships — precise models that fire my imagination better than any illustration. The two-metre Lego UNSC Spirit of Fire by Mark Kelso is an example of the perfect Lego spaceship. The detail in this thing is absolutely insane. I’m not surprised that it took four (FOUR!) years to complete.


Build A Custom Garden Planter With These Lego-Like Blocks

It’s hard to argue the fact that Lego is one of the greatest toys of all time, but who says the plastic building blocks have to only be used as toys? The creators of these wonderful Togetherfarm Blocks — made from recycled food-grade plastic — are intended for use as planters and garden boxes in any shape or size you can imagine.
