Lego has invested $1.2 Billion over the last four years to balance 100 per cent of its energy use with that from renewable sources, and now that goal has been achieved - three years early.
To celebrate, Lego has set a Guiness World Record by building a seven and a half metre tall wind turbine out of 146,000 Lego bricks, because why not.
The world went a bit nuts last month when a company called Nimuno launched an Indiegogo campaign for Loops, its flexible adhesive-backed toy block tape — don't say the word LEGO, guys — that could be stuck to just about any surface and then have toy blocks clipped on to it. If you missed out, don't stress — it'll be in stores in Australia soon enough.
Video: Fuelled by imagination, this 27-year-old LEGO set — the Solo Trainer — flew thousands of hours in the hands of kids and collectors. But Adam Woodworth, an aerospace engineer and hardware designer at Google, wanted to see just how aeronautically sound LEGO's design really was, so he built a giant RC version of it.

On Tuesday the first Legoland Discovery centre in the southern hemisphere opened in Melbourne's Chadstone shopping centre.
The $12 million centre features a four-dimensional cinema, a detailed model of Melbourne, and over two million Lego bricks to make your own creations - but if you were considering splashing $77 on yourself for an annual pass to this brick-filled wonderland, there's some bad news coming your way.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our round up of the best toys we've seen all week. This time we have a ton of new LEGO minifigures, the most amazing Magneto cape, entirely unrelated magnetic building blocks, a spectacularly poseable Spider-Man: Homecoming figure, and yes, the best grin on a Han Solo action figure ever.
Video: The LEGO Batman Movie made enough at the box office to ensure it won't be the last superhero to get the LEGO Hollywood treatment. YouTube's Huxley Berg Studios makes a strong case for the Guardians of the Galaxy to be next, but also for every movie to be turned into two hours of talking plastic bricks.
There's something about combining LEGO and old Macintosh computers that is just irresistible for hobbyists. The latest edition to the canon is a cute little version of the Macintosh Classic from 1990 that uses a Raspberry Pi and an e-ink display to make it partially function. Best of all, you can have one on your desk because its creator has detailed how he built it.
Star Wars Celebration gets under way in Florida next week, and with it comes countless exclusives that only attendees will be able to snatch up and sell on eBay afterwards. But LEGO's special edition Celebration set could be the hardest one to get your hands on since it will only be available to attendees lucky enough to win a raffle ahead of the festivities.
Discerning information about an upcoming movie from its toyline is always a bit of a wild goose chase — especially when it comes to LEGO, which is notorious for obfuscating as much as it can to make sets. But nonetheless, this LEGO set is the closest thing we have so far to a look at Wonder Woman's big bad.
LEGO master builder ckb ckd needs to submit this meticulously detailed transforming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Megazord set to LEGO Ideas, so the rest of us can vote to have the toymaker turn it into a real set we can one day spend lots of real money on.
Longtime LEGO Star Wars collectors will remember when the original version of the Ultimate Collector Series Rebel Snowspeeder was released in 2004. The set was unfortunately retired a year later, leaving LEGO AT-ATs to roam about with impunity, but the toymaker is bringing a totally revamped version back.
