You can get fantastic air supremacy in plastic, if you can get hold of an aircraft like this one. Built by Dutch builder Red Spacecat, the AV-24B Seahawk is inspired by the AV-8B Harrier II jump-jet and AH-64 Apache helicopter. It may not be real, but the Seahawk packs quite a punch in its description. It is imagined as a military VTOL gunship that comes with such an array of customized weapons, it could be a force to reckon with.

Elsa’s stunning snow palace from Frozen has a chance to be real, with a little help from Lego. The set was cooked up by Lego Cuusoo user Fohzen. His daughter requested one, and he realized it didn’t exist, so off went the man making a Lego set for one of the biggest hits of last year.

Apparently, there aren’t a great many things you cannot do once you attach Lego pieces the right way. That said, checkout this cool, fully functional Lego keyboard created by Jason Allemann. He used the membrane of an old keyboard as a guide for the new Lego keyboard, then with a mix of the classic plastic bricks and Technic bits, Jason got himself a fully functional keyboard.
A Lego minifig travels and takes pictures in this simple and engaging series by Andrew Whyte.
Album art has often been remarkably good, and good music seems to go very well with good album art. The blog Lego Albums has a collection of album covers made in Lego. It’s a bit of a damper that these aren’t actually made out of Lego, but digitally created to mimic the effect. Which, we guess is good enough, as creative ideas go.
Masters who created the beautiful paintings we call classics had skills worthy of their name, and a palette of colors and shapes to follow the strokes of the brush. Recreating those masterpieces with 8-bit style pixels would be tough enough, but doing that recreation with Lego bricks is surely what deserves attention.
