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.
A brainchild of Melbourne based Steve Sammartino and Romania based Raul Oaida, this life sized car is quite the Lego project. The project was crowdfunded by 40 patrons who were apparently enamored enough with the idea to drop the money on a single tweet by Steve Sammartino.
Here’s another badass representation of Pokemon, this time as Lego robot mechas. Someday, we should pit this creation of Stormbringer against Power Rangers. Just a friendly match perhaps.
The gun in the video is a 9mm MP-443 Grach, used quite commonly in the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. Now this is a scale replica of the Russian made semi-automatic weapon, built all in Lego. The detailing itself is masterful, with several elements taken care of. What sets it apart is that the gun is fairly “functional.” It doesn’t shoot, which is a bummer, but the pistol does have details like a removable clip and slide action to match the gun.

A stunningly detailed warship, the Galleon Revenge takes its name from the 1577 English Ship Revenge. The galleon is often credited with a new approach to ship design that would change naval warfare for the next three hundred years. It is probably the same glory that Brickshelf user maydayartist sought to recreate in his replica build of the Revenge.
Drawing on the stereotypes of all 50 states of the USA, artist Jeff Freisen and his daughter created a set of stereotypes. Each set is something of a tiny stereotype representing an American state, but put together, it is quite extensive. Called 50 States of Lego, the build is quite an interesting touch to things.
Tiger’s Nest, or Taktsang Palphug Monastery is a very picturesquely located monastery in Bhutan. This magnificent Lego build by Anu Pehrson shows the monastery in the glory, detail and style that is well deserved.
Vitamins design and invention studio in London has come up with a very creative way to stay organized in the shape of a wall mounted Lego calendar. The big calendar covers three months of the year, each gray stripe representing one day. Colored bricks represent assignments given to people and everyone at the office has their own minifig to show their presence on the calendar. They have made a software to synchronize digital calendar with their Lego calendar, and all that needs for it to get to action is emailing a picture of the Lego Calendar to a specific email address.
Claimed to be the world’s largest Lego snow globe, this massive Lego sculpture is on display at Covent Garden in London. Lego master builder Duncan Titmarsh made use of 120,000 Lego bricks to create the sculpture that features 14 London landmarks and has a good eye for the London skyline. It took Titmarsh 75 days to complete the giant Lego snow globe that is beautiful and detailed.
This little guy was found in Germany. Abandoned and in poor shape, the Hermann tortoise was missing a part of his front leg. Schildi the tortoise soon found himself in the care of German veterinary clinic Bird Consulting International. His injured front leg was in such bad shape that it had to be amputated at the shoulder. While the process probably saved him from further harm, it created an obvious problem with the mobility of the tortoise.
