Very impressive creations have been made using Lego. Imagine the things that could be made if every Lego brick ever made was to be used to create buildings and architecture like we know it today. Around 472 billion Lego pieces have been made from 1948 through 2013. Real estate website Movoto imagined all that could be built with these bricks.
One insanely detailed and amazing project, this is the recreation of the battle of Helm’s Deep from Lord of the Rings. The build by Rich-K and Big J is about 90 percent complete, and manages to look epic even with that tag of being “unfinished.” Setting the scene for the battle, 150,000 bricks have gone to build the walls, towers, ladders and the general landscape, while 1700 minifigs take their roles as elven, human and orc armies engaged in battle.
Volkswagen Camper has quite a name for itself as a versatile vehicle, but also for all the love it received from the hippy lifestyle. Had the empire come under the influence of this thought, we would see things going a wee different way, like the AT-AT VW where the Rasta soldiers of the empire take their time off to get away from all the war and find the love. AT-AT-VW is the MOC by LEGO Design Lead Craig Callum.
The Netherlands have received a new monarch as King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima ascend to the throne. To commemorate the occasion, Paul Toxopeus created these impressive portraits of the new King and Queen. Given that Legos are working as the pixels and the color palette, that the portraits are easily recognizable is quite a feat.
The alien like landscape you see here is the “City of Odan” built by Mike Doyle with about 200,000 Lego pieces and a good 600 hours of his time. The diorama goes five feet high and six feet wide, and was constructed as a city that serves as an example of a peaceful contact between extraterrestrials and a highly spiritual race of humans.
These Lego Minifigs perfectly look their part, but except from being made out of plastic, they’re made of deliciousness and intend to make things delicious. Cake Power Cakes made them by combining cake crumbs and buttercream and pressing it into a pan. The cylindrical minifigs were then cut out of this mix, stacked with modeling chocolate and then covered in melted yellow candies.
Built by Simon Burfield, this Lego Go-Kart runs on 16 XL PF motors powered by 8 rechargeable power functions battery packs. The steering is controlled via NXT and 20 Lego Exo Force wheels help it move around.
