The first rule of making superhero caves and lairs should be not making them so frickin’ cool. They’d just sit around and laze in their secret, beautiful hideouts without giving two hoots about what goes on in the world.

Iain Heath on Flickr has this cool set of Big Bang Theory characters represented in Lego. Iain was considerate enough to let Sheldon have his favorite place on the couch. There’s a lot more noteworthy stuff on his Flickr stream, check it out.
Eric Steenstra made good use of Lego Mindstorms to create a full sized Gokart made out of Lego bricks. It may not be as maneuverable as the conventional karts, but this plastic one really does move around like the real deal and can carry around a rider weighing 88 pounds.
The life-sized Iron Man sculptures is the work of Evan Bacon, an impressive Lego artist at the age of 14. The six feet tall sculptures has been made out of 18000 bricks, and weighs 80 pounds. The arc reactor, palms and eyes on the sculpture light up for effect. The sculpture was on display at the recent Brick Fiesta 2012 in Austin, TX and was a winner of the People’s Choice Award.
It is the perfect time to create Lego replicas of the Olympic Stadiums. Lego commissioned artist Warren Elsmore to build a Lego version of the Olympic Park to highlight the ingenuity of Lego bricks. It took 300 hours spread over three weeks and 250,000 Lego bricks to build this stunning replica of the Olympic park.
