Have you ever decided that you would go to the store and buy one of their new LEGO sets and then come home with doughnuts instead because those are way more affordable? Well it’s happened to me, and you can tell. The area on my body where I store fat, between my nose and my …

Finally: Breaking Bad Lego Lab

I hope you are all as excited as I am for this last season of breaking bad. I’ve never actually seen the show so I don’t know what the excitement is really about. What gets me going is the fact that once it’s over there will only be a few weeks of people talking about …

The Simpsons Lego

It’s about time that LEGO has announced that they’ll be coming out with a ‘The Simpsons’ themed set. All their little LEGO people have been yellow for years.

Looks Uncomfortable: Lego Wedding Dress

Artist Rie Hosokai has a unique view on life. Of course, she’s an artist so that’s how she makes her money. In her exhibit “Piece of Peace” Hosokai created this Lego wedding dress and perched it around a model who I’m sure found it unpleasant. Confusing? Dumfounding? That’s it, I’m going with dumbfounding.

Worth a Look: Lego Wizard of Oz

Brickworld 2013 in Chicago was held last weekend. And I missed it. The most spectacular thing I’ve seen from the show was this 10 foot long diorama of The Wixard of Oz, with a working tornado.

Choking Hazard: Curiosity Killed the Cat

The Lego version of the Curiosity Rover has reached the 10,000 vote level and can now be a real thing. Seen above? not a real thing I guess. It’s an illusion. This makes the 5th set that has received enough votes in Lego’s Cuusoo (pronounced “cuss you”) program to become a real set that they’ll …

Geek Chariot Squared: Lego Segway

Maker Simon “Burf” Burfield has built himself a Lego Segway that supports the weight of an adult. So far it doesn’t self balance and it moves at a snails pace. And not those new turbo snails either. A dying snail. Of course it is only using toy motors. When the kit comes out I’m gonna …
