  • Get tactical with a LEGO Black Ops II M8A1
    Recently, my favorite entry in the Call of Duty franchise — Black Ops II — was added to Xbox One backwards compatibility. I picked up Treyarch Studios’s 2012 vision of combat in 2025 again, and felt inspired to build my favorite rifle in the game: the M8A1, a rifle based on the real H&K XM8. (...)

  • LEGO Ideas 21310 Old Fishing Store [Review]
    While everybody is understandably excited about the massive new Ninjago City set, September 1st also brings us the latest LEGO Ideas set, 21310 Old Fishing Store. The set includes 2,049 pieces and four minifigures for a retail price of $149.99 in the US. The Brothers Brick interviewed the (...)

  • A quaint lakeside village
    This little Chinese LEGO village by Toltomeja is adorable. I love the irregular base and the squat buildings. There are some great details like the wavy patterns in the water and flippers-as-tiles roof design. But the real star of Toltomeja’s scene is that beautiful Chinese bridge and winding (...)

  • Grace and elegance of an orca whale breaching
    There are a few things that make a LEGO model stand out if executed particularly well – life in motion, and organic shapes. This build by Timofey Tkachev does both well, with this killer whale in an iconic breaching display. It is strange to know that to date, we have little knowledge on why (...)

  • If Banksy started building in LEGO
    Graffiti has been a fact of life since the pyramids were built, but you may not have ever seen LEGO graffiti before (unless you’ve been reading The Brothers Brick for a really long time). Roman says he started with the minifig street artist and then came up with the larger build. The backward (...)

  • The wild west can be a cruel place...
    Following up on a previous excellent wild west-themed creation, Brick Surgeon brings a very different, less action-packed view of life on the frontier, while keeping the building and composition style very similar. This latest vignette has a very morbid feel to it, with muted colours, dead (...)

  • The LEGO Ninjago Movie 70620 Ninjago City, 3rd largest set of all time, now available for LEGO VIP members [News]
    Following fast on the heels of our hands-on review of 70620 Ninjago City, the third-largest LEGO set of all time is now available to order from the LEGO Shop online. The set includes 4,867 pieces and 19 minifigures (by our count), and retails for $299.99 in the United States. The set will be (...)

  • Cruising the aquatic streets of Amsterdam
    Amsterdam’s 165 canals were created over the centuries to stimulate trade and transport, reclaiming land to expand the city. They continue to define the city’s landscape as a network of ‘water streets’ and in 2010 Amsterdam’s canal ring was recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site. Palixa and the (...)

  • Lynn MinMay, Macross space celebrity [Instructions]
    Lynn MinMay from the Robotech/Macross anime series is brought to life by SPARKART! in a modified Brickheadz doll. The styling emphasises the head over other features, with her eyes capturing that genuine anime sparkle. Below you’ll find the parts list and instruction guide to build your very own (...)

  • Remember the Alamo!
    The Battle of the Alamo in 1836 marked a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. This LEGO version of the Alamo by Jason Hlavenka looks just like the iconic Texas landmark as it is seen today. The detailed facade is worth taking a closer look for its clever building techniques, such as the (...)

  • Release the... snail?!
    In the old days, animals were often used in wars — most often horses, sometimes hounds and even elephants. Alexander Blais throws all the historical realism out the window with this crazy creation of an “escargoliath” with an archer tower on its shell to beseige the city of Boldiron. The animal (...)

  • Vroom vroom chugaboom
    We’ve covered our fair share of LEGO hot rods, but here’s a refreshing steampunk take on the style from Martin Redfern. The scale used allows Martin to pack loads of smart touches into this delightful dark red automobile. I particularly like the front grille, the horn, and the driver himself — (...)

  • A woodland home with Tolkien’s bear essentials
    Thorin and Company, along with Gandalf, seek the aid of Beorn after their Misty Mountains adventure — calling in at Beorn Hall, on the western borders of Mirkwood. Paul Rizzi has based his LEGO version of Beorn’s Hall on the description and illustrations from J.R.R. Tolkien’s writing rather than (...)

  • The LEGO Ninjago Movie’s largest set: 70620 Ninjago City [Review]
    The list of largest LEGO sets ever produced is dominated by Star Wars and Architecture sets, with the likes of the Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon and the Taj Mahal topping the charts. Now, though, LEGO’s home-brewed Ninjago theme is proving to be a serious contender. Having already (...)

  • What treasure lies within?
    Here’s a LEGO temple to stir the soul of an explorer. W. Navarre has covered his pyramid temple with just enough foliage and texture to create an Indiana Jones adventure spirit in me. I want to scout out these ruins for anything that glitters and sparkles. The mix of greys, and the tumbledown (...)

  • Review: 40170 Build My City Accessory Set
    40170 Build My City Accessory Set represents a considerable departure from the standard LEGO CITY range as minifigures are omitted altogether in favour of small models which are intended to furnish an urban environment. The set is somewhat reminiscent of the service and accessory packs (...)

    LEGO Ideas has posted on social media that the results of the third review period of 2016 will be published later today.

  • Something BIG is approaching....

  • Review: 31070 Turbo Track Racer
    Racing cars of all varieties are a common subject matter for Creator sets but 31070 Turbo Track Racer caught my attention as a particularly impressive example, not least because the model includes the rare 1x12x4 windscreen introduced with 10248 Ferrari F40. The gull wing door function is (...)
