Finally: LEGO Ghostbusters Set is Coming

Ghostbusters LEGO

Bill Murray’s greatest wish has been granted, assuming that what he wants the most in the world is a LEGO Ghostbusters set. This has been a long time coming, seeing as how the movies were released three decades ago. In fact, the franchise’s 30th anniversary was what prompted Brent Waller to put together a Ghostbusters-themed set, which included minifigs of the Ghostbusters, their headquarters, and of course, the Ectomobile.

Waller posted his project up on Lego’s fan site CUUSOO, where it easily gained the support of over 10,000 other Ghostbusters fans and LEGO lovers. Since it reached the 10,000 mark, LEGO checked the set out and gave it their seal of approval.

This Animated LEGO Joker Funhouse is Just Awesome

Joker Funhouse

The Joker’s funhouse is more madness than fun, but what else would you expect from the Joker aside from his signature scares that go from funny to deadly in an instant? Master LEGO builder Paul Hetherington decided to take on the Joker’s funhouse for his next project and the results are nothing short of amazing.

The most impressive part? Some parts of the funhouse are actually animated, from the googly eyes and gated entrance to Robin and Batman, who’s twirling by the entrance non-stop.

You can check out a gallery of various views of the funhouse here. A video of the funhouse in motion is available after the break.

Lego Car Created From 500,000 Lego Pieces With A Speed Up To 20mph

lego-car

If you’re looking for something truly amazing and creative, take a look at this Lego car created by Steve Sammartino and Raul Oaida using 500,000 pieces of Lego and 256 pistons. The thing which makes it totally awesome is the engine, which is also made of lego pieces with four orbital engines and runs on air, at a maximum speed of 20-30 miles per hour. It could go faster, but the creators decided not to push the limits as there’s a risk of ‘Lego explosion’, which is totally justifiable. Interestingly, the Lego car was created on Romanian shores and was shipped to Melbourne. How awesome can it be? If you ask me, I simply love the creativity of both Steve and Raul, who met belong to different parts of the world and met on the internet. Find out more details about the project at Super Awesome Micro Project link below.

LEGO Brick Ring Is Quirky, Not Altogether Useful

brick-lego-ring

It’s not that rings should be useful or anything; they’re adornments after all. But since the 2011-old LEGO Brick Ring does come with two LEGO-sized protrusions you’re going to be tempted to attach LEGO pieces to it. And that’s when you start “using” the ring, only there isn’t much you can actually do with it other than to perch bricks and Minifigs on it, to your heart’s content. That’s enough to sell us on it though, especially given the reasonable $41 price tag for a piece described as “bronze-infused stainless steel with visible print lines and a rough feel.” To be honest, it looks really nice and the pictures don’t do it justice, so hit the jump for a video to get a better idea what it looks like.

LEGO Is Going To Make Watches For Adults

LEGO-watches

Even though they already have a line of watches for kids, LEGO has announced they’ll complement that range with one made for grown-ups. Now everybody knows there’s no such thing as grown-ups, but only kids wearing big boy pants. So we wouldn’t be surprised to see some vigorous interest in these. Ranging in price from $85 to $185, these watches will have the added benefit (much like the ones made for kids) of having wristbands that disassemble and mix-and-match with those of other LEGO timepieces. This means that if you own more than one, you can further customize it… though if you get to the point where you’re buying two of these just so you can screw around with the wristbands, you clearly fall in the “too much money” category. Or “serious, serious LEGO aficionado.”

Epic LEGO Mosaic of Video Game Characters

LEGO Mosaic

This is an awesome LEGO mosaic featuring characters from some of the most popular video game franchises ever, including Super MarioPokemon, and The Legend of Zelda. It was created using over 10,000 individual bricks (some of which are very rare, according to its maker) with a total value of about $2,190. The mosaic apparently took over six months to complete, and I have to say all that effort was well worth it because this thing looks epic.

The good news? It’s been put up for sale because its owner is moving to France for work and obviously won’t be able to take the mosaic with him. He’ll also be giving the proceeds from the sale to his friend so she can send her class to Africa. Sounds like a neat cause. The bad news? It’s priced at $4,780.88.

Hit the break to check out a couple of close-up shots of the mosaic.Continue Reading

Record-Breaking LEGO Tower is 11 Stories High

LEGO Tower

Did you ever attempt to build the tallest LEGO tower in the world when you were a kid? I did and I always thought I did a pretty good job…until now. If you thought you did, too, then you should take a look at what the students and teachers from Dickinson High School in Milltown built.

The school’s community didn’t just build a tower that was several feet high; instead, they built a LEGO tower that’s 11 stories high! The tower measures 112 feet and 11.75 inches and is officially the tallest LEGO tower in the world, as affirmed by Guinness World Records.

LEZGO on an Adventure: ‘Adventure Time’ Intro Re-done Using LEGO

Cartoon Network is awesome. Most people my age have a long-standing relationship with Cartoon Network. I remember rushing home every day from school when I was in the third grade to watch episodes of The Little Lulu Show before having dinner or doing any homework (yeah, my mom was cool like that!)

Another reason for their awesomeness? They’ve recreated the introduction to Adventure Time using LEGO bricks and they did a fantastic job, to say the least. Don’t believe me? Check out the clip yourself and then watch it again…and again…and again…
