Brick By Brick: Build a LEGO Resume, Get a Second Interview

LEGO Resume

The Internet has seen its fair share of unusual and creative resumes that are essentially applications of that person’s skills and qualifications. For example, there was that programmer who turned his resume into an interactive one by creating a website that played like a video game as you scrolled down.

Then there’s this resume by Redditor Leah who made a LEGO set featuring none other than herself. It made perfect sense that she came up with something as creative and far out as this, considering that she was trying to get a job at an advertising agency.

Rockin’ Bricks: 20 Famous Bands Recreated In LEGO

LEGO Bands

What you can make with LEGO bricks is limitless, especially if you’re creative and have the ability to envision while you put them together, brick by brick. These are qualities that LEGO builder extraordinaire Adly Syairi Ramly doesn’t have a shortage of, which his latest work clearly shows.

Adly has recently unveiled a gallery of twenty iconic bands recreated using nothing but LEGO bricks, including the likes of the Beastie Boys, Beatles, Smashing Pumpkins, and Foo Fighters.Continue Reading

Make It Real: Doctor Who LEGO Set

Doctor Who LEGO

It’s surprising how something–or rather, someone–as popular as Doctor Who still doesn’t have a LEGO set to call his own. That might soon change if the set created by Andrew Clark gets enough votes on the LEGO Cuuso website. It’s currently has about 8,600 supporters, which is short of the 10,000 required before LEGO reviews the design and gives the decision on whether or not they’ll make the set into a reality.

Andrew’s Doctor Who set features all the well-known elements from the hit show, including the Doctor (of course!), his sonic screwdriver, and TARDIS.

Power Brick Battery Pack: Charge It, Build It, Brick It, Mod It

This is probably the coolest smartphone charger that we’ve seen in a long time.

The entire thing is compatible and connectable with minifigs and the other bricks that you have in your LEGO stash.

Make It Happen: ‘Big Bang Theory’ LEGO Set

Big Bang Theory LEGO

Our whole universe was in a hot dense state, then nearly seven days ago expansion started in LEGO land…

Master LEGO builders Alatariel and GlenBricker love LEGO and they have a special spot in their hearts for Big Bang Theory. You know, that super nerdy sitcom filled with geeky factoids that are often sputtered by the inimitable Sheldon. The duo put their talents to good use and came up with the mini-Big Bang Theory LEGO set featuring none other than the cast of the show.

You won’t be disappointed at the amount of geekery that they managed to cram into the brick apartment. Personally, I’m really digging the telescope and that miniature globe and rocket ship…and of course, there’s the minifigs.

Droolin’ Over Bricks: LEGO Food That Looks Good Enough to Eat

LEGO Food

Above is what pancakes slathered in syrup and topped with butter would look like if we lived in a pixelated world. We don’t, but that didn’t stop master Lego builder Sachiko Akinaga from putting together this gallery of scrumptious-looking dishes using nothing but Lego bricks. It’s hard enough–at least, for me–to build something from sets that contain actual instructions, so what Sachiko achieved here is no small feat.

Aside from the most common breakfast food ever, he also built a banana (that has just been peeled), some sushi, and even a burger. Hit the break to check out the rest of his work.Continue Reading

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.
