Fans of both Ghostbusters and LEGO had their wildest dreams come true earlier this year when an official set for the firehouse that acts as the paranormal exterminators’ headquarters was released. It was a massive (and expensive) set, and having bought and built it myself, I can tell you it was one of the most fun sets to put together. But the new Ghostbusters headquarters should have their own LEGO set too, right?
We already know there’s an official LEGO set of the new Ecto-1 on the way, featuring minifigures of all four of the new Ghostbusters, as well as their secretary Kevin, who comes with the Ecto-2 motorcycle, and even a demon ghost. But LEGO fans need a set that will house the reboot’s vehicle, and one master builder has them covered with a new project at LEGO Ideas.

Pretty much everyone knows there’s a new Ghostbusters movie coming to theaters this summer. The jury is out as to whether or nor director Paul Feig can deliver an entertaining update of the 1984 classic, this time with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the lead roles (meet all the ladies right here). We’ll find out in about a month whether this will be the successful start of a new franchise. Until then, we have another Ghostbusters project for you to feast your eyes on.
Animators and LEGO master builders from Digital Wizardz this cute and extremely impressive stop-motion LEGO Ghostbusters short film, bringing some of the more iconic scenes from the film to life in brick form. In addition, there are actually some pretty amusing gags and nods to other properties like Star Wars, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Simpsons.

The recent Game of Thrones episode “The Door” was simultaneously a gamechanger. Some fans are exciting about the mind-blowing revelation that came from the episode which also gave us an origin story for the character Hodor, who can only speak his own name in different inflections. Others weren’t pleased with what the events of the episode mean for the future. We’ll leave any spoiler details about this episode until after the jump, but for those in the know, this recently revealed Hodor doorstop is something Game of Thrones fans will want to use in their home.

It’s already an exciting time to be a Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan, with the movie-mocking show getting a revival thanks to the success of a very popular Kickstarter that wrapped up late last year. But there’s a chance it could get even better if this custom LEGO set becomes a reality.
LEGO master builder JMaster put together this Mystery Science Theater 3000 LEGO set which is a LEGO Ideas project that will hopefully get enough votes to have a crack at becoming an official set. Check out the MST3K LEGO set below. Read More »
If you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War, then you know that Spider-Man takes notice of how Cap’s shield doesn’t really follow the rules of physics. The shield effortlessly bounces off walls and foes and somehow always manages to make it right back into the hands of Steve Rogers. And now one fan has made some of the magic of Captain America’s shield a reality with the use of electromagnets.
Find out how electromagnets help complete a real Captain America shield below. Read More »
Unfortunately, geneticists haven’t figured out how to bring dinosaurs back from extinction just yet. Or perhaps they figured it out awhile ago, but they’re just not telling anybody for feat that someone would actually try to make Jurassic Park, or even Jurassic World, a reality. Instead, people have opted to just take on exotic pets like snakes, turtles, ferrets and more.
Now one fan has decided to combine his love for one of his exotic pets with his love for Steven Spielberg‘s modern classic, and the result is a tiny version of Jurassic Park that a tortoise named Louie calls home. Check out the Jurassic Park tortoise house below. Read More »
Late last year, we highlighted some of today’s popular, contemporary movies that had been given a makeover as if they were released on VHS tapes, appearing just as they would on the shelf of a Blockbuster video store. Now another artist has done the same thing, but his designs are a bit more impressive since they involve actually transferring the movies in question to VHS.
Off Track Outlet has designed some impressive modern movie VHS covers for films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Deadpool, Jurassic World, Big Hero 6 and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Check them out below! Read More »
There are some very talented master builders out there who create the most impressive custom LEGO creations. We love featuring impressive LEGO creations, especially ones that have a chance at getting turned into real LEGO sets like that recent Short Circuit set that puts Johnny Five together or the Voltron set that you can actually assemble five separate pieces to form the robot.
Now we have a truly stunning LEGO Star Destroyer that puts the official LEGO version of the Imperial vehicle (seen in the foreground above) to shame. We don’t know how many pieces were made to create this one, but it has three interior levels, houses some TIE Interceptors and an Imperial shuttle, and is an absolute marvel of LEGO engineering. See the custom LEGO Star Destroyer after the jump. Read More »

The LEGO Technic line allows master builders to create working robots and other creations with moving parts, but now a custom LEGO Ideas project is hoping to bring a cinematic robot to life with building blocks, just without all the complicated moving parts.
Johnny Five is the lovable, curious robot from the ’80s classic Short Circuit. And while technology would certainly allow for someone to build their own Johnny Five pretty easily today, it would be much easier if you were able to build a LEGO Johnny Five. That’s what master builder PepaQuin is hoping happens with his custom creation, and the good news is this project is already on its way to hopefully becoming an official set.

There are some very passionate pop culture fans out there in the world. Some of them like to show their love by amassing collectibles, others like to dress up as their favorite characters. But it takes a real dedicated crew to build a homemade version of an iconic cinematic vehicle. Plenty of people have created their own Back to the Future time machines or A-Team vans, but a group of friends decided they wanted to bring a vehicle from the world of Pixar Animation into the real world.
Some very talented people decided to create a working replica of the Pizza Planet Truck originally seen in Toy Story. Not only is their creation from 2011 impressive and as screen accurate as possible, but once they were done with it, they drove it to Pixar’s studios and impressed some of the very people who created the real Pizza Planet truck.
