The world of movies is chock full of cool devices, tools, weapons and more that sadly just aren’t real. Thankfully, we can buy replicas of some of our favorite sci-fi props. But if you’re more of a tech savvy, hands-on kind of fan, maybe you’d just rather make your own. And if you’ve always wanted a Ghostbusters ghost trap of your own, we have just the video for you.
The folks over at Tested have revealed a video that shows how to make a working Ghostbusters ghost trap, complete with lights, smoke, sounds and a working pedal that opens the trap to catch those pesky spooks and spectres. What’s cool is that it was created almost entirely with parts made in a 3D printer. Find out how it’s done after the jump. Read More »
People mash up movie trailers all the time for us to watch. Just recently someone took footage from Guardians of the Galaxy and cut it in the style of the most recent Suicide Squad trailer. But it took more than some pointing and clicking to create the latest mash-up that was brought to our attention. That’s because this mash-up isn’t a video or even an image. It’s a car.
Some genius has created a vehicle that mashes up the famous DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future and Michael Knight’s classic car K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider. The result is a sleek, black DeLorean that is ready to fight crime with David Hasselhoff at the wheel before traveling in time. Check out the Back to the Future Knight Rider mash-up car below.

Even though hope for Pacific Rim 2 was thought to be lost, back in January we learned that the film isn’t exactly dead yet, and Guillermo del Toro may still yet get around to the next phase of the fight between humanity and the massive inter-dimensional monsters known as kaiju. And while waiting for the sequel, one fan decided to spend his time building a Jaeger of his own, in LEGO form. No, it’s not big enough to take down any kaiju, but it’s impressive nonetheless.

If you’re one of those people who has always wanted your own lightsaber, and you’re not scared of potentially blinding yourself with science, then you might want to pay attention. Allen Pan, the engineering whiz who built a version of Thor’s hammer that only he could lift, has constructed himself a real lightsaber. He shows off the power of this custom creation by first lighting a cigarette with it, and then setting one of his friends on fire. See the real lightsaber in action below. Read More »
Down in Melbourne, Australia last week, they had quite the celebration of LEGO with the Brickvention 2016 convention. The two-day event featured a huge collection of LEGO models including trains, castles, pirate ships, space ships, planes, buildings, sculptures and many more. And one of the models on display was this fantastic custom LEGO Arkham Asylum which took three months and 18,000 LEGO pieces to build. It’s a truly fantastic piece of work. Read More »
Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of Pixar’s delicious Ratatouille, and one fan wants to get a head start on celebrating by getting a custom LEGO set for the Pixar Animation movie to become official.
LEGO Ideas user Carlierti has created a LEGO version of the Bistrot chez Remy, the French restaurant from the end of Ratatouille that gives the brilliant little rodent chef the perfect outlet for his wonderful culinary skills. And he even has the perfect minifigures to go along with it. Check out more pictures of the Ratatouille LEGO set after the jump! Read More »
Lately, LEGO has been putting together some pretty awesome sets that are just as cool for adult collectors as for kids. In fact, some of them are probably geared towards those older master builders, such as the massive Ghostbusters firehouse and the recently revealed 1966 Batman series Batcave. But when it comes to Star Wars, most of their sets are still geared towards kids, and some builders just want their LEGO Star Wars vehicles bigger and better.
That’s where master builder Peter Brookdale comes into play with his custom LEGO AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back that was created with over 6,000 pieces, making it six times bigger than the official LEGO set. Check it out below! Read More »
We’ve been big fans of all things LEGO at /Film for awhile. So whenever a cool custom LEGO set comes along that deserves to be made into an official set, we want to make sure it gets as much support as possible over at LEGO Ideas. And since we also have a love for theme park fun, a certain LEGO set paying tribute to Disneyland is right up our alley.
One LEGO fan and model builder has created a microscale LEGO version of Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s a cool little creation, and if it gets enough votes to potentially get made, it’s not the kind of LEGO set that’s going to break the bank (unlike that awesome LEGO Ghostbusters firehouse). Check out the LEGO Disneyland set below! Read More »

There are a lot of BB-8 toys out there, from the pricey Sphero model to a variety of action figure versions.

Thankfully, one LEGO and Star Wars fan has put together a mid-size version of the droid made out of LEGO pieces, and if you have the pieces lying around, you can build it yourself. Find out how below! Read More »
Fans of Star Wars and LEGO must be some of the most dedicated and patient people.
