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. But when it comes to LEGO, there is only a tiny minifigure version of the ball droid that fits inside Poe Dameron’s X-Wing or sits in the new Millennium Falcon. 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. Star Wars fans have waited 10 years for the franchise to return on the big screen and LEGO fans spend hours putting together building brick sets. And now one fan of both has built another impressive custom set that is massive and cool.
KW Vauban has built an Ewok village from Return of the Jedi that is no less than three feet tall, which is pretty much as tall as Wicket and the rest of the Ewoks from the forest moon of Endor. Check it out! Read More »
There have been a few different LEGO versions of the iconic Millennium Falcon from Star Wars over the years. There have been two minifigure scale versions of the ship, from the original trilogy and The Force Awakens, and then there’s a more impressive Ultimate Collector’s Series version that usually costs upwards of $5,000 nowadays. But one fan decided to make his own LEGO Millennium Falcon, and it’s bigger and better than any version we’ve seen before. Check it out below! Read More »
We’re on the verge of having an entire generation never know the exquisite joy of shuffling through a video rental store to pick out the movie you want to take home for the weekend. Sure, compared to DVD and eventually Blu-ray, the quality of VHS was abysmal. But there was still something special about going to the local video store and just walking the aisles and finding something for your viewing pleasure.
Now one cinephile has decided to resurrect a small part of that joy by giving modern movies like Mad Max: Fury Road, Ex Machina and The Revenant their own retro-style VHS covers that you might have seen on shelves at your local video store. Check them out! Read More »
Even though James Gunn has always been active on social media, the attention he’s gotten on his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages since directing Marvel’s smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy has been more than considerable. From fan Q&As to rumor responses, not a week goes by that there isn’t something worth paying attention to from Gunn.
This week is no different. Gunn has shown off one of the coolest coffee tables you’ve ever seen, and it’s inspired by the birthday present that Star-Lord’s mother left him on her death bed. Check it out! Read More »
In case you haven’t heard, there’s a sparsely promoted movie coming out called Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We know this is late notice, but the movie comes out in less than two weeks, and apparently there are some people who want to get dressed up for the occasion like it’s some big deal.
However, since it’s the holidays, maybe you don’t have the time to put some kind of complicated cosplay costume together, or you don’t have a bunch of money lying around to buy an amazing costume for the occasion. Luckily DIY Prop Shop is here with some instructions on how to make your own X-Wing pilot helmet (specifically Luke Skywalker’s) for about $22. Check it out! Read More »

With Star Wars Battlefront on the shelves as another way of fueling the hype train on track to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans have been doing their fair share of blasting both Rebels and Imperials in the video game world. But one fan wanted to do some blasting with the weight of LEGO in his hands.
Flickr user and Star Wars fan Nick Jensen has recreated a life-size version of the E-11 blaster rifle, which fans will know as the blaster carried by Stormtroopers in the original Star Wars trilogy. They occasionally use the gun to hit their targets, but mostly it’s just to make a lot of noise and flashing red lights. But this looks like quite the deadly piece of LEGO weaponry. Read More »
With recent news of a Jurassic World trilogy in the works to follow the success of the sequel/reboot this past summer, the popularity of the Jurassic Park franchise might be bigger than it’s ever been. There’s plenty of dinosaur action in our future from Universal Pictures.
Now two fans have taken their love of the franchise to an extreme level with a massive LEGO creation that takes all four of the Jurassic Park movies spanning 22 years and combines them into one giant set, not unlike the LEGO Jurassic World video game that was released this year in conjunction with the movie.
