SIMPSONS LEGO MINIFIGURES REVEALED

Lego already released a $255 Simpsons House, but this coming May, they’ll be releasing a series of 16 Lego Simpsons figures to go along with it! The set drops May 1st with each figure being sold for $3.99 (most likely blind-packaged), just in time for the May 4th episode “Brick Like Me” which sees Springfield and all its residents turned into Lego bricks.

Now comes the hard part: resisting the urge to buy an entire case of these.

Fishspace: LEGOs For Fish

Created by Greg Towndrow, Fishspace is an aquarium that has the ability to attach LEGO pieces and Megablocks to the rim and bottom of its container. Not much more to it than that, but I think it’s a pretty neat idea that could look interesting, depending on your LEGO collection. Whenever those Simpsons LEGOs hit shelves, I’m definitely going to be interested in setting up a Springfield for my fish to swim through. It’s currently being funded by Kickstarter if you’d like to help support this tub. 

Modular “Minimals” by Sebastián Burga

Peruvian designer Sebastián Burga has created these awesome modular animal toys called “Minimals,” in which can be put together and taken apart the same way LEGOs can.

The name derives, at a time, from the word “Minimalism” and the contraction of “Mini-Animals”. Certainly, they’re set out to expose the essence of toyness through eliminating all non-essential forms, features and concepts. Together, they create a pantone of colors, animals, clothes, styles and archetypes, encouraging people to find themselves between them.

These figures are clean, clever, minimal, and pretty large. Check our more photos at Burga's Behance or blog.

LEGO N64 Transformers

Baron von Brunk combined three 90’s childhood staples into a great set of toys that I wish would have existed when I was a kid. These were made for the Summer 2013 Toy Brick Contest. Check out the Instructables to see how they were made.

Watch This Girl Build Her Own Prosthetic Leg Out Of LEGO Pieces
It’s awesome watching this girl scavenge for all the right pieces (a feeling I’m sure we’re all familiar with), and become  increasingly delighted at her progress. See for yourself.

The uploader, AmputeeOT, says:

Someone in my research lab jokingly suggested I make a prosthetic leg out of legos.
Please don’t do this yourself, I don’t want you to fall and get hurt!
Sometimes, you just need to be silly.

Could you imagine a world where half LEGO cyber amazon warrior women roam the Earth? Sounds like a plot for an action-packed, sexy pulp comic/my dreams come true.

The LEGO Movie Looks All Kinds Of Legit [Trailer]

This movie has been in development so long that I kind of forgot about/gave up on it, but this trailer makes me feel all warm and tingly. It plays on nostalgia and beloved characters much like Wreck-It-Ralph, but with LEGOs instead of video games. And instead of just straight-up CG, they mix in stop-motion with actual LEGO pieces!

Liam Neeson? Chris Pratt? Will Farrel? Morgan Freeman?? Alison Brie!? Ninja Turtles!?!? Will Arnette as Batman!?!?!?

It Took 400,000 Lego Bricks to Build Hogwarts

Alice Finch built this humongous Hogwarts replica using 400,000 Lego bricks, not just completing the outside of the school accurately, but also creating an interior to just about every room Hogwarts has to offer as well. We’re talking Snape's classroom, the Chamber of Secrets, potions lab, the Great Hall, and everything else you can think of. Photos of the entire school can be found on her Flickr.

Brothers Brick has an interview with Finch about the massive creative feat. Flip through her photos to see numerous references and characters to the beloved book/film series.

This Crazy Lego Contraption Took Two Years To Build [VIDEO]
This contraption takes tiny little balls on a seven-minute journey from Point A and back in an endless loop. While some people will probably watch this and ask “Why?,” the dude who made it clearly asked “Why not?” And now he has more YouTube views than you do.
Watch:

Somewhere there’s a very important man at an engineering firm shouting to someone over the phone, “I don’t care what it takes! Bring me the man responsible for this device at once!”
This thing would make the most annoying gumball machine in the world.

7-Foot Serenity Recreated With 70,000 LEGO Pieces

This beast was made by Adrian Drake of Brickfrenzy and it took about 21 months to build. Check out more pics here.

I’m so glad there’s people out there with the patience to make this sort of jazz because I sure as heck don’t. I wouldn’t mind playing with it though!
