This is Paul Vermeesch's Star Wars-themed interpretation of M.C. Escher's "Relativity" (with Lego). You can't get much better than this.
Strange doesn't even begin to describe Silicon Valley tech executive Thomas Langenbach's arrest. Langenbach was arrested swapping barcodes on Lego boxes at several Target retails, buying them at huge discounts and then selling them on eBay to turn a profit. It was all working out so well, until he got caught.
When I was a kid my Lego creations were usually pretty sad, but I expect that this Spanish Lego fan named Sheepo made awesome ones.
For the premier of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D, Lego professionals (can you believe that's a job?) Rene Hoffmeister and Axel Al-Rubaie developed a new way to play the Star Wars theme song with a barrel organ made out of Lego, themed with four Star Wars worlds. Mind blown.
Massive Lego creations are always cool, but none is cooler than this incredible collection of the world's tallest skyscrapers recreated using a grand total of more than 15.5 million Lego blocks.
This summer, Christopher Nolan delivers The Dark Knight Rises, the final Batman movie to star Christian Bale. Gotham's vigilante will be accompanied by Catwoman and Bane. How do we know?

Did you like that 56-pound Battlestar Galactica Berzerk Lego model made by Garry King? Scrub that creation out of your memory. King's back and he's built an even bigger and heavier starship out of Lego bricks. Say hello to King's 111-pound Lego Battlestar Galactica Valkyrie.
It's happening. It's finally going to happen. Lego has finally caved in to demands for an official R2-D2 brick set. Come this May, you can buy the cutest astromech in the galaxy in brick form.
Filled with memories of Japan-mania, video games and the rise of manga and anime outside of Asia, the 1980s truly were a time for nurturing geeks. Most importantly, the '80s birthed the NES, Game Boy and The Transformers — all significant to my childhood geekdom. That's probably why we're overcome with nostalgia over this kick-ass Game Boy transformer made out of Lego with matching transforming Tetris game cartridge. It's a hell of an homage to the classics.
What seemed to be a match made in heaven is soon going to be a reality. After tying the knot, Lego and developer Mojang, will release official Minecraft physical play things in all glorious brick form later this summer. This is what toy bricks of digital bricks look like.
