Anyone who’s played with LEGO bricks knows that building curved objects is no simple task. UK-based LEGO building company Bright Bricks showed off their mastery over the tiny plastic bricks by creating this awesome Life-size LEGO BB-8 for the UK premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Watch this time-lapse video to see exactly how the Bright Bricks builders constructed their model of our favorite spherical droid:

The only thing better that LEGO sushi is LEGO sushi served up on a working conveyer belt! Japanese LEGO enthusiast peisan built an entire sushi restaurant fully of minifig employees, customers, and lots of LEGO food on teeny-tiny plates. Even BB-8 is there riding the conveyer belt.

This awesome model is full of playful details, including all sorts of unexpected visitors and sushi-prep shenanigans behind the counter. Maybe we have to travel to Japan in order to have our sushi prepared with swords. Click here for lots of close-up photos and watch this video for a tour of the LEGO sushi shop in action:

Today marks the very first time that a LEGO sculpture has made our stomachs growl. Japanese LEGO enthusiast nobu_tary has a knack for creating mouthwatering food sculptures using nothing but LEGO bricks.

From a slice of pizza with all the toppings and gooey cheese to a beautiful bento or smaller pieces such as a vibrant piece of broccoli or a melting ice cream cone, each clever build looks so realistic we suddenly feel like we haven’t eaten all day.

We love it when people turn urban repairs awesome art projects. Previously we’ve seen mosaic tiles used to patch potholes in Chicago and old books used to fix broken pillars on a library in Russia. Berlin, Germany-based artist Jan Vormann uses LEGO bricks to make colorful patches to repair holes in landmarks and other historical buildings. Vormann usually seeks out buildings damaged during wartime in effort to draw attention to their historical significance while also cheering up the urban landscape with his brightly colored “patchworks.”

“I don’t want to add visually dark and heavy objects. My idea to use these plastic construction bricks was to add a kind of colorful part of contemporary times; a material that everybody worldwide has the same feeling on it, he says. “For me, it’s a kind of a hopeful thing to see that we share this common culture.”
