S Q U A R E —— M O M finally got around to finishing Garnet Dark red, bright pink and magenta are not available in very versatile colours, so some sacrifices had to be made. She’s very poseable but quite fragile. But I’m very happy overall with how she turned out. I’m thinking about the possibility of a pearl and amethyst…

LEGO + Mad Max = Awesome

Hot on the heels of sharing Caleb Kraft’s Flamethrower Ukelele, along comes LEGO Will with not one, but two different LEGO models of the Doof Warrior (previously featured here) and his Doof Wagon, complete with functional speakers. But that’s not all, he’s created a whole fleet of vehicles either based on or inspired by the brutal machines in Mad Max: Fury Road, including Immortan Joe’s Gigahorse and Furiosa’s War Rig.

Visit Will’s Earsplitter / Doof Wagon and Mad Max Lego Wasteland photo sets to get a closer look at these and other badass Mad Max-inspired LEGO vehicles.

The X-Files +cLEGOc= Super AwesomecLEGO X-Files

Australian LEGO bilder Brent Waller created this fantastic reproduction of The X-Files set, including FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, Mulder’s cluttered office, and even some of their elusive Grey friends.

Visit Brent Waller’s Flickr page to get an even better look at all the details packed into this geektastic creation.

Last year LEGO turned part of Waller’s awesome Ghostbuster’s set into an official product, so we’re crossing our fingers that the same thing will happen for this one.

We want to believe.

Professional LEGO builder Ryan McNaught, aka The Brickman, was commissioned by the Nicholson Museum in Sydney, Australia to build a LEGO model of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. Over the course of 470 hours and using over 190,000 LEGO bricks, McNaught built this awesome reconstruction of Pompeii at the moment of its destruction in 79 AD when Mount Vesuvius erupted, destroying and burying the city in ash and pumice, how the ruined city appeared when it was rediscovered in the 1700s, and how it appears today.

According to the museum, McNaught’s LEGO Pompeii is the largest model of an ancient city ever made using LEGO bricks.

LEGO Pompeii will be on display at the Nicholson Museum through December 31, 2015. Click here for addition information about the exhibit.
