There are some really interesting officially licensed LEGO bundles on Amazon right now that I haven’t seen sold anywhere else yet. The LEGO Creativity Notebook Sets include a premium, LEGO-themed notebook, a LEGO-themed gel pen, and a polybag with a small LEGO set.

(Written by Geneva – gid617) If you read my previous articles you know that I have been working on a series of LEGO amusement park mash-up projects by combining sets from different themes (see links at the end of this post). So far, we discussed mixing sets from LEGO Friends and LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Creator […] Read more

I recently came across the YouTube channel of LEGOParadise, run by a LEGO fan from the UK named Liam. He has been building some excellent minifig-scale working LEGO vending machines, arcade games, and other interactive machines. Not only that, but he also shares instructions for most of his projects, so you can follow along and […] Read more


LEGO Train Layout & Landscape Standards

LEGO train sets usually come with enough track pieces to make a simple loop, and may also include a small station for passengers and cargo. Other than these basic features offered by official LEGO train sets, LEGO fans are on their own when it comes to building train layouts. This is, of course, not a […] Read more

Stactiles – Construction Without Instruction

With the popularity of LEGO, it was inevitable that small companies will spring up to try to get in on the action. LEGO customizers who cater to LEGO fans with custom accessories and printing services have been around for a long time, but now there are also companies making many other LEGO-compatible products for the […] Read more


Custom LEGO cars with instruction videos

There are a number of ways LEGO fans can share building instructions and tutorials for their custom models. Taking pictures of the building steps is a pretty straightforward process, but it’s quite tedious. Generating building instructions with LEGO Digital Designer (or other design software) is another common method. Although instructions created this way will look […] Read more


Tips for starting your own LEGO podcast

(Written by William) With the New Year coming up soon, I know that many people are thinking about trying something new. As LEGO fans, we may plan a big building project, look into joining a local club, take up LEGO photography or brick-filming, participate in a building competition, publish a LEGO book, or try out […] Read more


Building tutorials: LEGO walls & landscapes

About a year ago, we discussed a series of advanced building techniques for constructing realistic brick walls out of LEGO elements (see: LEGO Building Technique: LEGO Brick Walls).
