  • The 50 States In LEGO Form

    Jeff Friesen is an award-winning photographer who spents much of his time on his serious, fine art photography. But during the summers, when he’s spending time with his daughter, he often finds himself playing with her toys. Last year, this led to a fascination with Legos. He first constructed and photographed a funny scene depicting Manitoba, Canada. He enjoyed it so much, he completed scenes for all 10 Canadian provinces. Still yearning for more Lego projects, he decided to capture all 50 states in Lego form. The series provided so popular, Friesen is now publishing a book, “United States of Lego,” that you can preorder on Amazon. And check out more of Friesen’s Lego projects at The Brick Fantastic.

  • Ill-Fated Simpsons Car “The Homer” Built Out Of LEGOs

    In season 2 of “The Simpsons,” which aired 23 years ago by the way, we learned that Homer had a half-brother named Herb Powell who owned a car company called Powell Motors. Herb asked Homer to help design a car for the everyman. The finished product, dubbed The Homer, featured two bubble domes, shag carpeting, three horns, and tailfins. It was a complete failure. Now that LEGO is producing sets based on The Simpsons, LEGO enthusiast Brain Williams has taken it upon himself to build an incredible replica of The Homer. You can see the model in person at Brickworld or head over to Williams’ Flickr account, loaded with pictures of plenty of awesome LEGO creations.

  • These 20 Bands Recreated As Legos Are Eerily Accurate

    Malaysian Twitter user Adly Syairi Ramly used real Lego pieces to reimagine 20 famous bands as little yellow people. The fact he was able to make many of them so closely resemble their real life counterparts is incredible, especially when you consider no Photoshopping or other manipulation was employed. Lego Fat Mike looks just like the real Fat Mike from NOFX. Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder looks the same as a Lego dude. Really, the only problem I see is that The Smiths are all smiling in their Lego form. I just don’t buy that.

  • The Empire Strikes Back, Lego Style [25 Photos]

    Using Star Wars Lego sets and baking soda, photographer Vesa Lehtimäki, or Avanaut, is able to recreat the ice planet Hoth from “The Empire Strikes Back.” Sure, some nerds might complain that the photos don’t follow the actual storyline, but there’s no denying how impressive and cool they are. And anyway, I think we can all agree that Boba Fett making an appearance on Hoth would have been awesome. Who can get enough of the Slave I? Be sure to check out the rest of the Hoth series and Avanaut’s other Lego photo sets on Flickr.
