LEGO creations by master builders that showcase why LEGO is not just a children’s toy: Part 7

Remember when we spent our summer vacations and free time after school fiddling around with LEGO blocks, and sometimes painfully stepping on them with our feet? Fun times, right? But, LEGO is no more considered child’s play! Master builders, artists, and LEGO enthusiasts all over the world are creating impressive LEGO builds that’ll blow your minds away. They are a result of their hours of dedication, attention to detail, hard work, and creativity. They can be considered works of arts, and we’ve curated the best of the lot for you to drool and go gaga over!

Using over 100,000 LEGO pieces, designer Ekow Nimako imagines the Kumbi Saleh 3020 CE a Ghanaian metropolis 1000 years in the future. This artwork is the centerpiece for his exhibition titled Building Black Civilizations and showcases details like nothing you have ever seen before, almost reminiscent of the Game of Thrones title sequence! This amazing piece of work was also acquired by the Aga Khan Museum!

Nick Crocco built the beloved VW Bus, but instead of wheels, he gave the classic automobile – legs! The cute little red and white structure reminds me of a Transformer. This is one Transformer I wouldn’t mind watching on the big screen!

LEGO’s largest-ever set is an accurate and mind-boggling replica of The Colosseum! The intricate design, the attention to detail, and the medieval feels take me right back to the streets of Rome. This one is a must-try for all the history fanatics!

The LEGO Porsche 911 brings an automotive classic to life! You can build your own version of the iconic legend, capturing its roaring essence and timeless style, although you may miss its menacing speed.

Another one for the history buffs! Swan Dutchman created the mask of Tutankhamun! The ancient Egyptian Pharoah has always been a source of curiosity, and this mask does him complete justice. Initially, Dutchman built the mask using 16,000 lego pieces and is displayed at the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities, however, he downscaled the number of elements used and created a smaller and more compact version.

The LEGO botanical collection features a beautiful and soothing Bonsai Tree! Start your own little LEGO garden, with this quintessential Japanese bonsai and its pretty cherry blossoms.

Benedek Lampert’s love for photography and LEGO can be seen in this autumnal scene that brings a mystical forest to life. In fact, so vivid is the image, it could easily belong to one of the scenes from JRR Tolkien’s epic novels! And you know, those little adventurers walking towards the mystical tree could easily be the ring bearer’s on their quest!

Straight out of the iconic 1989 Batman movie, the LEGO Batwing is a sleek and menacing machine! Build your own Gotham City with this incredible vehicle, and the accompanying LEGO Batman, and his sworn enemies.

Andrew James Steele built a mind-blowing Bionicle and named it Gallow! The electric blue build reminds me of a dragon if it was from the year 2050. Futuristic, equipped with sharp teeth, claws, spikes, and the works, it’s one impressive work of art.

Created by Phil, the @supa_dupa_lego_troopa, the Landrover Defender is a mammoth beast always ready for some outdoor adventures! Imposing and powerful, it does the actual automotive some real justice.
