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 art, and I love scrolling through these creations, admiring them, and feeling an intense surge of satisfaction at their perfection. And, we’ve curated the best of the lot for you to drool and go gaga over!
1. The LEGO Kumbi Saleh 3020 CE
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!
2. The LEGO Ideas Antique Cash Register
Built to absolute stunning detail, the LEGO Ideas Antique Cash Register models itself directly on the National Cash Register Model 452 – a popular cashier’s machine from the 19th Century, designed and developed in Ohio at the start of the era of retail businesses. The LEGO variant, however, is the brainchild of a Master Builder who goes by the name of dimexart, and uses a whopping 2055 pieces to come together.
3. The LEGO Imperial Light Cruiser
The latest LEGO sets include the Moff Gideon’s Imperial Light Cruiser (which I’m surely going to add to the collection), Imperial Armored Marauder, and the bounty hunter Boba Fett’s Starship. The highlight of them all is the Imperial Light Cruiser (75315) which comes with a bridge (doubles as a handle for flying action), large spring-loaded shooters, and dual mini TIE Fighters. How could the LEGO set not have the main leads – that’s why it also comes with The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda minifigures along with the infamous villain Moff Gideon, Fennec Shand, Cara Dune, and the Dark Tropper too.
4. The LEGO Ideas Home Alone Set
The LEGO Ideas Home Alone set is your childhood fantasy come to life! You can now build, and spend time at the iconic Mcallister home. It’s the perfect way to kickstart Christmas! The LEGO home opens up, allowing you to access all the little rooms of the Mcallister residence. Laying traps has never been this easy and fun!
5. The LEGO Ship In A Bottle
Looking every bit like the real deal, the Ship In A Bottle is the latest from the clever master-builders at LEGO Ideas who churn out magical numbers such as the LEGO Typewriter we saw recently. Made using 962 pieces of LEGO (although a majority of them are just the water under the ship), the Ship In A Bottle comes with everything you’d expect, including a ship with 3 sails, a transparent bottle, a stand, a nameplate (the ship’s called the Leviathan), and even a cork-stopper made from LEGO bricks!
6. The LEGO AT-AT
You can now build a tribute to Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back with the largest LEGO AT-AT yet. The cool build is even equipped with rotating cannons and a bomb-drop hatch! Not to mention two little speeder bikes are included in it as well!
7. LEGO The Chamber of Secrets
Ethan Johnson (@ekjohnson_1) created this amazing Harry Potter-themed build which features The Chamber of Secrets. From a LEGO Harry to all the monstrosities you could find in The Chamber of Secrets – this build is as accurate and intricate as it gets!
8. LEGO The Colosseum
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!
9. LEGO Boba Fett’s Starship
This LEGO brick version of Boba Fett’s Starship by Robert Whitehead (@shundeez_official) is as epic and majestic as it gets! It’s perfect for those bounty-hunting missions and battles that await you in the Star Wars world!
10. LEGO Wooden Homeware Collection
LEGO recently teamed up with the Danish design brand Room Copenhagen to create a warm and minimal homeware collection that includes wall hangers, picture frames, desk drawers, and book racks. The products mimick quite a few of the iconic LEGO elements – from the single stud to other easily recognizable pieces. And of course, all the items have been embellished with the iconic LEGO lettering! The full collection consists of a Wall Hanger Set (set of three), a picture frame, a book rack, two Desk Drawer options – 2×2 and 2×4.
