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 new LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine
The new LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine is improved, detailed, and better than ever! The jazzed-up build features a Flux Capacitor light brick, gull-wing doors, and printed dashboard dates. You can add the different equipment from the different parts of the movie – including the lightning rod from the first film, and the hood-mounted circuit from Part III!
2. The Iron Man Mk 43
Created by LEGO Master Builder Ransom_Fern, the Iron Man Mk 43 is actually a mashup of two separate LEGO sets – the Infinity Saga Iron Man (code 76206), and the Eternals in Arishem’s Shadow kit (76155). The result is a figurine that’s much larger than the original Infinity Saga build, and arguably better looking too. Ransom_Fern spent two full months putting this piece together and the result is a much more proportional action figure, with a better silhouette, a great stance, and the same classic appeal.
3. The Fairground Collection set 10303 Loop Coaster
LEGO released the Fairground Collection set 10303 Loop Coaster as a part of the Creator Expert series which releases a unique set every two years. Using kinetic energy to complete the ride in one motion is an incredible feat in itself, since the size of the 36-inch-tall LEGO set is still compact by any standards. The 11 minifigs are lifted to the coaster’s top on an elevator using the winding motion of a manual crank. There is also the option to automate the function with a motor upgrade if you are willing to pay more money.
4. LEGO Speed Champions
This LEGO playset with 2 Mercedes-AMG racers lets you collect, build, and race your own LEGO Speed Champion. In fact, it’s just like the real thing – it’s been power-packed with original Mercedes design details. This one is a definite must-have for LEGO lovers!
5. 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!
Celebrating Boeri’s designs is TheCasleFan, a LEGO builder who has created a tiny replica of Boeri’s Milan project. The building is a scaled-down caricature of the original 2014 structure called Bosco Verticale, or Vertical Forest in Italian. TheCastleFan’s LEGO MOC (My Own Creation) really nails the details wonderfully. The building comes dotted with what really seems like countless plants, perched not just on each floor, but also along the walls. Balconies come with creepers that descend downwards, and solar panels on the terrace give the green building a greener touch!
7. The LEGO Classic Phone
Made from 572 bricks, the LEGO Classic Phone comes from the mind of a LEGO master-builder who goes by the name of Brick Dangerous. Inspired by a Paramount Collector Classic Series brand, they decided to create a replica that could decorate any corner of the house, filling the void left behind by the landline phone that used to be a standard of every modern household before Y2K.
8. LEGO Batmobile
Inspired by the rollercoaster movie plot, TaeYang Lee tried to recreate the film’s mood but didn’t come good with his own expectations. Later on, he discovered Mecabricks, a LEGO modeling tool, and hence came into existence this cool build. Just like the on-screen Batmobile this one too is set in a dark gloomy world which magnifies its sinister character. Those beaming headlights that seem to stare you right in the eye, or the flaming exhaust that warns you not to cross the periphery!
9. LEGO Luke Skywalker’s rugged X-34 Landspeeder
Well, it’s time for the Luke Skywalker’s rugged X-34 Landspeeder to take up the LEGO form. Yes, the Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder 1,890-piece LEGO set has officially landed. The iconic orange Landspeeder set is 19-inches long and comes with a detailed interpretation of the exposed turbine engine on the left, a curved windshield, and cute little minifigs. Priced at $199, this detailed LEGO brick interpretation is not cheap by any means, but then, nothing is too expensive for Star Wars fans, or is it?
10. LEGO Globe
Once the user assembles this tricky LEGO set piece by piece, it spins too, and the printed names of the continents and oceans glow in the dark. According to LEGO Group Head of Global Marketing for Adults, Federico Begher, “What is so wonderful about this set is that, with a little imagination, it allows fans to discover the world through LEGO bricks. The globe is a symbol of dreams and aspirations of travel to come for all who are seeking a bit of adventure or for those looking to learn about our world.”
