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 Atari 2600
This LEGO set is a follow-up to the Nintendo Entertainment System comprising 2,646 pieces – but one can’t deny the Atari 2600 set’s significantly higher perceived value. To keep things interesting for gamers who love anything classic from the 70s or 80s, there are the three cartridges of the classic games – Asteroids, Adventure, and Centipede – slidable into the main body of the brick console. Each of the games also gets a matchable mini figurine to complete the look.
3. LEGO “I Am Groot”
Modeled on the popular Marvel sentient tree who can only utter the words “I Am Groot”, this little figurine does a pretty good job of being an actual action figure that you can build and then play with. Made from 467 bricks, the Baby Groot statue is ideal for kids above the age of ten and Marvel fans well into their adult years. The I Am Groot build sports movable limbs with adjustable fingers too, and a perpetually smiling face that is reminiscent of the dancing Baby Groot from the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie!
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. 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.
6. LEGO Vintage Toaster
In the latest series of weirdly awesome LEGO builds that actually work (like this LEGO lawnmower, or LEGO Polaroid camera), dimexart’s LEGO Vintage Toaster is a rather cool retro-inspired appliance that turns leavened bread slices into nice, golden toast. The entire build is made from LEGO (including the toast too, sadly), and uses about 658 LEGO bricks, along with 2 rubber bands that get the toast to come vaulting out of the appliance!
7. The Starry Night LEGO Set
The Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night LEGO Set is a 3D representation of the famous oil-on-canvas painting by the Dutch Post-Impressionist painter. It’s another product of a Lego designer’s imagination put into production and turned into reality from an idea. The final production set is up for purchase and is ready to sell fast.
8. LEGO Great Pyramid of Giza
You can now recreate one of the ancient wonders of the world – the Great Pyramid of Giza! The beautifully detailed cross-section build features main tunnels, chambers, and the system that may have been used to move big rocks and boulders during the construction. It even includes 2 small pyramids, 2 mortuary temples, Sphinx statues, a workers’ village, and an obelisk.
9. 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!
10. LEGO Botanical Collection
Designed to provide users with a means for rest and relaxation, the Botanical Collection is like a sort of three-dimensional puzzle that merges the childhood joy of LEGO building blocks with the patient game of jigsaw puzzles. While children and adults enjoy collecting LEGO blocks and building microscopic cityscapes from that collection, the Botanical Collection marks a clear effort from the toy block’s company to ‘adultify’ their collection of LEGOs.
