I still remember the days, when I would spend hours excruciatingly building little LEGO block structures, only for them to fall apart as my sister bumped into them. I think we all have wonderful memories associated with LEGO blocks from our childhood, as well as the not-so-wonderful ones of stepping on them with our feet and feeling an absurd amount of pain shoot up through our legs. Pretty 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. From the world’s tallest LEGO set which happens to be the Eiffel Tower to an antique lamp made entirely from LEGO blocks – we’ve curated the best of LEGO creations for you to drool over!
1. LEGO JWST Model
Just like the real JWST, this LEGO JWST model folds into a stowed position for launch, features all of the major moving components, and is roughly to scale with a standard LEGO Minifigure”, reads the project description on the LEGO Ideas forum. The replica even comes with the 18 iconic hexagon mirrors that make up the telescope’s light-gathering reflector module. The miniature LEGO replica comes with every single conceivable component of the JWST, including even the secondary hinged mirror and that layered sun shield at the bottom.
2. LEGO Table Football MOC
Watch as football icons Thierry Henry and Marcus Rashford battle it out on this mini LEGO foosball table in the video above… With its DIY design that lets you even customize the players down to their jerseys, hairstyles, and skin colors, the LEGO Table Football MOC may just be the coolest interactive build of all time! The fully operational tabletop game is made up of 2339 LEGO elements, has 5 players on each team, and even comes with its own dugout that also doubles up as the audience while you play a quick game of soccer… ahem, football.
3. The 10307 Eiffel Tower
The world’s biggest landmark has landed in Legoland, and we are super excited. A colossal 10,001-piece LEGO set has been revealed by the LEGO Group, and it stands close to 5 feet tall when all the pieces are in place. By the way, this is the tallest one from the camp, and the second-best when it comes to the brick count. Quite aptly named the 10307 Eiffel Tower, this scaled model will be on the Wishlist of globe trotters who are fascinated by the Iron Lady, and the charm of the famous landmark.
4. The LED Lamp
Rather simply dubbed the LED Lamp, this creation from LEGO builders Castor-Troy and Max Brich models itself on the Tiffany-style stained-glass lamps from the older days. Originally popularized by Louis Comfort Tiffany (a stained-glass artist from the late 19th century), the lamps are characterized by an Art Nouveau-inspired form and a tinted glass shade that would often fill a room with fragments of colored light. While it would seem impossible to us common folk to make such an intricate lamp out of LEGO bricks, Castor-Troy and Brich rather effortlessly put this beautiful piece together in under 800 pieces… an achievement in itself!
5. LEGO 3D-printed Toy Duck
This small plastic red duck is actually a replica of the wooden toy duck that was created by Lego’s founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen. It’s actually not just an “ordinary” pet duck for whatever minifig you’re using. When you roll it on a surface, its beak opens and closes. This is because it uses a selective laser sintering process that allows it to have functional, mechanical elements. This is hopefully the first phase towards Lego being able to create more building elements in smaller numbers and at a more affordable price.
6. The LEGO Flip Clock
There’s something incredibly satisfying about Sariel’s intricately built LEGO MOC (My Own Creation). The panels, frame, gear systems, and even the motor are all LEGO products. Standing 44 cm wide and 15 cm tall (17.4″ by 5.9″), the LEGO Flip Clock features a 10:1 gear ratio for counting down the minutes, and a 12:1 gear ratio for the hours (allowing it to reset every 12 hours). The only visual flaw here (and this is purely subjective) is the fact that the minute numbers aren’t as close together as you’d expect, which means it’s easy to read the time as 08:5:3 rather than 08:53.
7. LEGO Iron Man Hulkbuster
This towering collectible has movie-accurate features including the cockpit inside the red and gold-plated armor, or the information plate showing the techie data. For those who always trip over the little details, there’s the Tony Stark mini figure in the Iron Man suit which adds a unique touch to the LEGO build when stacked up from scratch. To keep the realism going, there are authentic details such as the 3 light-up arc reactor adorning the chest and also present on the hands.
8. 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!
9. LEGO Razor Crest
The first LEGO Star Wars set of its kind in the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series, this collectible building set makes a wonderful gift for all Mandalorian fans: young and old. The build is pretty detailed, but when achieved, it allows a fan to reimagine the Din Djarin’s starship on screen in bricks. The 6,186-piece set measures over 72 cm long and it comes with mini figures to inspire role play, which is enhanced by the detailing and intricacies of the build.
10. The LEGO OLED Brick
The idea for the LEGO OLED brick originally came to Brown while he was sourcing tiny displays to make a keyboard with OLED keys that changed based on different scenarios. As soon as the idea to put an OLED display into a LEGO brick came to Brown, he soon pivoted, focusing all his efforts on making it happen. The result is nothing short of fantastic. To save on cost, Brown used a black and white display for this project, although it’s probably a matter of time before miniature color OLEDs make their way into bricks. Sign me up for that future, please.
