As a child, I loved sitting and spending hours excruciatingly and lovingly building little LEGO block structures. But, watching my sister bump into them, causing them to fall apart completely was truly heartbreaking. We all have heartwarming memories associated with LEGO blocks from our childhood, as well as the not-so-heartwarming ones of stepping on them with our feet and feeling an insane amount of pain shoot up our legs. Despite these wonderful childhood memories, 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. And we’ve put together some mindblowing LEGO builds that recently took our breath away! From a legendary DJ console in LEGO form to a life-size Captain America shield – these LEGO builds are gonna get LEGO lovers drooling over them.
1. LEGO “The Moon: Earth’s Companion”
Called the LEGO Art space poster “The Moon: Earth’s Companion”, this fan-made creation was built using 2360 bricks, and it celebrates the beauty, mystery, and brilliance of the moon. The build features a brick-built Moon that was created with immense precision and attention to detail, which was further heightened by realistic craters and terrains.
2. The LEGO Quidditch Trunk
The LEGO Quidditch Trunk is designed to fit entirely within a trunk, and the pitch is as detailed as it can get! The pitch includes players, house banners, hoops, brooms, quaffles, bludgers, snitches, and all the fanfare linked with the popular fictional sport. All the multiple elements fit into a tiny trunk that opens up into a playable Quidditch pitch.
3. LEGO Captain America Shield
The LEGO Captain America shield comes in over 3,000 pieces and measures 18.5 inches in diameter. It also has a little Captain America Minifigure to accompany it. Although it isn’t made from vibranium, it looks and feels just like the real deal, but honestly, if you’ve ever stepped on a LEGO brick then you know it’s as tough as vibranium!
4. The LEGO MoonGravity06
The LEGO MoonGravity06 has an unconventional yet creative appearance. The entire outer body is built using black bricks that are remarkably accurate. The wheels are 3D printed, while the grill on the front relies on LEGO katana swords. The windows are all hollow, with no glass components, but that’s because it is difficult to find glass pieces matching MoonGravity06’s model and scale.
5. LEGO Van Gogh’s Sunflowers
LEGO master builder Chi Hsin Wei created this stunning rendition of Van Gogh’s sunflowers, which garnered quite a bit of attention on Instagram! The beautiful MOC features a frame, and an excellent three-dimensional rendition of the painting, with the flowers popping out of the canvas, greeting you with their simple beauty and vibrance!
6. LEGO 10318 Concorde
The fully-assembled LEGO 10318 Concorde is built using 2083 bricks and is truly a stunning sight. It is 15 cm tall and measures an impressive 105cm in length and 43cm from wing to wing. It perfectly captures the essence of the iconic Franco-British airliner that cruised at twice the speed of sound since 1976, before being laid to rest in 2003.
7. The 31210 Modern Art Set
The 31210 Modern Art set includes 805 pieces for you to play around with! Although the set is smaller compared to other sets, it is quite unique and interesting, as you can create your own abstract art without following any instructions. It does come with some form of instructions for the four separate brick sculptures that you can create out of it but you can also follow your own rhythm.
8. LEGO Pioneer CDJ 2000
This super cool LEGO build pays tribute to the iconic Pioneer CDJ 2000 – the greatest deejaying kit ever! The stunning creation is functional as well, and features moving parts such as a spinning disc, a moving tempo fader, an ejecting CD tray, a dynamic screen, and a removable USB stick for the modern MP3 generation!
9. The Walt Disney Tribute Camera
LEGO released an interesting homage to Disney to celebrate Disney’s 100th anniversary. The “Walt Disney Tribute Camera” is made using 881 bricks, and features Minifigures of Disney including his greatest creations – Mickey, Minnie, Bambi, and Dumbo. This build pays tribute to the camera that helped Disney reach its iconic status.
