See what happens when Lego meets fine art photography

Toy photography is totally my scene. Sometimes, people take it to another level and I just can't help but to get excited. There are quite a few folks whose work with Nendoroids and scale figures crosses the line into art. But...

Lego reveals UCS Tie Fighter: promises they won't get shot down before release

New York Toy Fair gave Lego a platform to show off its new (and long rumored) Ultimate Collector Series TIE Fighter. I would assume it's taken this long to produce the regular TIE Fighter because of its enormous wings/ends. T...

Lego S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier images crash onto the scene

After months of rumors, Lego has finally shown the world its Marvel Super Heroes Helicarrier. Though, I have to say I'm on the disappointed side. It certainly looks big, and at nearly 3000 pieces is a hefty set; but including...

Tomopop Review: Minifigures.com Freddie Mercury photo
Tomopop Review: Minifigures.com Freddie Mercury
by Soul Tsukino

A few weeks ago I was able to do a story on Minifigures, an England-based website where you could buy celebrity LEGO figures. I was happy to see that Queen frontman Freddie Mercury was one of the figures you could buy.

I became a fan of Queen directly as a result of the Wayne's World movie that was released back in 1992, shortly after Freddie's death from AIDS. I was drawn not only by the large bombastic sound, but also the image the band portrayed, and the creativity they showed. Ever since then I've called them my favorite musical act of all time. To say they hold a special place in my mind is an understatement.

Well, through the magic of Tomopop, I was surprised to have a package delivered to my door with a little friend inside!

Not every Lego MOC I see is great enough to be almost ready for stores, but Aaron Fiskum's X34 Landspeeder could get there. It's a very impressive build; all the sides and angles look smooth. You even get a blown engine piece...

Tomopop Review: Brick Label Masterbrick MB-01 Metalhide
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

The great thing about LEGO bricks is that they can be used to build as simple or complex as you want. They're a lot like clay in that sense. Sure, anyone can make a simple LEGO box, or clay flower pot, but in the hands of someone with true talent you get something amazing. Metalhide from Brick Label is that something amazing. They've gone and made something that even Hasbro has yet to do: Take a number of bricks and turn them into a very large and impressive robot that can transform into a vehicle mode without any part swapping or shellparts.

Follow me after the jump to see just what a great imagination and an excellent head for engineering can build!
