Lego Wants To Hire A Jalopnik Reader

When Jalopnik started back in 1883 as a telegraph-based horseless carriage news service, we had always planned on branching out into job recruiting. I'm happy to say that after over a century of planning, it's happening! And in the best way possible: Lego wants to hire a Jalopnik reader to be a graphic designer. » 2/25/15 11:03am Wednesday 11:03am

This Lego Alfa Romeo 4C Spider even has a flappy gearbox

In all of its beauty, the Alfa Romeo 4C quickly climbed the charts as one of my favorite attainable super-cars. When they released the images of the Spider version, my lust grew even stronger. Jeroen Ottens has now made a Lego Technic version, melding together two great loves of mine in one beautiful package. » 2/04/15 10:09pm 2/04/15 10:09pm

Watch this adorable teaser for the Jurassic World Lego video game

On June 12th we get another visit to Isla Nublar in the sure-to-be-blockbuster movie Jurassic World. Along with the release of the movie comes some six Lego sets that we unfortunately still don't have any images of.

We are getting a wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey Lego set

The latest round of Lego Ideas sets have gone through the cooker and the next set has been announced: Lego WALL-E. Though that set idea looks pretty amazing, many have been waiting for Lego to make a decision about a couple sets that were carry-overs from the last review process. It has been decided, Lego is going… » 2/04/15 12:37pm 2/04/15 12:37pm

Everything's a product in hilarious, honest The Lego Movie trailer

Screen Junkies, along with the help of the folks from Epic Rap Battles of History, have given the honest movie trailer treatment to The Lego Movie. They make some valid points about the parallels to communism in the Lego universe as well as the fact that the movie really is just one big happy commercial for Lego. Even… » 2/03/15 7:04pm 2/03/15 7:04pm

By the power of Grayskull, these Lego He-Man figures have the power

Saturday morning Weekdays after school wouldn't have been the same without He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Along with Lego, the line of toys and the subsequent animated series were a big part of my childhood. LegoJalex has mixed the two together in one beautiful package, creating brick built representations… » 2/02/15 4:34pm 2/02/15 4:34pm

To boldly go where someone can make this model properly

I have made hundreds of attempts to build a proper Enterprise over the years and it always looks like garbage. Leave it to Chris Melby (The Legendary ZMB) to come up with a proper Lego built U.S.S. Enterprise that actually looks fantastic and is huge to boot at over 5 feet in length. We wait with bated breath for… » 1/30/15 4:31pm 1/30/15 4:31pm

Ice cream extends life, ice cream expands consciousness

This Lego mech, by Paddy Bricksplitter, is one of my favorite kind of builds. Taking elements from Ice Cream Machine (70804) and adding some other necessary bits, this Ice Cream Marine is set to wage war on sugar free or low fat enemies everywhere. I really like color scheme and the tanks of dairy on the backpack… » 1/30/15 4:07pm 1/30/15 4:07pm

This micro Lego train station is the happiest place on Earth

I was instantly transported to a childhood visit to Disneyland after seeing this build. This half-minifigure scale representation of the iconic Disneyland Main Street Station is just wonderful. Though Koen apparently started with a train from across the country from Disney World, it was later modified to include the… » 1/30/15 1:24pm 1/30/15 1:24pm

These demolition experts are back to clear space in your Lego city

It is time to clear out some space in your Lego city, and the new sets in the City theme should do just the trick. Four new sets, launching March 1st, are returning construction workers (or in this case a demolition crew) back to the lineup after a 6 year hiatus. The new sets are up on the Lego shop-at-home page for… » 1/29/15 10:53am 1/29/15 10:53am
