This Incredible Lego Recreation Of Erebor Is Over Five Feet Tall

You can say a lot of bad things about Battle of the Five Armies, but its glorious shots of the Dwarven Kingdom of Erebor in the Misty Mountains were definitely a treat. It looks just as amazing when remade in Lego, on a truly massive scale — something that took Michał Kaźmierczak 7 months of building to do! » 4/08/15 12:00pm 4/08/15 12:00pm

Everything about this 8-inch Lego Stormtrooper figure is perfect

This Working Lego Gearbox Is As Close As You'll Get To The Real Thing

Letting 1930s GM teach you how a transmission works is great and all, but 1930s technology was limited in that it couldn’t actually show you the internal bits of a transmission in motion. Luckily, humanity has advanced to the point where there is a new solution, for your internal-transmission-workings desires. It’s… » 3/23/15 3:14pm 3/23/15 3:14pm

A Giant Cubic Lego Ball Maze That's an Absolute Work of Art

Some people claim it's impossible to define what art is, but those people clearly haven't seen Flickr user Legohaulic's elaborate Lego cube that contains a twisting, turning ball maze on the inside. It's almost like a real-life version of an Escher sketch, and it equally deserves time in an art gallery. » 3/19/15 1:16pm 3/19/15 1:16pm

The BTTF clock tower scene perfectly recreated with Lego

If you needed any further proof that everything is better with Lego, the folks at Macro Lego Universe recreated the iconic clock tower scene from the end of the original Back to the Future movie.

A perfect functioning Lego combine will make you want to be a farmer

Unless you actually work on a farm, it's hard to get excited over toy versions of farming equipment. But Michał Skorupka—aka Eric Trax—has somehow made us want to tear down the Lamborghini and Ferrari posters on our walls, and replace them with images of a Claas Jaguar forage harvester. Or at least his perfect Lego… » 3/02/15 3:31pm 3/02/15 3:31pm

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.
