More Goodies from Ace & Ryan

Wow, the guys from FBTB dun seem to be sleeping… everytime I check back there are more nicely sorted (and well taken) pictures on the FBTB Flickr Photostream (by sets).  Thanks guys!! 😀

Like this Lightning McQueen made of 325,000 bricks:

Or all these new licensed products, some which look really good! (Ok, I’ve only copied those I find interesting but still quite a lot):

I’ll leave you to browse thru the rest.  Too many details to mention ranging from the glass bottle & globe in the POTC sets to pics of the new Cars range to how the UFO abduction function works, to details of Kingdom’s Mill Village Raid (goats, the windmill mechanism, chickens, etc)…

Makedo Connectors

It was the Kong that wowed me…

And of course if you have ever wondered what you can make out of the many brown carton boxes you have accumulated from online LEGO shopping… Makedo seems to provide a playful (but really space consuming!) solution.  Want to know more? Head over to Makedo’s website.

Free Download of Marcos Bessa’s Models

Update: I don’t know why, but I can’t link the pics to the websites.  So to be clear, you have to go to his blog to download the files (LINK HERE) and to Flickr to see the rest of his portfolio (LINK HERE)


Remember Marcos Bessa? (Yep, he has become a LEGO Designer – read HERE).  The good news is that he has kindly put up his LDD files on his blog so you can now download for free his digital creations here from his blog.

I also just notice that Marcos shared his portfolio created in July 2010 for the LEGO Designer position.  Here’s a sample:

Nice huh? More in Marcos Bessa’s Flickr.

LEGO Rube Goldberg Machine

Wikipedia defines a Rube Goldberg Machine as “a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg.”

Here is the LEGO version by talapz, the creator of the amazing LEGO Pop-up Kinkaku-ji (which ranks as one of my favourite LEGO videos of all time). 

Amazing how many takes it took to capture this short rube goldberg video… 187 (!!!)

LEGO Rube Goldberg Machine レゴのピタゴラ装置

Ok, I can’t resist posting this video as well…

LEGO Pop-up Kinkaku-ji レゴで飛び出る金閣寺(鹿苑寺)

Once again, Japanese AFOLs rock… I know, the vids have been out for a while but they are still amazing even with a second viewing. 😛


This pair of lovely seahorses were built in just 3-3.5 hours by retinence.  Some people are just talented, obviously.

Inside the Spraycan series

The latest MOC of ‘Inside the Spraycan’ series by Cole Bl♠q is brilliant.
