Which Cars Would Make An Actually Good Lego Kit?

Lego just officially unveiled its officially licensed kit of the James Bond Aston Martin DB5, complete with ejector seat, radio tracker and the works. When I first saw the kit leaked a couple of weeks ago, even I, a massive Bond fan, was disappointed. But it left me with one question.

This Lego Porsche 911 Looks Like A Murderous Cartoon Frog

This is what Porsche calls the “Porsche Lego Big Brick 911 Turbo 3.0,” which is based off of a real car and has a name that’s just as complicated as most other real Porsche cars have. Porsche calls this Lego rendition “unique,” but all I can see when I look at it is a homicidal cartoon frog that’s also a battle car.

Seeing the First Person View of a Lego Toy Train Riding Around on a Track Is Surprisingly Fun


Seeing the First Person View of a Lego Toy Train Riding Around on a Track Is Surprisingly Fun

Seeing the perspective of a toy train is way, way more fun than it should be. About 160 feet of Lego train tracks were laid out around this guy’s house, through the inside of home, next to his pets, and beyond. The tracks went outside too, winding all over his garden in the front yard, under the wooden fence, and onto the wild grasslands of the backyard. And we get to see the entire ride from the Lego toy train’s perspective. It’s like being on a journey in Toy Story, seeing the different environments of a house from a tiny point of view in massively fun way.

Build an Automatic Cookie Decorating Machine With LEGO Mindstorms 

Decorating cookies by hand can be a pleasant activity, but with a LEGO Mindstorms set, you can crank out a bunch of perfectly iced cookies in no time at all.

LEGO Mindstorms sets can be used to construct almost anything, and Jason and Kristal at JK Brickworks have created a great build for the holidays. With a Minstorms EV3 set (number 31313), you have every component you need to create your own cookie decorating assembly line. All you have to do is download the provided program code and follow the instructions at the link down below. Once it’s assembled and the program is installed, just load in a bag of your favorite icing and start it up with one of the pre-set decorating shapes. Perfect cookies every time. Of course, if you don’t have a LEGO Mindstorms set (they can be pricey), there are still other clever ways to make cookie decorating less tedious.

This Transforming Lego Optimus Prime Must Be Bending the Laws of Physics

Half of me wants to believe that this amazing Lego version of Optimus Prime (the Michael Bay movie version) that can actually transform into a robot is legit. But the other half of me is having a hard time believing that Ralph Savelsberg didn’t just hire Industrial Light & Magic to help fake these photos with CG.
