On the official website for HOPE, it said there would be a special table for adding to one gigantic LEGO creation. We arrived yesterday and saw little more than a pile of bricks.

Chinese Lion Made From LEGOs

Nelson Yrizarry is pretty decent at his LEGO crafting. This Chinese Lion, typically found at Chinese New Year celebrations worldwide, is constructed from an assload of LEGOs and features intricate details.

LEGO USB 2.0 Bluetooth Dongle

Messing with LEGOs is good times, even if you’re 53. That’s why some geek in Germany turned a few 2×2 transparent bricks (of a variety of colors) into high speed Bluetooth adapters. On sale in limited quantity, these bricks are priced at about $50 before shipping and handling. They’ll give you that “I’m an 8-year-old!” look and at the same ...

Don’t like LEGOs? Then get out of here, you commie bastard. Our man Bram Lambrecht has recreated his very own 1995 Mazda MX-5 convertible in LEGO form.

Fans of the Camaro are among the most hardcore enthusiasts, as can can be seen by this Floridian Lego modeler. Crafting a Camaro using nothing but Legos.
