Brick master Peter Blackert saw the Tesla Cybertruck / Cyberquad ATV and knew straight away that these were definitely vehicles that could be recreated with LEGO pieces. For those who missed the unveiling, three trims have been announced so far, with driving range estimates between 250–500 miles on a full charge and an estimated 0–60 mph as fast as 2.9-seconds for the tri-motor AWD model.
Unlike the smaller LEGO Star Wars X-Wing sets you see in stores, this one was built using 2.5-million pieces by a 10-person team, led by LEGO Certified Professional Georg Schmitt, atop Jungfraujoch, a saddle connecting the two peaks, Jungfrau and Mönch, in Switzerland. This massive model spans an impressive 10 x 10 meters, and the entire thing took over 1,500 hours of work to complete.
If you weren’t able to attend Comic-Con in San Diego this year and love Iron Man, here’s an up-close look at the incredible creation Marvel debuted there. Simply put, it’s a life-sized, 188-pound Iron Man statue that stands 6.5-feet tall and is comprised of 35,119 individual LEGO pieces. This project took Lead Model Designers Greg Omartian and Senior Model Builder Jeff Rusby over 255 hours to finish, and a fascinating video was released showing the entire build and how they planned everything perfectly.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Friends television show, the 1,070-piece LEGO Ideas (21319) Central Perk set will be hitting stores soon. It features the iconic seating area, complete with a removable couch, armchair and two chairs for the friends cast. That’s not all, you also get the stage where Phoebe played the guitar and performed her songs as well as where Ross once jammed on his keyboard, as well as 7 minifigures.
