The LEGO Technic Ferrari 488 GTE “AF Corse #51” celebrated a milestone as being the company’s first model to take on the legendary Modena circuit in Italy. This was achieved by installing a brick version of the supercar on a real Ferrari 488 GTE, driven by Giancarlo Fisichella, Ferrari Competizioni GT’s official driver.
The LEGO Art World Map (31203) is now the company’s largest set ever with 11,695-pieces, which lets you create a pixel-like recreation of the Earth from 2D tiles. How does it work? You use customizable brick-built pins that can be put in certain spots to mark out destinations already visited or highlight those still on your bucket list.
The LEGO Group has revealed their all-new Spider-Man Daily Bugle (76178) set, which is essentially a miniature replica of the iconic newspaper building, complete with editor J. Jonah Jameson’s, and Peter Parker’s offices. Standing 2.7ft (82cm) tall and consisting of 3,772-pieces, it’s exquisitely detailed both inside and out, with the set comprised of three floors, the front street as well as the back alley.
This may not be the first Adidas and LEGO collaboration, but definitely the most creative. Called Ultraboost DNA x LEGO Plates, these running shoes boast a fully customizable Ultraboost cage that have studs for bricks, allowing you to create your own designs. To be more specific, the pair of shoes feature LEGO brick 3-Stripes to “celebrate of all the builders, dreamers and risk-takers who are changing the game in their own way.”
Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night was painted in June 1889 and shows the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before sunrise, with the addition of a make believe village added in for ambience. One brick artist recreated this famous scene using LEGO and their set is becoming a reality. That’s right, soon this masterpiece can be sitting on your desk, minifigure van Gogh, easel, painting pallete and all.
