Game Of Thrones Castles In Motion

Fans of Game of Thrones should recognize these iconic castles from the opening titles of the series. Builder Legopard spent three months recreating six of the locations of Westeros and Essos, not only capturing the look and feel of them, but also adding brilliant mechanical action to all. Check out the video to see them all in motion, and try to keep your jaw from hitting the table.

Bobby The Dog

It’s not very often a LEGO creation will make me laugh out loud (or make any audible noise for that matter) so when one does I know I’ll be blogging it. I could tell when I saw this cute dog MOC by tkel86 that it was mechanical, there were some clues: the lever on the side of course, but also the pins on the shoulders and feet, and possibly the jaw. But when I played the video I was delighted at the full effect. Check out the video below, it’s so worth it.

I’m going to stop you right here, and tell you to watch the video below before continuing to read, I’ll wait…

I spend pretty much every morning, 365 days a year give or take, blogging LEGO creations. I can tell you that an audible reaction from me is pretty rare, but this brilliant little MOC by builder Inthert made me exclaim out loud “holy sh*t!” I’m a Harry Potter fan, and a LEGO fan of course, and I have a soft spot for micro builds and mechanical ingenuity. This sorta ticks all the boxes for me.

Stay On Target!

Builder Josh DaVid LEGO Creations is back with another brilliant kinetic sculpture, this time it’s Star Wars related. Let’s see, Star Wars related, mechanical and LEGO, sounds like my cup of tea (he said, drinking a cup of tea). Check out the video to see not only this thing in motion, but a reveal of the ingenious mechanism that makes it possible.

Static Displays Are So...Static

The LEGO Ideas Tron Light Cycle set is pretty nifty (even if the movie was a let down). But once you've built it the action is sorta over right? I mean they just sit there stuck to their base. Not nearly as exciting as the movie right? Well consummate tinkerer and all around mechanical wizard JK Brickworks wasn't satisfied with that, so he designed a dynamic display for his cycles, and he's shared how on his website.
