Lego Cookie Cutter

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on September 9th, 2009

Lego Cookie CutterThis one is a win/win. You can’t go wrong with Legos and cookies. Lego cookies are awesome because theoretically you could build with the cookies and then eat your creation with a nice cup of milk. Assuming that it works of course.

According to one review, “the dough sticks to the cutter and is nearly impossible to get it off without ruining the shape”. But that’s what a little flour is for. Anyway, if it works, this is an awesome product for kids and adults alike.

LEGO Clock Radio goes with all of your other LEGO stuff

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on August 13th, 2009

LEGO Clock Radio goes with all of your other LEGO stuffYou’ve seen all of the LEGO gadgets we feature around here day in and day out. You’ve ordered so many that your bedroom looks like Legoland. Well, here’s another. The LEGO Clock Radio is shaped like what else? A giant LEGO brick.

That brick is ten times the size of an original LEGO brick. It features the usual volume knobs and tuner controls, with AM/FM radio and a snooze feature. Unlike real LEGOs this requires 4 AA batteries.

LEGO Minifig Dynamo Flashlight

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2009

LEGO Minifig Dynamo FlashlightWe all love us some LEGO, whether in statue form or as a Foosball table, or whatever. This one takes a green approach, combining LEGO and a flashlight.

This 7″ tall Lego minifig has a set of white LED lights in its right foot that can be used as a flashlight. It’s powered by a dynamo, so you can charge it up by cranking the minifig’s left arm. Yeah, it isn’t really a minifig at 7″ tall. We know.

LEGO coffee table foosball

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2009

LEGO coffee table foosballLEGO fans who are also foosball fans will love this one. This LEGO Coffee Table Foosball Table features custom minifigs and an authentic “faux” oak woodgrain finish. The creator says that he still has to tweak some of the finer details, but it looks pretty amazing. Much nerdier and cooler than the Barbie Foosball table.

The only question we have is, how durable is this? It has some amazing detail and looks like a lot of fun. The pirate flag is a nice touch. Now, who will battle him in the first official LEGO foosball championship? You know it’s coming. Better keep an eye out and get your tickets.

Lego block calculator

Posted in Calculators by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2009

Lego block calculatorCalculators come in all shapes and sizes these days. One of the geekiest and neatest may just be this Lego calculator. It could help you count all of the Lego pieces that you have stored in that dumpster next to the garage or count how many bricks it will take to make a cool statue.

This one comes in four colors, red, blue, green and black. Not sure if you can actually connect your Lego pieces to this though and get creative. The building block calculator will be available in August, but you can pre-order it now for $27.

Fully-functional LEGO combination safe

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2009

Fully-functional LEGO combination safeRemember that cool working Lego safe we featured awhile back? Well now somebody has created a fully functional Lego combination safe. Just put all of your valuables in this thing and they will be…well, not safe really. We’re talking Legos. But it might be fun to build one.

Just follow Merijn van Wouden’s lead and the link for detailed step-by-step instructions and a cool video to show how the mechanisms work. Hey, you gotta put your monopoly money somewhere.

Gold And silver iPod Lego speakers

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on July 2nd, 2009

Gold And silver iPod Lego speakersNothing says geek like Lego. And nothing ups your status to elite geek like a gold or silver Lego iPod speaker. That’s right, the classic iPod Lego Speaker is now available in silver and gold metallic colors.

They retail for $25 each, but your friends will think you paid more. So go on and bling up that geek desktop. No batteries needed since these suck power from your iPod when plugged in via USB. Go on. Order away. We know you like the shiny stuff. Us too.

Lego robot dock assimilates iPods

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on June 17th, 2009

Lego Robot dock assimilates iPodsYou ask us, this is a pretty cool use of Legos. And if companies don’t want to build robot iPod docks, then damnit, we will make our own. The creator actually built this bot-dock about 2 years ago, and only recently decided that it was time to share it with the internet.

The dock is a cannibalized iPod mini dock, and the robot/base is a mashup of several lego kits. (The AT-AT on the right claw gives it away. That, and the LEGOLAND sticker which came with Lego Soccer.) You can find more pics on flickr.

Lego USB hubs are stackable

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on May 13th, 2009

Lego USB hubs are stackableWe’ve seen our share of Lego USB drives, but these new Lego USB hubs are actually stackable, therefore totally awesome.

Each Lego USB Hub comes with four USB ports, and in a variety of colors that include red, blue, yellow and black. Sadly, they aren’t an official Lego product and so are only available in Korea for about $12 each. That’s a shame. I really wanted to build an entire Lego wall using these and go for the coveted Guinness world record of “Most hubs in a single wall, made by some lonely dork”.

Awesome Lego Donkey Kong level

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2009

Awesome Lego Donkey Kong levelThis is one of the cooler Lego Donkey Kong things we’ve seen in quite some time. Sure, it doesn’t move and actually do stuff like this one, but just look at all that amazing detail.

Hammers, barrels,fire, it has it all. It’s all the more impressive because it doesn’t move. After taking it in for a bit, you feel like it could/should. Sure, Mario and the Princess are just generic Lego people, but that’s maybe it’s only flaw. Look at those ladders and beams. My inner nerd is happy now and so I share it with you.

LEGO Ghostbuster’s Ecto 1 car

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2009

LEGO Ghostbuster’s Ecto 1 carWe’re hoping that this Ghostbuster’s Ecto 1 car will inspire LEGO to issue some official Ghostbusters sets. This beautiful replica comes from LEGO brickmaster Rocko and it’s awesome.

It’s all ready to lay the smack down on some ghosts while violating every traffic law in the state of New York.(Well, the lego New York that you build.) Rocko does great work. Come on LEGO, show some Ghostbusters love.

LEGO movie theater with working projector

Posted in Home Theater by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2009

LEGO movie theater with working projectorThis tiny LEGO movie theater is awesome. It actually features a working, very tiny movie projector. The projector works at 24 fps, so it may not be good picture quality, but Lego minifigs have a different eyesight than you have. It’s nicely detailed. Even the seats are numbered. Make sure you check out the video below.

The builder, Ricardo M. Oliv, did an awesome job. Now all he needs is full length movies and he can sell tickets to other geeks who can sit their minifigs in the seats with a miniature popcorn and soda.

7 foot long LEGO Star Wars Mon Calamari cruiser

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2009

7 foot long LEGO Star Wars Mon Calamari cruiserYou can buy anything and everything Star Wars if you are an extreme geek, but this here ship is so awesome, it beats all of them. This seven foot long model of the Calamari Cruiser from Return of The Jedi was built by Thomas Benedikt who used 30,500 Lego pieces. It took about 11 months to get it complete with all that detail. That’s 52 pounds of Lego.

The end cost was $5500. And it does more than just look awesome too. It also has an integrated lighting system for cool effects. Thomas Benedikt is obviously a huge fan as well as super talented.

LEGO House is an amazingly detailed computer

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2009

LEGO House is an amazingly detailed computerWe’ve seen some pretty impressive Lego creations. Whether it’s the Lego Uzi, the Lego Playstation, or the old Lego safe, one thing is for sure. We love playing with Legos.

This functional LEGO house is a working computer. But the amount of detail that went into it is simply stunning. You could look at it all day and still find more things that you missed. Sadly, the display was not given the LEGO treatment. Hit the link below for a video.

Fully-Automatic LEGO Uzi

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2009

Fully-Automatic LEGO UziWe’ve seen Lego guns before, but this one is pretty special. It was inspired by the Micro Uzi and this LEGO weapon packs a punch. It can shoot dozens of rubber bands in just seconds.

Flip the switch and it can go from semi-automatic to fully-automatic. You’ll want to hit the link for a video of the uzi in action, where you will see that this is not your average wimpy rubber band gun. It can fire off rounds as fast as you can pull the trigger. The secret apparently is in the 8 x 1 LEGO beam that pivots around it’s center, for its firing action.
