Watch this time-lapse Lego build of life-size 1964 Ford Mustang

To be specific, it's a model of a first year Mustang coupe, known as a 1964 1/2 model. From LEGOLAND Florida Resort where it's on permanent display:

Made out of 194,900 LEGO and DUPLO® bricks, the giant model (named #BrickPony) took approximately 1,200 hours to assemble by a team of veteran Master Builders at LEGO Systems, Inc., in Enfield, Conn.

#BrickPony measures more than 15 feet long, nearly 6 feet wide and more than 4 feet tall. It weighs 1,712 pounds, of which 960 pounds are LEGO bricks and 752 pounds is its aluminum chassis.

A few surprises were added under its hood, including a virtual horn and the sounds of a real Mustang engine — a first for a life-size LEGO vehicle — plus working headlights and taillights.

LEGO automatic drawing machine

Jason Allemann built a neat LEGO Drawing Machine, inspired by a Spirograph and a 1950s toy called the Hoot Nanny or Magic Designer.

It can create many different patterns by changing the configuration of the model," Allemann writes. "You can also draw multiple patterns on the same piece of paper to create even more complex designs."

He's posted the building instructions on his site JKBrickworks.com.

Watch The Beatles' LEGO Submarine

2607

"The Beatles’ LEGO Yellow Submarine vs. the Sea Monster," a promo video for The Beatles Yellow Submarine set due out next month. And yes, there's a Blue Meanie included. The concept for the set came from the LEGO Ideas crowdsourcing program, a submission from a fellow named Kevin Szeto:

"As an amateur musician and songwriter, I have always been drawn to the music of The Beatles," Szeto wrote. "The creation of the Yellow Submarine model was really my way of showing my affection for The Beatles, as well as trying to pay a small tribute to The Beatles phenomenon. The Yellow Submarine is bright, fun, and colourful, which also made it a good subject to translate into LEGO form."

Rarely do I hear "Oh, awesome!" when I hand my daughter a book. David Scarfe's Geeky LEGO Crafts also elected squeals of delight.

Packed with projects like building your own Space Invaders, and a cassette tape, Geeky LEGO Crafts immediately led us to dragging out a few tubs of LEGO and to get snapping! The directions are great, and easy to follow.

We especially enjoy the Tetrix fridge magnets!

Tiny lego typewriter

Benjamin Cheh and Jeffrey Kong made this prototype Lego typewriter a couple of years ago: "a perfect example of how LEGO elements can pack so much detail in something so small. A retro creation for both the young and the young at heart – imagine this typewriter on your desk!" Their site's a treasure trove of Lego creations. [more, more] Read the rest

LEGO Architecture Studio

1210 white and transparent pieces make up the LEGO Architecture Studio. This fantastic set is geared towards builders!

Summer is here and I'm running out of ways to occupy the kid!

Aside from a whole lot of pieces, I'm impressed with this set. Switching to a solid white color scheme eliminates a lot of random searching for just the right shape and COLOR piece. The guide book will teach you to build architectural features, and inspire you to design buildings on your own, which is what this set is for.
