This amazing LEGO Batcave was created by Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey, was made from over 20,000 bricks, took more than 800 hours to build over a 12 week period and weighs a whopping 100 pounds. Carlyle and Wayne said “The features of this build include the Cave itself with what we think is the most “cave-ish” cave ever constructed. Added to that we have an operating turntable for the Batmobile, a moving costume/weapons selection wall and the BatPlane Lift. Surrounding all of this is the remarkable lighting effects that bring our BatCave to life.” Take a look at pictures below, this is ridiculously cool! Incredible details and wonderful lighting effects.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of LEGO blocks being introduced in Japan, the Danish company organized a cross-country workshop called “Build Up Japan” in which over 5,000 children created their visions of future Japanese buildings. The assembled pieces were all brought to Tokyo and assembled as a giant white map. Rather than recreating existing landmarks, the adorable children were encouraged to use their imaginations to create what they wanted Japan to look like. The results look pretty remarkable. In total, 1.8 millions LEGO blocks were used and a stunning metropolis was born. [source]
