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]
As these incredible pictures show, Certified Lego builder Ryan McNaught has gone into extraordinary detail to recreate the famous monument in Lego form – the World’s First Rome’s LEGO Colosseum. Using 200,000 Lego bricks, the model is presented in cross-section with half in its present day ruined form and half as it was when Rome’s original Colosseum was built, circa 80 AD. The pristine half, with its immaculate array of articulated arches and columns, is festooned with figures in period dress, perched on the tiered seating observing a gladiator fight. The other half of the model is riddled with crevices–spacing between the blocks meant to simulate the crumbling state of the Colosseum today, where tourists roam, eating gelato and snapping photos of cloak-and-helmeted actors. The level of detail of the LEGO Colosseum is just stunning! Watch all the details from McNaught’s model on Flickr. [source]
It looks like people just can’t stop loving LEGO! After the Lego stair railing we talked last week, A German artist by the name of MEGX took on a the task to transform a regular overpass in Germany into a LEGO bridge. Being that LEGOs are not ideal for load bearing, he painted the bridge to create the illusion bridge were constructed of LEGO blocks. The whole process took nearly 4 weeks and the result is amazing! Love to see these big toy in my city too! [source].
