Brick master Ryan McNaught used 120,000 LEGO bricks to recreate the doomed Titanic breaking in half after hitting the iceberg. This isn't just some empty model, he added numerous minifigures in action poses to lighten the mood, with some actually in the water and / or boats. Unfortunately (or fortunately), there are no Jack and Rose sightings from the movie version. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
A 1329-piece LEGO Millennium Falcon already exists, but fan Marshal Banana went above and beyond to create his own 22-pound version of the famous starship. "It took me a whole year to accomplish this build (including planning and collecting bricks). My main goal was to present the model in a flying position, which was a huge task. Due to its internal framework it was not possible to include an interior, but I was able to fully lighten the model. And there was still enough space left to include a detailed cockpit (with 4 seats), gunner's platform and a lowering ramp," said Marshal. Continue reading for more pictures of the Falcon.

LEGO can be used to build just about anything these days, including video game weapons. Brick master "ZaziNombies" specializes in recreating things he sees in popular video games, and Fallout's Fat Man is just one example. It's made from more than 2,500 pieces, measures in at just over 4-feet in length, and weighs a hefty 10-pounds. For ammo, it uses a Mini Nuke piece, which looks just like a giant zeppelin (sourced from the 5956-1: Expedition Balloon set). Continue reading for more.
Elementary school teacher Alycia Zimmerman found that her students were not responding well to traditional math assignments, so she decided to use LEGO bricks instead to develop their spatial and proportional awareness. Since these bricks are already marked with studs grouped in twos, students can easily use them to identify patterns, making arithmetic concepts understandable, while also providing a fun experience. Continue reading for more pictures of LEGO brick math. Click here to view the adventures of LEGO Star Wars characters.
Brick master Cody Fowler combined two of his passions, Halo 5 and LEGO, for a massive project that took approximately 3-years to complete using more than 10,000 bricks. This UNSC ship recreation not only looks the part, but blue LEDs were installed for added effect. Unlike similar builds, you won't find any stacks on this vessel, as everything was carefully planned to have only two support beams showing. Continue reading for a couple more pictures.
Let's face it, anyone, child or adult, who still has LEGO bricks lying around their home, has probably stepped on a few over the years, and it's definitely not an experience you want to remember. Introducing Anti-Lego Slippers by France-based Brand Station, which are limited to just 1500-pairs, and boast thicker padding.

Brick master Alec Doede spent approximately 6-months constructing an impressive 6-foot-long, Venator-class Star Destroyer from Star Wars Battlefront II. "One year ago I began planning my largest MOC yet, the Venator from Star Wars. The MOC itself took 6 months of building and around 15,000 parts. It measures over 6 ft. and is 220 studs long. Thanks to GamerLUG for the support during the building process," said Doede. Continue reading for more pictures.
Jason Allemann has always been a LEGO fanatic, but now after years of building, he's created something truly unique, a fully-functional mosaic printer. Think of it as a cross between a 3D printer, a traditional inkjet printer, and scanner, but built entirely with a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 set. Simply put, the machine can scan an image, and then recreate a mosaic of it. Continue reading for four more videos and additional information.
