Lego Flamethrower

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Yet another reason why you shouldn’t anger a nerd…


”This homemade LEGO flamethrower is completely built with LEGO toy building bricks. Only thing not LEGO is a piece of string and a refill bottle of butane gas which is commonly used in butane lighters and can be bought in almost any supermarket or grocery store”

I’m sure his local bullies are shitting bricks…

”What has occured in the world of Lego?” roared the maniacal hoards,

Well, Dirk has made this half size replica of the Venus de Milo,

and the Lego Architecture range hopes to inspire creative construction in a new generation,


Frank Lloyd Wright died in 1959 (6 months before the Guggenheim opened), it’s hard to know exactly what he would have thought about this lego tribute, but I suspect his first comment would be
” Erm, that’s not really what it look’s like…

That is all.

”What has occurred in the the world of Lego?” roared the maniacal hoards…

If you pop by the Nintendo World store at Rockefeller Center (NYC) you can see Sean Kenny’s impressively large Lego Dsi,


Here it is coming together…

You may remember Sean from the high profile construction of the travesty of typography that is the google logo…


Or his Yankee Stadium replica…

Nathan Proudlove has made this excellent Disney World inspired Sea monster, Family Ness anyone?
Kids today don’t even know what a thistle whistle is…


Godzilla fan Teenlego has made this atmospheric homage…

and this in game model is the only image we can show you of the upcoming Lego Universe, an upcoming MMO adventure game from NetDevil,


It won’t be out this year and a lots of the gameplay details are being kept under wraps, one of the most interesting features about this game is that you can build your own Lego
models within the world, which sounds pretty standard but the
interesting part is that you’ll be able to order whatever you build
in-game as a real-world bespoke Lego kit… Sweet.

”What, Already?” pondered the perplexed assembly…

Well, I had a chat with Paul Hamlet AKA Hype-R about his excellent costume featured in the last Lego News… and here it be…


I made him for a 3 day music festival event. The theme was the 80’s and my friends and I decided to do 80’s kids heroes. He came about from that general idea.
We generally attend large 2000+ venues and event on a monthly basis and its always themed.

How long did it take to make?

It’s all cardboard based on top of a builders hard hat. It took 3 long evenings to make and paint, including the hands.

Did anyone freak out when they saw you?
(I’d have been in the corner having flashbacks from that time Berty Basset the Allsorts man kicked my ass)

Lol. Plenty of people. Never seen people so excited to see a kids toy in fully size and real life. Their eyes lit up like Christmas morning. Lots of hugs and photos all round.

Do you have any plans for supervilliany/bank heists/gang warfare?

Maybe not anything so evil but my friends have talked about getting out in the town and other events and doing ‘The adventures of…’ photo type thing. Could be very funny. Just waiting for the weather to clear up so he doesn’t melt 

What’s next for Lego man? Are you fashioning a massive Indiana Jones hat as we speak?

Hats and wigs have been on the books since the start. Pop them on the stud like the real thing. I’m contemplating a Mk2 version from either fibreglass or plastics to get the real look and shine. It’s been such a hit its worth it.
I may even mount a video camera inside to capture people’s reactions too.

Can’t Wait, Cheers Paul…
