LEGO Picks of the Month - March 2016

A couple of MOCs created by fellow AFOLs really stood out this month, including:

  • A 22-foot long, 4.5-feet high, 4.5-feet wide, and 550 pound LEGO USS Intrepid
  • The largest X-Wing fighter created in history that’s built using an astounding 5,335,200 LEGO bricks
  • A LEGO-built Millennium Falcon that’s designed to fit the minifigures
  • A highly-detailed LEGO sushi bar which features a workable moving conveyor belt
  • A life-sized Hulkbuster that’s constructed using more than 1 million LEGO bricks
  • A LEGO-made dress created using 12,000 individual LEGO Technic pieces by a fellow AFOL for his wife to wear to a LEGO convention

Besides MOCs, some of the other most interesting news include a “beginners’ guide” to buying LEGO for your child for the first time, as well as an amazing discovery in that, a small part of our brain actually believe that the tiny plastic yellow people of the LEGO world are real.
