The Best Lego Designs

Şekil Resim Bir

Legos are toys, but they inspire amazing creations. LEGO artists make use of small plastic bricks to design everything from robots to architectural models. Even the engineers of the company create new elements to allow builders to build more complex models. Erik Varszegi is a Master Builder at the Lego Group, Billund, Denmark. He created the new element for this year, namely the curving slope. It allows Lego users make more slanted designs while adhering to the company’s strict color palette. The slopes can also be used to create more dynamic shapes like an angled staircase.

Certain Lego sets are the result of professional designers’ work while others are the product of the wildly popular Lego Ideas program. The Ideas line gives anyone the chance to design a set and have it built, granting fame and a percentage of sales to any designer who can convince 10,000 peers that their design deserves to go into production. It’s no surprise that the more elaborate and awe-inspiring sets typically garner the most acclaim — especially when they include iconic scenes or characters from TV shows, movies or from real life.

Two space icons are among the top Lego models that are available: the NASA shuttle Discovery and the Hubble Telescope model. Each telescope comes with a plaque for display and a miniature Lego version of its creator. Other impressive models include a frame Rainbow as well as a Steampunk Dragon and a replica of Westminster Palace.
