I think i may have beat fungus to this....who knows, he usually posts these things neat lego printer it's not exactly photo quality (or fast) but it sure is nifty. i really like that it's got all the lego guys on it as if they're workers in a factory or something

What do you like more, or what did you like more as a kidLego or KnexPersonally i like lego as i think it looks more realistic and i played for days on end when i was younger, also knex is mainly used for guns and occasionally big buildings, but with lego you can make entire worlds!!So far its 5 lego / 3 knex

I was surfing Youtube today, and guess what I found! GOOD ( yes, you heard it right, good) LEGO guns. Can you believe it? Here are some. The Thriller Automatic LEGO crossbow pistol. ( Interesting mech.) Bolt action LEGO crossbow. ( Based off of Thriller auto.) LEGO Mini Pump Action Shotgun. ( Never seen this with K'NEX.) LEGO Pump Action Shotgun. ( Some problems, but still.) LEGO Sniper Rifle. ( Shoots MORE than 25 feet, DJ.) There's LOTS more, but i picked out ones i first came across. IMPORTANT NOTE: LEGO has more variety of pieces, so maybe that explains the innovation. NYPA

A new book is coming out from No Starch Press (whuh?) called Forbidden LEGO. It claims that LEGO is the construction tool of choice for weapons.Two vids to see the weapons in action. Well, it doesn't really make that claim. I just wanted to say it did.

Help me please! Yesterday, when I got home, I found these (legos in picture) in my lego city! Luckily, little other damage was done, but what can I do?! I have never come across this problem before! And when I tried to discipline the rouge legos for their radioactive behavior, they wouldn't listen!!! How do I stop the insolent radioactive leogs?! That;s right, they're even calling themselves leogs now!

Does anyone remember the old game from LEGO, Stormrunner? Where you have to control an RCX to discover what happened to your ship. Well, I just noticed it was kicked of lego.com, and started googling trying to find it. No other site has it, does anyone know where it is.... Or does anyone think that Lego should bring it back?

This LEGO animation has been bouncing all over the Interwebs this weekend. It's pretty stunning stuff since it was all done with LEGO and by one person who clocked 1,500 hours on it. It goes to show how much you can do with a pile of LEGO and a regular digital camera.That all said, the video is still a little slow and can do with about a minute less footage. So I'm definitely curious to see the next video from these guys in another year or so.

So up in Toronto they built a 29.3 meter tall tower of LEGO. It's a new world record. Some "master builders" were overseeing it. There are images of flags on the side.But still, it's just a tower of LEGO. Doesn't really inspire me, but maybe you guys think differently. Am I missing something? Full story

I came across not one, but two very cool Lego sculptures. The first is a perfect rendering of Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye, one of the most famous houses in architecture. Make sure to check out the original pictures of the house along with the Lego reproduction if you haven't seen the house before.The second is a must-see for all Star Wars fans: a nearly 4,000 piece, $400 dollar Lego Death Star diorama. It comes complete with Lego-ized versions of all of the major characters and depicts 14 scenes from the IV and VI. Bad news for all you Jar Jar Binks fans, though: Lego Jar Jar is not included in this set.Villa Savoye via MakeDeath Star

I went to toysrus looking for a present for a cousin and OH my gosh! Knex has Lego men, I knew they had lego like pieces but this is a step to far, I dont even recognize knex anymore, years ago there was a whole isle to the stuff and it had a tall feris wheel on display, now its reduced to the section in between mega blocks and all the lego recycled idea (power miner < rock raiders, atlantis, they did an underwater one before) with only half a shelf and NO tubs other then the cheap filled with tons of bricks What has happend?????

This LEGO rifle by Jack Streat at MOCpages.com is pretty awesome. If there was ever any ideal way to shoot LEGO bricks, this would be it. Even the creator is impressed: This is by far the best rifle i have ever made. it is a working magazine-fed rifle in bolt action configuration, with detachable magazines, sniper scope and bi-pod. Check out the video to see it in action and the link below for a lot more pics. Lee Enfield Bolt Action Sniper Rifle via Neatorama

I saw this on Make this afternoon, and thought I'd pass on a direct link to the creator, Mike Foy. He's got seven pages of variously brutal, brutish, or just post-apocalyptic Lego minifigs and scenes. The couplet is especially chilling -- sort of a mashup of Shelley and Kayyam. Thousands of souls with faceless faces Roaming the world in desolate places.

I have attached images of my second lego computer build. I am now planning a third that will be very similar to this, but with much better components including a fan controller and hot swap hd bay. Does anyone want me to record the process? I have come up with a few great ideas for this type of mod. Also I have just begun design in digital legos and would love any suggestions.

So, I had a cool idea for a desk. I would take the desktop off and cut out the majority of the center of it so it sort of looked like a picture frame. Then I would turn it into a rectangular box on the edges about 6" deep, and then box in the cut out portion. Then I would fill in the center box with some sort of cool LEGO diorama (or anything you want). Add in some cool lighting and slap a piece of glass on the top and it could be pretty sweet. Comments/suggestions? I also need to figure out if I should buy a desk and modify it or just build my own.

I was thinking of making a lego based rpg or some other game(like a strategy game). That will comprise of some basic rules and game workings that every one could play. I'm going to try and make it simple enough to be played easily but complex enough to keep people interested. I will also try to make sure that gaming equipment is kept to a minimum. So you don't need to go out and buy like a 100, 20 sided dice or something. If anyone is interested in helping or testing please say so. I could use all the help i could get. Please say if this is a bad idea though- i don't want to waste my time on it.
