LEGO is awesome. I am not sure I can make it clearer than that, other than by sitting you down, pouring a box of it out in front of you and then leaving you to play for an hour or so. I guarantee that when I returned I would find you still playing, eyes glazed, intently clipping bricks together and building your own little universe. LEGO doesn’t just have to be for kids, in fact why should they have all the fun?
Now LEGO is not just a building tool for creative sprogs, it can be used for many things. For instance LEGO makes an excellent weapon. How many people have stepped on a LEGO brick with bare feet? I have and I can confirm it hurts like a mother – a floor covered with strategically placed bricks is a LEGO landmine. It can also be used for fixing wobbly tables, currency in poker games, spider traps (best not to ask me about that one as it seriously freaks me out) and it is the inspiration for some awesome video games and films. Best and most fun of all though (in my opinion) is LEGO art (though in all honesty you can’t really beat a good play session).
There are so many awesome pictures on the web of LEGO art and it amazes me what people manage to come up with, proving that if you have imagination, some LEGO and a camera, the possibilities are limitless. From creating your very own fight scene to recreating a movie poster, there is so much you can do.
I have collected 20 images below of what film would be like if LEGO got its knobbly little bricks all over it. Enjoy!
