Several of his fellow builders have been paying tribute to Ingmar in the most appropriate way; by building incredible trucks inspired […]
Flickr’s Dennis Bosman (aka legotrucks) builds some of the very best Lego models of any type, with a level of realism that exceeds even that of LEGO’s own master model-makers. This is his latest incredible build, a pair of impossibly well-detailed heavy haulage trucks as run by the Van der Vlist company in the Netherlands. […]

A peaceful morning in TLCB Towers was shattered today by the sound of something heavy and metallic hitting something soft and fleshy. The two objects in question turned out to be a desk lamp and an Elf, which was itself armed with a stolen hole-punch for defence-by-body-piercing. With the two combatants separated, one of which was […]

So without further ado, it’s time for […]
