If you haven’t been able to scrounge up a few hundred quid to improve your daily commute with an electric scooter, there might be an alternative hiding in your parents’ basement. This electric go-kart is made entirely from Lego, so if you’ve got bins and bins of plastic bricks left over from your childhood, it might be time to dust them all off and get building. Read More >>

Lego’s New Dinosaur Fossils Turn Your Desk Into a Miniature Natural History Museum

You can claim to be interested in historical artefacts like pottery, suits of armour, and maybe even a mummy, but the most compelling reason to visit a museum, even as an adult, are the dinosaur fossils.

Lego Makes it Easier to Donate Old Bricks to Charity

It's no secret we love Lego here at Giz UK. You can build voice-controlled robots with them, recreate your favourite scenes from Star Wars and even make your own custom minifigure. But one thing you can't do, because of the type of plastic they are made from, is recycle them easily. Read More >>

Hands-On With the Berlin Lego Store’s Custom Minifigure Machine

There are a lot of Lego minifigures out there. Too many to count, really, since they've been around for over 40 years, though that hasn't stopped demand for minifigures that Lego hasn't produced. There are plenty of people offering 'custom' figures 'compatible with popular brands'. In other words: knock offs, designed to look like Lego but not actually made by the company themselves. But what if Lego let people create their own minfigs? It's possible, but currently only in one place - the Berlin Lego store. Read More >>

Here are All the New Lego Star Wars Sets Arriving Next Week

This year is a big year for Star Wars, and in addition to the release of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, we're also seeing The Mandalorian - the first live action TV series set in a galaxy far far away. The first proper series, anyway, because the Ewoks movies don't count, and they were never canon to begin with. All that extra Star Wars means the Lego group has plenty of stuff for us to enjoy, and it's released a bunch of them that are hitting shop shelves on 4th October. Read More >>
