LEGO has been on a role lately. The toy company is following up the release of their Simpsons set with this new Ghostbusters set. LEGO is producing the Ghostbuster set as a celebration of the franchise’s 30th anniversary. It will include the Ecto-1, the team’s classic vehicle, along with mini figure versions of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore. The 508-piece set will also include their paranormal detection equipment, a tracking computer, and logo decorations.
Remember all the toddler poo and snot and barf that was caked in the ball pit at Chuck E. Cheese’s when you were a kid?
Here at SNEAKHYPE, we love anything that has to do with paint and high speed photography. Artist and Photographer Peter Schafrick covered children’s toys in paint and capture the images while they were in flight using High Speed Photography. The paint appears to be an extension of the toys as they fly through the air. Very dope.
Wow! I don’t even want to think about how long this took to put together. This full scale X-Wing (seen in Star Wars) is made from 5,330,200 LEGO bricks. Over 5 million! It weighs over 45,000 pounds, and if you really want to know it took 32 builders 17,336 hours (around 4 months) to complete it.
You know, if you’ve got some money to throw around, this actually would be a sweet idea for a project in your own home — maybe do an entire wall or coffee table covered in cars. Matchbox cars are like 89 cents each and I’m sure you could get some old collections for super cheap off eBay or Craigslist. Artist David T Waller made this dope floor installation, titled Car Atlas, to give you some inspiration.
