Lego can be used to create anything. Most people stick to the Minifigure scale when building. But, when you go slightly larger you can create stuff that looks extremely realistic. This very retro Lego Kitchen looks like it could be at home in the 1970s. Some the details are perfect, the orange kitchen walls, the tile counter top, and old radio. Using the Lego grill piece for the mini blinds is ingenious. As is including the electrical cords for the hanging lamp, and portable radio.
If you are looking for a way to spice up your Lego pumpkins this year, then this Pumpkinbot is for you. The whole thing transforms from an innocent looking pumpkin into a deadly battle bot.

ATLAS and P-Body, also known as Blue and Orange, are everybody’s favorite playable robots from Portal 2. They were created by GLaDOS as a means to replace human subjects in the Cooperative Testing Initiative at the Aperture Science Enrichment Center.
Fun robot fact: ATLAS (the round one) is male, and P-Body (the tall one) is female.
Here they have been recreated in Lego. The overall shape and design match up pretty well when compared to the source material. A difficult achievement, considering how intricate and non-Lego like their design is. This MOC is a perfect example in how integrating rubber bands into your builds can help you build the impossible. Check out the rubber bands wrapping around their core, and delicate joints.
For comparison, make sure check out ATLAS and P-Body in the cooperative trailer from Portal 2. Now to spend an hour watching Portal 2 videos on YouTube…
ATLAS & P-Body were built by Eldeeem and can be seen over at Flickr:
