The book is packed with stunning photography and informative text as it demonstrates how entire models are built up. Also, the reader will obtain step-by-step visual breakdowns and offering alternative ways to build models. Each chapter can be easily explored as it steadily creates a themed world and ultimately showcases a dynamic diorama of the complete build, showing readers that they too can build up an entire LEGO world from scratch — model by model, brick by brick.
The book covers five worlds:
Outer Space: mech walker, all-purpose robots, forklift robot, space rover, space equipment, planetary pod, space door, sci-fi doors and walls, gear doorway, research lab, hydroponics bay, lab tools, aliens and alien life, space-plants and scenery, micro-scale spaceship, micro-space fleet, micro-scale space buildings, Zycon shuttle, and outer space diorama.
Modern Metropolis: basic building, modular buildings, city buildings, city museum, building roofs, tables and chairs, furniture, around the city, making a car, city vehicles, auto bumpers, lights, signs, signals, farmer’s field, crops and vegetables, plants, on the farm, leisure activities, farmhouse, and modern metropolis diorame.
The Wild West: wagon, wagons roll, western scenery, cavalry fort, jailhouse, around town, Wild West saloon, building signs, tow items, steam train, train carriages, old mine, rolling riverboat, outlaw hideout, and Wild West diorama.
Fantasy Land: fantasy house, cube village, fantasy roofs, fences and pathways, waterfall, fantasy river, flowers, fantasy creatures, tree slide, tree-house, castle walls, castle tower, fancy towers, castle features, cream-pie catapult, and fantasy land diorama.
The Real World: cell phone, technology, stationary, kitchen scale, bathroom, science kit, banana, fruit and veg, gingerbread man, cakes and pastries, popsicle, frozen treats, candies, box of chocolate, and real world diorama.
The book will show how to build the most imaginative world using techniques that will be easy to follow and do for anyone – kids or adults alike. The images included in the book are bright and will demonstrate what the instructions are explaining. I really enjoyed looking at all the examples included in this book. I am speechless to see how the Fantasy river is made – so easy to do…. if only we had all the pieces required. Another favorite of mine is definitively the butterfly and the flower gallery. Oh and the adorable crayon box is just the perfect one to build for playing with dolls for my daughter. And to surprise someone this Christmas you could trick them with a false box of chocolate before giving a real one!
With creative model ideas and visual tips and techniques, LEGO Awesome Ideas will inspire anyone, from beginners to accomplished builders. It is definitively a perfect gift for the LEGO fan in your life this Christmas! Don’t forget the LEGO Ideas Book and the LEGO Play which also contains a ton of ideas to build.
We have the Lego Idea Book and a few other hardback, beautiful Lego books around the house that have been well loved and well used. This new LEGO Awesome Ideas book is full of EVEN MORE fantastic ideas. It is split into five categories: Outer Space, Modern Metropolis, The Wild West, Fantasy Land and The Real World. You can even learn how to build a LEGO world from scratch using the themed worlds section.
A great gift for any Lego enthusiast, it is packed with projects, although there is a need to have a well rounded Lego collection in order to make many of the items. Not a problem for us, but might be for someone just starting on their Lego journey. The photos are lovely, the sections well put together and the instructions are easy to understand, at least they are for my son.
Even the cover is slick, one of those lenticular, 3D moving kind of pieces over the artwork to give it motion and a sense of depth.
They've broken it down into sections - out space, modern metropolis, wild west, fantasy land, and my favorite, the real world.
The very first thing I hit randomly when opening this as a kitchen scale. It's a really neat idea, some brilliant designing for something this simple. And something I never even considered.
Downside is that while my son and I have thousands of dollars of Lego kits and Mega Blok kits, so many things in here will need us to purchase special pieces we don't have (unless we start tearing down some of the larger kits we have on display). What I'd love to see is just a collection of pieces kit specifically made for books like this, even if they had to make the books smaller. Just to make things easier for people who don't have a Lego store nearby.
But there's just some fun things in here for people who like to "think (or build) outside the box." The photos are clear, vivid, and look great. There are small builds, and larger builds like buildings. And since it's not the normal step by step pictures showing the placement of each piece but just photos of completed items, with different views, it lets people exercise some other skills besides the standard "this brick goes here" procedures.
These books are must haves for anyone who is a Lego fan, or has one in the family.
