Fantastic Individual Builds Football Stadiums out of Lego

This just looks fantastic! a creative and talented individual by the name of Chris Smith builds and sells Football Stadiums that have been built out of Lego.

The project in question goes by the name of Brickstand, below is a few images to convey his mini constructions, first up, Upton Park, which is home to long ball team West Ham, ok ok, Slaven Bilic has improved things after Sam Allardyce departed. The detail within the ground is quite something considering this is constructed out of Lego, even the club wording embedded within the seats has been incorporated. The price tag is £299.99 which sounds expensive, but it does come ready built and not just a box of bricks with instructions.

Next up Vicarage Road which is home to newly promoted Watford, I wonder how robust these models are? Just imagine spending £279.99 for the below stadium and then dropping it on the floor. The measurements are 50x50x15cm and is built-in parts which according to the site “is easy to store when not on display”

The last image arrives courtesy of “your going home in an ambulance” Millwall, this model has roughly 1500 bricks within it and measures 65x50x15cm. If you’re worried about shipping in the UK, then don’t as Chris Smith will deliver them to you himself, he does this because there is no adhesive within the bricks and it would be also difficult to trust Royal Mail with these stadiums.

Chris Smith aims to build all 92 grounds in the football league out of Lego, he must have Lego falling out in every direction in his house, by all means check out his website for a complete overview of his work, it’s certainly unique. Lego might be keeping an eye on how far this project will go, if it is successful in the long run then expect Football league kits to be marketed by the company in the near future, I wonder how Chris will feel if Lego make millions out of his concept?

Thank you brickstand for providing us with this information.

Turn any Image into Lego

Lego, those magical blocks that turned children into amazing creators and sent adults to the foot doctor, has been around for many years. You can buy a random box of Lego and build whatever you want until you run out of bricks, or you could buy a kit and follow the instructions.

This new fan-made website allows you to upload absolutely any image you want and convert it into a Lego instruction kit; telling you how many bricks you need and line by line instructions to the placement.

I personally love Lego, I’m 24 and still buy the occasional set, so I ran a little test to see how it worked. With our logo, it shows me a shopping list of all of the Lego bricks needed to complete in a one block thick creation and the instructions of a row by row construction. Our logo might only be 30 rows high, but it is 200 bricks wide.

This could be a nifty little tool if you ever wanted to show off some awesome Lego skills (well not really awesome as you’re following instructions). Imagine the creations that could be made if this tool enabled image stitching for 3D models.

Would you be interested in using this web site? Let us know in the comments what sort of creations you could make or like to see be made.
