Startup: When Old Meets New

Lego has been around for decades now; Portal 2, on the other hand is brand new. What happens when an enthusiastic fan’s two worlds collide? Why, he starts building Lego tributes, of course.

Courtesy of a tip from our own msz comes this impressive tribute to the two robots in the multiplayer segment of Portal 2. Simply put, we only wish we had that much time on our hands. Oh, and that much Lego.

    I have the big pile of bricks but not the time… Too many projects!

    I'm sad to admit that my wife has become the Lego master in our house. One time she figured-out how to make this with my oldest son just from seeing a handful of pictures on the internet:

    Right now she is probably digging through bins of bricks trying to figure-out how to make these:

    awesome to see Hooniverse and AT line up!

    I own the whole line of Ferrari branded LEGO TECHNIC cars…. i take them apart frequently just for the fun of building them again. I hope to get to the level I was at with my space shuttle set (the one from the early 90s… looked for the model number/pic.. but couldn't find it in a quick search) 20 minutes, from a bucket, no instructions…

      1682? Got that. Very little of it is in the same place though.
      You have the 1:10 Enzo? I really wanted one of those until I found out how expensive they are.
