Since they are made from brand-new LEGO pieces, don’t be fooled by the amazing editing skills of our designer – these vending machines were rendered in such a way that they looked very worn out and used. The demands for minifigure snowballs and cookies were quite off the charts this season, lol.

LEGO Marvel fans will find our next whatnotcollectibles online auction and raffle pretty exciting. After our fun and successful auction of several LEGO Star Wars Minifigures Mystery Packs a couple of days ago, we’re back with another enticing offer that you don’t want to miss. Because at 11:30 AM EST today, Stephen will host this weekend’s TBS whatnot stream and will raffle another $100 LEGO minifig in the likes of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man from 2004.

LEGO has just announced its latest LEGO set in the form of one of the most iconic Autobot in the franchise. And though we need to wait until the end of this month to get our hands on it, builders can start building their own custom LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime even sooner with these neat building instructions from Build Better Bricks.
If you’ve been following our articles here in TBS, you’ll notice that a significant portion of our blogs is dedicated to the unique creations of the LEGO fan community. And as a fan of Generation 1 Transformers, I’m just excited to see this official LEGO version of Optimus, together with other brick-built renditions of some of the most memorable characters of the G1 era. Talk about having Soundwave and Devastator in all their LEGO glory and you’ll get the picture.
And this time around, Build Better Bricks is giving us a treat by letting us create our own custom LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime while we wait for the release of the official LEGO version on June 1.
With only a third of the parts needed to build the actual LEGO Optimus, B3’s custom brick rendition of Prime only requires less than 500 LEGO pieces to put together, making it a great way to jump back and reminisce about the G1 Transformers era without investing too much in new LEGO parts.
While B3’s version of the Optimus’ G1 version may not be at par with the actual 10302 set in terms of scale, this original creation from LEGO Masters Champion Tyler Clites still boasts some nifty features like 24 points of articulation, full transformation to his Semi Truck Mode, and his iconic ion blaster and Matrix of Leadership accessories. Do take note, however, that Build Better Bricks only offers the building instructions to create this custom version of Prime. You’ll have to provide the needed LEGO parts.
And if you want to give this a try, B3 is offering the building instructions to this for a minimal amount of $8. You’ll get high-quality instructions in PDF format, a parts list, and stud.io file that lets you easily import the model into Bricklink to get the parts you need if ever some of them are not available in your collection.
Let me know what you think about this B3 offering, and be sure to visit their website to know more about their custom LEGO Transformers build. While you’re at it, make it a point to see the rest of the custom LEGO builds that B3 has put together.
If you think you’ve seen it all on how you can personalize the LEGO brick or any other LEGO piece, then you’re in for a real treat at the Brickshow Shop. With a wide variety of custom LEGO earrings, you can find the perfect pair to represent your fun and quirky personality, and love for the brick. Since all of our custom LEGO jewelry is made from genuine LEGO pieces, it’s guaranteed to be just as durable and fun as the actual bricks themselves.
LEGO DOTS may have its buildable bracelets and more, but our new line of wearables takes custom LEGO jewelry to a whole new level. They’re completely hypoallergenic and made from surgical-grade steel, so they’re safe and perfect for anyone who’s looking for customized jewelry that will last.

While director/producer Joss Whedon takes a momentary back seat from Zack Snyder’s Justice Leaguestreaming in just a couple of days via HBO Max, Build Better Bricks now relives one of Whedon’s most iconic pop-culture creations in this massive LEGO Serenity MOC.
Yep, as bold as maverick as the crew of the Serenity back then, this next B3 creation is its grandest offer to date. Based on the 2002 hit Fox TV series Firefly by writer and director Joss Whedon, and its 2005 theatrical counterpart, this custom LEGO Serenity build features tons of details that are very much familiar to fans of the TV series and film. Like its original counterpart, this build features the ship’s prominent large rear engine module, a pair of wing-mounted, rotating vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) engines, and a pair of two-man shuttles known in the series as “Beetles”.
On the inside of this brick-built creation, the details are likewise spectacular. We have a fully accessible cockpit, a spacious hallway connecting to the dining area and infirmary. The dining area and most of the ship’s sections may also be accessed by removing its middle top exterior or any of the opening hatches below it. Its rear engine room is also accessible to reveal its full interior.
And with over 2,000 pieces LEGO pieces used to build this custom LEGO Serendipity, it is B3’s largest building instruction ever created following its custom LEGO Milano back in 2017. So if you’re interested to revisit some of those wild space adventures aboard your very own Firefly-class spaceship, be sure to head over to Build Better Bricks to purchase the premium building instructions for this custom LEGO Serendipity MOC. For $25, you’ll get a hefty 285-page building instruction in full PDF format, a parts list, and a Stud.io file that you can easily import to Bricklink to buy the needed LEGO parts that you’ll need. Remember that you’ll need to purchase or provide the required LEGO parts separately, as B3 only offers the building instructions for this massive custom set.
While you’re at it, be sure to check out B3’s buy 2 get 1 promo on all of the building instructions that you will purchase from their store. Happy building!
Last week was a tough one to go through, following the terrible news of the untimely passing of one of MCUs pillars that helped bring to the big screen the mighty character of King T’Challa. And though Chadwick Boseman will be remembered through the many endearing characters in critically acclaimed films such as 42, Marshall, and 21 Bridges, it was in MCU’s Black Panther that he made his mark on Hollywood as one of the most brilliant actors of our time. And as our way of remembering the King, our online storefront The Brick Show Shop, is giving away a complete set of building instructions for a custom LEGO Black Panther Wakanda Statue.
Designed by our very own Tyler Clites (winner of this year’s US LEGO Masters TV Show over at Fox), this custom LEGO Black Panther Wakanda Statue requires 371 LEGO pieces that you can find from your LEGO collection or ordered via Bricklink. Aside from the building instructions, you’ll also get a printable parts list and an .IO file that you can upload over at Bricklink for easy purchasing of parts.
The nice thing about this is that you can get this set of free building instructions without making any qualifying purchases over at our shop. This is our way of showing appreciation to Boseman and the cinematic legacy that he left behind.
As a side note and in case you’ve missed it, Build Better Bricks also has for sale a set of building instructions for you to create a custom LEGO Black Panther Bust. I love to see this one standing side by side together with the Wakanda Statue.
We may never see the likes of Chadwick Boseman any more, but he will always be remembered in the LEGO creations that we will build in honor of his work and legacy. Thanks, King, and live on forever!
