Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What's the difference between a tile and a plate? Why isn't it a good idea to stack bricks in columns to make a wall? How do you build a LEGO mosaic or build at different scales? You'll find the answers to these and other questions in The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide.

Now in full color, this brand-new edition of a well-loved favorite will show you how to:

  • Construct models that won't fall apart
  • Choose the right pieces and substitute when needed
  • Build to micro, jumbo, and miniland scale
  • Make playable board games out of LEGO pieces
  • Create photo mosaics and curved sculptures
  • Build a miniature space shuttle, a minifig-sized train station, and more

Of course, the real fun of LEGO building lies in creating your own models—from choosing the subject to clicking that final brick into place. Learn how in The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide.

Includes the Brickopedia, a visual dictionary of nearly 300 of the most commonly used LEGO elements!

Synopsis:

With close to 100,000 copies in print, few would argue with the success of The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide. Capitalizing on the success of the original, this revised second edition still chronicles the various techniques that fans use to build their LEGO creations, but this time everything is in color. Readers learn how to build sturdy walls and a basic sphere, work with the different scale modeling (from mini to macro), use good design techniques, and even get tips on the best ways to sort and store their LEGO pieces. Readers of the first edition will love the highly-rendered models in this one and that's sure to make this book a great holiday gift.
