Although they are toys, Legos inspire amazing creations. LEGO artists make use of the small plastic bricks to produce everything from robots to architecture. Even the engineers of the company design new elements that allow builders to build more complex models. Erik Varszegi, a Master Builder who works for the Lego Group in Billund, Denmark developed a innovative element this year which is the curved slope. It allows Lego users to design more slanted designs while adhering to the company’s strict colour palette. The slopes can also be used to create a more dynamic shape such as an angled staircase.

Some Lego sets are the result of professional designers’ work while others are the result of the wildly popular Lego Ideas program. The Ideas line allows anyone to design a set and have it manufactured, and offers fame and a percentage of sales to designers who can convince 10,000 peers that their design deserves to go into production. It’s not a surprise that the most elaborate and stunning sets usually garner the most praise, especially when they are based on iconic characters or scenes from movies, television shows, or in real life.

One of the most impressive Lego designs are two iconic space-themed models including the NASA spaceship Discovery and one of the Hubble Telescope. Each telescope comes with a display plaque and a miniature Lego version of the inventor. Other impressive models include frames of a rainbow, a steampunk dragon and a model of the Palace of Westminster.
