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.

Book Bargains Review


This book is should be titled Everything You Need To Know About Legos..and Then Some!   While I'm not an expert at Legos, I like to dabble with my kids, but hubby is the go-to person in this area.  He and my boys were thrilled when I received this book.  There were tons of tips, tricks, and techniques for creating and building projects from vehicles, to buildings, to mosaics, to board games.  You will find ideas for any level of achievement, from beginner to expert.  It contains so much information that you will find your building skills improving over a short period of time.  The author believes that the key to creating and enjoying success is careful planning and he proceeds to walk you through the planning process. This is a great tool to increase your knowledge and ability in your Lego building hobby.
