This fantastic product idea, submitted by 2A2A on April 17, 2023, has already captured the hearts of 8,563 LEGO fans and has been recognized as a staff pick.
We are thrilled to announce the arrival of this iconic recreation, inspired by the timeless British cultural icon – the Red London Telephone Box.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the set features 1460 LEGO elements, including an opening door that reveals a beautifully detailed interior. What's more, a light brick embedded in the roof allows you to illuminate the K2 Telephone Box by simply pushing down the top. Alongside the telephone box, you'll find a charming lamppost adorned with flowerpots, set against a backdrop of a cobbled street, invoking a sense of nostalgia and a deep connection to a city steeped in history.
In a dazzling display of creativity and craftsmanship, LEGO enthusiast Donny Chen took center stage at Brickvention 2024 with his extraordinary creation – a majestic Golden Dragon that stole the show.

Brickvention is an annual event that brings together LEGO enthusiasts, builders, and fans from around the world.

In the world of LEGO art, few creations stand out as boldly as the recreation of Katsushika Hokusai's iconic woodblock print, "Under the Wave Off Kanagawa" (commonly known as The Great Wave). This impressive feat was accomplished by none other than LEGO certified professional Jumpei Mitsui, adding a modern and playful twist to an age-old masterpiece.
Before delving into Mitsui's LEGO rendition, it's essential to appreciate the timeless influence of Hokusai himself. The original Great Wave, crafted in 1831, became a symbol of Japanese artistry, inspiring countless artists across the globe. Its enduring legacy is evident in various forms, from book covers to coffee mugs, and even a LEGO set.
