Someone built ‘Game Of Thrones’ Throne Room Entirely Out Of Lego

This recreation of the Red Keep throne room built from scratch using 15,000 Lego bricks is probably the most impressive fan dedication to Game of Thrones yet, and it also makes you forget about all the terrible stuff that’s gone down in the historic room. Think of all the little yellow heads that have been doomed to death or worse as the cruel Queen Reagent or Joffery Baratheon had control of Westeros.

But on a lighter note, it’s impossible to not be in awe of YouTuber Tusserte’s meticulous creation. He planned, then executed, a tiny, cute version of TV’s most iconic place of ruling that is also consistently updated to reflect the changes within the show. For example, Tusserte’s custom-made stained glass windows (he built a computer program to figure out how to make them) were updated to reflect Cersei’s rule and the addition of the Lannister crests. He even remade some columns because of Joffrey’s silliness.

And look at this Iron Throne, made completely out of Lego swords and spears. Tusserte says it was a “pain to make” but it’s sturdy. That’s all you can hope for when making the most coveted seat in all the land.

For those who would like to know more, Tusserte went ahead and made a making of that everyone should watch, because we all need to appreciate his sore fingers.

Lego to produce Women of Nasa set

Children’s Lego boxes may already contain yellow Batman, Harry Potter and Star Wars characters, but soon they will also contain female Nasa pioneers.

The Danish toy company is making a new set of five figurines, based on real female scientists, engineers and astronauts.

The design, created by US science writer Maia Weinstock, won the Lego Ideas competition.

The characters will be available in late 2017 or early 2018.

The design was picked by the company after receiving 10,000 public votes, which made it eligible for consideration.

Ms Weinstock said: “The reaction has been overwhelming. Messages of congratulations and excitement at the prospect of this set actually being on store shelves have been pouring in.”

The five women portrayed are:

Scientist Katherine Johnson
Computer scientist Margaret Hamilton
Astronaut, physicist and educator Sally Ride
Astronomer Nancy Grace Roman
Astronaut and physician Mae Jemison

The so-called stem professions (science, technology, engineering and maths) are often male-dominated.

“I hope it sets a new example for both girls and boys,” said Ms Weinstock. “Girls, in that they can and should be engineers, scientists, and mathematicians, and boys, in that they internalise at an early age that these careers are for everyone, not only men.”

The Lego Ideas competition takes place twice a year, and one or two winners are selected for production.

Other contenders in the latest competition included Lego scenes from televisions shows The Addams Family and The Little House on the Prairie, a Lego Lamborghini and a Lego Large Hadron Collider.
