Of late, most of my posts have been about Lego, the Droid phone and the Android operating system, so I thought I’d combine and them and create the Android logo / mascot out of Lego, in full 3D. The size of the Android was dictated by the dome on the top half of the Android. […]

Now you too can battle Mother Brain in Samus’ eternal battle against the metroids.
