In the middle of all the marketing and promotion surrounding Cars 2 , the second installment of the Cars franchise by Disney and Pixar, we sometimes need to step back a little and try to filter out all the information we’ve been getting.

The movie isn’t scheduled to hit theaters for another month - it opens June 24 - but it feels like we’ve been seeing promos, trailers, and what not for what feels like six months now. But if you’re one of those people that can’t get enough of all of it, we have a nice treat for you: the trailer of Cars 2 presented in LEGO.

Yep, you read that exactly. LEGO. The work was done by a group of people that apparently knew how to work those LEGO blocks to recreate the trailer of Cars 2 in all its entirety using only these blocks to build everything. It’s about as cool as any ’recreated’ trailer we’ve seen in a long time and actually makes us look forward to the movie even more, despite all the buzz we’ve seen and heard about it.

The amazing thing with Lego is that you can practically build anything with it and, yes, that even includes a Porsche with its own working suspension.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a sports car built with Legos – remember the Veyron with the working gearbox? – and we sure as hope it won’t be the last. Whether you’re a nine-year old kid getting his first exposure into building complicated Lego pieces or a 30-year old that appreciates a uniquely built Porsche made out of these blocks, seeing things like this never gets old.

From the detailed construction to the ingenuity of including a working suspension, there’s a whole lot to love about this Lego Porsche. Not only does it combine our present-day fascination with Porsches, but it also uses a toy that all of us have come to enjoy since our childhood days.

It may seem a little juvenile to some, but don’t pretend that you wouldn’t want having this on your desk to show off to your friends because we sure as heck would.

That Bugatti Veyron 16.4 fashioned out off LEGO blocks is back in the news, and to our surprise, it actually is more than just an eye-pleasing toy car.

As it turns out, the LEGO Veyron is actually a remote-controlled car that comes with a bunch of other nifty features that we didn’t know at first, including a braking system, a 7+R sequential gearbox, and a retractable and spoiler.

It’s hard to believe that all of these features come with the LEGO Veyron but once you see the video, you’re going to realize that these features are in fact part of the car’s overall package.

We’re here to tell you now that you won’t see a car made out LEGO quite like this Bugatti Veyron. Makes you wish you had one of these to play around with in your street, right?

Given that there are more than enough German manufacturers to choose from, it may seem odd for a German theme park to strike a deal with a Korean manufacturer to provide them with a total of 25 service vehicles, but that apparently is what happened when Legoland Germany and Hyundai finalized a two-year sponsorship deal.

As part of the deal, Legoland will use Hyundai vehicles ranging from the i10 city car to the new iX35 SUV for tourist servicing and shuttle rides in and around Legoland. In addition to that, Legoland’s toy cars, which are being used for basic driving school purposes for children ages 3 to 7, will be have Hyundai’s branding attached on them.

Sevilay Gokkaya, Head of Marketing & PR at the Hyundai Motor Germany GmbH, said: “LEGOLAND Germany Hyundai offers a fantastic experience to place the brand products in a family environment."

The partnership with Legoland is a fantastic opportunity for Hyundai to reach out to a market segment that it considers as one of its most sought-after markets: the family.

And with children becoming aware of Hyundai as a car brand, then you can expect a few wide-eyed kids begging their fathers to buy a real Hyundai, because they “look like Legos”.

It sounds far-fetched but it’s true. Just about everything in this world has been re-imagined with LEGO blocks. From national monuments to some of the world’s most exotic supercars, there seems to be no shortage of creative minds in this world that are capable of using LEGO as a tool in releasing their inner artist.

Speaking of supercars being built using LEGO blocks, these two Bugatti Veyron s are just about as close as anybody can get in creating a LEGO-inspired Veyron. The whole detail, from the car’s hood to the rear engine, is spectacularly precise and intricately constructed.

These two models gives new meaning to the term ‘building blocks’, proving that when it comes to LEGO, you can build just about anything you want.

Playing racing games on your iPhone can be a tedious experience, especially when you have to tilt and twist your iPhone in all sorts of directions. This rather ingenious fellow was able to drive around the problem by building an iPhone holder using Lego blocks. Even better than that, he also added a steering wheel and gear to his contraption so that he only needs to move the wheel – just like real driving – to play his favorite racing games on the iPhone.

It’s a pretty cool thing to build with Lego blocks and it would have been even more amazing if he found a way to keep his iPhone from screen-saving from time to time.

The LEGO BMW X1 has now been completed, and while there’s a stark difference from a real X1 – for starters, it doesn’t move – it does look remarkably similar to the real one.

Over 800 children between ages 5 to 13 years old – with the help of some BMW staff – worked on the project over the course of four days. It’s a remarkable feat for these young ones, a lot of whom worked tirelessly to create this 165,000 LEGO blocks masterpiece.

We especially like the BMW badge nestled on the front of the X1, which adds a touch of realism to the finished product. Good work kiddos!
