“Create The Impossible” by LEGO

It seems LEGO finally recognized impossible object illusions as another great (optical illusion) way to promote their product. I’d like to think their inspiration came of this website – specially Escher Style category, but it’s much more likely they stumbled upon some of Andrew Lipson’s work, instead. I liked LEGO very much back being a kid, and have spent hours creating all sorts of incredible structures. I’m sorry it never occurred to me how fun would it be creating something like this. If you like these impossible creations, you’ll surely enjoy Lego Venice and these. Have to go now. Cya tomorrow!

    1. This “first comment” game is getting ridiculous!
      Will you all please concentrate on the illusion more than concentrating on being first?!

  1. FIRST COMMENT??? WELL THIS IS MY FIRST TIME COMMENTING ON THIS WEBSITE. I DONT REALLY GET THE SECOND ONE BUT I WANTED TO SAY THAT MY BROTHER IS LIKE 20 AND HE STILL PLAYS WITH LEGOS! LOL I LOOOVE UR WEBSITE AND CHECK IT EVERYDAY SO KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. ALSO, HOW DO WE SEND EMAILS TO YOU???

  2. Yes Rampante – that’s the point – they are based on Escher’s work – it’s funny because it’s Lego doing its verion of very famous illusions and art work. Fantastic stuff lego people, I don’t care if it’s Photoshopped or real – either way it’s creative and art!!

  3. I can’t believe you people still go one with the 1st! thing. No, you’re not first as the first few comments are delayed and displayed at the same time, and even if you were no one gives a damn. Grow up.
    Nice Lego kits, it’s actually hard to tell which parts are photoshopped.

  4. Course they’re not original. They’re Lego representations of MC Escher work. The first one is waterfall. Third is Relativity. Not sure what second one is tho..

    Also, ya, they can’t actually be built. Just pay attention to the zig-zag slide and the poles in the second one.
    Also the direction of the stairs in the 3rd one.

  5. It’s very funny to see how many “first comment” there are… It’s always a competition for you

    However, I love LEGOs. They are amazing. The imagea are obviously photoshopped (or made in a shape that from one point of view appear as we see), because “impossible object illusions” are… well… impossible to create in real life, but they are very nice.

    I love LEGO videogames too…

  6. Very well done! I really like lego. My most favorite toy as a kid and I stil like it, but I never play with it anymore though.

    Comment from bufar about the shapes above the waterfall being false. I don’t think so. I recognise the rooftiles-legopieces I still have in my collection. With special legopieces you can make a cubelike shape with them.

    The second photo I don’t get either. Anyone out there whome can explane it to me?

    Thanks!

  7. PS.

    Ooohhh… I just got the second photo. The building seems to build stretching to the right and at the sametime to the back. the rightside is be├»ng emphasised by the ladder and the backside is being emphasised by the black legoman with helmed.

    Perhaps my English is not so clear, but it is not my native language. I’m dutch.

  8. simple realy, if u moved the camera angle slightly u could see how it was done, although it was still pretty cool, actualy i would like to see them from a diferent angle.

    p.s. this is my first comment,
    p.p.s love the site

  9. The second picture that a few people say they don’t ‘get’ is an interpretation of one of Eschers finest plays on perspective and is titled ‘Belvadere’ (the 2nd story of the building has its long side running left to right but the 1st floor runs front to back…)
    The illusion is clearer in Eschers drawing but still fantastic to see in Lego

  10. Anonymous, nobody cares what you “know”, especially when you can’t spell “offense” right.

    … yeah.

  11. @TheTruth: do your research before you tell someone he’s wrong. type “define: offence” in google and voila! English != (is not equal to) American, there are a lot of words that are spelt differently.

    …yup.

  12. awsome, i figured out that its all about the angle on these, at the angle they took the picture it looks like it, at least i think

  13. WOW, I’m a big fan of legos.
    I seen an illusion like this a few months ago. The legso don’t really connect
