LEGO launches Rebrickable! Ah, to Build Again…

Rebrickable

One of LEGO’s lasting appeal is the ability to tear apart bricks from various sets to build something new, or to modify a LEGO Tie-Fighter to look like one of those Clone Wars prototypes or a Next Gen fighter from Dark Empire. Well, maybe. Brick builders are able to do anything they want.

But if they are stuck, there is a new website, Rebrickable, that will tell owners of pre-existing sets what they can do next with their LEGO tank or helicopter. There is a total of 9511 sets in this database and 569 of them are custom My Own Creations that can be combined in numerous ways that can be sure to ignite new imaginations. Up to six different kits can be entered into this search engine to tell users what can be made of those LEGO parts. When the database returns an answer, it will tell the person just what can be made, how many parts are needed and what’s missing to complete it.

Of the sets, most of the kits are from the regular line of LEGO products along with franchise movie tie-in products. To name a few, many Star Wars kits are mentioned alongside Technic, Prince of Persia, Harry Potter. And if builders are willing to blow their Eiffel Tower or Taj Mahal apart, more power to them! At least this time, there will be no secret service agents tailing after them since it’s just the toy being torn apart.
