Badass Bricks: Thirty-Five Weapons of Mass Construction
By  Jake Mackay

LEGO is fun. So are toy weapons. The only thing more fun is LEGO toy weapons! A compilation of badass brick weapons—some that actually even work—this book is designed for the adult brick enthusiast. Each project is original (i.e., not from a LEGO kit) and is accompanied by how-to schematics and full-color original photographs of the finished object. Dangerous and exciting projects include:

• Tomahawk
• Broadsword
• Claymore (two-handed sword)
• Ninja throwing star
• M1911 pistol
• Siege tower
• Gatling gun
• MK2 grenade
• Scythed chariot
• Paris gun
• Flamethrower
• And many more!

Hobbyists love to make weapons, and this book goes far beyond the kits that are available to showcase forty projects for amazing weapons. The projects range from medieval to modern, from small hand grenades to an actual working guillotine to an assault amphibious vehicle. Badass Bricks will keep adults occupied for hours and is the perfect book for the adult brick enthusiast, weapons hobbyist, or all-around badass!
