L is for...

Almost half-way through the brick encyclopedia, today brings us to "L" -- the very beginning of LEGO. As such, here are the important "L" words for you to know in relation to the plastic brick.

L is for Lamborghini. This is a tiny feat of engineering -- a 1 to 17 scale model of the Lamborghini Gallardo. It will look perfect in the MOC of Rodeo Drive that you're working on.

L is for Landspeeder. The hovering ship piloted by Luke Skywalker in the beginning of Star Wars -- the LEGO version has a hidden lightsaber compartment and undeniable fanboy charm.

L is for Lando Calrissian. The minifigure alter ego of Billy Dee Williams -- it sports one of the finest mustaches in all the LEGO Universe.

L is for LEGOLAND. Close in spelling, but very different than LEGO Lando -- there are currently four LEGO-inspired theme parks in Denmark, England, Germany, and the United States. If you have kids, head here on vacation. Even if you don't, head here on vacation.

L is for Lava Monster. The villains in the new Power Miners sets. The Lava Monsters hate rain and are the same devious creatures that caused you to have to jump from couch to couch in an effort to avoid the "lava" in your living room.
