Everyone who has ever played with LEGOs knows the frustration of missing pieces, blocks not connecting the way you want them to or design being too complicated for you LEGO sets. However, some adults are just too good at breaking the LEGO building games rules. Adult fans of LEGO or AFOL, are people who haven't let their enthusiasm for the building blocks game die. While these enthusiasts respect the activity, some have gone off-map to create - "illegal LEGO building techniques," and they are awesome.

According to The Brothers Brick, a LEGO website for adult builders and fans of LEGO, these techniques are: "LEGO bricks building techniques that break the “rules” for connections between LEGO elements followed by official LEGO set designers — particularly connections that stress the LEGO elements. (e.g., inserting a plate upright between the studs on a brick.)" Scroll down below to check out some of these outlaw moves with bricks and LEGO figurines that people have shared online. And don't forget to upvote your favs!

I could use this because I really don't know where you could actually find a double-sided lego brick.

Revolutionary! Except that it was discovered by accident when pieces got wedged together back in the 1650s.

There's a great Netflix show called "The Toys That Made US" and there is an episode about Lego. If you haven't seen it, you should check it out, it's awesome!

It seems LEGO used this technique back in 1985 (see the highlighted images). Lego-6368_...117559.jpg Lego-6368_1-5e1b24a117559.jpg

I had a police station model as a kid, back when the mini figures had no faces or arms, and the handles on the motorbikes used this technique.

When was this??? I had Legos as a kid in the early 70s and all of my guys had faces and arms. I think you had some kinda generic junk....
