LEGOs inspire creativity in people of all ages, as evidenced by the fascinating creations on display at Brickworld 2010, which was held June 17-20, 2010 in Wheeling, IL. The event featured contests, games, shopping, building opportunities, and LEGO masterpieces.
The TechRepublic photo gallery of Brickworld 2010 features LEGO creations of a Terminator, Star Wars characters, a chess game, the Mona Lisa, spacecrafts, a drive-in (I think Spaceballs is the advertised movie), video game characters, milk and cookies, and much more.
You might also want to check out this video of a LEGO designer describing some of what went into working on the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector's Imperial Shuttle model.
