The steampunk bug has taken a huge bite out of Lukas. That’s a good thing.
Here’s his latest, a “steam chimney”:
Now with a bonus floating rock!
But wait, there’s more! Flappters inspired by Miyazaki’s Laputa:
The Seattle Weekly reports that families hoping to leave their kids in the “LEGO pit” at Bumbershoot (our annual arts festival) while they run off to see Of Montreal or Rogue Wave will be disappointed this year. Just so ya know.
Advance Wars is by far my favorite Game Boy Advance game, Advance Wars 2 is just as good, and Battalian Wars for Nintendo GameCube totally rocked. As if the game’s units weren’t tiny enough, Soren has successfully distilled them down to mini-scale:

In addition to lots of great detail on the outer wall, Chad has included wooden structures and a scene full of minifigs on the inside:
