Brickshelfer robbed has made a very cool terminator head. This nice montage really does it justice:

Some love him, others hate him. Either way, Gary Brolsma became an internet icon when he did his Numa Numa Dance in 2004. When browsing YouTube, I came across — of all things — a LEGO version of the dance. It’s not really brickfilming, but it’s still cool. Check it out!
Here’s the original film, for comparison:
Armothe recently posted a knight that is quite possibly the best custom fig I have seen yet. I give you Otto the Crusader!
The plethora of custom details is astounding, from the great helm to the barding, from the banner to the horse, virtually every detail is perfect.
As a finishing touch, Armothe has even given Otto a custom hairdo:
What an awesome fig!
Okay, I know I saw these on one of your blogs first, but I can’t find my “via” bookmarks, so pipe up with your “I blogged this last week!” comments. ;-)
Anway, Kwi-Chang is a blogger and builder whose amazing mecha I hadn’t highlighted here on the Brothers Brick, and with two great new/updated models, now’s as perfect a time as any.
Classic-Castle.com recently posted a great presentation by Ed Kohl. The depth of the information is incredible. I have never seen techniques like this before. If you have any interest is building in other scales at all, you should check this out.
Here’s the PDF file
Definitely worth a peek!
Masahiro Yanagi builds wonderfully realistic vehicles and buildings, in addition to whimsical creations inspired by space and science fiction.
Recent updates to his Brickshelf gallery include a patrol craft for the Japan Coast Guard called Yukigumo:
Stefan Garcia, or Sastrei to some, has worked on homeworld modifications for quite some time that allows you to play as classic lego ships! He has already finished a mod for number one in the series, but recently a preview version for number two was released. Download it now!
Bram Lambrecht gives us a Lamborghini Renazzo:
An interesting thing about this car is that it is not made for the traditional lego-figures (the minifigs), but for the larger technic figs. This larger scale has enabled Bram to create some very interesting functionality, such as the fantastic opening mechanism. Very nice touch.
First of, sorry everyone (readers, Andrew, Josh, Nathan, mother, santa) for not bringing you space the past week and a half or so. Real life is getting in the way, with one switch of apartment just done and the second one coming up in two weeks. Until I’m all settled down I might have to do big chunks of updates like this. Luckily Andrew just can’t keep away ;-)
The same Jerac who created the above linked Corviwurm also goes mech-killing with his Scorpicore. I just love the low profile and the ridiculously sized weapons. Jerac is a builder who has evolved a lot over the past few months, quickly profiling himself as a great builder.
Mike “Count Blockula” Crowley is a true original, as evidenced by his recent “Krab Trooper”:
I like the one above better, but I’m also highly amused by Mike’s version that uses Mr. Krabs’ head:
