My latest musical minifig is the late, great Elvis Presley in Jailhouse Rock:
Back on the old blog, I posted a couple times about a series of TV episodes in Japan called “LEGO King Championship.” You can read more about the show here, and see a YouTube video here. Unfortunately, the images I linked to in my original post quickly expired, and the YouTube footage doesn’t do justice to the creations.
After a very long wait (well, I’ve been waiting), Sachiko Akinaga has uploaded a great set of pictures that show off the “Earth Park” that won her the title of LEGO Champion:

Paolo Manzi presents a beautiful photograph collage titled “Rainy Afternoon in the Park”:
Mike Crowley (aka “Count Blockula”) presents the ultimate Super Mario Bros. boss, Bowser:
I can’t count the number of Shinto shrines I visited growing up in Japan. I visited plenty of shrines in big cities like Tokyo and Kyoto, but my favorites were always the small shrines tucked into a grove deep in a forest or perched atop a tall hill. No matter what one’s religious alignment, I don’t think it’s possible not to feel the pervading sense of peace and holiness in these beautiful, tranquil places.
Brickshelfer Paul Donis evokes a mountainous path leading to a shrine with his “Torii gate”:
lego2000/m20xr has designed a hardsuit reminiscent of Maschinen Krieger, and it’s really rather cool. Here it is with an “optional 75 mm chain gun”:
LEGO Ambassador, Classic-Castler and LEGO builder extrodonaire Nelson Yrizarry has done it again and created his own new subtheme: CheeseBots. Wallow in it’s cheesy goodness, and check out the intergration of yellow minifig accessories, including mugs, lifes vests, jackhammer, goblets and more. His constuction techniques aren’t bad either. ;)
Well, at the very least Lukas has a rather formidable assassin to send after you:
The claws are very cool, and seem to be constructed of Viking horns attached to those ever-useful binoculars. Excellent.
Speaking of builders on a roll, minifig is at it again as well. Here’s Jack Bauer from the TV show “24″:
Nice effect with the focus. We’re four hours into Season 6 now, and the world is a very different place from the one Jack left behind at the end of last season. Wow.
I love it when Martin Jaspers gets on a roll. Here’s another update to his castle characters, a macabre crew of dark skeletons:
(As always, Martin only uses real, unmodified LEGO parts — even if they’re in unusual colors.)
