Izzo’s latest series of powered suits incorporates Bionicle masks:
More cheesebots from the ever-resourceful Nelson Yrizarry! Delicious!
And what cheese(bot) plate would be complete without Quackers?
Don’t miss the rest of Nelson’s yellow robots in his gallery on Brickshelf.
Several years ago, Jake McKee, the former “community guy” for The LEGO Company, created the Building Instructions Portal (currently unavailable).
Due to real-life priorities, Jake announced over the weekend on LUGNET that he’s looking for someone to whom he can hand over the reigns of the site.
Read all about it on LUGNET, but in particular Jake is looking for someone familar with Adobe ColdFusion. (I miss Allaire…)
EDIT: Jake clarifies:

This is what you get when these two work together:
I’ve had my eye on Jas Nagra’s Flickr photostream ever since I noticed the mecha he’s been working on. In the meantime, here are some great minifigs:
Somewhat larger than his Nano Zeon Mobile Suits, Chuck Citrin has built a big blue Gouf (info):
Nelson Yrizarry has done it again. Tremble in fear and awe at his Planet of the Exo-Apes vignette. Check out those awesome Exo-Apes made out of Exoforce bots. He’s also made a exo-scorpian out of the bot parts.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than ten years since eager computer gamers first began controlling the increasingly curvaceous (hurray for higher polygon counts!) Lara Croft in Tomb Raider games.
As always, Lara takes on a Tyrannosaurus Rex, utilizing her run & gun technique:
Characters from the Xbox 360 game Gears of War:
From left to right, Pvt. Damon Baird, Pvt. Augustus Cole, Sgt. Marcus Fenix, and Pvt. Dominic Santiago.
(I’m not as happy with these four as I am with the FFIII characters or Lara Croft, but I was dying to use my new BrickArms weapons again. :D)
