I left a comment on one of Tim Zarki‘s pictures saying that I can’t blog everything he builds. Well, it’s true — though unfortunate, because all of his recent creations have been fantastic, including this post-apocalyptic tank/tractor.
Other than the blog’s name, our top keywords are “new 2007 LEGO castle set”, “LEGO blog”, “BrickArms LEGO creation”, and “LEGO 10190“.
Finally, taking my queue from Technorati founder David Sifry‘s “State of the Blogosphere” posts, here’s a quick summary of how things have changed in the LEGO blog world since last year:
2005-2006 saw an explosion of new LEGO blogs. Most of those blogs are no longer posting regularly.
Nearly all LEGO blogs I was aware of in 2006 were in either English or Japanese. Today, the LEGO blogosphere hums with many other languages, including German, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish.
The sudden demise and unexpected resurrection of Brickshelf has spawned several new LEGO picture sites, as well as mass migrations to existing sites like MOCpages, Maj, and Flickr. What effect this will have on LEGO blogs and the broader LEGO community remains to be seen.
Seach for “Optimus Prime” on just about any LEGO site and you’ll get about 1.6 million hits. Of course, most don’t actually transform, and if they do, it’s much easier to build a transforming Optimus Prime at a fairly large scale. astronut1 has created a transforming Optimus Prime in the 4-wide scale of classic Town sets:
I won’t spoil the surprise, so be sure to check out all of astronut1’s Optimus Prime photos.
