I suspect the cigarette lighter needs fixing, but it’ll do:
“Reverend” Brendan Powell Smith may be best known for The Brick Testament, but he does build other things. Here’s his “WWE Superstars in LEGO”:
(Still catching up — this one’s from before the recent “Brickshelf crisis.”)
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.
Great submission, Jamie Neufeld! (Can you tell I’m catching up?)
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new ship in the 3vil faction. The latest is from Dillon:
The skull — a requisite part of any 3vil ship — is particularly well-executed, with a great cannon sticking out of the right eye.
Nathan Proudlove has been playing World of WarCraft, as evidenced by his Tauren warrior.
Speaking of cool videos, Peter Edwards has some really interesting creations on his Web site, including many that are motorized in some way.
Here’s Peter’s very fast LEGO slot cars are built around AFX motors:
My favorite, though, is the video of an ingenious set of “dodgem” cars:
Be sure to check out Peter’s Web site for lots more, including higher-resolution versions of these and other great videos.
Yesterday was the second birthday of this blog, but I was too busy reading the adventures of a certain young wizard to post anything. ;-)
The big changes to this blog since last year:
- We moved from Blogger to our own domain here at Brothers-Brick.com.
- In addition to Josh, we’ve added Nathan and Linus, and then Tim to the team.
- We’ve written 800 new posts (1300 total).
Here are some possibly interesting statistics about all of you, our faithful readers:
- Between August 2006 and July 2007, we’ve quadrupled our daily readership, from about 250 visitors a day to over 1,000.
- Since we launched Brothers-Brick.com in December 2006, you’ve posted 998 comments (and we’ve blocked 11,350 spam comments).
- Visitors have viewed Brothers-Brick.com from 129 countries and regions, representing all the continents except Antarctica.
- More than 140 unique blogs have sent 310 links our way.
- The top sites that send us readers are Google, the old blog, StumbleUpon, Kotaku, Classic-Castle.com, LUGNET, and Destructoid.
- Other than the blog’s name, our top keywords are “new 2007 LEGO castle set”, “LEGO blog”, “BrickArms LEGO creation”, and “LEGO 10190“.
- 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.
Who says the barren landscape of the world after some sort of cataclysmic event won’t be full of interesting characters? Certainly not Legohaulic:
