Vitus “Tony” Barth says that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time inspired his latest LEGO creation. Regardless of its inspiration, Vitus’ mirroring of light and dark introduces a bit of chiaroscuro to his LEGO world.
The main LEGO Shop page on LEGO.com hasn’t been updated yet, but the new Indiana Jones sets are now available from the LEGO Shop online.
You can get all four sets in the Indiana Jones™ Classic Adventures Collection. In fact, if you buy them from that link, you’ll be helping us pay the bills. ;-)
And now for a celebrity endorsement.
(Josie the dachshund is the celebrity, not me. She’s in a book.)
Look familiar? It’s a microscale version of Nannan’s Armageddon tank! Both Nannan and I were fooled when we saw this come up in our contacts’ photostreams, so kudos to Adrian Drake for such an excellent itty bitty Armageddon!
Check out several more “Micro Fanboy Creations” in the full photoset on Flickr.
Merry Christmas to everyone from me! I present you something less joyful for those who want to deflate some overinflated holiday cheer. Tired of hearing wishes for peace on Earth? I bring you Armageddon!
This is a motorized black fantasy tank. In addition to movement, it also features a rotating infantry grinder and a self-firing weapons system. Please read the gruesome backstory on MOCpages and enjoy the youtube video.
My lovely wife apparently went out at the last minute and found both 7620 Indiana Jones Motorcycle Chase and 7621 Indiana Jones and the Lost Tomb.
Naturally, I spent Christmas morning savoring the build:
Oh, and I can’t wait to play LEGO Indiana Jones next summer on my new Wii:
I hope everyone got what they wanted for Christmas — I sure did! :-D
All around the Web, LEGO fans are wishing each other a very merry Christmas.

And from all of us here at The Brothers Brick, may all your gifts rattle in that very special way! ;-)
Kotaro Ono’s blog How Many Studs to LEGOLAND? is one of my favorite LEGO blogs, where I can keep up with everything that’s happening in the Japanese LEGO fan community.
But Kotaro, who also goes by Earl_0 online and はくしゃく (“Hakushyaku”) in Japanese, is also a really great builder. I featured his retro space creations way back in March 2006.
His latest retro space creation takes advantage of the two-piece goldfish bowl helmet from the Sandy Cheeks minifig in one of the new SpongeBob SquarePants sets.
Matt Armstrong (aka monsterbrick) created a realistically looking lego skull by gluing lego pieces over a non-lego skull model. Despite the unconventional method used, the finished product still looks nice.
