Destroyer of civilizations

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.

So, what’d you get for Christmas?

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

Retro Spaceman by Kotaro Ono

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.
