Check out this amazing Predator bust by misterzumbi. Great use of those tentacles and nice work on the base as well.
The worldwide response to the 50th birthday of the LEGO brick today has been amazing.
- Neatorama has a list of the 10 Neatest LEGO Facts and Links.
- LEGO Ambassador Peter Reid and fiancee Yvonne Doyle showed off their LEGO room on Sky TV.
- Another LEGO Ambassador, Tânia Baixinho, posted another cool video.
Finally, LEGO Certified Professional Sean Kenney made a cake:
Joel wonders what to do with all that LEGO now that the Falcon is done. I vote for more ships of his own design. You’ve got some skills, dude!
Thanks for the tip, Xeni!
EDIT: I didn’t read the whole post earlier, but Joel also has a great list of his nine favorite LEGO sets. From 497 Galaxy Explorer to 7036 Dwarves’ Mine, it’s a great list indeed.
Today (Monday, January 28) is the 50th birthday of the LEGO brick as we know it today.
You’ve come a long way, our favorite little plastic brick! Happy birthday.
Each of us has our obsessions, and it should be fairly clear from my posts over this past year that one of mine is 7036 Dwarves’ Mine (sadly, currently sold out from The LEGO Shop; UPDATE: 7036 Dwarves’ Mine is back!)
As a sucker for anything related to this wonderful set, I couldn’t pass up Alex Eylar‘s take on it:
That’s Alex’s favorite shot, and mine as well. Click the picture for the full gallery on MOCPages.
Gorazd Vahen (aka Kaitimar) enters the Steam-Wars fray with a huffing, puffing AT-ST.
LAML Radio has produced several episodes recently. James has been such a prolific host that I’ve not managed to keep up with the headlines! Here is the latest episode, featuring Aaron (Darkspawn) and me for the first time. We had an interesting discussion about the latest LEGO news and our observations and opinions regarding sharing MOCs online. Click here for this episode of the podcast.
Justin Vaughn (aka Mainman), answered the call of my Black Fantasy contest and created a most horrific biomechanical creature, called the Wail of Echoes Eternal. Way to set the bar high Justin; this is top quality work. Meanwhile I’ll be eagerly looking forward to what other players will step up with.
