My friend Paul sent me a link to a Kotaku post with a very cool video — a LEGO mod for Unreal Tournament 3. I love how everything clatters apart when it blows up. My only disappointment is that the weapons themselves aren’t “brick-built.”
Carter Baldwin contructs a superbad truck belonging to a band of survivors in a zombie post-apoc world. There’s plenty of guns to fend off unwanted company and the tracks will plow right over their already dead bodies. Way to rock through the apocalypse Carter!
The thing I like so much about Rocko’s LEGO creations is all the whimsical touches. His latest castle creation pits the new Crown Knights against the skeleton horde, with air support from a very hungry dragon.
In addition to the whimsy, we have several interesting building techniques; check out those boats and barrels that aren’t just sitting on the surface of the water.

New information on the upcoming LEGO MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) game, LEGO Universe, has truly been scarce. Some of the only information has been in early concept art doled out to newsletter subscribers:
But Blog | Life from Wired.com has a handful of new details on the game.
Based on the way the game is being marketed, I’m personally not entirely convinced the game will have the broad, multigenerational appeal that one might hope for (read: they don’t seem to be marketing to adults).
Still, I’m intrigued by the organic feeling of the backgrounds in the concept art released so far.
Head on over to Blog | Life to read the feature and see bigger versions of the new concept art (above).
You know how it goes. You build something for a contest, but you don’t get around to finishing it on time or taking pictures. Well, in the case of Zach Clapsadle‘s Jedi Steamfighter, the lateness doesn’t detract from the awesomeness.
Zach says he wanted to create a complete hyperdrive ring. Yowza! Let’s hope he comes back to this project and does that.
Matt Hamann has been steadily improving his rolling stock (trains and carriages) and this new Burlington Northern GP9 is a true masterpiece. The placement of details, subtle shape differences and clever tricks (check out the hands on the handrail) combine to make for a beautiful engine. Excellent work.
DasNewten tries his hand at a style reminiscent of nnenn‘s microscale ships. And I say he succeeded rather nicely. Just one picture doesn’t do this little beauty justice, so click the photo above to check out more on Flickr.
Sweet unholy hell. When MisterZumbi does something for the first time, he does it with a bang — like a backfiring hotrod.
For someone who’s never built anything larger than minifig-scale, this is quite the first. The level of detail in MisterZumbi’s “Road Zombie” is unbelievable. Click the pic to check out the engine, the interior, and other tidbits of heavy metal goodness.
