Two of Nnenn‘s recent creations highlight the functional form in LEGO microspace. His most recent work, a cargo carrier called PX4-320b Ittadyma, is a carrier that displays colorful cargo containers, which are attached and detached with small helper crafts.
Another unique project highlights modular microscale ships. Click on the picture below to see all the combinations of ship parts, resulting in numerous variations.
I came across the works of Brickshelf user Devastator today, who has a taste for the bizzarre and macabre ranging from torturechambers, minifig executions and hangings, the gratuitous use of tentacles, and sheer randomness like mecha Pikachu. You may be making some connections at this point, but it is unlikely this builder and I cross-referenced each other’s works because his gallery predates mine while I’ve not known about him until today. So my question to ponder is: how does one’s mind get wired like so?
Check out Devastator’s most recent work called the Delirious Diorama. The beautifully crafted and accurate Chinese character means “bathroom.”
David Simmons‘ BuzzHawk is an sleek and stylish ship that went through quite an extensive process of evolution. I really like the engine thruster pods and the fact that they swivel to increase maneuverability.
Mike Psiaki (pronounced like “psyche”) updates his Republic Gunship with the new look of version 2. Besides the mastery craftsmanship, it’s interesting to note the balance between studded elements and tiled elements that results in the varied texture of the ship.
Jordan Schwartz‘s latest creation is the oil tower from the movie There will be Blood. The construction of the structure is fascinating when considering how all the angles came together nicely in the final product. Way to strike it rich Jordan!
Meanwhile, there’s a clip showing that the oil derrick is amazingly functional.
Eurobricks member Dunamis has posted detailed pictures and reviews of the new upcoming space sets, obtained from the LEGO store in Glendale, California. Click on each of the pictures below to see and read the review.
Dear readers. Today I’m allowing myself a little indulgence in nostalgia. I hope it might prove interesting to some of you.
Two and a half years ago I made a model of a locomotive. A Queensland RailClass 2800 to be precise. Yesterday I got the urge to redesign it from scratch and see what I could do. It’s interesting (to me anyway) seeing just how much I’ve improved in certain areas but also how many things remain almost unchanged. Maybe in another two and a half years I’ll have another shot at it.
Mark Stafford‘s invention of the theme called science fantasy looks like a combination of castle, steampunk, and science fiction. The result is a city called Sproket. The scene depicts the city plaza under invasion by pirates while guards and citizens respond in defense.
