Working my way further back through Moritz N‘s photostream, I encountered this great vignette highlighting the importance of being tolerant:
Although there are still incurable boneheads in both the dwarf and the troll society, Gnork and Shroeder finally summon up the courage to come out of secrecy.
Living their relationship freely they join the Cristopher Street Day parade to demontrate for tolerance and equal opportunities.
Go Gnork and Shroeder, go!
If you’re unfamiliar with Alex Eylar‘s works, take a look at his gallery and you’ll soon conclude that his pictures are something else, especially when it comes to lighting. Luckily, Alex has written a nice summary and gave a good example of the role of lighting in transforming an otherwise decent creation into a masterpiece. Click on the picture below to read more.
Aaron Andrews has been working on a fun series of pirate creations, populated by a hapless band of buccaneers. In his latest, he sends them down a lava tube. I don’t know if they’re going to make it out of this one alive!
Alex Eylar presents “A Brief History of Time Machines,” showing some interesting depictions of these fictional marvels throughout the ages. For example, check out this time machine in working order from the early twentieth century. Click on the photo to see more from his gallery!
Goopy the Troll may not be smart, but he gets the job done and in a hurry. He and his team of down-on-their-luck horses are the fastest in the business. Hence his title of “King of the Gong Farmers“! Next time your castle’s cesspit needs cleaning, call Goopy. He would appreciate the business.
I’ve jumped on the bandwagon, as we prepare for the Zombie ApocaFest at BrickCon in October. While a sniper and his spotter look for more “targets”, Ricky and Leslie make a break for the safety of the second floor! Will they make it or will the undead feast? You decide!

Speaking of references to British popular culture that I’m not familiar with, Ronald Vallenduuk (Duq) has posted a great entry for the LUGNuts Sympathy for the underdog challenge inspired by the BBC comedy Only Fools and Horses.
Here’s Del Boy and Rodney of Trotters Independent Traders (in their “Heroes and Villains” Christmas special outfits):
The source of inspiration may not be a particularly stylish vehicle, but Rondald’s LEGO rendition of the three-wheeled Reliant Regal Supervan is very cool indeed.
I’ve been keeping an eye on Simon‘s LEGO Boba Fett costume project for a while (and yet somehow missed his great LEGO Star Wars minifigs along the way), so I was very pleased to see the completed armor.
This may be the coolest homage ever to the beloved bounty hunter with only
two four lines in Empire Strikes Back:
That’s right, Simon has built a complete Boba Fett costume entirely from LEGO (except the jump suit and cape, of course). The outfit includes a helmet, jet pack, chest plate, and blaster. Amazing stuff!
Most builders use the pre-molded ship pieces when building their galleons, schooners, and clippers.
Never one to take the easy way out, Aaron Andrews has used bricks and tiles to build the hull of his pirate ship, The Black Meg:
