This steampunk hovercraft by Chase Lewis (Vid) may appear too small to carry any eels, but that won’t stop me from making a ridiculous Monty Python reference.
I suspect I will never get tired of referencing that sketch when I post a LEGO hovercraft, so y’all just better get used to it. Ha!
Even though LEGO has released ship hulls in other colors, it’s unusual to see fan-made LEGO sailing ships that aren’t brown. Haung (rack911) combines red hulls with light gray to create a battleship evocative of warships of the early 20th century.
The round cannon doors, LEGO Castle minifigs, and the tall statue ahead of the ship also lend an air of fantasy to the scene. See more photos on MOCpages and Brickshelf.
Dirk VH (dm_meister) has created a large-scale sculpture of Strong Bad from Homestar Runner.
Dirk even added details like the lacing on the back of Strong Bad’s luchador mask, along with photos of the internal structure that keeps LEGO Strong Bad…strong.
See more photos of Strong Bad in Dirk’s photostream on Flickr.
Chis Wunz built this incredible rose as a present for his wife, Erin.
Way to go, Chris, now Rachel wants to know why I haven’t built one for her…thanks a lot. ;)
Dano has built a cute little island fortress. Nice clean lines and just the right amount of detail. I’m liking it, Dano!
Athos just posted pictures of his chateau, and it’s rather striking. The contrast of the walls really jumped out at me. You also have to check out the detailed interior.
Chris M (powerpig) apparently has a troupe of semi-tame chipmunks living in his back yard. In fact, they’re so tame that they’ll pose for photos with his toys.
I’d just been paying attention to Chris’ LEGO photography until now, but his critter pictures are amazing too!
Following the official announcement of the rumored LEGO Rock Band, Darren Gladstone over at PC World has written a hilarious list of the 9 LEGO Games You’ll Never See.

Read Darren’s “pitch” for each game on PCWorld.com.
If you’d asked me six months ago, I couldn’t have imagined a LEGO Rock Band. With that in mind, I’m rooting for LEGO StarCraft.
Cheyne Potter (AfroEngineer) posted this cute little plane based on concept art in the Classic-Space.com concept art gallery.
The minifig has hair from one of the upcoming Town sets, so it looks like those sets should be more widely available soon!
While we’re at it, check out Cheyne’s ingenious use of blue chairs as water in this scene:
In more contest news, Reasonably Clever and TwinLUG are hosting the Bad Day for Micropolis contest.
As this gorgeous school (with adorably itty-bitty school buses) built by judge Max Braun illustrates, the TwinLUG Micro City Standard is fairly simple — to fit into collaborative displays — while still enabling individual builders to do some pretty cool things.
There are four categories in the contest, and you can win a cartload of prizes. The contest ends at 2:22 AM EST on May 4, 2009, so get building!
