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.

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.
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:
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!
Many of you out there first became an adult fan of LEGO when you bought LEGO for your kids (while some of us just never stopped).
To enter, just add a photo of you and your kids building together to the GeekDad photo pool on Flickr. The contest ends next Thursday, April 30.
There’s LEGO to be won, of course, but the winning family also gets their picture featured on an upcoming LEGO set. In LEGO fandom, that’s pretty close to immortality.
If you think you have what it takes to contribute to one of these blogs, head on over to Bruce’s call for co-bloggers to find out more.
A LEGO military model you probably can’t buy is this dark green beauty by Aleksander Stein.
The helicopter can seat ten minifigs (2 crew, 8 troops) and has internal lighting. I find the unique shape of the blades particularly noteworthy.
The most frequent question we get from LEGO builders is How do I get blogged? But for all of you out there who read The Brothers Brick to see what we builders do, one of your most common questions is “Where can I buy that?” The answer is usually “You can’t.”
Daniel Siskind of BrickMania was one of the first LEGO fans to create and sell custom LEGO sets of his own design, way back in 1999 or 2000. After a five-year hiatus, Dan recently began producing new custom kits.
The Panzer IV Ausf. G. tank kit from World War II comes in Afrikakorps tan, with a unique BrickArms prototype MG42 machine gun.
Dan’s Panzer tank kit includes 690 pieces and sells for $99.95 with instructions on CD.
Apparently, StarWars.com is getting all the exclusive details about the upcoming 2009 LEGO Star Wars sets. I didn’t notice when I blogged 7754 Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser, but the site also has articles about 7753 Pirate Tank and 7778 Midi-scale Millenium Falcon.
From the Clone Wars animated TV series, 7753 Pirate Tank could be at home in the 2009 LEGO Space Police theme.
The pirate figs (Hondo Ohnaka and Turk Falso, apparently) look unlike any other LEGO Star Wars minifigs I’ve ever seen.
Brickshelf user B-idea crafts an artistic diorama depicting the forced perspective sinking of a pirate ship. The foreground features the dynamic action of the sinking ship in minifig scale while the background floats a micro-scale rendition of an imperial flagship.
