This is not the future my mother warned me about – Terminator Salvation minifigs

It’s been a very long time since going to see a movie inspired me to build a bunch of minifigs as soon as I got home. I saw Terminator Salvation on Saturday night, and had to build the heroes and their antagonists.

The human Resistance wouldn’t be the same without a couple of T-600 Terminators to fight.

LEGO Zombie Apocafest 2008The LEGO convention season is upon us, and BrickCon 2009 is just over four months away — time to start planning your trip and what you’re going to build. Likewise, it’s time to start planning collaborative displays.

With a successful Zombie Apocafest 2008 under our belts, we at The Brothers Brick are pleased to announce Zombie Apocafest 2009.

To celebrate this announcement and as an example of one of our new prize categories, I’ve turned 7639 Camper into a mobile zombie defense platform.

There are still many details to iron out, and we’re definitely open to suggestions. What kind of overall theme would you like to build toward? If you were there, what worked last year? What didn’t? Let us know in the comments.

This post contains 24 starfighters

And there’s only one name we can attibute that to: Nnenn. This collection of fighters shows what Nnenn has been building in the past month and a half. All the models are variations centered around a basic cockpit box design, shown on the bottom right corner of the picture.

Also check out this 360 view of one of his starfighters. I think that for the 68 edited photos used to make this, it’s worth your attention.
