I’ve seen quite a few humorous uses of the ostrich head, but this robo-bird by Stuart Delahay is taking things to the next level. The backstory on MOCpages is quite hilarious as well, you should check it out.
Bartosz Kacprzyk (the oneman) creates his version of the fire truck from Fahrenheit 451. I love the fitting retro-futuristic style of this vehicle and the plow, which I think makes the creation stand out. The warm lighting also adds to the presentation; we don’t need to see a pile of burning books to know that things are about to heat up.
Immediately after the start of the Normandy invasion on D-Day, Allied forces began a battle for the strategic port city of Cherbourg that lasted more than three weeks. My diorama highlights the aftermath of the battle, when townspeople begin emerging from the rubble, while Free French partisans hoist the Tricolour above their safe house.
The diorama features an updated version of my M4 Sherman tank:
Better late than never. Nate Brill (Shuppiluliumas) and PennLUG debuted this wonderful container ship and port at BrickFair2010. RAILBRICKS have already written at great length about it so I’ll spare the details here but I will add that I’m a huge fan of the old rundown port next to the much more modern one. Lovely!
Phil Memmer built an UCS-style model of the probe droid, making good use of the quarter saucer pieces. The detailed mechanical arms are simply fascinating to look at.
I don’t pretend to be able to read or pronounce the name of this new mecha by Dane Erland (Lord Dane). That doesn’t stop me from knowing that I like the CEC Podróżujący – czworonóg, though.
There are a lot of excellent details on this creation, starting with the well sculpted small turret on top. I also think that the gears and other bits at the joints of the legs really help give them a functional look. The use of minifig vests to vary the thickness of the legs is also a nice touch, especially using an old castle logo to add insignia to the creation.

In case you’re wondering, the stubby alien in the last frame is not a Lego minifig.
Peter Blackert (lego911) builds fantastic vehicles out of brick. This is simply a fact. His latest creation brings us back to the Roarin’ 20s with a brilliantly executed Ford Model A (1927) Deluxe Coupe ‘Grandfather’ design. More photos, including his mini-land scale Grandma and Grandpa, are found in his USA Holiday 2010 set.
While we wait patiently for How to Train your Dragon to come out on DVD/Blu Ray, Taylor Baggs (Unitronus) helps us out by teaching us to identify the various species of dragons in and around.
The Gronckle, seen below, is a fairly small, portly dragon that prefers masticated rocks as projectiles.
