Our occassional technic reviewer Peer Kreuger (mahjqa) doesn’t just know about technic, he’s a dab hand at building it. Drawing inspiration from the Metal Slug computer games and his own omniwheels he’s created the crazy remote controlled Metal Grudge. And to really take it to the next level he’s used camera cars to get action shots like the one above. Much more fun than a computer game.
With LEGO Harry Potter sets making a return this year, it’s nice to see people building various Harry Potter creations again.
Matn has posted a gorgeous Hogsmeade Station that would look just as great in a regular Town/Train layout:
Not content to build something only for the camera (as many of us do — who among us hasn’t “cheated” by leaving off parts on the far side?), Matn built a complete platform and pedestrian overpass:
With lovely half-timber construction, texturing on the chimney, and excellent stonework on the first-floor corners, this creation is truly magical.
With our own piece of futuristic architecture left over from the 1962 World’s Fair spiking the Seattle skyline, I’m always interested to learn about other examples of strange buildings that reflects the failed hopes of decades past.
The one occasion where I don’t hate mosquitoes is when VampireBohrok builds one out of Lego. The technique of using flexible hoses to simulate the legs is really effective.
A stormtrooper contemplates what to wear on another day of serving the Empire.

Steef de Prouw (mediocre) presents a lesser well-known ship from the Star Wars universe based on the Harbinger. The hammerhead shape is as distinctive as it is hard to build, featuring techniques such as half plate offsets to replicate the narrowing tips of the hammer shape. You can read more about this 122 stud long SHIP on MOCpages.
It took me a moment to recognize what this sculpture by Tim Simon represents. I thought it was a spaceship or an explosion at first, but it’s actually a bullet shot through an apple! That’s definitely not something you see done in Lego each day.
You don’t have to be an interior designer to recognize this creative and elegant contemporary bedroom and bathroom built by Littlehaulic, the younger sister of the well-known Legohaulic. The bold contrast of the colors black, white, and pink combined with the polished wooden floor helps give a clean and modern look to the rooms. Details such as the rug, the blinds, and the various small decors make one think they were made by a veteran builder.
But you may be surprised to find out that she just turned 13 today! It sure isn’t easy to associate age and talent with a creation like this. Cheers and happy birthday!
