While we’ve featured several Portal turrets in the past, this version by Will Page (Haystack Hair) is one of the most accurate Lego renditions and even features opening side panels for the guns. Now I really can’t wait for Portal 2 to come out.
I’ve seen many brick renders of the TARDIS from Doctor Who, but I’ve never seen the interior built with Lego until Mr. Xenomurphy presented his latest creation. You don’t have to be a fan of the TV show to appreciate the striking architectural design with its intricate details and working lights. Check out the gallery on MOCpages for more photos including construction shots.
As evidenced by this sculpture by Lukáš Šógor.
EB Perfectionist spent 300 hours over the course of about a year on this large and highly-detailed French frigate called Achille. The sails and rigging are made from linen and 6 different types of string. For more of the builder’s thoughts, check out the post Eurobricks. Additional photos are on Flickr.
Settlers of Catan is, by all accounts, a rather fun German board game. LEGO is, by all accounts, a rather fun toy. So it makes sense to combine the two.
Except Michael (suparMacho) hasn’t actually built this. He’s use SR3D builder (an LDraw editor) and POVray to render it. Aside from those people lucky enough to use LEGO’s in-house rendering tools this is the most photo-realistic LEGO render I’ve seen.
Chris Malloy posted this brilliant Greek temple. I really have very little to say other than it’s gorgeous and encompasses so much of the feel of the time period and architecture in such a small build.
Chris Edwards once again demonstrates proper way of controling the action with his latest diorama called War Machines Strike. Using clever building techniques as well as puns, Chris shows us what happens when intelligent combat robots throw down their weapons and go on strike, ha! Check out the full gallery on Flickr.
Théo (Titolian) has just posted a very nice little truck. This truck looks truly utilitarian, with just a splash of color thrown on by its corporate owners. There’s also a bit of a near-future sci-fi flair, which is near to my heart.
The last time I had a chance to build (over a month ago), I was attempting a truck myself. I really appreciate some of the solutions for shaping that he’s found. The slope of the windshield, in particular, looks good to me, especially as it relates to the fenders.
Blake Foster‘s third SHIP is a superweapon with the power to “destroy nearly anything produced by humankind.” This 180 stud long model has some eye-catching features like the spherical bridge and the asymmetrical design of the mid-section. The other side of the ship has docks for two minifig-scale fighters. You can see all this and more in the gallery on Flickr or MOCpages.
