Blake Baer and Jack Bittner displayed their Amon Hen collaborative diorama at BrickFair earlier this month. They did an excellent job portraying the landscape and the ruins while adding some neat features such as the waterfall and striations in the rocks. There’s tons of detail shots in the gallery on MOCpages.
Kyle (Slushey) knows how to move cargo in style. I can picture his heavy crate mover scooting around spaceports, transferring goods bound from Aldebaran to Alpha Centauri.
For the three of you out there who didn’t order the new LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar from Amazon.com, it’s also now available from the LEGO Shop online.
It’s the same price as from Amazon ($40), and you get VIP points.
This piece of work by David Collins (intrond) fits in a unique genre that I can’t decide. It looks like a mix between a spaceship and a mechanical creature. The color blocking and the multifaceted chunks are pleasing to look at. A few stickers add the vital details.
Mecha expert Ryuhei Kawai (Kwi-Chang) brings us yet another interesting piece. There are cool red hoses over the top, pistons on the back, and some crazy-long forearms. I can’t help but get a District 9 vibe from it, too.
The LEGO Shop online has just posted their ordering page for LEGO Minifigures Series 5.
As usual, you’re limited to 16 minifigs, and you don’t get to stand in the store aisle and feel them through the bags, but it’s a guaranteed way to get your hands on these right away.
UPDATE: Jason Junker has posted a handy guide to identifying Series 5 minifigs by touch.
Adding a pirate flag to a big stompy mech just makes it that much more awesome, as Kyle Vrieze (bermudafreze) proves with this gun platform. The white on the legs, red missile tubes, and judicious use of stickers/decals all add little splashes of color.
Stefan Käsmayer (-2×4-) captures the essence of a samurai house, complete with a well-tended garden and secure wall. I’m especially impressed with details like the slatted windows and stone base of the wall.
At first glance, one sees a typically-fashioned dollhouse. However, this house is made out of Lego by TFOL Lasse Vestergård and his mother. It is made to the curious scale of a custom-built 1958 Lego mascot. Check out the individual room details on Flickr.
Can you find the typewriter, the LEGO wooden duck, and the fried eggs?
Mr. Xenomurphy‘s scene of the battle between Spider-Man and Sandman justly portrays this somewhat obscure villain. The building, despite being the backdrop, is also another highlight of the scene. The usage of 1X2 bricks and tiles mimics the realistic look of the buildings.
