Streetfighter Custom Minifig Combo!

Julian Fong (levork) is a minifig customiser that I greatly admire… his designs always capture the essence of the subject whilst also making the transference to Lego style perfectly.

This group of custom minifigs based on the Streetfighter computer games are absolutely fantastic:

He has also submitted this to CUUSOO which in my view would be a project that definitely deserves your support.

Mini LEGO Tumbler from Batman

We’ve seen some great LEGO Tumblers here on TBB over the years, but this mini version by Tiler just might be my favorite.

With a great economy of parts and lighting to enhance the angles (black LEGO is especially tough to photograph), Tiler pulls it off wonderfully. He’s also built a batch of great camo versions:

Life-size Warhammer 40K Bolt Pistol

We’ve featured many of Jarek‘s Warhammer 40K creations in the past, but this is a first. Instead of scale models of vehicles or troops from the games, he’s built a life-sized gun from the game. He’s built in several cool play features, though not launching a projectile, which you can see in his youtube video, below.

Return to Schloss Ferkelstein

At first glance you may think you’re looking at another typical large castle diorama, but a second look will quickly reveal anachronistic elements such as a train, a military patrol boat, and… a mad scientist’s lab? Indeed, this diorama by Ciamosław Ciamek is no ordinary castle. Check out the story on Flickr and visit Brickshelf for all the detail shots.

Martini Racing VW Van by Malte Dorowski

It’s no surprise that Malte Dorowski’s most recent vehicles are gorgeous, but the added accessories and matching colors make this set of vehicles even more outstanding. The stunning Porsche 935 Malte built back in March, but he’s now paired it with a Volkswagon van, accessories, and a crew. This is an excellent use of the rarely seen Technic figures.


One Small Step...

It took just one lifetime for man to go from first flight to first man on the moon. That’s awfully impressive. It’s been 43 years since those brave men first set foot on the lunar landscape.

Kevin Murney‘s tribute to the tenacity and ingenuity of the human race is fitting, and impressive in its own right.

You can see more pictures in his flickr gallery!

NASA has some pretty nifty stuff to commemorate Apollo 11’s historic mission. Check it out!

Bell Boeing V-44 Pelican

Mike isn’t the only one building great micro-military aircraft lately.

Stijn (Red Spacecat) posted this near-future VTOL/STOL tiltrotor aircraft on the 4th of July. Stijn’s design is very clearly a future progression of the V-22 Osprey, extended for mission profiles with far heavier cargo.

The custom sticker work is sublime, and the little touches like landing wheels are excellent. Check out lots more photos on Flickr.
