Shannon Sproule continues his ongoing storyline of Battle for the Moon with this gloriously fun Battle Mech for the US forces. Last year Shannon had used the retro robot collecti-figs as large mecha within’ his A.T.L.A.S. Death Ray Complex micro-space build. You will often see builders expand upon a previous model, but seeing micro builds go minifig scale is such a treat. Well done Shanno!
Missed this on the first pass, but I had to point out the wind-up key…fabulous detail!
These tiny space planes by Griffin! are fantastic models. At micro scale, every piece used counts, and this builder has made sure to choose carefully. Every element used in this creation appears to have a purpose, represents an important part of the ship, and contributes to the overall aesthetic. I think my favorite detail may be the binoculars as intakes, but the minifig skis as the fuselage are also fantastic.
This castle display by The Brick Time Team is a pretty attractive display. There is a lot of detail, and the edges of the display are decorated quite nicely. What really sets it apart however, is its modular nature. With this configuration, the builders can quickly convert this display into a variety of options. I think there’s a lot of potential here for expansion.
Moko has, in my not entirely humble opinion, dominated the world of competitive LEGO sculptural figure making. Which is, to say, that he does them well, and this one is no exception. I’m pretty sure this one needs a “kawaii!”.
The redoubtable Iain Heath (AKA Number One) has boldly gone where no one has dared go before. This is Star Trek: The Next Generation as it should have been. With relatively few pieces and lot of moxy, Iain has managed to capture the true nature of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Doctor Beverly Crusher, Counselor Deanna Troi, Lieutenant Worf and Wesley Crusher.
Come see this in person later this week at SEALUG‘s LEGO display at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle.
Torokimasa brings you your daily dose of mecha, straight out of Japan, with his “Blue rose”.
✠Andreas returns to TBB with a detailed diorama that looks much larger than its 16×16 footprint. The scene is part of the ongoing, multi-builder storyline called The Purge. I tried unsuccessfully to get into the narrative, but my eyes kept wandering back to the model. Nice work Andreas.
Schfio made them and they are too adorable for words.
Tama and Friends is Japanese Anime series that originally ran in 1994.
This gorgeous river fortress was built by Soccersnyderi for Guilds of Historica.
I really like how the castle spans the river and the landscaping is quite nice. All the pieces really seem to mesh and create something special here. You also have to love the roof on the main tower.
Its Friday night in Las Vegas, and this six pack isn’t going to drink itself. Enjoy this sample of rovers from FebRovery 2013.

And finally, a FebRovery 6-Pack would not be complete without something from Crimso Giger. You still have a little time left to get in on the action, if you’re so inclined.
