Ever since I had the chance at Brickworld Chicago 2011 to wear my good friend Ben’s LEGO Master Chief helmet, I wanted to construct a helmet myself. It was far more difficult to build than I expected, and was nothing like building other 1:1 scale builds. I’ve attempted this project before – first time in Continue reading →
My passion for LEGO and gaming has resulted in quite an expansive arsenal of gaming weapons, and now I present the most massive of them all: the classic dual-tube rocket launcher from the Halo series in full 1:1 scale. I chose to build the most recent iteration featured in Halo 5: Guardians. It came down Continue reading →
Of all the new weapon variants introduced in Halo 5: Guardians, Nornfang, Spartan Linda-058’s custom sniper rifle, is my favorite. The camouflage and lone wolf designs applied to the classic Halo sniper body was inspiration enough to get building. My LEGO replica of Nornfang measures 54″ long (that’s 171 LEGO studs), weighs 9 pounds, and Continue reading →
I’ve been playing a LOT of Halo 5 recently – it’s a welcome return to form for the series after the slight let-down of Halo 4. As a result, I’m embarrassed I missed this stunning build until now. Cody Fowler took 3 years to put together this excellent recreation of UNSC Infinity, the spaceship star Continue reading →
With just over a week and a half left in February, builders from around the world are gearing up for the annual MocAthalon competition, where teams of 5 attempt to tackle 30 different build categories in a span of the month of March. I competed in this contest in 2013 and it was certainly one Continue reading →
Nick Jensen is well known for his recreations of iconic science fiction weaponry. His latest definitely doesn’t disappoint! This gun features a see-through scope, working trigger, removable magazine and a sliding charge handle. So this isn’t just a beauty queen, meant to grace a wall or shelf. It is meant to be played with! Nicely Continue reading →
Thomas W Sylon-tw brings us an aircraft befitting the name Pelican. The fat belly of this beast evokes the cavernous beak of the avian namesake, and is perfect for a cargo hauler. Long time readers may recall that I too, have used this name for a Cato craft. Name aside, this is a cool plane. Continue reading →
The fourth annual MocAthalon will once again take place throughout the entire month of March on MOCpages. This is a competition where teams of 5 build up to 30 creations from 30 unique and whimsical categories announced at the start of the contest. Visit the contest group on MOCpages for rules and to sign up Continue reading →
Sean and Steph Mayo are ever so innovative in their builds. They created a mosaic of Cortana from Halo featuring spinning columns of 1×1 transparent round plates. You have to see the video for the incredible effect. You can read more about this building technique on MosaicBricks.
We’re not even close to being done featuring all the awesome LEGO models debuted at BrickCon 2012 earlier this month. I had the privilege of hanging out with Catsy as he assembled his LEGO Halo ringworld for the first time right there at the con — it was simply too huge to fully assemble at Continue reading →
With Halo 4 on the horizon, Nick Jensen is gearing up for battle with his latest life-sized LEGO Halo weapon: the BR85HB SR Battle Rifle. I’m pretty sure Nick has made just about all the UNSC weapons out of Lego by now. What’s next, the Rocket Launcher or Spartan Laser?
The LEGO Halo group over on Flickr is hosting a contest that challenges LEGO builders to design their own sets to counter the fact that one of LEGO’s competitors has the Halo license. Théo (Titolian) joins the fray with this fake LEGO Architecture set. It’s an interesting little structure, wonderfully presented and immediately recognizable. (And Continue reading →
