H. P. Lovecraft is, arguably, the most important author in the history of horror. The recalcitrant racist from Providence basically invented the modern horror genre back at the turn of the 20th century. Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy) has created (with some help from Legopard) a highly atmospheric LEGO imagining of his study, complete with diabolical details Continue reading →

Are you already getting tired of the MocAthalon? Then I’ve got good news for you. Simon Pickard and James Pegrum, both active members of the Greco-Roman LEGO group, are organising a contest that strikes me as new and original. No, it’s not about wrestling; the aim is to create a LEGO scene that depicts an Continue reading →
Just when I think I’ve seen everything that could be done with LEGO, Blake Baer (Blake’s Baericks) goes and does something new. This Mindstorms-operated bookshelf safe is amazing. Actually it is more than amazing, it is incredible. Building the books and disguising a safe inside would have been enough, but Blake goes one step further Continue reading →
It’s actually quite hard getting LEGO ruins to look right — it’s not as simple as knocking a few bricks out of the building you’ve just made. Kyle (K.Kreations) blows a big hole in his building and shatters the windows to recreate the look of a ravaged city in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. I also like Continue reading →
.TheBricks invites you inside his bathroom for a look around, and there is a great deal to see. The builder asks the timeless question “What is it with girls and bathrooms?”. I will leave it to you, constant reader, to answer that one. This model is an entry for the 2013 MocAthalon, under the category Continue reading →
Blake Baer (Blake’s Baericks) created this scene for the ongoing MOCathalon. I am sure most people are like Blake (and myself), in that Spaceman Spiff is their favourite Calvin & Hobbes character. Well Blake not only did the intrepid space explorer justice, he also did a wonderful job of creating a beautiful alien landscape full Continue reading →
The 2013 MocAthalon is churning out some imaginative entries, like this future-sport diorama from Jon Blackford, a.k.a. Heiwa71 called “Zero-G Classic Spaceball”. Constructed for the category “No Gravity”, this impressive model features Classic Sports boilerplate like cheerleaders, goals, fans and even a machine to generate the “jump-ball”. The only thing curiously missing is a score-board, Continue reading →
One of the MocAthalon categories this year is to build a medieval inn. Julien Andries (Julandrius) has built one full of character and detail — from the battered tile roof to the splotched walls and rough stonework.
This edgy version of Little Red Riding Hood, by Evan B., depicts her in the midst of an anti-wolf vendetta. This build is quite striking. I think this is a case where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The girl is nicely done, the landscaping is good, the wolf and the Continue reading →
….Your training is complete, bruceywan. Bruce Lowell, Jedi Lego master, has made a 1:1 replica of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber from A New Hope with a full length blade using 300+ 3×3 radar dishes for MocAthalon 2013 on MOCPages. It’s not as clumsy or as random as a blaster, but an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.
Imagine built this little scene for the ongoing Mocathalon competition. He says it’s for the “not so lame excuse” category of the competition, but that’s probably because there’s no “horrific nightmare” category. This little scene does a grea job of expressing motion, as well as a state of mind.
LEGO magnets are cool, but most people just use them for connecting trains or picking up crates. Not so for Simon Liu, the ever-innovative Canadian builder. This mass transit suspension bridge is actually held aloft by magnetism, providing a cushy platform for the mag-lev train that rides on it over an earth-quake riddled fault-line. Be 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 →
This week’s builder is one of those rare people in the hobby that seems to be universally loved. As hard as I tried and no matter how much money I spread around I could not dig up any dirt on Simon Liu, so either he’s some kind of “made” Canadian mobster or he really is Continue reading →
Elliott Feldman‘s diorama is an example of the unhindered mind at work. At first glance I passed this MOC as another castle creation, but the builder reminded me to take another look, which quickly revealed subjects from different themes mashed into the diorama. It even features a spoof on Super Mario and Halo. Take a Continue reading →
