Adrian Florea clearly wields a protractor like a geometric Jedi. The varying angles and protruding shapes, coupled with the masterfully complex colour blocking, make his GARC – CopII a very interesting ship to look at. The background story is also good for a chuckle…

As a young Train-head, this week’s builder is a rare beast among our tribe. You may know Matt Hamann from his fine assortment of model engines and rolling stock or from his entertaining writing on the Twee Affect, but you’re about to know him much better. I sat down with Matt on a bicycle made Continue reading →
In my opinion, Adrian Florea is one of the best Space (which in LEGO terms means Science Fiction) builders around. He’s no stranger to this blog, but his latest two creations are absolutely top notch. Adrian achieves fantastically coherent shapes in his models which belie his abundant use of unusual parts and complex connections. The Continue reading →
It took me a few seconds to recognize a Lego part on Adrian Florea‘s newest creation. Either I’m a noob or Adrian used some really obscure pieces to good effect. The only non-purist element is a painted canopy.
Adrian Florea integrates “useless” parts like Rahkshi back covers and aircraft doors in a beautifully sculpted ski-fi flyer called the Honeybadger.
Adrian Florea has managed to sneak away from work long enough to share this excellent creation with us. I’m not sure if it’s based on an actual Maschinen Krieger model, but it certainly fits that style. It’s a tough style to render in the brick, and this is a great job.
I recently came across a quote by Ace Kim, the admin of FBTB, who said “a good picture of a terrible model will look better and be more appealing than a terrible picture of a good model.” To a degree this is very true, which brings us to this interview with Fredo Houben (Fredoichi), a Continue reading →
A while ago we saw a the mecha from District 9 by Brian Kescenovitz. Now, Adrian Florea (Olog) built what some have considered impossible – the organic-looking alien species known as the prawns. You’ll have to zoom in on this creation to appreciate all the subtle ingenious parts usages on this realistic rendition of Christopher Continue reading →
Oh, and talent like Adrian Florea‘s. The droid arms are connected to blue flex-tubing, giving the repeated element an excellent curve.
The next cycle of LEGO Ambassadors has been announced and includes 45 fans spanning 27 nationalities and 50 different groups, which is impressive in its diversity and serves as a testimonial to the worldwide interest in the hobby. The following lists the Ambassadors that were chosen from the 86 nominees, including the group(s) they represent Continue reading →
As many LEGO fan communities discovered last year, convincing community members to step up and say something nice about each of the nominees proved to be harder than anticipated. Some communities were even unable to submit their nominees due to lack of testimonials. Unfortunately, this part of the process is proving no less challenging this Continue reading →
Is it a train? Is it a mecha? Yes. According to Adrian Florea (Olog), this bipedal mecha with wheels on its feet can fit “any gauge and any track, from your grandma’s 4.5V to RC tracks.”
Adrian Florea has built a spectacular utility ship. Not content to just build a great space ship, though, he’s captured it in the midst of an explosion. I love how Adrian has managed to capture the energy and motion of the explosion.
Adrian Florea‘s excellent Zerg Baneling from StarCraft II just makes the game’s release date seem that much farther away. And don’t miss Matt de Lanoy’s Banshee.
Adrian Florea is quite the talented builder and his creations always have that little extra bit of flair. This one has more than a little bit. Keep your head down and watch out for those sharks! Thanks to Bruce for reminding me of this one…
