Michael Jasper (mijasper) is no stranger to TBB. His creative uses of odd-ball parts are always elegant examples of what can be done with LEGO. His latest desk makes brilliant use of the printed 1×1 plates from the Minecraft set as well as the new ice cream cone from Friends…not to mention the lipstick usage!
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 →
Sometimes it’s not the biggest models that make a splash, as Michael Jasper proves with this stunning dolphin sculpture. And, no, I don’t think Michael intended a Hitchhiker’s Guide reference, but that’s what I think of every time I see dolphins.
To help raise awareness of men’s health issues like prostate cancer, each November many men attempt to grow facial hair. Some men succeed. Things appear to be a lot simpler in minifig-land, according to Michael Jasper in his latest vignette.

I like all the simple clever techniques and the sheer range of elements used by Michael Jasper to make this little scene of Miraculix Panoramix brewing a potion. Lots of “What is that?” and “How did he do that?” to keep the eye entertained. Via Classic-Castle.

Michael Jasper showcased some cool string bass and saxophone designs played by his Some Like it Hot characters last week, but he’s just added some more amazing musical instrument designs.

I kept myself awake on a recent international flight by watching movies, including — for the very first time — Some Like it Hot. Michael Jasper does justice to Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis with his latest pair of minifig characters. Via Klocki.
