Jason Corlett spent 70 hours making this faithful replica of the hulking Cherno Alpha jaeger from Pacific Rim. Standing almost three feet tall, this build looks ready to cancel the apocalypse all on its own.
There’s been something of a renaissance in computer rendered Lego builds lately, and leading the charge is the prolific Garry (Garry_rocks).
Using parts in colors that have never been available toes the line of what I consider cheating, but there’s no question that the results are stunning. I’m particularly fond of these two fearsome builds from the Warhammer 40k universe.
legorobo:waka shares this awesome armored train carrying a squad of tough looking mecha. The train’s brutal lines and tank turrets evoke a dieselpunk style, with just the right amount of detail mixed in alongside the solid slab-like surfaces.
This comic book backdrop by Thorsten Bonch (Xenomurphy) is an impressive exercise in scale, using the large-font logo of the infamous fictional tabloid as the setting for two lesser-known characters from the Spider-Man franchise to duke it out.
Lego, by its very nature, can often look fragile and plastic, but this castle by Gideon_83 is impressively solid and substantial. The nicely textured walls are thick and imposing, and the battlements and numerous arrow slits seem ready to rain fire on anyone trying to arrive with a battering ram.
This elegant rendition of Minas Tirith by lisqr strikes a nice balance between detail and simplicity, managing to instantly capture the iconic style of the fortified city while not overwhelming with unnecessary minutiae.
The LEGO Movie is out today, and since you’re reading this blog you’re probably making plans to go see it in the near future! Unlike Andrew, I’d been hyped to see this movie ever since the first trailer, and somehow the final product managed to exceed my lofty expectations.
Nick (DarthNick) built this diorama as part of a display for the Toronto premiere, and I think the build (background included) does an excellent job of capturing the spirit of the film.
Milo_Z comes back from hiatus with a vengeance, posting this killer mech inspired by concept art from St Theo. Possessing a gangly greeblyness that’s not often seen in mecha, this is the last thing any fugitive would want to see on their trail.
The color combinations are particularly nice, with each color tied to a different function on the mech. And despite the spindly appearance, it even fits a fig!
While the mech in the foreground might be the focus of this latest scene from Nooreuyed, the dense foliage and vibrant greenery of the jungle background is the real star here. The action isn’t lacking either, with muzzle flashes and splashing water all combining to really bring this scene to life.
After herculean effort, Mark Kelso (Amhakia) finally unveils the massive Halo universe SHIP he began four years ago. No less impressive than the effort itself, the final product more than manages to live up to expectations.
Seven feet long and with every inch superbly detailed, this build is truly a labor of love. Head on over to the MOCpages gallery to read Mark’s thoughts on completing this marathon of a build, or head over to his flickr if you’re inclined to scroll back to the first work in progress shots from 2010.
