Masterful storyteller Bart De Dobbelaer shares another otherworldly scene with us in this mysterious diorama. As much as I enjoy Bart’s episodic stories, the lack of backstory here is somewhat nice as well, leaving the viewer to fill in the blanks for themselves.
It’s a good week for small mecha, as hot on the heels of the previous gundams we have a double fistful of pintsize brawlers.
Just because it’s not friday doesn’t mean we can’t spill a little blood. Vote your winner below and we’ll see you fight fans another week for the next pay-per-view Two for Tuesday bloodbath.
Dane Erland (Mechanekton) has been ladling out delicious servings of mecha goodness in a distinctly stubby and bulky style. The most recent of these has a name best not repeated in either polite or impolite company, so I’ll let the picture do the talking.
And harking back to a simpler time (aka four months ago), Dane posted this duo of deadly tin cans brimming with character.
But that’s only half the build. Jason has come up with a fiendishly clever solution to the problem of integrating self-driving vehicles into Lego displays. While others have used magnets for this type of implementation, his solution is the most subtle and straightforward I’ve seen. I’m very much looking forward to seeing this put into practice.
The latest build from Gabriel Thompson (qi_tah) is this splendid sloop, suitable for either war or peace. The bow and aft curves are especially nice, and all tied together with a cheerful color scheme that adds personality to both the boat and her crew.
Maelven (Sydag) brings us this gorgeous vision of the future of shipping with the Brynhildr tanker. The clean lines and vivid colors make this industrial ship look as good as any luxury space-yacht. If this is the future of long-distance trucking, then sign me up.
I fell in love with Calin’s superb MaK SAFS as soon as he posted them, but while they are an uncannily accurate reproduction of the rounded source material they lacked that sense of excessive viciousness that I love so much.
So, having adopted the core of his model with some small changes, I incorporated spindly arms and digitigrade legs to get something much more sinister. Add in some boilerplate creepy backstory and a name from Native American mythology and voila, you’ve got a monstrous mech and six of his dearest friends.
