This little train built by Galaktek (Galaktek) is sure to bring cheer to any train fan. The builder has been kind enough to provide some breakdown photos, so I may just be building one of these for my son.
It’s not the first time I’ve blogged something by Pēteris Sprogis (Pēteris Sprogis) as much for the background as for the vehicle he’s showing off. His presentation really makes it feel like this off-road is being unveiled at an auto show. The vehicle itself? Good stuff! It looks functional and fast.
My fellow lug member Dene Quest (DJ Quest) has brought a fun twist to the current spate of Vic Vipers gracing our screens. He’s given it the ability to transform. Not content to merely build a Vic Viper version of a Macross Valkyrie, his transforms into a dinobot. The use of an oversized starfighter tail as a dinosaur tail has me tickled.
Fellow Brother-Brick Tim spotted these, and I couldn’t pass them up. They’re made by a cat who goes by the name Ragskin, and posted on DeviantArt. I know some folks are not fans of Lego themed (but non-Lego made/licensed) art pieces, but I am. In fact, years ago, I welded together some LEGO bricks from steel. They jury of that art show quite liked them, actually. Regardless, I think these wooden minifigs would be a great office decoration, and a little classier than a standard creation. I’d like to think one of these could sit in Jorgen Vig’s office. I especially dig the attention to detail taken on the space man.
 EDIT TG: Actually, Heliodelic pointed me to them, I merely passed the information along.
Today, I came across two great micro scale creations. The first was this stealth missile boat built (virtually) by Evan Melick (Legoism). It really captures the look and feel of this type of sea-craft. In fact, it’s a style of ship that I’ve long wanted to build at minifig scale. It’s great to see that the shapes can be achieved in a manner pleasing to the eye.
Next up, is a lovely little space ship by Vaughan James (legovaughan). Just look at the angles! I love all the various small and compound angles come together to give a cohesive form, while lending the appearance of extra detail. It’s as if the power loader from Alien and a drop ship mated.
Some really fantastic stuff was built for SHIPtember. I keep coming across more and more! I know we’ve posted about some of these, and about the month as a whole, but I just can’t resist the coolness. The latest is this beauty by Damien Labrouse (legodrome).
At first glance, I thought this was a great bit of micro building, then I spotted the minifigs on an EVA. It’s bigger and more detailed than I thought. I think my favorite detail is the stacks of technic bricks at the front. The repetition of form from the holes looks awesome.
I’m ordinarily fond of making up fun titles for my posts here, but with this new creation by Nick V (Brickthing), the title of the photo beats anything I could add. Moreover, this little not is hilarious, adorable, and well built. The use of a Death Star sphere for a head is inspired, as several of the other details.
Apparently, there are some Lego CUUSOO fans in the chalk art world. Check out this amazing rendition of the Curiosity Rover (recently announced to be an upcoming CUUSOO set) on the sidewalk. Thanks to Stephen Pakbaz for the heads up!
Angus MacLane (MacLane) brings us an awesome hardsuit, with a Galidor twist. He’s combined a great model with one of the worst things ever made by Lego. When he hears that Galidor was canceled, he’ll be crying himself to sleep on his colossal pillow.
