I’m a big fan of walking tanks, and this one by Jas Nagra (J5N) is no exception. The details and shaping are great on this one. Sticker usage is great, and this particular minigun design is new to me.
This little diorama from A Plastic Infinity (A Plastic Infinity) really caught my attention. The majority is in monotone, which makes the few elements of color really draw the eye. The transparent blue flowing from the mining bot (which is a brilliant little sphere) catches the eye, while still seeming a bit muted. I, like the sentry bot, was immediately intrigued by the red dot growing nearby.
Make sure you check out his full gallery, as there are several other creations there that I’ve been tempted to post over the past few weeks.
Like many people in my generation, I loved The Never Ending Story in my youth. Just looking at this build by Carl Merriam (Carlmerriam) brings a smile to my face.
Thomas W Sylon-tw brings us an aircraft befitting the name Pelican. The fat belly of this beast evokes the cavernous beak of the avian namesake, and is perfect for a cargo hauler. Long time readers may recall that I too, have used this name for a Cato craft.
Name aside, this is a cool plane. The fat belly is an interesting and unusual shape. The color blocking is excellent, and the emblem looks great, popping on a field of blue. The engines bring a nice level of detail and grit to balance the smooth simplicity of the fuselage.
Ryan H (eldeem) brings us the household assistant of the future. In addition to being a funny concept, the creation itself is very well built. The color scheme ties together quite nicely, and really suits the idea of a household appliance. These tie in wonderfully with the hub less wheels, which are an awesome detail.
FateHeart tells us that his mecha is holding two heat picks as close combat weapons. Despite the description, I can’t help but imagine this thing stomping around a huge airfield, directing gigantic aircraft. Weapons aside, this is a cool an solid looking creation. I find the white fins on the back to be especially stylish.
A new creation from me, though it’s actually a year old. For some time, I’ve imagined that my Iron Mountain Legion creations needed an enemy. Not just an enemy, but a worth match, beyond the stereotypical post apocalyptic marauders and mutants. My intention was to build something that looked like it belonged in the same world, but with a clearly different design aesthetic. I hope I’ve succeeded, but will let our readers be the judge.
The name means “Flea,” at least if Google translate has steered me right. The shape certainly reminds me of the tiny biting insect, anyway
Since 1977, there has been no shortage of Star Fighters being built inspired by various letters of the alphabet. While I don’t find the resemblance to the letter V particularly striking in this ship, I think that may be a good thing. A little subtlety in approaching the lettering system is part of what makes this ship by halfbeak () good. The use of a Christmas tree ornament for a cockpit is very well executed, and blends well with the other organic elements of the build.
I’d like to imagine that Gary (Garry) was repeatedly saying “I’m the Juggernaut” in his best Vinnie Jones voice as he assembled this. I love the use of a bionicle mask for armor on a minifig hardsuit. It looks great, and although this is a virtual MOC, the connection looks legit. If I had any of these masks, I’d be tempted to try it out! The choice of head for the pilot is also a very clever addition, really making use of the eye-slots.
I missed this MaK creation, when Kosmas Santosa ( first posted it. Fortunately, he’s followed up with a nice little scene, giving me a chance to blog this cool mecha. The tool cart and gas can are both nice details that help make the scene. The builder also found a nice chunk of broken down wall for background, it looks great.
