Mihai Marius Mihu has rapidly become one of my favorite builders. When I saw the ‘work-in-progress’ pics, I was immediately looking forward to the finished build. Even then I was unprepared for how stylish the final creation turned out to be. I’ll avoid the obvious pun and just say that this is one beautiful build.
Welcome, die-hard fans, to the weekly Battle of the Ages here in the gore-soaked venue known as The Brothers Brick Arena! Tonight’s battle-royale features two builders known far and wide for their incredible skills and unique styles. Let’s go to the tale of the tape:
Levitating in the Red Corner, running high on testoterone and energy drinks, we have Mihai Marius Mihu and his Demonic Amulet:
Dancing in the Blue Corner, with a swagger in his step and a chip on his shoulder, Moko brings the chibi with his Knight Gundam:
As always you make the call, in the comments, as to who will be wined and dined, and who will go home to a cup-of-noodles. The winner of last week’s shindig was Mike Dung’s Kagamine Rin with a score of 8-6. Enjoy and remember: you paid for the whole seat but you will only need the edge!
After a brief hiatus, the Fights return in The Brothers Brick Arena. Join us for another fine night of fancy footwork and flying fisticuffs! Tonight’s matchup is a head-to-head battle of character as Mike Dung takes on Pascal.
In the Red Corner, Mike Dung’s “Kagamine Rin”:

Steven Erickson (Brother Steven) built this fun medieval scene and I love how the jesters are all “balanced” on top of one another. The expressions and posing of the minifigs in this scene is spot-on. The look of anticipation on the bottom-most jester, as he prepares to step up onto the ball is hysterical!
Víctor Martínez Nouvilas (MolochBaal) has created a beautiful copy of the copy of Dippy, a diplodocus skeleton found in Wyoming in 1899. Plaster copies were donated to a number of Natural History Museums all over the world. Víctor built this to celebrate the 100th birthday of the Museum of Natural Science in Madrid’s copy of Dippy, which was finished on December 1st, 1913.
My photostream is currently flooded with Vic Vipers so I felt impelled to post two that really jumped out at me.
Rodney Bistline’s (Buster®) contribution literally leaps out of the screen in this lovely homage to vintage space box art.
Dead Frog inc. has rolled out the cutest little tank ever. Dubbed “T3f”, it incorporates are the all the essential features of a battlefield death-dealer with the drop-dead cuteness of a kitten.
Welcome to another action-packed night in The Brothers Brick Arena. For you, our faithful fans, we have some stealthy, high-flying action as our competitors duke it out in the air! In the Red Corner, raining down death from above, we have Dan Siskind‘s Black Hawk. In the Blue Corner, with an awesome 80s theme song, Alex Jones and his Airwolf. So get comfortable there on the edge of your seat, as rotors fly and giants collide in this week’s edition of Friday Night Fights!
“UCS Stealth Black Hawk”
