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.
Christoph Monnaie’s (stenrtje) is loaded up with all sorts of awesome detail and greebly goodness.
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”
Last week, Karf’s grasshopper got crushed and eaten by Mihai’s Owl with a score of 7 to 1. Cast your vote, via the super secret ballot box/comments, to decide who rides the waves of victory and who goes crying home to mama!
I haven’t posted one of my own builds in awhile, so thought I would share this one. I had to build a Medieval Feast with a 16×16 stud footprint for a challenge in which I’m involved. I have to say that I’m liking the Lord of the Rings elves much more than I expected.
Shelly Timson is the creator of this work of art. She wanted to build a Tardis for the upcoming 50th anniversary of the iconic show, Doctor Who (just ten days away as of this writing!). She asked Rob Deakin, founder of the studio Inside the Brick, if she could use the studio’s supply of Dark Blue bricks. Over four thousand bricks and three weeks later this lovely Tardis emerged. The TARDIS, along with other creations, is on display at the Studio in Fairfield, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria in Australia.
Check out the Flickr Set for more pictures and detail. Flickr comments have been disabled on all the pictures except for this one. If you want to tell Rob how awesome this build is, I’m sure he will be passing the comments on back to the builder.
I know, I know, Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year and I’m not helping matters by posting Christmas creations in November. I’m sorry, but this Santa was too good to pass up. Jeff Cunningham has build an awesome Santa head. At first I thought it was a really nice display piece until I read the description. Come to find out, he can wear the thing and see out the eyes! I’m impressed, Jeff, very impressed.
Tyler Clites (legohaulic)does it again with this pile of curvy goodness. This model is a recreation of a tank designed by legendary film-maker and artist, Hayao Miyazaki. In the words of that immortal tanker, Donald Sutherland, “It’s a mother beautiful tank!”.
