Castor Troy has recreated the two main characters in Mario Ramos’ book, Off to Bed, Little Monster! / a La Cama, Monstruito!. I think the monster is simply too cute for words and the sense of mischief as he runs from the man is portrayed perfectly.
Mike Dung has built a lovely version of RWBY’s Blake. The sense of motion and power in this build really jumps out at you. Mike is a master of anime characters and it shows in this figure.
Patrick Massey just posted a diorama of a gorgeous tan city. I love the splashes of color from the buildings and the texture of the walls. The scene is also packed full of detail and “life”. The longer I look at it, the more intriguing details I find!
Gonkius has created one of the most gorgeous LEGO rockets I’ve ever seen. Those seamless curves…I can’t get over them. They are everywhere! Looking at their photostream, it would appear this is their first publicly released build. I can’t wait to see more.
The indomitable Mark Erickson has created yet another beautiful scene. I love the detailing on all of these buildings. Mark has done a great job of packing them with believable historical detail, making them all work together while still keeping each building unique. Not an easy job at all. My hat is off to you, sir!
Some time ago, Peter Reid inflicted the cutest little robots on the universe and things have never been the same. Christened “Blips”, they have covered the galaxy in a widespread epidemic of love, hate and rampant insomnia. This picture is a collection of their vehicles and it’s a thing of beauty. I could see this as a poster on the wall in my LEGO room. Hmmmm.
Michael Kuroda has built yet another great piece that features wonderful gaming icons from our childhood. This mosaic of the classic ghosts from Pac-Man is simple, yet elegant. Michael has done a wonderful job of capturing their look and feel, while using the border to symbolize their home, the maze from which they can never escape.
Mihai Marius Mihu calls this piece the “Citadel of the Loud Curse”. If I lived anywhere near that thing, I’d be running for the hills! I don’t know which is more frightening…the gaping red mouth or the silent ash-colored, house-crushing Titan. Regardless, this is a very striking build and, like good art, it draws out a response from its viewers. Mihai is exceptionally skilled at that!
Steven Erickson bred this lovely drake and it is just loaded with character. The smooth lines and expressiveness of the creature really puts this over the top. Also, tying those bionicle pieces so seamlessly into a predominately “system” build takes real skill.
Deborah Higdon has made another lovely set of bookends. I love the vintage classroom vibe going on here. The beautiful desks, the stove and the map are the obvious stars here but the view out the window is a hidden gem. This makes me nostalgic for one-room school houses…
