The fortified city of Amortug

If you like big castles, we got another treat for you. This work by Marco den Besten (‘Ecclesiastes) and Tijger-San features a classical approach of using blocky gray wall and towers, but the patterns in the architecture makes an otherwise simple structure appear ornate. You can see more photos of the creation on Eurobricks.

CUB3 – a rolling ball sculpture

Those who went to Brickworld in Chicago and Tampa last year probably remember this crazy cuboid contraption by Tyler (Legohaulic). Built using an abundance of Technic elements and flex tubing, this creation features conveyor belts that lift ball bearings and lets them drop through one of 4 spiraling and twisting tracks. Check out the masterfully produced video to see it in action.

Lego poster of The Thing

If you didn’t read the title and didn’t know we’re a Lego blog, I bet you probably didn’t think this poster of The Thing by Matt Rowntree was created with Lego bricks. Although most of the background features scattered pieces, the overall appearance still convincing. Check out MOCpages for photos of the setup.
