If you need a break from fighting Dementors, you can always retreat to the cozy respite of Hagrid’s hut. Wookieewarrior crafts this iconic building from Harry Potter using tiles and plates to simulate the detailed texture of a cobblestone wall. The landscape is quite sophisticated as well, featuring four shades of green and parts we don’t see often such as tan levers used for grass.

This UCS-scale Buzz Droid is ready to sabotage thanks to its creator Takamichi Irie. Once it catches on to your ship, there’s no escape from its whirling saw and disruptive claws, unless you have a clever R2 droid to zap it in the eye. The technique for the hemisphere shells is spot on. Check out the work-in-progress shots to see the breakdown of the build.
The artistic builder who goes by Why not? presents an untitled work depicting a painter creating his own world of tranquility amidst a menacing cityscape. Is this a stark vision of the future or a grim reminder of the past? Either way the message is strong!

This medieval village by robbadopdop is alive with details and action. Each building features different construction techniques and some are placed diagonally to achieve a natural layout to the village. The windmill on the hill create staple landmark to top off this medieval LEGO masterpiece.
The large diorama features lots of excellent details, including some great yellow hay bales under the awning on this green-roofed hut.
Jonathan Walker has the art of SHIP-building down to a science. His innovative organic designs and advanced building techniques are evident in his latest work called the Dreadful Angel. The curved engine core and the dual prongs are distinct features that come together nicely in one fluid model.
French builder Kloou. creates a detailed and technically advanced model of Rapunzel’s tower using tiles for the round tower. If you look closely, you can see Rapunzel’s hair is an actually braided piece of yarn. The builder certainly has not spared a strand of detail.
Just as stunning is the textured roof made of flag clips to imitate the individual shingles.
Alexis Dos Santos has you and your cargo covered with his steampunk skyboat to ferry it all across the skies. This multi-layered blimp is the first of its kind that I’ve seen that’s also excellently crafted and presented. The sand-green cabin is a nice touch to break the earth-toned colors.
