The Dolmen from The Elder Scrolls Online

Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy) spent over half a year and over 11,000 pieces to build this ritualistic portal known as the Dolmen from The Elder Scrolls Online. The most intriguing part of this diorama is the mosaic of runes surrounding the anchor centerpiece. Check out the detail shots to see some close-up action.

Medieval LEGO [Review]

Medieval Lego is a book written by Greyson Beights that combines major events in medieval history with illustrations in Lego. Specifically, the book features condensed summaries written by experts in the subject about events that took place in England and Scotland from the 11th century to 15th century. Each chapter is accompanied by photos with content made entirely out of Lego by fan builders. This interesting combination will no doubt appeal to Lego fans and history buffs, but you don’t have to be either to find the book approachable in its simplicity. Below is a video of my review:

MIDA Multi-Tool from Destiny

Elliott Feldman spent several months to build a life-sized MIDA Multi-Tool Scout Rifle from the video game Destiny. The model is instantly recognizable to those who have played the game, but more interesting is the fact that the creation was scaled to one Lego piece. Find out what this part is in the description video on YouTube, which also showcases other features of the gun.

Chugging across the skies

Vince_Toulouse presents another piece of exotic dieselpunk technology with his latest transport bearing resemblance to a train. There are some old school elements at work including skateboard ramps and basketball hoops. My favorite portion is the generator in the mid-section, where I can already visualize the dark blue fins rotating. Check out more photos on Flickr.

Luxury living

The talented César Soares has been churning out one masterpiece after another, and his latest is a luxury beach-side residence featuring beautiful modern architectural design. I can’t decide which I’d like to do first: relax in the infinity edge pool, lounge on the balcony and enjoy the seaside view or go for a swim at the private beach. Check out more photos of the creation on Flickr.

Wild Karrde delivers precious cargo

There are so many ships in the Star Wars Universe and always new ones to discover if you’re a casual fan. I’ve never heard of the Wild Karrde smuggling ship until seeing this rendition by KW Vauban. The model stays true to the appearance of the original and even features a detailed interior that you can see in the gallery on MOCpages.
