Michał Kaźmierczak spent 7 months to create the iconic gates of Erebor as seen in The Hobbit. The scene shows the meeting between Bard the Bowman and Dwarfs. This colossal build is 5’3″ tall, and you have to see it with the builder to appreciate the scale.
I saw Paul Hetherington‘s modern townhouse at Brickcon last year and was immediately impressed by the elegant artistic style of the creation. There is a fully detailed interior along with working light fixures. Take a look at more photos on Flickr to see different angles of the building, each offering a new visual aesthetic.
This creation by Bill Vollbrecht is a building from Balboa Park in San Diego called the El Prado Arcade. The ornate architecture of the model is stunning and is a real treat for the eyes.
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.
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.
Even though the fish in this koi pond by Chris Maddison are inanimate, this creation is still pleasant to look at with its articulate placement of elements within two concentric circles.
Kill Bill is one of my favorite movies and I love this poster by Jared. It even features a brick-built Hattori Hanzo signet on the katana.
Meanwhile, Young’s Lego presents this beautifully photographed and edited image that captures the epic battle between The Bride and Gogo with her deadly ball and chain weapon.
I never thought it’s possible to build such a realistic minifig-scale Cacodemon from Doom, but Jarek with his skills for crafting minute details has proved me wrong. This vignette would make a killer desk-buddy for any Doom fan who also likes Lego.
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.
