A life-long LEGO fan, Caylin returned to the hobby as an adult in 2003, after her mother bought her a basic creator tub as a joke. Her mother regrets this.
You'll probably find her online at Classic Castle, and occassionally FBTB.
For real-world stuff, she maintains her membership with SEALUG, the Seattle LEGO Users Group -- though geographically speaking she's a fair bit closer to Orlando, Florida. She regularly attends BrickCon in Seattle, Washington.
Thanksgiving’s around the corner, and around these parts, that means Classic-Castle‘s annual Colossal Castle Contest is well underway. There are plenty of fantastic entries, and I want to highlight a few that caught my eye!
Images for the upcoming 2014 Disney Princess line have been revealed, giving more detail into the new line of sets. As you can see, the figures are closer to the Friend’s line. I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking, because my inner-child has nothing more to say than high-pitched squeals of delight.
A rather unique approach to the tudor building, I couldn’t resist the lines and shapes David Hensel (Legonardo Davidy) created with this brilliant little cottage. The colors and angles work beautifully together.
He says it’s a warm-up for the annual contest over at Classic-Castle. If this is the warm-up I can’t wait to see the competition!
February 29, 2020. Anchorage. Knifehead. Category III.
This is the beast that took down the Gipsy Danger. This is the Kaiju that demonstrated that they were learning our defenses. This was the battle of the beginning of the end for the Jaeger program. And it is magnificent.
OliveSeon brings us this brilliant brick-built beast from Pacific Rim, in all its glory. I can’t wait to see what else she has planned!
Today’s clearly a video-heavy day. Great way to break up the day. Who can say no to Iain‘s bricks of character coming to life? When it comes to characters, though, Tommy Williamson (GeekyTom) is certainly holding his own. He keeps making BrickNerd better and better every time.
This time, though, is very special.
On this episode, we take a look into the the Lifestyles of the Brick and Famous.
Time is a funny thing: it both heals and utterly destroys. It can take away the crushing despair of a broken heart, a distant family, and right wrongs. It can carve landscapes, and level mountains. That’s pretty powerful stuff.
Built for the Castle display at Brickcon, this statue’s original purpose is lost–along with a limb, a hand, and the head has fallen to the dust. Further damage has resulted from the ongoing hostilities between the Boars and Bulls.
In all seriousness, I’ve been wanting to build a large minifigure for a while, and of course when I build it’s apparently ruined and weather-worn. And a bonus: this should survive the journey from Orlando to Seattle relatively intact!
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter that shark week is over. Or that millions of cats everywhere do housework atop a Roomba. What does matter is that the internet loved it and therefore Iain Heath (Ochre Jelly) MUST build it. It’s not like he’s done that before or anything.
And, because no cat video meme build is complete without the video, you can see Roomba-Shark-Cat in action:
While Roomba-Shark-Cat is pretty spot on with the attitude and pose of a cat in a costume, I adore the duck.
Gather round, everyone, for I have a story to tell you. Let me share with you this book by 74louloute; it tells the tale of Castle of Luneville in Lorraine, France, and how a fire tried to take the life of an old man.
Be sure to check out this brilliant build in action!
I could talk about the literary impact of the scene depicted from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. I could write about the technical pieces about the sculpting, the curvature and natural look of the build, and excellent manner Paul (Disco86) has captured just a small portion of Rivendell.
But really, just look at it:
I highly recommend looking around his photostream; for more Lord of the Rings themed builds, you can check out this gallery.
