The Seattle in me must be coming out in full force with today’s mid-90s in Orlando, because let me tell you how wonderful this apartment unit situated firmly on Ice Planet looks.

Recently, some of us here at TBB participated in a live unveiling of the Iron Builder piece, which Sean and Steph Mayo (Siercon and Coral), along with Tyler (Legohaulic) and Michaela Clites (littlehaulic), are using for their competition.
All of the entries have been fantastic–and this one is particularly well timed. Also, it made me laugh. These might be the only Peeps I actually like.
Happy Easter, everyone!
This adorable presentation by Brian Rinker is based off a real piece of architectural genius–the inspiration was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Brian includes a link to the reference in his photo’s description, so check it out!
You know those snapshots that just bring you to a time in your life? Where you remember the defining moments, those poignant memories that make you smile. For me, this particular MOC reminds me of the first time I saw fireflies, in Tuscany, amid the vineyards. They were the only light along the path.
Carson Hart‘s rendition of an Italian Tuscan villa captures the bright colors and classic look, while forced perspective in the background shows off the rolling hills of vineyards. I imagine the other part of this villa may or may not include a winery that filled that bottle on the table.
I am, admittedly, not terribly into racing, and the only reason I pay attention is to avoid Daytona in February. I do, however, have a deep appreciation for a beautiful car.

The family photo is just as gorgeous:
As you may or may not have heard, Ellen Degeneres hosted the Academy Awards on Sunday, March 2. In true Oscars style, Ellen made this her entertaining with funny quips, freaking out the pizza boy, and posting a “selfie”.
Which later crashed twitter.
Our erstwhile pop-culture enthusiast Iain Heath has, of course, memorialized this moment in brick for each and every one of you to enjoy.
How many of you saw the LEGO movie? All of you? Excellent. Did you hear they’re doing a sequel, due in 2017? That’s pretty fantastic news to me. I’d love to go back to that world.
Art of the Title gives a really insightful walk-through of the process creating the end-credits, with all of those excellent micro-scale worlds.

Which of the end-credit builds was your favorite?
