Viking Short House

I’m not sure of the historical authenticity of the build, but I can tell you for sure that Dwalin Forkbeard built a cute little viking house:

He’s done a great job with shaping the roof and adding the right amount of details on the side of the building. But what what really makes this moc great for me is the little landscaping – the irregular shape, the carefully placed plates and tiles, and the fantastically balanced fence.

Junk Trader

I must say this piece of junk by j¤nesy is fantastic:
Silk Trader

I’ve actually tried to build one before, but even 4 times as big as j¤nesy’s, I wasn’t able to recreate the distinctive elegance that he has managed to capture with this creation. The use of the old Ninja Sails is nothing short of an epic technique. But it doesn’t stop there – the little details of the rolled up silks in the boat and the fantastic rolling waters just adds the this already amazing build.

Curiosity killed the bot.

After Tyler posted an anti-frog build, A Plastic Infinity decided to show us Frogs are smarter than the average bot, with this amusing build:

ExploreBot's Demise

While it was definitely the humour that caught my eye (not to mention the cute little frog), there are actually a lot of fantastic build techniques he’s used in the bot itself. From the brilliantly illegal shoulder joint connections, to the marvelous finger connection – this bot just fantastic.

Construction SHIPs for your Mega City

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wondered how you would go about building colossal sci-fi mega cities, or mega worlds like Coruscant or Trantor ? According to Tim Goddard(Rogue Bantha) to build a Mega City, you need his Red Titan:

Red Titan 1

I’m not sure exactly how the magnets are used for construction, or if that’s a wreaking ball attachment, but if they can build such a stylish SHIP like that, they can build my city any day.

Ok Tim, where do I sign up?

Spaceballs: Lord Dark Helmet

Pretty much everyone I know loves the original Star Wars Trilogy, and by extension I assume that the same should apply for the parody version: Spaceballs. Kristi (custombricks) is one of those people and has created this fantastic  version of Lord Dark Helmet:

Lord Helmet

And if you haven’t Spaceballs, it should be available both on Amazon Prime and Netflix right now… go watch now, I’ll wait.
