Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights. Tonight we take a break from system and dive into the wonder world of Bionicle. Let’s go to the tale of the tape.
In the red corner we have Pate-keetongu and his General Killjoy:
In the gold corner we have Alexander (VBBN)) with his Pallas:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding, by way of comment, which of these Bionicle Brutes will win the battle. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Fire Trucks, Galaktek’s futuristic firetruck won 7-2. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
“All alone my pet?”
As a kid the Old Hag scared me a lot, still does to this day, but this delightful rendition of the Old Hag from Snow White by Millie McKenzie (Leda Kat) is amazingly cute and adorable:
The Old Hag is the fantastic centerpiece to the build, but I really like how she framed the build and all the details in the window, the broom and the chair.
The LEGO Group and Eurobricks have teamed up to help celebrate the release of Pete Reid’s Exo Suit with a Turtle building contest.
I decided to take my own stab at building some turtles, creating an adorable little turtle facing off with turtle inspired Exo-Suit.
Hopefully we will see a whole lot more fun Turtle creations this month.
Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights. Tonight we dive into the world of Concept Art turned into LEGO. A lot of builders will use reference photos of cars and buildings to build their models. There’s a small subset of sci-fi builders which will use Concept Art as a basis of their creations. Let’s go to the tale of the tape.
In the white corner, we have Alexander (Malydilnar) who used this concept as inspiration for his Talon fighter:
In the blue corner, we have Jake who used used this concept as inspiration for his ship:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding, by way of comment, which ship is a cooler Concept Art turned LEGO. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Exo Suits, Ilya won a close 3-2 with his BAR Exo Suit. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
While VirtuaLUG is currently the undisputed king of collabs at Brickworld, that may change soon with this rising crop of young builders…
At Brickworld 2014, the so called “ChiLUG+ImpLUG+Friends” group unveiled their Princess Bride Collaborative build, based on the classic 1987 movie. This group consisted of: Philip Bernston, Daniel Church, Casey McCoy , Ben M Merrill, Lee Muzzy, Matthew Oh, Max Pointner, Ian Spacek, and Paul Vermeesch.
As always our friends at Beyond the Brick have a great video highlight of this layout:

Inspired from the Warcraft video games, Ilia (Combee) has created this wonderful little ogre camp:
He’s done a fantastic job of capturing the visual style in the game, not an easy feat given the round nature of the tower and hut.
Toronto got hit pretty bad last year with an ice storm and destroyed a lot of Toronto’s tree cover, which took weeks to clean up all the poor trees. The only cool part was I got to see a lot of the Toronto Forestry trucks rolling around, which Isaac Mazer (Ricecracker.) was able to recreate with stunning accuracy:
This Freightliner 108SD truck is operated by the City of Toronto’s Department of Forestry, and Isaac has been able to recreate the truck’s distinctive hood – in minifig scale – by shaping an official LEGO eraser!
This truck also has a functional truck bed to dump out trees and a knuckle-boom crane to pick up trees:
Those lucky enough to go to Brickworld Chicago this year were treated to VirtuaLUG‘s story time with their incredible 300 square foot retelling of Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey.
This amazing collaborative layout tells the story of the Greek hero Odysseus and his 10 year adventure home after the battle of Troy. Feel free to take the video tour of this massive Layout, courtesy of our friends at Beyond the Brick:
VirtuaLUG of course is the mega-group that brought us Lord of the Rings (2011), Alice in Wonderland (2012) and The Wizard of Oz (2013). So it came as no surprise that they took home Brickworld’s top prize (and Master Builder to boot!):

Even among some of the best Starfighter builders around, Chris Maddison manages to stand out as he puts in this phenomenal entry into the Starfighter Telephone Game:
Combining the styling of the previous Stafighters, Chris takes it to the next level with the amazing use of the light brick inside the Galaxy Squad pod, which gives this already very alien ship that extra exotic look.
