Meet Timmy. He’s your average TFOL. He just finished building his first Vic Viper, and he can’t wait to post it online! Just imagine all the comments and faves his peers will heap upon him! Maybe, just maybe, his MOC will get featured on The Bloomers Brick. Then he will become famous like Namman B. and Legoballin’, and get even more comments and faves! And what could possibly be more important than comments and faves?
Don’t be like Timmy, there is more in life than comments and faves.

Andrew Lee shows us how ingenious parts usage is to be done. I certainly would have never looked at forks and hand-mixers and thought, “Self, I should build the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland!”
The Starfighter Telephone Game has been running for coming up on 4 years this March. With 4 rounds in the works, and a 5th in the planning stages there have been 48 fighters built by builders spread across the globe. The 48th fighter built is this glorious variant by Stijn (Red Spacecat). Typically as the game progresses the fighters get larger and larger. Stijn decided to try something different and started his team off with a rather large craft. The snails paced excitement of the game is always fun to watch, but seeing this fighter has got me really excited to see this round progress.
Considering this car is built on a 4×7 stud footprint and is still instantly recognizable is quite the feat. I am not even a huge car guy and I immediately knew what it was. But should we expect much else from Raphy Granas?
Jonas (Legopard) says that this is a tablescrap constructed out of an assortment of LEGO bricks done at the Bricking Bavaria event. Impressive improvisation skills to say the least.
This ladies and gentlemen is a Vic Viper. Need I say more?
Well I suppose I should at least add that this masterpiece was built by Nate Decastro.
That is a proper job Nate!

This year’s NnoVVember seems to have rolled in with more discussion and politics than most years…and let’s be honest there always tends to be a fair amount of that anyway. But when you boil it down, this month is all about having fun and building some spaceships. And this my friends is a sexy example. Pascal is well known for the minimalist artistic style he puts into his builds, and that is exactly why I appreciate his work so much. Pascal continuously proves that you do not need an incredibly complex creation and abundant parts to create something unique, well designed and interesting.
His epic photographic skills certainly helps as well.
Happy building NnoVVemberites!
Cover photos have once again been updated on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
For Facebook I have chosen this shot by Stefan Schindler because not only was it beautifully composed, but well, it seemed fitting for NnoVVember.
For Twitter, this wonderful shot by Tobias Munzert is beautifully composed as well, and laid out perfectly for Twitter.
Continued thanks to those that are submitting images to the TBB Cover Photos flickr group. I have to say that I am appreciating the quality images that are being submitted.
I am sure Andrew can provide some translation as to what is actually going on in these cityscapes by 62778grenouille. But really I think the images can speak for themselves.
EDIT (AB): The photo description in Japanese just notes that the train is a mag-lev, and that the builder used LED light sticks from Ikea for the lighting effects.
