The 6th annual Creations for Charity fundraiser is almost over, and your help is needed to purchase the creations that Lego fans from across the world have donated to sell and raise money for the kids. There are many great items still for sale as you can see below. Visit the store to see more.
As always, 100% of the net income will be spent on Lego that will be donated to underprivileged children in multiple parts of the world. Please support the builders who have donated creations to the cause.
This gingerbread house by Koen (Swan Dutchman) looks beautiful and delicious. The icing swirls on the front of the house is truly inspired.
LEGO has announced the newest addition to their Creator line: 10246 Detective’s Office. The new set clocks in at 2,262 pieces, with a US price tag of $159.99. It hits shelves in January 2015. You can read the press release after the cut.
This watchful owl, by Mihai Marius Mihu, looks poised to fly off and tell its master of your approach. Proceed with caution!
The owl is nicely done but the angles on that dead tree? Very elegant.
Ryan Hauge, of BrickWarriors, just posted this fun little scene of an assassin training their apprentice. The timbered roof is cool and the crazy green flames in the fire make me smile, but the archways over the doors and fireplace really make this standout. I also have to mention that four-poster bed. The finials on the bedposts? BrickWarriors’ Magic Wands. Nice touch.
Ryan told me that this is a scene from his new book, now available on Amazon, also called “Riddle of Regicide (Pentavia Book 1)“.
This Lego MarioKart collaborative display by 74louloute, 6kyubi6 and fujiia features instantly recognizable characters and items from the game. You can see details of the racers by visiting each builder’s galleries on Flickr. Beware the blue shell!
Galaktek has a long-running series of animals piloting mecha, but this penguin themed one might be my favorite so far. Even in robot form this penguin can’t fly, but who cares about that when you can glide along the ice with this level of panache?
Mark Stafford does it again with this killer Vic Viper. The use of the train front is brilliant as is using the brick seperator for the tail. You also have to love those intakes. Really there is too much awesome here to list. It’s just a sweet, sweet ship.
I love this vintage telphone by Konslon. The elegant lines of the phone and the muted sepia tones really make for a nice presentation. The tires really work nicely on the handset as well.
