Flickr user bobalexander! has not only built a car with a very non-LEGO shape, but he has done so in a very tricky colour. Even with the limited parts availability of Maersk blue, the iconic shape and colouring of this classic racer are perfectly captured. We had previously featured Malte Dorowski’s 917, and it is Continue reading →
Everything LEGO on The Brothers Brick

Sometimes relatively simple scenes can provide the most opportunity for showing terrific quality. Take, for instance, this beautiful diorama of the Roman invasion of Britain by James Pegrum (peggyjdb) which is really just a bit of shoreline with some soldiers. I’ve seen the trans-blue 1×1 round plates used as water many times, but James has Continue reading →
I thought the adorable love llamas we blogged a couple weeks ago looked a bit like alpacas, but who am I to split the hairs of a South American camelid? Still, this lovely llama by Delta (itself inspired by delayice’s pair) has a certain fuzz factor thanks to the studs-out construction that I can appreciate.
We are still far removed from the point where LEGO robots can build copies of themselves, but the ‘Fabrik Mosaïque’ built by minkowsky shows an interesting first step. The factory building itself is nice, but when I first saw it, it didn’t strike me as all that remarkable. I’m glad I took a closer look, Continue reading →

This hive mind behemoth is Zane Houston‘s largest mech and features the builder’s “chunky” style of combining large distinct shapes to make the creation. Those red eyes are a distinctive feature along with the smooth-flowing tan armor plates.
Last week I was taken to task by a reader who complained that this blog-hole is prejudiced against Bionicle builders, using incendiary rhetoric like “nip around” and “Mocists”. Although I was quick to dismiss this reader as a disenfranchised malcontent, after a little research I’m forced to agree that we can do a little better Continue reading →
I can’t let the weekend slip by without something to appeal to the Kastle-heads out there and this one is just the way you like it..fresh out of the creative oven. We’re nearing the midpoint of 2013 and already K.Kreations (which sounds horribly like a Kardashian enterprise), has appeared three times on this rag-tag fugitive Continue reading →
Does this count as a mosaic? Regardless, this creation by diegoboy is flippin’ rad! I totally have revolution909 in my head now…and that is a good thing.
The current Iron Builder throw-down between Maddison and Lowell has been nothing short of spectacular and my favorite of the series to date. Although there have been many outstanding competitions in the past, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen two opponents that were so evenly matched in both style and productivity. While I’m not surprised Continue reading →
Canadian John V (Lemelisk) makes his first appearance on this blog of brothers with his “Adnavik” tug boat. Named after a village on the Labrador coast, this Canadian Forces Arctic Vessel (CFAV) is accurate to its real world counterpart, with many playable features that would make a great official set.
TBB recognizes the importance of family on this day dedicated to mothers everywhere. Lego Admiral has been hard at work building up his force of Warhammer 40K futuristic killing machines and he has thoughtfully gathered them all together for a group-shot. The Valkyrie Assault Carrier hovers maternally above the tribe, and from left to right: Continue reading →
Being almost at the half way point of the R-Type & Beyond starfighter build challenge, we have seen a very nice assortment of brilliant builds of all sizes shapes and colours. Here is a quick round up of my favourites so far. Shannon Ocean brings his retro space style with this rockin’ entry. Pasukaru76 has Continue reading →
LegoMarat brings you some remote-controlled action tonight with his rendition of an Illinois Department of Transportation International 4400 tow truck. Not content to merely nail the shaping for the exterior, he also packed in a working front and rear suspension, opening doors, 6 motors, 3 IR receivers, and a battery box to bring it all Continue reading →
