Sinan Bitişik has lovingly crafted this beautiful drafting table. I’m not sure why but I have a thing for drafting tables. There is something about the utility and minimalistic nature of them, while at the same time, knowing the potential and creativity that may be let loose on their smooth working surface. Regardless, this model is perfect. I would love to have one.
Kosmas Santosa just built this most incredible milk carton. I have to say that it is probably the best milk carton LEGO model I’ve ever seen. It’s just so smooth. The brick-built label is spot on, not to mention that the folds and angles of the top are perfect. Nicely done.
Kosmas has been building a lot for FOODcember. You should check out his martini as well. Not sure if it is shaken or stirred but it looks awesome!
Joel Baker is the agent for this team of misfits and directly responsible for their behavior. I don’t know about you but I don’t want these guys pawing around my roof on Christmas Eve, blacklight nose or not!
I love how Joel got so much expression into each of these deer. They may only be the ‘B’ team but they have a lot of personality!
One of my favorite movies of all time is Aliens. It has everything a little boy would want: cool SHIP, fun dropships with APC, lots of action, and of course let’s not forget adorable aliens! So with the TBB’s Chibi MicroFighter contest, I was absolutely delighted to see not one, not two, but the three iconic builds from my favorite movie.
First up, we have Letranger Absurde (vitreolum) and his Chibi M77APC:
Sadly this doesn’t fit into our next build:
Angus MacLane and his Chibi UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship:
Of course if we continue with our Russian nesting vehicles, it would bring us to:
Halfbeak and the Chibi USS Sulaco:

I’m a fan of seeing new concepts in Lego creations such as a working zoetrope by Ian Spacek. The viewer rotates the cylinder and peers through the slots to see the sequence of animated images.
Here’s a lovely little structure by delayice. Besides the neat architectural details, what really strikes me about this creation is the way the building looks as if it were organically constructed over centuries of use, as each new owner added on a new bit of the structure.
Fujiia just posted this awesome bicycle. It is built using a nice minimalistic approach that really appeals to me. As they say, less is often more.
This micro winter forest, by Mel Finelli, is a thing of beauty. It’s amazing that such a small build can convey so much but it does. Just looking at this scene brings back memories of bright winter nights and the peaceful serenity when everything is covered in a blanket of undisturbed snow.
Jin Kei has been working on a tribute to Salvador Dali for some time now. I don’t know if he is finished but this herd of stilt-walking, steampunk elephants was too good not to post.
I can’t imagine how fragile they are or how he got them all balanced. That alone is quite the feat. But technical aspects aside, these creatures are beautiful. I’d love to see them in person as I’m sure they are even more impressive. Make sure you take the time to look at the detail pictures in his photostream. It’s definitely worth it.
