If Luke Watkins Hutchinson is associated with the gritty side of castle, then César Soares (Cesbrick) represents the vibrant side of medieval architecture. Check out his latest masterpiece called BlueWater Castle and see more photos of the creation of Flickr.
I can’t think of a more prominent Starfighter builder than Nick Trotta (tardisblue), he has possibly the highest blog rate of any builder I can think of… and Nick’s latest build does not disappoint, based on Geoffrey Ernault’s concept art, he gives us another mind blowing creation:
What really sets Nick apart (aside form the clearly impressive creation), is his patience and iteration on his builds, behind the scenes he works and reworks the build until it hits this unbelievably impressive state. Don’t believe me? Check out the behind work in progress shots:
…apologies, but Skeletor’s revival on Robot Chicken is so complete at this point that I can’t even remember his catchphrase from the original Masters of the Universe show any more. But I do remember that he had an evil arch-nemesis called He-Man. And now Kevin Ryhal has crafted these erstwhile Eternial enemies in LEGO, resulting in what look like perfect replacements for my long-lost MOTU action figures:
Wolverine and his claws, for some reason is a very popular Iron Builder Subject. I’m not sure why, maybe he’s the rough and tumble guy we all love, or more likely we all made the SNIKT! sounds as kids with knives in our hands …
And in true Iron Builder form Letranger Absurde (vitreolum) brings us another iconic Wolverine build:
In particular the hair is masterfully done, particularly the iconic sideburns and pointy tips.
Danish builder Lasse Vestergård has created this gigantic microscale map of Denmark, featuring tiny versions of many of its landmarks. Not as much Viking stuff as I’d expected – but they sure have a lot of cathedrals! And of course, LEGOLAND Billund is in there too – can you locate it?
Those who went to Brickworld in Chicago and Tampa last year probably remember this crazy cuboid contraption by Tyler (Legohaulic). Built using an abundance of Technic elements and flex tubing, this creation features conveyor belts that lift ball bearings and lets them drop through one of 4 spiraling and twisting tracks. Check out the masterfully produced video to see it in action.
Even though the fish in this koi pond by Chris Maddison are inanimate, this creation is still pleasant to look at with its articulate placement of elements within two concentric circles.
At the risk of encouraging followers of this peculiar and completely arbitrary new tradition on this 14th of March… Feast your eyes upon this lovely pie, that Bill Ward has built for the occasion. Looks almost good enough to eat.
Of course, this version of Pi day is a somewhat US-centric holiday. Our readers from Europe and other parts of the world will have to wait until the 3rd of Duodecember to celebrate their version – which means they’re in for a wait that’s as long as the digits of Pi itself!
Well, guess it’s time √ -1 23 Σ Π…
It’s been a rough winter all around, though I am glad most of our snowy adventures do not involve storming a tall tower. Isaac S (soccersnyderi)’s little build is quite clever, and I do appreciate some of the techniques he used here. It definitely avoids being a boring tower, and I like the cold feel of the whole build.
