Sometimes simple is better. This microscale model of Mass Effect’s SR-2 Normandy spaceship by Sydag doesn’t use many parts, but it captures the source brilliantly and is instantly recognizable.
Micah B.’s (Arkov) beastly villain is a fantastic creature. Titled the Mortal-Foe, it’s a great example of how good posing and careful parts usage can make a model come alive. There aren’t many more parts on display here than in the typical Bionicle/Hero-Factory set, and yet Micah’s fey being displays a great deal more personality and life (and death) than most official sets.
We have previously featured large airliners, but few (if any) of them built to minifig scale (Ryan McNaught’s A-380 is technically only half an airliner). Calum Tsang started designing his minifig scale Boeing 777 back in 2006, shortly after one of the real aircraft set a new long-distance record for commercial airliners. He started building in 2011 and has recently fitted new wings and engines. This dedication has paid of, because it is big and it is beautiful.
The model is a whopping 200 studs long and has a similar wing span. With that size, Calum has had to use wood to strengthen the fuselage spine, as well as a few metal struts to support it, but it’s a very nicely sculpted model. One of my favourite bits is the tail fin, with a brick-built version of the logo that LEGO use for the aircraft in recent City sets.
Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights! Tonight we’re recapping the best of Marchikoma – the yearly think-tank build month. Let’s go to the tale of the tape.
Yes you read that right, Cole vs Blaq, in the first and probably only FNF self contest – Despite my best effort, Cole Blaq’s efforts last month was jaw dropping good. And of course if you missed any Koma’s – you can see an overview of all the builds here.
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this bout by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Micro GARCs, Jacob wins the race 8-5 ! Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
This adorable presentation by Brian Rinker is based off a real piece of architectural genius–the inspiration was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Brian includes a link to the reference in his photo’s description, so check it out!
This scene by Lukasz Wiktorowicz shows a warrior training in a beautiful nightscape built entirely out of Lego. There are multiple layers to this work and they all stack together to create a well-composed scene.
