Tyler Sky has concocted the cutest little starfighter. I love the compact, nearly “chibi”, feel of this one. The tread-wrapped engines and transparent cockpit are just icing on the cake.
Remember how I suggested that you should take a picture of your pug with your LEGO Exo Suit? Well, that is now TOTALLY AN ACTUAL THING!
Where there’s a meme, a LEGO version by our own dear Iain is not far behind! Here’s a micro-LEGO Mr. Oliver Twist the Pug with a micro-LEGO LEGO Exo Suit! So meta…
Cooper‘s adorable pug Quatchi takes a taste of the Exo Suit’s Communication Link.
Keep those pug + Exo Suit photos coming, dear readers! For those with a LEGO Exo Suit set, all you need is a pug. Frustratingly, pugs may be back ordered.
Proving that a LEGO model doesn’t have to be a spaceship in order to be totally swooshable, Dutch builder Red Spacecat has created the AV-24B Seahawk, an imaginary modern military VTOL gunship inspired by the AV-8B Harrier II jump-jet and AH-64 Apache helicopter.
As well as featuring the usual elegant lines and stud-free surfaces of his other builds, this one is also fully configurable and comes with all manner of interchangeable armaments, making for one fun toy!
And the attention to detail with stickering practically borders on the obsessive! It’s enough to make the model airplane builder in me salivate…
I grew up reading the Redwall series, and despite the fact that the books didn’t vary much in plot (usually something to do with defending the Abbey, or rescuing the youngsters from some nefarious evildoers) the books still hold a special, nostalgia-tinged place in my heart.
Fresh from his Friday Night Fight’s victory, Jonas (LEGOLIZE IT MAN) is back with this snow bound Mecha:
While the Mech itself is fantastic with its lovely colours and stickering, what really sets this apart for me is the addition of the beautiful micro trucks and outpost. I feel cold just looking at it.
Tyler Halliwell is best known to our regular readers as a creator of amazing LEGO busts. So his latest work – depicting the Monkey King of Chinese mythology – is an ambitious departure in terms of its size and construction. We think you’ll agree that the attention to detail and the naturalness of this figure’s clothing and facial expression are completely mind-blowing!
We journeyed for several months across the Asian subcontinent, rescuing helpless villagers from all manner of demons along the way, to visit the mountain in which Tyler has been imprisoned for the past 500 years, so we could find out more about this creation…
BB: So how many hours and how many bricks went into this creation?
TH: That’s tough to estimate, but probably about 100 hours over the past two months, with most of it coming into shape in the past two weeks. There’s less pieces than you’d think, as it’s mostly hollow but for a technic frame. So if I had to guess, I would say around 1500 bricks.
BB: What inspired you to choose the Monkey King as the subject of your latest LEGO sculpture?
No Starch Press, known as the purveyors of many LEGO books written by LEGO fans, recently sent me a copy of their latest book exploring our favorite hobby, The LEGO Neighborhood Book. Written by brothers Brian and Jason Lyles, it explores the City Modular standard through pre-built creations, architectural techniques, and model instructions. The 204-page book is 8″x8″ with a high-quality soft cover, and the glossy pages with great color representation we’ve come to expect from books about LEGO.
Letranger Absurde combines lots of homy details with excellent landscaping in this little scene that evokes an underground tavern. The One Ring and two sai accessories as the handle and ironwork on the door are a really great parts usage.
The characters seem to literally fly out of the page at you! I particularly like that this cover has given Paul the opportunity to use some lovely ultra-rare turquoise colored bricks, for the Thompson Twins’ chemically enhanced beards.
Flickr user SuckMyBrick has created these wonderful brick versions of characters from 10 classic movies. Can you guess all 10? Post your guesses in the comments!
