Leave it to Pascal (Pasukaru76) to see Bioshock when someone says Ma.K. (a popular mecha style with a unique visual characteristics). This Big-Daddy inspired mech is uuber cool, and is even accompanied by a miniature mechanized Little Sister.
Maktoberfest is well underway and this diorama by Kosmas Santosa really takes it up a notch! Lots of people build cool Mechs, awesome spaceships and whatnot but it really makes a build something special when the creator builds their creation into some sort of context. This one really shines. I love the vintage look of the workshop, the realistic-looking clutter and the plethora of tools laying about. The scene is awesome and the Gorilla Mech is the icing on the cake.
The sixth annual Creations for Charity sale starts today! From now until the end of November, you can buy a custom creation to help raise money to buy Lego sets for underprivileged children. These creations are all built and donated by the fans, and there’s more to come throughout the sale. Anyone can donate a creation before November 15th by visiting creationsforcharity.org and submitting a donations form. Take a look at some of the creations for sale so far:
Built for the MOC Olympics contest in a round focused on human evolution, Deus Otiosus created this scene depicting one of our forebears about to become a cat’s lunch. The sculpture and posing of both characters is perfect. And as an added bonus, you can even enjoy this build from all angles thanks to a handy spinning animated version.
The unexpected star of the show is this twistedly twee whaling ship, chasing the last of the pygmy whales across the cold ocean.
On the other end of the grey spectrum is this sleek mech, a study in clean design and smooth lines, every inch exuding brutal intent.
Serbian builder Milan (Ultimate-Design Bricks) wanted to create a build that combined his passions for bikes and camping. So when he discovered artist Kevin Cyr’s Camper Tricycle project, he knew that was what he wanted to recreate.
Milan’s model is packed with details, and he provides a full breakdown on his website. The tricycle features front and back suspension, rear differential, 180 degree steering, working pedals and chain link drive. The camper has working doors, a retractable sunshade and a plethora of storage areas and personal effects.
Camper tricycles totally need to become a real thing! Oh wait, hills…
It’s not the first time Sauron’s mighty tower has been blogged here, and it probably won’t be our last. But this latest version is bite sized and amazing:
Built for MocOlympics on MOCpages by Space Cadet Ian Spacek. Ian has integrated lighting to make the eye and lava flow have an eerie malevolent glow adding real atmosphere to the build. I just love how all the orange glows reflect off the bottom of the tower, and of course the eye!
In a dusty future where spacecraft have bubble canopies, Rod Gillies’ (2 much caffeine) spacemen look rather cheery with their small outpost. Note the detail of the way the structures are placed on pylons above the sand.
David Hensel (Legonardo Davidy) is one of the best LEGO builders in the community at present, and his wide diversity of building themes is one of the proofs. Traditionally a castle guy, David can crank out some mean spacecraft when he wants to, such as this lovely chunk of starfighter.
If you’re a fan of fantasy and/or talking rodents, then there’s so much to love about David Petersen’s world of Mouse Guard. This groundbreaking and expansive comic book series, with its rich cast of characters and detailed world, has already been turned into a roleplaying game, and now even rumors of a movie version abound.
Canadian builder Paul Hetherington unveiled this enormous homage to Mouse Guard at BrickCon last week, and promptly won “Best in Show” for his efforts.
Paul is well known for his epic minifig based dioramas such as the Fabuland Fun Fair and Joker’s Funhouse. So I’m personally rather excited by his recent diversion into the weird little world of brick-built characters! It was great to see both his Mouse Guard and Tintin builds in the flesh last week.
And if just one LEGO Mouse Guard creation is not enough to satisfy you, Seattle’s ArchLUG is planning a series of Mouse Guard themed builds for Emerald City Comic Con next March, so watch out for that!
