You’d probably expect a lot of the posts on a LEGO blog like The Brothers Brick to be about LEGO, and you’d be right. If you’re browsing this page, you might want to consider narrowing what you’re looking for by checking out categories like “Space” and “Castle.” We’re sure there’s something here that’ll fascinate and amaze you.

It’s all child’s play

There are so many things I adore about this little scene. You’ve got the nostalgia factor, because I absoultely played hopscotch at recess as a little girl. Then you look at the detailing on the pavement, and your eye should wander to the absolutely brilliant bicycles for the kids.

That bunny is just adorable. Michael Jasper, well done.

You can never have too many Canadarms

Jason Corlett has just shared this beefy Overseer mech, featuring arms large and small for any industrial work you might need.

Overseer Assault Mech (No Head)

While I’m partial to the headless variant shown above, Jason has whipped up a number of different designs to show what the mech looks like with a wide variety of heads.

Drafting Table – a Study in Creativity

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.

Don’t Cry Over Spilt Milk

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.

Got Milk?

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!

Merry Chrashmas from Santa’s B-Team!

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!

Chibi Aliens MicroFighters Contest entries

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:

There’s still plenty of time to enter to build your favorite movie/TV/lego set vehicle in chibi-microfighter form for a chance to win some great prizes!
