There have certainly been no shortage of LEGO recreations of the loveable Minions from the Dispicable Me movies, but Carlos Méndez takes it one step further with this perfect mashup of Minions with the popular video game series Assassin’s Creed:
While we await the summer release of the Minions’ first spin-off movie, I look forward to seeing other mashups involving these
possibly cannabilistic banana-loving creatures!
Skid-steer loaders are very versatile pieces of construction equipment, by virtue of their many different attachments such as blades, cutters, trenchers and snow blowers.
This brilliant little model by Sinan Bitişik does not include any zombies, but looking at the gnarly attachment to its front, evidently intended for cutting asphalt, I could not help but think of an alternative use.
Tim Goddard (Roguebantha) has been on something of a cosmic constabulary kick lately, bringing forth a number of glorious models from that best-of-the-80’s LEGO theme, Space Police. So far he’s got a large landing craft, a nifty little runabout, some smaller vehicles and drones, and my favorite, the quintessential icon of the omnipresent State, a watchtower. The models have all been given a healthy dose of modern building techniques, while still incorporating the classic aesthetic. Updating old themes like this is a popular trend these days, but as long as they’re this well done, I don’t mind. Here’s a gallery of all Tim’s cool Space Police models.

I saw Paul Hetherington‘s modern townhouse at Brickcon last year and was immediately impressed by the elegant artistic style of the creation. There is a fully detailed interior along with working light fixures. Take a look at more photos on Flickr to see different angles of the building, each offering a new visual aesthetic.
Hello Dear Friends!
I recently found a camera and was able to sneak some time to shoot a video. Check it out!
If you aren’t into video, you can read my normal write-up below.
Hot on the heels of his Ultraman build that we blogged last week, umamen brings us this amazing 8″ tall Star Wars stormtrooper figurine. The detailing and devious construction of the helmet alone are enough for me, but apparently this thing is even poseable too (…well, to some extent).
At this point true Star Wars fans can argue about which stormtrooper variation this is, or whether that’s Han or Luke under the helmet. Boring conversation anyway, because here’s a second dose of Star Wars LEGO goodness for you – a Chibi Micro Fighter version of the LAAT from the Clone Wars, by Yxxn. It’s adorable!
Wow, and it isn’t even May 4th yet…
Even though this piece – entitled “Youth” – is a character build, the distinctive lanky style of it’s creator (Australian mecha builder Aaron Williams) is still recognizable. All that’s missing is a skateboard and a bunch of back-talk!
