Galaktek has a long-running series of animals piloting mecha, but this penguin themed one might be my favorite so far. Even in robot form this penguin can’t fly, but who cares about that when you can glide along the ice with this level of panache?
Mark Stafford does it again with this killer Vic Viper. The use of the train front is brilliant as is using the brick seperator for the tail. You also have to love those intakes. Really there is too much awesome here to list. It’s just a sweet, sweet ship.
I love this vintage telphone by Konslon. The elegant lines of the phone and the muted sepia tones really make for a nice presentation. The tires really work nicely on the handset as well.
We usually focus directly on LEGO models that people have created, but I always enjoy seeing fans use LEGO as the subject for their photography skills as well. Flickr user Young_Design has been creating a series of photographs which I love, featuring minifigs in gorgeous settings with great lighting. A good eye, a nice macro lens, and a little photoshopping skill can bring a viewer right into a minifig’s compelling world.
Traditional architecture with right angles and straight walls are commonplace in LEGO cities, since the brick naturally lends itself to that style. Less common are modern buildings with curving walls, but flickr user lisqr manages quite well here with the clever implementation of curved train tracks to set the structure for this wavy edifice.
This crazy cool Vic Viper version by Rancorbait is chock full of sweet angles and great color blocking. The builder deftly applies some of the new angular slopes LEGO’s been producing in recent years, and the result is spectacular. I particularly love the clever use of this piece down the front of each side, which is so well integrated that I almost didn’t notice it. Overall, this ship looks like a combination of something from Tron: Legacy and LEGO’s own classic Blacktron theme.
I love the brightness of this rover. The white highlights really seem to jump out and I love the steering mechanism! Using the pistons makes for a really smooth turn. Very nicely done, David!
This last weekend in Seoul, the LEGO fan group Brickinside put on an incredible display! One creation in particular really jumped out at me. Built by Hayarobie, this vintage record player is full of awesome details. I especially love the transistors and other electronic wizardry going on there.
Tim Inman, AKA RabidNovaRacer, is off to the races with this sleek race car. I love the angles and curves that he was able to achieve on this beauty. It’s definitely full of win and raring to go!
