Gil is churning out great builds, one after the other, in the current Iron Builder challenge. This set of medical equipement is disturbingly life-like. Those pills are especially well made. It makes me want to eat my apple a day and keep the doctor away!
Hacim Bricks says he felt like building a purple flower. So he did. I feel like posting a purple flower. So I am. It’s really nicely done and well presented.
This one tricked me. Gilcelio built this very realistic padlock and hasp, put it on a lovely brick-built chest, and I didn’t realize it was LEGO until after I clicked on it. Very impressive. I love realistic, full-size recreations of everyday objects.
This antique telephone by Lee Young (edguy20) captures the ornate decorations that adorned such devices back in the day. However, it’s still quite a ways from the bending technology of the modern phone.
Andrew Lee created this terrific word sculpture, which epitomizes the brick experience for many of us fans.
Adam Dodge traverses the intersection of awesome LEGO model and useful real-world object with this pair of Doctor Who-inspired bookends. I suspect many a Whovian will be drooling over Adam’s excellent creation.
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” This oft-quoted nugget from Arthur C. Clarke is perfectly embodied in this otherworldly model by Nick V. (Brickthing). It’s not often that I’m blown away by the aesthetics of a spacecraft, but Nick is one of the best builders in the community, and has been tearing it up of late. This model, an alien “deity” worshipped by ancient humanity, à la Stargate, is a study in excellence.
To avoid making every other post here on Brothers Brick one of Nick’s new models, I’m also going to point out this stunning bonsai tree.
It comes as no surprise that the dynamic duo Sean and Steph Mayo (Siercon and Coral) have yet again produced another stunning model that nudges the boundaries of building possibilities a little further out. The Intelligence, as this model is named, is inspired by the classic pin-art toy, and seems to be straight from the pages of a surrealism guidebook.
Don’t worry if you don’t know what a Schwibbogen is – I didn’t either. As builder Robert H. kindly explains, it’s a type of traditional German Christmas decoration in the form of an ornate candle holder. Robert’s full-size LEGO Schwibbogen is modeled after a famous one, and depicts artisans at work.
