Bruce Lowell (bruceywan) has taken one of the most fun old Adventurer’s sets, 5935 Island Hopper, and put his own skilled hands to recreating it for the MOCPages MocAtholon competition. The Island Hopper was always a favorite of mine in the final Adventurers setting, and Bruce’s version is all decked out with more advanced building Continue reading →
LEGO Adventurers models on The Brothers Brick
LEGO Adventurers was a theme that LEGO first released in 1999 and discontinued in 2003. Starring explorers and archaeologists in far-flung locations like Egypt and Tibet, the theme had many similarities to the later licensed LEGO Indiana Jones theme. Thanks to its unique characters and comparative longevity for an original LEGO theme, the theme remains popular with LEGO builders to this day.
We may have missed our opportunity to blog this when Alex Sandek first posted it a few weeks ago, but this temple is too good to stay lost. The overhanging rocks and waterfall are a creative way of masking the vignette base, and the white temple atop the dark tan crags is beautiful in its Continue reading →
Apparently Andrew Lee (onosendai2600) has access to some of the new Pharaohs Quest sets. In his own words he is “too cheap to buy the pyramid set and don’t want a magnet fig. So this happens.” The whole Anubis figure is excellent but I’m especially enamored of the half-altered feet hinting at a transition from Continue reading →
Peter Shutter shows us the pharaoh’s dilemma. . Check out more great scenes such as this Star Wars spoof on Peter’s Flickr set.
We’ve all seen some pretty good stop-motion animations with Lego, but the method is not without its limitations. Tyler Clites and Jordan Schwartz recently experimented with making short clips of live action Lego films featuring their Oasis Mech and Anubis Statues respectively. You can read more about each creator’s thoughts by following the links below Continue reading →
I’m not sure how long Amacher Sylvain (CaptainSmog) has been posting his LEGO models but his work is new to me. Which is neat as he’s made some fantastic steampunk creations that I’d never seen before. Found via Klocki.
I’ve been having nostalgic interest in old and short-lived themes, so it was nice to see this this Islander chief on his gorilla steed. I especially like how Ed captures the beefiness of the arms and the curve of the knuckles on the gorilla. Sorry for the image quality, it’s to do with my linking, Continue reading →
The minifig in this little dio by Evildead may want to keep running, but I have a dog sitting next to me here who’s willing to take on that two-horned beast. No, seriously! He barks at them when they come on TV. Anyway, I think this is the first brick-built rhino that I’ve seen. It’s Continue reading →
For once the answer is yes. Ronald Vallenduuk (Duq) has recently added a couple of sets of instructions to Flickr and kindly showed me how to get LPub working again. I actually reverse engineered the seat gondola many years back after seeing a picture of it and coveting it so it’s great to see Ronald Continue reading →
Athos just posted pictures of his chateau, and it’s rather striking. The contrast of the walls really jumped out at me. You also have to check out the detailed interior.
Mike Psiaki continues to churn out great additions to his Jurassic Park layout. His latest is actually inspired by 5935 Island Hopper, from the Adventurers “Dino Island” series. Here’s Mike’s current lineup of terrible lizards:
In a similar attempt to distract from the ongoing drama, here’s Piglet‘s CSS Turtle: Requisite crew shot:
If you’re not a frequent visitor of MOCpages, then you’re missing out on a fun game called MOCtag invented by Shannon Young. Basically, a builder makes a creation to depict part of a story, then he tags another builder to continue the story with another creation. The game is currently in its fifth installment, with Continue reading →
In response to the animals cave racing contest, SlyOwl creates a scene of cave racing in the jungle where animals take part in the precarious game.
Alan Saunders illustrates the moments after Antarctic explorer Lawrence Oates spoke his famous last words. I love the miniature camp in the background.
