I don’t know why, but I’ve been on a real dark-bley building kick lately. That means I seem to just keep adding creations to the Iron Mountain Legion’s arsenal, which is starting to turn into a largish group. This time, it’s another dual-rotored helicopter. I just love this configuration, even if the blades don’t mesh. Continue reading →
LEGO ApocaLEGO models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
Zombie hordes, nuclear annihilation, rising sea levels, the monkeypox — the future doesn’t look too bright for all those smiling LEGO minifigs. But survivors abound in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, entrenched in well-guarded camps or on the road in crazy armored contraptions. Check out all these post-apoc models to see that there is indeed hope for LEGO humanity after all…
Niek Geurts built an interpretation of a post-apocalyptic scene that’s different than most for two obvious features. The first feature is the diagonal road, which breaks up the squareness of the diorama. The second feature involves the abundant overgrowth of plant life, which adds a nice color contrast to the classic rubble colors. There’s many Continue reading →
Working in a theme requires walking a fine line. Repetition of forms and thematic elements is necessary to tie all the creations together, but it’s easy to go overboard and be duplicative. I’m not sure whether I found the right balance with my new tank or not. You can see it below with its big Continue reading →
For those builders of post-apoc, military, or realist city, here’s a technique shown on a creation by Marin Stipkovic that shows a nice effect of building decay. The multi-shades of plates mimics the exposed bricks while the gray simulates broken concrete. Looks useful!
Zombie Apocafest 2009 has come and gone. The undead have been blown up, shot up, and mulched to oblivion. The humans stand victorious among the ruins of their civilization. Fortunately, that civilization was, by good fortune, built from LEGO, and it can be rebuilt, brick by little plastic brick. Check out the full gallery of Continue reading →
Why yes, that is a BrickArms Cricket Bat and M1 Carbine. Thanks to the generous folks at BrickArms, we’ll be giving away a bunch of these to those of you who contribute to Zombie Apocafest 2009 at BrickCon 2009 later this week. Each Zombie Defense Pack will include a prototype cricket bat and M1 carbine, Continue reading →
The same applies to this creation, from Jonathon Derksen. An entry for the 23rd Challenge over at LUGNuts, the red truck is quite unassuming: But have a look inside and see why you want this truck on YOUR side during the Zombie Apocalypse.
With exactly one month until BrickCon, we’re teaming up with LUGNuts for their 23rd build challenge, Zombie Apocalypse Killfest ’09. Naturally, we’re hoping that those of you who build something for this challenge will also bring it for the Zombie Apocafest 2009 collaborative display at BrickCon. As with other LUGNuts challenges, this is sure to Continue reading →
I’m not entirely sure why there’s so much advanced technology in evidence throughout ApocaLEGO creations. After all, haven’t we learned that even apostrophes are susceptible to nuclear attack? Maybe it’s because advanced technology places the apocalypse somewhere in the distant future, safely beyond our lifetimes. Or it could be that it’s just cool, like this Continue reading →
This unnamed creation by Tac is pretty spiffy. I love the tank, but that cyborg spider thing is the topping on the cake. Thanks to Chase for the tip!
Well, everything about it changes. That’s the same thing, right? Geoff Herndon built it, but he was inspired by вrickart!san.
With BrickCon coming, I’m sure many are interested in creating vehicles for the Zombie Apocalypse display. If you like what we’ve featured in the past, you should check out Jordan Neves‘ article on how to make your own unique and original apocafied vehicle. By the way, I recommend Jordan’s blog as a supplement to foster Continue reading →
Nick Crocco (Steam Pirate) is taking the apocafication of official LEGO sets to great heights. An armored city bus emerges from 7641 City Corner. Nick replaces the stickers on the truck in 7733 Truck & Forklift with Space Police III stickers of the same underlying design. I think it’s awesome that the LEGO designers took Continue reading →
I’ve been talking with some friends lately about building a joint post-apocalyptic diorama. I started thinking about various factions that could do battle in the wastelands, and came up with several ideas. One was the Iron Mountain Legion. The Iron Mountain Legion is intended to be the remnants or descendants of an elite military unit Continue reading →
Mysterious viruses and radiation exposure aren’t the only ways to start a zombie outbreak. Muffinmanifestation suggests that what we’re pouring into our lakes and streams might have a little something to do with the coming zombie onslaught. With the outbreak underway, the soldiers who discovered Ground Zero try to make it back to base.
