With my latest creation in the Iron Mountain Legion theme, I wanted to add some levity. It’s a post apocalyptic military force, but I imagine their grip on historical record might be a bit lacking.
I imagine them recovering a prewar robot, and deciding to turn it into an inspirational tool, as well as a weapon. I also just thought that the idea of a robot Lincoln was hilarious, and once I thought of it, I had to build it. The name, of course, adds to the joke, Linear Neuralnet Cyborg 1 (LNC-1).
Brian (Âtin) uses microscale buildings and mountains in the background to create a fantastic forced-perspective diorama.
Don’t miss Brian’s behind-the-scenes shots showing some interesting techniques for the road in particular.
I’m back from BrickCon, and ready to unveil the only new creation I’ve built since July. I had the funky idea to build this one evening, and actually had the time to do so. I figured that the post-apocalypse building scene could use a little more levity, and what’s better than cheerleaders to bring some cheer? Of course, I had to try to build a stereotypical cheerleader vehicle, which pretty much had to be an open top jeep or a VW cabrio. Then I added the legs, to make it more interesting, as well as ridiculous.
At the behest of a friend, I brought the creation to BrickCon, and took photos of it on as many cool creations as I could manage. I didn’t anticipate the big response it got, so don’t be surprised to see some more girls of the apocalypse from me (nurses anyone?).
I’ve seen quite a few humorous uses of the ostrich head, but this robo-bird by Stuart Delahay is taking things to the next level. The backstory on MOCpages is quite hilarious as well, you should check it out.
Brian Kescenovitz (mondayn00dle) is another builder who probably has more works featured on our blog than not. What makes this creation unique is the combination of an emotionally arousing scene and backstory (yes, a Lego creation can be more than eye-candy). The rust stains on the rare Bionicle mask of the hardsuit mirrors the stains of blood and adds to the twisted setting. The hardsuit also seats a complete minifig.
Alex Eylar (Profound Whatever) recently rendered Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks in Lego, but this new development featuring zombies stole the show.
Speaking of the dead, what does it have to do with these spacemen?
This one is mine, though. It’s an addition to the Iron Mountain Legion theme that I’ve been tinkering with on and off lately. I wanted to keep with the overall style of that theme, which meant large bulky armor pieces. It also requires somewhat comic proportions, hence the tall turret.
I wanted this creation to look overtly functional. I tried to add interesting details to support that style, such as the winch and textured armor pieces. This was also the reason that there are so many vents pointing in various directions, so that it looks like it could be held in position by their thrust.
This friendly-looking zombie loves you. Naturally he loves you for your brains…but that’s what they all say.

Justin Vaughn (Mainman) uses 1X2 transparent clear plates to sculpt this beautiful frozen waterfall. My favorite part is the rocks underneath the frozen ice. The angled cliffs flanking the fall greatly enhances the visual appeal of this creation.
Kevin Murney (legorevolution) apologizes in advance for ruining your childhood with this disturbingly apocafied rendition of Toy Story. The creation features Psycho Green Car, Gas Mask Woody, and Buzzsaw Buzz. I will not say more, I think you get the point.
