Many of you may have missed it, but it was hard to miss in the Netherlands, my home country: since yesterday we have a new king and queen: King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima (yes, that is the name given to her by her parents). This momentous occasion prompted Paul Toxopeus (P@u! +ox) to build these wonderful portraits.
Considering the limits of the colour palette, these are surprisingly recognisable. Hail to the new King!
Nick Barrett built a Lego version of a local sculpture in Newbury, Berkshire, UK. All the hinges, SNOT, and single stud connections must make this a fragile model, but at least it very well mimics the source.
“What’s this fine looking man doing on the front page of The Brothers Brick?” you say. “He doesn’t look like Lego!” Well, no, Bruce Lowell isn’t made of Lego, though we do suspect liquified ABS runs in his veins. His accoutrements are, however, made of Lego. Look closely, and you’ll see that the tie, tie clip, boutonniere, cuff links, belt, and even pocket square are all one-hundred percent brick. Bruce has pioneered an excellent way to show off your inner geek and look dashing doing it.

While I’m obligated every time I highlight graffiti to say that I don’t condone vandalism, I love to see great street art. This photo by clockity shows the artist’s progress as he squeezes Wolverine in between some larger pieces.
Have any of our readers in Brighton seen this in person? Know who the artist is?
If you are familiar with Mike Yoder at all, then you know that he not only builds a mean LEGO spaceship, but he is also a gifted painter. Well Mike certainly has proven both of these points with his latest project…an acrylic on canvas painting of his Calamity Jane starship.
I don’t recall a spaceship ever looking so beautiful.
Colorful, whimsical, and now practical, these are the words to describe Tyler’s (Legohaulic) Christmas present for his sister. The robot parts are pinned to the backboard and can be rearranged to create endless possibilities.
