Kidthor has concocted a smooth blend of System and Bionicle. It’s rather scary too….
Besides being a special effects artist behind some of your favorite movies, Guy Himber recently entered into the frenzy of LEGO building after an inspiring BrickCon experience. I’ve not seen fans come out of their dark ages with such stunning creations.
Above: a giant steampunk automaton and a fantasy victorian pipe organ, both in minifig style.
I really like Guy’s innovative combination of Bionicle elements with standard LEGO bricks. To him, these parts are reminiscent of “the NeoVictorian flavor with their small pistons, mini rivets and swooping/rounded shapes.” Also interesting is the repeated use of the blue bubble canopy, which seems to mimic an energy source and adds a nice touch of character to his style.

Nathan Proudlove has grown -I mean built- his own mutant man-eating plant, Audrey II (from Little Shop of Horrors, entirely out of Bionicle pieces. Incredibly, this is Nathan’s first Bionicle creation. Nathan was inspired after listening to an interview of Bryce McGlone, who was recently featured on LAML.
Brickshelf user LOVEJOINT has a score of interesting Bionicle creations in his gallery. Check out this goliath made from mishmashed Bionicle armor and parts. The style is much reminiscent of the Transformers from the movie, and if all parts had been in black, I would hail this builder as a LEGO Giger.
The intrepid retro-space astronauts of Chrispockster‘s exploratory crew continue to encounter fascinating residents of the Planet Nidoria. Nidorians are of course famous for their bright green thoroughbred mounts (that’s a Bionicle creature put to excellent use):
The crew itself has recently received an upgrade, accompanied by Robbie the Robot:
Cagerrin‘s poor Bionicle frog must have lost a leg, but Cagerrin is a kind soul, so now the frog has a mechanical leg:
Since the leg is apparently steam-powered, this is our first post to contain the word “frogpunk” (though not the first reference to the concept). See Cagerrin’s Brickshelf gallery for delicious froggy goodness.
Brickshelf user edulyoung built a commanding figure of Darth Vader. Using Technic, Bionicle, and System parts, edulyoung mashes these eclectic piece together with interesting results. While Vader’s proportion’s aren’t 100% accurate, he certainly boosts an imposing form.
