I promise, we are not in fact contractually obligated to blog all Portal or Valve-inspired LEGO creations. But this Spontaneous Portal Generator Prototype II (aka Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device) by Neaku (also on Flickr) definitely caught my eye:
This is a rather old one, by Kevin Huxhold. I’ve never seen it before so I’m blogging it! Why? Because I can! And it’s really cool….
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.
Below: an underwater boat and a steam carriage.

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.
