BZPower member The Zipper recently posted this “hornet-like creature” that you probably wouldn’t meet in your great aunt’s garden — not that you’d want to!
The Zipper’s design also gives her creature a look akin to a Zerg Mutalisk — another nasty beast whose acquaintance you’d best avoid.
Thanks for the link, Joey!
Mark Stafford (Nabii) is a master at incorporating LEGO SYSTEM and Bionicle elements into his creations. While the wings on his Flitterfly ornithopter are Bionicle, the cockpit and fuselage are almost entirely SYSTEM.
I’m particularly keen on the radial engine and the Viking tiles on the tail.
See more on MOCpages or Brickshelf.
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:
Via BioniBlog, where Ean has a nice overview of the latest Bionicle Building Contest over at BZPower.
This is the second time this weekend that we’ve shown flowers leading to deadly consesequences. Look at what Megan Rothrock has created – an overly abundant pink diorama with an insect decapitating a poor space explorer who picked the wrong flower. Lesson learned, don’t pick flowers.
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….
Bundalings takes inspiration from indie rockers Eisley for Bionicle Building Contest 51 — a “bat with butterfly wings”:
Check out more pictures on Brickshelf (and download “Marvelous Things” from , if you like).
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.

I’ve not encountered the BrickBoys before but their Etyvon fighter displays a masterful integration of Bionicles and regular LEGO to create very unusual shapes and texturing. The colour variants are nice too. Be warned though that the images are big so it’s not for slow connections.
Patrick Biggs (Ahava516 on Flickr) built an impressive and formidable Bionicle dragon for the BBC (Bionicle Based Creation) Contest #50 on BZPower. Check out the scales on the neck and the use of ninja hang-glider flaps for the wings (a technique which reminds me of Bryce McGlone’s Dragon).
