I suspect I’m the last person on the planet who hasn’t seen Avatar yet (though I’ve never watched James Cameron’s Titanic either). Harvey Cu seems to have caught a showing of the latest epic, resulting in a rather nice Thanator beast:
LEGO Bionicle models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
Bionicle was a line of sets that grew out of the LEGO Technic line that LEGO produced between 2001 and 2010, succeeded by Hero Factory. Bionicle had an incredibly complex storyline that accompanied the sets, and most of the elements didn’t integrate well with traditional SYSTEM bricks. As a result, long-time adult fans like the contributors here on The Brothers Brick never quite appreciated what Bionicle had to offer, so most of the LEGO models we feature here on The Brothers Brick are built from traditional SYSTEM bricks. Nevertheless, we do appreciate a great Bionicle creation from time to time.
Bright. Colorful. Creative. Life-like. Suntastic. Not quite a loss for words, too many adjectives to describe this cool sculpture, Helios, by David Pickett (fallentomato). Via The Living Brick. Good catch, OJ!
LEGO has just announced that 2010 will be the last year for new Bionicle sets; starting summer 2010 a new line of similar buildable figures will be released. This will mark the end of nine years since the arrival of the first Toa in 2001. Below is the official announcement from LEGO: Dear BIONICLE Fans, Continue reading →
If I were a secret agent, I’d want one of these Tri-Runners by The Zipper. The gears give an appearance of functionality and the color combo makes this robot remarkable.
UPDATE: High-res photos of LEGO Atlantis sets are now out. ——– Alexander (Shurik) posted pictures of some of the 2010 sets that LEGO has displayed at a sponsored event in Russia called Festival Rossiyskogo Fan Forum Lego. The featured sets include samples from the following themes: Atlantis, Toy Story, Prince of Persia, Star Wars, Power Continue reading →
Juho William serves up this surreal creation. Everything seems to come together perfectly to create a creepy sense of wonder. I’m fascinated and can’t stop looking at it.
This giant cyborg eyeball by Matt Armstrong (monsterbrick) is just a little bit creepy. It’s Halloween every day at Matt’s house, so I’m looking forward to him really gearing up for this coming holiday with more great creations like this one. In his case, I’ll forgive the starting holiday decoration and building two months in Continue reading →
Cameron (Primus) draws inspiration from Greek and Roman mythology for his latest Bionicle creation.
Guy Himber (V&A Steamworks) recently kicked off a series of LEGO creations that each incorporate a Knights Kingdom II shield. Guy started with a clockwork lionfish (above) and followed it with an eagle ray (below). As always, Guy combines SYSTEM, Duplo, and Bionicle elements in new and interesting ways.
Matt Armstrong isn’t called MonsterBrick for nothing. Especially since he recently gave birth to this incredibly awesome death machine. He also took new pics just for us, so we were forced to blog it. Otherwise he might have let this thing loose on us….
I think we’re past being amazed that Bionicle builders do some cool stuff, but as a SYSTEM builder, I just don’t have the vocabulary to discuss Bionicle intelligently. Maybe learning the lingo is Step 2 in my 12-step acceptance of Bionicle… Regardless of my inability to say anything relevant about it, I think this tank Continue reading →
BioniBlogger Ean H. (Arpy) is a talented Bionicle builder himself. The large wheels from LEGO Power Miners vehicles on Titanus’ forearms give a sense of how huge this mecha is. See more on Brickshelf.
This creature by Harry44 was not something I needed to see in the early hours of the morning. Is this supposed to by Ronald McDonald? Maybe. Maybe not. Either way, its kind of scary… I’m afraid to go out to my car…I’ll have to wait until the sun comes up now.
We don’t blog enough Bionicle creations, but that doesn’t mean that good ones aren’t out there. Check out this robotic horror by JP-54 for the BBC #53 contest. The creation exploits the diversity and biomechanical form of Bionicle pieces to create the perfect texture for a terror-inspiring monster.
Justin Vaughn (Mainman) has been using Bionicle parts from 8978 Skrall to create this novelty space faction called the Hellionic Conclave. The primary features of these diabolical creations highlight the interesting shapes of Bionicle elements mixed with the standard System bricks. Above: Devil’s Talon.
