Friday Night Fights (Round 31)

Happy New Year Fight Fans! It’s 2014 and we have a long season ahead of us. For tonight’s fight we bring you the duel of the dragons. Let’s go to the tale of the tape:

In the red corner, from the literary scene to the big screen we have Jonas (Legopard) and his Smaug the Stupendous:
Fire and Water

In the opposite blue corner, from the big screen down to the tv screen we have Stormbringer and his Skrill Showdown:

As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pugilistic endeavor by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, the battle of knights vs demons ended with a score of of 3-1 for Moko’s Knight Gundam. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!

Now You Must Face the Future

It comes as no surprise that the dynamic duo Sean and Steph Mayo (Siercon and Coral) have yet again produced another stunning model that nudges the boundaries of building possibilities a little further out. The Intelligence, as this model is named, is inspired by the classic pin-art toy, and seems to be straight from the pages of a surrealism guidebook.

The Grass Is Always Greener in Sandy Lego

Matt (MonsterBrick) has a cheery outlook today, bringing us this slice paradise in the pastoral plastic world of the brick. In keeping with his usual M.O., Matt has lots of nifty parts-usages, most notably the creative rainbow and that lovely little well. The classic scalloped-edged sun rising over the hills made from the jungle headdress is also a nice touch.

Great Library at Saltoro

Typically for castle builds we see…castles. Medieval villages and the like. Wandering bands of thieves and vagabonds, fearless knights, and the occasional dragon. There’s a handful of awe-inspiring cathedrals for diversity.

What we don’t often get are places of learning. Brian Corredor presents his Great Library at Saltoro, for your viewing and learning pleasure.

This fabulous library is an entry into Classic-Castle’s Colossal Castle Contest. You can head over there and check out the prizes and enter yourself!

The Crown Knights’ Castle on the Rocks

It comes as no surprise that Kiwi builder David Hensel (Legonardo Davidy) has produced another fantastic castle. I really like the base on this one, as David is perfecting the slope-built rock technique. The wood-plank front door is also quite nice, and the stone walls have just enough texturing to look appropriately weathered without going overboard.

Enter into Erebor, the dwarf city from The Hobbit

Blake Baer and Jack Bittner showcased their third castle collaboration at BrickFair earlier this year, and now they have taken photos of the display for everyone to enjoy. The creation uses around 80,000 pieces and stands 4’8″ tall. It features a colorful marketplace, a beautiful wooded area and of course, the gate of Erebor. You can see the entire gallery on Flickr along with a video and a shot with the builders for scale. If you want to see construction photos, check out more on MOCpages.
