Spencer Rezkalla (Spencer R) is a master of micro-scale skyscrapers, and his models have been featured on TBB many times. That does not stop me from calling your attention to his latest project, however. The US may be known for cities full of skyscrapers, such as Chicago and New York, but nowadays most such buildings Continue reading →
LEGO China models on The Brothers Brick
One of the world’s oldest cultures, China has given the world everything from fireworks to pasta. The culture and history of the “Middle Kingdom” continue to inspire LEGO builders all across the globe.
I’m not completely sure what’s going on with fvin&yan’s latest effort, but the unfortunate fellow with the dapper hat is about to get a knife to the face! This model is simply stunning from top to bottom and features a pleasingly wide range of color. Perhaps one of our readers can help with the translation Continue reading →
Ericmok from Hong Kong built a scene from Romance of the Three Kingdoms in the style of a Chinese painting, using monochrome shades to mimic the effect of a painting in black ink. The scroll background is a perfect way to frame the scene, making it very presentable. His jade seal is also worthy of Continue reading →
Whether you are familiar with Lego podcasts, they provide unique knowledge about the hobby. LAML Radio and A Look At Lego Podcast are two sources I’m aware of that regularly post new episodes and interviews. I want to highlight the most recent show from LAML Radio containing interviews with Andy Hung and Schneider Cheung, two Continue reading →
Flickr user lisqr has built this wonderful microscale model of one of the most impressive architectural feats in mankind’s history, the Great Wall of China. While the real Great Wall was several thousand miles long, lisqr employs a nifty series of connected vignettes to capture the wall’s serpentine path.
As OJ says over on The Living Brick, “The great thing about Japan and China using the same zodiacal chart but celebrating the New Year on different dates is that I get to do this twice!” Indeed. Schneider Cheung celebrates the Year of the Dragon with the most wonderfully sculpted Chinese dragon I’ve ever seen. Continue reading →
The talented group of LEGO fans in Hong Kong have put together a large exhibit organized by and hosted in Cityplaza from April 15 – May 2. There are 3 sections of the display. The first features a panel of storyboards detailing development of the LEGO Company. The second is a display of 2,000 figures Continue reading →
The annual Hong Kong Lego convention called Brick Adventure took place in late January of this year, and you’re probably wondering why we’re making an event wrap-up post almost two months later. Despite the late timing, we don’t want you to miss out on seeing many of the unique Asia-themed and high-quality models worth mentioning Continue reading →
Hong Kong LEGO fan Schfio recently posted a pair of rabbits that are so cute I’m not sure what could be cuter. Although we welcomed the Year of the Rabbit with our Japanese readers back in January, most of the rest of the world celebrates the Lunar New Year alongside our readers in China. To Continue reading →
Tsang Yiu Keung (chiukeung) built a microscale replica of the China Pavilion that dominates Expo 2010. I’ve been wanting to build this structure since visiting the expo earlier this month, but there’s no need now. It even has lights.
Never has junk looked so good. Sorry. This Chinese Junk by ArzLan is a thing of beauty and it’s chock full of cool techniques. I’m loving that flag. Edit: This will be displayed at Brick Adventure 2011 in Hong Kong.
You don’t have to have been in China to recognize the distinct Chinese architecture portrayed in Andy Hung‘s rendition of the Wong Tai Sin Temple in Hong Kong. The intricate layering of multi-colored plates simulates the colorful ornamentation on the actual building. Check out the full gallery where you can see the complete creation featuring Continue reading →
I don’t know about you, but I got my red envelope on Chinese New Years a few weeks back. Here, two builders from Asia, rack911 and MrH have created the God of Wealth (財神). You can see the character 財, meaning wealth, depicted in both creations (in the latter it appears on the stand). Here’s Continue reading →
Vincent Cheung‘s Chinese opera display is an incredible work of art that captures the essences of one of the oldest drama art forms in the world. The creation depicts the iconic colorful costume with its intricate designs and even the painted/masked face. The whole build is nothing short of gorgeous.
The recent Beijing Olympics — and NBC’s coverage of them here in the U.S. — painted a picture of the People’s Republic of China as a veritable utopia of modernism in harmonious balance with ancient tradition. In this vignette depicting alleged organ-harvesting of Falun Gong detainees, Rocko suggests that the truth may not be so Continue reading →
