There was a time when LEGO released books of ideas, when trains were a flagship property, when a LEGO license was something you used to drive at LEGOland. That time was the 80s and that time produced 7777. But it was not a perfect time. We now have new parts, new colours, new techniques, and Continue reading →

Fat Tony 1138‘s concept fighter resembles the letter “i,” which was done intentially to qualify for FBTB’s alphabet fighter contest.
There are good builds and there is good presentation, but they don’t always go together. Chris Malloy has them both, no question about it. With this creation he takes us on a fascinating adventure across an infernal lake, aboard a gloriously improbable craft. This was built for Forbidden Cove’s monthly seedpart contest.
And now for something completely different. I seldom build anything Pirate and I’ve never tried anything quite like this before. The goofy look on his face appeals to me, so I may have to leave it together for awhile…at least until Talk Like a Pirate Day. By the way, this was built for Forbidden Cove’s Continue reading →
Many years ago, Mark Neumann introduced a mecha challenge to the unsuspecting LEGO world on LUGNET. Its name was Iron Mecha. Its premise was simple: build a mecha based on a design Mark posted. The winner was an uninspiring chap called Mark Stafford who never went on to much. He did have a pretty cool Continue reading →
