Creepy crawly or fuzzy & fluffly (yes, that’s possible in LEGO), we love our LEGO animals. Check them out here, and fall in love yourself.

Behold the Stuff of Nightmares

It floats before you, a bulbous body with a central, unblinking eye, and a large maw filled with daggerlike teeth. Smaller eyes, attached to wriggling stalks, sprout from the top of the orblike body.

Such is the Beholder, one of the most legendary and feared monsters from the annals of the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual. This incarnation, brought to us by Guy H. (V&A Steamworks), may look a bit cuter than Gary Gygax had in mind, but is no doubt just as deadly to your party.

A different approach to Modular Housing

There are many, many things that make me exceedingly happy about this creation. The color use. The stunning architecture. The lovely painting that inspired it. The full interior. The fact that Sebastiaan Arts (Aliencat) has posted something magnificent, after a lengthy hiatus.

Also, the fantastical creature doing terrible things on the first floor. That’s definitely a plus. Watch it in motion.

Tooth and nail

To complete this week’s brief exploration of unusual steampunk creations, let’s go wild …literally! First up, here’s a punked-out Kraken courtesy of Jonas (the guy that gave us the steampunk Batcave and Tumbler).

And to remind us there’s a lot more to steampunk LEGO than simply “using a lot of brown and gold”, who better than Mark Stafford with this overlooked steampunk dinosaur from 2012 (the year, not the movie).

Curiosity killed the bot.

After Tyler posted an anti-frog build, A Plastic Infinity decided to show us Frogs are smarter than the average bot, with this amusing build:

ExploreBot's Demise

While it was definitely the humour that caught my eye (not to mention the cute little frog), there are actually a lot of fantastic build techniques he’s used in the bot itself. From the brilliantly illegal shoulder joint connections, to the marvelous finger connection – this bot just fantastic.

The Demon in the Night

Micah B.’s (Arkov) beastly villain is a fantastic creature. Titled the Mortal-Foe, it’s a great example of how good posing and careful parts usage can make a model come alive. There aren’t many more parts on display here than in the typical Bionicle/Hero-Factory set, and yet Micah’s fey being displays a great deal more personality and life (and death) than most official sets.

Friday Night Fights – Blue Mixles Match

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights! Tonight we square off some of the newest additions to the LEGO line up, it’s the Blue Mixles match. Let’s go to the tale of the tape.

In the blue corner we, have Gregory Coquelz (Yatkuu) and his light blue Mixles:

In the umm… bluer corner, Jimmy (6kyubi6) and his dark blue Mixles:
Kyubixels

As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this bout by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Small Starfighters, Vince won 11-4 with his brilliant use of the Galidor piece. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
