Behold, the Kraken awakes! Iain Heath (Ochre Jelly) debuted his “KR-KN Destroyer Destroyer” at SEALUG’s LEGO display at Emerald City Comicon last month, and I’ve been waiting impatiently for him to get it online. The official LEGO Star Wars 10221 Super Star Destroyer set is, frankly, a bit dull, so Iain has jazzed it up Continue reading →

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.
Happy Easter, folks. Here’s a cheery Easter Bunny for you, courtesy of flickr user Brickbucki. This is a great sculpture, though I can’t help but think the rabbit looks slightly crazed. But I guess that’s what comes from having to paint and hide millions of eggs.
Ever since the mutalisk buff, in Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm, this Zerg flyer has been massively popular in games. It looks like Mike Nieves (retinence) got the message and made his own to join his Zerg swarm. You can see more photos on Imgur.
Alex Jones (Orion Pax) has got one lucky little puppy, for it has quite possibly the greatest dog house ever. The house itself is very nicely designed, but it is clearly the accessories that kick up the cool factor. Check out Alex’s website for more views.
Schfio made them and they are too adorable for words. Tama and Friends is Japanese Anime series that originally ran in 1994.
I don’t really know what to say about Karf’s latest creation…except that he wins the internet for making a LEGO dude with a purple moustache and translucent red boots.
Jon Blackford has made this fantastic diorama illustrating what might happen to an unfortunate Neo-Classic-Space landing party. He’s got a great style going on here with the limited colors and the nifty shaping of the rock platform.
Husband and wife team Sean and Steph Mayo are known for being among the craziest builders out there, churning out stunning models at an unbelievable pace. Their latest work, built for the on-going Iron Builder contest (where they’re up against stiff competition, even for them!) is a mind-blowing coral reef, all decked out in the Continue reading →
I’m reading paleontologist Richard Fortey’s Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms right now, learning all about the weird and wonderful fauna of the Ediacaran and early Cambrian, so I was happy to encounter this lovely red arthropod by Bart De Dobbelaer. Bart’s big bug is of course thoroughly modern, lovingly mounted for display in his cabinet Continue reading →
I’m not one-hundred percent certain what this is, but given the builder’s (62778grenouille) history of creating other gorgeous models from Miyazaki’s films, I’m guessing this is the giant horsefly, or ushiabu, from Miyazaki’s 1984 masterpiece, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. In any case, it’s a fantastic and slightly terrifying creature, with some really Continue reading →
A new style of collaboration was introduced to the Flickr Lego community when a group of builders (myself included) simultaneously posted creations depicting a tribe of polar bear warriors. Check out our creations on the Flickr group and learn how to build your own polar bear.
The hydralisk is one of the most iconic creatures in the game of StarCraft, and Mike Nieves‘ Lego rendition captures the ferociousness of this feared zerg beast. Mike recently made an infestor and has plans to build other zerg units as well, and I can’t wait to see them.
Sometimes it’s not the biggest models that make a splash, as Michael Jasper proves with this stunning dolphin sculpture. And, no, I don’t think Michael intended a Hitchhiker’s Guide reference, but that’s what I think of every time I see dolphins.
rack911 thinks his vampire is cute, but I find it a little disturbing (but in an enjoyable sense).
I love Ewoks! When I was but a wee lad, I would run around the forest with a stick pretending I was on Endor. I even named my parents’ dog Wicket :) So seeing Eric Druon’s (Baronsat) recent LEGO Star Wars creation just had me smilin’. He is just too darn cute :D
