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.
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.
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!
Tyler (The Deathly Halliwell) has long been one of my favorite builders of all things Del Toro. He’s probably the only builder that can take the fantastic creatures from Del Toro and sculpt them so beautifully…I regretted not blogging his Faun earlier this year, but thankfully he’s added the Pale Man to his growing collection:
And if that wasn’t enough, Tyler also did another Del Toro movie icon Hellboy:
The steampunk take on the famous painting is brilliantly done keeping the spirit of the original, while still making any LEGO Steampunker happy. The boiler assembly and the simplistic details on the legs just makes me zoom and just ogle some of the techniques used.
Vlad Lisin‘s Bionicle parrot has all the right parts in the right place, making it one of the most realistic Bionicle creations I’ve seen. The use of the Belville witch’s hat for the beak is sheer brilliance.
I’m embarrassed to say I had no idea what a Tengu was before I saw Cade Roster’s (Apocalust) delightful build.
Using the new awesome Mixle sets, Cade has recreated this Japanese creature of legend:
The face is dead on and this little guy is just pure fun!
Welcome back fight fans, to Hong Kong for a special Chinese New Year bout. What’s more fitting than a day at the races to usher in the year of the Horse?. Let’s go down for the Pre-race Paddock Inspection:
Starting at Gate 1 we have schfio with this black stallion:
In gate 9 we have Kazumi and Omar Ovalle with their brown horse already in mid stride:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pony race by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, the architecture action was a bit lopsided like the Tower of Pisa with Patrick Bosman winning by a score of 13-6. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
